Are ORGANIC Packaged Foods Healthier?

Truth Time. That's me right there and I'm not scared to admit it: I love Annie's organic macaroni.

But after a week of broccoli, cabbage, brown or wild rice, peppers, swiss chard  and other veggie favourites, sometimes a good bowl of hot macaroni really balances things out. The Marketing Trickery: Even though packaged foods can have labels on them like "natural" or "organic" and use organic ingredients in them, can we still trust that they are good for us? How do they compare to real food? Suddenly, we come into the truth of eating. You always have a choice.

Why You Don't Have to Finish Your Plate

You don't have to finish your plate. The post-war generations taught us to 'finish your plate' because back then there really was fears of shortages of food and rations. It was vital to finish your plate because you were lucky to get a plate at all. Almost all of my clients have said to me at one point or another, that they are 'trained to finish the plate, whether I'm hungry or not.' We don't actually think of it as a choice. Here's why you NO longer need to do this.

Eat Ice Cream (and Other "Bad" Things)

One reason we are so lost in nutrition is because we are constantly looking to external forces to tell us how to eat. We follow diet trends, we buy the latest products, we read the newest books and change our diets based on everyone else's opinion or 'facts.' What this does is lead us to believe that we do not inherently know what our body likes to eat, what it leads us to believe is that we don't trust ourselves to know. Here I am sharing why I don't care if my clients' eat ice cream or other junk food.....

Why Your Pain Isn’t ‘Just Going Away’

The Body heals the body. We just need to find the root cause. Potions, pills do not actually heal the body. Not pills. Not drinks. Not vitamin waters. Not tinctures. Not creams. Not smoothies. Not any magic bullets... Our body needs proper food to function. Its our fuel and source of energy. We need it to maintain life and energy. Here's the philosophy of what holistic means....

But at the end of the day, it's not the food we eat, the drinks/smoothies we drink, the creams and tinctures we give our body, its our body that has to deal with what we are giving it. Its the body that decides whether we heal, feel better, get better - or not.

The Death + Revival of Real Food

The death of real food is among us. We can see it everywhere we go. We are losing the generation where home cooked meals with real ingredients were used, and gaining more and more packaged and processed ready-to-go meals. According to Mark Hyman, MD: "The slow insidious displacement of home cooked and communally shared family meals by the industrial food system has fattened our nation and weakened our family ties. More meals are eaten in the minivan than the kitchen." Here's how you can help us revive the death of the #realfood movement....

Reality Check: There is NO Magic Cure

I believe that the best path to health is in the food we eat. Not in expensive pills, not in expensive boxes. Not in real food ground up and put in pills. Not in synthetic vitamins added to our water.

Instead.... Real food. Real drinks. Traditional foods. Traditional drinks. But... there is this idea that floats around.... that it is products, pills, oils, foods, (fermented or otherwise) or supplements that can cure us.
