Better Breakfasts for a Better Body and Brain!

Better Breakfasts for a Better Body and Brain!

Everyone has been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but I think one thing that many of us miss is why it is so important to start the day off with a healthy and hearty meal. Here are some great reasons why you should be eating breakfast: it helps memory, improves mood, increases energy, helps to maintain weight or even to help lose it.

Even if we do find the time and motivation to make breakfast, most of the foods advertised as “healthy” are actually anything but healthy, full of artificial sweeteners, artificial colors and bad fats. What you eat for breakfast sets the tone for your day. It is equally important to eat something as it is to make sure that it is a healthy. Here are some of our favorite ways to start the day off right!

Does My Baby have Colic?

The first few weeks with a newborn is a magical time. It can also be a challenge for some parents, when there is prolonged crying and you have no idea how to soothe and calm your baby. Babies have different cries to communicate their needs and wants, but prolonged crying for 3 hours at a time, is a sign that something more serious may be going on with your babies’ health. Colic is not detrimental to the health of a baby, but it can place a great deal of stress on the parents and other family members. About 10-20% of infants, less than 4 months of age, suffer from infantile colic.

The Truth about Sugar

The Truth about Sugar

Natural Sugar vs refined sugar.  They are different right?  RIGHT?!?!

 

Although the harmful health effects of sugar are now indisputable, we are still eating an incredible amount of it.  In fact, the average Longmont resident consumes three pounds of the sweet white poison per week!

It’s easy to understand why. Sugar is tasty, and it’s addictive (and did i mention tasty?).  Well the addictive nature of sugar, when you study brain scans, suggest sugar is just as addictive as cocaine.  YIKES!

What is POTS?

Ever heard of the syndrome, POTS? Most people would say no, though it has been rising in renown in the last decade. POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) is a silent yet debilitating disease that can be near impossible for the outside world to see, let alone recognize and diagnose.

5 Things I Wish I had Known Starting the Whole30

5 Things I Wish I had Known Starting the Whole30

I like to consider myself pretty savvy in the world of healthy cooking and living a healthy lifestyle.  When I first read through the Whole30 by Melissa Hartwig, it sounded like something I could complete no problem.  No sugar? No Problem!  No Carbs?  I really don’t love bread or pasta anyway.  I dabbled in the recipes, but as someone who already ate a copious amount of Zoodles, switching to vegetable based options didn’t sound like it would be life changing or very difficult.  For the record – I was very wrong.

1.     Actually set a conscious date to start.  DO NOT wake up sick one day and go, well, I guess today is the day I start.  That is exactly what I did, and honestly, I think it was a big portion of my downfall.  The Whole 30 takes time.  It takes meal prep, mental prep, conversations with your s/o about what is going to be changing over the next 30 days.  I decided on a whim, when I was sick, without taking into account that my anniversary, Easter, and a race would all fall within my 30 days.  That was just poor planning on my part
