If you have been following my newsletters you know that this year has been full of studying for me. A year long clinical nutrition mentorship program with Liz Lipski (PhD in Clinical Nutrition and the author of the must read Digestive Wellness) and a year of deepening my Ayurveda knowledge with Vaidya Atreya Smith. While both approaches to healing have a lot in common, they have quite a few differences.

We all have our pet peeves. Some hate when a toilet paper roll is placed the wrong way, others cringe their teeth at noisy eaters, and many of us dislike when someone is taking forever to order when there is a line (juice bar lunch line that is:)).

Every morning you spend a significant chunk of your time looking in the mirror and putting together an outfit for the day. You take into consideration your appointments, the weather, activity level, and your personal preferences to create a perfect well-suited ensemble.
Lately, I have been noticing that not everything that I eat makes me feel equally well. The more I pay attention to my stomach before and after food, the more feedback my body provides. While I am still learning to decipher my body’s messages, one finding keeps emerging more often than others: THE SIMPLER THE DISH, THE LESS ENERGY IT REQUIRES TO DIGEST. Which means, I have more energy left to do other things like write, think, teach, do yoga, and just enjoy my life.
The sun is getting slightly warmer every day in New York City. The air is not so frigid anymore. Once again I am looking forward to stepping outside and walking to my yoga classes… Spring is here!!!
