I did the Conscious Cleanse after meeting one of the founders, Jules Pelaez. The minute I saw her I knew who she was. The glow gave her away! I’m not kidding – she exudes an all-over glow. Hair, skin, body, spirit. I later came to find out that the glow is a side effect of […]
Meet Allen Lim. Physiologist. Coach. Entrepreneur. He’s a former coach of the cycling stars who brought innovative sports nutrition company Skratch Labs to life after years of making his “secret drink mix” for athletes in grueling endurance events like the Tour de France. Allen and I have run in the same circles for years […]
Meet Robyn O'Brien - unintentional food activist. Over a decade ago, she watched her youngest child go through a severe food allergy and was suddenly thrust into the world of food allergy education. Her finance background set her up to be a natural fit in this world as she was able to both translate the data in this very confusing industry and relate it to everyday moms just like her.
Meet Rip Esselstyn, a man of many talents. I first knew Rip as an incredibly talented pro triathlete who raced against my husband Tim in the mid 90s. After his triathlon career, he became a firefighter in Austin, TX. It was there that he founded the Engine 2 empire which started as a macho “who has the lowest cholesterol” contest between firefighters and has become a massive movement in the plant-powered arena. He’s one of those people who is truly changing the world and I can’t wait to share his outlook with you.
In 2015 I played with food. I made a commitment at the start of the year to step out of my food box and try new things. I didn’t want to lose weight. I wasn’t interested in a fad diet. I wasn’t looking for a magic pill. In fact, I didn’t want to […]
I took on the Engine 2 Challenge during the toughest month of the year. The Halloween Month. It was ambitious due to my propensity for candy corn, but I wanted more than the usual challenge. I wanted to make some changes during a time when I usually go backward. To refresh your memory, […]
Before I dive into the week, I am totally putting myself out there and sharing the results of my blood work. If I can stay true to the program, there are some items that should decrease, namely my cholesterol. So here it is in all its glory – prior to starting the E2 […]
Let me start by saying that while “No Dessert April” was the worst month of my life, “Food Tracking September” has been the most annoying month of my life! Even with the invention of food tracking apps, it is not easy to log every single bite I take each day. But I guess that […]
I’m excited to announce my September Eating Challenge. I’m calling it Food Awareness Month – and I’m scared to death about it! You see, I’m a snacker. All day every day. I constantly munch. Just ask my teammates. It’s a non-stop stream of snacks to the point where I forget I’m eating. I […]
I took my Vegan Challenge on the road this week from Boulder to Pittsburgh for the Fleet Feet Conference. My goal was simple – I wanted to know how hard it would be to eat vegan in a town that isn’t Boulder. The simple answer is that it’s easy, if you are okay eating […]
