How to Improve Your Body and Mind One Meal at a Time

Healthy food recipes and tips from Dr. Mark Hyman.

What the heck should I eat?

That’s the question we all have with news of shady food business practices, harmful additives, and the rise of diseases like cancer, alzheimers, and dementia.

I’m not sure about you, but I have an inkling suspicion that our food is the answer but also our downfall. What the heck do we eat when almost everything is dangerous for us? How do we trust packaging when companies are not held accountable for listing ingredients?

Well, I have the answer for you – and it comes in the form of Dr. Mark Hyman’s new book, Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?

This book was life changing for me. I have learned exactly the best foods and supplements to eat that are not only healthy, but help fight certain types of health conditions I’ve been having.

What Food: What the Heck Should I Eat has done for me:

  • Helped me stop by sugar cravings
  • Made me a super sleuth about finding true organic food
  • Helped me find out which foods I was sensitive to
  • Get rid of my acne that was triggered by food
  • Saved me money on healthy groceries
  • Helped me get relatives and friends to eat healthy while battling an illness

Food: What the Heck Should I Eat? by Dr. Mark Hyman

My relationship with food….

My relationship with food has always been complicated growing up. I was born premature and have always been below the average weight of children my age.

On top of my predestined health, I grew up in a family where food was a tool of competition, guilt, and control. Without going into too much detail, my family came from separate parts of the world and had their own food culture which was thrust on me at a young age.  And they would use food as a form of bitter competitiveness between them. At age 8, this was just a tiny glimpse of what an unsuccessful marriage looked like – and I already knew it wasn’t going to work.

I will write a more open post about my food journey next, as a lot of these childhood issues with food stemmed from actions not of my own. You become who you surround yourself with – so be careful and always know that you have the ability to change your destiny.

I ate like crap and felt like it too. My skin was raging with acne as a teen because of the food my family ate: full of hormones, additives, and oils. No dermatologist was able to help me.

All that changed when I started cooking my own food. And especially after my illness, I knew I needed to take charge of my life and buy food that was truly healthy. If other people wanted to stick to what they knew, fine. But I decided a very long time ago I would not be a slave to my past food issues.

All of that changed when I read Food: What the Heck Do I Eat?

Why you need this book

If you want to take control of your diet and health, you need this book.

Food: What the Heck Should I Eat is perfect for anyone who wants to eat the right foods for their body and health conditions, eat foods that are organic and additive free, and for those who want to learn about the secret practices of food and medical companies who promote “healthy” things.

Here’s a secret: we’re being lied to and Dr. Hyman has the research to back it up.

I got both the print and audio version so I could read and listen to this while traveling or working from home. It was an experience – I would look for snacks, remember what Dr. Mark said, and choose the best option for me. This evaluation experience really helped me cut my sugar addiction!

This book also helped me become a super shopper. I would point out all the harmful things I learned about in the packaging of foods. One day, I even got someone who overheard my conversation put back a frozen pizza! The information is THAT life changing.

You can still enjoy food while being healthy…

Healthy food being gross is definitely a myth I once believed.

“It tastes of nothing!” I used to exclaim while trying to eat vegan food. Thankfully, Dr. Hyman is all for the Pegan diet = paleo + vegan. I don’t have to sacrifice some of the foods I love (like poultry or meat) to be healthy.

Food: What the Heck Should I Eat not only gives healthy alternatives, but when you get the book you’ll also get access product and food recommendations and  to Dr. Mark’s mailing list and website which contains so many healthy recipes!

Dr. Hyman doesn’t just give you this information and leave – he gives you all the resources you need to start your detox and change your life. Not bad for under $30!

Change your life, one meal at a time

Since reading this book, I’ve given many copies away as presents to friends and family members. I truly believe it is life changing. I want those around me to live long, healthy, and happy lives. And that starts with them taking control of their health and mindset. The best way to do that is through food and that is what Dr. Hyman has taught us all.

