Mug Breakfast | Nutrition Nuptials

2-Minute Microwave Breakfast Mug

You know you heard it a million times as a kid. And if you’re Mr E, my nutrition clients, or have been to one of my presentations, then you’ve heard me repeatedly tell you: DO NOT SKIP BREAKFAST! Skipping breakfast has been linked to higher rates of obesity due to slower metabolism and tendency to overeat at other meals. When we don’t eat breakfast, we’re denying our body energy to get moving in the morning, which can lead to foggy brains, droopy eyes, and hangry significant others. Not the stuff dream days are made of. That’s why I’m sharing a great breakfast solution to try with your sweetie.

Back 2 Work Lunch Ideas

Here in NJ, the Day After Labor Day means one thing: my social media feeds will be flooded with pics of my friends’ kids sporting their new backpacks and First Day of School outfits while waiting for the bus.  And hopefully healthy packed lunch boxes.  But kids aren’t the only ones who should be taking a lunch from home. Let this new month prompt a new habit for you and your Significant Other: start taking lunch to work. Continue reading “Back 2 Work Lunch Ideas”

Staycation | Nutrition Nuptials

How To: Staycation

One of the cool things about becoming a couple is forming your own traditions. When Mr. E and I started dating, we had Sunday date night of dinner and ice cream at our favorite local shops. There were Tuesday night Beat the Clocks (which is another story for another time). And a few years ago we started Staycation.  Continue reading “How To: Staycation”

The following program is being conducted in conjunction with Wildtree, of which I serve as a rep and product distributor. I only recommend products I absolutely love to my readers. See Disclaimer at the end of this post for more info.

Did you know September is second to January when it comes to focusing on goals? With the end of year approaching (eek!), many folks want to circle back and assess the goals we set back in January. Or maybe they were forgot about all together and now it’s time to get back on track. And some of us may be thinking about all the ice cream, boardwalk fries, and BBQ beers we enjoyed this summer with our significant others. With September approaching, many of you may have newfound motivation to step up your game when it comes to healthy lifestyle habits. And that’s why I’m stoked to share a new accountability challenge I’ll be kicking off this September! Continue reading “Fall Back into Health Habits: Accountability Challenge Announcement!”

Positive Affirmations – Hers & His

Facebooktwitterpinterestyoutubeinstagram

This past weekend I gave up sun at the Jersey Shore teaching SUP Yoga to travel out to Kansas City and take a deep dive into personal and professional development. If you follow me on social media, you may have seen me mention a mealtime solutions company called Wildtree. Over a year and a half ago, I was looking to add meal planning and prepping into my service offerings. Wildtree literally fell into my lap. I’ll chat more about Wildtree in a future post, but taking a chance on Wildtree is one of the best decisions I could have made for myself, my home life, and my business.  The past weekend was literally a non-stop fire under my butt.

Today is the official debut of Mr E’s Cocktail Corner, a new series on Nutrition Nuptials written by none other than Mr E himself! All photography is proudly his own. As a dietitian, I believe all foods can fit into a health lifestyle. And yes, that includes cocktails. Without further ado, I present to you Mr E!

Meet Mr E!

For those of you who have been reading Mandy’s blog for a while, you may know me as Mr. E.  You may even remember me from such hilarious blog posts as The Mashed Cauliflower Incident, my dislike of Old El Paso products, or one of the Date Night-inspired versions.  Aside from being our protagonist’s adventurous partner in crime, I’m a corporate athlete with a passion for delicious food, sunsets, great live music, sunrises, fun friends, fitness, tasty drinks, and taking pictures of all the aforementioned!  I have been known to combine any and all of those things. Sometimes that means experimenting making cocktails with a twist and posting pictures to Instagram. Continue reading “Jalapeño Margarita”

Beach Etiquette 101

As part of my Jersey Shore Date Nights series, today I’m talking about the #1 tourist attraction we have here at the shore – our beaches! If you and your significant other are planning on spending the day or taking a longer vacation at the beach, check out these tips for being a good beach guest.

Happy July 4th Weekend! Going to the beach this weekend to celebrate? As a Jersey Shore Girl, you know I love my beach. However, over the summer months we get a million invaders – I mean visitors.  And while I love the energy that comes to the shore over these months and meeting new people through SUP classes, the ability to relax on the beach can be challenging.  Therefore, Mr E and I have decided to share our Beach Etiquette 101 rules for those of you planning to visit our beloved Jersey Shore this summer. (PS- We are not lake or river people, nor have we ever been. I’m not sure if these same rules apply, but common courtesy never goes out of style.) Continue reading “Beach Etiquette 101”
