Chia Pudding

One of the struggles I see so often with ladies, especially when carb-cycling (and especially on low carb days)  is not getting enough fiber! And while veggies are my favorite source of fiber it’s amazing when you cut out the whole grains how many veggies you have to consume to get that 25 + grams of fiber a day. Enter chia pudding. It’s easy to make, super low carb and super high fiber. It’s basically a low carb day lifesaver!

Cabbage and Noodles

With St. Patrick’s Day less than a week away I figured I would share my go-to tradition of Haluski or cabbage + noodles. Haluski is a traditional Polish dish made of fried cabbage and egg noodles. It bakes up into a dish of buttery comfort food. Why I make it for St Paddy’s Day? No idea haha. Maybe because of the cabbage?? Regardless, it’s a comfort meal in my house and it couldn’t be easier. If I am getting fancy I make it with fresh egg noodles (either homemade or storebought) but you can also use dried fettuccine. And if you’re cooking up the whole pound follow the same instructions just pick up a large cabbage instead of a small one and use a little extra butter. This dish also reheats extremely well so I always make extra! Give it a try and let me know what you think. Come Sunday you’ll most likely find me with a big ole’ bowl of this stuff + a Jameson cocktail (still trying to figure out what that might be).. stay tuned!

How to Meal Plan with A Healthy Passion to Reach Your Goals

Meal planning is one KEY tool that I have depended on to help me stay on track with my healthy lifestyle. Since launching TRIM boot camp this summer I have become obsessed with using macro meal plans to help busy women lose weight and finally reach their healthy living goals while getting to enjoy real food meals. No measuring, no weighing and no counting just cooking delicious recipes that the whole family will love.

If you want to reach your health goals, stay on track with your healthy lifestyle or finally lose the weight, but don’t want dinner to be 4 oz chicken, 1/2 cup rice and 1 cup of broccoli, I feel ya! That’s exactly why I designed A Healthy Passion Macro Meal Planning tool. It gives you exactly what you need without feeling like you’re on a restrictive diet or meal plan.
