September Squeeze Week

I have such a low threshold for being “selly”. I unfollow people who are constantly pushing their seminars and books and just repeating themselves. I think it has probably hurt my business that I cannot sell, sell, sell.  I have even realized that sometimes people...

Sorry Karin Michels, Coconut Oil Isn’t Poison

  The first time I heard about the video claiming “Coconut Oil is Poison”, I dismissed it as attention seeking clickbait. As the video, because of the crazy headline, gained traction we decided to clarify our stance on coconut oil. Oh, and If you click on the link to...

Starbucks new plant-based sugar bomb

My inbox was buzzing with Starbucks news. Starbucks, it seems, launched blended plant-based, protein, coffee drinks. I have yet to try these drinks, for reasons enumerated below, but I hear they are a blend of coffee, rice and pea proteins and nut milk. One flavor...

If dinner is your largest meal, are you screwed?

Our tagline is “we’re not going to make you change your lifestyle to fit our food plans our food plans will fit your lifestyle” It’s on our homepage something I take seriously. After all, I have a lifestyle (travelstyle, cocktailstyle) too. With that being said, we...

How many carbs is too many

I had the first follow-up session with a client yesterday. In our initial meeting, I learned that this client already exercised, took a nice assortment of supplements and was already going to great lengths, successfully, to be healthy. His problem was he wasn’t losing...

Fake is real and real is fake

The world is fucked up. I’m not talking politics. Last night, we had dinner at Catch, here in LA. We’re traveling with 2 teens so some of the hip and cool scene-y places we’ve been to are not what Marc and I would choose on our own. Anyway, the entrance to this...

How to Make the Perfect Smoothie

I have been a smoothie lover for a long time. My smoothie love started with Angel Food Cake at Smoothie King in New Orleans, when I was in college (don’t judge, it was better than froyo). It was a strawberry, banana mixture with a little vanilla. I’m not really sure...

Foodtrainers’ Healthy Austin, TX Guide

Lauren and I hit Austin TX for the PaleoFX conference last month. We have gotten expert-level at exploring new(ish) cities together (or apart - see London, Nashville), and it doesn’t hurt that we both love all things tex-mex. Austin is the coolest – from avocado...

We’re all fucked up and that’s ok

I love the book/ platform I Quit Sugar*. Sarah Wilson, who wrote the books, has built quite a brand. I don’t know Sarah personally (I guest posted for them when my book came out) but she always seemed like a badass with a great sense of humor. She bikes to work, in...

Should I brag more?

How to avoid eating your feelings

I just had a session with a longtime client. She recapped a couple of weeks where her stress was unusually high, higher than the family/work juggle many of us attempt. After she summarized what had been happening, I agreed with her, “that’s a lot, I totally get it.”...

Healthier in the Bedroom

It’s been almost a month in our new apartment. If you’re on Insta, you may recall the move was emotional for me. Our kids grew up in the old apartment and we had renovated every inch of it ourselves. What’s strange is that the second we moved, I was fine. It’s as...

Top 10 tips from PaleoFx

Carolyn and I just got back from Austin where we checked out the Paleofx conference, for the first time. Carolyn had been before but I also checked out Austin for the first time. I can't say which was the bigger draw for me but we enjoyed both. While it’s fresh in my...

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...

Bobbi Brown just launched a new website called Just Bobbi. Here is a post I wrote for the site on my top 5 supplements to take. Can you guess the 5? Click link to find out why I'm anti multi vitamins as well. The site is great....

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...

Three tips to make Spring break healthier

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....
