Hey there!

How’s your week going?

It’s been a busy one for me. I’ve just arrived home after being on the “road” for the last 10 days. I’m excited to settle back into my routine and be in my kitchen! Can you relate to this feeling after a trip?

Long days on the road has left me with a lot of time to think over the last few weeks. I’ve been finding my mind wander to the word “moderation”.

I use this word a lot to talk about many different things in health and food. But, what does it really mean? What does it mean to moderate your health and live a life of moderation?

Is it sticking to a numbers rule?




Is it a feeling?

Relaxed, excited, care-free…

Or, is it something else?

I truly believe that however you look at it, all of these definitions can be moderation.

The thing with moderation is that it’s unique to you. Everyone has a different idea of what it will look like for them. 

To me, moderation means to limit the not so healthy things in my life.

I would never think of moderating the good and healthy things in my life. There’s no such thing as too much laughter, too much meditation, too much water, too many vegetables, or too much yoga 🙂 

When it comes to moderation, there’s no hard and fast rule in my book. As long as I feel I’m sticking to a life and diet full of health 80% of the time, then I’m not going to worry about the other 20%. That 20% is for fun and cake!

These are some examples of a few of the things that I include in my definition of moderation:

For coffee, my happy moderation is every 2-3 days in a very small cup.

For milk, my moderation is a splash in my coffee every 2-3 days.

For sugar, my moderation is only having treats with added sugar 1-2 times per week.

For meat, my moderation is 3-4 times per month.

For wine…. there is no moderation! …..I wish! I try to keep alcohol consumption to only a few glasses a week (unless I’m on vacation ;)).

As you can see, there is no rule.

I’m unique and so are you. Your life is unique. Your wants are unique. Your needs are unique. Your moderation is also unique.

What works for you will not work for someone else.

So, what is your moderation?

What does it look like to you to live a moderate and healthy lifestyle?

These are the real questions you have to ask yourself.

And most of all…

Are you currently living a happy life of moderation? If not, why and how can you get to that place?

I seriously want to know your answers! Comment below!

Love & Moderation,


P.S. Are you looking for a way to find happy moderation with the sugar in your life? Is sugar ruling your every day and your health?
