Hi! I’m Danielle.
I am not a registered dietitian or a macro coach, I am a wife and mom to two beautiful little girls on a journey to feel my best inside and out! My goal is to bring you recipes to help you do the same! We live in what I believe is one of the most beautiful places in the world, Alaska. We spend our summers fishing and our winters skiing, the outdoors is where we thrive. When inside, I find joy in creating new and exciting recipes with everyday ingredients and passing on these creations to you and my family. If I wouldn’t feed it to my family you can guarantee you won’t get it here.
Working full time while also trying to keep myself and the house fed can seem overwhelming at times.
I’ve found the more I prep and have key / staple items on hand the better I am able to juggle the craziness of the week. Here at ohsnapmacros.com I try to bring you quick and easy meals for this exact reason and meals that can be prepared for one, two or an entire family. Even if you’re not tracking macros these well rounded recipes will fit into your lifestyle and help you navigate meal time with ease. The macros detailed in the nutrition section are just a plus!
Macros, what are they? How did I get here?
I started my macro tracking journey after having my second daughter, I needed a change. I had no idea what to expect with tracking macros nor what I was doing. After one week of tracking I instantly became obsessed .. in a healthy way. The sense of food freedom that came with tracking macros was incredible, I quickly figured out I was able to enjoy foods, meals, social situations and beyond without having to worry about what I was going to eat and how I was going to figure out the low carb, dairy free, etc. alternative. I am able to enjoy every situation knowing that I can stay within my macros.
Macros are your three main macronutrients: carbohydrates, fats, and protein. These three macronutrients make up your calories.
After falling in love with tracking my macros I started lightening up some of my favorites recipes to make them more macro friendly and well rounded. The ultimate test was making them also family friendly and toddler approved. This is how ohsnapmacros.com became what it is today, my creative little corner of the internet. I am beyond thankful you’re here and even more-so shocked that you’re here reading this. Thank you.
How do I know what my macros are?
I have my macros assigned to my by my coach, Emma. You can find her programs here. I follow the macros she sets for me whether it be in a cutting phase, reversing or at maintenance, for my specific goals as well as her monthly workout program. To date I have lost over 38 pounds and over 30 inches with her programs alone. You can also find my recipes exclusive to her Shred program.
