Constipation: The Hard Truth

By Maureen Rieras, MS, CNS, LDN The word constipation is usually used with a hushed tone. People make sure no one is looking before saying in a low voice, “I’m constipated.” Society pokes fun by telling people with a certain concerned look on their face, that they look constipated. Before getting to solutions, let’s start with a definition. Constipation is defined as having less than three bowel movements a week, in which the stools are dry, … Read More

A $9.99 nutrition boost!

Hang tight folks, this post may not be for the vegetarian faint of heart. At TSW we talk nutrition. A. Lot. Not everywhere, not every time. And we’re not preachers of one particular way – that would completely undermine our belief that each person is unique and no one way is the right way for everyone. So no worries, you won’t be ambushed by any of us with a lecture on being Paleo, Vegan, Pescatarian… … Read More

What you need to know about drinking H2O

Proper hydration isn’t always as simple as drinking enough water. WHAT?! Whether or not you are hydrated can be a bit more complex than what color your pee is and whether or not you are thirsty! Sometimes “my pee is super clear” actually means your water is running right through you – like a dry plant where the water runs right through or off the soil. Many of us are full of pride and proud … Read More

Humans welcome.

It’s ok… I know you’ve been binge watching garbage on Netflix and going to bed late, even though you know you’re tired. I know you sometimes eat fast food because you’re starving and it feels like the clock is running against you. Not only that, the effort in getting out of your car to get something healthier seems like too much effort; even when you’re craving healthier. I know that sometimes you feel crotchety and you yell at the … Read More

Judgement-free zone

We’ve been including the words “judgement-free” in several of our class & workshop descriptions lately. Judgement-Free Nutrition Zone, judgement-free prenatal yoga classes, judgement-free regular yoga classes… Judgement is more of a feeling we impose upon ourselves: we fear our bosses will judge us if we don’t get certain projects accomplished within a certain time frame; we fear our mother will judge what we’re eating or wearing; we fear our father will judge what car we decided to … Read More

Gut Check: 6 non-food ways to get gut healthy

I get excited coming out of the cold seasons into the warm ones for many reasons, and one of them is the availability of local, fresh produce. Going to the farmers market really gets me delighted about food again. And, since I wouldn’t call myself someone who enjoys cooking, it also makes this a more bearable “to do” on my list. Since I am not into cooking, I often get a little lazy…a pizza here, an order of Chinese … Read More

Sam inspires us to make sure we rest enough within our fitness routine and … Read More

A street vendor in NYC recently received some press for selling bone broth in coffee cups as a cozy, nourishing treat/meal. The story about him then got picked up by the Washington Post and some other news outlets and went viral. Why the hype? What is bone broth? It’s simply a soup broth made by boiling chicken or beef bones with water, some seasoning, and sometimes added veggies. It’s something many of our grandmothers made, … Read More
