Empower yourself to make smarter food choices by knowing more about the foods you eat. What are good fats to include and bad fats to keep out? Can healthy and sweet go together? How can we fuel ourselves and stay energized and nourished without forgoing great taste?

Dr. Kurt Strecker stirs up the pot and give us a new outlook on healthy foods.  He declares “Fat is not the enemy!” and talks about ways to get started in changing up your food routine. Dr. Kurt also claims that by denying yourself and feeling deprived you can actually eat more.

Then we sizzle with Terry Walters  in the kitchen with her delicious and “cleaner” recipes. Terry debuts her yummy new Blueberry Tart and talks about other tasty recipes which are more sustainable.

“We do ourselves the biggest service by going closer to the source  and recognizing how food grows…. and foods that are nutritionally void fall by the wayside. This supports our good health and the health of our environment. “

I’m Out of Touch with My Body!

It’s that time of year again … when we think about how we look and how we will ever get back in shape again.

Since you’ve ignored it for a while, probably all winter or longer, maybe it’s time to check in with your body.

Just like calling an old friend who you haven’t talked to in a while and dealing with the initial feelings of guilt for not being connected and fear that there will be no response, you know that once you do get in touch it will be a good thing. Do you want to feel your body move again and nourish it with healthy foods?  Then it’s worth it to reconnect even if it’s been some time.

Join me and my fellow radio host on the Her Insight Network,  Andie Hight, as we explore our body, mind and spiritual connection. Through her own journey to identify with her body after a life-threatening illness, Andie brings insight which goes deeper than just trying a new diet or exercise regime to get back to feeling comfortable with your body again. It’s about awareness to manifest the physical body that you can have and loving the skin you’re in.
