Natural Remedies For Seasonal Allergies/ Hay fever

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Ahh finally nice warm weather! Unfortunately, for some of us this also means itchy eyes, nose, and mouth, sneezing, coughing, etc. It is so annoying that you cannot fully enjoy the beautiful weather. I have been experiencing seasonal allergies for the past 16 years and now my younger daughter has symptoms too. Although, it is not so bad when we are outdoors it gets worse […]

Chipotle Vegetable Curry

A few years ago, my family made the brave 🙂 decision to practice ‘meatless Monday’, a day dedicated to eating no meat or seafood products. We do eat eggs and dairy, but you can take it further and opt out of them if you want. It wasn’t such an issue for us of eating too much meat but, rather, we simply wanted to enjoy the […]

The No Fail, No Excuses Way To Reach Your Health Goals In 2017

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Walking is such a good low impact exercise, and it’s one of the easiest and preferred ways to get your daily movement in, but sometimes we just don’t do it. I love walking when I am on holidays, visiting beautiful places, and on weekends with my husband. But the thought of walking alone for the sake of getting some exercise was not very appealing to […]

I Didn’t Eat Meat For 28-Days !

A few weeks ago I decided to embark on a 28 day (mostly) raw vegan detox to get rid of toxins and heal my body from Candida overgrowth. Before starting the detox I was quite nervous and overwhelmed about how I will do it for such a long time. I have never done a detox where animal products were off the list, so my concern […]

You read food labels because you want to know what you are putting into your body, but have you taken the time to read the labels on skincare and cosmetics you use? Some of us have been using a lot of products on our skin especially those who are into the latest makeup trends. All those products are just chemicals and when you count them […]

Clean Out Your Fridge!

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Uncategorized

A few days ago I was cleaning out my fridge, and I realized that my fridge door is so much emptier now compared to what it looked like about 3 years ago. My family never had loads of sauces and dips, but we did have some of the staples such as mayonnaise, ketchup, a hot sauce, salsa, and maybe a favorite salad dressing. What’s in your fridge? Do you have […]

Are avocados fattening?

Posted 3 CommentsPosted in Uncategorized

“But avocados are fattening! They are not good for you!!” I often hear this from people who are trying to follow their doctors recommendations, whether it’s to reduce their cholesterol or keep their blood sugar/diabetes in check.   Well yes, it’s true that avocados are high in fat. A one ounce serving (30g) of avocado roughly contains 4.5 g of fat. That’s often not even half […]

What are you waiting for?

“Oh, I’ll start eating healthy from next week.” “I’ll start my morning walks from Monday.” “Oh there’s so much going in my life right now; let things calm down a bit and I’ll take care of myself starting next month.” New Year’s is right around the corner, and I’m sure you must be thinking of setting your resolutions. It could be to start exercising, eat […]

I’m thrilled with one of my clients who has been so creative in adding more greens to her diet. She’s been sending me such beautiful pictures of her meals, which just shows that eating greens is not actually that difficult after all.              Nature has created a SuperStar Team of vegetables and fruits, each of them having their own unique benefits and […]

Cool School Salad

Last week, as I was driving my 11 year old daughter back from school, she was complaining of being “Really hungry!!” and I told her that she needs to eat more vegetables to keep herself full. The next words out of her mouth completely shocked me. She said “ Mamma, how about you give me salad for lunch tomorrow?!!” I could not believe what I […]
