Pack On That Protein! You don’t have to be a bodybuilder to realize how incredibly important Protein is to the longevity, and most importantly to the QUALITY of your life. Think about it. Your quality of life is largely determined by what you can physically (have the strength) to do, you need your muscles (your […]

Butter – Grass-Fed vs. Grain-Fed?

The Battle Of The Butters!  Butter is back! Since the popularity of high-fat diets like Keto and food trends like putting butter in your coffee, butter has staged a massive comeback. Not only that, but we’ve also begun to understand that the devilish saturated fat, the fat found in butter, and Cholesterol are not as […]

Veggies – Cooked Vs. Raw?

The Veggie Dilemma… If eating your vegetables wasn’t hard (or enjoyable) enough, now there’s a debate on how to eat them, Raw vs Cooked. I’ve seen and experienced it all. My friend went all raw and relieved her painful bouts of Endometriosis. I once ate 90% of my veggies raw and ended up with stomach […]

Massage Guns

Tired Of Foam Rollin.. Thera, Hyper, Hydra..whatever brand – Gun, is the hot new therapy and performance trend. Whether it’s the gym, basketball courts, therapy clinics, or my sisters living room, seems like everyone is jack-hammering their legs, shoulders, buttocks and anywhere else to find relief. The next generation of heating pad, stretch routine, massage, […]

Fish Oils (Omega 3)

Who wants to go fishing?  Fish oils, specifically Omega 3, have been one of my core supplements for years. Although I eat fish every week, the research surrounding healthy fats, specifically Omega 3 has been significant. Whether it’s brain health (8% of your brain is made up for Omega 3), reducing inflammation, joint health, even […]

Celery Juice

Are those “ants” (raisins) marching over a health cliff.. When I think of celery, I think of smeared peanut butter topped off with a row of raisins, the sidekick to buffalo wings (btw-how the heck, did that ever start??), and chicken salad. What I don’t think of is..a cure for Autoimmune Diseases, Acne, Chronic Fatigue, […]

Magnesium

Miracle Magnesium… Without Magnesium, 300 biochemical switches don’t get turned on.  Yikes! From nerve function, muscle contraction, immune system defense, strong bones, keeping your heartbeat steady…and if that wasn’t enough, it adjusts the sugar levels in your blood so you don’t destroy your blood vessels after a can of Coke! You might have used magnesium […]

Collagen

Get Collagen Crazy From the Greek word for “glue”, Collagen certainly lives up to its name. Making up over 30% of all the protein in the body, it can be found everyone from our skin to our cells. But as we age, we begin to not only break down the Collagen we have, but we […]

Vegetable Oils

My mom loved to cook with Canola Oil..  My mom, as most Indians, love to cook with Canola Oil. When I would tell her that it was unhealthy (very gently), she’d point to the “vegetable” in vegetable oil and tell me to get out of her kitchen. There is just something disarming about words like […]

Apple Cider Vinegar

Spoiler Alert: Apple Cider Vinegar doesn’t taste like Apples! Whether it’s grassy smoothies, chalky proteins, or bitter teas, it seems the more unpleasant tasting a “health craze” is, the more people want to do it! Taking a shot of sour, “spoiled” Apple Cider Vinegar is one trend that seems to have fallen right in-line.  The […]
