If you’ve been following my “Wellness Wednesdays” for the past few weeks, you know that I’m looking forward to dinner on Thursday night, when our Fundamental Foods and Friends Dinner welcomes Julianna Saitta of Mediterranean Meals.

Diet Mistakes Corrected By The Mediterranean Diet

Supercharge the Mediterranean Diet: The Benefits of Running

All this talk over the last several weeks about the Mediterranean Diet (and our terrific Fundamental Foods and Friends Dinner with Julianna Sagitta on Thursday night) has got me thinking about running. Not running away (although I have my days). Not running for office. I’m thinking about running for health. Outdoor Life One of the […]

Is The Mediterranean Diet An Effective Weight Loss Tool?

As we gear up for Thursday night’s Fundamental Foods and Friends Dinner, with my friend, Julianna Saitta, I want to answer a question I frequently get asked about the Mediterranean Diet. We have a lot of ground to cover today, so if you’re just joining us, it might help to take a few minutes to […]

Diseases The Mediterranean Diet Can Treat Or Prevent

Among the thousands of diet options that line the shelves at Barnes and Noble, few are as effective (and none are as ancient) as the Mediterranean Diet. Birthed in Old Testament times along the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea, this is how people have eaten in that part of the world for thousands of […]

What Makes The Mediterranean Diet So Powerful

Last week, I presented a challenge for you to think about: are you feeding your body in a way that promotes health and wellness, or disease? Specifically, I challenged the way we eat here in America.

What The Rest of the World Can Teach Us About Healthy Eating

I don’t know about you, but I love to travel. Some of my most-cherished life memories are set in far-away places. Costa Rica is a personal favorite of mine. There is something about stepping away from the daily routines of life and experiencing something fresh and new that excites me. It’s easy to lose yourself […]

Fighting Alzheimer’s Disease…Naturally

It’s been a wild week since my last “Wellness Wednesday.” Just when I thought my summer couldn’t get any crazier, along comes Irma. If you’re here in Naples with me, I pray that this article finds you safe and well (and maybe even air conditioned). Hurricane prep is just part and parcel of living in […]

What’s Your Wellness IQ?

Our culture places a premium on knowledge. We often measure ourselves (and each other) by what we know or don’t know. We live in a society that thrives on information, facts, and trivia. From stock strategies to world history, the topics are unlimited. But what information will make your life better? I have friends who […]

A Better Way To Think About Dieting

Did Tom Brady Just Tell The World Our Little Nutrition Secret?

Photo credit: AddyTsl / Unless you spent last week under a rock, you probably heard about Tom Brady, the enormously successful quarterback of the New England Patriots. For about the tenth time, he led his team to the AFC Championship Game, just one game short of the Super Bowl. Yes, his team lost and he had […]

Is The Mediterranean Diet The Perfect Way To Eat?

In our high-speed, high-pressure, high stress culture, we could learn much from those simpler times. They say we are in the most advanced civilization in history…but are we? Just look at our food.
