Is Drinking Apple Cider Vinegar Really That Good for You?

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailThe American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) has debunked the theory that following an alkaline diet can improve your health and reduce your risk for cancer, stating, “What you eat can have a profound affect on your cancer risk, but the acidity or alkalinity of foods is not important. Instead, focus on making dietary choices that can truly affect your risk.” The AICR has launched a campaign to hep bust common myths and present science-based facts about cancer prevention. (link) As the recipient of numerous publicists’ pitches on the benefits of an alkaline diet, risks of high acid in […]

Just Because It’s Good for You Doesn’t Mean It’s Right for You

good for you

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailI am pitched on a range of products and protocols that are intended to be good for you. They claim to improve your health and well-being. I keep an open mind, but I always peer into the science behind the statements. I question, “How does this work for women of all ages and backgrounds and when does it not appropriate for someone?” I’ve been schooled in the “not one diet fits all” theory of healthy eating. There are general guidelines to follow: eat more plants, leaner protein, and better fats; consume less sugar and simple carbohydrates; avoid processed foods; […]

Vegetables for breakfast. Why not?

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailI like savory breakfasts. I’m not talking about bacon, sausage and eggs. I like vegetables for breakfast- sautéed mushrooms and spinach with a poached or hard boiled egg, roasted beets in my Greek yogurt, warmed-up leftover vegetables over toast, or kale or spinach smoothies with berries. I even like a cup of vegetable soup for breakfast. My physician recently informed me my blood sugar and cholesterol levels are slightly elevated. I know this means further editing to my diet, moving more and keeping stress levels in check. The start of the day is a great place to start. Various studies have shown the benefits of eating […]

Just Chew It! Digest These Tips

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailLet’s face it. We’re all going to over-indulge this Thanksgiving. It’s the national day of giving thanks and stuffing….your mouth. Rather than ruminate over calories, just try to adjust the quantity of what you eat and enjoy more leftovers for the weekend. Consider hosting a Thanksgiving leftovers potluck party and invite friends to bring over theirs. Or, freeze leftovers and reuse later in the winter. My husband is actually un-thawing last year’s Thanksgiving mashed potatoes and stuffing as I write this. It’s just us two this year at the table, so we are having a hybrid “Thawsgiving” combined with […]

Probiotics Versus Enzymes: Digesting the Difference

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailMany women experience digestive issues during different times of their lives. Taking birth control pills or antibiotics, dealing with chronic stress, alcohol consumption, lack of sleep and an imbalanced diet are just a few reasons. You may have read or heard about the benefits of taking probiotics and enzymes for your digestive health. But do you know the difference? Here is a short explanation. Probiotics are living bacteria that the human body needs but does not produce. Probiotics help support your digestive system to help it function properly.  Since the human body does not produce probiotics, you need to […]

Don’t be Blindsided  Because You Lack Long-Term Vision

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailSometimes we’re so busy moving through life just getting the work done in front of us that we don’t see what lies ahead. Long-term vision is important to help you reach your life or career goals, but too often we’re wearing blinders. So, what happens? You can get blindsided. You wake up one day and realize time slipped away and you are further from where you hoped to be. Maybe you find your career has languished, or a relationship falters, or finances are stagnant. Whatever it is, you wonder, “can I ever get back on track?” Of course, you […]

Want to Change Your Life? Change Your Habits

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemail The main reason diets don’t work is people don’t stick to them. It’s a commitment. Your relationship to food is more than about what you eat. It’s emotional. Many of us eat and drink to nurture our spirit as much as to nourish our bodies. Maybe it’s time to change your behavior and not just your diet. That’s one of the many messages from Dr. Deena Solomon, who tackles weight loss from a cognitive behavioral perspective- aka “retrain the brain.” www.drdeenasolomon.com Dr. Solomon says, “While others view food as an addiction, and overeating as a disease that must be cured, I […]

Why It’s Important To Speak Out

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailThe only thing as disturbing as a voice that had been silenced is one that refuses to speak out.  Apathy is even worse than acrimony. Because apathy is about being indifferent versus helping to make a difference. Last week was Equal Pay Day. The date, April 10, was significant because that is the date in 2018 it would take for women’s earnings to finally catch up with what men earn. Women still make around 80 cents on the dollar to men and about $10,000 less in annual salaries. But don’t just blame the system. Too often we just let it happen by not speaking […]

Three Simple Words for the New Year: Mindful, Purpose, Passion

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailThree words to live by to stay vibrant and young in spirit: Mindful, Passion, and Purpose. These are also three words to start your New Year with a New Attitude. Mindful is about being “in the present” and focused on the here and now rather than the “when and what for?” Passion is the spiritual and emotional energy that will help propel you. Passion can be positive energy or negative energy depending on how you channel it. Hopefully positive. Purpose is your intention. I call it you you “Why?” As in “Why” do you want to make something happen? What is […]
