Fresh cranberries are small, tart, and vibrantly red. They’re an embodiment of family gatherings, cozy winter days, and the holiday season. Despite being a modern symbol for holiday cheer, the love for these festive fruits started in the early 1500s.
Running has a way of making us feel alive. It’s natural and invigorating to feel our feet on the earth and the breeze roll off our skin. From a path in the woods, a busy city sidewalk, or a gym treadmill, we have a sense of freedom when we run. Freedom from our thoughts, to-do lists, and work. Whether we’ve run a marathon or around the neighborhood, we must remember to care for our bodies when we get home. After a run, our food choices, actions, and sleep schedules affect us more than we know!
In our latest blog, we put together some nutrition tips that anyone – whether you’re running in a marathon or just starting a couch to 5k program – can benefit from!

Choosing the right diet can be a difficult and time-consuming task. In my experience, the most effective diets are not about sacrifices or restrictions. A sustainable diet is about finding the ideal balance of macronutrients to give your body what it needs to power through your daily activities. Whether your day-to-day routine requires manual labor or sitting at a desk, it’s possible to create a well-balanced meal plan that leaves you satisfied. That’s why, in my professional experience, I focus on creating flexible diet plans specifically formulated to fit individual needs.

Life is busy. We never seem to have enough time: to cook, relax, or complete all the little errands that are constantly accumulating on our “to-do” lists. Eating a healthy breakfast is a small but effective way to set your day on the right track. Unfortunately, breakfast often ends up taking a backseat or is completely sacrificed because of our lack of time. While I may not be able to gift you extra hours in the day, I may be able to help you better organize your breakfast so you can spend less time in the kitchen and still have a filling and healthy meal.
