Fit Friday: Ch Ch Ch Cherry Milk

Woohoo we made it to Friday! Summers are always packed for me so the weeks just seem to fly by. I haven’t forgotten about a Greece recap post, it’s honestly just a matter of compiling the photos from 5 adults and sifting through to make some sort of cohesive summary-taking a little long, but I will get there! In the meantime, I wanted to explore a recent thing that I’ve found myself doing post-dinner that is not only a fit tip but also a wellness tip and I thought it may be useful for you guys too. I’m sure I’m […]

Fit Friday: Light & Fit Guacamole

Happy Fridayyyy! Summer is officially here for me because I am on break and getting ready for some summer travel. Whenever I think of summer meals I go lighter. I’m not sure if it’s the heat that makes me want to eat this way or the idea that I’m going to be in a bathing suit, regardless I’m always looking for inventive ways to go leaner in these months. A staple side at every summer barbecue is hands down, guacamole. There is something about that rich green hue, satisfying creamy texture and how it’s the perfect accompaniment to those crispy […]

Fit Friday: Jump! Jump!

Happy Friday friends! I hope you’ve had a great week so far and have some fun things coming up this weekend. It is my last weekend of in-studio learning for Pilates teacher training, which is kind of unbelievable…it’s gone by so quickly! I’m looking forward to having a little less structure on the weekends and more time to practice teaching and observe classes. I’m thinking of doing a Pilates highlight each week with tips and tricks, what do you think?  I wanted to keep things straight to the point and simple for this fit Friday and I am super excited […]

Fit Friday: MSF Raw Mocha Almond Squares

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you are having a great week and are headed into the weekend feeling accomplished or inspired. I have been plugging away at Pilates training and enjoying walking to classes in this summer-like weather we’ve been having. It’s been pretty warm so I haven’t been wanting to put my oven on to bake anything, but that doesn’t mean my chocolate cravings go away! I experimented with some things I had on hand and ended up with squares that were the perfect amount of chocolatey goodness and super simple to make, so I felt the need to […]

Eating out does not have to be a daunting thing […]

Fit Friday: MSF Peanut Butter Eggs

This weekend we are going to be home on the east coast with my side of the family. Easter was big in our house growing up and I have fond memories of Easter egg hunts, bunny-shaped goodies and the thoughtful Easter baskets Mom put together for us. One thing we could not get enough of in our house (my brothers especially) were the Reese’s peanut butter eggs that are only around this time of year. There is something about them shaped into an egg that just makes them taste different. Am I right? Once I began to get more into […]

Fit Friday: The 411 On Superfood Elixirs

While they are a convenient way to incorporate healthy additions to your foods, superfood powders and supplements can begin to resemble potions and elixirs if you don’t know what they’re for or what to do with them. It can be overwhelming trying to decipher trending superfoods and what their actual purpose or benefits are. To make it simple I included a little cheat sheet below of popular ones and how you can integrate them into your diet. Maca (Root) Benefits: increased fertility (both male & female), hormone balance, immunity booster, increase in energy, stamina, memory & focus Forms: root is […]

Fit Friday: Snack Attack Remedy…MSF Granola Recipe

Happy Friday friends! I have to say I am pretty ready to say hello to the weekend. It’s been a week filled with studying, practicing Pilates and of course the usual 9-5 job. No complaints here because I am BEYOND excited about the material I am covering in my teacher training and feeling more inspired every day, just a little tired 😉 I did leave some time this week to play around in the kitchen a little and created a yummy adaptation of a granola I was gifted by the chef we hired for my birthday dinner in Santa Barbara […]
