How to Grow Healthy Long Strong Hair | Nutrition Stripped

One of the most frequent compliments I get, is about my hair, which I’m so flattered! Questions about, how to grow it this long, if you have long hair how to take care of it without damaging it, what products I use, how I style it, etc. Trust me, it hasn’t always been healthy, I used to have dry, brittle, “lifeless” hair that would never grow past my shoulders. Today, I’m sharing my ultimate guide to strong and healthy hair and a couple tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years. Having a an amazing hairstylist as your mother is a perk, she’s taught me so much about how to maintain healthy locks for life and intertwining some of her wackiest remedies and tricks that I still do daily. Let’s give those locks a little extra love.

Top 5 Reasons You Should Eat Avocados


Top 5 Reasons to Eat Avocados | Nutrition Stripped

I recently wrote all about Fats, Part I and you had great follow up questions and more ideas for me to cover in Part II which is coming up soon! It got me thinking though about one of my favorite types of healthy fats, coconut oil beine my #1, in close second are avocados! So much so that I wear avocados…all the time. Avocados are one of the best ways to sneak in creaminess living a dairy-free lifestyle, they’re rich in fiber, potassium, and are just plain delicious to eat. Most of all, eating healthy fats like avocados is so important for our overall health, whether we’re trying to balance hormones, nourish our skin and hair, or balance our blood sugars for disease prevention and weight management- healthy fats are where it’s at.

Spaghetti Squash and Chickpea Meatballs


Spaghetti Squash and Chickpea Meatballs | Nutrition Stripped

It’s fall and I feel like we’re all about comfort food right now. I know you can relate getting back into routines of fall, but life has been going a million miles a minute lately, feeling like so much is going on, is growing, and my time is being stretched to the max leaving me wanting nutrient dense food, fast, simple, and satisfying. I often talk about how food is far more than fuel in my book, it’s social, it’s comfort, it’s love, it’s fun, it’s all of those things if we manage from a place of balance. So naturally when things get a little crazy and all I want is a hearty, warming bowl of pasta with meatballs…I turn to this one. I thank my mom for inspiring this recipe because she makes a mean spaghetti and meatballs, yet I haven’t had them in like 10 years being meat free. I hope you get the same enjoyment and nourishment from Spaghetti Squash and Chickpea Meatballs as I have lately, okay, ready?

  • NS is hiring! Check out this post for more details
  • I’m wrapping up final edits on my cookbook manuscript- it’s amazing how long the process is from starting to write a cookbook to editing, designing, and finally saying the words “finished”! I’m not there yet, but can taste the finish line which means it’s one step closer to getting it into YOUR kitchens. I’m so proud of the recipes and know you are going to love them as much as I do (hint hint, burgers, pasta, cookies, raw treats, and so much more!). In the meantime, I have FNCE I’m attending this weekend for my first time ever- it’ll be interesting since I’m not a huge fan of the relationship between sponsors and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics but am curious to see what speakers there are. Would you all like to “follow” my journey there? I’m going to Periscope some of my activity at FNCE so you can follow along just be sure to add me on Periscope @mckelhill.
  • FLASH SALE has been extended just 1 more day, just because it’s Friday and you’re awesome…and the weekend is the perfect time to start batch cookin’! Download the Batch Cooking eBook here.
