follow Is There Such a Thing as TOO Much Avocado? October 16, 2018

I have a secret to share! I don't love to spend time in the kitchen, but I do love to eat healthy. Quite the conundrum, no? SO, given this I really try and create dishes that require little prep, not a lot of pots (hate cleanup), and can be ready to eat in less than 30 minutes. For my above creation I started by sauteing garlic in algae oil and grape tomatoes sliced in half.

OK, I Don’t Like Pumpkin…But Hello Fall! October 2, 2018

Well folks, it is officially the fall season and everywhere I look there’s a pumpkin something - pumpkin pie, pumpkin latte, pumpkin soup, etc. And guess what? I don’t like pumpkin, at all! Yes, I know how good for me it is; it’s packed with vitamin A and low in calories. But my taste buds are my taste buds. Personally, this time of the year, this gal is all about the apples.

The Defense of The Scooped Bagel September 18, 2018

Does anyone ever feel the need to defend their food choices? Well, we shouldn't have to!! Recently I had this discussion with someone who said that "scooping" a bagel is disordered eating! I should of just said, "I disagree" and left it at that. But instead, I felt the need to defend my choice. Hey - for me, scooping a bagel means more room for my protein choice (in this case tuna), less mess eating (I also like to eat it open-faced) and again MORE room for veggie toppings.

Is Coconut Oil Poison? September 4, 2018

For those of us who live in the east coast once Labor Day hits we feel like the summer is over. I KNOW, it doesn't officially end until Sept 21st; but for us that doesn't matter. Here' a picture of my feet and legs (bruised and all) digging into the sand. In the last "Keri Report" I had written that I hadn't made it ONCE to the beach. So guess what? I went and changed that. And now that the summer is over, I could only wish I had gone more!

Dear Keto Diet, Please Disappear! August 14, 2018

As I write this I am feeling the days of summer slowly coming to a close! How is it already the middle of August? Unfortunately, it is reminding me of all the things I said I was going to accomplish this summer and haven't: handstands without a wall, peacock pose (trust me, it's a hard one!), a relaxing day at the beach (I know - crazy that this hasn't happened yet and I'm so close to the water.)

WTF Is The Difference Between Keto and Paleo? August 2, 2018

This past weekend my brother-n-law, Paul, and his wife Mindy, were visiting and I made a barbecue for them along with some of my husband's cousins. Before entertaining I always ask the following of my guests: "Any food allergies, intolerance, or strong dislikes that I should know about?" (Yes, I do consider myself a good host!) Anyway, the answer was NO from everyone. It was when I decided on the menu, skirt steak and salmon, that Paul and Mindy informed me that they don't like salmon, BUT would be fine with just the steak.

The Shocking Foods I Eat! July 17, 2018

I don't know about the rest of you, but sometimes I really have NO idea what to cook for dinner! It's like, "just ate that" or "totally not in the mood". Who can relate? Anyway, the other day in my quandary, I realized I hadn't eaten scallops in like forever, so that solved the problem. Googled how to grill scallops (olive oil, salt & pepper, 3 minutes/side), looked in the fridge for a grain to cook (hello black rice) and picked up a tex-mex salad at the store simply because it called my name. Now, if I could only decide what to eat tonight? Hmmm, maybe I'll just go out!

Say Goodbye To Summer Bloating! July 3, 2018

As long as I can remember, I have started my dinner meal with a salad. (Thanks Mom & Dad!) Whether I am dining in or dining out - it doesn't seem to matter. It's also one of the first healthy eating tips I provide to my patients and the media. The reason for this is two-fold: 1. The fiber from the salad helps to fill you up, so you may be less likely to overeat your main meal; and 2. ALL the nutrients that a salad provides is priceless.

Can Probiotics Help You Lose Weight? June 19, 2018

"I can see for miles and miles".......some of you might not know these lyrics from The Who; but, for some reason this song just pops into my head when I see all these berries! Anyway, I LOVE berries, actually any kind of berry, I don't discriminate. And every year when they first arrive at the farmers market I get really excited. For me, this marks the beginning of summer and for all the other yummy summer foods that lie ahead! #TheLittleThings

Did You Say Cockroach Milk? June 5, 2018

In case you forgot, portion size matters! And not just in unhealthy foods, but believe it or not also in some of the healthiest of foods. Take salmon for example; it's packed with good-for-you nutrients, but calories WILL add up if your portion is too large. Pictured above is a piece of salmon that weighed 6 ounces UN-cooked; and that is even a little bit more than the recommended standard of 4 ounces.
