So you know those nights when you're trying to throw together a quick dinner and there's literally nothing in the fridge? It seems absolutely impossible to whip up something healthy without any fresh ingredients, so you end up boiling pasta again. We've all been there. That's why I'm all about keeping the freezer stocked. I always have a large pack of frozen wild-caught salmon (actually a great deal at Whole Foods!), several bags of frozen cauliflower rice, and frozen greens. And thanks to the trusty instant pot, that's about all you need to make a healthy dinner come together in 10 minutes flat!
Going all-natural with my skincare is something that's been on my list for a long time. It took me a while and a lot of baby steps to get there, but I'm really excited that I've finally found a regimen that works for me. You may be wondering why it's an important thing to do, and I was the same way. But think about it... we spend all of this time and energy buying healthy, organic groceries, reading ingredient labels, and putting the best foods in our body, but what about what we use on our bodies?
It's the first day of August and it's 85 degrees in San Diego, so safe to say, summer is going to be sticking around for a while! Which means it's the perfect time to whip up this Watermelon Mint & Arugula Salad that I shared recently on Inspired by This. It's beyond easy - only just a couple minutes and a few simple ingredients stand between you and the ultimate summer salad. The combination of the watermelon and mint with a drizzle of balsamic glaze is absolutely delicious and so refreshing for this Southern California heat wave! Plus the colors are gorge!
Even though I’m still a bit jet-lagged from our trip to Italy, I’m already dreaming of going back! Between the insanely delicious food, the romantic cities, gorgeous sites, the Aperol Spritzes (order one, trust me!), and the Italian lifestyle that just forces you to slow down and enjoy every moment, it’s definitely become my happy place! As I was sharing our daily adventures on my insta stories, I got a ton of a requests for a “guide to Italy” with all of our favorite restaurants, hotels, and activities. So I used the long flight home to get all the details in one place and I’m super excited to share it with you! Please send me a message or comment on this post if you end up going to any of these spots… I’ll be so excited to hear about your experience there!! Allora i miei amici, here we go…
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.
