  • What are healthy fats… Clear up the confusion.

    Healthy Fats and Dangerous Fats All fat is NOT created equal! Fat is one of the three critical macronutrients; along with protein and carbohydrates. Some fats are super-health-boosting; and, others are super-health-busting.  Health-building fats support your brain, hormones, immune system, heart health, and moods. Health-busting fats pretty much bust all of these (brain, hormones, immune system, heart health, and moods). So, this is why the information I’m sharing today is so important. As a general rule, the fats from whole foods that are the least processed will be the healthiest for you. But, you already knew that, right? So let me give you a definitive list of the fats to…

Perhaps your stomach is empty, your blood sugar has dropped, and your hunger hormones are having a party. But other times, the hunger may not be physical hunger.

I'm not talking about anaphylaxis or immediate allergic reactions that involve an immune response. Those can be serious and life-threatening.  If you have any allergies, you need to steer clear of any traces of foods you are allergic to, and speak with your doctor or pharmacist about emergency medication, if necessary.    What I'm talking about, is an intolerance, meaning you do not tolerate a specific food very well and it causes immediate or chronic symptoms anywhere in the body.

  • Bone Broth – All It’s Cracked Up to Be?

    Bone Broth - All It’s Cracked Up to Be? Remember when Grandma would always have a big pot of broth or stock simmering, filling the kitchen with the enchanting aroma of chicken soup? Well, move over dehydrating, overstimulating afternoon coffee – because there’s a new “addiction” in town! Not only does a cup of hot broth provide a good “warmth factor”, but when prepared through simple old school, traditional cooking, you’ll not only be amply hydrated but well-nourished with many valuable minerals and a hefty dose of high-quality protein - thanks to its rich amino acid profile. You can see why it’s now become a staple in both the Paleo-…
