Sunday Session – Almond butter, Slow cooker chicken, Sweet potato chips +

This Sunday I had family in town and therefore threw off my usual cooking routine. However, with a slow cooker there is always a way. This week I made a little something, something such as: Almond Butter Ingredients: Almonds and hazelnut oil Method: Place a cup of almonds in a food processor. Let the almonds become …

Dairy & Bone Health

For frequent viewers and those new to my site, you will know or become familiar with the notion I do not advocate a diet rich in dairy, especially not pasteurized, grain-fed, non-organic dairy. Yet, with this, common questions arise regarding the avoidance of dairy and bone health. Firstly, bone health is more than getting enough calcium. …

Type 1 Diabetes Paired With a Paleo Diet

I have three main purposes for my website and one is to help educate consumers on the connection between nutrition and health, secondly to describe the philosophy of my counseling services to potential patients to distinguish it from other dietitians/nutritionists and thirdly, to act as a portal for people with type 1 diabetes and those interested in the care for …

I am (still) in the process of moving – staying put come October 1 – and along the way I have been doing that fun routine of going through old boxes, from who knows when, and filtering away the things that have no reason to be kept. And tonight, I came across a scrapbook from …

See You Later Hypertension

Last fortnight I was asked to participate in an online interview (article originally published on: http://www.bloodpressurecharts.net/kelly-o-connell-interview.html) about natural ways to manage high blood pressure. Not only was this request interesting but it is a topic that needs more coverage. High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a silent killer. I hate to be so blunt but there is no way …

Tying in Health When Traveling

This month was uber fun, yet, I have sat on an airplane more than I have laid in my own bed. With late dinners and early mornings I bank on my diet to pull me through these busy events. I take my hat off to anyone who is a consultant and is always on the …

Alternative Health

Perhaps “alternative medicine” is a better term since health is such a loose word, but medicine seems so intimidating and foreign. Most recently I have been surrounding myself in some new practices – acupuncture, Chinese herbs and meditation. All of them have been great, especially since my glass is currently spilling over with stress while we …
