It’s back! 🙌🏻. my free e-book “a nutritionist’s guide to meal planning” is available on my website once again (and it’s prettier than ever!). get it via the direct link in my profile - start meal planning today!
I often find it difficult to prioritize exercise - there’s always something more pressing to do (or a toddler who’d really rather not sit in the stroller). but, i’m trying to make more of an effort to include moving my body as an important part of my day. this morning i put my almost-three-year-old in the jogging stroller and went for a good paced 45 minute walk. and? she only complained about being in the stroller for the last 15 minutes... i’ll take it! i hope this inspires you to get outside, even if you’re living your best #momlife and are having a hard time making yourself a priority.
This fruit plate! 🙌🏻. pineapple, blueberries, black berries, strawberries and red grapes with a simple raw dip made from cashews, coconut oil, and a touch of agave. we’re going to a local vegan families picnic this morning. hopefully my toddler doesn’t eat it all herself - she would certainly try, if i let her.

Who else is an overnight oats fan? this is such an easy breakfast and is perfect for those people who have busy mornings. a few minutes of prep the night before and, voila, a healthy breakfast the next morning. 🙌🏻
Do you ever wonder what the best sources of healthy plant-based fats are for your little one? if you answered, “yes!” then today’s “ask a plant-based nutritionist” post is for you. the link to the entire post is in my bio, but i’ll share here what two f*t sources have been well received by my toddler ever since she started baby led weaning at six months: avocado and cashew cream! these two f*t sources are so versatile and offer lots of other great vitamins and minerals too! check out my post to learn more.
The sunny days have given out to rain, but i’m still dreaming of this blueberry banana nice cream i made a few days ago. it couldn’t be simpler to make with just frozen bananas, frozen blueberries and a splash of almond milk. oh, and the power of my favorite kitchen appliance, the #vitamix 🙌🏻
There’s something so invigorating about seeing the sunrise. ☀️. my husband and i watched the sun come up this morning on top of a beautiful bluff overlooking a valley of trees. not a bad way to spend the first few hours of the weekend.
