Bloom

Spring everything!!! We had such great weather last week and weekend that everyone around here is giddy. It’s sort of like how hunger is the best sauce, withholding spring from us for so long has made everyone appreciate a 60-degree day so much! It’s like seeing a flower bloom after waiting for it to do so. Here are some of our meals and activities of late. Simple peanut butter toast + coffee on a day I had an earlier-than-normal workout planned. I had a post workout smoothie […]

Is Kombucha Actually Good For You?

A registered dietitian weighs in and ranks the options. How Healthy Is Kombucha? Kombucha is a great way to get an additional boost of probiotics, or the good gut microbes in your body.  However, it really depends on the brand you choose for the best benefits.

(I mean, “whoops!”) No one is judging here. At this point, you probably felt you needed the carbs and […]

Antioxidant Supplements Increase Mortality

In my video Industry Response to Plants Not Pills, I discuss a famous study that started so many down the wrong track. Thousands of men were followed for 19 years, and there was a stepwise drop in risk of lung cancer for smokers who got more and more beta-carotene in their diet. Researchers estimated this simply by adding up how much fruit, vegetables, and soup the men ate. So, did they start treating smokers with fruit, veggies, and soup? No, they gave them beta-carotene pills. However, those […]
