All About Apple Cider Vinegar

I hate when products I love are really expensive.  It adds to this misconception that eating healthy and holistically is unattainable.  Of course, some things are not super budget friendly and I get that, so I’m always looking for products that can change your life without emptying your wallet.  Apple Cider Vinegar is absolutely one […]

Totally Turmeric

I was checking out at Whole Foods the other day, when the cashier stopped aghast at my fresh turmeric purchase. Apparently, those little orange nubs are not a popular item.  I found this particularly funny because the recipe I was buying the turmeric for included a little note: “usually near the ginger, looks like little […]

Dairy-Free February

It’s time to cut the cheese. Dairy products are the first thing I tell my clients to throw out. There are virtually no benefits (yes, you can get calcium elsewhere) and there are a plethora of bad side effects. From acne-covered skin to serious disease, dairy products are bad news. I’ve decided to host Dairy-Free […]

I hear it all the time- “I’m […]

Eat Away Your Pain

My fiance’s son came home from college a few days ago eager to enjoy his holiday vacation.  One of his first activities was to shoot some hoops with some of his high school friends.  He was just a few hours into his fun-packed vacation plans when he got a bad sprain in his foot while […]

Double Down on Dopamine

My assistant keeps reminding me that this weather is nothing compared the Chicago winters she left, but even with this sunshine, the days are still getting shorter and the nights are still getting colder.  Winter means a break from sweltering hot days but it can also mean some of us get hit with wintertime blues.

‘Tis the Season to Cleanse

I know it’s tempting to just give into the many splurges of the holidays and commit to getting healthy when the rest of the world does it on January 1st.  Yet, now is actually the best time to cleanse.  Instead of treating yourself with cookies and stuffing, treat your body with a delicous and detoxifying […]

Happy Thanksgiving To My Wonderful Readers!

It’s that time of year, when we all turn to ask each other to give thanks for our blessings. I really loved this video from Marie Forleo about the “Downside of Gratitude”.
