I’ve gotten several requests to write a blog post on how to prevent hangovers and how to quickly recover the next day using healthy cures as opposed to the not-so-great options many people grab after a night of drinking.  Everyone has heard at one point, “moderation in everything”, and as much as I hate to say it- yes, even the things we love.  That, inevitably, includes alcohol.   Obviously, the less amount of cocktails, the less chance of experiencing that wonderful feeling we call a hangover. keep reading

Cherry loveOh, I just love cherries!  Love them so much that they are my first fruit spotlight on the blog.  I typically do a list of certain foods like a top 5 or top 10 list, but since I currently have a major crush on cherries, I thought I’d dedicate a post just to these beauties. The summer is peak season for cherries, which means enjoy them as much as you can…right now!  It’s typically ideal to eat fruits and veggies that are in season, however, you can still enjoy cherries during non-summer months by choosing the organic frozen cherries.  I love both fresh and frozen cherries and often add frozen sweet dark cherries to my smoothies!  keep reading

5 Ways to Add Flavor to Your WaterWell, summer is now here!  At least in hot, sunny Dallas, TX.  Although it’s not officially summer until June 21, I say let’s just begin summer early. There’s nothing like a fun, family & friend filled, barefoot in the grass, toes in the sand kind of summer.  With all the summer activities, play and warm weather, we can easily get dehydrated…which means we need to drink up. Getting plenty of water is so important for our health for so many reasons. It helps our skin stay hydrated and clear, assists in the digestion process, flushes out toxins, helps our body perform all of its necessary functions, and helps us lose weight. If you’re not drinking enough water, you may notice poor digestion, headaches and migraines, fatigue, breakouts, inability to lose weight, and even bad breath. keep reading
