Last year was a whirlwind and the blog was put on hold. Stay tuned for new posts coming soon! And please always feel free to send me a question via the contact form. I'll try my best to address it here. Happy New Year!! Best wishes to all!! -Maxine
I've been meaning to write a post on this topic for some time but at this point, I just let the professionals do it! ;)
A few months ago, I was interviewed by SELF.com for mindful eating tips and the reporter said she wanted to do a feature on one of my tips: Plating Backwards. It's a technique that I recommend to clients to more easily achieve a well-balanced meal. As useful as learning about portion sizes and measuring them out can be, sometimes our overworked and overstimulated brains just need a simple, straightforward way to process and organize what we are eating. Click here to read about how you can ensure a nutritious plate of food with each meal.
As an added bonus to having SELF.com write about this strategy, Today's Dietitian gave me the honor of "RD of the Day" this week because of my dedication to promoting vegetables and in an almost effortless way! It was a very nice surprise, and from such a respectable magazine. :)
Now go get plating...backwards!
What a fantabulous new experience: a podcast interview all about fitness! Food Heaven Made Easy, run by two ridiculously adorable registered dietitians who are also best friends, asked me a bunch of questions about all things fitness. Jess and I had a really fun time talking about how much physical activity one needs, the importance of strength training, especially for women, what to look for in a personal trainer, and what kinds of exercises you can do to help build a booty (per Jess' request!). Check out the entire podcast by clicking the link below.
If you listen to the podcast and have any additional questions, you can always send me a message through the contact page or to firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy and get moving! ;)
