pHony or phantastic for your body

Is coffee good for you? It's great for me and always has been. Studies are just bearing this out in terms of vascular benefits.

It makes others jittery? How does it make you feel?

Portion and pairings

We can control the path of digestion our body takes through what we eat - at each meal or snack. Opt for smaller meals or snacks and adding a protein source whenever you eat carbohydrate if you want your body to raise glucose levels more slowly and help you stay full longer.

About Me

My photo
First trained as a food chemist and nutritionist, my career began enriching a Twinkie, comparing the nutrition of a Twinkie to an apple and studying the role of sugar in the diet. With an M.B.A. and years in food and pharma understanding consumers and manufacturers, I'm back to where I started - food should taste great and serve to keep us healthy. To do so, there needs to be consumer awareness. Consumers need to vote for what they want by buying what they really want. If they buy impulsively, that's what they will see more of. They need to practice balance and responsible choices. That's when change will come. Please engage me with your conversation so that I can help you make and stick to better food choices that you enjoy. You'll gain a deeper appreciation of food not only from farm to table but farm to health. My vision is to promote solutions for healthful food and food practices you can happily embody and embrace!
