Many of us are so busy trying to accomplish so many things on a daily basis, that we don't take the time to just sit and feel. We become good at ignoring what our bodies are trying to tell us. Perhaps we hear a slight whisper telling us something hurts or isn't quite right. Tired, exhausted and not feeling right, we tend to reach for comfort in the form of food, alcohol or drugs.

Your Amazing body is speaking to you and you owe it to your life to sit and listen carefully. If you take the time, you will hear it loud and clear. Perhaps it's just dehydrated or just needs some go...

I am a Huge believer in keeping your gut healthy. A major portion of your immune system lies in your intestines. If your gut is healthy, you have a much better chance of warding off illnesses and staying well.  

With Cold and Flu season fast approaching, I like to stock my freezer with some jars of rich and healthy bone broth. I use grass fed beef bones or organic free range chicken bones and a few organic veggies, like onions, garlic, carrots, parsley, and celery. You can also add some ginger root, rosemary, dried mushrooms, or other herbs. Roasting the bones first...

We all have a special light in us. Some of us don't let it shine very often, and others walk around glowing their stuff. I believe that compliments go a long way in helping others shine. We live in a society, where pointing out the negative is so easy. What if we chose to find the good in people and things. It's easy to do once you remove judgement. 

Being healthy and whole, doesn't just stop with your food and exerciser, Love and Compassion are Vital nutrients as well . If you want to make the world a better place, try sharing goodness with others and help them shi...

I have been obsessed with my weight for as long as I can remember. I recently have come to terms with all of this nonsense. I decided that feeling good versus how much I weigh was the key. If you focus on feeling well, instead of looking perfect, you too may find that the weight balances itself. 

With my experience and education, I have come to discover that weight management and health, not only go hand in hand, but are Much simpler than we make it to be. I live on a Pro Diet. It's more of a life style than a diet, and very simple really. It's a very basic way of eating...

Often we want to give gifts or prizes to our children for doing well or being good. Like getting a bonus at work, we want to reward them. What if, instead of giving things, we gave them some of our gifts. I am quite proud to say that I have become a Grandma once again. Nothing is better than sharing a part of my time and knowledge with the next generation, by giving time and teaching them some of the pleasures and necessities in life.

Children want to please us and they really want to do grown up things with you. So, instead or rewarding them with candy or wasteful...

Water is a Key component to your health. Like a plant, we wilt without enough. For many years I waited tables, working late shifts and living off of coffee during the day and then a glass of wine or two to unwind in the evenings. In addition, I live in a very dry mountain climate. I figured my relentless chapped lips and dry cracked skin was due to the thin air I breathed. Then, I started this Craze Diet that required drinking loads of water and prohibited Alcohol and Coffee. Almost immediately, I saw enormous changes in my lips, skin, energy levels and bowels. A bonus was t...

Happy New Year to you. With the holidays over, many people look upon the New Year as a Fresh Start. We make promises to ourselves to eat better, lose weight, save money and so on. I believe that this is a perfect time for Healing.

The world needs our help, and there isn't a Better Time than Right Now! When we start to be kind and compassionate to others and to the environment, we will naturally start to be kind to ourselves. Healing can start by simply smiling. Healing can be as easy as making a promise to eat organic as much as possible, kind to you and the planet. Heal...

Let the Eating Season begin !

It starts with Halloween candy and doesn't stop until January, at which point, many of us will make a promise to ourselves to change our ways in the New Year.

 Food unites us. It not only sustains and heals us, it gives us great pleasure. Food is what connects people to traditions and childhood memories. During the Holidays enjoy these wonderful gifts from family and friends, but keep this in mind, food can also be hugs.

It Heals, Unites, Gives and Sustains you. (HUGS) 

This Holiday, let food give you HUGS and Choose wisely, so...

Nutrition and what is our bodies need is much simpler than it seems. If you start reading about the latest Diet Crazes, or the newest Super Foods, it can become overwhelming to say the least. Should I cut out gluten, should I avoid all sugar, Vegan,

Low Fat??? What is Truly the best diet for your health?

Although there are many different health needs and environments that are part of the equation, the answers to a healthy life and body is truly quite simple. Eat lots of  Fresh and Organic produce whenever possible. Try to avoid too many processed foods. If you eat at meat and...

Please don’t take your health or life for granted.

I continue to see people make unconscious or careless decisions with their bodies and the planet.

Eating processed and chemical laden foods, smoking, or abusing other indulgences.

These choices ultimately effect yours and the planets wellbeing.

Yes we all like to indulge and there always seems to be an occasion or excuse to do so. But even in these situations, more than likely, you have a healthier option.

One day you may find yourself fighting a preventable disease or feeling tired, heavy and sluggish. So, Starting Today…….why n...

It is so easy to blame our genetics or the food industry for our unhealthy bodies.The truth is we are the ones in charge of our well being. We need to trust in our Bodies, Trust in the choices we make. You do know what is best for you and this planet.

Our Amazing bodies don't need much, but they do need some basic things to be well and balanced. Sunshine, Clean Air,Clean Water, Clean Foods and some Love and Laughter. That is a pretty simple list for a very special life. 

If you just replace processed packaged foods with some fresher clean choices, you are on you...
