By Marisa Weiss, M.D. on November 15th, 2012 Tags: , , , ,

The only way to truly recover from breast cancer and get to a new normal is to take the time to heal. Time certainly helps. But when you think about all the attention your physical body gets through and beyond the process — from radiologists, pathologists, surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, plastic surgeons, physical therapists, etc — it’s no wonder that your mind, spirit, and…

To Cook or Not to Cook — That Is the Question

By Marisa Weiss, M.D. on October 3rd, 2012 Tags: , ,

 

My food goals are simple. I want to eat healthy, nutritious foods that taste good and are easy to prepare. Plus, I need to eat a lot to feel satisfied, so I eat a lot of vegetables. Whenever possible I buy my vegetables from organic sources, especially if they’re on the Dirty Dozen list, because they provide the most bang for my nutritional…

Should You Worry About Your Tampons and Pads?

In an earlier Think Pink, Live Green column, I talked about the best fruits and veggies to buy organic, especially if you’re on a tight budget (who isn’t these days?). We all want to know how to get the healthiest bang for our shopping buck.

But what if your local store carries little or no organic produce and there’s no farmers’ market close by?…

Ditching Disposable Dishes for Good

By Marisa Weiss, M.D. on July 25th, 2012 Tags: , ,

Summer, for me, means picnics on the beach, barbecues poolside, lunch on a hike, and late dinners on my back porch. Anything to get outside and enjoy the warmth and fresh air.
