making the switch


"The problem with all or nothing thinking is that it keeps people from even taking the first steps." -Dr. Micahel Greger

This quote is one that really stuck with me when I first began working towards my Holistic Nutritionist Certificate. It is so true, not only with eating but for many other things in life where people want to make a change, but fear ultimately holds them back. What is holding you back from becoming the healthiest version of yourself??

Lets talk about some labels, what it means to live a healthy lifestyle, and easy ways you can transform the way you eat!

what is the deal with dates?


As someone who despises raisins I find it kind of funny that I am a big fan of dates, which just look like giant raisins. I started buying dates a couple years ago when I discovered a recipe for "raw balls" which is essentially just blended dates with whatever other ingredients you choose to add! But I realized I have been eating dates for much longer thanks to Larabars, which are delicious bars made with very minimal ingredients. Dates are not an ingredient I thought about or ever had on my shopping list for majority of my life, but I am glad they are a staple in our home now! I thought I would share my current favorite way to eat dates and some fun facts that you may or may not know!
