5 Common Questions About Gestational Diabetes: Q&A with Whole 30 thumbnail

When I first started working in the field of gestational diabetes, I noticed a trend in the types of questions I was asked. Most of the time, I was assuaging fears and correcting misinformation. (There’s a ton of outdated prenatal nutrition advice, after all.) I’ve been trying to shift the conversation on gestational diabetes gradually […] Continue Reading

Avoid Gaining An Extra 5lbs Over the Holidays thumbnail

‘Tis the season of ugly Christmas sweater parties, white elephant gifts (another scented candle anyone?), and oh, right…. An extra 5lbs. Maybe you can skip the last one this December! (Or, better yet, the last two). If the holidays leave you worrying about weight gain - or saying “to hell with it” and eating everything […] Continue Reading

Stop Waiting to Figure Out Your Food Sensitivities thumbnail

I couldn’t put up with bloating and acne any longer. It's always something I had been curious about, but I had been putting it off and putting it off, thinking that only people with major digestive issues (like most of my clients at the time) needed extensive lab testing and the customized elimination diet that […] Continue Reading

10 Pregnancy Superfoods (according to a real food dietitian) thumbnail

First, let me start by saying the word “superfood” is dumb. It implies that one single food is the holy grail or holds the key to curing cancer. Or that you have to take an expedition to a rainforest to get a hold of it. There’s simply no single food that’s king. But, when my […] Continue Reading

Real Food for PCOS thumbnail

You know those friends who you can chat with for hours without running out of things to say? Lisa from the Fertility Friday podcast is one of ‘em. We’ve never met in-person and we’re not even in the same country, but by the magic of the interwebs, we’ve become fast friends. In my third appearance […] Continue Reading

Garlicky Roasted Romanesco thumbnail

I have a thing for weird vegetables. Not just the bent carrots or funny-shaped squash, but the lesser-known varieties that you often can’t find at the regular grocery store. Part of the reason shopping at the farmers’ market is so fun is that you get to see some of these odd ball, heirloom vegetables that […] Continue Reading

Warning: Cooking with Aluminum Foil is Toxic thumbnail

Aluminum foil is super convenient in the kitchen. You can wrap up foil packets of marinated veggies for the grill, line a baking sheet with foil to cut down on clean up, or cover casseroles in the oven. And don’t forget about storing leftovers in foil! Most of us don’t think twice about cooking with […] Continue Reading

5 Prenatal Nutrition Myths Every Paleo Mom Should Know About thumbnail

If you’ve done any reading about pregnancy nutrition, chances are you’ve read a lot of prenatal nutrition myths. That’s right. Some of the most common “nutritionisms” given to pregnant women are not backed by solid science (or even semi-solid science). When I was invited to speak at the Paelo f(x) conference this year, I knew […] Continue Reading

Baby Broccoli with Bacon thumbnail

Fresh, local produce is my jam. Since I relocated back to the “lower 48,” I’ve been relishing all the tender veggies at my local farmers’ market. (And, of course, missing all the wild salmon and halibut from Alaska. You can't have it all, I s'pose.) There’s one farmer, in particular, who’s somehow managed to show […] Continue Reading

Can Pilates During Pregnancy Prevent Diastasis Recti? thumbnail

I remember it clearly. I was lounging on the couch, 6 months pregnant, when I went to sit up and saw my tummy muscles bulge out. And it wasn’t what I was used to seeing pre-pregnancy when I forgot to engage my abdominal muscles. They bulged AND there was a groove between them. Despite all […] Continue Reading
