Healthy Chicken Quesadillas [Recipe]

Quesadillas used to be my go-to order at this Italian restaurant called Ragazzi in Cayman – at least for lunch anyways because for dinner you sure as hell don’t wanna miss out on their stone-baked pizzas! Anyway, they had a lobster quesadilla that really was to die for! Since I left Cayman I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve had one quesadilla. That was over 4 years ago! Isn’t that crazy!? Until the other day after I’d made some shredded chicken and happened to have some low-carb tortillas on hand, the inspiration to whip up some Mexican goodness came to mind.

Breaking Through a Plateau (And Are You Really Plateaued?)

A lot of clients and people in general often reach out to me asking what to do when they reach a weight loss plateau. Typically what they’re referring to is a lack of positive movement on the scale.

Low Calorie Buffalo Chicken Pizza [Recipe]

Say goodbye to “cheat meal” guilt with this low calorie buffalo chicken pizza recipe! 😋

Since lockdown measures were instated in Boulder, Colorado around 16th March, Jason and I have been eating exclusively at home. Aside from grabbing groceries at the store or walking our dogs we really haven’t left the house – which has been surprisingly great in terms of our nutrition and general well-being! We’ve been walking more, we’re getting more sleep, we’re moderating the intensity of our workouts much better because we have minimal equipment at home and, despite financial stresses like the rest of the world is facing with all this uncertainty, this is probably the most relaxed we’ve felt in a long time! Slowing down our pace of life and living more simply has been extremely eye opening for us.

Baked Oatmeal with Peaches & Plums [Recipe]

This easy oatmeal bake is the perfect late summer dish.  The true summer version of this would be cold overnight oats because I use my oven a lot less mid summer.  And the true fall version of this would use apples instead of peaches and plums.  For those few weeks when summer is starting to fade but fall hasn’t quite arrived… this combination is perfect.
