what you can learn from cancer patients

  One of my good friends asked the other day, over tea, why my new website doesn’t talk more about Cancer? How can nutrition and food be stylish and fun, when I work with so many critical patients? She glanced up at me, over her berry breakfast, and wondered why I don’t talk more about illness and sickness, and the sadness that I must meet each day? And she inquired gently, what about your Cancer patients? I partner with one of the top Breast Cancer centers in the Washington, DC area. They refer their patients to me, women who have just been diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Women who are often reeling, still, from their news. My friend was curious. I understood why. If you haven’t dealt with Cancer, or a serious illness, you might wonder too. Maybe you assume that nutrition coaching or analyzing one’s diet and food is for vain women who want to look good. It’s all about being skinny, after all. Isn’t it? Not in my world. It’s about feeling great. It’s about reducing inflammation; aches, pains, sinus, infertility, migraines, auto-immune issues, and even the big C. Cancer. It’s about the energy and awesomeness that you feel…

The Well-Stocked Fridge

Imagine having someone call and say that they want to photograph your fridge.  It’s sort of like having someone want to peek into your clothes closet.  I’d worry if I…

Yerba Mate isn’t tea

  I’m not a coffee girl, as I’ve shared, so teas and warming drinks help me get through the day. I believe that almost anything can be solved by a…

How a Juice Cleanse Brought Mr. & Mrs. Thompson closer

My husband and I recently did an eight-day juice fast… not a big deal for me, as a nutrition coach, but a pretty big step for my hub.  His idea of “green” was sautéed spinach and eggs, and healthy food means his morning protein smoothie.  But green juice?  Never. It turned out to be a pretty big deal for our marriage.  You’re probably familiar with the physical effects of cleansing or juicing.. glowing skin (wow- like a moonbeam), weight loss (a good five for me, eight for him—darn those men), increased energy (energizer bunny- after two days for me, the entire time for him-darn again),  and clear thinking; but not much is said about the emotional piece. There’s a big part of the cleansing ritual that rocks our emotional world. The more intense the cleanse + the longer you go, the more profound your experience may be. Juicers should come with a warning: Proceed at risk.  Juicing may put you in touch with long forgotten emotional issues you’d rather leave dormant. Each time I cleanse, I’m surprised at the insights, revelations and forgiveness that surfaces.  Old thoughts come in, sometimes days of negative stuff, comments, hurts, offense, fears. Why am I…
