Nutrition CHAMPS Cookbook Giveaway!

I was so happy when I heard that my dear friend, Jill Nussinow, said that she was writing a new cookbook. Jill goes by the name The Veggie Queen, which is totally apt!

Jill is a Registered Dietitian, and is a wonderful chef who does full justice to the amazingly healthy array of whole plant foods out there.


One Pot Meal Ideas

One pot meals: less dishes, limit overeating, simplify meals

A lot of my meals are made in one pot, for many reasons. The most obvious is that it keeps dishes at a minimum, since it only uses one pot.

Having one dish means that your tastebuds are satisfied with less food than if you have lots of different flavors on your plate. Think of Thanksgiving dinner, and tons of side dishes, and how you need to eat just enough of each one to feel satisfied - even though you're overstuffed.

One pot meals keep things simple in terms of time spent making a meal, and also in terms keeping your evening meal a bit lighter for easier digestion before bed.


Everything You Want To Know About Pressure Cooking! Live Q&A with JL Fields

Everything You Want To Know About Pressure Cooking! Live video Q&A with JL Fields

I am SO excited to finally be hosting a live q&a with JL Fields!

See, I bought a pressure cooker a few months ago because I was sick of buying canned beans, but I didn't want to use up a couple hours worth of gas or electricity cooking them on the stove.

Unfortunately, I had a few mishaps in trying it out and lost motivation. I know that JL is a pro with her pressure cooker (literally, she just published a book called Vegan Pressure Cooking) so I wanted to ask her for some tips.

I'm thrilled to be hosting a live q&a with Ricki Heller, who is the go-to gal for info and recipes to help beat candida as a vegan.

Fighting Flu Season...

Fighting flu season with natural methods

This year, my mom caught a really vicious strain of the flu. She's starting to recover, but asked me for my advice to help get better more quickly.

I sent her an email with my thoughts, and then realized it would probably be helpful to some of you, too!

So I'm sharing what I told her - in exchange, please send my mom your positive thoughts so that she heals quickly :)


Happy New Year! Let's help motivate each other :)

Happy New Year! What can we help work through together?

It's a new year, and it's also my birthday this weekend! I have a drink in mind for that (tropical sangria!!!), but my trip to the dentist earlier this week gave me a kick in the butt...

I'm normally really good about it, I swear! But the holidays and travelling made me somewhat lazy on tooth care. There was nothing serious, just a bit of plaque on the back molars.

So - my dental hygienist inspired me to get back on track with flossing and brushing regularly! I only have one set of teeth and I plan to keep them around...


My Week Of Coffee: Benefits + Downsides

Coffee week - looking at the benefits and downsides of coffee

About a year ago, I decided to try a cup of coffee. I have so many clients ask me how to overcome caffeine/coffee addictions and I try to give recommendations, but I always feel like I'm not being fully empathetic, so I decided the only thing to do was try it to see what they enjoyed about it.

The thing is, I've never liked coffee. I'm a tea kinda girl. The first time I tried it was a hotel coffee maker, and it was the most terrible thing I'd ever had. Since then, I just had no interest in trying to like it.

As a nutritionist, I'm very aware of the downsides of coffee as a stimulant. I am, however, also aware of the health benefits of coffee. Since it's not something that's downright unhealthy for me (like Coke), I felt really curious to see if it could actually be helpful in terms of boosting energy levels.


Come On A Beach Run With Me!

My favorite running route, and what I eat before and after a run

I wanted to share my favorite running route with you - along the beach in Bermuda. There's a trail through the trees and grass that winds along some cliffs above the ocean, so there are some gorgeous views.

I also wanted to share what I eat before and after a run. Not that it's perfect for everyone, it's just what works best for me.
