I recently received a question asking how it’s possible to get enough calcium on a vegan keto diet (or even a low carb vegan diet), without resorting to fortified foods or supplements. As a fan of whole foods nutrition, I totally appreciate the desire to try and get all of your nutrition from the foods […]
I’ve spoken before (on this podcast) about drinking on a diet, specifically on how to min-max your alcoholic beverage (and drunk eating) choices to keep you on track, and stave off any extra weight gain.

Hey there! If you’ve been keeping up with the Keto and Ayurveda series here, you’re now familiar with the three doshas, as well as different tastes and their impact on the doshas. If you haven’t read either of those articles (or the one on seasonal eating!), I recommend you at least skim them for general […]
Whenever I start working with a new client, the first thing I have them do (before we even talk for the first time!), is keep a food journal. This is also something I recommend to anyone who is trying to get a handle on their eating habits, or just feel better in general. Food plays […]
