Bison Stew, Insta Pot Recipe

We are driving through the mountains as we speak. We have had such a busy couple of days and have an even busier weekend ahead of us. We are traveling, spending time with both of our mothers, setting aside some time for end of semester parties, and making time for trail runs and climbing sessions.

Our Tiny House

As some of you know, my husband and I decided a couple months after we were engaged that building a Tiny House was something that we wanted to do. We thought about it long and hard for months and drew design after design, we saved up enough money to buy a trailer and then after about the second floor tapeing, 50th long conversation of pros and cons, hours of budgeting, and after

Lemon Chia Seed Energy Bites

We are both big snackers in this house. My husband and I eat a lot, and three meals in a day is just not enough to keep us satisfied or to meet our caloric requirements for the day. We do often buy some protein bars and other snack foods to have on hand, but I try to make a lot of our snacks at home. We are also extremely busy and active people, so having options that are portable,

Liver Detox Tea

On Wednesday, I wrote a post about supporting the liver through diet, nutrients, herbs, and lifestyle. I may have gotten a little nerdy, but what can I say, that’s what I love. I also am a big fan of providing depth of information so that my clients, you, and anyone else I talk to can understand the greater picture and decide what works for them. I often tell my clients that they have the answers inside of them. They know more about what their body needs than any book, expert, or consultant does

Eating for a Healthier Liver

Almost all my clients need liver support. In fact, everyone I have ever met needs foods and herbs that will support their liver. There are several reasons for this. It’s not because they all smoke (they don’t), it’s not because they drink a lot of booze(most of them drink less than I do), and it’s not because they are eating a ton of crap. In fact, I have been surprised

Overtraining Syndrome and How To Avoid It

Can we talk about something? I feel like overtraining doesn’t get spoken about very often in the fitness industry. We talk about it a lot in the nutrition and health world. But in the fitness community, it often gets over shadowed by the “no pain, no gain,” “no days off” mentality. I have to admit, I am guilty of this myself- but to my own detriment.

A Basic Guide To Meal Prepping

It’s Easter Sunday, and I have to confess we are not doing anything. I’m sitting outside of my parent’s suburban home watching the neighbor’s kids find hard boiled eggs throughout their yard. But this weekend has been awesome! We went for a five-mile run with a local running group, followed by free brunch and beermosas. Does it get any better?!

Avoiding Adrenal Fatigue: 10 Steps to Stress-Less

Guys, this week has been an absolute whirlwind! I cannot believe that it is Friday! Both my husband and I were just talking about how we thought Wednesday was Monday, and I thought yesterday was Tuesday, all day. I don’t want to go into too much detail yet but we have had a lot of stuff going on in our lives this week. Good stuff, big stuff, exciting stuff!

Eating for Health vs. Eating for Performance

Good morning fit foodies! Happy FriYay. What are your weekend plans? Ours are a little scattered, I know there is a lot of work involved, but I think there will be some climbing in there too. Today, I have a bit of a heavier topic. I want to talk about something that is extremely important to discuss both for the fitness industry and for alternative health and wellness care (i.e health coaching, wellness, nutritional therapy, coaching etc.). This post is for those of you

Black Bean Beet Burgers

Good morning tribe! I just cannot believe how much it is raining here. Remember last week when I talked about the pouring rain on our Tiny House metal roof? Well, it’s still here! And it’s expected to continue through tonight and tomorrow. We have had plans to go climbing tomorrow and I, personally, have been dreaming of all things sunshine, BBQs, and beers on the porch. Alas, I will just have to share the BBQ party with you here instead of on our porch. Today, I have a
