The warmer weather seems to be bringing more heat to my schedule – things are getting busy around here! I’ve somehow managed to clog up most of my weekday evenings this with soccer two days a week, teaching at our community college one evening, seeing private practice clients one evening a week and of course…the Bachelor on Monday nights with my girlfriends!
“What kind of tea would you like?”
This question is no longer simple, due to the increasing variety of teas on the market and their subsequent health claims. Green vs white tea? But what about matcha green tea? Should I just choose herbal tea? How about that new detox tea – does that work? Let me help answer these questions for you and help you make your best tea choice.
Confession – I’ve made this soup for the past 3 weeks. I just can’t get enough! I’ve always gravitated towards pureed soups (let’s be honest – probably since they’re so forgiving and idiot-proof!) however my boyfriend was requesting a heartier, chunky soup. He has a fear of being full…and the pureed soups weren’t cutting it!
I’ve come to accept that (for the most part) ain’t nobody got time to make eggs in the morning. What other high protein breakfast options are there? Greek yogurt…this is great but it can get old. Okay…chia seed pudding? Also great but unless it’s smothered in nuts, it’s not really too high in protein. Eggs? Oh wait, we’re too busy for eggs.
There are many ‘triggers’ that can bring on a headache– some are environmental, others hormonal. There is a fairly large chance that your headache is food related – diet often plays an important role in headache pathophysiology because 60% to 80% of the immune system is in the gut. When a reactive food or chemic is eaten, our immune system releases mediators, which in turn produce pathophysiologic effects aka headache pain.
