Wouldn't you love to be a (butter)fly on the wall during our Essence RD team staff meetings? πŸ¦‹ Yep. We talk about ya. πŸ˜‰ We strategize together for the BEST outcomes for our butterfly clients, because 4 heads are better than one. Nutrition is a collaborative science and we are always sniffing out ways to make client experiences and outcomes better. I HATE the idea of stagnation (also hate stagflation, shoutout to 2005 AP Econ Mon), so we are constantly evolving our practices/methods/therapeutic techniques just for YOU. And guess what? You, the clients, are our most valuable - you're the ones who tell us about all the cool fitness trends/hotspots, the latest nutrition products, restaurants, chefs, physicians, etc. So don't be shy! Speak up! We want to hear from the πŸ¦‹HIVE! πŸ¦‹ #EssenceNutrition

CELERY TOMFOOLERY. πŸ˜‘ πŸ™…πŸ» No, celery juice will not propel you to realize your wildest health dreams. πŸ™…πŸ» It will not "detox" your organs which are already doing so quite well, unless you drank a fifth of vodka last night. πŸ™…πŸ» It will not make your hair lustrous, your teeth shiny, or your eyes glimmering with anything but a reflection of green, soupy, acrid liquid. If you want to chow down on some *regular* celery; in a form that is able to be chewed, which is something you should be proud of having the ability to do (Essence dietitians worked in hospitals with pobresitos who had poor dentition/chew/swallow issues!), you go CELebrate. πŸŽ‰ Celery is an anti-spasmomdic for IBS, and a nice source of folate, potassium, dietary fiber, manganese and Vitamin B. And yes, it contains a lot of water, so you feel real hydrated and perhaps "flushed" out when you consume it. But when you juice it, you lose the satisfaction factor of mastication and while celery juice probably won't HARM you, we are legit done watching you waste your time posting frothy green monster photos of something that is just not as beneficial as your fav insta-celeb says it is. πŸ˜œπŸ¦‹ #EssenceNutrition

How do we BREAK our precious little BIOMES? πŸ€” Well. A lot of ways. It’s basically under constant assault since day 1 (but really; day negative 1; aka pregnancy). It’s no wonder that a collectively altered micro biome in our Western world (but not Westworld, phew, creepiest show) is linked to dramatic increased incidences in autoimmune diseases, allergies, and more. Before it gets TOO spooky [it’s not Halloween YET]; the good news is... we can do our best to REPAIR the biome! πŸ‘ How? πŸ“‹ Consume fermented foods like kimchi, sauerkraut, kefir, pickled things, kombucha (careful; not for everyone) miso, tempeh, and natto. We tell clients AT LEAST one per day. Lop of sauerkraut on your salad is something that comes naturally for US; let it come naturally for YOU. πŸ“‹ Stop using β€œantibacterial” hand / body washes; Triclosan is not your friend. πŸ“‹ CHILL. We’ve spoken about the gut/brain axis. Promote a healthy biome via a healthy brain. πŸ“‹ Don’t be a PILL POPPIN ANIMAL. πŸ“‹ Don’t run to a z pack at the slightest sniffle. Your PHYSICIAN will determine if it’s bacterial/viral; and be VERY mindful of how many courses of antibiotics you take per year (ideally, zero). I was DEVASTATED in 2015 when i had to take TWO (a surgery and a NASTY pathogen I picked up in Mexico) and was like - hell. my biome is now disturbed forever. πŸ“‹ Consider a probiotic supplement (multi-strain with INTEGRITY!) like @biokult_usa to complement your fermented food strategies. πŸ¦‹ #EssenceNutrition

If you're a devoted follower, you probably know (and potentially appreciate) by now that I like to go on about concepts/products in nutrition that enrage me. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Well - here's today's star: the fact that the onus falls on us Essence RDs to have to PULL TEETH to convince people to eat what I call NUDE FOODS. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Aka foods in their closest-to-natural unprocessed states. πŸ™ We are often met with intense resistance, flat out refusal, or just confusion when we attempt to convince folks to consume foods without any HUMAN ADULTERATION. We've sadly ALL been victims (in the US) of our taste buds being jaded with foods that are specifically chemically engineered to taste "better" and even become downright addictive. Millions of dollars in R+D (research and development), tons of food engineers, and even dietitians, are in the employ of food companies whose sole purpose are to engineer products that taste so different than "natural" foods that when you DO end up going for the , it tastes horrendous. Common examples: πŸ¦‹Β Β 1) Plain yogurt / kefir. πŸ₯› Sorry - is the milk that comes out of dairy animals peach-flavored? No. Then stop whining that you have to eat plain yogurt. It's not our fault that you grew up eating diabetes radioactive colored yogurts. Grow up. If we can learn to love plain yogurt/kefir, so can you. Your tastes DO acclimate over time. Want strawberry yogurt? Cut up some strawberries. Put them in your yogurt. Yes, you can microwave them with chia seeds and lemon juice and fairy dust if you want to make "jam" for your yogurt. πŸ¦‹Β Β 2) Vegetables. 🌽πŸ₯•πŸ… Yes, vegetables are bitter. Do not eat raw arugula. But you can dress up veggies in so much love - olive oils, avocado, vinegars, spices, herbs, mustards, apply heat, etc. But no - they'll never taste "as good" as your "veggie chips" or "organic vegan broccoli tots" from the frozen section - because those foods have BUDGETS and marketing, whereas green pepper just has... its curvy bodacious shiny body. ✨ TRAIN yourself to love NUDE FOOD again, and even better - how about we not taint OUR KIDS' palates with ? πŸ¦‹ #EssenceNutrition

It’s ! @prescribethis asks, "What's the buzz about fasted cardio? Should I eat before I workout in the AM?" So, scientifically, YES - fasted cardio burns more fat than non-fasted cardio and allows you to more efficiently metabolize nutrients if you eat immediately afterward. But…(you knew there was a but…) 1) You may compromise performance. Now, this may not matter to you, unless you're tryna impress a hottie @barrysbootcmap (our office neighbor!) πŸ’ͺ or get revenge spinning points on your neighbor @flywheelsports. 🚴 2) If you're prone to dizziness/fainting/hypoglycemia like *moi* - don't even THINK about skipping a bite before a workout. Can't tell you how many times I've had to politely excuse myself during a workout so I don't lose consciousness (this isn't because I don't eat enough - I have orthostatic hypotension. it's a thing - meh). πŸ˜… Also, in any scientific intervention, we need to know what you hope to achieve (aka - a result). Is it a better workout? Leaning out? Sure - go ahead and do your fasted cardio and measure the results - did it WORK? Maybe it's not worth the headache (literally). And you BETTER hydrate no matter what - water isn't food - it's the substance of life (). πŸ’§πŸ¦‹ #EssenceNutrition

FOOD FIGHT!! πŸ™†πŸ» I *DISH* it all about poke bowls vs. sushi andddd smoothies vs. pressed juices in @muscleandfitness magazine. Opt for cucumber outside rolls; skip the rice and load up that roll with veggies (unless you're at an AMAZE 18 course omekase). As for juice and smoothies; I mean; do we even need to discuss how juice is an IV bag of SUGAR?! πŸ—ž by @modlizbeth πŸ¦‹ #EssenceNutrition
