Are you tired of suffering from the symptoms of inflammation? Pain, achiness, and fatigue are all things you could do without. Luckily an anti-inflammatory diet, which decreases these symptoms, is pretty easy to follow. It's more or less a healthy diet that focuses on mostly whole foods while minimizing packaged and processed products. Who needs another restrictive low-calorie fad diet when you can get awesome results by eating a simple, healthy eating plan?

Like it or not, we're headed into a stressful time of year. No matter how awesome Thanksgiving and the winter holidays are (and they are awesome!), they can also create plenty of stress. You might be worried about hosting, what to eat during the holiday, or how to avoid gaining weight. Or maybe you're feeling social or financial stress. Whatever type of stress you're feeling, it's not good for you. After all, stress takes a toll on more than just your mental well being.

The power of positivity is real. That's pretty much how the phrase, "fake it till you make it" came into being. Treating yourself well, believing in yourself, and respecting your journey are all great ways to foster the confidence to live a life you love! If you can take the time and energy to do that, chances are healthy eating habits are not far behind. I travel the globe, attend Pilates classes, and create my own work schedule to stay true to myself. AND I eat healthy meals and snacks.

It's no secret that I love to travel. I've just returned from Paris and Frankfurt, and I'll be traveling to Washington D.C. later this week for a nutrition conference. So you can say I've been constantly packing and unpacking for weeks. And of course, the process includes replenishing my stash of healthy on-the-road snacks. Luckily, I've created a system that I use to stay fit and healthy while I explore the globe. I've collected top tips from other nutritionists to give you a variety of tips.
