Multitasking is great! Like calling a friend while you walk after work, or listening to a podcast while you fold laundry. UNLESS you are eating. “Distracted eating” often leads to over-eating, digestive issues after your meal, and not chewing your food properly. (Not to mention the stains on your clothes!) […]
Bars for Breakfast?
People often ask my opinion about protein bars for breakfast. I get it, some mornings are just too hard to pull out the blender or motivate in the kitchen—this is where Overnight Oats are a lifesaver, but I digress… (see recipe below!) When choosing a bar look for a short […]
What is all this talk about bone broth?
Would you consider swapping your afternoon cup of peppermint tea or perhaps your bedtime cup of chamomile for a mug of bone broth? Before you answer that question, hear me out. While herbal tea is a wonderful home remedy for an upset stomach, sore throat or insomnia, bone broth also […]
A joyful holiday season
If the holidays are supposed to be fun, why do I feel so down? A very important and common question. My guess is that you are either: Over-scheduled Under-scheduled The “over-scheduler’s” tendency to volunteer, sign up, or host events really ramps up at the holidays. Maybe you feel you just […]

Reading food labels is essential! Here are […]
Food and Mood
We are reading so much this past 18 months about the rise in depression rates due to the Covid pandemic. Even more disturbing is that the group most impacted is the 18-25 year old age group, which has a 41% surge in depression and anxiety. In my opinion, we are […]
Stress Management–easier said than done
I hate to throw around the term “burnout”, but after the past year, I think it is wholly appropriate. When we think about managing stress, we generally consider a situation that has a “finite” amount of time: being new at a challenging job, starting college, having an injury, or […]
National Nutrition Month

It IS easy being green…
My intention for 2021 is to switch my family and clients to a predominantly plant-based diet. You do not need to say “adios” to your Tuesday Taco night–I did not say a Vegetarian diet, or throw away your favorite leather boots–I did not say a Vegan diet either. So what […]
