One of the most common questions I get from clients, friends, and readers is how to satisfy a demanding sweet tooth without completely falling off the wagon. Believe me, I get it. I love my sweets. It's something I look forward to each day, and if someone tried to tell me I couldn't have it, I'd feel deprived and restricted, and I'd want it that much more. Then I'd probably overdo it, and feel a little guilty for going overboard. So it's important to quit the deprivation and restriction, and figure out how to indulge consciously, mindfully, and guiltlessly! Delicious sweets are supposed to make you feel satisfied and happy, after all. Here's my 5 tips to make it happen.
Does this salad just scream summer or what!? It's packed with a whole bunch of my favorite ingredients and it's definitely become a go-to meal in my kitchen. If anyone else has tried the Strawberry Coconut Kale Salad from Whole Foods, then you already know how delicious these ingredients are together. But I must say, as much as I love the Whole Foods version, I like this one even more because of the nice crunch from the red cabbage and sliced radishes, and we all know everything is just better with avocado added to it.
One of the most common questions I get from clients is what they should be buying at the grocery store. I totally get it - strolling through the grocery store and trying to choose products that are actually healthy can be a little overwhelming. There's so many options out there that sometimes you just need a little guidance. That's why I was so excited when Inspired by This asked me to give their fabulous editor, Ally, a little tour through my favorite grocery stores. First up, Trader Joe's!
There's a few reasons why I love making homemade nut mylk.
Fried rice always always brings back the same childhood memories of going to dinner with my family at our nearby teppanyaki restaurant called Samurai. We'd sit around the stove and watch the chef show off some cool tricks and cook up huge amounts of fried rice, with chicken, shrimp, and steak. We'd always leave dinner super full, and our hair and clothes always smelled like fried rice afterwards. I have to say, it's been a longgg time since I've ordered fried rice at a restaurant, but I definitely get hit with the craving from time to time. When that happens, this Cauliflower "Fried Rice" really does the trick! It's healthy, full of flavor, packed with nutrients, and doesn't leave me smelling like I bathed in oil and soy sauce!
