The Sweet Spot Food Split

I use the 75/25 rule with food fairly consistently. This means that while 75% of my food choices are nutrient dense, whole food options when possible, and the other 25% of my daily calories typically come from not-so-whole-and-nutrient-dense choices.   Because having a good balance of both makes it easy to make healthy, satisfying choices.…

Friend or Foe?

Have you ever had a friend that is pretty fun and happy and nice 25% of the time, but most of the time she can be a bit of a downer and sometimes downright negative or rude? And even though you know that eventually this person will lash out and hurt you somehow, you find…

Road trips. Adventure for some, a necessary evil for others (I’m talking about you travelling health care workers and business people).
