Why is “Healthy Living” important to you?

Because when you take care of yourself all of life is better. You have more energy. You sleep better. You try new things. You feel better about yourself. You basically live MORE!

Who are your “Healthy Living” role models and why?

Bob Harper, Jillian Michaels and Dolvett Quince from The Biggest Loser TV show are all amazing trainers who I look up to and adore. They know their stuff. But I also really, really look up to Gwen Stefani. In fact, I wrote a whole post on why recently on our site Fit Bottomed Girls: http://bit.ly/WY0Bz7

What is your go-to healthy meal when you are short on time?

An egg-veggie scramble or a big salad withe protein. Both are quick, easy and make me feel good as they contain plenty of protein, healthy fat and fiber to fill me up!

Do you have any tips for families who want to make some healthy lifestyle changes?

Do it together! On our site Fit Bottomed Mamas we really emphasize that health is a family affair. So go for family walks, cook healthy meals together — turn off the TV and get moving together!

Are there any foods that you consider to be off-limits completely?

I live by an all-good-things-in-moderation mantra, so nope! Although anything with trans-fat is certainly close to being totally off limits. I’ve just found that you can make your own healthier versions of all that unhealthy processed stuff.

In addition to eating right, do you have any other tips to share on overall wellness?

Get out of the all-or-nothing mindset. Deprivation and diets do not work. Instead find the healthy foods and activities you love to do and do them often. Adding just a little bit of exercise or swapping an unhealthy snack for a healthier one can add up to huge results. So start small, don’t deprive and know that you’re worth taking care of!
