Some people think as long as its in the fridge or freezer it’s good forever. Here are the 6 mysteries that we will start to make history.
1. Mayo has a 2 month shelf life
- Zero in my refrigerator; replaced with hummus.
2. Ketchup has a 4 month shelf life
- Does not exist in my kitchen; substituted hot sauce.
3. Mustard has a 8 month shelf life
- Very common condiment to go bad.
4. Eggs – 1 month shelf life
- Hard boil the rest if expiration is approaching.
5. Meat – 1 year freezer shelf life
- Less freeze; more nutrients.
6. Canned Veggies – 2 yearshelf life
- During client refrigerator clean outs, I’ve seen 4-5 year old can veggies! Replace with fresh greens.
Put together your game plan, execute, have fun, and get fit.

For any successful week of your life —planning is essential. For optimal health, planning is critical. Answering questions like, “What days are you working out this week?”, What are the workouts going to be?”, What are your breakfasts going to consist of?” and What are your planned snacks?” are important to think through each week.
After flying in from California over the weekend I was craving those warm mix nuts they served on the plane.

The grocery store for me is a second home and often what I think of when I think of the gates of heaven opening and what I’ll see. People that know me know that I love to eat. I truly live to eat and not eat to live. Often times my family/friends and I will have the same food on our plate but the way I prepare it is more appetizing and I hear, “Can I have a bite of that”.
Retrain your brain. How you think affects the way you feel and act. List all the reasons you want to lose weight on a few index cards, place them in areas that you will see everyday, repetition is the mother of all skill.
Many people ask me, “What supplement is a staple in your life, if I could only choose one what would it be?”
The apple is one of the most widely cultivated fruit trees — did you know it was part of the rose family? — and the wonderful apple is available almost everywhere.
The lowly sweet potato is often over-looked, and sometimes despised, in kitchens across the country and that truly is a shame. More popular in the south, where sweet potato pie has earned it’s rightful place, sweet potatoes are available and affordable most everywhere.
With my brother being a culinary superstar I have recently stepped up my game in the kitchen. My favorite fish is Halibut and over the last year the sweet potato has become a staple in my home. Below is a ultra healthy recipe taken from author and one of the leaders in the field of functional medicine, Mark Hyman, from his book Ultra Metabolism.
