Using Chinese Medicine to Keep You Healthy While You Travel

The residents of New York City are no strangers to claustrophobic modes of transportation; on a daily basis, we endure wheezing pedestrians, sticky children and break dancers who love to smear residue from the subway floor onto every accessible railing. And unfortunately, most methods of escape from the germy, stressful cluster of boroughs require similarly […]


Cauliflower Rice Party!

I came late to the cauliflower rice party, but I’ve been enjoying it since I arrived.


Healthy Foods You Can Use To Offset Your Cravings

Can’t stop thinking about that Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey that’s just sitting there in your freezer? How about when you’ve had a long and busy day: surely you deserve that bag of chips? What about when you’re tired and you need some extra sugar as a pick-me-up? Thoughts like this aren’t uncommon, and food […]


Our Sweet Escape: Part 4

This is the final week! We made it, mostly! We’re all very proud of ourselves and each other! This wasn’t the easiest task.. and we did it with only a few bumps along the road. We’re sorry we didn’t update you last week: we all dropped the ball a little bit, but, we are back! And here’s […]


Our Sweet Escape: Part 3

We’ve made it pretty far, half way to be exact! We’re all getting used to our sugar free lives, the food options out there for us, and so on. However, some of us are definitely finding it a little harder than others…


How to Curb Your Sugar Cravings

Decreasing or avoiding sugar can be a big challenge for most of us. Sugar is everywhere, and not just in our desserts and treats. Sometimes we aren’t even aware of the hidden sugar we’re ingesting. Juices, condiments, cereal, salad dressings, sauces, and even “natural” things like some dried fruit and yogurt can all contain added […]


Our Sweet Escape: Part 1

Sugar certainly seems to be a hot topic at the moment. From movies like Fed Up to Alec Baldwin’s “war on sugar,” we’ve been noticing more of a dialogue about what we are putting in our bodies. And, to be honest, talking about processed/refined sugars really seems like a conversation worth having. 


Exercise & Fertility: How Much Should You be Doing?

Exercise can improve circulation, prevent chronic disease (i.e. Cardiovascular disease), manage and/or prevent metabolic syndromes (i.e. pre-diabetes, and type 2 diabetes mellitus), help manage anxiety and moderate depression, and help manage and prevent weight gain, just to name a few. But did you know that it can also boost your fertility? Being healthy is important for […]


Fatigued, Lowered Immunity, and Swollen Glands?

People who catch colds easily and who find it difficult to battle said colds, people who often say that “they need their sleep” preferring 9-10 hours of sleep per night and often more on the weekends, and people who time and time again find inflammation manifesting as either chronic sinusitis, enlarged tonsils, swollen lymph nodes and/or […]


Are Prenatal Vitamins Really Necessary?

It’s a pretty wild concept, I know. How could it be that, in our “pill-for- every-ill, nutrition-in-a-bottle” world, swallowing handfuls of daily supplements might just be…. Unnecessary?
