I hold myself to a standard of grace, not perfection

Grace saved me from having to hold up the facade that everything was perfect. It allowed me to accept myself for who I am, what I have to offer, imperfections and all.
It wasn't an easy road, but the freedom I've gained from myself is priceless. Ultimately, it's our OWN selves that we are fighting. If this is you, I've been there. There were some dark days, but when I committed to taking care of myself and showing myself grace, the dark clouds began to disappear.

If you haven't shared your struggles with anyone yet, I'd encourage you to take the first step, whether that's a family member, friend or co-worker. There is SO much shame lurking in perfection, and when we shed light on shame (aka share it with others) it can no longer survive. Shame wants you to think you're alone, that no one can help you and that you should keep it to yourself. I'm here to tell you that couldn't be further from the truth. You are NOT meant to fight this battle alone. The bravest thing I ever did was be honest with myself and others about where I was at. This way they could check on me, support me during my tough days and help celebrate my breakthroughs.

If you're struggling, I'm here for you. I know not all of us are blessed with a strong support system and I know how crucial these times are. If you need someone to be a sounding board, I'm always here.

Letting go of the rules

letting go of the rules

Letting Go - I used to think if it wasn't "intense" exercise, it wasn't worth my time. Boy was I wrong! Looking back, I can see how twisted my thought process was. Longing for a specific result led me down a slippery slope. Until I decided to reclaim my health.

It wasn't an easy process, but over time I began to notice a significant shift, not only in my physical well being but my mental and emotional too. I believe it's all so interconnected. When we can love ourselves enough to accept ourselves exactly where we are as we are, so many things begin to align. For me, that was letting go of all the "rules" I had adopted along my journey. The rules about what I could and couldn't eat, how I needed to exercise to achieve the perfect body, etc.

Fast forward 2 years, and I've discovered a deep love for moving my body in gentle ways that ultimately make me feel more grounded and connected (Yoga). I've fallen in love with walking. Nothing brings me more joy than feeling fresh air on my cheeks and the soothing sensation I get when I become connected with nature.

I want you to know that if you're struggling to start a fitness program because it's intimidating, scary and seems unmanageable, I can help you.

Fry Sauce Burgers with Caramelized Onions by RetiFit Recipes

Fry Sauce Burgers with Caramelized Onions

Fry Sauce Burgers with Caramelized Onions

Growing up, I was never a fan of burgers. I was the girl ordering copious amounts of ranch with my chicken fingers, the more sides of ranch the better 🙂 Since then I've given up my childhood favorite.

These Fry Sauce Burgers with Caramelized Onions though, what's not to like? With the sweetness of the honey and caramelized onion it's the ideal combination of sweet and savory.




  • 1-1.5 lb beef, bison or turkey (I used beef)
  • 1 medium sweet onion thinly sliced
  • 1 cup Chopped spinach
  • 1 egg
  • 2-3 tbsp honey
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp sea Salt


Sweet Potato Fries

  • 2 large sweet potatoes (Feeds 2-3)
  • 3 tbs coconut oil or avocado oil
  • Sea salt
  • Baking sheet lined with parchment paper


Fry Sauce: 

  • 2 Tbsp Sir Kensington's or Just Mayo
  • 4-6 Tbsp Sir Kensington's Ketchup


  1. Use "this" recipe to make your Sweet Potato Fries first. Let them bake in the oven while you cook your burgers.
  1. In a sauce pan on medium-low heat, pour your coconut oil and a tad of salt in with your onions. Cook about 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Set aside when done.
  1. When onions are near done, place remaining ingredients in a bowl: meat, chopped spinach, egg, honey, garlic, pepper, garlic powder and sea salt. Mix well with your hands.
  1. Form 4-6 patties. In a large sauce pan on medium heat, add a tad of coconut oil or ghee to the pan. Wait to add burgers until the pan is hot. Cook for about 6 or so minutes on each side, however I recommend you check them regularly.
  1. Prepare your sauce by adding both ingredients in to a small bowl and mixing well.
  1. Arrange your Fry Sauce Burgers with Caramelized Onions with a dollop of fry sauce and sautéed onions on top. Serve with Sweet Potato Fries and if you're like me, more sauce for fry dippin'
