Hey guys! If you follow me on Instagram (which you should 😜) you would know I was out of town! I had a golf tournament about two hours away, which usually I would travel with my parents but they where both not able to take me, so Hayden took over! lol thanks 😘

If often get asked how I stay on track with my healthy lifestyle while traveling and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to write about it! First, if anyone was curious, I did pretty well in my tournament. I shot 73 the first day, which was a very exciting round including back-to-back birdies and chip-ins from tough lies. The second day I struggled to get things going, shooting 80, tying for second and losing the playoff to place third. I was very disappointed, but over all walked away happy with the effort I made. 😌

I love eggs, and you’ll see them all over my Instagram. Usually scrambled or sunny side up on top of avocado toast. YUM. Many of you know that eggs are part of a healthy diet and a great source of protein, but there is still the misconception out there that the yolk is “bad” for you. Not true at all. Let’s see why you should be eating the whole egg and break down the myths.

Oatmeal is a great, classic healthy breakfast. But I know, it can get boring. We all know oatmeal is a great complex carb full of fiber, but a bowl of oats by itself isn’t really a balanced breakfast because it lacks a good amount of protein. That’s why I love egg white oats!

Now, I know you may be thinking “ew… egg whites in oatmeal?!” Just wait, my friend. Trust me, you can’t taste them! Egg whites are a great source of lean protein and instantly add a protein boost to your oats! Also, they make the oatmeal super fluffy, which makes you feel like your eating more oatmeal (without the extra carbs). You can make them on the stove, or in the microwave for an even faster option. This recipe is super simple and will be sure to satisfy your taste buds and tummy.

Okay, I gotta admit Chipotle is my favorite “fast food” restaurant. I love all the flavors and I love getting to create my own burrito bowl with whatever I want! Although Chipotle is a healthier option than many of its fellow fast food chains, you can whip a quick burrito bowl at home that’s even better! I’ll show you how a few healthy swaps can take a classic Burrito Bowl from a health disaster to a perfectly healthy meal!
