Quinoa – Kale – Sweet Potato Salad

It’s been a while since I wrote something on the blog. It was the Holidays and wanted to be more present with my family and decided to be on the computer as little as possible. Since I work from home as a banking consultant and health & wellness coach, I couldn’t shut down completely but I did the best I could and had to give up blogging during the Holidays. Which is OK because I got some great quality time with the kids. even if it meant watching TV with them.

It was so cold during the Christmas break that we didn’t venture out much other than going to see family, going to the gym, and grocery shopping. It was absolutely fine as our lives can be so hectic with school, homework, and after school activities.    Read More →

Cherry Tomato & Mozzarella Cheese Pasta

Even with my family’s crazy schedule, I still make it a priority to make home cooked meals whenever possible…at least on school days Not only is it less expensive but it’s healthier, too!

I love “Meatless Mondays.” Even if it’s just once a week (I would like to do more!) cutting meat out of your diet can make a huge difference. There are so many yummy and satisfying plant-based proteins available. So, why wouldn’t you?! Quinoa, lentils, beans, spirulina … just to name a few! It can be hard at first, especially if you are a meat-lover, but start by gradually adding in more veggies and healthy grains into your diet when you can. When you feel comfortable, try replacing at least one full meal a day with a plant based option!

I’ll be honest, my family is OB-sessed with pasta dishes. I can’t indulge as often as I like with pasta but when I do, I try to make it as healthy as possible!

My kids eat tons of apples and used to put almond butter on them until almonds made my hand joints swell.  One of the original SUPER foods, the fabulous apple!!!

Almond Milk

Almond Milk!


I have been lactose intolerant since middle school and haven’t had a glass of milk since. But little than I knew, many Americans are allergic to conventional pasteurized milk, which is different than developing an intolerance to lactose. And for other health reason, many are switching to nut milk. I, on the other hand, recently developed a nut and seed sensitivity causing major joint inflammation, swelling, and sores in my hands. So, I have to limit my nut consumption.

Almond milk provides excellent sources of protein, fiber, vitamin E, zinc, iron, selenium, magnesium, and calcium. Almonds have essential fatty acids, vitamin-like oils. Essential fatty acids are required for a healthy nervous system, anti-inflammatory effects, hormone balance and cell structure. Read More →
