Why you should embrace the sandwich

I think it had been a good solid 10 years since I had a sandwich. Ironically, when I was growing up, my mother sent me off to school every morning with a sandwich for lunch. I loved it. Peanut butter and jelly on whole wheat bread. I stopped eating the sandwich in the late 90’s when an iridologist  told me that I should avoid wheat and dairy due to intolerance. It seemed a natural progression to eliminate the sandwich and […]

Preventing dehydration with refreshing summer drinks

It’s hot out there and we NEED to drink more water.

Ok, so plain water is not all that exciting, I’m with you – and I am a huge water drinker! And over-drinking can be an issue when you don’t have access to a loo, especially on road trips – not to mention unladylike and uncomfortable to wiggle in my seat or sit on my heel for who knows how many miles. I’ll take the train, thank you. My point is, just drink! BUT Dehydration has odd effects on our bodies…

Natural sugar for the sweet tooth in all of us

Do you find yourself avoiding sugary things? Do you feel proud toward the end of the day that you abstained from any sugar only to find yourself indulging in an entire bag of organic licorice later? Gosh I have. More than once!     Sugar is not a BAD thing—natural sugar, that is. In small quantities, natural sugar is good for you as it is super high in vitamins and minerals.

The rest of the world doesn’t snack and it is not part of their culture. Americans fear hunger, and that is something to address. When I was in university in Paris, my friend’s kids would come home from school and have a yogurt or fruit.  I,  on the other hand, was […]

Mexican Quinoa Paella

Paella isn’t something I am normally drawn to nor something I often make at home. I am not a big fan of rice, or dishes that have been cooked for hours. But this particular dish brings back memories from childhood and holiday with my family in Mexico when I knew little about food and nothing about what Paella was. I only knew I loved the smell and the taste and I knew that it was a memory I would hold […]

Q & A – Blending vs Juicing…

Blending vs Juicing…The great debate. Is it better to blend or to juice. Frankly, the dialogue is apples to oranges as they are both valuable in their own way and both flood the body with nutrients. If you don’t have a juicer or have access to vegetable juice, then by all means, blend! But if you blend, be sure and “chew” the smoothie to activate your digestive juices and begin the digestive process. This will help to assimilate what you […]
