What is Foam Rolling?


What is Foam Rolling, Foam Rolling 101 | Nutrition Stripped

You’ve seen me post about it before, but I adore foam rolling, and many of you have asked…what is foam rolling? A legit question since it sounds like the weirdest thing, but I promise if you’re as active as me, or sit for long periods of time working, or simply have tense muscles you’ll LOVE this technique. Foam rolling is all about releasing tense muscle fibers creating more flexibility, length in your muscles, relieve tension, and can help improve lymph, circulation and combat cellulite! I enjoy doing this most before a workout or winding down at night when I do my 15 minute yoga session- turn on some tunes and get rollin’

Lemony Sunchoke Soup


Lemony Sunchoke Soup | Nutrition Stripped

With the sun waking up and shaking off winter, spring and summer bring about times where soup is often left behind unless we’re talking about gazpacho. To soups credit, it’s a dish that should still be incorporated into our spring and summer menus since it’s easy to make, stores well as a leftover, and most importantly the fiber can help us improve our digestion (but take it easy and read my notes on these sunchokes), making us feel great from the inside out when we might be showing a little more midriff and skin, right? The combination of zesty fresh lemon made in a delicate broth surrounding chunks of fiber rich sunchokes, make it the perfect spring soup to welcome into your repertoire!

Looking for San Francisco Interns!



You all know, and I hope you do, that I’m writing my first cookbook that will be out in the Spring of 2016! I’m also doing an amazing photo shoot with my dear talented friend/rockstar photographer Katie Newburn in San Francisco for 2 weeks, non-stop shooting over 120 original recipes for my book (EEEEK!!!).
