Do I ignore the alcohol research?

Friday night, the sun was streaming in our windows. We just moved and this whole light-filled space thing is new for us. I asked Marc if he wanted me to make him a drink. “Sure” he said, as he always does. In the book I just finished, it talks about one partner...

Your Healthy-ish Nashville Guide

A few weeks ago I went to Nashville for a friends birthday and was blown away by the good food, music (of course) and weather. I actually have a crush on Nash and have to share my hits with you. Of course, with only 2 days there, I cannot personally vouch for all of...

What’s the deal with Oat Milk? And all our fave milks

Milk has become confusing. A few years ago, you'd be hard pressed to find anything besides soy for a nondairy milk option. Now, it's safe to say you will have choices to make, in the plant-based milk department, at any coffee shop. We are fielding a lot of questions...

Is your mattress killing you and do you care

As we prepare to move (hard to even type those words, denial is real), I am trying to take the opportunity to upgrade household items to ecofriendly alternatives. For example, we need a new mattress. I have strong feelings on many topics but mattresses aren’t one of...

Our March, Monthly Morsels newsletter highlighted healthy travel options (we have a pretty new design happening too). The week before a trip, at least in my house, can be crazy making. The teacher's cram in tests and papers , I try to see as many clients as I can, to...

I don’t always “love my body”

Last night, while I was watching the Bachelor ATFR, scrolling through Instagram and eating my Natural Calm Gummies, just to assure you my life is riveting, something caught my attention. It wasn't Arie, proposing to bachelorette #2 minutes after admitting he rushed...

I’m sorry, if my post offended you

I used to blog regularly. It's such a rewarding way to interact with readers. Some posts were lighthearted and others more "weighty". I had a good handle when a topic was one that could push buttons and I've never shied away from button-pushing. I don't post as often...

Friday Food News (boring title, oh well)

I am not one of those people who posts sick selfies and photos from medical appointments. It’s not that I’m above that. It’s more that a) when I’m sick I don’t have energy to curate my illness and b) I try to carry on with normal life as much as possible. Anyway, I...

I binge-watched Khloe Kardashian’s Revenge Body

When I was a grad student at NYU, Joy Bauer came to give a talk about nutrition counseling. One thing she discussed stuck with me.  She said, “read everything from scientific journals to the tabloids.” Her point was to familiarize yourself with everything your future...

Foodtrainers’ Non-Religious Lent, take… 7!

Fun fact, Lauren and I met over Twitter! Non-religious Lent (don’t worry, I’ll explain) is technically our “anniversary”. I dug out our first interaction.   I neglected to mention I missed the yoga class. By the time I went back down and back up again, I was too...

When it comes to wellness, can we all lighten up?

As you might have gathered, from yesterday’s TV post, I’m not that deep. I should clarify, I’m not outwardly deep or woo woo. Most inspirational quotes, not all, get an inner or actual eye roll from me. My preferred method of communication is humor. I have learned,...

Minimalism via Bravo’s “Stripped”

I have lowbrow TV taste. I eat quality food, drink tippy top-shelf spirits and read good books, not War and Peace but still. However, TV is my junk food. I watch the Bachelor, Housewives and Dateline. And as of this weekend, I have a new show I’m into, Stripped....

No Megan Kelly, nobody needs to be fat-shamed ever.

Where to begin with this one? Megyn Kelly was interviewing Maria Kang. Remember Maria? A few years back, she was in the bikini with her babies and the “what’s your excuse” caption that made every mom/woman in America hate her?Megyn, in a discussion about fat shaming...

Foodtrainers’ Healthy London Guide

For winter break, my family and I were in Manchester and London. For my sons and husband (my 3 “boys”) the focus was football. As for me, I’m always looking ways to up the healthy ante while away. I haven’t been to London in a few years and the wellness scene really...

I’m the opposite of Shonda Rimes.

I read Shonda Rimes’ The Year of Yes when it first came out. It made the bookshelf cut, reserved for books that moved me (I say YES to purging, whenever possible). As much as I related to it at the time, I must’ve forgotten the key messages. When Carolyn suggested...

Bad moms and wine moms

There’s a bit of a brouhaha over the recent Bad Mom’s Christmas movie. I haven’t seen the movie, though I watched the first one. The issue being debated is this concept of a “wine mom” and the coupling of motherhood and alcohol. Is this an innocuous combination?  Or...

We hate to be the Pill police, but…

You know us, we love to keep it light. We’d much rather be writing about matcha or mushrooms, but today we have to get the word out about the Pill. Even if you’re not taking the birth control pill, chances are your partner, daughter, sister, or several people close to...

OUR ELITE TREATS

Clients are already sharing scary accounts of being ensnared in Halloween candy’s web. Perhaps you’d expect our advice to be “NO CANDY”. But that’s not how we roll. It’s more like “don’t waste your treat on candy that’s crappy, inflammation causing or carcinogenic”......
