Cook Smarter, Not Harder
The perfect solution for busy people who need to cook Healthy Food, but don't have the time! If you want to make delicious and healthy crockpot meals, then pay very close attention!
Many busy peoples suffer from the idea that eating healthy takes a lot of time on meal prep. But nothing could be further from the truth! If you're someone who is really busy but wants to eat healthy, then THIS is exactly what you're looking for.
I am so excited to introduce you to my brand new crockpot cookbook "Cook Smarter, Not Harder" which helps you figure out how to cook healthy meals in a fraction of the time. This cookbook idea began because I used to look all over Pinterest for crockpot recipes, but I was frustrated because I never could find HEALTHY recipes. All of them seemed to have loads of cream of mushroom soup, or high sugar BBQ sauces, or a ton of butter.
I made it a mission of mine to get creative in the kitchen and make an entire series of healthy, easy recipes that my entire family will ACTUALLY eat.
Natalie Hodson and Dr. Monique Middlekauff have teamed together to create a 30 Day comprehensive program that focuses on Diastasis Recti and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction. This is a great program for anyone who struggles with: ab separation, incontinence (accidentally peeing your pants when jumping or coughing), pelvic floor prolapse, constipation, and more. In this program, you will learn about anatomy, pressure, posture, self affirmations, you will be able to watch videos, see pictures, and have written instructions. The information (almost 100 pages of content) will be an amazing resource! Every mom should go through this program before you start back into higher impact exercise, and regardless of whether you had your baby(ies) ten years ago or ten weeks ago this program will still be incredibly beneficial for you. Pelvic floor strength training decreases symptoms of incontinence is 83% of women!
Delight Your Appetite
Natalie teamed up with Ellen Whitney to create a cookbook sharing their favorite and most popular, healthy dishes. With this book, they show you how “healthy” does not have to be synonymous with bland and boring. You can still savor the foods you love and reach your fitness goals, it just takes a little experimenting in the kitchen. Their book proves you do not have to feel deprived from the foods you love, but instead, enjoy everything in moderation to live a balanced, healthy life that is fun and flavorful! This is a 64 page book filled with beautiful pictures, step-by-step instructions, and nutritional information (macros) for most recipes. After purchasing, the cookbook will be sent to your PayPal email address as a digital download that can be opened in iBooks on electronic devices, or saved to your computer. The best part about a digital cookbook is that you can easily bring it with you everywhere and quickly access the recipes with a click of a button.

4 Week Shred
I want to invite you on my journey through my 4-week shred program as I prepare myself for an upcoming photo shoot that I have scheduled.
I created this after I had my two children and have personally used it many times in the past to prepare for previous shoots.
Keep in mind, this program is intense, however extremely rewarding!
Typically, I do not endorse programs that are not maintainable long-term. However, there is a time and place for this program. This is the program that I use when I want to really lean down in a short period of time.
4-Week Shred is a gym-based program where we spend 5-6 days a week performing high-intensity workouts and we follow a carb-cycling meal plan with high carb days and low carb days.
