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.

You know those nights when you're trying to fight the rumbling in your tummy right before bedtime? I've been known to stay up late for a deadline and wander my way into the kitchen in search of a quick and healthy snack. When it comes to nighttime snacks, it's best to reach for something on the small side that also has staying power. The right nighttime snack (and possibly even a nightcap!) can significantly impact how you sleep and consequently how you feel the next morning.

As a dietitian, I get asked about carbs and gluten all the time! Both my sister and boyfriend eat gluten-free diets, so setting the record straight about gluten-free diet myths and facts is of uber importance to me. You might be really surprised at some of the myth busting we're doing here today! I've also been trying my hand at gluten-free baking lately and let me tell you, it can be tricky. Gluten-free flour is a whole different animal!

If you were to come over to my house, you'd find a cupboard overflowing with tea. I love tea and not only because it provides so much flavor for so few calories. I find drinking a cup of tea to be an incredibly calming activity. And tea has some pretty major health benefits. Our ancestors were onto these benefits way before we started #teatime or coffee shops created signature blends. Not only can you whip up a delicious mug of tea in minutes, you can also incorporate it into recipes.

Looking for a new way to drink your tea? How about a tea latte? Warm up with a glass of this ginger-infused matcha green tea latte. It’s super easy to make! It’s been a long, hot summer in the northeast. But it’s finally starting to cool down, and I’ll soon be looking for ways to warm up. Fall is my favorite season, and I’m getting excited just thinking about its arrival!
