Here’s the YouTube video of this recipe!
Thanksgiving is mere weeks away and the recipes keep piling in for my Recipe Makeover Project! Keep ‘em coming! As a reminder, if you have a caloric holiday recipe that you’d like modified, email it to me and we’ll tweak it!
Green bean casserole is a classic holiday calorie bomb. I’ve modified…
No Time? NO Excuses!
Is your schedule JAMMED? Do you literally have just minutes a day to yourself? Is a trip to the gym out of the question for your schedule and wallet?
This seems to be a running theme for women everywhere. In the last month, I’ve received inquiries from clients and fans about quick workouts that make a difference. Moms find time while the babies nap. Executives…
Most New Yorkers have abbreviated kitchens. It seems like architects all but forgot about them and, at the last minute, quickly installed a counter, 2-burner stove, half a fridge and called it thus. Could this could be why New Yorkers LOVE their takeout?
We lucked out: ours is well-equipped and we take full advantage of it on a daily basis. I stock my kitchen…
A Strong Core
How soon can you begin getting your core back post-partum? What exercises are safe and what are off-limits in the first few weeks after giving birth? Is all exercise unsafe until my doctor gives me the ‘ok’?
If you’ve had a normal vaginal delivery, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) gives the OK to exercise as soon …
Recipe Makeover: Apple Pear Oatmeal Crisp
When I think of fall, I think of apples, spice, and family. This recipe definitely includes ALL three. Most people have a traditional apple pie at their Thanksgiving table, laden with calories and unwanted saturated fats that ultimately end up on our midsections (or in my case, directly on my backside) shortly after the holiday. I don’t know about you,…read more
Yesterday’s ING NYC marathon was an emotional delight! I woke up earlier than usual for a Sunday morning, thanks to that extra daylight savings hour, and tuned in to watch the elite athletes work their magic.
With the remote in one hand and my coffee in the other, I couldn’t help but think about my 7 clients corralled on the other side of that windy &…
On it. Today.
After last night’s sugar binge, getting back on track today should be swift and wide-swept, especially if self-discipline and appetite control went out the window. Here’s how to hit that reset button:
Begin the day by squeezing 1/2 lemon into a tall glass of room-temp water and gulp it down.
Have a high-fiber, protein-rich breakfast. Examples…
Growing up, my parents considered Halloween a “devil’s holiday” and off we’d go to church. I never went trick-or-treating and it was always a big let-down for me. Playing dress-up was one of my favorite games and what kid doesn’t love OODLES of candy? But I’m not mad – you can’t accuse my parents of bending…read more
Halloween Survival Guide
One of the most fun but least… waistline-friendly holidays is upon us: Halloween. No matter how good you’ve been with your diet this fall, I know firsthand how difficult it can be saying ‘no’ to bite-sized Butterfingers, candy corn and Pixie Stix. After all, I worked in the corporate world with colleagues who had children for EIGHT YEARS andread more
Paleo Pumpkin Muffins!
Today I decided to roll up my sleeves and get my hands dirty in the kitchen! I made a batch of my favorite pumpkin muffins. You might ask: Well, aren’t you on a low carb diet, Jenny? Yes. Yes, I am! I should preface this post: I despise conventional muffins (ie Starbucks) because traditional muffin recipes call for ungodly amounts of flour and enough sugar… to keepread more
