Obesogens …Obese-o-what?

Endocrine disruptors, also known as “OBESOGENS”, are lurking all around us and may be a key factor in making America FAT and SICK.  As you may realize, obesity is an epidemic and chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes continue to escalate.

So…what role do obesogens play?

Obesogens are environmental toxins found in food, water, insecticides, plastics, cleaning products, cosmetics, etc. that negatively affect metabolism and may predispose some to weight gain. They mimic our own hormones and confuse or disrupt natural hormone production.

Oh My Ghee-ness!

September 4th, 2015 | Eating, Fat

 

The Paleo Product of the month for September is Ancient Organics Ghee.

And to reiterate the title of this blog…Oh My Ghee-ness! It is delicious! I’ve tried other brands of ghee before and this tastes quite different. The creamy texture and nutty, caramelly (not sure if that’s a word 🙂 flavor is amazing. My favorite way to eat it is to dip sliced apples into it for a tasty snack. I also love to make pureed soups with it…makes the soup super creamy and flavorful!

August 3rd, 2015 | Eating, Nourishing Foods

 

We often get asked about protein powder. The truth is most proteins powders have a bunch of junk in them that you want to steer clear of, and are made in such a way that damages the proteins. However, there are a few out there that have high-quality ingredients without all the additives and chemicals.

Vital Proteins Collagen and Peptides are a great source of protein AND have many added health benefits.

It’s one of my favorite Paleo-friendly, health promoting products.

I’ll tell you why… Keep Reading…

May 31st, 2015 | Eating, Fat

It’s time to wrap up our digestion series and we get to end it with the best of all the food stuffs, fat!  I think this is a really important macronutrient to cover, because there’s a lot of confusion out there about how we metabolize and use the fat that we eat.
