One of our favorite nutritionists, Peggy Kotsopoulos explains how simple it is to improve your lifestyle by understanding how the food we eat affects all aspects of our lives, what we do, who we are, and of course, what we eat; the key to a balanced, healthy lifestyle. In Kitchen Cures, she doesn’t just compile recipes with nutritious facts, she also gives us the opportunity to have it all: more energy throughout the day, less stress, better sleep, increased sex drive, better memory and decreased depression (because each of us, or someone we love, all need help and guidance with these issues!)
Why We Love Peggy K
Peggy is a holistic nutritionist and culinary consultant. She has written two books, and Kitchen Cures is the latest. Along with founding “beVibrant“, a wellness consulting service that develops and delivers wellness programs to large corporate clients, Peggy is also the host of Peggy K’s Kitchen Cures and been featured as a nutrition correspondent on shows, such as Dr. Oz, Martha Stewart Morning Living, The Talk and many others. She’s been a contributing wellness author for Elle magazine, Fitness magazine and Shape magazine et al. With credentials like these, we knew Peggy was sure to have the expert advice we’d been searching for!
Who doesn’t want to have it all? Effortless beauty, a bikini body and the energy to have a successful career and a clean, joyful home… we sure do! And Peggy gives us a roadmap to do just that, and achieve our goals. She wants us to be the annoyingly fashionable girl who gets to work at 7:30 am after she finished her workout, had breakfast, cleaned the house and prepared all the meals for the day. Who doesn’t want to be that girl!?
“What you choose to eat each day is probably among the most important decisions you make. What you eat directly impacts your thoughts, your actions, your mood, and your psyche. What you eat is what you think, and what you think is what you become.” –Peggy Kotsopoulos
The Food-Life Connection
In Kitchen Cures, we start by learning how food affects our mood, and therefore our happiness. After getting energized with a Vega Frappuccino, loaded with antioxidants, heart-healthy fats and energy boosting B vitamins, we move on to learning about how food affects our weight, and how exactly we avoid the dreaded muffin top! Peggy investigates HOW we become insulin resistant and WHAT foods will help us shrink waist circumference. Hint hint! Yacon syrup, cinnamon and chia seeds are only a few of these miracle foods!
Now let’s move on to our beauty regimen. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on beauty products, Peggy helps us understand WHY we get black heads and puffy eyes. She gives us natural recipes to achieve optimal body, face and hair health and beauty. Watch our video and learn how to make Peggy’s Banana-Not-Chemical Peel for healthy glowing skin! If you’re having health problems, Kitchen Cures also provides explanations on various immune boosters, stomach problems and ways to reduce body pain and inflammation.
“My goal is to educate people on how to live a more vibrant, fulfilled life by making simple lifestyle changes to maintain health AND become even healthier.” –Peggy Kotsopoulous
In Kitchen Cures you’ll find recipes for every aspect of your life, from energy boosting drinks to homemade natural skin cleansers and healthy nutritious meals. You must try her White bean and Rosemary Dip recipe! It’s low in calories and has a ton of fat-loss potential! Combined with kale chips, this is a great guilt-free snack. We also LOVE the Frozen Fudge Pops, which are perfect for the summer! Make sure to join BlenderBabes for more great Peggy Kotsopoulous recipes!
