Cook for Your Family Like Wonder Woman

Lisa StoryConscious Eating, Detoxification, Recipes, Reducing Stress

What I am about to say may give away my age! I grew up loving Wonder Woman. I wanted to be Wonder Woman. Watching the women around me and reflecting on my own life, I’m pretty sure we really are all Wonder Women. I’ve heard many women share that they feel overwhelmed with a chronic busy-ness that chips away at their health and vitality. Cooking a nutritious meal at the end of the day can feel like a near impossible feat. This overwhelm can steer cars through fast food drive-thru’s at the end of the day for a quick bite or lead to feeding the kiddos cereal for dinner. Not because they don’t care about healthy food, but they are … KEEP READING…

Making the Sugar Connection

Sugar Connections

While driving my son to soccer practice, I reached over and picked up my favorite organic 73% dark chocolate bar.  I was about to take a bite when I heard, “Mom…don’t eat that chocolate.  It makes you cranky.”  I was caught off guard by those words and quickly began to defend my chocolate honor.  “There are antioxidants in the chocolate, Sam.  It is good for me.”  For goodness sake, I am a Certified Health Coach, I should know what is good for me and what is not!  But, the truth is, my son was right.  The sugar in that chocolate bar does make me feel a bit cranky.  Well….first I feel uplifted and fabulous and then I come crashing down….feeling … KEEP READING…

candle soothing our fear of success

Last week I wrote about the anti-self-care habit of procrastination and how it can be a form of self-sabotage. Why do we sabotage ourselves?  I don’t set out to purposefully undermine myself and yet it happens.  Often I don’t even realize that I have sabotaged myself until after the deed is done.  I’m guessing the same may be true for you. Conscious and sometimes unconscious reasons get in our way.  These reasons may include an underlying feeling of unworthiness, fear of failure, or fear of success. Yes…a fear of success. Sometimes success requires big changes in our lives that we are afraid to make or don’t feel ready to make.  This can bring up all sorts of fear and next thing … KEEP READING…
