Thanks for visiting, health-conscious Mama!

nicole-and-lucasIf you love tips, recipes, and ideas for raising healthy kids, and want to connect with your kids instead of yelling, you’ll feel right at home here.

(Skip to the recipes & posts.)

This is a sisterhood for health-conscious Mamas like you to find healthy recipes for the whole family (picky eaters included), as well as resources on attachment parenting and green living.

Speaking of resources, be sure to grab my 10 Kid-Friendly Healthy Meals (in under 10 Minutes). It’s the perfect resource when you’re in a pinch.

Since becoming a mom, this is my passion.

Before motherhood, I taught women how to lose weight and keep it off, even when nothing else had worked. I still do that on the side. I’ve crafted my own unique approach, and you can read inspiring success stories from other women. But everything else you’ll find here at Revitalize is focused on Mamas.

Grab a smoothie or kombucha, get comfy, and let’s dive in together. Browse your topics of interest here, or read my latest blog posts below. And please don’t hesitate to say hello! I’d love to hear from you.

A New Year’s Pick-Me-Up!

If you’re looking for a little pick-me-up, I’ve got just the thing.

I get a LOT of requests to share my smoothie recipes. I don’t usually measure when I make my smoothies – you know, a handful of this, a little of that! – but this time, I made an exception for my favorite green smoothie recipe.

This recipe is one of my all-time best. I recently hosted a small gathering at my home, and the other women LOVED it – and they’re not even Health Junkies!
