The Importance of Self-Care & My Favorite Ways to Show Myself Love

It seems only fitting to follow up my post about the glorification of being busy with a post all about self-care. Do you see a theme here? I think many of us would be much better off if we took more time to slow down and show ourselves some love. I truly believe that self-care is incredibly important. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is. It took me a long time to really swallow this truth – if you don’t take care of yourself first, there is no way you can fully be there for others. Without filling up your own…

My Packing Routine, Road Trip Hacks, & Trips to the Cabin

This week LITERALLY flew by in the blink of an eye – did that happen for anyone else? Since it was Labor Day on Monday, I went up to my family’s cabin last weekend to get a little vacay in. And by vacation, I mean – I wanted to go to a remote area where no one could bother me so I could get as much work done as possible. I left at the end of last week and ended up coming home midweek for the opening of Primal Kitchen in Culver City. I’m not really an “event” kind of…

In my last update, I explained that I decided to start from scratch with everything. It was very frustrating to have to start over after being so…

All About Candida Overgrowth

I have been getting a ton of questions about Candida overgrowth recently, and since I’m currently on another Candida protocol, I thought it only made sense to write a full blog post about it. Candida is so familiar to me that quite honestly, I forget that not everyone immediately knows what I’m talking about when I mention Candida! When I first began my mission to restore my health a few years ago, Candida overgrowth was the first thing I was ever “diagnosed” with. I went on a strict protocol that resulted in an extremely strong die-off reaction, but eventually made…

How to Make Your Workouts More Efficient

I used to feel like the length of my workout indicated its quality. Looking back, all I can do is shake my head at that idea. I could’ve gotten better results and had way more free time for other things if I had shortened my workouts and just been more efficient. It took me far too long to recognize that you can do a kickass workout in a pretty short amount of time. I’m not sure who started the idea that the ideal time for a workout is an hour, but that’s extremely arbitrary and untrue. As I’ve said many times, I think way…
