Brain Food for Thought

I have the memory of an elephant. I used to remember every single phone number that I called before the days of speed dialing. Faces, places, names. No problem. But where did I put my keys or leave my Blackberry? And did I take my vitamins today? Does this happen to you? Do you oftentimes […]

Hydrate Now With These Juicy Recipes

It’s hot out! And even if you’re blessed with living in a climate that is not experiencing soaring temperatures accompanied by horrible humidity, you still need to think about staying properly hydrated. How many times have you been told to drink your “eight a day”? And, if you’re thirsty (which means that you’re already dehydrated), […]

A Little Ray Goes A Long Way

While growing up in California, I used to compare tan lines with my best friends.  And, whoever was the “tannest” became the glowing envy amongst us. That was then. Even if you don’t deliberately soak up the rays anymore (or “lay out” as I called it in high school), there are those moments when you […]

The Best Kept Nutritional Secret

Like many of you, I have been exposed to dozens, maybe hundreds, of dietary theories.  We all know by now that eating greens and moving our bodies is helpful in achieving optimal health.  But did you know that how you eat (and what you think) is equally important? What if you could increase your metabolic […]

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

No one diet works for everyone. With our unique genetic makeup and individual taste, we cannot all thrive on the same thing. Yet, it seems like every day, there is a new super food or hot diet trend that does wonders for our collective overall health and well-being.  Sure, some people feel energized and wonderful […]

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 […]

Eat Your Soul Greens

No doubt about it: you are what you eat. When you want to be healthy, you’re told to “eat your greens.”  Great advice, certainly.  But yummy kale, scrumptious chard, and delicious bok choy alone do not make a nourished, vibrant, and satisfying life. You and I both know your life is bustling.  And you LIKE […]

Live in Color

As a California native, my eye has always been drawn to brilliant and inviting colors. The image of clear blue skies and green palm trees will be imprinted on my brain forever.  Grey days are gloom and doom.  I am just in a better mood on a bright sunny day.  In other words, a boost […]

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 […]
