I’ve struggled with depression for as long as I can remember. I look back at pictures of me as a small child and I see the sadness in my eyes. Does this mean I spend my days crying? No. To be honest I RARELY cry about anything. I used to when I was a hormonal teenager, because I really had no control over my emotions, but today… depression washes over me as… Read More

Over the last few years I have become somewhat of a “biohacker”. For those who don’t know what that is, the official definition by Dave Asprey (CEO of Bulletproof, Inc.) is: “Biohacking is the process of using science, biology, and self-experimentation to take control of and upgrade your body, mind, and life. Simply put, biohacking is the art and science of changing the environment around you and inside you so you have… Read More

I was talking to a friend on the phone the other day. She’s going through some sh*t right now. She was very down, and telling me all about it. As we were talking she got another call, so I was put on hold. When she got back on she was laughing and said “Man, I can turn ‘it’ on when I need to.” She talked about how for the person she was… Read More

Tomorrow I will be 5 weeks post-op from my breast implant removal surgery. I had them removed because I believe they were causing me to have autoimmune issues from Breast Implant Illness (BII). Since my surgery I have seen small improvements… brain fog is better, my eyes and skin are brighter, inflammation has decreased in my face and body, joint pain has reduced, chronically peeling skin on my hands and feet have… Read More

I have decided to have my breast implants removed, as I do believe they are contributing to my autoimmune issues and declining health. I’m sure that may come as a shock to some, as most people are unaware that I have implants, as they look natural. When I was 22, I decided to have breast augmentation surgery. Why? Honestly, I don’t know. I actually didn’t hate my breasts… I hated sooooooooo many… Read More

If you’ve ever watched my stories on social media, you’ve probably seen pictures of the food I eat in a day. I realize these stories are not the most exciting thing to watch about my day, and by no means do I feel like anyone really cares what I eat lol… BUT, as a nutritionist/trainer, one of the most frequent questions I am asked is “What should I eat?” or “What do… Read More

I debated whether to post this publicly, but I decided to go ahead because I want to be a beacon of hope to anyone who needs it. A few weeks ago I was diagnosed with Lupus. For almost 3 years I have been struggling with chronic pain throughout my entire body, EXTREME fatigue, brain fog, swelling of my face and body, weight gain despite my impeccable diet and consistent exercise, and many… Read More

I had a few ripe bananas that needed to be used, so kiddo and I decided to make banana bread. 😋 🍌 It’s gluten free, with very little added sugar, but it’s super moist and delish! 😁🍌 The topping makes it ooey gooey, as you can see in the next pic. Banana Walnut Bread with Butter Pecan Crust 🍌 For the bread: 3 ripe bananas 3 eggs (I used Happy Egg) 1/4… Read More

I am often told I don’t look my age. Most people guess me to be in my late 20s or early 30s when they first meet me. They’re surprised to find out that I am actually the ripe old age of 40. I’m not complaining about this one bit! 🙂 Nope, I’m trying to hold onto my youth just as much as the next person, but I try not to obsess or… Read More
