I have a fun experiment for you. :) Is today a “cheat day”? I’m guessing not if it’s not a weekend, since cheat days usually happen on weekends – but you know what I mean, right? Any of us who grew up in a dieting culture probably know about cheat days. But if you don’t, here’s what I […]

Healthy food wants you to cheat on it. Here’s why.

I’ve noticed something with my clients lately (and – if I’m being honest – for years): Their ability to reach their goals has less to do with the nuts and bolts of our work (i.e., food, exercise, sleep, all that good stuff)… … and more to do with how they APPROACH the work of feeling […]

Not reaching your goals? Change your perspective.

I don’t know about you, but nighttime is my danger zone when it comes to eating stuff I shouldn’t. It’s like I’m possessed by a chocolate, cookie, carb and sugar-loving demon/Cookie Monster – when all day, I was just fine!

The surprising food that stops sugar cravings

Is “what’s for dinner?” the scariest question in your day? You’re not alone. Figuring out what to eat every night (and every morning and every afternoon) – let alone making it healthy! – is a serious source of stress, even for those of us who “do food” for a living. How can you fit meal prep […]

I should warn you… I’m feeling a little sassy today. What follows may be a tiny bit of a smack-down. ;) I say it with love, though. Truly. Sometimes the most loving thing we can do is call someone on their sh*t, right? And here’s the sh*t I keep hearing from smart, beautiful, sassy, strong […]

The biggest excuse smart women make for not being healthy

What’s your relationship with your scale? Do you step on it and smile? Or do you gingerly put one foot and then the other on it, hold your breath, and take a furtive glance down – waiting for it to tell you how good or bad you are? If you’re like most women trying to […]

Why your scale is keeping you from losing weight

I’m curious about nearly everything that contributes to living a healthier, vibrant, and mindful life (which is a good thing, since it’s my job to help you live that kind of life). I also have an opinion about (nearly) all of it. No surprise there, especially to anyone who knows me personally. ;) Because of […]

But that’s because it lets me eat breakfast food at lunch!) I’m always coming up with new ways to start my day and experimenting to find the foods […]

Quick breakfast ideas for busy mornings

A few months ago, I ran a little experiment on myself. A hunger experiment. That sounds terrible, I know. Just for a moment though, let’s remove the political heaviness from the term “hunger” and consider how tuning into it might help you make better choices. Here’s what I mean. I’ve been a snacker for years. […]
