5 Tips to Save Your Mealtime Sanity

Posted by

Back to school (or any routine) can be welcome and overwhelming at the same time. The lead-up to to the first day is exciting and worrying, but there’s time to prepare. Time to plan the first lunch, time to pack the backpack and get the kids to bed at a decent hour. As the week goes on, forms come home, homework, after-school activities kick in and boom, you’re back in the thick of routine no matter how much you long for your lounge chair on the beach or cottage dock.

Here are my top 5 tips to keep that organized momentum going as you hit week two, five and even ten.

Jerry Agar’s Diet Makeover!

Posted by

Last Friday, I started NewsTalk1010’s Jerry Agar on his new eating program and so far he has been doing great! He’s been ready for this for about a month and as I highlighted on the show last week, when you’re ready to make a change, the follow through and success is much better than if someone tells you to make a change. I’m proud of him and grateful to be on this journey with him. No one ever regretted eating better!

I did have quite a few emails asking about what Jerry’s doing so here’s a quick rundown:

I changed it up a bit from last week’s blog. He is following the Transform30 program and he’s taking Juice Plus+ capsules that are full of 27 fruits, vegetables, and berries. Juice Plus+ is a blend of juice, that’s made into a powder, by a cool and very high-tech process, then encapsulated. It offers a very digestible and easy way to get loads of fruits and veggies in, without having to juice pounds and pounds of produce, or clean the juicer! I gave him this because he doesn’t eat well enough to support his body. He needs antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and enzymes. That’s what he’s going to get with his daily Juice Plus+ capsules as well as improving his diet.

Happy New Year!

 

Well, it’s the New Year. Again.

Where did 2016 go? I think I just blinked and there it went.

If you’re like most, you’re feeling motivated to do something different: change your mindset or habits, take up something new that you think will help you feel better. I feel motivated after a busy December and then a few chill out days after all the festivities. I am ready to get back on track with a bunch of things. One of them is of course, is food. After the overindulgences of the holiday season, I remember how crappy one can feel eating and drinking too much, just how addictive sugar is, how bloated I feel when I eat wheat, while neglecting fruits and vegetables.

2017 is your year to get back on track!
