I [Heart] Carbs

So, unless you haven't picked up a ladymag in the past year, you know that juicing is this big deal right now. I think juicing can be a positive thing to give your body a break and a quick hit of vitamins and minerals, but I believe fruits and veggies have fiber for a reason.

The Perfect (Healthy) Cup of Coffee

I love my morning coffee. The smell. The taste. The ritual. But all cups of coffee are not created equal, and I'm partial to cold-brewed coffee. You see, when you heat coffee beans, they become acidic and bitter. And that extra acid isn't good for your system -- it creates inflammation and can funk up your stomach. Plus, heating water requires electricity while cold brewing is carbon-neutral. Overall, it's a much gentler process and results in a milder cup of joe -- for you and the planet.   read more

It's Easy Eating Green (Especially With a Blender)

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I like easy. I enjoy getting a little domestic -- cooking, gardening -- and I love eating healthfully, but suffice it to say I don't have all day. On days when I'm filming, I work super-long hours; I have a child who thrives on routine and gets bigger and faster every day. Time is not an unlimited resource.   read more

My Slim-Down, Get-Glowing Detox

I knew I needed a change when I hopped on the scale a week after Thanksgiving and the number flashed higher than it had ever been. Granted, it was a few days after I had two Thanksgiving dinners in less than 24 hours, but the persistent tightness of my clothing and my general sluggishness suggested that the extra pounds were more than just a few big dinners. After catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror after a shower one night, I thought to myself, 'I can't possibly be pregnant ... right?' Nope. My food baby had just become a permanent fixture.   read more
