What’s in my suitcase

I’m getting ready to head out of town, and my goal is to maintain my nutritional style as best I can. Perfection is not for me, but letting it all go and eating what’s there doesn’t work for me either. Let’s say I don’t want to come home feeling worse than when I left. So I’ve been gathering what I need to keep me feeling good, while allowing me to enjoy myself. It’s a vacation, after all. Want to see what’s in my carry-on? It’s well curated, with a lot of pre-testing and thought. Feel free to steal my ideas; What’s already packed: • Athletic Greens I discovered Athletic Greens recently, and they’re already an important part of my day. Most green powders have to be masked by a smoothie, but this one tastes delicious on its own. Consider this green powder a supplement, not just a blend of greens. You’ll find raw super foods, probiotics, enzymes, herbs and minerals, and the quality is top notch. You can order yours right here. • doTERRA Essential Oils Whether you’re flying, driving or taking the Acela, these precious oils need to be in your bag. I don’t leave home without lavender essential…

Men’s Nutritional Style

  I talk and write about women, but the truth is I work with men too, and often (I got a lot of grief from the guys on the little black dress analogy in my book). So, gentlemen, and the ladies who take care of you, this is for you. Here are my top 5 tips on how to live your best men’s Nutritional Style. 1) Movement A healthy heart and cardiovascular system is the key to living a long and healthy life, so regular movement is important. You know that, right? Movement also helps with stress, and boosts your fat burning while building muscle which then burns more calories. And burning more calories helps you keep your weight down, where it should be. Guys tend to carry extra weight in the middle, and extra fat in that area in particular contributes to heart disease and puts your health at risk. SO move…more. Run, walk fast, lift weights, order Beach Body, go to Zumba…Whatever it is that floats your boat, (mountain biking, anyone?) do it. Now. 2) Stress Stress promotes free radicals that lead to aging; it lowers your immunity and creates inflammation that can then also lead to a…

The Dirty Dozen Food Additives

  Part of the reason I wrote Discover Your Nutritional Style is because I believe that most of the physical, and emotional issues that people face today can be improved or eliminated by making changes to their diet. In my book, I call out the “Bad Boys” of nutrition, and that includes all processed foods. I’ve seen, first hand, the enormous difference that eliminating processed foods can make. At the very least, you owe it to yourself to learn what’s really in those foods, so that you can make an informed decision. It is guaranteed to surprise you. That’s why I love sharing the Environmental Working Group (EWG). They’re a well researched source of information about what’s really in our foods, cosmetics, cleaning products, sunscreen, and more. The EWG website is full of user-friendly information that’s easy to find, and understand. Best-known for their Dirty Dozen guide to produce, highlighting produce infected with chemicals and pesticides, the EWG has become a wonderful tool for living a clean and healthy lifestyle. I’ve referred to their informative guides over and over throughout the years, and you’ll find them in my book, as well. Now, the EWG has come to our rescue again,…

Supplementing your health

  Want to know a semi-secret? I’m not a big supplement-pusher, and pills actually make me gag. And psssttt…in my search for solutions to my previous health problems, I consulted with what feels like hundreds of so-called experts who, instead of asking me about my diet, recommended hundreds of dollars worth of supplements. I used to have drawers full of vitamins, but it wasn’t until I truly figured out my Nutritional Style that I found relief from my health issues, lost weight and began to feel amazing again. When I became a Health and Nutrition Coach, I decided to do things differently. While I do recommend some selected supplements, because my clients sometimes have deficiencies or feel better with them, my focus is on food and how you feel. The time when I DO recommend supplementation is in the winter months, when local produce is scarce and when our bodies have to work harder to fight off colds, flus and defend itself against the cold and lack of sunshine. If you or your family seems to get sick often, maybe it’s time to supplement your nutrition. Here’s what’s on my personal supplement shelf now. Elderberry: This tasty herb is antiviral…
