Do you ever hear a quote that stops you dead in your tracks? The kind that makes you take pause and just stays with you? One that you will forever repeat and think about… I heard one today and felt the urge to share it. I was listening to my favorite podcaster Angelo Coppola from […]

In the midst of summer heat and humidity, insect repellent is a must in some areas of the world if we don’t want to become bug food immediately upon going outdoors. We spray it on while holding our breath and closing our eyes, wait for it to settle, take a big gasp of air sucking […]
I’ve learned A LOT lately about the effects of municipal water and the impact it can have on our health. And because of this information I am really aware of the water I consume and its filtration. In fact, I wrote a blog about it over a year ago. Are you familiar with the water […]
There seems to be an ongoing debate on whether organic food is actually more nutritious than its conventional counterpart. Spending several years teaching organics and the NOPs certifying program, I personally can’t imagine how conventional food could even compare to organic food – which is grown in more nutrient rich soil without the aid of […]
I’ll be honest, I don’t really eat ice cream. In fact, the few times I have had some in the past several years it didn’t sit right with me. I almost always got an immediate stomach ache that lasted for hours. And I knew it had nothing to do with the dairy as dairy still […]
“Going Paleo” means eliminating grains. ALL grains! – which can have a drastic effect on your body and blood sugar levels. Dense carbs, like grains, break down into simple sugars (glucose) in our digestive system. When over consumed, or consumed in the standard manner (through refined products), these types of carbs spike blood sugar levels, […]
I woke up this morning to the Today Show FINALLY touting some good nutritional advice for a change, no thanks to Joy Bauer! Anyone who knows me knows I can’t stand her “nutritional guidance” which is pro-factory, pro-governmental dietary training, pro-latest fad and absolutely NO real conversations about how food is affecting us through this […]
In the next months and years we will be hearing a LOT about FODMAPs and low FODMAP diets. Partly due to the recent gluten intolerance study (which I walk talk about in an upcoming post) and partly in due to an increasing number of people suffering from IBS. A low FODMAP diet first originated from a research […]
We are a coffee addicted nation. We drink it to get moving in the morning, as a mid morning push through, after lunch, and a mid afternoon pick me up just to get us through the day. In the latest National Coffee Association Study, 63% of Americans drink coffee daily with about 80% drinking it […]
This whole nutrition thing is hella confusing! Low fat or high fat? Eat carbs or avoid carbs? High protein or low protein? Olive oil or vegetable oil? Butter or margarine? For the past 60+ years we have been receiving A LOT of varying information about what to eat, how much, when and even who with… […]
