Are You a Savvy Food Shopper? How Do You Know?

Are you a smart food shopper? Or do you find yourself giving in to temptation half way into a grocery trip; grabbing foods on impulse because they just looked so irresistible? If you fall into the latter category, you are in good company. Most Americans want to shop healthy and be in control of what they eat, but much of our food decisions are out of our control. I recently presented a webinar with my fellow health coach and good friend, Mary Ellen Zung. In our presentation we talked about the dangers of sugar and how it can negatively affect our bodies. If you are interested in hearing more on the topic, you can listen to it here. Read on to learn how to be a better shopper! Read More

Why You Should Be Eating Breakfast

Food is our fuel and our medicine. Just like a high octane fuel keeps your car engine running smoothly, the quality of the food you eat will help determine how well you perform, how much energy you will have, and how healthy you will be. Recently, I was invited to speak to the students of School District 36 for Health and Wellness Day. It was a great opportunity to talk with young adults about the importance of fueling up their bodies by eating a healthy breakfast every morning, and what a good healthy breakfast might look like for them. We also talked about ways to make healthier food choices using Nutrition Facts labels and The Altman Rule. Ever heard about the Altman Rule? It is a super quick way to determine if the foods you are eating are the healthiest ones for you. Read on to find out how you can use this simple tool while shopping for your next meal! Read More

The Sugar Show

I recently attended this presentation by Dr. Lynn Gettleman-Chehab that was sponsored by the Childcare Network of Evanston. Dr. Gettleman-Chehab's talk supports what I tell my clients about the danger of sugar, especially sugary foods. Below is a video of her talk that I think you will find interesting, and maybe even surprising! CNE hosts "The Sugar Show" for local families Did you know most sodas have more than 40 grams of sugar per serving -- the same as 2 full-size chocolate bars? On Wednesday, Aug. 12, CNE hosted a one-hour, free workshop presented by Dr. Lynn Gettleman-Chehab that dug deep into how much added sugar is in the food and drinks we consume, and what we can do to live healthier, more energized lives by seeking out alternatives.
