    Asian Tuna Salad | Paleo, Low Carb, Gluten Free by Strive to Thrive Nutrition

    This Asian Tuna Salad is my kind of salad– no lettuce at all!

    I’m joking. Sort of.

    I feel like salads are the thing everyone turns to when they are trying to eat healthier. And there’s nothing necessarily wrong with that, so long as you are using good quality dressings and balancing all those veggies with some fat and protein for a satisfying meal.… Read the rest

    Artichoke Basil Chicken Spaghetti Squash | Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Low Carb by Strive to Thrive Nutrition

    Necessity is the mother of creation, isn’t that what they say? Chefs often say their favorite meals are the ones they whip up after a long shift from whatever ingredients are left in the kitchen. I’d like to pretend I’m always prepared– I try to keep a well-stocked pantry, I’m always flagging recipes in magazines or on Pinterest, and I go to the grocery store way too often.… Read the rest

    5 Signs You Need to Work on Your Health, Regardless of Weight | Strive to Thrive Nutrition

    It’s a common belief that slim people must be healthy, motivated and active. Either that, or they have been “blessed” with amazing metabolism.

    On the other hand, overweight people are clearly unhealthy, weak-willed and lazy. Or they have been “cursed” with slow metabolism.

    How to Tackle Those Last Ten Pounds | Strive to Thrive Nutrition

    What should you do about those last ten pounds? Embrace them!

    At a recent family event, my sister leaned over to me during dinner and asked, “How much do you weigh?”

    “About 160 pounds,” I replied.

    “Same,” she said. “And you know what? We’re both beautiful and we don’t stress about everything we eat. Isn’t it great?”

    Before you think my sister was gloating, just know that it hasn’t always been this way for us.… Read the rest

    Paleo Apple Crisp | Grain free, gluten free, healthy by Strive to Thrive Nutrition

    Have you ever used one of those nifty apple peeler/corer/slicer contraptions? My mom used to own one and they certainly made apple crisp-making way too easy. She would quickly prep a half dozen apples, throw them into a baking dish, whip up a buttery, cinnamon-y oat streusel, and about forty-five torturous minutes of wait later, we would have a piping hot dish of apple crisp all to ourselves!… Read the rest
