National Blueberry Month – a month to celebrate the blue gems

blueberriesCan you believe it’s July? It’s also National Blueberry Month. As a confessed and proud blueberry addict, I’m here to show you a couple of ways to celebrate. If you follow me you know I write about these little blue gems every year. (Blueberries – the blue jewel and Confessions of a blueberry addict—where I bought 34 pints for $40)

They’re in season now so don’t miss the chance to get them at a great price. I’ve been buying amazing blueberries for several years from Aldi. At the time of this writing, $1.19 per pint. Wow. (That’s up from the price they were a few weeks ago, 99 cents!) Continue reading

9 sugar sources in a healthy cereal?

Grocery shopping has its challenges—especially when faced with product marketing intended to help, but does it really?

I created a videosugar cereal free from 101 artificial_neily after seeing a package of cereal that looked so healthy because it was free from 101 artificial preservatives & ingredients.

Nutrition is a science, not an opinion. Registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN)* – trusted nutrition expert

nutrition science

In addition to my nutrition coaching business, I love to teach and have been an adjunct professor teaching Principles of Nutrition since 1998. Because I encourage communication in the classroom, my students don’t hesitate to ask questions. I don’t always have the answers, but I’m committed to finding out what’s known and new in the field. For example, a while back a student asked about oil pulling. What? I had never heard of it. I thought she was joking when she explained what it was. Continue reading

How to eat a lot and still lose weight

I love to eat. I love good food. And I like to eat a lot of it. But that’s a problem because I can’t. Not if I want to maintain a healthy weight. Many years ago I learned to volumize food. It’s a concept more common and popularized thanks to the terrific work of Barbara Rolls, PhD, her research and many subsequent books on Volumetrics, her first written in 2000. The Ultimate Volumetrics Diet: Smart, Simple, Science-Based Strategies for Losing Weight and Keeping It Off is more recent. It’s not a new concept to lose weight. Volumetrics is based on the idea that people tend to eat about the same quantity of food per day, regardless of calories. Continue reading
