The Role of Health Coaches

Have you ever thought about why rates of cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses continue to rise, despite increasing healthcare costs? We tend to normalize illness based on how widespread it is in the United States, but illness is not the normal state of our bodies. Read More

Summertime is here. AND so are the healthful fruits and veggies you should be eating now to help improve your fertility.


I hope everyone is enjoying nature as much as I am while everything is in full bloom and beauty. I've found myself three times this week walking over to my neighborhood park which has a community garden that I admire. I find it helps me re-group and center myself when the day of “doing” has me feeling like I am a hamster in a hamster wheel. Try it out sometime and report back ;)

Currently, I am getting a CSA box (what you see in the picture above), but patiently waiting for our rooftop garden to be finished. I'll share pictures once progress is made. (If you're interested in learning more about the CSA box program reach out to me here, and I’ll recommend a couple farmers I like based on your needs

Here are my top 5 summer categories of fruits and veggies (*fyi I'm in Chicago) that will help your fertility:

1. Dark leafy greens (spinach, kale, chard, beet greens, collards, micro greens);
2. English and sweet peas;
3. Berries (raspberries, blueberries);
4. Root veggies (carrots, beets); and
5. Summer Squashes (zucchini, yellow squash)

* Remember to buy local, pesticide-free, organic, non-GMO. See the Environmental Working Group's Dirty Dozen below to decide which organic produce to spend your money on. A good rule of thumb, be sure to buy organic produce for anything that doesn't have a tough skin or exterior.
