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 […]

5 Foods for Daily Detox | Daily Bites

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 […]

Almond Butter & Jelly Bars from Daily Bites

Relaxation looks a little different for all of us. Some of us need a yoga mat and a quiet room, others a sunny spot and an open notebook. Then there are those of us who need a kitchen, some baking ingredients, and maybe a bit of lively music. I’m a blend of the three. I […]

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 […]

Real Food Protein Smoothie from Daily Bites

I made you a new smoothie! It’s packed with protein, healthy fats, and loads of blood sugar-balancing fiber. It’s also low-glycemic and can be made nut-free and vegan. Oh, and there’s no crazy protein powder in sight. Believe it or not, it’s made with REAL food! Hopefully that’s enough to convince you to make it, […]

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 […]

Turns out that last week’s post on protein powder generated more buzz than I expected! That’s a wonderful thing. I love seeing you all take this topic seriously and really think through some tough questions when it comes to eating clean and sourcing your ingredients. I wanted to share with you two of the common […]

Hit-the-Slopes Snowballs (Daily Bites)

Now that the Super Bowl is over with, who’s excited for the kick off of the Olympics this week? I’m a pretty non-sportsy person, but when it comes to the Olympics you can get me to pay a little more attention to scores and athletes. Even though I’ve never set foot in a pair of […]
