    Do You Feel Like Everything Is Bad For You?

        A lot of us focus on everything that's bad for us - everything in our environment and our food that's harming us and making us sicker. While it's important for us to know about those things, it's equally important to be able to focus on the solutions and live joyfully instead of fearfully. —Read More

    Easy Step To Avoid Pesticides Linked to Cancer, Autoimmunity and More

    Are you focusing on the wrong approach to healing? So many of my clients are concerned about their carb/protein/fat ratio or their omega 3 fish oil pills.

    Warm Potato Cucumber Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette {Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Vegan}

    I recently created this salad for the Take Back Your Health Retreat in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and it was a favorite.

    Magical Peach Arugula Salad by Amie Valpone of The Healthy Apple

        Last spring I was attending a very large conference called EXPO West. It's a trade show for natural products including supplements, foods, skincare, and pets.

    Chocolate Chip Cut-Out Cookies: Heart Shaped for Valentine’s Day {Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free}

        For me, baking brings peace and calm. It's a time when I have to stop multitasking and focus on one task.

    Nutrition For Chronic Lyme Disease: Why Isn’t Anyone Talking About It?

    After sharing my natural approach to Lyme Disease in my last post, I want to focus in on Nutrition. We talked about the need for Chronic Lyme Patients to have a balanced and strong immune system, and thoroughly functioning hormones, digestion and detox pathways. Every Lyme Patient has issues in these areas, and every one of these areas can —Read More

    Rosemary White Bean Soup {Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free}

      This is a very delicious soup, I have to say. You wouldn't think bean soup would taste particularly good, but it does! And it's because of one of the unique ingredients: miso. Soup can be a difficult kind of recipe to make if you are avoiding processed foods. It's hard to make soup taste good without —Read More
