It's time to spice up your life! Summer months lend themselves to lots of fresh fruits and vegetables - but I often forget to enhance my meals with spices and herbs when fruits and veggies taste so great in season! Here's a sneak peak of a document my clients get along with their program in order to enhance antioxidants in their diet with herbs and spices!

It's time to break up with your dieting mindset. Things are not what you expected... it's not meeting your needs like it used to... and "hello, handsome" whole foods are the way.

Disclosure: I'm a full-fledged, passionate-about-work Dietitian, but really, my dream job is that of a world-travelling professional food critic. What a delight to my senses it would be to see the world AND to taste it! My mother chose "travel agent" as her second career, but has written about food in her travel journals with such precise detail that you could relive the flavours again and again. Through her continually chatting to family about various exot...
