Stay Cool! August 15, 2017

When you go to someone's house for dinner do you have a "special" dish that you bring with you? For me, in the summer, it is hands down fruit salad. Typically I suggest that I bring one and typically my hosts are overjoyed at my suggestion. My fruit salad varies a little but usually consists of: blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, watermelon, oranges and grapefruit. The other night however is was met with fierce competition for dessert.

Is It August Already? August 8, 2017

I cannot believe how fast the summer seems to be flying by. I always remember my dad saying: "The older you get, the quicker time seems to go". Oyyy, am I getting "older"? Anyway - that's why the whole notion of living in the present is SO important. Putting something off till tomorrow can be like a blink of an eye. It happens so quickly you don't even know it's happening. So if this was the summer you were going to eat more fresh fruits and veggies - go for it! Bike ride more and try surfing? Go for it!

You Are NOT a Tree! August 1, 2017

Last week on social media I shared this quote: "If you don't like where you are than change it. You are not a tree." I LOVE this and so did many others! Truth is, most times it is far easier to complain about something than it is to put the work into changing it. Whether it's in our relationships, work, or health, I think we are all guilty of this on some level. So please remember - you are NOT a tree - you can up root yourself and move forward without a tornado to get your started!

Kitchen Gadget Must-haves! July 25, 2017

I can definitely be a creature of habit. Does anyone else have one dish that they order from a restaurant EVERY time they go there? Doesn't matter what the specials are, doesn't matter if I ate it last week....at The Beacon, in Sag Harbor, NY, I always order the halibut and cous cous in parchment paper. And of course a salad (and martini) to start! Well OK, maybe I did have a burger once! There is nothing wrong with being consistent.

Summer Grillin’ Had Me a Blast! July 18, 2017

So often a patient will say to me: "Oh, I don't know how to cook that!" And my reply: "Guess what, until I made it the first time neither did I!" Years ago I ONLY ordered steamers in a restaurant. And I LOVE steamers. So, one day I decided I could do this. Went to the seafood market, asked how to cook them, bought them and home I went. I then followed the directions and crossed my fingers. Success!

Keeping Your Brain Sharp! July 11, 2017

Last week I lost my best friend/4-legged son - Henry. A dog's love (or cat) as you know is unconditional; no matter what you say or do, they still love you. It's a special kind of love that I was fortunate enough to experience. Henry was always there to greet me at the door and smother me with kisses, even if only gone for 5 minutes. He thought I was the prettiest mom, best cook, and a fabulous singer. (Of course he did!!)

Be A Warrior! June 28, 2017

BE a warrior! Posted this photo over a week ago on Instagram and received such a positive response. Why? I think the sentiment "be a warrior" hits home for many. If there's anything we all probably have in common is that at some point in our lives we had to/or will have to "fight " for something. Whether it be in a job, a relationship, our health, actually in the playground many years ago, etc.... Everyone's warrior may be different; however at the end of the day we are all capable of being true to ourselves and fighting for what we believe in. (OK, I'm sure being a beach shot didn't hurt either!)

Know The Facts June 22, 2017

Do you know what tomorrow is????? Probably my most favorite time of year. It’s the first day of summer! I am very grateful that I get to spend a lot of time in the Hamptons during the summer months. Yoga in the vineyards, kayaking in the bay and the many local farmer’s markets are just a few of the wonderful things I get to enjoy. Corn on the cob, steamers, burgers on the grill and sunsets, with a martini in hand of course, never gets old. So cheers to summer, let’s make this the best one yet!

More Diet Craziness! June 6, 2017

I have a confession to make - I don't eat enough whole fruit! GASP! And I'm not talking about 3 servings/day - I am talking about NO fruit. DOUBLE GASP!  You see, I am a spring/summer fruit lover; cherries, peaches, plums, apricots, berries - can't get enough of them!  And it's not that I don't like apples and citrus (actually love oranges and grapefruits), I just seem to skimp on them during the winter months. And yes, I know I can eat berries in the winter, I tell my patients that all the time, but they just don't taste as good!

And So It Begins! May 22, 2017

This weekend will be the first 3 day weekend of the summer season! YAY! And with that, for many, comes the beginning of the BBQ season.....another YAY! But (and sorry there is a but) also comes the start of overeating and drinking that happens between Memorial Day and Labor Day.  Believe it or not, I have seen more pounds gained during "bikini season" than during the winter holidays. So, a little words of wisdom: 1. This will not be the ONLY BBQ you go to all season, so leave some food behind.
