Kickin’ It with Lifestyle & Mommy Blogger Cassidy Phan

Living healthy doesn’t happen overnight, it takes commitment and perseverance to achieve your goals.  Today we’re Kickin’ It with lifestyle & mommy blogger Cassidy Phan. She’s sharing some great tips on how to achieve a healthy lifestyle.


Why is “Healthy Living” important to you?

My father passed away when I was young due to poor health choices.  Not only do I want to be around for my family making the best choices possible, it just makes me feel better.

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

Not one individual in particular, but parents who are able to balance working out, cooking (delicious) healthy meals and keeping their kids involved the entire time.

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

My current obsession is a microwaved sweet potato with different toppings like feta and green onions or broccoli.  It always surprises me how one little potato can be so filling!

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

Start small!  In the past if I attempt an extremely lofty goal, I end up getting discouraged and just fizz out on momentum.  Making smaller, more attainable steps towards the bigger changes helps me keep going.

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

Only because I am a baby, but spicy food. I don’t think it is wise to completely ban something you might desire.  If you have personal objections to a particular food sure, but if you want it in moderation why not?  Food is one of my favorite parts of life!

In addition to eating right, do you have any other tips to share on overall wellness (i.e. sleep, relaxation techniques, fitness routines)?

I notice I am feeling my best when I getting a lot of time doing three things:

  • Sleeping well
  • Drinking water
  • Practicing yoga

For me, a great yoga class and a good night’s sleep go hand in hand.
