Fruit– Would it surprise you to hear that one banana contains approximately 19 grams of sugar? While you’re much better off chowing down a banana verses a Kit Kat bar, just understand that excess sugar in the body, natural or not, is converted into fat. Trail mix– Unless you’re mixing it yourself most prepackaged trail mix contains an exorbitant amount of sugar and sodium. DIY options are limitless if you head to the bulk food section of your nearest Whole Foods store. Reach
As a Health Coach I’m often asked, “What is the most important thing I can do to better my health?” This simple question often leads to a loaded response. So I wondered, how do other Health Coaches respond? Here’s what the experts are saying… Joe Wicks, The Body Coach recommends you “Ditch the diets.” Low calorie, quick fix diets aren’t sustainable. Fad dieting often leads to relapse resulting in weight-gain. When it comes to dieting, slow is sustainable. Adding in nutrient r
Gluten is the common name for storage proteins found in wheat (durum, emmer, spelt, farina, farro, KAMUT) rye, barley and triticale. Gluten serves as an emulsifier, holding foods together. Gluten is generally found in: breads, baked goods, food coloring, cake mixes, soups, pasta, cereal, beer, ice cream, sauces, cookies, salad dressing, malt, packaged foods, crackers and cookies. Unless you’ve been diagnosed with celiac disease, it may not be gluten that’s specifically to b

2. Mike Tyson
3. Venus Williams Despite what conventional USDA dietary guidelines suggest, animal derived products such as meat and dairy are not necessary components of a healthy diet. In fact, eliminating (or limiting) such products f
Before graciously bidding farewell to the incredible island of Oahu, it is imperative that I take one last pass at Kauai’s magical Na Pali coast. This majestic trail is nothing shy of fantasy! Eleven miles of rugged terrain is well worth the sweat in the presence of brilliant red rock, rich cascades of green, and electric blue waters. Having previously hiked Na Pali’s treacherous coastline, I am well aware that all provisions must be carried in and out, on your back. Clear

Demanding Transparancy! When California voters rejected 2012’s Proposition 37 (proposal mandating the labeling of GMO foods), I was appalled. While it may be true, ignorance is bliss, isn’t it equally rational to suggest knowledge is power? Why NOT vote in favor of truth? Upon further investigation, it became evident that this was not simply a denial of truth but rather a strategic investment in promotional marketing. Let’s reexamine the numbers. Biotech & agrochemical glu
Interested in Organics & Uninterested in breaking the bank… Not all Organics are created equal! Some produce is inclined to retain residue and harbor pesticides, whereas others may be protected by an outer layer of skin or undergo less chemical exposure. When it comes to Organics on a budget, spurge on the Dirty Dozen & penny pinch on the Clean Fifteen. Dirty Dozen 1. Apples

As an avid carnivore, I must admit the mere thought of a 30 day abstinence was rather daunting. Here I am 14 days in, and I can honestly say I’ve never felt so freakishly robust. I’ve been shredding physical activities, feeling excessively energetic & sleeping like a champ! My ascribed constitution is that of athletic build. Genetics, paired with a physical lifestyle has lead me to be particularly conscientious of consuming appropriate levels of protein. Though governmen

Americans generally consume an outrageous 156lb of sugar per person, annually! ARE WE A NATION OF ADDICTS?! According to compiled research derived from pubmed.gov, sugar stimulates the brain’s reward centers via the neurotransmitter dopamine. This just so happens to be the same stimulation pathway used by heroin. Certainly a sugar “addiction” renders a far less severe connotation than a heroin addiction, however, biologically speaking the two may have more in common than we’d
10. Avoid foods with labels– if there is an ingredients list be sure there are 5 items or less, all of which you can pronounce.
9. Refrain from evil white powders– sugar, flour, white table salt, cocaine, heroin (all similar hormonal pathways generally resulting in overuse/consumption).

Living in Hawaii has it’s guaranteed share of perks. However, there is one very crucial season Hawaii so casually skips over…autumn. Aside from the glorious offerings of crisp air, dried leaves piled for jumping, & warm apple cider fresh off the press; autumn exudes renewal. I’ve been examining the relationships I hold close. With limited time, and potential expiration at any given point, it’s crucial to share of yourself only with those deserving of your energy. Life is to
3 TIPS ENSURING A SAFE STREET EXPERIENCE 1. When purchasing meat products such as drumsticks or kebobs be sure to hand select the piece yourself. Select pieces fresh on or off the grill & make sure it’s fully cooked prior to consumption.
2. Stick to vendors with heavy traffic. If their stall is busy, the food is likely turning quickly and brilliantly delicious!
3. Order food that’s cooked while you watch. One of my favorite items were bacon wrapped enoki mushrooms topp
