Hi everyone! After many years of having my Aesthetic Athlete blog, I have decided to move it over to my website: Nutrition. Designed. I will continue to post as regularly as I can there. And all posts here have been moved there. For a short time I will keep this site, but at some point… Continue reading The Blog has Moved to Nutrition. Designed.
Body care is one of those areas that doesn’t really fall under the nutrition umbrellas but does fall into the wellness category. It also seems to be one of the last things we talk about in a nutrition session. But it’s pretty important. In the US, our product safety regulations have not changed since 1938!… Continue reading The Best Natural Body Care Products
Whew! This is a long one guys. Let’s be honest, how often do I write short blog posts?!?! Ha! But a supplement post was highly requested. Especially now with the unfortunate acquisition of Pure Encapsulations, Douglas Labs and Garden of Life, among others, by Nestle last month. It just means it’s time to change… Continue reading Supplement Support – What I Take & Why

One of my biggest pet peeves when I look around at all the “healthy” Instagrammers, bloggers and other health-nuts out there is that a lot of them are still eating egg whites only. What?!?! I thought by now everyone had gotten the memo that yolks don’t really contribute to bad cholesterol and heart disease, but… Continue reading Everything You Need to Know About Eggs
Like so many things we consume in this world there is no clear line to answer this question. It is more about you and your body - how it processes caffeine, are you allergic to it, the quality of coffee beans, how you drink it and of course the even bigger reason, why do… Continue reading Coffee: to drink or not to drink?

As a holistic nutritionist I get a lot of the same questions from my clients. One of the top question/concerns I am asked is how to eat healthy when they are so busy. To which I usually ask them how their typical days go. Where is all there "extra" time (the time not at work,… Continue reading Snacks on the Go
