The seafood counter can be intimidating. Most people scan the case, looking over different filets and shellfish, wondering how they taste, how fresh they are, and of course, the best way to prepare them. Ironically, most seafood is very easy to prepare, especially on the grill. If the tropical temperatures are inspiring you to throw a filet on the grill for your next cook-out, here are some things to keep in mind as you select your favorite fish at the store and fire up the grill.
Valentine’s Day has come and gone and you’re still not in the mood. It’s easy not to feel frisky on Valentine’s Day when there seems to be a ton of pressure to be super sexy and have an expensive, passion filled night. The truth is no one feels sexy on cue, let alone when trying to make an intimate experience that matches up to society’s standards. It’s not only massively defeating, it’s bizarre, and yet we subject ourselves to that on some level.
Sex starts in your head. Stress, depression, anxiety and even a lousy day can kill the mood. If you’re not feeling sexy in your mind, you’re not going to get sexy vibes in your loins. It’s as simple as that. If you’re consumed with worry about the price of the lingerie - which makes you feel self-conscious anyway, not to mention is physically uncomfortable to wear - you’re not going to genuinely enjoy sex. If you can, set aside the things in your world that are stressing you out. That will do more to get you into "the mood" than any piece of lingerie.
The biggest lesson I have learned in all my years in the nutrition world: everybody eats.
Sure, that sounds obvious, but it’s so obvious that we overlook it and the real challenge that comes along with it is the struggle of eating well in a fast paced world full of options. While some sadly struggle with food scarcity, others struggle with making healthy choices and portion control. For this reason I am always in search of and sharing ways to make eating well realistic, affordable and delicious.
From my college days in the Pacific Northwest to my return to my home state on the range, Wyoming (it’s real, a state and not in Canada), to the quick minute I stopped over in Phoenix for 20 months to finally finding my forever hometown of Durham, North Carolina and all the places in between, I seek out these food gems.
Eating well is neither eating a diet exclusively of wheat grass, nor something that comes out of a packet. For shame, faux nutrition pushers, for shame! Kidding. Not judging. You do you…but for the love of all things good and kidneys, knock that malarkey off!
Ringing in the New Year means a fresh start to a new you. At least that is the ideology behind making New Year’s Resolutions. If you’re going into the New Year expecting to wake up a completely different person, you’re setting yourself up for failure. 36% of New Year’s Resolutionaries abandon their resolution before January is even over and worse yet, some never even start. Only a shocking 8% of people are successful in achieving their New Year’s resolution.
Don’t get stuck being one of the many who don’t meet their own mark. Set yourself up for success this year by eating truly healthy foods that fuel your mind and body. It’s no secret that the better nourished you are the better you’ll think and the more you’ll accomplish. You’ll feel better, sleep better and perform better at both the gym and the office... and to be honest the sack.
Eating well doesn’t need to be expensive, nor time consuming. Mimick the pros and eat like a nutritionist. They know the food that’ll give you strength at the gym and mental power in the boardroom to knockout that presentation.
Here’s a glimpse of foods you’ll find in a nutritionist’s kitchen that bolster health.
"Food is meant to be real! Real ingredients. Real, delicious flavor. Real nutrition."
And with that culinary professional Stephanie Lyman completely won me over. The swearing and delicious food to follow were the proverbial icing on the cake. Real recognizes real.
Busy in the process of revamping 8 years of nutrition material, plus new content and developing over 200 nutritionist created, tested and approved recipes, I found it was time to call in a pro to assist me.
Truth be told I'm not sure what I hate more: baking or the fact people think baked goods "have to be" bad for you. As someone who has no interest in baked goods, I know I have no business recipe testing them. My clients deserve the best and that includes recipes they can actually create and love.
