I’ve been promoting eating clean among my friends and family ever since I had my own “aha” moment over a decade ago. When I discovered that my low energy, fatigue, tummy aches and the blood sugar roller coaster I was on could all disappear just by eating real food, I knew I had found my calling to help others feel their best as well.
Our team is obsessed with self care. Living in NYC is draining. We’re constantly on-the-go rushing from one appointment to the other and there is never enough time in the day. That is why it is so important to make your wellness a priority. Our favorite treatment for self-case we recently discovered is the Infrared Sauna. Unlike traditional saunas that just heat the air and in turn the outer layers of your skin, the infrared sauna uses a light that heats up your body directly warming you from the inside out.
After many requests we are excited to announce that we will be starting to occasionally share recipes off our weekly menu. The dish were sharing today is not only seasonal but will also help to keep you warm from the inside out during the change in weather. Our Golden Milk Oats is made with anti-inflammatory super ingredients turmeric and ginger. Plus it's seriously easy to make and the perfect quick breakfast idea in your busy morning routine.
Autumn is the season of change. You might find yourself feeling more stressed or overwhelmed than usual, perhaps flighty, distracted, or anxious. You might start to notice dryer skin, achy joints, or irregular digestion. We want to counter these tendencies to keep our minds and bodies in balance this fall. That means favoring foods and activities that are warming, grounding, soft, and stable. Here are some tips to feel your best this season.
With Labor Day officially behind us, that means fall is around the corner and it's time for us all to get back to the grind before the holiday season is upon us. Whether ordering our prepared meal plans where you choose your meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner from our weekly menu, signing up for a cleanse program, or cooking throughout the week, keep your wellness a priority and make a commitment to yourself to eat clean. To help with this transition and make it easier to get back to your normal NYC routine, we've put together some ideas for quick breakfast and lunches.
Fish are often touted as one of the healthiest things you can eat. They’re loaded with essential nutrients like bio-available protein, fat-soluble vitamin D, and omega-3 fatty acids. But like choosing organic produce or pasture-raised meats, sustainable seafood is best for both your body and the earth.
At home, plants make up the majority of my diet. Dark leafy greens, seasonal produce, and plant-based proteins like nuts and seeds are consumed and enjoyed every day. Spain has been much the opposite of this. And yet... I feel fantastic. My digestion is great, my hair is shiny and healthy, my nails are strong and long, and my mood is awesome. The fact is, I’m eating a lot more nutrients of the kind that I don’t normally get in America. So what is it about these foods that are making me feel so good? Here are some of the nutrients I’m incorporating, and how you can get them too, even if you follow a 100% plant-based diet.
Have you been feeling cranky and irritable? Prone to gas, diarrhea or abdominal pain? Having acne breakouts on the regular? It might be time for you to look at your dairy consumption.
