Your diet should consist of what you do eat, not what you don’t. Just sayin’

Today’s Healthy Dose – Happy Spring Equinox!
No matter the weather or where you are, go outside and take in a deep, deep breath of fresh spring air. Your lungs are happier already!
Today’s Healthy Dose – Be A Real Foodie
If it’s not a real food, and it doesn’t tastes incredible, just don’t eat it!
Today’s Healthy Dose – Wild vs Farmed
So much mis-information, so little time. While some farmed seafood may be better for the environment, most is not great for your health. Do yourself and the planet a favor… look for sustainable and wild caught. It’s fin-fin! (Sorry, I couldn’t resist)
Today’s Healthy Dose – Fake It ’till You Make It
Not motivated to exercise today? Fake it! You heard me. Pretend your motivated. What is the first thing a motivated you would do right now? Would you put on those walking shoes? Get out that yoga mat? Fire up your music? Just do that one thing and see what happens. 🙂
Today’s Healthy Dose – Like Chips?
Try cut radishes with sea salt, or popcorn with real butter and sea salt instead. You’ll get less calories, more nutrients, essential minerals and that salty crunch you crave!
Today’s Healthy Dose – Give Your Skin a Workout
Take a few minutes every week to exfoliate. Whether it’s a good scrub with a washcloth, a once over with the loofa, or a luxurious aromatherapy sugar scrub, you’ll slough off all of those dry skin cells, helping your skin to renew itself. Trust me, you’ll both be happy with the results 🙂
Today’s Healthy Dose – Organic vs Whole
Some use these terms interchangeably. I like to think of the term whole foods as inclusive of organic. For me a whole food is one that was grown as nature intended it to be grown without any “enhancements” or “modifications” or “additions”. All purpose flour can be organic, but is it whole? Absolutely not.
Today’s Healthy Dose – Muscles Between Your Shoulder Blades
Yup! You have muscles there. Focus on using them whenever you sit. You’ll breath easier, your posture will improve and you’ll feel instantly taller. All good things!
Today’s Healthy Dose – Don’t Just Sit There
Flex! Flexing various muscle groups during the day can improve your posture, balance, strength, body awareness and blood pressure. Your body isn’t picky…squeeze something.
