Food For Healthy Bones

Is Your Blood Sucking the Life Out of Your Bones?

I was recently intrigued by a report on PBS about how the rising acid levels in the oceans are eating away at the coral reefs.  Those mineral-rich “bones” of the sea suffer from their own version of “osteoporosis.” And it’s not just the coral.  Marine animals like scallops, oysters, and clams that rely on calcium […]

Putting Meat on Your Bones the Grass Fed Way

I like to feed my bones red meat especially during the winter months and the transitional months of spring when my body craves heartier fare. Now, you don't have to have meat for healthy bones.  But if you're a person like me who feels more energetic eating some meat,  it's a good choice. Red meat […]

Mayor Cory Booker: My Organic Food Stamp Challenge

When I heard about Newark Mayor Cory Booker's (now Senator) one week Food Stamp Challenge on the Sunday Morning Show, I was intrigued.  As a bone health and nutrition coach, I wondered whether you could not just survive but eat well on food stamps. When I say eat well, I mean eating fresh, unprocessed, organic, non-GMO […]

Your Bones: Why Eating the Whole Food Matters

By guest blogger: Margie King, Nourishing Menopause What makes an apple good for us? Is it the Vitamin C? Vitamin K or B6?  Is it the soluble fiber or the insoluble fiber? Is it the potassium or the phytosterols? Or is it the apple?  What a concept. Western science is obsessed with deconstructing food, researching […]

Shocking GMOs study will chill you to the bone!

This news is so upsetting that I had to share it ASAP. I've spoken (and screamed) about GMOs in my free educational webinar. And now take 12 minutes to view this video and you'll understand why I was chilled to my bones. Be advised this study uses lab rats and for my animal lovers and vegetarian […]

Is your heartburn burning your B-O-N-E-S? Double ouch!

Rosie O’Donnell and I have something in common.  Recently we both had the same health scare – chest pains.  I was luckier than Rosie.  Her pain turned out to be a heart attack.  Mine - we think - was indigestion. I’m pretty careful about my food, so indigestion was a puzzle.  Was I eating too […]

Your Bones and Yogurt: low fat, no fat. Is it all Greek to you?

You might have noticed by now that I’m not a big fan of dairy as your main source of bone healthy nutrients.  I like a wider variety of foods for healthy bones, including dark leafy greens, seaweeds and bone broths. But then there’s yogurt…and here’s where I have to make an exception to my dairy […]

Vitamin K: The Secret Agent for Bone Health Security

Vitamin K used to be a super secret agent.  A few scientists were privy to its powers to protect your skeleton but they weren’t talking.  Vitamin K has now been outed.  It’s making headlines and has  become the hot new nutrition celebrity - especially when it comes to strong bones. What is vitamin K?

Calcium for strong bones: are supplements better than food?

  One question I often hear from my clients is “How much calcium do I need to take every day for my bones?” The hidden assumption in that question is this:  “you have to take a supplement to get enough calcium for your bones.”  That seems to be the philosophy of most consumers and healthcare […]
