Are you suffering from Imposter Syndrome?

Imposter Syndrome is when, regardless of how well you perform at something or your credentials, you fear that those around you are going to judge you or "call you out" on not knowing what you're talking about. That you're a fraud. That you're actually not good at all at what you do. Prior to listening to this podcast episode, I don't think I would have used this phrase to describe myself. After it, I was easily convinced.

Preparing for My First WHOLE30 This Summer

I write this post with a lot of emotion because regardless of what I look like or what YOU think I look like or what YOU think I eat, I am frustrated. I'm frustrated when I don't know what I "can" or "should" eat so I'll feel my best. I'm frustrated when I feel like I should pass on something and I give in and eat it anyway (and then am annoyed because of it)...

The Hardest Part About Being a Health Coach (It's Not What You'd Think)

Sometimes my clients are inconsistent or we disagree. But that’s not the hardest part about what I do. I became certified as a health counselor many years ago because it's in my SOUL to help others figure out this absolutely crazy, confusing, and contradicting world of natural wellness and nutrition. It is confusing. I've changed my mind, my perspective, my programs and offers because I learned more. And here’s what I found.

Changing this one silly little word can change your entire day

Sometimes it's harder to do the things that matter, the things that are good for us. It's really ALL in how we look at it. And something that literally changed my life about a year ago was switching that ONE phrase, "have to", to the phrase "get to."

Commit to What You Really Want, and How You Talk About It

Do you ever struggle with whether or not to "let yourself off the hook" and skip the gym or have an extra cookie? Or are you being too easy on yourself and giving up on your healthy eating efforts? You could say that you are trying to do something, you're wishing for something to happen, you could or should be doing something.

Defining a Plant-Based Diet and Why It's a Big Deal

A vegan diet also includes food products that may not be super healthy, but still don’t have any form of animal product in them, like vegan cookies. You can call it what you want, but these days, a vegan cookie isn’t exactly considered a plant-based, whole food.

A whole-foods plant-based diet consists of foods that come from the earth, in their whole form. You can practice a plant-based diet, which means that you eat mostly foods that are plants like seeds, nuts, legumes, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. And guess what, you can eat this way and actually…yes…get “enough” protein in your diet.

Not everyone is going to get "you..." (and that's ok)

Not everyone is going to like that you say no to their invitations to hangout with certain groups. Not everyone is going to support you quitting your job or even who you decide to live with or marry.

Thinking Kind Thoughts

But sometimes, the moments or days that I spent pondering my experiences, my relationships, my successes and what I want to be when I grow up, sometimes, these moments get a little dark. The ability to be authentic and real and connect with others and share my gifts and make a living, while being a mother, a wife, having time for myself, a creative outlet and just enjoying life, sometimes feels nearly impossible.

My Crazy Self-Inflicted Eating Plan for January

This month, I needed to give my body a break. I was finding that not only was I struggling with some digestive distress that needed healing, but that I was really addicted to certain foods and I wanted a clean break. Now, it’s only day 4, so I may be coming to you in a week totally cranky and freaking out in “need” of some type of cheese or chocolate, but at the moment, I’m doing alright.

The One Thing Missing From Your Diet + Exercise Plan Plan

I’ve been taking supplements for years. I have always insisted on a multivitamin, omegas, and probiotics for my clients and everyone I know. I fully believe that our soil, our food production, and our ability to assimilate and absorb nutrients in our country has been compromised, and diet and exercise is just not enough any more.
