Craving sweets at night? Here's What To Eat.

One of the most frequent questions my clients ask me is what they should eat at night when they’re craving something sweet. There’s just something about that time of day. For me, it’s when I finally slow down and relax. My family’s typical day is go-go-go from the moment we wake up in the morning, getting lunches packed and the entire family ready and dropped off in time for school and work.

Questioning if you have food sensitivities? 

If, while I was getting my dietetics degree, you would have told me that I’d be coaching people about food sensitivities, I honestly would have thought you were joking.

When I was in college (and during my medical internship), gluten-free was a thing we only talked about when someone had diagnosed celiac disease. Peanut allergies were definitely on the rise (as were peanut and nut-free schools), and I was under the impression that every American should be consume three servings of milk (cow dairy) per day.

7 Steps to Improve Your Adrenal Function

I’ll never forget that period of my life. I was 24 and I had just transitioned from working 70 hours a week at a club in Arizona to a 9 to 5 job in the corporate office as a dietitian. I was experiencing very disrupted sleep, low energy (all day) and sugar cravings (all the time). And for the first time in my life, I had gained weight in my midsection.
