No gym, no equipment, no problem!

Last year during the holidays you loved the body weight workout I shared, so you could keep up with your fitness anywhere you might find yourself. Here's a new one for this year! I have two videos for this one. Part 1 gives some technique tips and shows you each...

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

There's nothing I love more than healthier alternative to a standard desert. These cookies mix up quickly, however they don't make a whole lot. You could look at that as a good thing; less indulgence and some portion control. Or you could just double the recipe! I...

Chocolate Macaroons

This holiday season, why not make some low-guilt goodies to take to all those parties? Believe me, no one will know! I made these for a party I hosted and then took them to another the following night and they were a big hit. (and they are SO easy!) They also keep...
