Countdown to Turkey Time

Thanksgiving in our family is a very big deal. We love to cook and Thanksgiving celebrates these traditions, so this year I am sharing our menu with you. We start planning about a month in advance, debating which family favorites we'll make and which new recipes to. We start cooking the day before and don't stop until there's a beautiful spread to enjoy on Thanksgiving Day. Sometimes it's hard to rein in all of our favorites, for example there are years that we've had three different kinds of stuffing! Thanksgiving is a day when it is both not about the food and all about the food. I love Thanksgiving because it brings back memories of cooking with my Grandma, and now that my kids are cooking with their Grandma, it's a wonderful feeling. I also love Thanksgiving because the foods served are surprisingly good for you! Everyone thinks of Thanksgiving as being terribly overly indulgent, and I suppose it could be, but I prefer to focus on all of the unprocessed, nutrient-dense, colorful and full-of-antioxidants foods that could be included in your Thanksgiving menu. To fully enjoy the coming week, focus on family and friends, enjoy the beautiful day and be grateful for the life and body you have.

Living detoxified means maintaining habits that support liver health in order to avoid the poor health consequences associated with chronic inflammation and oxidation, such as weight gain, diabetes, fatigue, headaches, autoimmunity and depression. Take it step-by-step and work your way towards a detoxified lifestyle. ...

Best Reusable Water Bottle

Did you know that dehydration is associated with mood swings, fatigue and higher levels of hunger? Often I hear from clients and patients that they didn't realize how poorly they felt until they began drinking enough water every day. The simplest way to ensure that you get enough water every day is to carry a reusable water bottle. You need about 1 ounce of fluid per pound of body weight every day to stay well-hydrated. ...
