In 2015 I started having some uncomfortable, and frankly embarrassing, issues with my stomach and digestion. It started slowly and then all of a sudden I’d be rushing to the bathroom 10 minutes after I ate. #TMI (I’m a nutritionist, sometimes I forget talking about poop isn’t normal to everybody) I was in the first year of a new relationship and I would worry that if

Meal planning has been the biggest game changer for me to eat better, reach my goals and feel happier about my health journey. It’s helped me create a life I love by creating clarity in my diet and helping me stay on track with eating well. I love meal planning so much but I don’t always hear good things about it from other people.  There are a lot of myths about meal planning but you know what those myths really are? Excuses.

Being grateful is something everyone is talking about. If you’ve read anything about creating a better life than I’m sure you’ve read all about why it’s good for you.
