Whoever labeled us performer folk as starving artists is about to be proven dead wrong today. Yes the paycheck for a background actor might not afford a seat at a high class restaurant, but spent intelligently, that cutie who said only whispers in the diner is about to dine right tonight. Having the knowledge of how to buy tasty, healthy food that will stretch longer than all the sequels of Fast and the Furious movies will leave both your tummy and wallet full.
When working with clients, I love sharing all types of nutritious foods, especially the ones that can be bought for cheap but are wealthy in nutrients.

The beginning of the year always brings up lists of resolutions and goals. There is a place for that at times, and other times, a resolutions place is in the trash. Yep, you heard that right. There is so much pressure to create grand lists, become a “regular” at the gym and completely cut out carbs, sugar and dairy. Just writing that sentence makes me wanna cuddle up in sweats only suitable for the house with a big bowl of pasta topped with parmesan. My idea of the way to start a new year is to clean the clutter on the outside which inadvertently cleans the clutter on the inside. read more

I recently received a gift and inscribed on the box was two powerful words,
This rang so true to me. Often we look externally for things, people or achievements to make us happy. When really, it all stems from the internal. What we already posses inside.
So how do we stay half glass full? It’s all in this video, “Top 5 Ways to Stay Happy!”
“Can I get you something to drink?” We are constantly being offered beverages, coffee, a nightcap, and often tempted with drinks that deplete our energy, vitamin levels and promote mood swings. Gosh, if only there were magical potions that promote health, longevity, sustained energy, beauty…yes beauty, and increased memory. Well step right up to this month’s, “Health Uncensored” blog because I’ve got a taste of what you want right here!
Nothing is more exciting than the words, “You’ve got an audition!” And at the same time, that phrase can make your pits sweat, heart race and anxiety course through your blood! There are many moments in the business of entertainment and life as an entrepreneur, that require balls out courage and showing up with confidence. It’s imperative to utilize these anxious feelings and make them our bitch.
With a number of dietary and lifestyle choices that ease anxiety and nervousness, it would almost seem like self-sabotage to make choices that encourage these crappy feelings. As a performer, or anyone who wants to take control of their emotions, what we put into our bodies not only feeds our cells but our brains too! So, let’s stock up that noggin with the essentials needed to make anxiety lose the job!
It’s so easy to get caught up in the c-word. Oh, ya know, comparison. Even when we achieve impressively high goals, we don’t stay in that feeling of accomplishment as long as we should. It takes one measly scroll through Facebook to instill feelings of inadequacy and maybe even anger. Or is that just me? Lol. Then we wonder, “Does he/she ever feel this crappy emotion too? Maybe they’ve just got it all figured out?” Unfortunately, since we are all human, these emotions come and go. But, it’s about letting them go fast and minimizing how often they come.
I don’t know who the heck originally said this phrase, but they are spot on. “Comparison is the thief of joy.” Makes total sense, right? You book a guest star on your favorite comedy and could not be happier. That is, until you read the #blessed #actorlife post of your fellow classmate who snagged the lead in a short film. This comparison literally robs the joy from our own life and radiates negative energy out. This can be applied to all areas of life, not just entertainment. Why do we think the grass is greener when we’ve all got weeds the neighbors can’t see? Believe me, I suffer from this thinking too! The forward movement comes from focusing on our own growth, accomplishments, the small things that make us really happy and practicing gratitude. These healthy habits shift our vibe and mindset.
Lights, camera, kale! The real action happens when we fuel our bodies with foods that make us glow so bright we create a buzz without the expensive publicity. “Wow her skin is radiant, what thick hair and that radiant glow! I’ll have what she’s having!”
We are slowly shifting the conversation from who’s your doctor to what are you eating? This makes me happy as I raise my green smoothie to cheers this way of thinking. Every time we eat or drink, we are making a decision in one direction or another. Foods that fuel us or drag us down!
Let me say, I think it’s important to consume foods, thoughts & habits that make us our best selves. But – for the purpose of this blog, I’m going to share the top choices to make you red carpet ready!
