Spoiler Alert: Not All Foods Make You Feel Great
Do you feel differently when you eat different foods? That might sound like a silly question, but different foods affect us differently. I feel different when I eat salad than I do when I eat steak. Ice cream makes me (personally, and sadly), feel gross, and I don’t always feel great eating steak or bread […]
Is Sugar Evil?

Why Some Foods Make You Feel Awful
Do you ever feel terrible after you eat certain foods? Maybe some food makes you feel tired, or bloated (that’s a common one), or just give you an upset stomach.

Eating Healthy With Super High Food Prices
I just got back from the grocery store, and wow! We all have watched prices going up for months now, and I wince every time I put some items in my cart, but today felt like a new high. A (very large) bag of carrots at Costco today cost me $9.99, while back in January […]

The Truth About Coffee
Coffee – the nectar of the Gods? Or no thanks, not for you? This luscious, rich, dark liquid is revered by many. And coffee is more than a taste – it’s often an experience. It’s a ritual, it’s a habit, it’s an enjoyable part of the day for most people. For many, it’s also a […]
Why Some Foods Ruin Sleep
Do you feel differently when you eat different foods? That might sound like a silly question, but different foods affect us differently. I feel different when I eat salad, compared to steak, compared to ice cream, compared to bread, etc. And how I feel when I eat a lot of bread is going to be […]
