We put together a quick Q+A for you, and I encourage you to check out the resources Melissa mentions and her own work! [LB] You call yourself a confidence junkie-say more about what t...

Why should I clear my (virtual) plate?

I recently had the honor of interviewing the lovely Dr. Fiona Lovely of the Not Your Mother's Menopause podcast and Facebook community. We talked a lot about bringing peace to busy women in what can be a stressful time in our lives, and we took a crack at making hormones make sense! You can listen to the interview here: please note that there is a lead of about 1:15 before the recording beg...

SOUL food | Unique

This is the third post in the SOUL food series—you can find the first one at SOUL food | Seasonal and the second at SOUL food | Organic. Integrative Nutrition® upholds that we are all bio-individual: what is food for me might be poison for you; what nourishes me might toxify you. This is true not only for the food we put in our mouths but for all the primary foods that nourish us (or don't), an...

SOUL food | Organic

This is the second post in the SOUL food series—you can find the first one at SOUL food | Seasonal. "Organic" has a lot of meanings—perhaps the most familiar in today's world is its reference to foods grown without synthetic inputs (that's right, organic farmers can use pesticides and herbicides—but they cannot be synthetically derived) using farming methods that integrate cultural, biologica...

SOUL food | Seasonal

fall
As I mentioned at the end of last year, my focus has been shifting from helping clients with their SOLE foods—the seasonal, organic, local, and ethical foods that I recommend underpin your eating choices, no matter where you fall on the spectrum between vegan and omnivore—to supporting them in the area of SOUL foods—all the other parts of our lives that nourish us...or don't. If you want to try...

Unlimited do-overs

It's pretty common for New Year's resolutions to dissolve just weeks into the new year, and as we approach the start of 2018, I have some thoughts on why that's so. Don't get me wrong: I definitely don't discourage setting resolutions—I am just interested in exploring why we have a hard time keeping them, and I've come up with some tips to make resolutions more keep-able. arbitrary or intentio...

SOLE food | SOUL food

At the end of 2016, I shifted my health coaching practice from focusing almost entirely on secondary foods—what we put in our mouths—to primary foods—everything else in our lives that nourishes us (or doesn't). I also set a goal of blogging once a week rather than once a month (or so) and sending my post out by email to my list. It's been a year since then, and I'm happy to report I am one week...

If it ain’t broke, reframe it

Occasionally, I need to disappear from my health coaching practice due to the demands that my side hustle as a grants consultant places on my schedule. Late November and early December were such a period, but it's not been time lost: I've been keeping my eyes and ears open for media coverage of the topic that many of my clients are dealing with. Since late November, I've been following the to-d...

Do you really need another blender?

My biz bestie, Holly Southerland of Waco Home Organizers, recently sent a note of encouragement to her email list about FOMO (fear of missing out) and doing a "digital detox" by unsubscribing from email lists and unfollowing on social media. You might laugh at her description of how we end up with three blenders—and you might just shed a secret tear because, um, you have three blenders yourself...
