Soy is a long-standing “hot topic” in the nutrition and health industry, mainly because there are so many conflicting opinions and studies that fall on various ends of the spectrum. It can be super confusing when you are trying to navigate the world of soy and I know many people who avoid it altogether because they are just so confused about it!Read More
Balance is a word that gets used a lot in the health and wellness world. A lot of what gets posted on social media is all how we should all be striving to get that balance in our lives when it comes to eating healthy and enjoying the foods that we love. But the problem is, it’s basically an elusive concept as it’s completely subjective!Read More
The world of food labels, nutrition fact panels and ingredient lists can be a confusing one. There are SO many different claims and things that draw your focus when you’re looking at a packaged food product. It can be really confusing and overwhelming!Read More
I received a request from one of my followers a few weeks ago for me to talk about eating healthy on a budget. I thought this was such a great question! So the other week I ran a poll on my Instagram stories to see if anyone else wanted to learn more about this and 100% of people voted ‘yes’. Clearly, this is a topic that needs to be addressed!Read More
The world of supplements can be confusing and overwhelming.
There are literally thousands of products available to us as consumers and it can be really overwhelming and confusing when you are trying to choose a product. There is SO much information out there on supplements- some of it can be helpful and some of it can be misleading and/or incorrect.Read More
This week I’m talking all about supplementation for gut health!
The supplement world can be so confusing, especially when it comes to probiotics. There are so many different brands, price points, colony forming units (more on what that means below!), and strains of bacteria. It can be very confusing when you are trying to decide what brand to buy and what strength you need.Read More
This week I’m diving a little deeper into foods to focus on for optimal digestion. There are so many ways that we can help support our digestion through eating the right foods and removing those foods that are difficult for your body to break down.Read More
I wanted to create this series because I am a gut health nerd and I love talking about digestion and how important it is for our health. I also wanted to do an educational series on it because I find so many people have questions about digestion (and poop for that matter). I know how important this topic is because I see digestive complaints in virtually every client that I see. I have yet to see a client with perfect digestion!Read More
As with everything else in nutrition, there is a right way and a wrong way to go about proper recovery fuel. It can be confusing when you read articles that talk about the macro-nutrient or 'macro' ranges. You’ll often read that you need to make sure you’re getting the proper ratio of carbs and protein that equals 3:1 or 4:1. What the $#!* does that mean and how are you supposed to calculate that?!Read More
This weekend I will be accomplishing my ultimate, long-standing goal of completing a half marathon. I call this my ultimate goal because it’s something I’ve wanted to accomplish for so long. It’s been on my mind for a while and it always seemed like something that was so far out of reach for me to do.Read More
My vacation to Mexico is finally here! I am so excited to hit the beach this week, enjoy some sunshine and most importantly: relax and recharge. It’s been a busy few months so this vacation could not have come at a better time.Read More
As you may or may not have noticed, the new tagline for Deliciously Nourished is ‘Nutrition Simplified.’ When I went through my little re-brand a couple of months ago, I knew I wanted to have a tagline that would resonate with my followers and people visiting my website. I wanted it to be something that was a positive first impression on my website, and something that highlighted what my practice and my mission are all about.Read More
