The Skinny on Healthy Fats and Why Not All Fat is Bad

Posted on March 25, 2014 at 10:18 am by

I have something to tell y’all. Not all fat is created equal. The whole “fat free craze” from the 90s needs to be put to rest already. We actually NEED fat. Certain types of fat, anyway. Have you heard the term “healthy fat” before? That’s another one of those terms that people throw around/hear but they don’t really know what it is. If you’ve never heard of it, you might be under the impression that all fat is bad and... View Article

Posted on February 18, 2014 at 10:31 pm by

Have you ever seen #eatcleantraindirty and wondered what the heck that person was talking about? Today I’m gonna explain the “Eat Clean” part, because I’ve had a lot of questions about what I eat/what kind of diet I follow. Truth is…I don’t do any special diet. I’m not a vegetarian. Or vegan.
