iced brown sugar oatmilk shaken espresso

Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso Recipe – Starbucks Copycat

A year ago I had a miscarriage and it forever changed my life. It’s not something I ever knew was so common nor did I think it would ever happen to me. However, 1 in 4 women are likely to experience a miscarriage. That is a SHOCKING statistic and so the more we know the […]

What To Say When Someone Has A Miscarriage

I cannot believe I am finally sitting down over a month later to share with you the birth story of Connor James Ligos. If I’m being completely honest I never thought I’d be one to share something like this. I am usually pretty private as far as my personal life goes but something changed in […]

Connor’s Birth Story


I have been asked a lot lately about the need to supplement with collagen. As always, it depends. However, that’s not sufficient for most people so we will dig in a little deeper.  It has been a fad for a while now but it seems to pick up steam every few months and right now […]

Should You Be Taking Collagen?

I know I already have a PB&J Oat recipe but those are Overnight Oats and sometimes you just want something warm and made time of. That’s what happened this week to me so I came up with this super simple PB&J Oatmeal that you can make on the stovetop or heck even the microwave if […]

PB&J Oatmeal (Stovetop)

It’s always amazing to me what fads become popular and which ones fade away. The greens powder fad seems to be one that started out kind of slow and is now more popular than ever. Usually when a fad is this popular it’s because many are making claims about it in the media. Now that […]

I love a good Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks but I don’t always love having to pay for it and/or having to go out and get it. So, I’ve been making this since last November and figured it was time to spill the beans and share with you my own Homemade Peppermint Mocha, are you ready?! […]

Homemade Peppermint Mocha (Starbucks Copycat Recipe)

protein shakes

This post is sponsored by SFH Protein, but all my thoughts are my own.   Some of the most frequently asked questions I receive as a sports dietitian have to do with nutritional supplements for exercise. Many people wonder if they should be drinking a protein shake before or after a workout or if they […]

Do You Need to Drink Protein Shakes After a Workout?

Often I’m asked what people should eat more of or what the best foods are. I love this question because it truly differs for everyone. However, I also love the question because I prefer to focus on the positives as it comes to your nutrition. Instead of focusing on what you can’t have I’d much […]
