Nutrition: Read This if You Still Drink Coke

Sodas like Coke are definitely not healthy. They’re loaded with high fructose corn syrup which is an especially strong driver of obesity, heart disease and diabetes. It is an especially dangerous sweetener because unlike glucose and other forms of sugar, it is the only one directly metabolized by the liver and which is almost immediately converted to fat.

Nutrition: One More Reason to Go Gluten Free

If I asked you to name one of the most benign, safe over-the-counter type drugs, most of you would name one of the anti-inflammatory NSAID drugs like ibuprofen.

Healthy Living: Be Crabby and Embrace Change

I was reading a beautiful Holy Land Moments devotional recently and the writer used the way a crab grows to make a spiritual point. As I read the devotional it spoke volumes to me about why some people have such a difficult time changing negative habits.

The difference between crabs, humans and most other animals…

Nutrition: “Egg-cellent” Eggs

Eggs are an almost perfect food! An egg’s shell color doesn’t indicate the quality or nutritional value of an egg, but rather the breed of the hen that laid it. Hens with white feathers tend to lay white eggs and hens with red feathers tend to lay brown eggs.

Why it’s Healthy:

Whole eggs…

Health: Being Proactive Can Save Your Life

If you needed to have repairs or upgrades done in your home chances are you shop around. You call two or three different people and compare the service they offer with the price and choose what works best for you.

Health: Cheap vs Expensive What You Value is the Determining Factor

I think you would have to agree that our medical system in this country is profit driven. Just watch some commercials telling you all the benefits of some new drug, and then listen closely to the absolutely scary side effects, the list of which is much longer than the…

Health: My Best Simple Tips For a Healthier Year

Last month I was interviewed by The Iron Jen McDonough and shared some really simple steps to make this your healthiest, best year ever. One of the basic principles of my coaching is to use what I call “baby steps” – small, gradual, incremental changes rather than large, sweeping ones.

Baby steps may not seem very effective but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Each small, consistently practiced change builds on the next and they create…

Healthy Mouth, Healthy Heart
