Leafy Greens…oh so good…and so good for you!

The last couple of weeks my CSA box came filled with a variety of green leafy things…Kale, Chard, curly Endive. Things I honestly would pass by in produce aisle.  And yet–things that are chalk full of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and fiber that have continually shown to help prevent digestive tract cancers.  Chard and Kale are particularly nutritious, packing a punch...

She...

You Can Do it All – Or Can You?

It means adrenal fatigue and I got knocked out with it, and almost literally when a couple weeks ago my body decided to take a mandatory break – just as a Level 1 athlete was dead lifting his previous max for a set of 5 right in front of my bewildered eyes.  Maybe it was the athlete’s impeccable form during this unthinkable endeavor that took me by such surprise that I almost hit the...
