For my own benefit and for the benefit of my clients, I try to keep up the latest information in the areas of diet, health and nutrition. However, with a pretty busy schedule, it isn’t always easy to crack open a book and read all the information I would like to. That is why I love listening to podcasts when I’m am commuting, doing housework or working out. There are thousands of podcasts out there, and many of them focus on health and nutrition as their primary topic. These podcasts are usually about 2-3 hours long-pretty much a mini seminar-and are completely free!
Some of the best episodes I have listened to recently are on the Joe Rogan Experience and the Tim Ferriss Show. Joe Rogan has many guests that are experts in the field of diet and nutrition, but my favorite has to be Dr. Rhonda Patrick. Dr. Rhonda Patrick is a wealth of knowledge- check her out on episodes #568, #672, and #773 of the Joe Rogan Experience to hear what she has to say on the topic of supplements, nutrition and sports medicine. For great info on fasting and ketogenic diets, listen to Dom D’ Agostino, episode #117, on the Tim Ferris show. You can find these podcast episodes and many others by searching the podcast app on Apple and Android phones, or by searching YouTube.
Fk the scale. Ha ha okay, but for real, I hate the scale! Intelligently I know the number doesn't matter, however, I get upset if it's not the number I want it to be; this arbitrary number that I deem as successful. Do you find yourself getting too focused on the number on the scale? Yes, weighing yourself is the most well-known basis of measurement for weight loss, it’s FAR from the only one, and is one you shouldn’t knock yourself over! Your weight can fluctuate often for numerous reasons. Eating fibrous or salty meals the night before, stress (cortisol), that time of the month, dehydration, weighing yourself at different times of the day, the list goes on! 🌻

Cannabis, an alternative medicine infused in food. How to choose what best suits you. - by chef Frank
We live within a society that’s increasingly being led to opioid dependent lifestyles when it comes to medical conditions. Negatively charged and misguided perceptions or stigmas about cannabis predominantly influence choices for personal use. As an individual whom has repeatedly witnessed the positive effects of responsible and proper cannabis use, my wife and I became passionate about helping newly diagnosed individuals who were diagnosed with sudden medical conditions, were interested in alternative medicine, or have tried a series of unsuccessful treatments. Cena Segreta was created with the personal realization of how important it is to facilitate informed decision of which strain would best suit your specific needs or that of your loved one through infusion of quality strains and food.
In this blog I will help you understand the difference between Sativa, Indica, and Ruderalis Cannabis plants and include references to a small portion of the multitude of strains .
Here in Newport Beach, CA the anticipation of summer comes with June gloom. The heavy marine layer that clings to the coast for most of the day can seem to some gloomy but I think it is quite beautiful with the think gray sky and coolness to the air. This heavy marine layer all day also makes me want to stay inside and finish my spring cleaning. Have you cleaned out your kitchen and personal mental space?
Our mom's were right when they bugged us about eating our fruits and vegetables! Our doctors and nutritionists are also right when they share the same message - eat MORE fruits and vegetables; in fact, fill half your plate with them at every meal!
Most people want to comply with this advice, it's just hard to do with our busy lifestyles! What if a company made it easy for you?
That's right, it's bread! *gasp* - health freaks eat gluten?
DISCLAIMER: this does not apply to you if you have celiac disease, this is addressed to people who are either gluten intolerant or not sure what exactly gluten is! 💥
It’s all about the Butter!
I have these conversations with friends, family and clients all the time. Butter is bad. Butter is good. I’m allergic to dairy I can’t have butter. So when it comes down to it what is really the best option. I personally use Ghee, Keri gold and Coconut Oil in my household depending on what it’s used for. Ever heard of Bullet Proof Coffee? It’s amazing and it’s just what I like to drink before I start my day or a long jog! Coffee, Keri Gold and Coconut oil blended together and creates the perfect froth on top!!
My first attempt at growing an herb garden began five days ago. I have never been one to have a so-called “green thumb”, but I have wanted an herb and vegetable garden for some time now. My Christmas present from my husband was that he would build me a planter box. I suggested a kit or a partially-assembled box, but he wanted to do everything by hand. Due to life and busy schedules, the planter was finished four months later. But holy cow is looked great!
