Gosh I’m so excited to finally get these sweet potato fries up on the website! I have no idea why I’ve waited so long, but here they finally are! No more explaining how to make them via private message on Instagram, I can simply send you all right here to the recipe! This is one of the first recipes I mastered after getting my hubby the air fryer last Christmas, and still my favorite thing to make in it. Get ready for some perfectly crispy, easy to make sweet potato fries!
Comparison is the root of all evil and the thief of joy. I’ve worked so hard these past 2.5 years to not compare my weight loss journey to others. To say I never do would be a complete lie. For a while I couldn’t understand why hitting my macros meticulously wasn’t working as well for me as it was for Tracy.
When I dropped my son off for kindergarten on the first day of school I was a nervous wreck. I watched as he stood on the sidelines of the playground. Some kids were flying down the slides, others were playing tag in the grass, but Milo was just watching it all cautiously. Just one friend, I prayed silently as the bell rang and he marched into his classroom. Just make one friend.
Ever feel like everyday is Groundhog’s day? Last week, as I scrolled through my social media feed I noticed myself gradually getting more unhappy by the minute. There was that family at Disneyland… AGAIN. Next up, a couple vacationing in Rome. And then, just as I put my kid in time out for the third time, I saw that somebody else was buying a brand new house that’s double the size of mine.

Am I right? Can you collectively join me in an Amen here? As many of you know, I have 3 well behaved boys. They sit and color most days. I rarely have to raise my voice and I beam with pride as they eat their 4 servings of vegetables everyday.
Can I do macros if…
- I have high blood pressure?
- Type 2 Diabetes?
- I don’t work out?
- I’m menopausal?
- I’ve struggled with eating disorders in the past?
- I’m gluten free?
- I’m a cancer survivor?
- I have PCOS?
- I’m nursing?
- I travel a lot?
- I’m an overwhelmed single mom?
- My doctor says I’m obese?
I may be about 10 years late to this 2 ingredient dough recipe but heck, you might be too! I love making this because it’s so easy, I always have the ingredients around, it’s surprisingly really good, and it’s easy on the macro budget(fat free!). Sure you could just go buy some pizza dough for pizza night, but that takes all the fun out of it! Give this simple 2 ingredient pizza dough a try and I guarantee you’ll love it just like we do!
One of the hardest things for us to overcome when it comes to weight loss, is time. No matter your circumstance, it’s HARD to be patient. One of the first things we tell our new macro nutrition clients is that their progress is not just measured by the scale and it will most likely not move as quickly as they want it to. Not only can the process sometimes feel long, but it also comes with it’s trial and setbacks. One of our macro ninjas, Anna, is the perfect example of enduring to the end and trusting the process, despite what the scale says, or what happens in her life each and every week. Anna recently hit her 1 year macro anniversary with us and we couldn’t be more proud of her!
July is my month people!! Did you know that July is Ice Cream Month!? As if anyone needs an excuse to enjoy more ice cream, am I right? I’m no stranger to fitting ice cream in my macros on a regular basis, and Swell, The Next Wave of Ice Cream, makes it so easy! Did you know that Swell Ice Cream has more protein per serving than any other better-for-you ice cream out there?! Every single flavor they offer has 10g per 1/2 cup serving, and less than 2.5g of fat! I just CAN’T STOP SHOUTING ABOUT THIS!! My favorite way to eat Swell Ice Cream is on top of this warm, fresh, berry mug cake cobbler!
“Are there slot machines in your cafeteria at school?”
“Do you live in a casino?!”
I was born and raised in Las Vegas and whenever I’d travel these were the type of questions I’d get on the regular. I’d giggle and always respond with:
“Nope. My school serves gross french bread pizza and I live in a house just like you.”
Then I’d follow it up with a big smile and say,
“My parents are both poker dealers though.”
“No way. Awesome!!!!” they’d say.
