What We Eat Matters

So I did a Periscope video today called “What We Eat Matters: why you can’t out-supplement a poor diet,” but there was some technical issues. The video is in 3 parts below because my phone died twice during my scope and the beginning of the video didn’t get saved for some reason. So there’s that. You can watch my thoughts below:   Have a question? Leave it in the comments!

And I traveled there alone – literally didn’t bring a friend or family member. People…

Health Goals? Here’s How to Achieve Them

Do you make health goals each new year? Some people don’t like the idea of new years resolutions because “why wait for the new year to make changes? You can change at any time.” While I do agree with this, I also think the new year is a great time to make changes. The start of a new year brings a sense of renewal and a fresh start. We get to put the past behind us and choose to make the…

My Favorite Uses For Coconut Oil

Uses For Coconut Oil Coconut oil has blown up in popularity lately – as a superfood – and as a super versatile, use-it-for-everything miracle oil. I’m sure you’ve seen this meme before: While I probably wouldn’t call it a “miracle oil” (I mean it’s not like it’s going to bring the perfect man to your doorstep or anything), coconut oil is extremely versatile. I buy it in 2 packs of big jars from Amazon to save money.   These are…

Giving & receiving gifts, holiday parties, spending time with friends & family, and of course when I was a kid, believing in Santa made Christmas the most fun & exciting holiday there was. As great as it is, the season of gift-giving can be super stressful and have a negative impact on health. Many of us put exercise on the back burner, stress…

Let’s Talk About Macronutrients

There’s so much debate about macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, and fat) and how much of each we should be eating. Some swear by low-carb and ketogenic diets. Some say low-fat is the way to go. There are high-protein diets, high-carb diets, high-fat diets – so which one is correct? I’ll let you in on a little secret (okay it’s not really a secret), the answer is none of them. There are no perfect macronutrient ratios that are right for everyone. We…
