Meet Embody’s New Holistic Health Coach–Kristina Borza

Get to know our new NYC-based Holistic Health Coach, Kristina Borza. 1. What motivated you to become a Health Coach? The connection between my health and what I put into my body became real to me at a very young age. I struggled with constant headaches and digestive complaints as a child until it was discovered that I was suffering from gluten enteropathy. I was 11 years old and very unhappy about having to give up certain foods (this pre-dates […]

Your Guide To A Digital Detox

“Digital detox” and “digital diet” are two catchphrases I’ve seen used a lot lately in the wellness sphere. Or maybe I just noticed these phrases used so often because frankly, it’s what I needed to do. Living life with 100 tabs open in my mental “browser” can quickly become my norm if I allow it. Between managing three e-mail addresses, two Instagram accounts, a Facebook account, a blog, and (my guilty pleasures) Snapchat and Pinterest, I could easily be glued […]

Your Processed Foods Are Lying To You

You’ve probably heard the advice to “shop around the edges of the supermarket.” There’s some truth to this. You’ll find fresh produce, meats, eggs and many other whole foods stocked around the perimeter of the market. But this piece of advice has its limitations. If you want good cooking oils, whole grains, dried herbs, spices, beans, nuts and seeds, you usually need to venture into the actual aisles of the supermarket. This is where things get tricky. Within the aisles […]

Flourless Gluten-free Pancakes Using Just Two Main Ingredients: Banana and Egg

Yes, you heard right: just two whole food ingredients. We can’t get over how simple and healthy these are. Protein, fiber, potassium, nutrient rich powerhouse of a breakfast with no grains! We are huge pancake fans and typically have them once a weekend. It’s my husbands “specialty”. We make them using healthy gluten-free and local ingredients but were excited to find this gem of a recipe. We couldn’t resist to superfood these up EMBODY style with chia, flax, hemp and […]

Anti-Inflammatory Banana Muffins

I love to cook, but I am not a baker. I experiment in the kitchen, making concoctions and adding in a little of this and some of that, an avid recipe reader, but not a very good recipe follower. So, baking, which is more of a science than an art, is not really my forte. So, when Olivia’s first birthday approached and I knew I wanted to make her a healthy Smash Cake, I got a little anxious. How would I make […]

Curried Split Pea Soup (Vegan, Simple and Nourishing)

This vegan, protein and fiber packed soup is super simple to make and extremely satisfying. The creamy texture, robust flavors and powerful health benefits make this a recipe you will make again and again. It keeps well in the refrigerator or freezer and can even be used as a bean dip once cooled! Why split […]

Mediterranean Style Egg Frittata

Eggs, glorious eggs! We eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner or as a snack. Eggs are pretty much the perfect food (unless you have an intolerance, of course). Each perfectly packaged egg contains 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of heart healthy fats, generous amounts of B vitamins, folate, selenium, vitamins A, D, E and K and calcium and zinc. Eggs are also an excellent source of choline, a nutrient critical for brain growth and function. So eat up! These eggy […]

Recipe: Cookies You Can Feel Good About Eating!

My nieces live across the street from me and stop by often, which I love! They are 9 and 7 and full of energy and laughter. They frequently ask if we can bake something together. Something delicious, easy enough for them to help make and healthy! Yes, healthy! These requests are always spontaneous, so we have to work with whatever is stocked in my pantry and fridge. And of course, our creativity. This morning we made our second version of healthy […]
