As many of you know I am all about stress-free, healthy eating and meal prepping to ensure that we are prepared for a chaotic week when we do not have time to cook. Ideal balanced meals will have a combination of fiber, greens, healthy fats, and clean protein. Many of my clients worry about not having healthy meals prepared for the week ahead. Here are 2 easy, quick and delicious salad- spirations, as well as one breakfast in a jar that will be perfect for your busy week ahead.
These super-food-filled protein-packed bites are perfect for a pre-workout boost or mid-day recharge. Turmeric and ginger are gut-loving, anti-inflammatory foods that will have your body giving you a high five!

Did you just return from an intense workout at the gym or attend a Soul Cycle class? You probably broke a good sweat and are feeling great but a bit dehydrated. When you sweat during your workouts, you loose essential minerals and electrolytes. Replacing and replenishing these lost minerals and electrolytes is key to your recovery.
One of the most common questions I get from clients is, “What should I eat post-workout?” I know many of my clients look to grab protein bars or protein smoothies but many of these items can be high in high fructose corn syrup and other preservatives. Most protein powders do more harm than good because of all of the synthetic amino acids and other processed and artificial ingredients they contain.
