Top Ten Weight Loss Tips

Weight-LossSwap your breakfast for a protien packed smoothie.  I love starting my day with a blend made with Avocado, Berries, Coconut Water, Spurilina & Kale ect.  This provides you with the essential fuel and fibre until your next meal without making you feel hungry.

Eat Real Carbs: Replace refined carbs (white bread, pasta, cereal, bagels ect ) with complex carbs like Fruit, Veg, Legumes, Wholegrains, nuts and seeds.  Fruit and Veg are high in fibre , which slow down digestion and promote stable blood sugar levels.

Drink Water: Hunger can be confused with dehydration.  So limit soda, booze & caffiene, drink  2 glasses of water before meals to zap the hunger pain, and have a glass of water instead of a snack.

Choose Healthy Fats: The body utilizes dieatry fat for energy, health of hair, skin, nails, vitamin absorbtion, and normal function.  Good fats promote several health benefits, protect against heart disease, cancer and lower blood pressure. Fab sources of good fat include avocados, nuts, seeds, olive oil and fish.

Emphasize Lean Protien: Our bodies require protien to continually renew and replenish our cells, stabalize our blood sugar, and give us energy.  Our bodies are made up out of amino acids that make up protien in our food. The best sources are fish, eggs, beans, nuts, seeds, and little amounts of free range chicken, grassfed beef and lean turkey.

Move your body: Daily movement boosts your mood, decreases body wieght, lowers heart rate, shrinks the stomach and gives you a good glow.


Keep Track of meals choices and balance calorie intake.  Plantbased foods are packed with nutrients and have lowest calories density which also curb cravings for sugar. The more the merrier

Learn to cook.  Home cooking allows you to control your portion sizes and quality of ingredients.

Get you ZZZ: Less than 5 hours a sleep at night can cause wieght gain. It can lead to inefficient body regualator of energy balance, metabolism and appetite.  Sleep more= Eat and Weigh less

Be a Food Detective: Keeping track of what you eat encourages you to choose healthier options and think twice about the twix bar ;-)



Is a raw food diet best for your skin?

Fresh-Veggies-istock-photo-1.24.11We’ve all heard the expression “you are what you eat.” When it comes to our skin, there may be more truth in that statement than you think! While skin is the body’s largest organ, including nutrients in our diets that are good for the skin is often overlooked. One diet that has been touted as a miracle worker for skin is the raw food diet.  If transitioning to a completely raw diet doesn’t sound like the right option for you, don’t worry!  Eating a diet that consists of just 50% raw foods is a great way to keep your skin looking its best. The enzymes in raw fruits and vegetables can keep the skin looking younger by improving elasticity. Fruits and vegetables, especially leafy greens and yellow or orange-colored veggies like bell peppers and carrots, are full of antioxidants that draw free-radicals out of the body. They also contain a high percentage of water, which helps keep skin hydrated and wrinkle free. The enzymes found in raw food can also help clear up acne, and even diminish acne scars. If fruits and vegetables are loaded with skin-healthy enzymes, why can’t we eat them cooked instead of raw? The answer is simple. Cooking food eliminates most, if not all, of the enzymes in food. While our internal health can still benefit from the vitamins and minerals found in cooked food, they’re not as beneficial for the skin as raw foods.

One really easy way to get a major dose of raw food enzymes and nutrients is to incorporate a green smoothie into your daily morning routine. This one is my go-to because it’s packed full of kale, but is also sweet and creamy from the coconut water, peaches, and avocado. I like to sprinkle in some Spirulina as well for a healthy dose of Vitamin B to keep my hair and nails strong. Green Smoothie for Glowing Skin Ingredients 1 cup frozen peaches 1 tbsp. Spirulina powder 3 cups kale ½ avocado 1 cup coconut water Instructions Put the ingredients in your blender, starting with the frozen fruit and then the Spirulina powder. Blend for 20 to 30 seconds or until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy By Integrative Nutrition

Get your greens

green-leafy-vegetable1“Green vegetables such as kale, broccoli and spinach are incredibly alkalising,  and   are packed with all sorts of essential vitamins (A, C, E, K and B6 to name just a few.) They help to build the blood aiding body oxygenation, and also supply the body with a wide range of necessary trace minerals and other phytonutrients. Broccoli, for example, supplies the body with a nutrient, sulforaphane; a chemical which, research has shown, offers some measure of protection against stomach ulcers, certain types of cancers an asthma. The plant kingdom abounds with copious quantities of plants that have tremendous healing power. Yet for a large percentage of the population the extent of their green vegetable consumption is the lettuce leaf on their burger!” Water for Health

Green Veg has had tremendous effects on my body physically, mentally and emotionally.  To reap the benefits of greens, I try to consume at least 2lbs a day by eating, juicing or snacking.  My skin is glowing, I am free from colds, and have loads of energy.





Achieve new wellness with baby steps, not deprivation

stock-footage-fall-woman-happy-throwing-autumn-leaves-having-fun-laughing-in-beautiful-colorful-forest-foliageMany people who wish to improve their health take an all-or-nothing approach. They quit their favorite foods overnight, work out incessantly, fill their minds with negative thoughts of imperfection, and occasionally even resort to diet pills or laxatives. Not only is this dieting approach stressful and cruel, it is also ineffective and produces only temporary results, if any. Real change happens gradually, with patience, commitment, and self-love. When you take the time to implement a healthy lifestyle—as opposed to forcing yourself through a quick fix before returning to your old habits—you will experience a transformation that leads to beauty which shines from the inside out.

Focus on one thing at a time:Don’t try to be a superhero and implement a dozen changes all at once—it doesn’t work! Start with simply drinking more water or eating more greens for a few weeks. Once you’ve done that, commit to working out 3 times a week in a form of fitness that you enjoy. The key is to not get overwhelmed and make each new healthy practice part of your “new normal” before making further changes. This may take some time, but it will be a much smoother transition and will help make the adjustments more permanent.

Be kind to yourself:Use supportive and loving language in relation to yourself, think positive thoughts, and take a break when you need it. Remember that the ultimate point of these efforts is that you simply want to feel good, so start by learning to feel good about yourself first, and see how naturally the outward changes follow to fit that uplifting new mindset.

Ask for help: Whether you need to reduce your workload at your job, ask your mother to watch the kids while you jog, or find a Health Coach to provide ongoing wellness support, don’t be afraid to ask for what you need. You might be surprised by how many people say yes when you just ask.

Be holistic:Authentic wellness is about much more than what you eat or how much you exercise. It’s about following your passion, having nurturing relationships, feeling comfortable in your home, and being balanced in all areas of life. Take a moment to ask yourself what might be out of balance for you, and what you can do to make it better. Sometimes what you really crave has nothing to do with what’s on your plate.

08APPE-superJumboSpicy Shakshuka is an eye-opening breakfast with eggs cooked in a fiery tomato sauce.


1 tablespoon olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 onion, cut into 2 inch pieces

1 red pepper, cut into 2 inch pieces

1 can whole peeled plum tomatoes with juice

1 teaspoon paprika, or to taste

4 eggs


Heat the vegetable oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, onion, and bell pepper; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the canned tomatoes, paprika stir, using the back of a spoon to break up the tomatoes. Simmer for about 15 minutes.

Crack an egg into a small bowl, then gently slip the egg into the tomato sauce. Repeat with the remaining eggs. Cook the eggs until the whites are firm and the yolks have thickened but are not hard, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.

The tomato base can be made ahead of time and the next morning you can reheat the mixture and add the eggs.
