Dearly Beloved,

We are gathered here today to once again mourn the loss of the men in our lives to those 3 letters that claim the attention span of millions of American men each year: NFL.

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”

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.

Nutrition Nuptials: Back to Basics

Facebooktwitterpinterestyoutubeinstagram

Mid year always is a time for me to reflect on where my year is going, checking if I’m on track with my goals, and resetting those goals and expectations accordingly. One of the biggest areas for me is this blog, which started as a passion project for me over two years. My intention for starting Nutrition Nuptials was always with the focus of helping couples learn to live healthy lifestyles together. And that remains my intention. However, over the year I’ve noticed that I’ve unintentionally strayed from that concept. Here’s what’s gone down and how I intend to get back on track.  Continue reading “Nutrition Nuptials: Back to Basics”

2017 registry recommendations

Scan It! 2017 Registry Recommendations

Wedding season is officially upon us. And anyone who is part of it knows that it’s never just about the wedding. There’s the events leading up to the wedding, including bridal showers If you’re one of the thousands of couples getting married this summer, then I’m sure at least one of you have spent hours stressing over items to put on your registry. Researching which pepper grinder is right for you. Making sure you both agree on that china pattern – or maybe china isn’t even on your radar.  When you’re a shower guest, you want to make sure the gift you’re giving will not only make a splash with “oohs and ahhhs” as the bride holds up each item, but want to make sure it’s something that actually gets used. Or at least put prominently on display. That’s where my annual Nutrition Nuptials Registry Recommendation comes into play!

100 Ways to Paint Your Plate Pink

100 Ways to Paint Your Plate Pink (Recipe Roundup)

May in Monmouth County, NJ has created a special breast cancer awareness initiative called Paint the Town Pink.  Storefronts feature pink displays.  Street medians are painted pink instead of yellow.  Pink bows hang from trees.  And each town adapts a cute little pink name.  For the next month, I will be a resident of Pinktune City, NJ (see you in June, Neptune!).  Which got me thinking how more pink foods can be incorporated into your home this month to help raise awareness towards the role of nutrition in cancer prevention.  So it’s time to Paint Your Plate Pink!

Food Waste: Accidental or Intentional?

Facebooktwitterpinterestyoutubeinstagram

April means Earth Day is upon us. While a lot of attention this week is put on ways to save the planet through recycling and clean water, there is a larger issue coming into play right in your own home: food waste.  According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Resources Institute (WRI), over one-third of food gets lost either during the production process or after purchase. In the US alone, 30-40% of the food supply is wasted, equaling more than 20 pounds of food per person per MONTH. Organic waste is the second highest component of landfills here in America, which are the largest source of methane emissions (and NOT, contrary to belief, cow farts).  Stop being part of the cause. Time to BE the solution against food waste. Continue reading “Food Waste: Accidental or Intentional?”
