As a grandmother myself, I love this. We should honor this role and the wisdom we have obtained that only experience can provide.

I woke up to a beautiful, poignant scientific article share by my friend and Food & Spirit colleague, Allyne Rosenthal, on what we are learning from the quintessential matriarchal mammals on menopause. Yesterday, an article in Nature discussed observations of why menopause exists based on examining whales. Some of them are listed below. Menopause may be an actual passing of the "biological baton," and a way for the older female in the group to make space and the resources available for her reproductive daughters as well as her sons, which stay with her through her lifetime.

We have so much to learn from nature. Animals can be one of our biggest teachers (as I know from the cats I've lived with!). If we saw menopause as a pause in reproduction to share resources, such as philosophy, wisdom, and strength, with others, it might alter our orientation to it.

Quality matters when it comes to food. Eggs are a common allergy. I love them. If you can ear them then choose wisely. Here’s why

Paying $1.99 for a dozen eggs?

All eggs are NOT created equal. And if you’re buying cheap eggs, you are most likely not getting good nutrition and the chickens are not being treated humanely.

Eggs are rated on a nutritional scale from 1-5. Five being the most nutritious.

Costco eggs and Egglands eggs are not nutritional eggs with a rating of only 1. Look at the differences in the one cheap egg compared to the other eggs pictured.

Eggs from chickens that are allowed to roam in the pastures and are fed organic feed are by far the healthiest. Don’t be fooled by the term “free range“ or “cage free.” These chickens generally do not see the light of day. Make sure you look for the term “pasture raised.“ And “pasture raised organic” is always best. That way they are not eating GMO feed.

😱Top 5 Worst Egg Brands😱
Based on farming practices, quality of feed and storage methods, here are the top 5 worst egg brands that you should avoid according to Medium:

🥚Cal-Maine Foods: Cal-Maine Foods is the largest producer of eggs in the United States. However, their chickens are raised in factory farms and are often kept in cramped, unsanitary conditions. Additionally, the company has been criticized for using questionable farming practices that can harm the environment.

🥚Hillandale Farms: Hillandale Farms has a history of salmonella outbreaks and was forced to recall millions of eggs in 2010 due to contamination. The company has also been accused of inhumane treatment of their chickens.

🥚NuCal Foods: NuCal Foods has been cited for a number of violations, including failing to provide adequate food and water for their chickens. The company has also been accused of mislabeling their eggs as “cage-free” when in fact the chickens are kept in cramped conditions.

🥚Eggland’s Best: Eggland’s Best markets their eggs as “nutritionally superior,” but many experts disagree. Their chickens are fed a diet high in soy and corn, which can impact the quality and flavor of their eggs.

🥚Great Day Farms: Great Day Farms is a Walmart brand that has been criticized for their questionable farming practices. Their chickens are often kept in crowded conditions, and the company has been accused of using inhumane methods to dispose of sick or injured birds.

🌟Alternatives to the Worst Egg Brands🌟
If you’re looking for high-quality eggs that are produced with ethical and sustainable practices, here are some brands to consider:

🥚Vital Farms: Vital Farms is a popular brand that produces pasture-raised eggs from happy, healthy chickens. The company is committed to ethical and sustainable farming practices and has received high marks from animal welfare organizations.

🥚Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs: Pete and Gerry’s is another popular brand that produces organic, free-range eggs. The company is committed to sustainable farming practices and has received high marks for animal welfare.

🥚Handsome Brook Farms: Handsome Brook Farms produces pasture-raised eggs that are certified organic and Non-GMO Project Verified. The company is committed to ethical and sustainable farming practices and has received high marks from animal welfare organizations.

Amen Dr Ben Dr Ben Lynch I totally agree!

50 today.

I remember when I turned 10. I was sitting on the top of our fence. i kept thinking, “Wow. I’m a big boy now. I have two numbers in my age”

Age is literally just informing you, and others, how many times you’ve gone around the sun while on this amazing Earth.

Moments vary from the absolute best ever to the worst ever.

With age, comes the understanding that we are very resilient.

My job is to help you support your body’s ability to stressors of all types.

Chemical, biological, mental, physical to name a few.

The one I cannot support you with is Belief.

What I can say is Believe in Better.

With belief, comes action, comes outcome which then further drives your belief. I learned that from Tony Robbins. It’s an amazing combination that we need to understand.

The more you believe in something, the more action you take which then improves the outcome which then further reinforces your belief.

I believe that 50 is a pretty awesome achievement.

I feel great and believe I can feel better.

Believe in Better.

Today I started my 5 # challenge to lose 5 pounds in 5 days without pills, potions or planks. The first day's discussion was around practicing loving awareness and forgiveness and it reminded me of this post I wrote over 3 years ago. Thought I would share again.

Our relationships offer a mirror into ourselves. What we admire in others reflects the qualities we have within our self. Likewise, what we judge in others is often what we judge in ourselves. We’ve been compared to an iceberg. 10% of what we see is above water. This is our conscious self. This is...

After hanging the stockings with care, and shopping and wrapping and cooking and cleaning and serving and worrying about whether you’ve done enough… have you ever gone to bed after a big holiday with a migraine?

Adrenal stress is an epidemic even before we add on our holiday stress. Our bodies don’t know the difference between being chased by a saber tooth tiger and fear, anxiety, and worry. It seems like we are all on sympathetic nervous system overdrive - or fight or flight mode.

No wonder obesity, thyroid, hormonal and endocrine disorders, cancers, and diabetes are also rampant.

So what can we do to not only survive the holidays but thrive?

1. Breathe. Breath is the number 1 medical intervention - and the easiest thing to immediately implement.
2. Treat Yourself First. Selfcare isn’t selfish - make sure you take time for YOU this holiday season!
3. Nourish Yourself. Eat whole and healthy foods, drink lots of water, remove those automatic negative thoughts, and spiritual take time for yourself with prayer or meditation.

Have you ever been curious about my Metabolic Reset Program? Are you interested in resetting your metabolism?

Your metabolic rate determines your energy level. It determines if you are able to gain or release weight. Your metabolic hormones are interconnected with your stress hormones and your s*x hormones. When they are not balanced, neither are YOU!

Together, we will gain the skills and confidence to be your own health advocate, all from the comfort of your home. I’ll support you as you release extra weight, increase energy, improve sleep, and truly love yourself back to a vibrant, healthy life.

Over 12 weeks, you’ll learn:
1. The benefits of Intermittent Fasting
2. The Autonomic Nervous System and how we get out of fight or flight mode
3. Useful strategies for optimizing your digestion
4. How to improve your sleep
5. Mastering your mindset and how that can lead to less stress and more energy
6. How activating your vagus nerve can lead to weight loss, stress resiliency, better fertility, and healthy bowel movements
7. The importance of incorporating joyful movement into your life
8. The benefits of medicinal mushrooms
9. Ways to improve your communication skills
10. The best tools for creating a healthy home
11. How to celebrate successes together to create more success!
12. How to create a sustainable lifestyle that will enable you to prevent cancers and chronic diseases and to Live Younger Longer

Three things are missing from our current healthcare system. (Some call it a sick-care system).

1. A focus on nutrition. The typical advice is focused on fad diets and failure, not on long-term, sustainable change based on whole foods.
2. Health Coaching, which offers small, simple, sustainable steps for success.
3. Functional Medicine. Asking, "WHY" so you can get to the root cause and actually make change.

Many of my clients have spent thousands of dollars on functional medicine tests with doctors, only to feel overwhelmed and defeated when they were unable to sustain the change they were looking for.

It doesn’t have to be that way. It’s time to take back your health.
