I SURVIVED THE FOURTH TRIMESTER

‘Survive’ might not be the best word. It could also be a potentially triggering word for some, and if that’s the case, I apologize. I just couldn’t think of a more accurate way to put it. Life with a newborn is basically just survival mode. […]

SNEAKING AWAY FOR SOME SELF CARE WITH PANTENE

Bath time for me was always luxurious. Nothing was better than soaking in the tub after an intense workout or relaxing in the bath on a Friday night after a long week. But a shower? Well that never felt like a luxury, just a necessity. […]

What I ACTUALLY Needed In My Hospital Bag

You may remember from this video and this post that I showed you guys what I was packing to bring to the hospital for my delivery. Well, now that I’ve gone through it, I have gotten a bunch of requests to let you know what […]

ALL ABOUT BREASTFEEDING

This post took a really long time to write because, well, I’m pretty much always breastfeeding so my hands are full….seems like an appropriate excuse, right? Anyhow, I’m excited to finally dive into all of your questions and be able to give longer, better answers […]

MY TOP 10 NEWBORN MUST-HAVES

It feels so funny writing this blog post because I am such a newbie mom – I have no idea what I’m doing and ask for advice and help with everything! So it feels strange to be giving any sort of “mom advice” on the […]

POSTPARTUM RECOVERY: 6 WEEKS LATER

It is completely insane that I am now writing a follow up to my postpartum blog 6 weeks later. The cliche that time goes by quickly could not be more true. It was very scary to be so vulnerable online at a time in my […]

POSTPARTUM RECOVERY: THE MISSING CHAPTER

What to expect when you’re expecting…I think for the most part we’ve figured it out. Thanks to friends and family, the media and the infinite amount of resources, the basic symptoms of pregnancy are very well known. In fact, they are so well known that […]

OUR BIRTH STORY

I’m sitting on the couch about to write my birth story, staring ahead at my baby Lily Scarlett. She’s been in this world for one week and one day and I still can’t believe it. I wanted to write this while everything is still fresh […]

FIRST LOOK AT #BABYKALE ‘S NURSERY

I am super excited about partnering with buybuy BABY in creating #babykale’s nursery. When I found out I was having a girl, I was ecstatic. I mean, of course I would have been happy with a healthy baby regardless of the gender, but let’s be […]

MY EXPERIENCE WITH GREEN BEAVER ALUMINUM FREE ANTIPERSPIRANT

I’ve spoken to you at length on the blog about brand partnerships and sharing products with my community. So you know first hand how important it is for me to partner with brands that align with my values and that, of course, I think would […]

WHAT’S IN MY HOSPITAL BAG

With less than two weeks until our due date, I can finally say my hospital bag is packed! A lot of you have requested this video so I put something together but I need to provide some disclosure…this is my first time doing this and […]

ADVICE FROM A MOM BOSS

I’m not talking about myself. These mom bosses I am referring to are the incredible community of supportive working moms I have had the pleasure of corresponding with through social media this year. When I first came out with my fears of maternity leave on […]

MY TOP RANKING PODCASTS

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while or subscribe to my newsletter, you know I am a podcast junkie. Instead of just linking one or two in the Kale Khronicle this week under my #obsessed category, I thought I would give you a […]

Healthy Tips if You Work in an Office!

As you may or may not know, I worked in a corporate office environment for just over 6 years before doing Kale and Krunches full time. And believe it or not, I found it WAY easier to live a healthy lifestyle in those days compared […]

My WORST Pregnancy Symptom

Overall I have been VERY lucky with how I’ve felt in my pregnancy. And no matter what, I cannot complain. But I’m always being real with you guys so I also won’t pretend that I’ve felt 100% amazing and 100% like myself. I’ll give it […]

What I Eat in a Day | On the Go
