When doing Whole30, many people end up doing a low carb version of it, just because of ease.  Whole30 is not low carb, but many people naturally go towards that end. Low carb can create a little bit of a problem for your intestines initially.

My Not So Secret Spot

My spot was secret for a good 10 years.  Then the Instagram crowd found it. The last few years it's been much busier, but it still speaks to my soul.

Ashwagahdha - whaaaatt?

What the hell is Ashwagandha?  What the hell is an adaptogen?  

It’s all the rage the last few years and it’s finally becoming a bit more mainstream, so I figured I’d let you in on the scoop, now that it’s not so far down the hippie rabbit hole any longer. :)

Whole30 + Publix Grocery Guide

Currently, Publix is located in six states in the Southeastern U.S.: Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.  It’s growing! But mostly us Floridians know it for - “Will you pick up the sandwiches for the Boat at Publix?”  Or my favorite (food freedom) “All I need you to bring is a Key Lime Pie from Publix”.

How To: Meditate

I feel you. That was the recurring theme in my yearly attempts to start meditating. Over the years, I would create a pretty space, read some blogs/books/articles and carve out some time. Repeatedly I would be tough on myself.

Dirty Talk

Time to talk toxins.  It’s not just about what goes IN you.  It’s also about what goes ON you.  It’s a lot to process, but change things out as you can.  Your skin is an organ.  It does absorb things.

Should I ice it?

Dearest Reader, Back in the dark ages, when King Arthur ruled and I was a newly minted massage therapist, this was an easily answered question. RICE. It was lovely. We had a great acronym to help out with new injuries called, RICE.

I'm too busy

Beware, this was written after a client with A LOT of health problems asked me to help them, then proceeded to tell me all the reasons why they couldn’t make changes. So it’s very tongue in cheek. I’m Too Busy. I’m too busy to take time to prepare food.
