By now, it should be no secret to you that I travel often. Very, very often. While it used to give me shivers down my spine and a pit in my stomach, I’ve since learned to love it so much that I’d much rather be 30,000 feet above ground than riding in a car. Now that I’m a nutritionist (and so close to becoming a Registered Dietitian), I get questions left and right about how I manage stay healthy while traveling so much….

When I was younger and pasta was just pasta, I used to love fettuccine alfredo. So long it was creamy, buttery, and delicious, it had my name all over it. Fast forward to current times where eating a good old fashioned noodle is treachery and having a pasta sauce made out of actual cream and butter is a prohibition, I created a recipe for Vegan & Flour Free Zucchini Pasta Alfredo. That’s right. No flour, no gluten, no noodles, no sugar, no milk, no cream, no butter, and definitely no carbs. I’m half making fun of the way the nutrition world works these days, and half buying into it.
I can’t decide which is the better half. Moving on….
It’s 2018 and just like kale, matcha, and avocado had their time, cauliflower is ready to take center stage. I was skeptical at first, health-wise aside, I ‘d rarely choose pizza first, or even last, on a menu. However, in the past few months as I’ve observed up and coming recipe posts and the health world’s renewed interest in (cauliflower) pizza, I too chose to join in. After my own secret affair with pizza to try and discover the perfect balance between crunch and doughy, cheesy and saucy, it’s safe to say we have a winner….

The holidays are, without a doubt, the most special and festive time of the year (aside from my birthday!). Some people celebrate with gifts (here’s a holiday gift guide in case you’re late) and others celebrate with Italian coffee and gluten-free cookies. I am very much a part of the latter group. It was a special day in my home last week when I received the De’Longhi Dedica DeLuxe and Dedica Grinder. I had heard of De’Longhi before, but I wasn’t particularly familiar with their functionality or product line. Lets just put it this way, if I’ve made a conscious choice of coffee over presents, then you know they’re doing something right….
Gifts are the ultimate expression of feelings, especially around holiday time. I created the first-ever Healthy Holiday Guide from TheWholeTara to help you find that perfect gift. This is the ideal list for someone who is into health, self-care, and, maybe, travel. I know firsthand how difficult gift-giving can be, so I hope this year’s gift guide gives you plenty ideas and all of the clarity you need to buy your loved one a special something for the holidays. …
Admit it. Holiday season has you running around like a crazy. You’re trying to close out the year, make everyone on your gift list happy, and, of course, stay sane while you’re at it. Whoever says there’s no such thing as holiday madness is sadly mistaken, and unfortunately healthy eating gets put on the back burner in times like this. Luckily, I’m here with a solution and you’re here reading this post….

Between the start of the holidays, dietetic internship jitters, and the day-t0-day of life as a blogger, I’m surprised I even had time to share this Brain-Boosting Spinach Chickpea Salad with you. Believe it or not, this blog work requires a lot of focus. I mean, it is a real job after all! Just within the last week I’ve been on four planes and three film sets, not to mention working on recipe after recipe. Luckily, I made it through and came out on the other side with this brain-healthy salad recipe! Definitely worth it.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, comes the sneaky temptations that make their way into every holiday affair. Between the hors d’oeuvres, saucy side dishes, and larger than usual portions, it can feel almost impossible to stick to any sort of eating regimen. My personal trick is to save where you can because chances are if you set too many restrictions on yourself before going into the meal, you’ll throw all of your rules away before the turkey is even sliced.
