Thoughts For The Season

Hello! Did you miss last week’s blog? My apologies, there were too many illnesses, tasks and chaos in my life last week to get the blog done on time. You have probably heard me talk endlessly about self-care; and perhaps you roll your eyes and say to yourself, “Yeah, right, that again”, and you feel […]

Fruit And Fun For All!

This week will begin a series of about four blogs.  They come to you courtesy of my favorite magazine – Nutrition Action Healthletter. This is a magazine published by Center for Science in the Public Interest, so it is not a 12 step publication, but their information is always accurate (except they don’t know about […]

Are You Going Back?

As I work with my clients, I often feel sad that they are unable to do some of the things that they want to do in their lives.  The food gets in the way and we spend many years trying to solve the food problem.  We say to ourselves, “As soon as I lose this […]
