Reflexology…it’s more than just a foot rub!

Did you know that the soles of your feet have roughly 7000 nerve endings?  Pretty amazing, isn't it?  With all of those nerve endings it's no wonder our poor feet are hurting at the end of the day.   On the other hand, all of those nerve endings are precisely why it feels sooooo good to get a foot massage.  Honestly, when I

I eat these every day…

You probably know by now that I love my veggies.  But you may not know that one of my favorite foods is sprouts.  One might even say that I am a little bit obsessed with sprouts because they can always be found somewhere on my plate every time I eat.  Now I know some of you are sprout lovers as well,

Another Year Older…

It's inevitable.....every year we have a birthday which means every year we are another year older.   We have no control over it....it just happens.  And when it comes to birthdays, it seems that people either love 'em or they dread them.  I don't know about you but I happen to be someone who loves my birthday.  Do I love getting older???? 

I’m finally doing it!!

After much resistance on my part, I am finally dipping a toe into the Facebook pool!  Feel free to laugh out loud at that one....I'm giggling right along with ya!  Now to be clear, I am not a complete newbie to Facebook.  I have had a personal and business page for a couple years now and I've posted things here

I did it!  I said "yes" to the invitation to attend REVITALIZE 2019 and I am so glad I did. The health and wellness event sponsored by mindbodygreen was held right here in Tucson at the Ritz Carlton.  As soon as I walked into the lobby, I could feel the energy buzzing all around me.  Everyone was

It’s time to remake a classic!

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  Who doesn't love a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich??  It's a classic!  When I was growing up, my version of a PB&J was two slices of Wonder bread, a layer of Skippy peanut butter (creamy not chunky) and a layer of Smuckers strawberry jelly.  Brings back memories, doesn't it?  So why mess with

What are you afraid of?

Let's face it, we all have fears.  Of course there are the obvious ones like a fear of heights or a fear of spiders but what about those fears that crop up when you are faced with everyday decisions?  Changing careers, leaving a relationship, honestly expressing your thoughts.  Have you ever wondered if your fears are holding you back from

Beat the Heat With The Food You Eat!

Staying hydrated is not only important for good health, it also keeps our skin supple, lubricates our muscles and joints and even helps with weight loss.  But let's face it......drinking water all day can be sooooo boring!  On Sunday, July 14th, I will teach you a better way in my new class.....Beat the Heat With TheFood

Do you know what’s in your toothpaste??

Have you ever looked at the ingredients in your toothpaste?  I know that's probably not at the top of your "to do" list, but if you have a minute, I suggest you take a look.  If you are using a conventional toothpaste like Crest or Colgate, I think you might be shocked to see what the
