Happy October! One Healthy Hamptons is going PINK for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Did you know that 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer? Sadly, we all know someone, at least one person, who has suffered with breast cancer. So, what can WE do?? Until there is a cure, we can spread awareness and take preventative measures against known causes. Make it your October goal to make some healthy changes to decrease your odds while increasing our health. Are you with us??


The obvious? DON'T SMOKE! I don't know why anyone in this day and age would pay $$ to get cancer and stink. Please just don't do it.

Exercise! Get moving! Whatever workout you like, do it! Getting your heart pumping increases good estrogen while decreasing the bad. It also strengthens our immune system and aids in maintaining a healthy weight, which is a huge factor in cancer cell growth.

Decompress. Today. Right now. Make YOU a priority and do something to destress everyday. Even if it's just deep breathing for five minutes or a 15 minute nap. Stress inhibits the immune system, so decompress and rest up! Doctors orders!

Do a little yoga. Make it a priority to get to a class or practice at home. Yoga not only reduces stress, it also balances hormones, which play a huge role in cancer development.

Above all else is FOOD! Nutrition is a SUPER important factor when fighting cancer of any kind and it's even more important for prevention. According to breastcancer.org, diet is partly responsible for between 30-40% of all cancers. Eat a healthy diet. Get your antioxidants, and limit sugar (cancer's best friend.) That means more vegetables, fruits, and healthy fats in their purest form. Less processed crap. Nutrient-dense foods, especially plant-based, increase our alkalinity, which makes it a whole lot less pleasant for cancer cells to grow inside of us.

Are you sensing a pattern here? These are all no brainers, all things I preach weekly. Daily. Hourly. Yes, balance is important and we're not all perfect. We're not going to eat healthy, work out, meditate, avoid sugar, do yoga, and get fresh air every single day. But, do your best. It's a new month and a new chance to make small changes towards a healthier you.

If you like the sound of that but aren't sure where to start, email kiley@onehealthyhamptons.com today. Our fall cleanse includes step-by-step tactics, recipes, and tips to conquer each and every one of these cancer-busting strategies. Until then, think

Do What You Can, With What You Have, Where You’re At

I spent the weekend in Richmond, Virginia for a family wedding. Our flight was delayed and we arrived really late Friday night/early Saturday morning. Exhausted. Although I typically have a plan for weekend workouts to fit my schedule, whether it’s a fitness class or two, squeezing in an early run if the day is packed, heading to the gym, etc. I went to bed upon our arrival at the hotel not really knowing what the weekend would bring. I didn’t have a plan or expectations, I figured I would just wake up and listen to my body. Although I was leaning towards taking the day off after a long week, I DID know that I would feel much better the entire weekend if I did get a workout in, somehow, somewhere. Although I went back and forth on whether or not to pack my sneakers, I threw ‘em in last-minute just in case....

Wednesday, October 2nd officially marks the celebration of...KALE! Yes, kale is everywhere. Kale is trendy. Kale is crunchy. Kale is the king of superfoods. If you haven't jumped on the kale train, you just may reconsider once you've tried the classic green juice's indulgent, crunchy, yummy-in-my-tummy friend, kale chips!

Yummy (in my tummy) Kale Chips: Preheat oven to 325 degrees and cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Cut stems off one head of kale, wash and dry. Cut into pieces and spread out on cookie sheet. Massage kale with coconut oil (no more than a tablespoon total.) Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Bake for about 20 minutes or until crisps. Let cool and serve as chips. SO good!
