Three Ways to Avoid Overeating at Meals

We all do it.  Sometimes the amazing aroma and delicious flavour gets the best of us.  Especially if we’re a bit on the hungry (or hangry) side.


I’m talking about overeating at meals.


This can have a big impact on our weight, energy levels, and overall health and well being.  Of course our body needs food to fuel it and we often (usually) eat amazingly healthy foods.


But we may still overeat.  In this post I’m going to give you three solid tips for preventing that from happening.  Seriously!  If you can make these three things a regular habit and part of your daily routine you’ve got one up on the overeating cravings. Continue reading »

New Year Detox Part One- Eating and Moving

new year_Healthy

It’s a new year and for many that means a renewed focus and interest in self-improvement, including detoxing from the recent holidays.  While wanting to be in good health year round is your priority…we all need a reminder and a tune up from time to time and the New Year is a great reminder to detox our cells and improve our health…because as you know – without good health, we are nothing.

So, all year long, we move our bodies at Move Your Body Studio in Bobcaygeon and 3 times per year, the Busy Mama Detox, which is an online detox program available world-wide is offered.  This 12 week program breaks down your day into small parts and offers you strategies to detox that little area…until your whole day is cleaned up.  Small changes…BIG rewards. Check out www.busymamadetox.com for more info!!

Here are a few strategies for your short and long term health…

Go GREEN….your cells love green. What can you add to each meal throughout your day that is GREEN? Keep it small, add it slowly and soon enough it will be routine.

Breakfast – I love making green juices or smoothies.  Here are a few I enjoy.

Elvis Parsley Get Your Groove On

Lettuce Enjoy this Smoothie

Purple Nut Smoothie   

Also, it’s easy to slide a piece of celery, plain or with nut butter, beside your morning breakfast (and your kids). Top a poached egg onto some lightly steamed or raw spinach.


Lunch – Sometimes I’ll have another green smoothie, a kale salad or whip up a concoction like this:

Two Minute Green Salad:

1 cup thinly sliced kale (squeeze a ½ lemon over it with some salt and pepper and let it soften up while cutting up the rest of the ingredients)

½ cup thinly sliced cabbage

Handful of raisins

A carrot peeled into ribbons

Handful of sprouts (optional but super nutritious)

A handful of walnuts

A Drop of MTC oil or olive oil

Mix all together…delicious…be adventurous..throw in some hemp seeds, maybe some cranberries, onions – whatever you have on hand.


Dinner – toss together a beautiful salad, steam some veggies, crunch into some edamame…endless green options!!!

2 great salads & quick dressing

Cabbage (coleslaw) salad  

Kale Waldorf Salad

Take the Grocery Cart Detox Part One  and Grocery Cart Detox Part Two

The old adage of “you are what you eat” is both simple and true.


Move Your Body– There are no negatives to simply moving your body.  Get up and get active.  Depending on your goals – find what suits them! Here are but just a few routines to get you going…there are lots more at www.tanyamorrison.ca
