There’s no better place to spend 4th of July weekend then at the beach! Whenever I plan a trip to the beach, I make sure to pack lots of healthy snacks. It saves money and I can feel confident lying on the beach in my bikini having had healthy, wholesome food. Here are a few of the items on this… Read More
This holiday weekend, remember the 90/10 rule: 90 percent of the time, eat wholesome, healthy food and 10 percent of the time, indulge in the foods you love. Long summer weekends spent with family and friends are the perfect times to practice this rule. My favorite summer indulgence this weekend: Margaritas, of course. Ole!
Summer is here and that means outdoor Farmer’s Market and the 2010 World Cup! My weekend was jam-packed with both. David returned from a week-long business trip to South America early Saturday morning so after breakfast, we headed over to the Tribeca GreenMarket. Few things make me happier than strolling fruit and vegetable stands for local, seasonal fare. We picked… Read More
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I LOVE smoothies – especially in the heat of Summer! Satisfying and filling, they are my go-to, never-fail breakfast and snack of choice. As long as they are they aren’t of the Jamba Juice/sugary, pre-made mix variety, smoothies are nourishing, convenient and fun to make. After relying on green smoothies for… Read More

If Day 1 was difficult, Day 3 was my most umcomfortable day on the cleanse. It didn’t help that work chose Day 3 to order in ‘witchcraft sandwiches and Magnolia Bakery cupcakes. But more than that, I had taken an herbal laxative on Night 2 (in lieu of the suggested colonic recommended on a cleanse) which caused terrible stomach cramping…. Read More
Day 2 of the lovely spring cleanse has come and gone and it seems it took the spring weather with it! I mentioned in my Day 1 post that I felt hungry all day. While the hunger has subsided a bit and I’ve gotten used to an empty stomach, the feeling is still there. It can be good to understand… Read More

I totally OD’d on chocolate last night. As a health and wellness coach, that’s not at the top of my list of recommendations. But this wasn’t any old chocolate. This was organic, raw, vegan, sugar-and-gluten-free chocolate. I never thought so many of my favorite qualities could be combined into one food item — especially chocolate!
