Ep 120 – Eat This: Change your behaviour to feel better

There are incremental steps and choices made that we’ve all taken in our life that have us in the place that we are at right here and now. Some have led to hugely successful and positive outcomes, and some the polar opposite that look like failure and breakdown. Then there’s the middle of the road outcomes like the day to day that are somewhere in the middle. Sometimes there are great things happening for us […]

EP 119 – Eat This: Why can’t I lose weight?

With apps out there that help you to hack your metabolism, claiming to help you “watch your weight come off”, is there anyone that actually believes that such a thing is possible. Getting ripped, beach body and bikini ready makes me cringe. Not only is there such potential for body dysmorphia and no one ever being happy with their size and shape, but seeing headlines like that certainly don’t help things. There are “commercial” diet […]

EP 118 – Eat This: Low sugar diet

So hopefully you know sugar isn’t your best friend from a health perspective, but you might be in denial because man it tastes good, right? The thought of giving it up leaves most people really on the fence and maybe not doing as much as they can for fear of sacrificing taste and missing out on what they love to eat. Avoiding sugar isn’t the easiest thing to do either as it’s in packaged foods, […]

EP 117 – Eat This: Are you sitting down?

Are you sitting down? I’m not asking because I have bad news to share, but that the position that you’re in right now as you sit could seriously be hampering your healthy efforts. The time that we now spend sitting; at a desk, driving, watching TV, scrolling on the phone, sitting on a bus or train, or even on a plane, well anywhere else you can sit, is actually detrimental to our health. With sitting […]

EP 116 – Eat This: Vegan Pastries

You know when you walk by a bakery and the smell of freshly baked bread oozes out as someone opens the door and walks out with their bag of flour, butter, eggs and sugar combined into a delicious loaf of bread, scone, cookie, donut, or whatever has taken your fancy! That smell…  it’s like they’re pumping out to draw you in! I can remember coming home from school to the smell of freshly baked cookies […]

EP 115 – Eat This: Regenerative farming

You’ve heard the saying, you are what you eat, right? Well, I know I don’t look like the blueberries I had for breakfast, but I do know that my cells are happier for the vitamin C, vitamin K1, manganese and potassium and plant antioxidants, my gut loves the fibre and my mouth loves the sweet taste. But what if my blueberries were conventionally grown? What if I didn’t buy only organic berries? Well, that would […]

EP 114 – Eat This: High blood pressure

When you read a stat that 25% of the world’s population has it, and personally get asked by around 10 people lately, I take it as a sign that it’s time to talk about it. It’s said that a billion people out of the 7 billion on the planet, suffer with high blood pressure or hypertension, and that’s not good. Here in Canada it’s one in five people and in the US one in 3 […]

EP 113 – Eat This: Adaptogens

Stress. We all live it and experience high and manageable levels depending on the day or even the hour. While it sometimes feels kinda lame to say that all that you’re dealing with from high blood pressure, to aches, pains, poor sleep, even being overweight with a typical stress belly, or like me suffering from migraines all come from stress, but truthfully it’s not. The flip side of stress, no matter what your body sees […]
