Weight Loss

Take a “digestion vacation”

Even if you eat the Beyond Diet way, focusing mostly on nutritious, fat-burning foods, chances are pretty good that your digestive system is working hard around the clock to turn all of that delicious food into life-giving fuel. And if you eat the SAD (that’s “Standard American Diet”) way, then your digestive system is working way, way harder. Even a small amount of wheat, soy or sugar can cause inflammation in your intestines that makes your whole system overwork. Foods like red meat, beans and dairy are just naturally difficult to digest, putting extra stress on your digestion. Add to that the undue pressure we put on our bodies by

Here’s EXACTLY what to cook this week

Getting dinner on the table is sometimes not as easy as I would like it to be. As much as I am super organized and plan my dinner recipes in advance, I have learned that many times something will come up to derail me from getting a home cooked meal on the table. That is why I have learned NOT to depend on the afternoon for my meal prep time.

I know for some people that may not be possible, but for

Avocados, onions, and peppermint – what you need to know

Just recently my husband and I went to the Bahamas on vacation (this was our first official vacation since our 5 year old was born!) Like many people on vacation, we splurged on many foods we would NOT typically eat at home…dense, cream filled meals, breaded meats, and, you guessed it, dessert.

7 days is all you need

Almost every day, my children teach me something valuable. Read below as I share how you can implement the same strategy I used with my son’s morning routine to reach your own weight loss goals. Morning routines can be a challenge for anyone. But recently, my husband and I were really being challenged by our oldest, Christian, who was just being “resistant” to getting dressed and out the door to school on time. Christian would be perfectly happy all morning long, and very much looking forward to going to school, but once we told him it was time to get dressed he would melt down. I didn’t quite understand it
