Pass the butter.

Why is dietary FAT so controversial?

There are a few reasons: there is major conflict between personal beliefs and scientific based perspectives. To add to the confusion, even experts disagree on recommendations. Outdated recommendations still exist from trusted sources of information, like Health Canada and Dietitians of Canada.

So what does the EXISTING data tell us?

– Saturated fat (aka butter, fat from an animal, coconut oil) has not yet been shown to beneficially or adversely affect heart […]

Eating a balanced breakfast is linked to healthy weights, reduced weight gain over time and improved appetite control.

To gain the most from your breakfast, make sure it is well balanced. Include:
– source of protein, like eggs, Greek yogurt (*Nuts and whole grains contain protein too!)

Guest Post: Fran and Susie’s 3 homemade dressings

By |December 1st, 2014|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Salads are a staple in our household. I like them because I’m a volume eater, which means I can eat tons of salad for very little calories. Frankie eats them because he needs to “veggie up” for his ailment of the week. Whatever the personal reason, we can all agree they’re a great way to get nutrients in. But all that goodness can go downhill real fast when bacon ranch dressing gets involved. That’s why we make our own!

Creating the lifestyle you want and deserve

By |October 26th, 2014|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Many people comment on my lifestyle. They think I have this unusual self control, or am in some kind of deprivation mode. The truth is, none of this ever feels hard for me, and none of this feels like sacrifice for me.

I am human just like you, with the same temptations, same crazy schedule, and surrounded by the same environment.  Years ago, I decided how I wanted to treat myself and my body. I realized how […]

Time

By |October 18th, 2014|Uncategorized|0 Comments

A common theme in my life lately is “time”… Not enough time to finish the work I need to do, not enough time to cook, not enough time to clean, not enough time to see friends, and so on. Many of clients are experiencing the same challenges and I think it’s safe to assume you can relate. We are all busy!

Although it seems impossible to manage sometimes, there are many strategies that can help you incorporate physical […]
