My Kids Love this Healthier French Toast

I’m always experimenting with ways to make healthier versions of favorite foods, especially breakfast foods.

Because of this, it takes less quinoa protein to meet one’s protein need than wheat protein. Quinoa is easy to digest and naturally contains no […]

In my integrative nutrition program there is a lot of talk about superfoods, and I’ve been having fun integrating them into my nutrition regimen. Now that I am coaching others on improving health and wellness, I’ve started talking to clients about superfoods too – but describing them and the many unusual names is not always […]
