Enlightened Ice Cream: Guilt-Free and Delicious (I Swear!)

I love ice cream, but if I can it’s the one thing I avoid. It’s pretty much the worst thing you can eat. Full of fat, cholesterol, and sugar it has no redeeming qualities. I had some Haagen Dazs on my trip to Hong Kong a few weeks ago and I love sugar, but I […]

Choffy: Healthy Brewed Chocolate

Brewed chocolate!? That’s right, Choffy is made of roasted and ground cocoa beans and you brew it just like coffee. Unlike coffee however it’s full of antioxidants (more than in a serving of blueberries), and doesn’t give you the caffeine crash that you sometimes get with coffee (it does naturally contain a gentle stimulant called […]

Ideally we would all get the essential nutrients we need from food, but that isn’t always feasible. While the evidence is murky when it comes to the efficacy of supplements, if you’re at risk for falling short on some key nutrients it’s worth considering consulting a physician or registered dietitian about starting a supplement plan.

Move Over Gwyneth Paltrow… A Guilt-Free Summer Recipe To Try Now

Inevitably this time of year we’re bombarded with people telling us things we should do to get a “summer body.” It’s pretty lame if you ask me and it’s completely unrealistic for anyone to go from a diet based heavily on fried and processed foods to a clean one based on fresh produce overnight. There […]

EBOOST: Natural Energy

A bunch of the trainers and gym go-ers at my gym drink EBOOST pre-workout for extra energy. I don’t ever crave these kinds of energy drinks, but given how health conscious all the people I see drinking EBOOST are I was intrigued. The line also has everyone from Oprah to Heidi Klum to Jillian Michaels […]

Hum Nutrition

I’m on the fence when it comes to vitamin supplements. For every study that says they work, there’s one that says all you do is pee them out. Obviously it’s best to get everything you need from the foods you eat, but that isn’t necessarily always possible (and if you live in a city like […]

Why You Should Be Using Mouthwash and What to Look For

I’m not sure if this is exclusively a New York anxiety thing, but I had to get a gum graft done and a bunch of my friends have had to have the same procedure. This isn’t something people usually need until they’re 50-60 I’m told and occurs when your gums start to wear down. In […]
