Health & Nutrition - Peanut Butter and Jilly

I’m as passionate about wellness as I am about yummy food! Life is too short to deprive yourself of the foods you love! Part of living a healthy and happy life is eating delicious food! Which is why in addition to the hundreds of yummy recipes on my blog – My cookbook, Easy Low-Cal Vegan Eats includes plenty of mouth-watering and crave-worthy recipes that are easy, low-cal vegan, and gluten free!

So now, instead of cutting out carbs, sweets, or savory treats – you can make healthy, balanced choices, and leave a little room to enjoy the foods you love! I’m a big advocate for cooking and baking at home because it allows you to make healthier vegan or gluten free versions of your favorite dishes! For example, for a sweet treat, take 5 minutes to mix up batter and bake up my Oatmeal Banana Bread that is better for you, super easy, and crazy delicious, moist, and perfectly sweet!

There are a few benefits of doing this: It’s fun, you are in the drivers seat of what you’re consuming, and can choose healthier swaps and ingredients. Because you know you get to indulge in a donut for dessert, you’ll probably be more motivated to enjoy a healthy, nutritious, and tasty dinner. And, since you had a filling, balanced, and deliciously plant-based dinner, you’re not starving and are less likely to over-do-it!

For my best tips on how I manage my weight, enjoy a deliciously balanced plant-based diet, and always save room for dessert – check out my cookbook, Easy Low-Cal Vegan Eats!

Food is just one component to living a healthy live, but it’s an important one! I also strongly encourage everyone to get plenty of exercise, hydration, sleep, and simply to take time to love yourself and those around you. I have a holistic view on health and my knowledge of nutrition aids me in creating super yummy plant-based recipes along with giving you guys some of my personal health hacks! I believe that everyone should enjoy a primarily plant-based diet full of whole foods! 90% of what you should consume should be lean protein, tons of veggies, fruits, whole grains, and healthy fats. But, I also believe in balance. Life is short I encourage everyone to save room for dessert!

I received my Nutrition Certification from The Nutritious Life Studio.
