Facebook: Prep & Pep
My blog offers some of my favorite recipes, but my Instagram page offers SO much more! A quick browse through my photos and you will see I not only love to take pictures of the beautiful recipes I make, I love to share WHY these recipes are nutritionally sound. From vitamins and minerals to the importance of fiber to topics like phytonutrients - I love to show others that you do not have to sacrifice your favorite foods to eat a healthy, balanced diet. Connect with me on Instagram today!
As a stay at home mom who is also a full time student, volunteer, and small business owner - I know life can be busy! I share how I plan, prepare, and push through the tough days and overcome the common obstacles we face on our journey. I show with honesty how to give ourselves grace when life does not go according to plan and how to get back on track. Topics such as basic nutrition, fitness and training, toddler nutrition, and personal anecdotes about motivation, self-sabotage, and self-love are shared through a series of "pep talks." Follow me and let's walk through this journey together!
My name is Hilary Downey. I am a 28 year-old mom to two toddler boys. I am a double major currently obtaining my Bachelors of Science in Nutrition/Dietetics and my Bachelors of Science in Psychology at the University of Central Arkansas.
I know that nutrition and eating behaviors go hand-in-hand; my education in both nutrition and psychology gives me a deeper understanding of eating behaviors and greater tools to better help others not only reach their goals, but maintain them long-term.
My most valid experience yet? I've been there. I was overweight, suffered from low-energy, had an unhealthy relationship with food, and did not know where to begin. I truly believe every woman can learn to balance life, work, relationships, and families while still making herself a priority. All you need are the right tools and the right person behind you to change your life forever.
