Stress, mood wars, and brain health

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength. – Corrie Ten Boom  The benefits of happiness are immeasurable AND measurable. Happier people are more productive, more resilient, live longer, have stronger immune systems and earn more money over their lifetimes. Unfortunately, Americans are an unhappy lot. In the U.S.,…

It’s February and I’m sucking at my New Year’s resolutions

Feb 23, 2015

They should have been easy ones because they were all about ease: Go to bed early (by 10 p.m.) and keep a Sabbath. There are many aspects of my health and life I want to guard: my mental health, cognitive sharpness, my creativity, playtime, my physical and emotional resilience, immune strength, and my pleasure reading.…

For a few years, we’ve known that my daughter Eva got periodic stomach aches when she ate gluten or sugar. It wasn’t every time, but regularly enough that even a then 14 year old saw the connection. As a nutritionist, I’ve learned that the “gold standard” for identifying food sensitivities is an elimination diet. If…

If it all just seems too complicated…

Feb 17, 2014

I completely sympathize with people who feel overwhelmed and beat up by the black and white “eat this/don’t eat that” food rules that seem to change every day. We want so much to do the “right” thing when it comes…

Lately, no matter what the health issue we’re addressing, I find myself circling back to the practice of menu planning with my clients. Menu planning can be done in countless ways and really isn’t complicated at all. Perhaps because it is uncomplicated and easy, we…
