Stuffed Peppers 

I had to share this recipe because I’ve been talking about it all week. It’s one of my all-time favorite meals to prepare when detoxing. This dish is easy to make, nutritious and satisfying. Peppers are rich in fiber and vitamin C which are both incredibly important for cellular repair and flushing out toxins during detox. I choose grass-fed beef, and make sure it's hormone-free. If you’re a vegan or vegetarian, add kidney beans instead of meat. Not a fan of rice or want to add an extra protein kick?

5 Ways to Fit in Fitness When You Have No Time

People fall in and out of fitness all of the time.

I fell in love with fitness at a pretty young age. I have vivid memories of joining my mom as she’d do her at-home exercise videos or rollerblading alongside of her while she ran outdoors in a park close to home.

That frequency of exercise carried with me throughout high school and college as I prioritized time, almost every day, to lift weights or do some cardio.

Every year has them: Food fads and trends that emerge (or re-emerge) into our social feeds, conversations with loved ones or friends or on the menu at our favorite diner or restaurant.
