Fasting (part 1)

I have wanted to write about fasting for some time now and am still gathering more and more information on it to share so it will most likely be a 2 part post. I have experimented with many different types of eating plans, influenced by learning new information, eastern philosophy, western medicine, health, and prevention and each time I have learned something new about my body. At one point I was consistently fasting one day a week and I felt great. So let’s talk understand fasting, you might be wondering why I am writing about NOT eating, I have learnedContinue Reading >>

Eating healthy on Turkey Day?

With Turkey Day almost here, are you prepared? Have you told yourself you’re going to Nutritionize, or completely blow it? Either way is totally fine.

“Fruit of the Gods”

Before I moved to California 5 years ago from New York, I never even heard of this thing. I had my first Persimmon a few weeks ago, plucked right off a friends tree. I wasn’t even sure how to eat it, however someone suggested it eats like an apple. Honestly I wasn’t impressed; the taste was mild and the skin pretty harsh. However now that they’re in season, I must say I’m a believer! If you live in California, you can find them everywhere right now.
