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.
Let's do a little review of the last few months, shall we? November was all about Thanksgiving, and even though that's just one day, it kind of becomes a whole month of excitement and indulging. Right? Then comes December, AKA treat yo'self month! Alllll the sugar, carbs, and wine on repeat. January... While we all wanted to set healthy resolutions, we're kind of in a sugar and carb hangover from the holidays, so it takes these intentions a while to actually become a reality. Who's with me? This brings us to February, which I've decided to rename FebYOUary. It's the month of love... and I don't mean loving your significant other, spouse, or fling... I mean it's the month to love YOURSELF! Once and for all!
Any other last minute holiday shoppers out there? I can't believe Hanukkah starts in 4 days and Christmas is just over two weeks out ... time to do some serious shopping! While I'm struggling with what to get some of my family members, I do have a pretty solid list of gift ideas for your favorite foodie or the hostess with the mostess - either because I use some of these things constantly, or because they're on my holiday wish-list! Hopefully this will help you find the perfect gift for the cooks, bakers, and entertainers in your life, or you can send it along to your family members who are still shopping for YOU (hint, hint, wink, wink!)!
Remember a couple weeks back when I partnered with Inspired by This to share my go-to shopping list for Trader Joe's? Well we're back at it, and this time we're perusing the aisles of Whole Foods! I know grocery shopping can sometimes feel like an overwhelming task. There are so many products out there, and it's hard to decide which ones are actually healthy choices. Here are a few of the products that I just can't leave the store without, and in the full post on Inspired by This, we're breaking down ALL of the best options and sharing a giant list that you can pin for your next trip to Whole Foods!
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!
