Nutrition Stripped is Taking on an Intern!

Nutrition Stripped is taking on an intern! The time has come, well for quite some time honestly, for the need of a bigger team to support my efforts here on Nutrition Stripped coupled with a calling to help the younger generations in the field of nutrition and small business. I’ve read through countless emails from aspiring nutritionists, dietitians, and entrepreneurs about job opportunities and requests for my mentorship about the day-to-day running of a business like Nutrition Stripped. Those emails are not only humbling and flattering, but it’s incredibly exciting to know that the new wave of entrepreneurs are aspiring to think “outside of the box” with the many possibilities for a career in nutrition and more.

2-minute Mindfulness Challenge

Many of us, myself included, get so busy with the “to-do’s” on our list for the day that we simply forget to take a break. I’m challenging you to take at least 2 minutes everyday from working on the computer, running around getting ready, etc.,  to disconnect with all technology (yes, even the Nutrition Stripped blog!) to sit back, relax, meditate if you like, and look up and relish in nature. I’m starting this challenge for myself starting at 2 minutes gradually working up to 15-20 minutes a day, who’s with me?
Nourishing Foods 4-week Reset
I used to be a pro at meditation, every single morning without fail I’d sit and meditate for at least 30 minutes. Looking back on that time in my life I had much more mental space tackle the day and admittedly, I’m slightly embarrassed to say I’ve slipped up and engage in meditation less than 10 minutes some days. I’ve been “too busy” or making the choice not to meditate and rather finding myself starting with work or other to-do’s. Today I’m posing a challenge to you all, as a way to share my experience, but also as a way to keep me accountable to you!

Grilled Peaches & Sweet Cream with Crunchy Bits

Grilled Peaches & Sweet Cream… with crunchy bits. Oh yes, the sweet cream is amazing, but these Crunchy Bits completely steal the show. I always am flooded with ideas and inspiration from peaches during the summer months, we have our favorite peach providers (a.k.a. the Peach Truck) here in Nashville during the summer and I utilize every day I can get my hands on those peaches! Today I’m sharing a recipe that can be enjoyed for both a breakfast, brunch, or dessert.

Grilled Peaches with Sweet Cream & Crunchy Bits

As much as I’m a fan of the Crunchy Bits in this recipe, the Sweet Cream is incredibly delicious as well and dense with healthy fats, protein, fiber, and is completely dairy-free and refined sugar free. I use both macadamia nuts and cashews with coconut milk, dates, vanilla, and a touch of sea salt to create a delicious cream. Both the Sweet Cream and Crunchy Bits are rich, therefore pairing it with an untouched fresh peach, warmed through on the grill, is the perfect balance between sweet, creamy, light, and rich.

Nutrition Stripped Photoshoot

First of all, for anyone who knows me they know I’m not the “selfie” nor the photogenic type- I’m more of the behind the scenes type of gal- but in my element, being photographed for this shoot was effortless and so fun! I had my two dearest of friends, whom are also incredibly talented, style and photograph me doing what I do best. I’m constantly asked questions about my workspace, lifestyle, Zoey, and other things that go along with personal life; this was my way to give you a little glimpse into where all my creative juices get put into action. We took shots all around my home and outside by the garden, the studio, my office, living room, and of course the kitchen!

We had a blast shooting new pictures for the blog, which you can see they’re on every page, i.e. pantry, services, about, pressresources, contact, recipes, and more.
