Eating for Health

You know, the older I get, the more that eating seems like a minefield. I just want to eat in peace and drink my glass of wine with dinner and not worry about pesky things like changing metabolism or the temptation of the bread basket. Registered dietitian Lisa Johansen walks us through how we can eat for health – and guess what, it’s not by dieting. Eating for health, on Keep it Juicy!

Sourdough Lessons

I’ve been trying to perfect sourdough and it’s left me feeling kind of crumby and crusty.

Bread is considered one of the most humble of foods. Little did I know that humble bread would humble and humiliate me in a battle to doughy death.

Meet “Juicy” Carrie Morgridge

Meet “Juicy” Carrie Morgridge. Carrie’s a philanthropist, and she and her husband recently rode mountain bikes from one end of the Continental Divide to another. You might think it takes loads of money to be a philanthropist – Carrie married into the Cisco Systems family after all – but she didn’t always have money and she talks about how giving has always been a part of her life. I kind of wish I could bottle Carrie’s energy!

Why We Give

What makes you pull out your wallet? Is it your mood, or is it how worthy the cause is, or is it something else? Psychology actually has some thoughts on that. We talk about why we give.

Space in Love

It’s almost Valentine’s Day.  I read those Hallmark cards about my spouse being my other  half and I just think they get it wrong. You need to have space in relationships. It’s just a matter of figuring out how much space you need, and how much is too much.

Mindful Relationships/Nancy Colier

Psychotherapist and mindfulness teacher Nancy Colier talks about mindful relationships.  You might think that being mindful in a relationship is just about paying attention to your mate…and it is…but it’s also about paying attention to yourself and the thoughts and emotions you bring to the partnership. Nancy talks about how to show up and how to deal with a really bad day — and  how to leave yourself open for the butterflies of love.

Side Hustles with Amanda Dixon

Amanda Dixon, an analyst for bankrate.com, says her company has done a study showing that we’re doing more side hustles than ever before. What’s a side hustle? We used to call it “moonlighting.” You know, that little extra job for that little extra cash. You might be surprised at why we’re side hustling these days…and what we’re doing.

Rituals

So, how have you been doing on those New Year Resolutions?

Have you lost weight/exercised more/become a better person? Yeah, me neither. The difference is that I don’t do resolutions anymore. I just can’t seem to stick to them, even when I try. I know that you have to do something new for a certain amount of time and then it becomes a habit and, before you know it, you’re a new, improved version of yourself. I just can’t seem to get the old, unimproved version of myself on board.

I’m not alone. According to a psychologist in US News & World Report, 80% of resolutions fail by February.

So, I don’t do resolutions anymore.

Instead, I do rituals that mark the changing of the year. Resolutions don’t make me feel like I’m getting a fresh start, but rituals do.
