Eat This: Goals, Intentions and Habits

Doesn’t the new year feel like it brings a clean slate and a reset to all that has happened in the past? You’ve seen the tag lines… New Year, New YOU, right? Most people that I’ve talked to feel like the clock striking midnight on Jan 1st does feel like a reset of sorts.

Eat This: For the Love of Chocolate

Chocolate is called the “Food of the Gods”, which could be interpreted in about 100 ways, with all schools of thoughts ending up thinking that chocolate is good for you. But then there’s the “don’t have too much” narrative that really dominates conversations about chocolate. The taunt of marketing that says “bet you can’t just have one”… Wait maybe that’s for chips. Whoops, I’ve just swiped another’s tagline, but you get what I mean, right? […]

Eat This: Grocery Shopping Habits

Grocery shopping isn’t what it once was. You know, that stop and shop-on-the fly, making a pit stop on your way home from work to get dinner fixings for that night’s meal. Well that changed because of COVID in ways that we could never have imagined. First, the fear of going to the grocery store, being told to stay at home and only go out when necessary. Long wait times for the new online shopping, […]

Eat This: Genetic Tests for Health and Epigenetics

Our genes carry the information that determines our traits, those features or characteristics that are passed on to us from our biological parents. Our genes drive our health, even influence the food that you prefer to eat, and carry information that makes you who you are and what you look like. For instance, do you have freckles like my kids? Yep, my genes showed up in my girls with freckles – my youngest even has […]

Eat This: Symptoms of deficiency (Part 3)

You asked for it, yes you did. You want to know more about symptoms of deficiencies. Well, possibly not YOU whose ears I’m speaking into right now, but others out there who have listened to the past two episodes, multiple times. Those who sat and took notes and even shared the episodes with others because they knew a certain someone who suffers with a symptom or situation that I talked about.  Isn’t it great to […]

Eat This: Food labels and claims

About two weeks ago, I went out to the supermarket for a bigger shop to add onto my usual weekly farmers market visit. I needed to stock up on some pantry essentials and I also needed some extras that aren’t staples, but handy. You know, some fast snacks to have on stand by, for when we need to dash out of the house and throw something in a bag. Heading into the supermarket these days […]
