How to stay on track this Halloween

Here it comes… the Reeses. The Hershey Bars. The M&Ms. The Starburst…and dare I say it? The candy corn. Yes, I know candy corn is very polarizing to some (and I’m not sure why because it’s the best)… so if you don’t like candy corn, there is no place for you here. Just kidding. But […]

which meal plan should you do? read this first

My old brain used to say things like, ‘I wish someone would tell me what to eat, when to eat, how much to eat, and why to eat it, then I’ll get to where I want to be.’ Just short of someone spoon feeding me, I tried that. For years. Every other day I would […]

how empowerment leads to food freedom

Choosing what to eat can bring on a whole bunch of emotions. These emotions all stem from two places; whether your food choices come from empowerment or fear.

Hi friend and welcome! I hope you love a taste of sarcasm, real talk, and someone who is going to tell you pretty much the exact opposite of what diet culture has ingrained in your (read: everyones) brains.

I’m a health coach whose view of health is not being obsessed with food, enjoying exercise again, and changing the thoughts happening between your ears. If you’re looking for macros, a meal plan, or someone who’s going to monitor your weight, you’ve got the wrong girl. But if you’ve come this far, I’m pretty sure you knew that already.

But I promise you… going about health in a normal, mindful, stress-free way will change your life. For good.
