(What is a vibe?) This week’s Vibe Meter is on a topic that people have been asking me about a LOT lately. It’s also something really near and dear to my heart, because I’ve had a seriously up and down relationship with coffee for years now. There was a time when I was 24 years […]

I woke up the day after Thanksgiving feeling like I got hit by a truck. I had decided it would be a cool idea to try a few different desserts at Thanksgiving dinner. No, not raw, paleo, vegan or gluten-free desserts as you might expect. We’re talking about normal style desserts here. Since I usually […]

A couple of weeks ago I got a call from a very close friend. “How are you?” he asked. “Well, I have this back injury which is totally taking over my life. But aside from that, I’m freaking great.” “You need to call Paige right now. She’s going to help you.” One phone call and […]

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been doing this new thing called Network Spinal Analysis at a place in Manhattan called Vikaz. It’s really hard to explain what’s going on there, but something is, and it feels like it’s going to be significant. It’s too soon to tell for sure. All I know is […]

Well, it’s officially fall and PUMPKIN is in the air. Everyone is obsessively flocking to coffee shops for pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin-flavored coffees. These drinks sound innocent enough, right? A little coffee, a little harmless pumpkin spice….can’t be bad. Or can it? The other day my (super awesome) personal trainer Sarah Petroski brought this […]

I’ve been wanting to write about this subject for awhile now. When there’s a really potent topic brewing inside me, I usually need to wait until it’s just begging to be written before I can actually sit down and do it. I think the reason is that I need to gather the right amount of […]

If you’ve spent time with me in person recently, you may have seen me whip out a baggie of different colored supplements at a meal. The whole extravaganza seems like a little bit much to some people (even my co-workers at Dr. Lipman’s office call me a junkie) but that’s ok. I like to try […]

I honestly don’t think a day goes by in my life when someone doesn’t ask me about my water bottle. I carry it everywhere with me, and I can truthfully say that I’ve used the same brand of glass water bottle for over a year now. That’s something that’s never happened to me before! I […]

The title of this post is kind of hilarious for a few reasons. First, what is a “spiritual practice,” anyway? It looks different for every person. Second, how would I know what diet is best for your personal spiritual practice? It would be kind of insane for me to throw out a blanket statement about […]

Lately I keep hearing friends tell me how depressed they get scrolling through their Facebook feeds. It’s pretty impossible not to compare your life to the lives of other people as you glance at smiling vacation photos, people who look blissfully in love, people portraying the most gorgeous, happy and fun parts of their lives.

I had a lot of trouble trying to decide on the name of this post. Why? Because these cookies aren’t just the best gluten free cookies ever. They are so much more than that.

There’s a cute little coffee shop called The Annex in my neighborhood (Fort Greene, Brooklyn) that has all the regular coffee shop fare – strong caffeinated beverages and an abundance of baked goods — but they also have something else, something that usually sells out quickly, something you have to get there early in order […]

I’ve always been a list person. My mom likes to fondly recall the days when I was in high school and she would come into my room finding little to-do lists tucked around everywhere (who knows what I considered as my priorities at that point – hit up tennis practice, go to Abercrombie, make a […]
