What to Do When You've Been Glutened | Tips from Hallie at

Getting glutened is the pits. Let’s just get that out of the way right off the bat. If you’re sensitive to gluten or have celiac disease, consuming even the smallest bit can send you straight to couch (or the bathroom…) within less than an hour. Symptoms range in severity and variety, but you’ll most commonly […]

Must-Have Resources for Gluten-Free Living

In the past week, I’ve lost count of how many people I’ve met or heard of who’ve just started going gluten-free. And they’re seeing amazing results. Because I’ve been living this lifestyle for so long, it’s easy for me to forget about that initial transformation phase when you start to see symptoms disappear and health […]

If you think that doing a detox requires drinking nothing but green juice for a week or chomping on seaweed at every meal, think again! The best, most sustainable way to detox is to begin incorporating detoxifying foods into your diet EVERY day. Loading up your plate (or glass) with potent plant-based detoxifiers is a […]

Can't Beet This Juice!

Earlier this week I did a day of juicing (ending with a light meal that night) to just reset my system and give my cells a cleansing boost for the day. It was invigorating and very hydrating! I’m thinking of instituting monthly juice days because I love the way they make me feel. I know […]

Chocolate Cherry Chia Power Treats (Daily Bites)

Right after New Year’s, I walked into Walgreens and saw them already working on the Valentine’s Day candy display. It was an explosion of pink and red packages. You know the kind. Bright heart-shaped boxes wrapped in cellophane and piled high next to the “Squeeze Me! Teddy Bears.” I was there again last week and […]

Protein Powder Alternatives

A few weeks ago I shared my thoughts on protein powder and why I think it does more harm than good. Last week, I touched on some protein-rich breakfast ideas without protein powder. But this week is where things really get exciting: let’s talk smoothies! In our protein powder-obsessed nation, a smoothie only crosses the […]

Protein Powder: Helpful or Harmful?

Navigating the seas of protein powder options should be an Olympic sport. Rarely a week goes by where I don’t encounter recipes, advertisements, and samples relating to powdered proteins. They are without a doubt one of the most widely available “health food products,” and consequently the most confusing. So I thought I’d clear the air, […]
