What makes you happy? | Introducing Neily’s Happiness Jar

What inspired Neily’s Happiness Jar was a blog post. I thought it was the end of 2015 but upon reading my notes I came across this written January 3, 2016: “Read a post shared by Rebecca Scritchfield today about Elizabeth Gilbert’s happiness jar. Every day at the end of the day she jots down the happiest moment and puts it in a jar—an old apothecary jar. I might have to do this in the morning instead b/c that’s my quiet time. But I’m starting it today (and retroactively 1/1 and 1/2).”

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

Blueberries – the blue jewel! Celebrate its month and our nation’s birthday!

Red, white and blue – our nation’s colors. Two of those colors happen to be some of my favorite fruits! What’s better than strawberries and blueberries? Not much in my book. That’s why I take every opportunity to use them in one of my fave guilt-free desserts. Strawberry/Blueberry Shortcake with Whipped Topping. Continue reading

Vitamin D – What are the health implications?

Todd Whitthorne (former executive at Cooper Aerobics Enterprises) and I had a chat about vitamin D a few years ago. We made a series of 4 videos. In part 1 we talked about why vitamin D was (and is!) such a hot topic. Todd also told me how we know animals need it too! In part 2 Todd answered the question Do you need to supplement? and how do you know if you’re low?

In part 3 we’re talking about the health implications of low vitamin D and in part 4 we discussed what to do if you’re low. Continue reading

I write & make videos on what interests me in the nutrition world…

My mom made a comment about my Facebook page which got me thinking. (Don’t moms have a way of doing that—making you think?) I often post my Neily on Nutrition blogs and videos in addition to Mom and me MothersDay2014my endless posts and pictures about my Great Dane fosters on my private FB page. I also have my Neily on Nutrition business page, but Facebook has an algorithm and only a select few get to see those posts, unless I want to pay to boost my posts. (I don’t.)

Write before you bite – keeping a food journal

Years ago I had a client losing weight but hit a plateau. She was frustrated her weight loss had come to a halt. On several occasions I had asked her to keep track of her food so I could help identify where she might need to make modifications. She was very resistant to keeping a log—too busy, always forgot etc. At one appointment she said to me, “You know, I eat different when I write it down.”

I let that statement sink in for a moment and it didn’t take long for her to start laughing. She realized, that’s the point right? Indeed. It is. And eating different in a positive way. Continue reading
