Thankful for Thanksgiving

What’s your favorite holiday? Mine is Thanksgiving. Why? Simply because it’s just about food, family, friends, and fun (OK fine..football too). There are no religious aspects or gift requirements, just gathering to spend quality time and cozy up over comfort food and cocktails.  However, around this time, many of my clients begin to worry about overindulging as the holiday season …

Seasonal Favorites and Emotional Eating

Fall is usually one of my favorite seasons – back to school, back to routine.  But this year like many of you I have found myself searching for comfort in response to the horrific events occurring in our world today.

Does Collagen Count as a Complete Protein?

I love Dr. Gabrielle Lyons, but I don’t agree collagen has a protein score of zero. Yes, I understand why she says this because it’s lacking an essential amino acid: tryptophan. But here’s the good news, you can easily make an incomplete protein into a complete protein by consuming foods that contain the missing amino acid(s) at any point in …

When You Don’t Need to Worry About Buying Organic

When it comes to eating organic fruits and vegetables, if you can afford it, it is very important to buy certain things that are organic.

But fruits that we don’t …

Summer is officially over and most of us are back to the office, back to school, and back to reality.

Yes, you should spoil your appetite before you go out to dinner.

So, I posted a video that got more than 60,000 views on TikTok last week! This one I’m not just telling you this because it makes me look really cool to my teenage boys, it’s because clearly, this topic hit a nerve. Should you eat before going out to eat? Yes, you should! A small snack of protein and fiber …

Which Supplements Should You Take For Better Health?

When it comes to supplements, everybody’s really individualized and based on how much nutrition you have in your diet. What I usually recommend for my clients is most people don’t eat enough seafood, so, therefore, they’re low in omega-3s.  There are two different types of omega-3s that you can buy…some come from fish, but some now come from algae, and …
