Everyone I serve this pudding to simply goes nuts. It is one of the easiest and most delicious treats to make and offers up healthy fats, antioxidants, and much more. This dish works for a treat at any time of day, and everyone seems to enjoy it — because we are talking chocolate pudding here.

The Busy Trap and How to Get Out of It

The Busy Trap and How to Get Out of It

By

I caught up with an old friend recently. When I asked how she was, she replied “Busy!” — as if I was interested in her to-do list rather than how she was feeling.

Her response isn’t unusual. Many of us answer that question with “Busy!” before listing all the things we’re doing, our partners are doing, or our kids are doing.…

How to Succeed in the WLC: Focus on Consistency, Not Results

By

A few weeks into the Whole Life Challenge, you will likely see some significant changes. Focusing on quality food choices, smart exercise choices, and even smarter recovery choices will, without a doubt, impact your health, fitness, and well-being.

It’s very cool to see the number on the scale going down, to feel the waistband of your jeans getting looser, or to know that your two-mile jog is getting easier.…

Puttanesca Sauce: An Easy Way to Dress Up Dinner

By

Don’t you just love it when a few simple ingredients come together to give you an amazing burst of flavor? That’s how I feel about puttanesca sauce.

With only about six ingredients (plus a few spices), you can create a meal that is incredibly flavorful, and perhaps best of all, it only takes a few minutes to put together. It’s the perfect meal for the family any night of the week, especially if you are starved for time or aren’t the biggest fan of cooking!…

84: Traver Boehm — 4 Ways To Face Your Fears and Test Your Limits

By

 

I asked Traver Boehm back as a guest on the podcast this week specifically to talk about the impact he’s felt from disconnecting from electronic media over the course of the past year. He’s taken multiple month-long breaks from any sort of online interaction, as well as recurring short breaks over the course of his daily routine.

This has all been part of his Year To Live Project — something he started at the beginning of 2016 when he asked himself the question, “What would you do if you knew you only had a year to live?”

One of the things he took on was a month in the wilderness with only a knife and compass (and the clothes on his back).…
