Raw Milk – Take a look!

I’m in the middle of a meeting so today will be a short one. Have you ever tried raw milk? There’s little mention about it in the mainstream, however the benefits are amazing.

Danger, danger! Step away from the scale

You have decided to take on a new lifestyle incorporating physical exercise and a healthy diet, partly because you enjoy this new lifestyle and partly because you want to see results.

Paleo Faux Pas

After a few days of reaping the benefits of a Paleo lifestyle I decided to splurge on a birthday lunch, thinking how bad can it be? I will eat in moderation. Day 4 breakfast was on point, lunch rolls around and as requested the family prepared me an Indian favorite: Chole Bhature (garbanzo bean and slightly fried bread) with Kheer (rice pudding) for dessert. I normally would have ignored my fullness triggers and eaten about 2 plates but this time I listened and ate in moderation but still managed to hit a stage of uncomfortable fullness. Yes it was deliciousContinue Reading >>

Inflammation – The Root of All Evil (health-wise, anyway)

Many of us associate inflammation with what happens in the picture above. A bug bites you on the arm, and that area gets inflamed. Eating certain foods causes inflammation to happen internally – at a CELLULAR level. The cells in your body literally get irritated and swell. Glutens, saturated fats, high-glycemic foods, and high-carb/low protein diets are main causes of inflammation, and unfortunately very common in today’s eating culture. Studies show that inflammation continues to be linked to a laundry list of chronic diseases. Reducing inflammation will ensure health and longevity, and even alleviate joint pain and stiffness. Here are theContinue Reading >>
