Welcome 2011! With the start of any New Year, we have the opportunity to check in with ourselves to see what area of our life needs a little “fine tuning”. Do you crave more balance and time with your family? Do you want to finally (and I mean finally!) take off the weight that has been bugging you for months and/or years? Or…do you simply want to feel more energetic, livelier and a more active participant of life?

Whatever your goals may be, I encourage you to start by writing them down. Why? Because writing and visualizing what you want creates an unexplainable momentum for change that works each and every time. As Harold Whitman so eloquently once spoke, “ Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

I wish you a year filled with joy, laughter, health and feeling alive!

Wishing you best health,

Dr. Joey Shulman DC, RNCP

Ella’s creams
As a “cream junkie”, I love when I find a great new and natural cream.
My latest favorite is Ella’s botanicals Lemon Meringue lotion – it is truly amazing! Proudly Canadian, Ella has been making natural, handmade products for over 10 years.

Ingredients are carefully chosen and blended, balancing therapeutic value with fun and enjoyment, always keeping in mind the impact we have on our planet.

Tofu Shirataki
Looking for some low calorie faux pasta? Try Shirataki noodles! These low carbohydrate, translucent and gluten free Japanese noodles can be found in most grocery stores. Although they do not have much flavor on their own, they absorb other ingredients well such as tomatoes or soy sauce. Rinse well prior to use.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup of edamame
  • 1 ½ cups of shirataki pasta noodles

Low Carb Nachos

Serves 2 for dinner

In university, my “go to” appetizer was a big plate of nachos! Dipped with guacamole and enjoyed with a cold beer – there was truly nothing like it.

Unfortunately, most nacho platters are filled with saturated fats, calories and carbohydrates. So…in order to enjoy my favorite appetizer, I have come up with a low carb nacho dish that truly delivers the same taste.


  • 1 ½ cups of Iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 1/2 pound of ground chicken, cooked
  • ½ cup of sliced black olives
  • ½ cup of tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup of chopped green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup of low fat mozzarella cheese, shredded


On a baking pan lined with tin foil, spread a fresh bed of shredded lettuce. Distribute meat, olives, chopped tomatoes, green onion and any additional toppings. Sprinkle with cheese. Heat oven to 350 and broil for 3 minutes or until cheese is bubbling. Remove immediately and serve.

Serve with guacamole or low fat cottage cheese if desired.
