It’s time to update a post from a few years ago about my homemade trail mix. I’ve been making this for years and if you’re a client (or friend or family member) or if you have attended a talk I’ve given, you likely received a bag (or three) of Neily’s Rockin’ Health Trail Mix. I came up with the idea at the request of a client looking for a healthier afternoon snack, something other than plain nuts.
In my last post with Joanne “Dr. Jo” Lichten, PhD, RDN discussed Food as Fuel. In this post and video Dr. Jo gives advice on best ways to fuel your body. Dr. Jo has authored many books. Her latest is Reboot: how to power up your energy, focus, and productivity and available on Amazon.

Thanksgiving is almost here and for the 1 percent with celiac disease and estimated 6 percent with gluten sensitivity it undoubtedly will be a challenging holiday to maneuver. But quite honestly I’m not worried about them. They take their disease very seriously and don’t mess around. Plus there are numerous resources they most certainly have turned to. (This post is not for them.)
Little things add up. Can you think of the everyday activities you do now that used to require movement? If you’re of a certain age you will remember. Others might be scratching their head—life without a smart phone?! Continue reading
It’s amazing how many people are experts in nutrition. I was at a seminar last Saturday—totally unrelated to nutrition. (WordPress if you must know—I guess I’m a nerd at heart. Yep, spent a beautiful day geeking out indoors.)
Since I like to be a walking billboard wearing my Neily on Nutrition t-shirt I struck up a conversation with a woman visiting from California. As many people are prone to do, she shared a story of a friend.
The stories usually always start a certain way. I love them. Her friend read a book. Ah yes. And now they’re an authority on the diet du jour. Continue reading
Sadly, two out of every three Americans are overweight and one in three classified as obese. It is said 90 – 95 percent of those that lose weight will gain it back. If the statistics are so grim, why bother trying to lose weight? Certainly some people are successful. Read on, there’s good news! Continue reading
Previously I wrote about a common reason someone might hit a plateau in their weight loss efforts. This post is not about plateaus but just weight loss in general—why someone may not make the progress they feel they deserve.
Let me tell you about another client I had and not an uncommon issue I see amongst individuals doing all the right things but lamenting, “I just don’t get it. I don’t eat fast food, fried food, refined white flour, highly processed foods, etc. but I’m not losing weight. I should be losing weight eating the way I do.” Continue reading
Hit a weight loss plateau? I get that. It happens.
Years ago when I worked at Cooper Clinic I acquired a client when another staff dietitian left. The client had great success losing about 60 pounds in less than a year—just over one pound per week which was fabulous weight loss! But she had hit a plateau and her weight had not budged for several months. Continue reading
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 my 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.)
