    Between Meals Podcast. Episode 02: Eyes on the Whys.

    Between Meals Podcast Episode 02 Show Notes: 

    When it comes to health, I am often hit with loaded questions like: “How Can I Be Healthy?”, “Where Do I Start?” or “How Should I Eat?”

    Nutrition and the world of health and wellness can be wildly overwhelming and contradicting. There are so many paths, directions and goals. My answers to these questions will probably surprise you.

    In episode two of Between Meals we spend time getting back to basics, we talk about where to start and most importantly the mindset work that I believe is required before you ever even start with changing habits and implementing new approaches to your health.

    For now Episode 02 of Between Meals is available here on Soundcloud, you can stream or download. The Between Meals podcast will be on iTunes, Spotify and other podcast feeds and players VERY soon.

    15 Homemade Holiday Gifts

    With the holiday closing in on us, I am sure many of you are doing the last minute gift scramble so prevalent in these final days before Christmas. Rather than throwing money at the wall and going with whatever it sticks to, instead of just grabbing another gift card from the big box stores, why not get creative and craft up some beautiful, thoughtful homemade gifts this year?

    Drop the cottonball snowmen, leave the popsicle sticks in the popsicles and leave the salt dough for the kids. Finally put away, I repeat, put away the glitter. Spread the holiday cheer with some of my favorite sweet (but sometimes savory) and simple handmade holiday gifts.

  5. 5 Mealtime Tips to Improve Digestion

    Digestive dysfunction is easily the most common chronic ailment I encounter working as a Nutritional Therapist. As a follow-up to my in-depth series Digestion 101, I wanted to offer five, simple actionable steps that you can take right away to immediately begin the improvement of your digestion.

    Digestive dysfunction can have many faces – gas, bloating, stomach aches, indigestion – we’ve all been there. Yes, there are plenty of quick-fix, short term “bandaid” approaches to managing the symptoms, I see so many people that often pop antacids, take anti-gas, diarrhea or constipation meds just to get through the day.  Sadly this only manages the symptoms of a larger problem and more often than not the root cause of the dysfunction is left untreated and the problems still persist.

    Rather than popping pills or difficult, unnatural approaches, here are 5 simple, meal-time tips to improve your digestion, naturally.

Vacations are around the corner, road trips will be aplenty and you are probably already stressing about how you will safely eat. This next post in my ongoing series is one that I have a lot of experience with. Traveling with dietary restrictions can be challenging, to say the least, but if you can plan ahead and prepare for the journey, it can still be a wonderful adventure you will remember for a lifetime.

    Traveling has to be one of my favorite things, but with a gluten-free lifestyle, I have had to get a little crafty and plan ahead whenever I hit the road.

    Please feel free to share some of your own tips, too.
