I’m excited to be here! Mornings can be so busy with rushing to get out the door with work, kids, gym workouts, etc. It’s difficult to stay on the healthy track with so many diversions and when hunger pains set in you just want to eat!

When making changes in our lives for more healthy options, it’s important to think ahead. I’m going to be sharing delicious, healthy and quick recipes in the Fabulous Food Friday series.

Be sure to get good, healthy fats everyday. Some of my favorites are:
Nuts (almonds and cashews)
Believe it or not healthy fats as mentioned above actual help you to lose weight and maintain a healthy weight. We all need these healthy fats for our organs and our skin to stay young.
Coconut oil is so versatile. Did you know you can use it as a makeup remover and skin moisturizer as well as using it in the kitchen? I love to add a tablespoon of coconut oil to my morning smoothies.
