Let It Be Treat and Not Trick!

The witching hour is almost here, little goblins may soon grace your doorway, and the holidays are just around the bend!  It is a special and exciting time, but it can sometimes cause us to get on the wrong path with our eating habits. Just one little treat from the Halloween basket and the trip down the path to eating 2 months of sugary foods suddenly begins.  Many of us have been there and done that, and as tasty as holiday tidings are, they leave us feeling a little less on track with our goals than we'd like. That's when the resolution making begins.  Sound vaguely familiar?  But what if I told you that there is a different path you can travel over these next few wonderful, busy and tasty months?  You can choose a new path and still enjoy every bit of the holiday season.    Read More

Tips for Clean Eating

The holidays are over and the new year is among us.  A special and exciting time where we make ambitious plans for our next twelve months and dream of the possibilities.  The most popular resolution is improving health, and we usually are quite ready after the holidays.  As tasty as the holiday tidings are, they leave us feeling a little less on track with our goals than we'd like.  Those new healthy resolutions don't have to be complicated, and they don't have to end before February even arrives.  The key to looking and feeling your best is to keep it uncomplicated and simply focus on clean eating.  Read More

Setting the Stage for Success

YOU have decided to make some lifestyle changes in order to live a healthier and more balanced life.  You are excited because being healthy and balanced will allow you to live your life the way it is meant to be lived.  And you know that the world needs the gifts and talents that only you can give. However, those of us who have struggled with weight, low energy levels or being consistent about exercise know all to well that we decide to make changes, jump out of the gate and run out of steam before we make any real progress.  Then feeling defeated and guilty we go back those old habits.  Let this time be different.  Read More

On the Road Again

One of the questions that came through on the Health Coaching Survey that was in my newsletter last month was about eating healthy while on the road.  We all know what happens during those long summer road trips.  Snacking, snacking and more snacking.  And while we start with every intention of avoiding those sweet sugary foods, salty treats and carb loaded snacks, during that quick trip to the grocery store just before our trip those convenient looking snack packs grab us and our wallets before we know what happened.  Read More

Everyone Should Raise a Little Kale Now and Then

This year the end of winter and beginning of spring had a bit of a tug of war. The bickering between the seasons prolonged the kale harvest which was a bit of a gift. However, last week with the kale beginning bolt, I knew that I had to harvest the leaves and begin the preserving process. Read More

Fire Cider and the Health Coach

Lately I have been bumping into Fire Cider. Articles and recipes seemed to be popping up around me. Each time Fire Cider appeared on my radar, I admit I brushed it aside. However, when "Fire Cider Tonic" appeared in an issue of a Martha Stewart magazine that my mom had sent my way, I figured that fate was getting annoyed with my blatant disregard and was giving me a "dope slap". It was time to take notice. Read More

Pushing the Gardening Envelope

Last fall we decided to try to grow greens all winter. We had both successes and failures. Kale, spinach and daikon radishes did well. Kohlrabi, beets, broccoli rabe and arugula did not fair well. Most likely the veggies that did not thrive struggled because of sowing seeds too late. We did not sow seed until mid/late September. This year we decided to get an earlier start, late August, and added a new comer to the fall/winter garden — saffron. Yes, you are reading correctly, we decided to try to grow and harvest our own saffron — that wonderful spice of delicate red threads that adds flavor to breads, rice and so many other dishes.

What Did the Apple Say to the Butternut Squash?

Tonight I was at a loss about what to make for dinner. And once again I decided rely on my typical method of searching the kitchen for ingredients to throw together. As I looked around the kitchen I found the perfect partners for dinner -- Read More

When Two Negatives Do Not Equal a Positive

Exercise is a word that invokes many emotions, not all of them positive. While some folks get downright giddy at the thought of their daily exercise routine and pack their gym bags the night before, for many of us the thought of exercise causes stomach churning anxiety and any excuse to avoid moving is deftly utilized. Just like momma, poppa and baby bear, we find ourselves waiting for the perfect moment to exercise. If it is too hot, too cold, too humid, too early, too late, too soon after eating or too soon after waking, we delay getting up and moving and settle back down onto our built in glutial cushion. We soon discover that the time to get up and move is never “just right” for us. Read More
