Goal Setting

(FYI, long post but good read)  I, along with my CF gals (Melia and Stacey), had an amazing opportunity this past weekend to attend a Goal Coaching seminar taught by Greg Amundson and hosted at Crossfit Santa Clara.

To me it’s yoga meets crossfit (the best of my two worlds). It is how the mind influences the body and how the body responds to the mind. There is a deepContinue Reading >>

New Year, New You!

Nutritionizers, welcome to 2011! I hope you all had a very happy, safe, and satisfying holiday season. I know i did. Nachos with lots of fat, cheese, and crap. Cookies cookies cookies. Wine.

Aside from adding a yellow orange tint to my purple and blue foot, turmeric acts as an anti- inflammatory and heating agent. Turmeric is found in many Indian foods and is responsible for staining your fingers when eating or cooking Indian food. It’sContinue Reading >>

Your taste buds are talking… are you listening?

My terrible sore throat and honey home remedy gone wrong resulting in a burned tongue have made me appreciate and inquire more about my lovely taste buds. With unlimited food options all around us we have the luxury to pick and choose the foods that will nourish not just our bodies but more so our taste buds. What is the sense of taste? How does it affect the food choices we make? How to treat your buds better? Taste- the ability to respond to dissolved molecules and ions called tastants In the west there are 5 basic tastes that weContinue Reading >>
