If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know I try really hard to eat a healthy and balanced diet. I personally feel better when I eat better, and like to fuel my body with nutrient rich food. I also believe in intuitive eating– I try not to spend a lot of time focused on food or food guilt. I’ve found that being consistent with incorporating healthy food into your diet is more sustainable long term than “diets” or restrictions.
I’m also admittedly not the greatest cook, so I like to keep my meals pretty simple and quick to make. My grocery list is really consistent from week to week– I even joke that I should set up a reoccurring order. I thought I would share what my normal grocery list looks like, and share some of my common, simple meal ideas. Keep reading to check them out below!

I’ve always had an on and off relationship with sleep. Most of the time, my sleep is near perfect. But I go through phases where it’s impossible to sleep for weeks at a time. I recently went through one of these phases and tried everything– including just about every over the counter supplement and prescription, and none of it helped.
In retrospect, I think the medications were having the opposite effect on me, and I worked really hard to develop better sleep habits for the future. Keep reading for my top tips to get the best sleep each night:

If you think you’re the kind of person who could never be a runner, I’m here to tell you that isn’t true! With a little bit of commitment and the right plan, you can train to run a 5k in a little over a month. I’ve created a week-by-week plan to help you from the start.
This plan only has 4 workouts per week, and most of your workouts will be 30 to 45 minutes long. It starts slow and builds over the course of a month, with the end being a 5k run, that you could also do during a race that you signed up for!

Not every life change has to be a sweeping new year’s resolution. In fact, the biggest changes you can make to your life are the little things that you do each and every day that add up.
