How to healthfully manage holiday eating is coming up in literally ALL of my client and group program calls this month! So I thought I would share some of my top strategies for holiday eating that help you enjoy the festive season without putting your body through the ringer. Follow the 80/20 rule (which may look more like 70/30 this time of year). This is my favorite approach to moderation with all things. Stay on your healthy eating game 80% of the time, which gives you way more flexibility with the remaining 20%. On days when you’re not partying, fill up on brightly colored veggies, lean ..read more

I finally broke down and got my first cold of the season last week, and though it thankfully only lasted two days, my poor hubby caught it and has been suffering for a good 4+ days. In an attempt to make him something comforting and immunity boosting, while making use of the relatively meager contents of our fridge, I concocted the following super healthy dinner salad for him. Low and behold, today he’s on the mend!  This recipe is a perfect example of how we can use food as medicine.  There are more essential vitamins, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients in this salad than ..read more

Photo by Kate Hauschka Ahhhh, it’s that special time of year again… when the weather starts to warm and we take stock of the effects the winter and the last year in general had on our bodies and start to panic scroll Google for quick fix diets and detoxes to start the new season fresh and finally reach all those pesky health and weight loss goals we’ve been striving for since… well… since forever. It’s all a bit exhausting, isn’t it? I know, I’ve been there too. This time of year, my client load in my holistic nutrition practice literally doubles as people feel that desperate need to start the ..read more

I don’t know about you, but this past year and a half of COVID parenting has turned me into mean mommy. Gone are my endless stores of patience for the tantrums and messes and snark. Gone is my happy-go-lucky, go-with-the-flow, find-humor-in-the-chaos mentality (insofar as I ever had one). No, sadly, I have not yet recovered from being stuck at home for 18 months with a toddler and kindergartener, from the Zoom school, and lack of help and 12 straight hours a day of momming. Things may be better now — one kid is back to full-time in-person school and the other has a little toddler class a few ..read more

The Safest, Most Effective Cleaning Product I’ve Found

What with the world descending into madness over the last year and a half, my search for the ultimate in safe cleaning and disinfecting reached an unprecedented fervor. Back in the spring of 2020, when we were disinfecting our groceries and the bottoms of our shoes, finding a natural cleaning product that was effective at killing everything while still being safe enough to use around our precious babies was of the utmost importance. And that’s when I discovered Force of Nature, which, I kid you not, is pure MAGIC. It’s super safe. This brilliant work of chemical wizardry uses little pods fill ..read more

Why Some Women Lose Weight While Breastfeeding and Others Don’t

After having my first baby, I was so proud of my body for bouncing back pretty quickly. I never quite got my pre-baby abs back, but my body shed about 20 pounds within a few weeks of giving birth, and lost most of the rest within about 6 months (honestly, I don’t know exactly because I don’t own a scale!). I nursed my daughter for a little over two years, and was one of those happy breastfeeding cases — I just breastfed myself back to my former body! (Read about my journey the first time around) Five years later, the second time has been quite different. Though I’m doing everything the same a ..read more

How to Boost Your Kids’ Immunity and Keep Them Healthy Year Round (Especially Now)

I’ve had this article sitting in my drafts for a while, and figured now is the perfect time to finish it up. Obviously, these recommendations are useful for the whole year, but I think focusing on them right now during the COVID-19 pandemic is especially important. Have you noticed that kids tend to be little mucous making machines?  Runny noses seem to be just par for the course in childhood, and once they start school, they seem to jump from one illness to another the whole year round. With the current lockdown many of us have been under for the last 6 months, you may have noticed that ..read more

This time of year, and especially with the COVID-19 craziness going on, elderberry is one of my top supplements for the whole family to boost immunity and stave off illness. Elderberries are loaded with antioxidants and vitamins that can decrease inflammation, boost immunity, decrease stress, and have heart benefits to boot! If you have access to dried elderberries in bulk, making your own syrup can be an easy and economical way to stay stocked up with elderberries for the whole season. I have my whole family on elderberries (either in syrup or supplement form) through the entire cold season ..read more
