Eat the Rainbow

By Eat This. It's Good! / February 27, 2017

I know what you are thinking. No, we are not going to talk about Skittles. So, what does it mean to eat the rainbow? Simply aim to eat as many “colorful foods” as you can throughout the day. Real food – think fruits and vegetables, not Skittles. Eat green, purple, red, yellow, blue.Kind of sounds like advice for a […]

Northwest Indiana famously gets a lot of snow.

When we prepare for them and get used to them, they’re […]

True Admission Time

By Eat This. It's Good! / February 20, 2017

True admission: I am an emotional eater! When I am stressed and alone (that being key) I can binge eat with the best of them. How do I know I am binge eating and not eating for health?It’s not purposeful eating. It’s not a meal time (usually). I often eat quickly. I’m alone. And I […]


The Clean Your Plate Club

By Eat This. It's Good! / February 17, 2017

Its working on the “Goldilocks Effect” (thank you Josh Hillis for teaching me about Goldilocks again). The “Goldilocks Effect” is eating until you are comfortable, until you are ‘just right’. You feel comfortable with yourself […]
