Purple Power Detox Smoothie

I’m not an advocate of diets, but I do believe that some people can benefit from a period of detoxification. This is always a popular subject in January because most of us have indulged over the holiday season – refined sugar & fat from holidays sweets, deep-fried, fatty & processed appetizers, alcohol – and as […]

Detoxifying Green Smoothie

Most nutritionists include at least one smoothie or juice in their daily diet, but I usually opt for chewing my food vs. drinking it. That being said, smoothies are a great way to incorporate some specialty superfoods into your diet that you wouldn’t normally include in regular meals. In this guest post, my colleague Sarah Bernache shares a superfood-loaded green smoothie recipe […]

Detox Daily with Lemon Water

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about what you should eat or drink when you first get up in the morning.

Healthy Bacteria

A hot topic in the health industry these days are probiotics. I first heard about them a few years ago on a commercial for Activia yogurt. From what I understood from the commercial; probiotics are good for you, and they make your stomach happy (scenes of belly’s dancing are shown throughout the commercial). After studying […]

Everything in Moderation

We enjoyed champagne, delicious pasta & red wine and some late night cocktails. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to getting back to my […]

Oven-Baked Fish with Garlicky Spinach

Lately I’ve been trying to incorporate more fish into my diet because it’s a really healthy protein, high in omega-3 fatty acids (which are an amazing preventative of cardiovascular disease, good for your brain & keep your skin looking youthful), and a good alternative to meat protein (chicken, beef, pork & lamb).

Detox – Day 3: Moroccan Stew Recipe

I woke up at 6am this morning and did some studying for my course. I just started the Anatomy section; it’s so difficult! Although some of the terms are coming back to me from my highschool biology class; I guess I was paying attention. Terms like: golgi apparatus, nucleus and cytoplasm. I was really hungry […]

Detox – Day 2

Day 1 of detox was actually quite easy. I would say the hardest part for me was avoiding coffee, a sweet after lunch (there are Lindor chocolates everywhere in my office!) and a glass of wine while I was cooking. But I felt really good when I woke up this morning; the most awake and […]

Detox – Day 1

I love the holiday season, but I don’t love how I feel after it’s over. I tried to stick to healthy food choices and I managed to squeeze in a workout here and there, but I definitely had my fair share of drinks, sweets and food. I realized that from December 16th – January 2nd […]
