WHAT We EAT Is HOW We FEEL.

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you will already know my thoughts on the link between our food and our mood. Plenty of research abounds about the food-mood connection, the gut-brain connection, and the link between the food we eat and the state of our mental, emotional and physical health. We…

Easy, Tasty DINNER In A SNAP!

A few weeks ago, I shared this recipe on my Facebook page. Roger and I had just returned home from traveling, and we hadn’t yet done a full grocery shop. He opened the fridge and said, “Should I go out and grab something? We have no food….” I told him to get out of the…

Treat Yo Self!

“Treat Yo Self!” I see this slogan on everything from ice cream shop A-frames to memes on Facebook where people are gobbling up slabs of chocolate cake or guzzling back entire bottles of wine. And I GET it. I mean, I used to BE one of those people telling people, “C’mon…just one won’t hurt” or…

Mothering. And Gratitude.

Roger and I want to simply say, “thank you”, for the gift that is The Healthy Brain and Body Show. We birthed this baby back in 2017 and we couldn’t have imagined all it would become until it hit toddlerhood. This year was the most INCREDIBLE year yet, and I cannot begin to count the number of deeply…
