Have you ever been out of an ingredient when you were making a favourite recipe at home…

… and after digging around in your pantry, you decide to go without it.

And the result is OK. But it’s not GREAT.

In this blog, I’m going to talk about an important ingredient that can take your weight loss results from OK to great!

In fact, it’s an ingredient I rely on myself.

One ingredient that’s missing in a lot of weight loss programs is accountability and support.

It’s having someone to help motivate you along the way!

Actually … that’s more like three ingredients, right? But they all fit together.

These ingredients are SUPER important, especially a couple of weeks after starting a new program when your enthusiasm starts to wear off.

It’s also important when your results are stalling out a little, and you could benefit from an outside eye so you know what to do next.

The ingredient I’m talking about is working with an experienced nutritionist with a PROVEN process.

Hiring a coach is exactly what I do when I’m working toward a goal I’m committed to achieving!

Having someone there to give you the support, accountability, and coaching is a LIFE-CHANGER.

It’s rare to have someone just as invested in your goals as YOU are!

As a nutritionist, I can help you eliminate trial and error, keep you on track with your goals, and help hold you accountable to follow through on your plan.

PLUS … I can help address all the other factors affecting your results, from exercise and nutrition to stress and sleep and a lot more!

If you haven’t reached your weight loss goal yet, or you feel stuck, this could be the reason why!

I firmly believe that everyone needs a coach. A coach will help you see your own blind spots and show you what’s possible. As a matter of fact, I have a coach to help me build my business.

🌿When you want a tasty special occasion drink … but you also want it to be healthy and alcohol-free, this is a great choice!

🥳(Note: a special occasion can mean any time you want a fizzy drink.)



(makes 2 servings)

  • 1 cup (140 grams) pitted cherries (fresh or frozen/thawed)
  • ¼ cup (15 grams) fresh mint leaves
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) lime juice
  • 3 cups (700 ml) sugar-fee sparkling water like La Croix (black cherry flavour if possible)
  • Optional: sugar-free sweetener of choice

Place the cherries, mint, and lime juice in a high-speed blender or food processor. Pulse a couple of times until they are just combined and not completely pulverized.

Scrape out of the container, placing equally in two glasses filled with ice. Pour the sparkling water over it. Add sugar-free sweetener to taste, stirring well. Enjoy!
