80% Healthy Whole FoodsLet’s nix the believe in ‘good’ or ‘bad’ foods. Or in diets that cut out all our favourite foods. Let’s find BALANCE.Because food can taste delicious. Food is social and fun. Because life happens. And because you are not a robot.

Who knew?Tea is a great source of polyphenols, which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that support a healthy gut microbiome.Tea can also help improve digestion and reduce bloating and discomfort.

Sugar Swaps

We know we almost all need to work on cutting sugar. It makes such a huge difference. It’s in so many things nowadays, so become a label reader, you may be shocked at all the hidden sugars you find. Eg. in peanut butter, salad dressings, ketchup, bbq sauce, protein bars etc. Try making your own protein balls and bars when you can, that way you are in control, and it will likely taste a whole lot better too!

Fit Over The Decades

I don’t workout like I did in my 20’s. Here’s what to prioritize at each stage. We know daily movement is important for health at EVERY age.

Just Breathe

We are hearing about the Breathe and how it ties into aging well more and more these days. There is a lot of research on what, how and why we age the way we do.
