Been Giving your Gut Special Attention Lately? Read On…

Those in quarantine for the last several months have been wrestling.

Wrestling with their mental health, physical health, spiritual, and emotional health.

And anyone who has tried to tackle all of them at once probably started right where they should have: the gut. The gut’s trillions of microbes are responsible for so many of the body’s systems, it doesn’t even make sense to tackle disparate pieces of health if you’re ignoring your gut health.

Intuitive Eating… Can it Work for You?

A diet is a diet is a diet, right?

Sort of…

A diet is just the class and kind of food that makes up your daily consumption roster. So even if you eat nothing but cookies and chips, that’s a diet.

Maybe you didn’t fully understand why… You’ve probably heard it all. “You’ll get a sugar rush!” “You’ll get pimples on your skin.” “You’ll grow a spare tire around your mid section.”

And while all of those things are true…

Our collective knowledge of the dangers of sugar (especially refined sugar cane, and less of the natural sugars occurring in fruits) has not stalled the growth of the more than $90 billion global sugar industry.
