    Your kiddos aren’t the only ones heading back to school next week. I am too! 

    Since I started That Clean Life, I’ve been having so much fun learning about REAL food. The kind that nourishes our mind, body and soul. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again a million times - re-shifting my focus to a clean diet has made extraordinary changes in my life and nothing makes me happier than to be able to share my learnings with you. 

    When I finished nursing school I was pretty turned off of the world of academia. Don’t get me wrong. I love, love, LOVE learning but university just wasn’t for me. So when I heard about the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program, I knew it was calling my name. This is a new and innovative program from best selling author Meghan Telpner that will allow me to deep dive into the world of real food. 

    The incredible people at Genuine Health have been so kind to select me as their winner of the Live Life in Bold Scholarship to the Academy of Culinary Nutrition. I’m so pumped to be aligned with two organizations that not only respect but share my values when it comes to living a healthy life. 

    I truly believe that big things are on the horizon for That Clean Life and I know the Culinary Nutrition Expert program is going to help us make these dreams a reality. 

    Thank you so, so, soooooo much for being a part of the That Clean Life journey so far! Together I know we will make the world a healthier place for not only ourselves but for the ones we love. September is going to be an amazing month. Hold onto your hats!  

  2. I love me a good real time workout! While heading to a workout class is super motivating, it’s not always feasible. The timing is often off. Not to mention, the cost of workouts seem to be getting higher and higher. Throwing on a (free) real-time workout from YouTube saves time and money. That’s why Sarah Dussault’s new Jessica Simpson Wedding Day Arm Workout is so awesome. It burns in the best way. 


    If you are a sucker for tabloids like me, you know Jessica Simpson has received a ton of media attention over the years regarding both her weight gain and weight loss. The media has no mercy. What I love about this story is that Jessica had an amazing comeback. She worked hard with her trainer (Harley Pasternak), ate right and totally took back her health.  Did she have to live in the gym to achieve her goals? Nope. She simply worked out efficiently and effectively. Pasternak preaches 25 minute workouts, 5 times per week with a focus on strength training. Doable? Yes. 

    This is a perfect place to start. Grab a jump rope or hop on the treadmill for 15 minutes and follow it up with this 10 minute upper body workout. Just put in 25 minutes and you are done for the day.

    But remember! Whether you spend 25 minutes in the gym or 5 hours in the gym, you won’t see results unless you are eating right. In fact, diet trumps exercise (but more on this another day). Just another reason to sign up for our upcoming clean eating challenge kicking off September 15. Sign up here.

    Now grab those dumbbells and get at it!
