At one such event, my bestie Gemini I had invited a colleague from her MBA program (let’s call him “Pierre”). Pierre was tall, suave, prematurely gray (which just gave him even more élan), a true gourmet, and–most engaging of all–he spoke with a French accent. So I was thrilled when he offered to create the hors d’oeuves for our party.

How to Enjoy the Benefits of Collagen–without Bone Broth

Candida diet sources of collagen

It’s all the rage among holistic health professionals: bone broth. Seems bone broth is a panacea for pretty much every gut-related problem, from leaky gut to autoimmune disorders to indigestion.

How to Rebalance Your Blood Sugar If You Overdo it During the Holidays

There are times during the year when it’s almost expected that people will overdo it on rich, indulgent or sugary foods. If you subscribe to the “80/20” or “90/10” rules (eat well 80% or 90% of the time, then gorge on what the heck you feel like the other 20% or 10% of the time), […]
