Fabulous Nutrition Discovery!

Over the weekend I attended the Women's Expo at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, CT. I stumbled up a booth with the most amazing concept in foods and nutrition: Nutrition Master Foods from Springfield, VA. Now being in my 5 month of pregnancy it is difficult to eat a full meal and I have succumbed to "snacking" for the first time in a long time. The meal tubes (breakfast, lunch and dinner) are not only absolutely delicious, they are satisfying and nutrient dense. Please check out their website and let them know I sent you!

Healthy Life Magazine February 2013

Please click here for my latest contribution to Healthy Life Magazine on incidental exercise. I had to disagree to an extent with a bariatric surgeon's comments on minimizing the effect of incidental exercise. Over weight and obese people are such for a reason. It is important to never minimize the little things we do, not because it adds up but because it establishes health habits!


Healthy Life Magazine - June edition

Head Personal Trainer Lena Minervino is featured in the June edition of Healthy Life magazine in "Walk off the Weight" and "Tips for Getting Rid of Your Muffin Top". In the June edition another local trainer shows off some really great core strengtheners. Now is the time to really utilize the great weather and if it's not so good grab some workout DVD's at your local library and keep it movin'!

My first "official" 5k Zombie Run Boston

It's been a while since I have posted an update. Life has been hectic in my life, just as it is in anyone else's life. I finally completed my first 5k on Saturday, May 5th Cinco de Mayo! I have to say on such an alcohol soaked day I didn't drink a drop.... I was far too dehydrated running from zombies for an hour! This was the best 1st 5k I could have done and had a great partner to do it with! I'm sure she slowed to my pace to make me feel better :) I'm not much of a long distance runner at all, but damn I can sprint past those zombies!

CSA and CSK with Green Gourmet to Go

Over a year ago, I stumbled upon this little store called Green Gourmet to Go. Linda, the owner, is amazingly friendly and incredibly talented. She has since created a pick up service for her wonderfully healthy and delicious food. This month she is starting a CSA (community supported agriculture) from Urban Oaks farm in New Britain. In addition, she is offering a CSK (community supported kitchen) option where Linda provide entrees, snacks and fabulous desserts. Click here for more information on Green Gourmet to Go and the CSA/CSK options.

Bringing you more.... Master's in Nutrition from UB!

I have been accepted into the Master's in Human Nutrition program at the University of Bridgeport. This program differs from other programs in that its focus is on functional medicine and its growing value in the prevention of disease. Graduates are enabled to provide customized diet and nutrition recommendations that are effective.... this is not your typical calorie counting! Doctors, Chiropractors, Nurses, Pharmacists and other Health Care Professionals have graduated from this program. I met many of them at the IAACN in Baltimore last weekend who strongly encouraged me to take on this program.
