    Ep. 81 - Three Easy Ways To Find New Healthy Recipes For Your Weekly Meal Plan

    Welcome to "Be Your Best Self Help Chats," where we engage in weekly, conversations about taking control of your health. This week's discussion revolves around a question I encounter almost daily: "I need new healthy recipes." But here's the twist—instead of handing you a cookbook or recipe guide, I'm going to reveal three easy ways for you to discover recipes that align with your unique definition of healthy.

    First things first, healthy means different things to different people. For me, it's gluten-free due to celiac disease in my family. However, your version of healthy might involve embracing gluten, and that's perfectly okay. Your family's needs and preferences should guide your definition of healthy.

    Listen to this week's episode for three easy ways to add new recipes to your meal plan.

    Ep. 80 - You Don't Need A Detox After A Holiday Weekend, Here's How To Enjoy Your Food & Still Hit Your Health Goals

    Ep. 80 - You Don't Need A Detox After A Holiday Weekend, Here's How To Enjoy Your Food & Still Hit Your Health Goals

    In this episode, we're diving into a topic that's sure to spark some interest - detoxes. It's a subject that often stirs mixed emotions, and we're here to help you navigate the complexities surrounding it.

    We'll be discussing why you might want to reconsider the idea of detoxing, especially those online detoxes you can purchase without a doctor's prescription or recommendation.

    I dive into a marketing ploy that made me mad this Summer with a wellness company she discovered on Instagram. It all started with my love for matcha and a craving for a new kind to try... This story does NOT turn out like you would expect it to.

    While detoxes recommended by medical professionals have their time and place, these off-the-shelf solutions, often marketed aggressively before and after holidays, might not be as beneficial as they seem. At Be Your Best Self Coaching, we firmly believes that one-size-fits-all detoxes can leave you feeling worse, not better, despite the alluring marketing promises.

    With the holiday season around the corner, the pressure to detox after indulgent celebrations can be overwhelming. However, our host is here to tell you that you don't need to go down that path. Holidays are meant to be enjoyed, and food is an integral part of these celebrations. Rather than depriving yourself, focus on finding a balance that works for you.

    This week we share some tips to help you maintain your health and wellness goals while still enjoying holiday gatherings.

    Remember, one day or one event doesn't define your overall health. The Best Self Method encourages you to understand your body's needs and support it accordingly. So, let's make this holiday season about creating wonderful memories with loved ones, rather than stressing over detox plans.

    If you're looking for practical advice to navigate the holiday season without the unnecessary pressure of detoxing, you've come to the right place. Tune in to learn how to enjoy the festivities while staying on track with your health and wellness goals.

    Ep. 78 - The Weight Loss Rollercoaster: Navigating The Ups And Downs Of A Weight Loss Journey

    Ep. 78 - The Weight Loss Rollercoaster: Navigating The Ups And Downs Of A Weight Loss Journey

    Losing weight can feel like riding a roller coaster, and hitting that weight loss plateau can feel like the biggest hill to climb. The journey is filled with crazy ups, challenging downs, unexpected twists, and many turns. Just as a roller coaster offers a mix of excitement and uncertainty, so does the process of dropping those extra pounds. As a nutrition coach working closely with clients on their weight loss goals, I often find that the path to success resembles a roller coaster ride more than a straightforward, linear journey.

    Picture this: the exhilarating rush of the first drop, the anticipation of the uphill climb, the adrenaline of the curves and loops—these are all experiences that mirror the weight loss journey. It’s essential to understand that weight loss isn’t a fixed path. It’s more like a roller coaster ride with its hills and drops.

    Join us now on this episode of Be Your Best Self Health Chats, to talk about the dreaded weight loss plateau and now to get past it.

    Ep. 77 - Adding Vegetables Into Your Daily Routine Using The Best Self Method

    Ep. 77 - Adding Vegetables Into Your Daily Routine Using The Best Self Method

    By definition, habit means "a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up."

    There are many theories out there that habits take 21 days to solidify, however, according to research on average, habits take 66 days to build. Some take as few as 18 days and some may take 200+ days. 

    Why is that? 

    Training yourself to build new habits isn’t always as simple as “I’m just going to do this every single day”. It would be nice if it was that easy, wouldn’t it? 

    There are many different ways to add that habit into your day-to-day routine depending on what that habit is. 

    For those habits that are not as easy to rotate in (for example: building new eating habits) I encourage my clients to use my Best Self Method. 


    Research
    Adjust
    Heal

    Today I’m going to take you through each step of the method as it can apply to building new eating habits, specifically, we’re going to work through the best self method to build the habit of adding a vegetable to each meal and the steps that come with it.

    Ep. 76 - Abs Aren't [Just] Made In the Kitchen: The Cycle of Nutrition On and Off Your Plate

    Ep. 76 - Abs Aren't [Just] Made In the Kitchen: The Cycle of Nutrition On and Off Your Plate

    There is a cycle of nutrition, and it isn't just about food. As a nutrition coach, I often find that when someone comes to me to “eat healthier” they are surprised to find that I won't just write up a meal plan.



    To be fair, I’m not a registered dietician so I can’t legally write meal plans… but that’s beside the point.



    As a nutrition coach, I work with people on the nutrition ON their plate and their habits OFF their plate.



    There’s a saying “Abs are made in the kitchen” and I'm going to call BS on that this week on the podcast.
