Cheers to Chia

Move over flax and hemp seeds, there is a new “it” seed in town that has the health conscious community talking. Yes, you guessed it— it seems that chia seeds have taken the lead. This small seed produces big benefits.  Aside from being a nutritional powerhouse filled with an easily digestible form of protein that […]

Drawing the Line at Pink Slime

3 Ideas A Busy Person Can’t Live Without

I’ll come right out and say it: I love being busy! My clients do, too. Lately, one of the things I’ve noticed is that many of us get “swept away” with the excitement of a full and bustling life. You end up feeling threadbare, worn out, and at the mercy of your “to-do list.” You […]

Keen on Quinoa

If I had to list my favorite foods, quinoa would be right up there with kale & chocolate, of course.  If you are not familiar with quinoa, now is the time to get acquainted. Quinoa is loaded with vitamins and minerals like riboflavin, magnesium and iron.  It contains all the essential amino acids which gives […]

Do You Ever Sit Down?

Is this how you eat: Standing over the sink? Hovering over the island in your kitchen? Picking bites off your kids’ plates? On your way out the door? Crumbs falling on your lap as you drive? Who has time to SIT for a meal? I am busy. You are busy. And what’s the difference if […]

Chocolate for Breakfast?

I am serious! Today is Valentine’s Day, and chocolate is all around us. Go ahead and indulge (but don’t forget about the kale, too).  And while we all have chocolate on our minds, I thought it would be most appropriate to introduce you to Sue Ann Gleason, founder of Chocolate for Breakfast, who also believes […]
