chocolate zucchini bread and being a locavore

There is all kinds of hype around the whole organic movement. Is it something to buy into, or is it just another marketing catchword like "gluten-free" that doesn't necessarily hold any merit in terms of nutrient density? Well, my goal with this post is to help clarify, answer your questions, and hopefully, help you understand [...]

The process of finally starting the journey of allowing myself to heal over the past month and a half has been really rough for me for a few reasons. One, I am addicted to exercise, and letting go, taking true 100% full time off has been a struggle (imagine a whole new kind of withdrawal). [...]

A special delivery came yesterday, which provided a much needed mood-boost. Chocolate (especially Love Bean Fudge) and a good book can heal most problems, after all... So now I finally get to crack into  Liz Wolfe's book Eat the Yolks. It's as awesome as I knew it would be. A fellow English major, the girl can write, and [...]

chocolate banana muffins and why sharing is caring

I have a little extra time to cook, bake, and experiment in the kitchen right now since I can't train because of my neck.... This creates a bit of a conundrum, though, because eating baked goods all day when I'm not working out at all... Well, it goes without saying that that just won't do. [...]

As some of you may know, I am currently dealing with two herniated disks in my cervical spine. I finally went and got an MRI and EMG after about a year and half of back, neck, and now head pain, and got some answers from Dr. Millar with SOAR. I am not going to sit [...]

Sorry for the lack of posts recently. I am having some struggles with REALLY bad back, neck, and head pain. The good news is that I still had a blast working the CrossFit Level 1 Seminar this past weekend in San Jose. The participants were just so awesome, and as always, I got to work [...]

So I have officially made the decision to begin The Certified Nutritionist Consultant Program at the Natural Healing Institute of Naturopathy. It'll be a distance learning program done at my own pace (which means pretty fast because I want this bad), and I am SO excited. The coolest part is that I will have the ability [...]

soft boiled eggs and eating the yolks

I have gotten a lot of questions about egg whites vs egg yolks and "what should I eat?" We get a lot of mixed information on a daily basis about cholesterol, and I think most of the blame gets thrown on the egg yolk. Poor egg yolks. The bias against saturated fat and cholesterol has [...]