And if you’re interested in his book, you’ll love his podcasts too: House Call with Dr. Mark Hyman, Broken Brain Podcast, and The Doctor’s Farmacy. Dr. Mark has been able to heal himself and thousands of other patients just through food.

  • What do you do when you want to pack light but like a lot of outfit changes? 🤔👗 Why, still pack all the outfits, of course! 😀
Ok, i know, unrealistic, right? But it is possible! On my last trip I packed a whole weeks worth of outfits in a carry on - new outfit each day too. It was such a great success that I decided to write about what packing tips have helped me the most. And please, none of that "get this new suitcase" stuff 😂 Any old suitcase will do!

  • My photographer thinks that this particular pose reminded them of pictures of vintage hollywood stars. Also calls this the “Princess Margaret” because it’s a pose she did that we took inspo from. What do you think?
Being timeless is not just about what you wear, it’s an attitude 💄🕶
In middle school & high school I wore berets, trench coats, and loved everything vintage. I was the odd one out. But now I embrace a really timeless wardrobe. It’s classic, simple, but still glamorous.
Click the link in my bio to learn how to look timeless in just 5 easy steps. And no, you don’t have to wear only vintage. I am proudly a modern vintage blogger and everyday clothes can still be timeless!
Let me know what you think of the post!
The dress I’m wearing here was from @modcloth - several years ago (but it still fits like a charm). The camera, however, is not reproduction. Authentic vintage circa 1930s/40s.
  • I'm all for accessories that look expensive but are in fact, such a steal. This beautiful purse for example? $24! Don’t you just love things that look expensive but aren’t?
Looked gorgeous for the rosé terrace event. I was surrounded by luxury handbags and all I could think was "oh my goodness, this purse looks even better"
If you're looking for the perfect blush or straw purse, this one is it! Click the link in my bio to shop, or watch my stories! You can also shop my daily looks by following me on the app #liketkit
  • There's a rule for the Printer's Row Lit Fest: If it doesn't rain at least one day of the Lit Fest, it's not a proper Lit Fest! And rain means good luck.
And what luck I've had meeting my new friends at @thecoopersouthbank - a new residential property opening up near the Chicago River's south branch! I just checked out their tent, learned about their amazing property (it's gonna have many amenities & things to do), and of course, checked out some books! #thecoopersouthbank #ad
Stop by their tent: JJ and check out all the wonderful books for sale, learn about their artistic roots in Chicago, and grab a tote so you can pile dozens of books into - believe me, you'll need it!
How many books do you think I'll buy today? 10? 20? Who knows....
  • The world looks better through rosé colored glasses 🕶 Happy #nationalroséday 🥂
Spent the loveliest afternoon at the Roses & Rosé Garden Rooftop party at @thegwenchicago - If you’re local (or just visiting) make sure to check out this hotel! It was the perfect Rosé party with delicious foods all made with Rosé!
It’s beautiful. The words I would use to describe it is simply luxurious. The interiors are sophisticated but subtle with deep colors & metallic accents. The rooftop was spacious yet very cozy. I secretly wanted to take home the chair I was sitting in! 😂 Don’t think I would have gotten too far.
I had so much fun dressing up for this event. I wanted to show you my lace dress but I ended up taking this close up instead 📸 My lace dress is linked in my bio & if you watch my stories, you can see my whole look!

  • Probably looking at pictures of cats 🐈
But when I'm not looking at cats, I'm working 📸. Eternally grateful I can use my iPhone to take quality photos for myself and my clients. I say this all the time and i'll say it again: you do NOT need an expensive DSLR to take pretty pictures for your blog or business. Practice, hone in on an editing style, and play around with light. The more you practice, the better you'll get.
Phone accessories like tripods, and ring lights can help. But you really only need one thing - a case! Sometimes when I'm trying to take the perfect flatlay shot, I drop my phone 😱 Thankfully, I have a strong and beautiful case to protect it 🙏🏻
The case pictured here is a Hailee x iDeal Case @idealofsweden in Striped Rose (how very vintage and Bijou!). Right now, my readers can get 20% off this case with code: HAILEEXUS
