Nut Free Pesto Pasta with Roasted Veggies


The First Step to a Healthier Lifestyle

In the modern world, we know that eating healthy and exercising are two of the best actions you can make to improve your life and the way you feel both mentally and physically. However, a lot of people don’t know that the “American Healthy” isn’t always the best route to take to redefine your health, weight, and energy level. We all want glowing skin, fit bodies, a clear head and a good mood. By opening our eyes to the various healing benefits of some foods, we can become the healthiest versions of ourselves. Given how important this is to our well-being as a community, we decided to partner with Carly Paige, sole curator of FitLiving Eats - a virtual kitchen that dives into healthy recipes and cooking tutorials that are entertaining and informative.  Carly is a culinary nutrition expert & chef who curated a career based on her passion for helping others live their best, healthiest lives.

Vegan Broccoli Cheese Soup

A lot of people push health to the side because it’s easier to grab a bite from a fast food joint on their way home from work than to cook a nutritional dinner at home. Although doing this provides the instant gratification of a full belly, the health detriments associated with doing this multiple times a month are monumental. When you’re eating healthy, the positive changes being made on your plate often expand to other areas of your life. Carly focuses on the healing aspects of different foods and incorporates them into her recipes, sharing her knowledge with the world and inspiring healthier lifestyles. She believes that eating healthy should be a breeze, and you shouldn’t have to forfeit flavor and variety when filling your plate with nutritious alternatives. It should be easy to avoid eating the unhealthy staples in the average American diet.

Simply Swapped Everyday Cookbook

Author of Simply Swapped Everyday, a best-selling cookbook, Carly Paige shares lifestyle tips and recipes that are all about swapping unhealthy items on your plate for more nutrient-dense substitutes. This method is labeled as her Simply Swapped Method and is the first step to living a more full and invigorating life. As Carly mentions on her website, “The lifestyle tips aren’t just another superficial way to practice self-care. It’s a way to connect, heal and thrive as you strive to live your best (not perfect) life.”  If you aren’t already convinced that Carly Paige knows what she’s doing,  you can view her notable accomplishments on her website, such as presenting at NASA Headquarters during their Health & Safety Week in March of 2020.
