Banish Cellulite With The Right Foods, Exercise and Hydration!

Founder of Planet Shark Fitness / Certified Fitness Trainer & Nutritionist



Since cellulite affects 90% of women of all shapes and sizes, a frequent question I'm asked is how to reduce it if not eliminate it completely. While there are no magic potions and liposuction can actually make it worse, you can dramatically improve its…

Leave the Colors in the Crayon Box

Recently, I did a post that included a recipe for homemade Macaroni & Cheese.  In that post, I was discussing the backlash that Kraft is receiving because of its refusal to eliminate artificial dyes in their American version of Macaroni & Cheese.  The reason I say “American version” is because they have…

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

As my beloved Chicago Cubs celebrate their Opening Day, I thought I’d talk today about making healthier choices at the ballpark.  As a baseball fan and someone who used to work in professional baseball, I can tell you that part of the overall experience is the food and drink.  It just isn’t realistic to expect anyone…

Breakfast - Most Important Meal of the Day

When I worked in our elementary school district, one of the most heartbreaking things I dealt with were the kids who came to school hungry.  Our school didn’t offer a lunch program, but it wouldn’t have mattered anyway.  Our school didn’t have “cooking” equipment.  We basically only had ovens to heat up processed…

It's Not Rocket Science

Last week, I did a post about the child obesity epidemic in the United States.  In that post, the first point I wanted to make is that food is fuel.  When you realize that very fact, it becomes easier to make better choices.   It’s all about how you view yourself.

If you could buy yourself a brand new car and money was not an option, what kind of car would it be?  Visualize that car.  Imagine yourself in the driver’s seat.  Take in that “new car” smell – actually don’t…

Kraft Ain't Got Nothin' On THIS Mac 'N Cheese

There has been a whole lot in the news lately about Kraft Foods and their boxed macaroni and cheese.  And with good reason.  Ever wonder what gives the product its golden, “cheesy” color?  Artificial dyes my friend.  I mean, come on.  The “cheese” is a yellow powder that you mix with milk and butter.

But here’s the kicker.  Several other countries have banned these artificial dyes and refused to sell any products containing them.  So did that mean that these European boys and girls…

The 411 on GMO's

If I were to ask the majority of people in my little community what they know about GMO, most of them would probably say “not much”.  A few (sadly) would likely say “you mean the car company?”  Sure, you chuckle but it’s true.  Most people have no clue what a GMO is or why it would be important to them.

So, I decided to put something together for the average Joe that explains what a GMO is and why there’s so much in the news on this subject right now.  They say “knowledge is power”,…

Children - The New Faces of Obesity

It’s no secret that obesity is a problem in the United States.  And in spite of the fact that a hunger problem exists as well, our population as a whole eats more and moves less than the citizens of other countries.  Sadly, it’s no longer just affecting adults, but children as well.  Even though medicine has made huge strides and people, on average, are living longer, it has been said that today’s generation of children and teenagers may not live as long as their parents will.  So,…

Chocolate Cake That Can't Be "Beet"

If you read my post last Monday, which you can access here, you know that cooking was never my favorite household chore.  It always ranked right up there with ironing and scrubbing the toilet bowl.  But the family has to eat, am I right?

Actually, it wasn’t the cooking part that I had an aversion to, nor was it wondering what to make.  I have tons of great cookbooks and recipes that have been handed down over the years so culinary ideas are not the issue.  It wasn’t even the cleanup…

Case of the Sneaky Spinach

The dilemma is probably as old as motherhood itself.  How DO you get your kids to eat their vegetables?  When I was a kid, I remember hating a LOT of things my mom put on my plate:  beets, apple sauce, mustard, spinach, radishes (still not a fan – sorry Mom) and a bunch of other things.  I always felt like they were on my plate to punish me for something I had done wrong.

As years went by, my taste buds matured and I developed a liking for everything on this list – except for…

Heart Healthy, Kid Friendly Chicken Recipe

One of the challenges I have faced in my journey to be green, healthy and fit is in the area of cooking.  If you have read my posts before, you know about my aversion to cooking.  It’s one of those necessary evils I suppose, even though I am what you might call “kitchen challenged”.  Don’t like cooking or baking, but I can clean like a champ!

My husband is, quite fortunately for me, the kind of guy who will eat pretty much whatever I put in front of him.  Even if he doesn’t like it so…

Oh, How I Hate to Cook!

I have a confession to make.  Cooking is not one of my favorite things to do.  In fact, I really kind of hate it.  OK, maybe hate is a bit strong.  I mean, it’s not as bad as scrubbing the shower floor or putting clean sheets back on the beds (raise your hand if you hate dealing with fitted sheets).  But those…

Love That Lunch Duty

When I was working in our local school district, I had “lunch duty” each day.  Basically that meant helping the other two teachers make sure the kids each:

a.  had a lunch

b.  ate that lunch

c.  kept their “inside voices”

d. kept their hands to themselves; and

e. (my least…
