I thought this would be very timely given we’re all still talking about New Year resolutions. So here you go – some real tips to follow through on your resolutions and achieve real results…

October is National Liver Awareness Month. Are you ready to love your liver?
I love mine. Dearly. After reading this, you’ll love yours too.
About 5.5 years ago, when my health pretty much exploded and I was lost in the maze of conventional medicine, one of the complications I had was medication-induced hepatitis (inflammation of the liver) and pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas).
Trust me, it sucked.
No thanks to that and a cluster of many, many other health issues, I was laid up in bed for months. I had to leave my career and go on disability for the ensuing two years.
We go around looking for the holy grail of “work-life balance,” and fail to find it again and again. It’s fleeting at best, it’s the promised land that seems as far away as ever as we paddle furiously towards it, trying so hard to get there.
We think that, if only we did things “right,” we could have this magical equilibrium between our personal and business lives. One that makes us and everyone around us happy.
By definition, however, balance is a state of micro-adjustments, not a single, perfect, static state that you can hold indefinitely.

Having reversed several autoimmune conditions plus Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which once led to my sleeping up to 20 hours a day for months on end, I have no intention of ever heading back there again. These days, my new default looks something like this: bouncing out of bed and sustaining a steady stream of energy all day until my body gently tells me it’s ready to go to sleep again at night… no matter how demanding my day.
I knew I had an intense writing day – a “heady” day if you will – ahead of me today so I needed an energizing, flow-enabling, sustaining breakfast that was quick and easy to make. Here’s the result, using some of my current favorite ingredients right now.
This is a high-protein, high-fiber, highly delicious smoothie that’s very simple to make.
The incredible nutritional tally in this single tall glass of pure goodness and love:
- 15 gr protein
- 23 gr of fiber ~ you’re getting more than 65% of your recommended daily intake with breakfast alone!
[SAD fact: most Americans get only 10-15 gr fiber a DAY.
If you think all diets are cringe-worthy, think again. A good “diet” is one that is deliciously varied, flexible, rich, and that works for your unique body and lifestyle. Evolving your relationship with food can help you stop with the fads, restrictions, and “shoulds” and discover a way of eating that your body, taste buds, and life can all thrive on.
Delicious Health Presents The 3 Levels of Evolutionary Eating TM
Level 1: Impulsive The most primitive way of eating with very low bodily awareness. You go by the dictum “I want” and make choices mostly based on perceived convenience and immediate gratification. Often lends itself to mindless or emotional eating, unwanted weight gain, burnout/fatigue, and a host of chronic health issues.
