A Personal Note from Peggy

“When we were first introduced to Dr. Peggy Malone it was just like how everyone else meets her, it was because our bodies were hurting from athletic activities. Unlike other medical personnel we have seen, she explained the injury, the cure and how to prevent it. I was intrigued by this because Dr Peggy makes her living treating people and now she educates us on how to prevent from seeing her for more treatments.
‘Mindboggling,’ I thought at first but as we grew to know her through other visits we realized she really does care and is interested in more than just the injury.
Fast-forward to the present, my wife has run 3 marathons one which was Boston, 6 around the Bays and numerous half marathons. I have run one marathon and 7 around the Bays and half marathons. Dr Peggy did not only treat our “career ending injuries” but also got us mentally ready for the races.
To any person that has that nagging injury my opinion is go see Dr Peggy she will treat the injury and educate you on why you are hurting but best of all will make you feel good inside and out. Thanks Peggy because of you our bucket list is getting shorter and our health is great.”

The Terrible Toos
By: Dr. Peggy Malone
Spring is here and with it comes a change in the movement of your body in the garden or getting back into a sport.
Many people are guilty at this time of year of what I like to refer to as ‘The Terrible Toos’.

Fun in the Kitchen with Dr Peggy
Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup of coconut oil
3 tbsp of raw honey
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
1/8 tsp of sea salt
1/2 cup of shredded unsweetened coconut
3/4 cups of high cocoa percentage (>70%) chocolate chips (you could also use gluten free, dairy free chocolate chips)
2. Melt the honey and coconut oil together in a sauce pan on the stove
3. In a large bowl mix together the coconut oil, raw honey, eggs, vanilla extract and sea salt.
4. Stir in the coconut flour, shredded coconut and chocolate chips.
5. Line and baking sheet with parchment paper and on to it drop large spoonfuls of dough.
6. Bake for 12-15 or until golden brown.
Here is my disclaimer on this recipe. These cookies are delicious and they are extra amazing for a cookie that has no dairy, gluten, refined sugar or grain… but they don’t really taste like the chocolate chip cookies your mom used to make… they are more coconut flavoured and so they almost taste like a chocolate chip macaroon cookie.
