Fun in The Sun, A Safe Balance

Fun in The Sun, A Safe Balance

Summer is on the way and it's time to get back outside! I love the feel of the sun on my skin. I love to be outside, walking, sprinting, kayaking, paddle-boarding, or just sitting on a beach. Based on the many social media Spring Break pictures I’ve seen the last couple of weeks, I know I’m not alone in this! But is it safe to pursue this love?

Americans are overfed and undernourished, with 2/3 of our population overweight or obese. Many people feel hungry all the time because their body isn't getting the nutrition it needs through the Standard American Diet (SAD). It is craving nutrients. Diets don’t work because we continue to eat food with minimal nutrition.

The term pickle refers to any fruit or vegetable that is preserved in an acidic medium; a salt brine for fermenting or an acid for pickling. Fermenting is simply a form of pickling, so they both really are pickles. I love both, and I prepare both. My method choice is based on the goal of the product. However, I do choose one over the other more often. Here’s the low-down. These food preservation techniques have stood the...

Body Weight or Body Measurement; Which is Best?

When adopting a healthier lifestyle in hopes of losing weight, in the form of body fat, the 2 most popular ways to track progress are; 1. Body weight 2. Body measurements They both have their place in monitoring progress, however, in my opinion, one method is hands down the best option.

Are You Sure You’re Hungry? Understanding the Signals

Many times, poor nutrition, hormones, lack of sleep, thirst or chronic stress are masquerading as hunger. Learn to read the signals before reaching for something to eat. 1. Poor Nutrition: A person can overeat, yet still feel hungry all the time. If your food choices lack nutrients, your body will crave food to satisfy this deficiency.
