My Favorite Healthy Holiday Treats

My Favorite Healthy Holiday Treats

  The holiday season is a time of year that we focus more on our families, on giving to others…and on food!  And I’m all for that. I love holiday treats. What I don’t love is foods that cause me to have unpleasant digestive symptoms, breakouts on my skin, low energy, an unhappy mood, and tight clothes. No thanks! I’m a firm believer that the foods we eat really do influence our mood and the way we feel, including our self esteem.  And I also believe there are ways we can enjoy holiday treats and our favorite indulgent foods, that won’t wreck our healthy...

My #1 Tip For Thanksgiving

My #1 Tip For Thanksgiving

  Guess what? Deprivation, even during the holidays, isn’t really a healthy approach. There’s nothing very new there, right? But why do we do more harm than good when we restrict food and deprive ourselves? Because it breeds more of an “all or nothing” mentality, or what I like to call a diet mentality. Remember a time when you went for so long without certain foods or feeling really hungry — like when you were dieting — and you finally decided to break and have a chocolate chip cookie. But instead of the one cookie, you had the entire box of cookies,...

Detoxifying Green Soup + Why I Love A Liquid-Only Day

  Since I returned from my health & education retreat at Sanoviv Medical Institute a few weeks ago, I’ve been loving the practice of incorporating a liquid day (or partial liquid day) into my weekly routine. At Sanoviv, they teach holistic health and that food is medicine for our bodies, both for prevention and for healing. Sanoviv practices a liquid day once a week with their patients and guests. It’s designed to give the digestive system a rest, and it consists of a variety of smoothies, green drinks, hot and cold teas, blended soups, bone broths, nut milks, and plenty...

My Top Takeaways From My Health Retreat

I just recently returned home from my first ever health retreat at the beautiful Sanoviv Medical Institute in Rosarito, Mexico on the Baja coast overlooking the Pacific Ocean. I spent 5 days at this magical location with the most incredible group of people. We laughed, we cried, we bonded, we detoxed, we drank green juice, we enjoyed delicious organic meals together and we enjoyed what we all agreed were some of the best spa treatments we’ve ever had, at home or in our travels. Sanoviv is a state-of-the-art, fully-licensed hospital and health resort that offers a unique blend of...

8 Grocery Shopping Tips That I Swear By

Photo Credit: Jason Masters   I realize that grocery shopping can be a pain for lots of folks. Healthy grocery shopping, and doing so as economically as possible? That can be downright maddening. However, I do firmly stand by the fact that preparing as much of your own food as possible is an important key to reaching your health and weight loss goals, and maintaining them for the long run. Preparing more of your own foods is a huge part of making a lifestyle change. And that’s what I want you to learn — how to make a lifestyle change. So in the spirit of convincing you that...

What Are You Waiting For?

“The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago; the second best time is now.” Chinese proverb Are you exactly where you want to be right now with your eating and healthy lifestyle habits? Are you exactly where you want to be right now with your health? As a health coach, something that I hear so often in conversation with other people when I share what I do with them, is, “Oh that’s cool that you’re so into healthy living. I really need to make some positive changes in the way I eat/exercise/sleep/live.” Well, isn’t now the ideal time to start? My...
