I remember when I first injured my back in 2005. I was a practicing chiropractor unable to practice. Ugh. I had a lot of cringe-worthy encounters with people who would chuckle and say, "Isn't it ironic, a chiropractor with a bad back?" I would try to smile...

  I've always been a bit of a grazer. My energy levels are more consistent when I eat frequently. Some may say I can get a bit "hangry" if left too long without food! As such, a coping strategy (for all) is that we keep (usually)...

Plato, it turns out, was a pretty smart guy. While "nerding" out on the weekend reading yet another science/biomechanics/health and wellness text, I came upon this quote by none other than the Greek philosopher Plato: "Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being,...

Some may say our dogs are spoiled. I don't know. I mean, isn't it normal for just about every life decision you make to start with how it impacts the dogs? When you're invited out for dinner, isn't your response, "Let me check with my...

This recipe is thanks to my friend Judy. Judy and her husband follow a plant-based, whole-food, low-fat diet, and she shared these yummy muffins with us following a (physically-distanced) hike. They're super satisfying, easy to make and have NO wheat, dairy, eggs or oil!  I restrained...

I have various love languages with my boys. Sometimes, they're shared activities. Sometimes (often) it's about food or our shared love (bordering on obsession) of dogs. With my son Will, an endearing part of our love language has to do with memes. Will will frequently send me...

  It gives me such reassurance knowing that I have healthy, nutritious food at the ready. When I'm running short on time, have late days/evenings at the studio or simply have no idea what to make for dinner, I absolutely love knowing that I have something...
