Protein for Energy, Anti-Aging, & Ideal Body Composition

tips Jul 17, 2021

First off, let’s see if you are potentially deficient in protein. Take this quick little quiz. Rate these questions with a score of 0 (not at all) - 5 (totally).

  1. Are your hormones out of balance?
  2. Are your nails and hair weak and brittle?
  3. Skin showing signs of damage?
  4. Constantly hungry?
  5. Lacking energy?
  6. Are your muscles atrophying?
  7. Slow to recover from workouts?

0-10, congrats, you’re most likely getting your needed protein.

11-20, more protein may help you.

21-35, you may be deficient!

Many of us fall short on optimal intake, particularly women. And these are all signs of protein deficiency. It’s easy to blame these signs on aging, but don’t dismiss them until you rule out protein deficiency. I don’t participate in that narrative. I intend to remain strong and healthy as long as I possibly can.

I often speak to the importance of protein, which is in my opinion the most important macronutrient. The other 2 macros, carbohydrates and fat, are also...

Fun in The Sun, A Safe Balance

tips Mar 20, 2021

Summer is on the way and it's time to get back outside! I love the feel of the sun on my skin. I love to be outside, walking, sprinting, kayaking, paddle-boarding, or just sitting on a beach. Based on the many social media Spring Break pictures I’ve seen the last couple of weeks, I know I’m not alone in this!

But is it safe to pursue this love? The sun has been vilified for an awfully long time. Rightfully so... when abused. I'm guilty of this abuse and have the sunspots to prove it. But many of us have forgotten that it's also a critical component to health and longevity. Connecting with nature and breathing fresh air has become foreign to us, as we spend much of our time indoors.

Consider this. Regular moderate sun exposure is not linked to cancer, but lack of vitamin D is linked to many, many avoidable conditions, including poor COVID outcomes.

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information,,...

Who Needs a Pep Talk?

tips Feb 13, 2021

The questions and comments I’m hearing are very telling. I think we all need one!! Myself included!

Some are feeling that progress is so, so slow. Some are struggling with the balance of health, kids, and work. Many are ready for warmer weather. Most are sick of the restrictions on our movement and freedom. Where the heck do we start?!

Getting healthier and stronger is a process. Not one and done. You are never ‘there’ or ‘done’. Sorry to break that to you. It’s a lifestyle.


Belief + Action = Results

Belief - Yep, as always, we start with mindset.

  • What’s your why? If your why isn’t big enough, progress will be slow. Is it to prevent disease, live long and healthy, be able to keep up with your grandchildren, look good naked, feel better? Know your why.
  • Can you see it? Do you believe it? Present tense visualization is incredibly powerful. Practice seeing it every morning when you wake up and every night...

5 Tips To Eat The Rainbow

faster way tips Aug 13, 2020

Healthy eating doesn’t have to be bland or boring. In fact, there’s such an incredible variety of fruits and veggies available at the grocery store that there’s never a reason to tire of your meal plan! We’re not talking specialty health food stores that carry exotic options you’ll never actually try. We’re talking about the regular old grocery store where you normally shop!

Why does “eating the rainbow” matter to your health? Because fruits and veggies are loaded with fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other phytochemicals we need for good health. Color doesn’t just add visual variety to our fruits and veggies, it also represents different families of healing compounds in the fruits and veggies we eat!

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 87 percent of Americans aren't getting enough servings of vegetables and 76 percent don't get enough fruit each day. We can turn those numbers around by...

Body Weight or Body Measurement; Which is Best?

tips Feb 28, 2020

When adopting a healthier lifestyle in hopes of losing weight, in the form of body fat, the 2 most popular ways to track progress are;

1. Body weight

2. Body measurements

They both have their place in monitoring progress, however, in my opinion, one method is hands down the best option. Here are my take and recommendation.

Body Weight

Measuring body weight on a scale wins the convenience factor because scales are available most anywhere. But it’s also the most inaccurate because it takes everything into account, including what you just ate or drank, what you’re wearing, your fluid retention, and your bones, fat & muscle.

And lastly, it seems to be the most misused. Some people get downright obsessive and weigh themselves multiple times throughout the day and think they have gained or lost based on the reading. I even heard of a woman who packed her scale when she traveled. Now that’s obsessive.

It’s near impossible to gain or lose a pound of fat in a few...

Ferment or Pickle, What’s It Going To Be?

tips Feb 28, 2020

All fermented foods are pickles, but not all pickled foods are ferments. What? This can be confusing because both are referred to as pickles. The term pickle refers to any fruit or vegetable that is preserved in an acidic medium; a salt brine for fermenting or an acid for pickling. Fermenting is simply a form of pickling, so they both really are pickles.

I love both, and I prepare both. My method choice is based on the goal of the product. However, I do choose one over the other more often. Here’s the low-down.

These food preservation techniques have stood the test of time. Humans have been eating pickles for many thousands of years. For added incentive, you can easily make them at home for a fraction of the cost of store-bought. Personally, I think homemade is better.

Read labels if purchasing from a store because most have added yellow dye. Why? I have no idea. It isn’t necessary because they are colorful and beautiful just as they are.

For fermenting, the brine can be...
