Every day, along with 40 other daily givers, I have the privilege of making seed grants to up and coming social change leaders around the world. Our t...
It is irrelevant that the bottle of organic maple syrup would include a statement saying that no formaldehyde is used. Maple syrup produced anywhere legally, should be formaldehyde free.
If you find "high fructose corn syrup" or the new term "corn sugar" on the label, you can be sure it is not whole, real, fresh food full of fiber, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants.
I often wonder, if we started referring to our treatment as a "gluten-free prescription" or "gluten-free regimen," would people stop equating our medicine with weight loss? While I obviously can't say for sure, my gut tells me that could be the case.
A good way to transition into this habit is to use smaller plates and serve yourself smaller portions. That way, you can stop before helping yourself to more and really ask your body whether it needs more food.
When I say bikini body, what comes to mind? Maybe a before and after shot, like the ones that clog up your newsfeed? I see a lot of clients fall into...
When are we going to get the message that it's not about having a perfect body? That there's no such thing as perfection. That striving for perfection actually leads to more and more self-harm.
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Mark Hyman, M.D. -- a leading functional medicine doctor and author of numerous books, including The Bloo...
Recovery is not negotiable. You can either make time to rest and rejuvenate now or make time to be sick and injured later. Keep your bucket full.
My St. Patricks Day is Halloween. While it has been over 40 years since the heyday of my "Trick or Treating" days, I still remember the fine aroma of ...
As we go from ignoring our bodies to opening up a dialogue with them, we naturally start to make decisions out of love for our bodies.
But with a little creativity, holidays like Halloween could become opportunities to teach kids that healthful eating can be both fun and delicious. While we can't save them from every villain, we can cast a healthy spell that will protect them from the worst of the real world's dastardly demons.
Remember that health goes much deeper than whether or not you are a size 2 and 110 pounds. Looking within allows you to find lasting wellness and health. And isn't that what we all really want?
Our story started in 2005 when my beautiful son was born. When he was four weeks old we knew something was not right, and we rushed him to hospital. T...
This year, the expo portion of the event drew more than 350 food and nutrition related exhibitors. It's here that new products and innovations are launched and food trends come to life.
Diets consistently high in sugar can cause obesity, diabetes and heart disease--to avoid these and other health problems, it's important to know what's in your food. Check out these unexpected sources of sugar to be more aware of your sugar intake.
To reap the health benefits, I began eating canned sardines packed in olive oil years ago. I eat the contents of a single can nearly every day, but I recently discovered that the nutritional information I thought to be true wasn't accurate at all.
Dieting is a short-term, get-on-then-get-back-off approach to the permanent challenge of losing weight and finding health. It has been tested rather generously, and it does not work. Perpetuating a method proven so robustly to be a massive failure is, at best, foolish.
High calorie counts, insane amounts of added sugar, and unnatural additives. We all know soda is by no means healthy. It has become a major focus in t...
When I returned to Boston from Rome, where I served as U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican for almost five years, I was getting older and now had larger family obligations -- 17 grandchildren. But I still found the time and energy to do all the things I had and wanted to do.
