You know how you *also* get more free shaker bottles than a human ever needs? Allow me to introduce you to THE BEST IDEA …

I feel like a broken record sometimes. And, I wonder if maybe the process of being injured or getting sick – or, ahem, going through a stressful time in life – could simply be accompanied by a *hall pass* for working out that extends however many days, weeks, or months past the pausing-situation so that we could all just stop …

New This Week / July 4, 2018

Last week, I realized what that *horrible* feeling was after the fact. You know, the feeling when you are both *paralyzed* and also anxious to take action. The feeling when you thought you had a good idea, but then something came along, or (someone?), or just the wrong information entered your consciousness and suddenly, SELF DOUBT sets in. I will …

Hi there! Big news over here… I’m writing another book! (spoiler alert – it’s on keto!) Back in 2011 when I was writing “Practical Paleo,” I was actually *eating* KETO paleo. Fast forward to now, and I’ve had a lot of experience with keto over the years, most of which I didn’t share anywhere partially because I was simply on …

Hey everyone! Hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend! Scott & I had a wonderfully relaxing weekend here at home — keeping up with our normal routine of walking down along the water here in SF, barbecuing with some friends, a trip to Costco to finally see my 21DSD Daily Guide book on the shelf, and setting up a …

New This Week / May 23, 2018

Hey everyone! I had a lovely couple of days away from home celebrating Scott & my 40th birthdays (which are 3 weeks apart) together in Monterey. I definitely would recommend the Intercontinental in Monterey for a stay –  it’s right in the middle of everything, plus robes. What more do you need? 😂 We had a ton of great meals, …

One of our most recent Balanced Bites Podcast episodes has really resonated with a lot of you so far, so I wanted to highlight it here as well. Dr. Jolene Brighten joined me on the show again, to talk about female hormones and post-birth control recovery syndrome.
