Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.Yesterday I had a pre-Thanksgivs meltdown.

Well, not really, but kinda.

I wanted to post the PERFECT Skinny Confidential recipe for you guys.

But I didn’t want to make skinny stuffing or nasty gravy ( sorry, not a fan ).

So alllllll day long I was OCD-ing on WTF to post {?!?!}.

At around 6 pm I decided to text my über-healthy friend, Carly.

And obviously she had the best recipe ever. Because, duh.

I mean, seriously— cinnamon/cider Brussels sprouts?

Heaven.

The easiest directions ever ( makes four servings ): in a large pan over medium heat, heat oil. Cook Brusssels sprouts ( cut side down ), flipping once until browned for ten to twelve minutes. Add apple & pear; cook until soft for five minutes. Add cider & cinnamon; simmer, stirring, until all liquid cooks away.

Oh, & NBD: a serving offers about 3/4 of your daily need for Vitamin C.

I made these today & will def be whipping ‘um up tomorrow for TG.

So good it hurts.

Happy Thanksgiving-eve!

What time is it in Cali? LOL. No, really. I’m exhausted.

We’re in Florida working a trade show for NBAA [ last year's post can be found here ] & each day we’re in full work mode- work, eat, work, work, workout, read, work, blog, work, wine, work. Fun shit.

For anyone who works trade shows on the reg: how do you eat healthy? It’s HARD. There’s very little options. Luckily I came prepared with snacks.

Even though it’s exhausting after the show, I try to squeeze in an hour on the Elliptical..because getting the endorphins going feels so much better than laying around like a lazy slob. Right?!

Love.L

P.S. For those who asked…here’s the deets on the above smoothie [ << this was featured on last month's newsletter; if you're interested in signing up, add your e-mail to the little box to the left ; ). ]
