What Does Food Taste Like

What Does Food Taste Like The biggest challenge we face today in reclaiming our health (mental and physical), losing weight, gaining brain clarity, increasing productivity and practically anything else you can desire is the challenge of learning: What does food taste like?

Make Healthy Eating Easier

Make Healthy Eating Easier Make healthy eating easier. How?  I love this idea. Have a “use me” section in your fridge and your freezer! Let’s back up a bit though.  One of the things I teach my community is to make healthy eating faster and easier by cooking large quantities of food and using it multiple times.  Some people hate the idea of “leftovers”, but that’s not what I’m talking about.

Premeditated Eating…how much do you think about what you eat?

Premeditated Eating Just as I love classic cars, I love classic TV.  One of my favorites is Perry Mason. His job was, more often than not, to prove premeditated murder committed by one of the suspects.  The planning and execution of the crime reminds me of how I eat and how I counsel my clients to plan their eating regimen…but in a good way… I call it “premeditated eating” and it truly is just that. I always make it my … Continue reading
