6 Tips for Alcohol + Healthy Weight Loss
This berry coconut chia seed pudding tastes like a heavenly dessert in a bowl! I have it for breakfast in the morning and even for a healthy dessert in the evening!
It’s packed FULL of protein, healthy fats, and fiber. What that means is your blood sugar is kept stable, keeping you in the fat burning zone, and you’ll feel nice and full until the next meal time without having to reach for a snack.
Strawberry Jalapeno Margarita
Can you actually find balance? What’s the healthiest? Can you lose weight and drink alcohol? Can you have fat loss and still drink alcohol?
All of the above were questions I had when I first began my journey to my “dream body” back in college

Healthified Fried Rice
I walk into the store and see an adorable dress, say it’s $50, my mind is like “nah, you don’t need it.” I head to the workout section and my mind is like “$80 for workout leggings? You only have 50 pairs you definitely need these.” Anyone else?!
When it comes to workout clothes, I do invest in higher quality. With how much I wear them, and how much I sweat (I do not sparkle, I do in fact, sweat), it is SO worth it to invest in the good stuff.
"Get the workout in" habit hacks!
Holy MOLY guacamole I do love me a good fried rice. And sister, I love to head to a good thai food restaurant and order a stir fry with a side of fried rice (the loaded with butter and sodium kind). Balance at its finest ladies and gents!
T and I love cooking Asian style dinners. When I cook at home I love to take advantage of being in charge of the ingredients and make them "healthified."
