One of the biggest questions we hear from our clients is about which oils are best for cooking with. The mainstream media has been awash with all sorts of snippets on this topic. We turned to nutritionist Barb Skinner to write an informative guest post and full run-down on the best oils for cooking, eating raw, and avoiding.
Research supports what we all know to be true: we live in a stressed out society. According to the American Psychological Association, 24% of adult Americans categorized their average stress levels as “extreme stress” in 2015. As the pace of life, work, and even leisure speeds up, it is more important than ever to understand how this chronic stress impacts our wellbeing, and in particular digestion and nutrient absorption. Check out this guest post from nutritionist Barb Skinner to learn how exactly stress impacts digestion and for simple, straightforward ideas on how you can impact your health.
My philosophy on veggie chili is go big or go home, both in flavor and in size. I’ve been making this recipe for years, and am always thankful for the extra leftovers when they are in the freezer. This hearty vegetarian version of classic chili packs in the flavor and veggies without guilt or grease.
The change of seasons is a great time to reflect and reconnect with ourselves and values.Yoga instructor Lee Carson shares her tip for setting priorities and keeping stress at bay when time gets tight.

The other day a friend made a comment about eating three hard boiled eggs, but not every day.

Or are they too high in cholesterol and need to be limited?
Realistic and minimally processed are two of the main goals for our family’s meals. With a four- and six-year-old, pizza is a regular item on our menu. In fact, Max loves it so much he requests it for his school lunches. We make this healthy homemade pizza every Sunday. We eat it along side a big salad and rainbow colored fresh fruits and veggies.
One of the biggest indicators of measurable health is longevity. There are predictable factors surrounding those who outlast others. Time Magazine published a fascinating article earlier this year about three things that add up to increased longevity (and we’d argue vitality, too).
For busy weeknights, the slow cooker is a dream. But I’ve always had a hard time finding vegetarian recipes aside from chili. With baseball season upon us, I took matters into my own hands modifying a meat-based recipe to create a Mexican-inspired, rainbow-packed staple vegetarian meal for our family. It’s forgiving and easy to make substitutions for your preferences.
I‘ve always been a proponent of incorporating smoothies in to daily nutrition plans. They’re a great, convenient way to incorporate many essential basics (carbs/protein/fats) as well as valuable micronutrients. We’ve posted smoothie blogs in the past that Lee still makes for the kids.
