Kermit was Wrong: It IS Easy Being Green!

Polly Pitchford - Thursday, January 16, 2014

On my dry erase board I have a title: New Year's Resolutions, and two headings: My Health and PEPTalks.  Under each I wrote down a few important changes and improvements that I want to accomplish to increase the vitality of my body and increase the success of my business.  I look at it every day as a reminder of what I've set out to do and you know what?  Eating Greens Everyday is the only thing on the list that I've stuck to.  Yay me!  It's definitely a vitally important food habit to get into because green leafy vegetables are the rockstars of the vegetable kingdom!  Per calorie they have the most nutrient density. That means that they have the most vitamin, mineral, phytochemical and antioxidant count than any other vegetable per bite.  More bang for the buck, as they say.  Read More

Sitting Down is Killing Us

Polly Pitchford - Wednesday, October 30, 2013

The human body simply isn't built to sit for long periods of time.  A hundred years ago, when we were all out toiling in the fields and factories, obesity was basically nonexistent.  But since we can't exactly run free till the end of our days, we have to help our bodies in other ways.  We have to stand up for our right to stand up!  Read More

How To Reduce Inflammation

Polly Pitchford - Monday, October 28, 2013

I can’t think of one example where being “inflamed” is a good thing.  A pimple, your temper, a toe, your speech, your digestion…nope, not one.  They all hurt, they all cause stress and they are all wished away by the person bearing the torch.  Read More
