Fatloss Friendly Slaw

My Health Coaching clients are the BEST!  They are dedicated, focused and do the work outside of our coaching sessions that is required to meet their goals.  One of the topics that I often address with my clients is how to fit in more vegetables.  And not just any veggies…but nutrient dense, high fiber vegetables:  spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, etc.

It’s one thing to set a goal to increase daily servings of vegetables, it’s a WHOLE other process to make it happen.  So what do my rock star clients do?  They find a way to fit them in, get creative and make them enjoyable.

Today’s recipe is a great alternative to a traditional salad or slaw.  The recipe (tested and approved) is from a Health Coaching Client who has made loads of positive changes since starting her coaching program, in addition to shedding just under 10 pounds of body fat!  Whoo-hoo!

Grocery Shopping for Fatloss

I like to keep my meal planning (and prep) relatively simple.  Every few weeks, or if I get another cookbook, I’ll try a brand new recipe.  But for the most part, it’s simple, it’s predictable, and it works for me…breakfast is an egg dish + fruit or oatmeal.  Lunch is leftover from the previous day’sRead More >

Steamed Vegetables are Gross!

An email from my Coaching Client: I loved the Brussels sprouts!  Do you have any other vegetable recipes? I get tired of the same steamed veggies all of the time!   I was thinking about spaghetti squash – then I just remembered about cooking cauliflower and mashing that, I haven’t made that before either - trying to think of varietiesRead More >

Other than the tons of ads on TV/social media for diets, diet pills, exercise equipment, detoxes, and other “gimmicky” messages, for the most part I feel like this is the year of the anti-resolution.   Have we finally learned that resolutions (i.e. lose 50 pounds) don’t really work?  Maybe.     There is, however, an undeniableRead More >
