Come up to the lab…

If your mind immediately filled in that blank with "and see what's on the slab," you're proof that campy movies never die. THAT one has been entertaining college students since I was 10 years old. And what place, you might be thinking, does The Rocky Horror Picture Show have in a blog post on health, especially a post that ought to be focusing on either how to create a healthy Thanksgiving meal...

We interrupt this programming…

Fair Food Network, the awesome non-profit where I work part-time as a contractor, has been growing in leaps and bounds since I started there eight years ago. When I reduced my work there to that of part-time contractor in 2016, it became necessary to change my title. In the process, I joked that I should join the C-Suite as CHO, chief harassment officer, since most of my work involves chasing s...

Fill Your Plate | Feed Your Life

One of the fundamental principles of Integrative Nutrition® health coaching is that we are not only nourished (or toxified) by the food we put in our mouths—our secondary foods; we are equally (perhaps even more so) nourished or toxified by our primary foods: the relationships, work, physical activity, spiritual practice, sleep habits, etc. that we choose to embrace. I love the work of Gene...

Health is a journey – be sure to carry a map!

Before I work with a client, we have what I call a YOURstory session (like a history, but a little less gendered and a bit more personal!), an opportunity to reflect on their health - past, present, and future. One question I ask during this session seems to throw a lot of people: "At what point in your life did you feel best, and why do you think that is/was so?" For some, it's difficult because...

Every year, I grumble about the impending holidays ... and every year, the holiday frenzy seems to come earlier. And every year, I shut down the holiday music at work idea, much to the dismay of a Christmas-loving colleague who (due to a passion for crafting) can tell you on any given day out ...

The Substitute

Scrolling through my Facebook feed, which is daily flooded with posts by fellow health coaches, I came across more than one share of a post titled "Healthy Food Substitutes for a Vegan or Vegetarian Lifestyle." It linked to the website of a company that is "committed to making only the best plant-based foods and supplements." My combination of passionate real foodie and insatiable inner editor sh...
