Getting to the Bottom of Emotional Eating

Getting to the Bottom of Emotional Eating

At a pretty young age, I learned that food was a way to deal with stress and other unpleasant emotions.  My father passed away when I was very young and although I didn't have a name for it then, I started to watch my mom mindlessly plow through bags of chips, candy and other comfort foods when she was tired, sad, stressed or lonely (and as a newly single mom, she felt a lot of those emotions).  As I got older, I started turning to food when I felt stressed, bored, neglected, sad or lonely.  It took me a long...

Two Crowd Pleasing, Healthier Options for Holiday Parties!

We all know that this season can be a veritable minefield of sugary/boozy drinks, cheese platters and cookie plates.  It can be really tough to choose between those tempting "treats" if your only other option is a sad platter of baby carrots with some drippy ranch dressing.  If you are hosting a party OR invited to a party, prepare one of these two delicious (and better-for-you options) so that you will have something hearty and satisfying that won't kill the progress you have been making!   Chicken sausage stuffed mushrooms: 24 cremini or white button mushrooms, cleaned and de-stemmed1lb loose...

Keeping Sugar Cravings at Bay this Holiday Season-Five Quick Tips!

I don't know about you but every year, starting at Thanksgiving, I find so many more chances to eat gobs of sugar, drink more alcohol and generally let my self-care routine go out the window.  Of course we all want to go to the office X-mas party and enjoy mom's homemade eggnog but this IS the month where you decide how you start 2017 (do you want to feel healthy, light and energized or like a hungover sloth who now has an extra 5-7lbs to drop?)  In recent years, I've found a way to enjoy all that the holidays bring without...
