Why Eat Grass-Fed?

May 26, 2017

Many people today ask, is grass-fed just another way to label a product to get the consumer to spend more?

The answer here is NO! There is a real difference between traditional grain-fed cattle and grass-fed cattle. The majority of beef on a person’s plate today comes from grain-fed cattle, and in case you don’t know, the cattle are raised in less than natural settings. In terms of the way that the cattle are raised, the living and dieting conditions of grain-fed cattle are exponentially different from those of grass-fed cattle.

Five signs your may have adrenal fatigue

October 20, 2016

The dreaded 3pm slump. I can't tell you how many times I've gone seeking a cup of coffee or a chocolate bar at this bewitching hour, promising myself I'll abide by a 10pm bedtime. But what's the point when you're tossing and turning for over an hour? Getting out of bed the next morning feels impossible, and when you do, the brain fog is so dense you can't help but wonder, "Am I depressed? I don't think I'm depressed, but..."

The Power of being Bold

October 19, 2016

While the Guinness factory in Dublin may seem like an unlikely place to get a huge jolt of inspiration, that is exactly what it provided upon my recent visit.

Balancing healthy living in a busy world

May 26, 2016

I had quite the fantasy about being my own boss. When I was planning to quit my corporate job, I envisioned a world that was far more relaxed, a routine of sleeping in, going on a lazy morning walk, posting a #butfirstcoffee post around 9:45 AM and then in an organized and calm fashion, working a bit, being rewarded a ton, practicing yoga, having a romantic candlelit dinner with my husband (that I cooked completely from scratch, of course), and going to sleep easily feeling rested, accomplished, and content.

Sleep sweeter tonight

March 16, 2016

Why has sleep become one of our modern casualties?  We know that sleep is important and that without the recommended 7-8 hours our decision-making, emotions, and even physical health can all suffer. According to the NIH, without sufficient sleep, the body doesn’t repair itself properly, isn’t able to solve problems as easily or balance hormones effectively, and the immune system can become weakened.
