Killer Kale Juice Recipe

By |January 6th, 2015|

Ah, it’s morning, it’s cleansing time and it’s 2015! Feels great doesn’t it?
As I sit here sipping on my kale juice (part of my New Years cleanse), I had to stop still in my boots and share it! After all, sharing awesome information is what brings us closer together and gives us a platform on which to launch our brilliant selves!
Confession of a nutritionist
When I first started drinking green goblets of juice back in 2007, I honestly thought it was GROSS! “Why on earth would anyone [...]

Self Love CHALLENGE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
I invite you to join me this Christmas in slowing down, appreciating the little things and giving yourself the care and attention you need not only to enjoy every day this season but also to prepare for all that is to come next year.
No matter what Christmas time brings, this time of year can bring mixed emotions and leave us with empty gas tanks. If we are not armed and ready, it can bring about a fast build up of stress, followed [...]

Sugar, gluten, paleo, veganism. Could we all be saying the same thing?

Paleo, Veganism, Raw Food. Could we all be right?
Colleagues, health enthusiasts, those involved in nutrition, wellness, fitness, medicine or the like. We all seem to have different views on what constitutes healthy living.
I found this a great wholistic debate with Frank Lipman, Mark Hyman, and Joel Kahn on sugar, gluten, paleo, vegetarianism and veganism and how we may all essentially be saying the same thing.

5 DAY Pre-Christmas Cleanse

By |November 18th, 2014|

As a trainer and coach of almost 10 years (I can’t believe that number!), I have seen many healthy and unhealthy Christmas’s come and go.

Eleanor Roosevelt said you should do one thing every day that scares you!
Scientists all over the world have proven that crossing boundaries, jumping limitations and stepping outside of our comfort zone helps to unleash our potential, live in our purpose and produce more bliss in the world.
So Phil came home from work with an easel the other day and I giggled. I have wanted one for some time and I didn’t even know why!

For the last 2 years, I have had this crazy vision of myself as [...]

Protein. Let’s talk.
It’s every bodybuilder’s favorite macronutrient and for good reason. It’s on the top of the list for discussion in lectures and round table discussions.

 

Protein is wonderful. It an essential part of our make up, is extremely satiating and is a true anabolic.

Though how much is too much ? Would it be too much if your kidneys exploded ??

Today I woke up to make my morning smoothie and decided upon something different. I was going to combine all the ingredients I use for my “usual” but would grind the nuts, grains and seeds to [...]
