Take a look at my seventh appearance on Huffington Post Live! This time I had the pleasure of being joined by Ben Turshen, Claire Davidson, Tara Cousineau and the always lovely host, Nancy Redd. The topic? Overcoming Social Anxiety. It's an issue that affects many, but isn't frequently talked about. I hope you enjoy hearing our different perspectives and get some tips on how to overcome it if you struggle yourself. Enjoy!
When most people think of salads, they think boring, bland and worst of all - not filling! This salad has a variety of textures, is bursting with robust flavor, is packed with essential nutrients (including protein) and will fill you up like a proper meal should. Whenever my days are packed with clients, training sessions, or meetings, this is my go-to meal. It's quick and easy prep makes this a great salad for anytime of day.
Today is a day of traditional celebration. It’s a day filled with ghosts, ghouls and goblins, cartoon characters and Disney personalities. A day where little boys dress up as their favorite superheroes and little girls are draped in princess and ballerina attire. By midday, most neighborhood stores are sold out of candy, while parents are preparing to take their kids out for a night of Trick or Treating.

As imperfect creatures living in a flawed society, we are often faced with many emotional and psychological barriers. We deal with fear, anger, frustration and sadness. But one of the most uncomfortable hurdles we are forced to deal with almost daily, is pain.
Generally we view pain as a negative feeling; something uncomfortable, leading to prolonged suffering and distress. I often wonder, could pain affect us in a positive way if we changed our view toward it?
It’s no secret, we’ve all dealt with pain. Whether from a breakup or mourning the death of a loved one. No one is exempt from pain, including me. As uncomfortable and displeasing as it may be, pain provides an opportunity for purification. It brings with it the possibility to become better.
