Introducing Foodtrainers Everything Pills

Our clients don’t leave sessions with a boatload of vitamins. Instead, we pick and choose the supplements that we feel are necessary for that person. This year, we made the leap to private label on some of our Foodtrainers’ faves. There are our Chill Pills (for mood...

Nonreligious Lent Take 8

Carolyn and I were brought together by Lent. I noticed that nothing helped clients adhere to a rule like they did during Lent. Truthfully, having not grown up with Lent, or even really knowing what it was, I was jealous of their resolve. And so Foodtrainers'...

So Celery is a Celebrity? Celery Juice 101

When my book came out, I made the mistake of reading the online comments.  I cannot recall t the multiple, positive reviews. Of course, I remember one commenter calling my recommendations elitist, for suggesting wild salmon and pricey kombucha. Well, this person would...

What to eat after antibiotics

My husband takes Advil like candy (and I’ll let you guess how much he listens to my warnings). I, on the other hand, don’t like to take any medicine. I was one of those ear infection kids, I don’t remember ever leaving the pediatrician without a script for bubble...

What’s for dinner? TBD is not the best answer.

One of the tenets of Foodtraining is that planning eclipses willpower (can’t use the word trump anymore, for obvious reasons). Oftentimes in sessions, in order to gauge a client’s planning, I’ll ask “what’s for dinner tonight?” It is the first week back, for many...

The secret to weight loss (or one of them)

  Earlier in the year, my older son came home complaining his bio teacher’s tests were difficult. Whether you’re a parent or not, you likely know what I said to him. “Meet with your teacher, figure out how to approach the tests, just keep working hard.” Another...

It’s a holiday, eat whatever you want? Nope.

Thanksgiving Eve. Like many of you (and sorry if you’re not), I’m off today. Yesterday, Grace was busy sending out Shop Foodtrainers packages, I had two jam-packed client days. It always seems frenetic pre-holiday. Last night, I was relaxing, finishing up my first...

5 ingredients to make salad exciting

  In most cases, when people say they don't like a certain food, it's because they haven't had a good version of that food. This is definitely the case with salad. If, in your mind, salad means a pile of ho-hum lettuce with bottled dressing, you haven't had...

What we cooked/watched/read (this weekend, Nov 2)

We’re back again with our weekend round up! As Lauren said last week, we love comparing notes on what we did over the weekend – although if we’re being honest, we’re usually in touch fri through sun too. So here is this weekend’s experimentation. What we Cooked:...

Portions on food labels, can we discuss?

We receive a ton of food product samples. As we suggest to clients, we first look at the ingredients. If there are artificial dyes or artificial sweeteners, soy, too much sugar or other shady things listed, we’re giving it to the doormen (is this mean to give them our...

Some suggestions for this scary time

I have a new feature for Mondays, on the blog, but I’m going to save that for tomorrow. I know this is a nutrition blog but our focus, at Foodtrainers, is on wellness. And it’s hard to feel well with what’s going on. On Saturday, hibernating from the nor’easter that...

Halloween candy for adults

Halloween is around the corner. And while you definitely want to steer clear of the standard "fun size" junk, it's natural to want a little something sweet. We didn't realize how popular our Natural Calm gummies were, until they tragically went out of stock.  If you...

Solutions for Stress Eating

I had a session yesterday, with a client in the midst of a very busy stretch at work. For this post, I’ll call her “Busy”. Busy described being overscheduled, under rested and working around the clock. “At the end of the day, I feel I deserve a treat.” This is what...

Why “small frequent meals” is bullshit

A lot of nutrition advice involves a kernel of truth and a lot of exaggeration. Let’s take “eat small, frequent meals.” The reasoning goes something like this, each time you eat, your metabolism is stoked. The scientific term is the thermic effect of food. The problem...

Red Table Talk & Body Image

If you ask me what I did this weekend, I could say I saw my high school friends, went for a couple of brisk runs (brisk meaning chilly not fast) and went to the farmer’s market. But what I really did was binge-watch the first season of Red Table Talk. If you’re...

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...

How many carbs is too many
