You Are What You Eat...And What You Don't!

Surely most of you have heard the expression, “You are what you eat.”  As much as I believe this, there is still a crucial part missing…you certainly are what you eat, but what you don’t eat is just as influential as what you do.    Read more

Lighten Up for Spring - by Christina Pirello

Truly warm days of spring and summer are a distant dream at the moment. The days are still cold and grey, the nights bordering on frigid…but there is a shift in the energy around us.

If you take the time to learn a few tricks of the kitchen, you can work it to your advantage. If you cook, even simple no-brainer meals, your partner will overlook your tummy, muffin top, lack of ambition or any of your other ‘special gifts.’  Trust me on this…I am a woman…who loves to be cooked for.  Read more
