Homemade Turkey Broth

Have you ever used your leftover turkey carcass to make broth? You can also get a lot of turkey that was left on the bones. Put it in the crock pot with water and spices for 6-8 hours and voila!

Breakfast Like a King

eggs over easy recipe
 "Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper" nutritionist Adelle Davis said.

The most important meal of the day is breakfast, study after study has shown that eating a healthy breakfast can help with everything from improved concentration to higher energy to weight loss.

While sumo wrestlers skip breakfast to gain weight, the rest of us should be eating breakfast to lose weight. According to Dr. Wayne Callaway, obesity specialist at George Washington University, skipping breakfast can not only trigger overeating later in the day but can also cause a drop in metabolism.

Eating a healthy breakfast is key. A recent study found that people who ate two eggs (protein) for breakfast lost 65% more weight and reduced waist circumference by 83% more than people who ate a bagel (processed carbs) for breakfast (Pennington Biomedical Research Center).

In addition to eggs, whey protein powder is an easy and healthy way to get protein for breakfast. One of my favorite protein shakes is:

    whey protein & berry smoothie
  • 1 scoop of Jarrow whey protein powder* (18 grams of protein)
  • 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup of frozen strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup of water
Blend & enjoy!

We love using our Magic Bullet blender because of its quick and easy clean up, but any blender will work.

*Jarrow whey protein powder is available at your local health food store or Kehres Health & Chiropractic in vanilla, chocolate or unflavored. To order contact Dr. Kehres at 989-607-4322 or

Recipe: Healthy Chai Tea

With the winter months approaching most people enjoy tea or coffee. Homemade chai tea is very easy to make and really tasty!

Try making it at home so you can use healthy alternatives such as coconut milk and raw local honey.

• 3/4 cup of hot water
• 1 organic green tea packet or green tea leaves
• 1/4 cup coconut milk (I use Thai Coconut Milk that comes in a can, full fat)
Cinnamon and allspice to taste
• Add a spoonful of raw local honey

It doesn’t get much easier than that, and it is healthy and affordable!

Dr. Kehres' Recipes Featured in New Cookbook

The Dark Side of Fat Loss & The Underground Cookbook
Click here to download the first chapter free

When it comes to healthy eating most people know what they should be eating, but when it comes to cooking people typically don't know where to start. Cooking healthy, real food is unfortunately uncommon as we are surrounded by convenient fast food and pre-packaged meals.

When it comes to eating healthy; author, blogger and YouTube extraordinaire Sean Croxton always responds with "just eat real food."

In Sean's book The Dark Side of Fat Loss, released October 2011, he covers a variety of health topics from efficient exercises to better sleep techniques. Included with the book is The Underground Cookbook, which has more than 80 different recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snacks and juices. Also included with many of the recipes are 40 cooking videos to show you how to make the recipes step by step.

Sockeye Salmon Patties, featured
in The Underground Cookbook
I am honored that three of my recipes are included in The Underground Cookbook! Dr. Dan's Veggie Shake, Salmon Patties and Venison Egg Breakfast Salad recipes and how-to videos are in the cookbook.

Click here to buy The Dark Side of Fat Loss, Underground Cookbook, Just Eat Real Food Food List and Food Log. This package includes a book, cookbook and a food log available for instant download to your computer, iPad (or similar device) for $39.

Let me know what you think of the book and cookbook! Have you read any good health books lately?
I'd highly recommend checking out Sean's cookbook especially if you are having a hard time making your health a priority.

Prone Cobra Exercise

If you sit at a desk for the majority of the day like most people, odds are you are going to have upper back tightness and neck pain. Sitting is very stressful on our bodies and we need to do as much as possible to cancel out that stress.

The prone cobra exercise shown in the video below is a great way to strengthen the back muscles and stretch the chest and shoulder muscles helping to bring the shoulders and head back. Give it a shot!
