So I have officially made the decision to begin The Certified Nutritionist Consultant Program at the Natural Healing Institute of Naturopathy. It'll be a distance learning program done at my own pace (which means pretty fast because I want this bad), and I am SO excited. The coolest part is that I will have the ability [...]

It was just like Christmas morning last week when a giant package showed up on our doorstep from US Wellness Meats! Check these beauties out! My personal favorite is the giant tongue. Who knew beef tongues were that huge!? So hopefully at this point I haven't lost you. Stay with me so I can help you understand [...]

I have gotten a lot of questions about egg whites vs egg yolks and "what should I eat?" We get a lot of mixed information on a daily basis about cholesterol, and I think most of the blame gets thrown on the egg yolk. Poor egg yolks. The bias against saturated fat and cholesterol has [...]

Today was a good day... Baby Kali tested my patience, and I passed, I got a lot of work done, trained hard, and then my two pups proceeded to entertain me, love me, and give the best cuddles, until Rusty came home for a perfect finish. On top of that, I made a delicious dinner, [...]

Nothing beats a morning at home with Rusty, our girls, and a cup of my coconutty protein coffee... or so I thought until I tried this new recipe and this particular morning got even better! I have been experimenting with chia seeds since we got a giant bag at Costco, and so far, I freaking [...]

Hey there! This weekend has been one of those rare one where I am home with Rusty and the pups, which means I get to do one of my favorite things... train hard Saturday morning and then eat a big breakfast with Rusty. We love breakfast. a lot. And we decided to try something new [...]

Today's post comes to you from the Bruner kitchen. I am actually shocked that I haven't really mentioned my Vitamix yet considering it's my 4th love (just behind Rusty and our two pups).
