Inspiration for a healthy lifestyle change

“If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” I use this quote often when coaching my clients. If we are to see a big change in our nation’s health (which is absolutely necessary, just look around), we have to start thinking this way.

At some point, they need to feel confident and empowered that they can take control of their own health and not...

Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins || Erin Finch

As a nursing mama, I love to have something quick and healthy to grab first thing when I wake up in the morning. Having something to grab first thing in the morning after that early morning feeding holds me over until I have time to make a bigger breakfast for both my toddler and me when she wakes up a couple hours later.
