When we talk about healthy lifestyles we sometimes forget that there are aspects that are a luxury, while some things may be argued for as an investment, other things may also be described as a luxury. For me a gym membership is an investment, but having one is a luxury for others. When it comes […]
Last year I was talking with a friend about health coaching and how I work with clients. We talked a lot about the mental health aspect of health and I said it was important to help them navigate some of the tough questions and then refer when things go out of your scope. She told […]
We’ve talked before about the purpose of organic – it’s about community health, not consumer health. However, lower pesticide use or utilization of different pesticides doesn’t mean that bacteria is non-existent.
Rinsing can help eliminate debris from produce and some bacteria, but a vinegar solution may be more effective for certain kinds of bacteria.
I had this whole post planned out. I wrote about 800 words and then deleted most of it. So. Tomorrow’s June. I don’t know where spring went, but I’m really looking forward to gin and tonics and sun and corn on the cob and Kansas City. It’s the end of day 92 into prepping for […]
Raise your hand if you’ve ever seen someone or you yourself have ever consumed a protein shake post-workout as fast as possible like your life depended on it? All of our hands should be up. Or at least most of us. This was something I truly believed seven years ago when I first got started […]

I know that what I’m about to talk about isn’t a privilege for everyone for one reason or another. It’s not lost on me when I talk about mental […]
“Health: As officially defined by the World Health Organization, a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Since coming back on Instagram one thing I’ve noticed more – and it could just be the strength in the voice – is how more people are talking about […]
Post-Easter, post-carrot cake – I’m now just trying to find places to put the left over carrots. Carrots are one of those vegetables that I’ll eat if it’s on a platter at a party, but I don’t necessarily go out of my way to buy them often. Pre-carrot cake, I used some for waffles. You […]
I’ve talked about this idea a few times, but I don’t think it ever hurts to revisit it. “I could tell you my adventures – beginning from this morning,” Alice said a little timidly; “but it’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” I love this quote so much, […]
