Eat More Healthy Dessert This Year

Yes, you heard me correctly!


This year aim to eat MORE dessert.


Often when we want to be healthier, and to feel more energized and confident in our clothes, we start by depriving ourselves of the things we enjoy, like dessert.


Deprivation is never sustainable. Willpower only lasts so long. 


When we cave, we often feel down on ourselves or worse, stop working towards our goals. 


But what if we didn’t have to give up, or reduce, dessert to still be able to achieve our goals? 


What if dessert could feel like a treat AND be good for our bodies at the same time? 


What if instead of cutting out desserts we made our desserts nutrient dense and free of toxic inflammatory ingredients 


This year, I want to encourage you to have more of what you enjoy by making desserts that are nourishing to your body while containing less toxic and inflammatory ingredients. 


Here is how to make your...

Ditch Your New Year's Resolutions...Seriously! Try Stacking Tiny Habits Instead

healthy habits Jan 17, 2021

Did you know that January 17th is “National Ditch Your Resolutions Day”?  Yes, January 17th has become known as one of the most common days for people to give up on their New Year’s resolutions. Can you believe that giving up on our resolutions is so common, that it has even earned its own National holiday day?!?

We can feel pretty certain that most people are not giving up on their resolutions because they’ve decided those goals are no longer important to them.  So why, if those goals were important enough to us 3-weeks ago to make a resolution and start down the path, do we give up on them so quickly?

It really comes down to the flawed nature of resolutions themselves.  Resolutions come with this expectation to be perfect.  We decide that from a specific day forward we will ALWAYS do the action, habit or behavior (or we will NEVER do it again).  

For us humans, these are impossible expectations to meet. It’s in our nature to...

Jump Start Your 2021 Health & Fitness Success with the 9-Week Control Freak

workouts & fitness Dec 22, 2020

Generally I don’t think of myself as a "control freak" but I certainly took on those tendencies when it came to improving my health this past year.  Why?  Because it was important to me to be the best version of myself, not only for me, but also for my kids, my husband, my friends, my clients and my coaching team.  I made my health my mission because I wanted to start feeling like my old self again and show up in a way that I could make a positive impact on others. 

If you haven't read my story of how I took control of my health in 2020 through nutrition, fitness and wellness practices and was able to improve my energy, digestion, hormones, focus and even lose 15 pounds, you can read it here.

I want to invite you to become a “control freak” with me starting in January, giving you the opportunity to take control of your own health and fitness in 2021.  Join me and my fitness team as we take on the 9-week Control Freak fitness and...

20 Healthy, Nutrient Dense Holiday Recipes - Mains, Appetizers, Side Dishes & Desserts

Holiday food gets a bad rap, don’t you think?

Generally, it’s because these dishes tend to be high in calories and filled with starchy carbohydrates, sugar and processed ingredients. Combine that with overeating to the point that our pants are tight, our gut hurts, and we pass out on the couch from a blood sugar crash… there you get your bad rap.

Speaking from experience, I used to prepare myself mentally for the overeating of heavy foods that would happen on the holidays because I knew I’d feel terrible after the meal, and for the weeks to follow, until I got myself back on track.

Here’s the good news! Holiday eating doesn’t have to go like this anymore. We can make some really delicious, whole food, low sugar, and nutrient dense foods that won’t send our bodies into a code red emergency.  We don’t have to feel terrible after the meal, or guilty for eating junk, or feeling like we set ourselves back.

We can make and eat holiday...

Take control of your health with nutritional therapy and a functional approach to wellness

functional wellness Dec 10, 2020

A year ago I was struggling with chronic fatigue, nausea, heart burn and extreme bloating. I spent most of my days in complete discomfort. It hurt to eat, it hurt to button my pants, I felt nauseous at times, and often just didn’t want to eat. When I did feel hungry, I’d eat a bite, and lose my appetite.

I woke feeling “hungover” every morning and had to talk myself into getting out of bed. The discussion in my head often went something like this… “you can do it, Heather, one leg off the bed, then the other, you can do it!”  I literally had to rip myself from the sheets most mornings.  While my mind was awake, my body just couldn’t physically move.  

Over the previous 18-month period, I also mysteriously gain 10 pounds, even though I was exercising and hadn’t really changed my diet.  Needless to say, I was frustrated and wasn’t feeling very confident in my skin. 

I also was struggling...
