4 Ditch the Reality TV & Nightly News &
Watch a Feel-Good Documentary or Two
...Because reality TV is, in reality, no bueno for the brain. Nor is negative news.
When was the last time you saw a "feel good" film that made you hopeful?
5 Stay Cozy in Sustainable Cashmere Sweatpants Or...
All Birds - Wool Runners & Wool Loungers (in black for NYC & gray for East Hampton)
The MOST comfortable shoe you will ever own. They look great on men too!

A few reasons I love both Everlane and All Birds brands.

Latest Fave Liquid Nutrients to Help You Thrive This Season: Teas, Protein Smoothies, Soups, Grab n' Go Greens n' More...
Just in time for the busiest holiday weeks, I'm sharing my old school and recently vetted fave selects with you! Many of the recipe and online selects are EXCELLENT for when you’re traveling over the holidays (or anytime). As an ongoing part of Optimal Mind Living, I recommend at least one mostly liquid nutrients day: Bulletproof coffee, plant-based, protein shakes, blended green veggie smoothies, hearty soups, bone broths, etc., every week (or more when needing a wee reboot).
A mostly liquid nutrients day can be especially helpful at holiday party time when many of us are feeling less than our best, consuming more calories, carbs and caffeine, running around town more and getting less sleep than usual,
On those days of your holiday events and/or the day before & after, go liquid until 5PM.
Consider one of my below DIY or grab n' go breakfast, snack and lunch faves, This way, when you go out at night, you’re hydrated, nourished and can enjoy even more fun holiday foods and drinks without worrying as much about the additional carbs n' calories.
See below to understand what I mean by a mostly liquid day. Liquid does NOT mean processed.
* Nutrient dense = Optimal Mind Body Protocol:
Allergen Free - NO: Gluten, dairy, grains; Low Carb - must have fewer than 8 grams total sugar per serving; Healthiest Fats - grass-fed ghee, coconut oil, flax and/or olive oil.
