Champagne problems…

Monday morning, I rose up from bed with an itch in my belly along with probably a dozen Nymphalidae butterflies (No, not just any butterflies… they’re the prettiest, I think). I said my thank yous, meditated, packed a fridge full of vegetables and fruits, put them in ice coolers and loaded the car with what […]

Channel into discovery

  On my way back home from the holiday trip this year, I treated myself to a little inspiration packed in the shape of a magazine (two of them to be exact). I always seem to be drawned to OK! And People Magazine, but this time of the year… I needed a little more umph […]

Nature vs Nurture

The eternal psychological debate about the why a person comes to be successful can sometimes be reduced in a simple dilemma: are we born with it or are raised to become successful? It has been a wonderful experience to recognize both spectrums of this hypothesis. On one hand, you have the people who have had […]

Clean Eating

The fact that there are over 38 million hits on google server when you type in the search engine: “clean eating”, makes me ponder about this huge dietary movement going on. As a student of nutrition, major aficionado on health and wellness and, happy cook, I look forward to yummier habits everyday. Thousands of books […]

Anatomy of a Health Coach

With more than 2,000 people attending (and other thousands live streaming) the IIN conference, I felt chills all over. We all held our palms over our heads, our mouths and our hearts and… next thing I know, the lyrics of “Living on a prayer” became a mantra the thousands of us sang to and we […]

A tailored life…

Every now and then I see myself very clear headed and stubborn (at times) with decisions I make;  everyday choices included. However, when I hear myself complaining and just going over the same sad song over and over again, I realize that’s when I am stirring very far away from what I believe to good. […]

A special day!

So, today is a very happy day indeed. Today we celebrate World Vegetarian Day (or maybe there’s just an I instead of a we). In any case, this amazing day was established by the North American Vegetarian Society in 1977. Which “brings awareness to the ethical, environmental, health and humanitarian benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle.” […]

Gut grief

Trying out a new diet is not to be taken lightly. At IIN I learned about bio individuality; “one person’s food is another person’s poison”. So, in other words… no one diet works for everyone. Hence, why we sometimes get frustrated when a fad diet works for someone and it doesn’t work for us. I’ve hear […]

The road more traveled nowadays…

I have been blessed in more ways than one and I found that living in a country so rich in culture, gastronomy and nature has been one of the Universe’s biggest gifts to me. I got to experience the world at a very young age through the goggles of an adult (or so I thought) […]
