    You know what 23 almonds a day will do for you? The health benefits of almonds include lower blood sugar levels, reduced blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels. It’s a great “go-to” snack that doesn’t need refrigeration.

    Many of you know that Tony and I co-founded Compassion Alliance, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to supporting first responders on their journey to achieving optimal mental health.

    To all the dads out there taking care of business for their family – today is your day. We appreciate you! Go ahead, pour a cold one, kick off your flipflops and take a nap poolside. You deserve it! #fathersday ...

    How about all those quick stops for an organic juice blend, smoothie or shake? Did you know that these can be loaded with sugar and calories? Make one at home! Choose fresh veggies, a few berries and add a little almond milk, a dollop of peanut butter, a little bit of plain Greek yogurt. Adding frozen veggies add texture and a little protein powder makes for a balanced meal! It’s a healthy and delicious on-the-go breakfast that’ll give you energy and fill you up!

    If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a thousand times…We love kale! Kale is considered a superfood because it's a great source of vitamins and minerals. It also contains several other compounds that are beneficial for your health. It has very high levels of Vitamins A, C and K-one cup of chopped kale provides well more than your recommended daily allowance of these vitamins. We love it sauteed, in a salad, cooked in the oven to make kale chips or even in a smoothie. #HealthyAtHome

    To all the moms out there who love unconditionally, we see you. We appreciate you. We are so grateful for you. Today is all yours – Happy Mother’s Day! ...

    Food choices – let’s face it, sometimes they’re a challenge. We know what we SHOULD do, but don’t always make the right decision. Here’s a tip – nourish your body with smart food choices by doing meal prep for the week PLUS planning a “treat” day to the menu. Let’s not call it a cheat day. Having a regularly scheduled treat day each week can actually be good for weight loss by preventing binges, reducing cravings, providing a mental break from the norm, and boosting metabolism—if it's done in a healthy way. Schedule an appointment to learn more!

    The weather is heating up and increasing your water intake has never been more important. Tea and coffee (in moderation) can also be counted as “water”. How much water do you drink per day?

    Can we be real for a minute? They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but adding cooking to our “things to do” in the morning somehow doesn’t make the list. How many of you grab something quick before you run? Here’s a tip: If it’s not in the house – you won’t grab it. 😉 Stock up on healthy foods you can grab on the go, or better yet – ever make a frittata for supper? Save a piece for work the next day. It can be devoured cold or at room temperature for a healthy breakfast on the run!
