Back to basics

Today I met with some girlfriends for lunch and we started talking about health and nutrition. Two hours later, I came to the realization that other people may not be as health obsessed as I am. Granted, I am the first to admit that I am a health and nutrition nerd. I can spend hours […]

Healthy online shopping

Quick post on Wednesday favorites. Maybe you have heard of this website, but in case you haven’t check out iHerb.com and be prepared to spend at least an hour checking out the items. I use this site to purchase items either too expensive here in Singapore, or items not available. The deals are wonderful and […]

Glass half full

This may be a completely selfish post, but it will help keep me accountable. I am sometimes plagued by negative thoughts when I have so much in my life to be grateful for. Why does it seem so easy to fall into negative thinking? The result of negative thinking takes you away from the present […]

How sweet it is…

Sugar has been given the bad rap. Let’s be clear, I am not talking about fruit sugars. I am talking about refined, and highly processed sugar. Today we can find sugar in cereals, juices, breads, smoothies, and even toothpaste! Sugar is everywhere and unless you are reading your food labels, you may not even realize […]

Typically people become vegan due to health and wellness, concerns for the environment, ethical preference, or political reasons. I know some vegans love to announce their veganism and how many years they have been vegan, but I am not one of […]

Pack in the Chlorophyll

Today’s favorite is the super power food known as wheat grass! Powdered wheat grass is different than what you may have tried in a small shot with a side of orange slice. Powdered wheat grass is more concentrated. I add a heaping teaspoon in my juice every morning. The benefits of having wheat grass are endless! […]

Self-Love

I am sure some of you can relate to my obsession with Ted talks. I typically watch at least one a day. If you have no idea what I am talking about do yourself a favor and go to Ted.com, pick a topic, and expand your knowledge. This past week I watched one on self-compassion. […]

Let’s Talk Chemistry

You have probably heard of pH before, but never thought about using the pH spectrum in your diet. The pH scale ranges from 0.0 totally acid to totally alkaline at 14.0, with 7.0 being neutral. The ideal blood range pH is from 7.35 to 7.40 while our muscles and skin are 6.8 pH. Ideally when […]

Fitness Friday

Like the alliteration, cheesy right? Well, I am going with it because it fits my topic. Last year I started up an adult ballet class. I have no dance experience, aside from a semester in high school, of which I was so painfully shy I hardly participated. I have always loved ballet and respect the […]
