Eat This: What’s not to love about tea?

Tea is the second most consumed drink in the world – next to water, that is. Answer this: if you could only drink one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? I’d likely say water, but I might get bored of it, so I’ll agree with some of the great functional medicine docs out there and say tea. Tea can vary the taste of what’s in your cup but with some […]

Eat This: FAT!

Fats, oils and even butter have got a rap over the years and , no go away thing going on with us humans. And my guess is that the bad rap that of fat, that includes cooking or baking with oils, smashing avocado on your morning or lunchtime toast and slathering butter anything came from the “FAT-FREE” 80’s and that lead to our demise of this once revered staple being an essential part of our […]

Eat This: Don’t ditch the carbs, switch the carbs

Few foods can make you feel as warm and happy as a big bowl of pasta or a few thick slices of warm bread smothered in creamy butter. Carbs are life for so many people. The mere thought of giving up bread, pasta or pizza (or the sweeter carbs like cookies or donuts) sends them into a tailspin.  Carbohydrates – or carbs, as they are fondly known – come in a bunch of tastes, textures, […]

Eat This: Drainage vs Detox

The meaning of the word detoxify, according to Merrium Webster, is to “remove a harmful substance (such as a poison or toxin) or the effect of such and to render (a harmful substance) harmless.” In my circles, a detox is usually seen more as removing foods and drinks from your daily diet for a period of time with the view that it will cleanse your body. What’s interesting is that when someone puts themselves on […]

Eat This: Demystifying CBD and Your Health

Could we have a magic natural remedy in our midst? Well, the benefits of the distinct five leaf marijuana plant are not new – some say it’s been used since 750 BC in various ways. But the health benefits of CBD in particular are becoming more well known as research unfolds around what looks like magical powers for this non-psychoactive component of the marijuana or hemp plant. Sure, the uses of marijuana have been around […]

Eat This: Coffee – The good, the bad and the best of

Is that morning cup of joe, rocket fuel or java your morning or afternoon lifeblood? Coffee is a complex and yet simple one to take a deep dive into. With coffee shops on every corner, a menu a mile long with all the extras like whip, frap, foam, one or two pumps of flavour and toppings, buying a coffee can not only break the bank, but almost put your pancreas into a sugar coma if […]

Eat This: Are all calories equal?

Stepped on the scale lately? If it’s showing you a number that isn’t to your liking, what’s your first thought? Most likely – eat less? It is January after all. It’s that time when we are all more focused on making a change to diet and lifestyle and perhaps, like my mom used to say, a time to “button your lip”, meaning that she wasn’t happy with her weight and so it was time to […]

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. And depending on how the previous year went, sometimes it’s good riddance and other times you don’t want the goodness to […]
