All Olive Oil is Not Created Equal!

Have you ever gone shopping for olive oil and been completely overwhelmed by the myriad of choices?  Extra virgin, cold pressed, expeller pressed, light, refined.  And why do all the bottles seem to look exactly the same?  That's usually when the panic sets in and I end up picking the one with the prettiest! If you've got a few "pretty label" bottles

Lessons from the Blue Zones

What if I told you that it's entirely possible for you to feel as young and healthy in your 90's as you did when you were in your 20's?  If that sounds too good to be true then you have not met the people living in the Blue Zones! That's right.....these folks have essentially cracked the code and found the secrets to living a

Let’s get this party started!

The Chinese New Year, also known as the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, is the most important festival in China.  The celebration, which officially begins on Friday, February 12th, is the first day of the new year in the Chinese calendar.

Need a little extra immune support?

As we continue our journey into the new year, I believe it is still so important to remain vigilant and continue to strengthen your immune system in order to maintain good health overall. Under normal circumstances, a healthy diet, lifestyle and mindset would be the key components to accomplishing your long term health goals, but life is anything but normal these days.  Because

No mud…No Lotus

Happy New Year, my friend.  How are you feeling as you begin your journey into 2021?  Are you feeling relieved that 2020 is finally over?  Are you filled with hope for what the new year will bring?  Or, like me, are you feeling completely exhausted from a year that has tested you in so many ways?  Wherever you find yourself on

Cinnamon spice makes everything nice!

I love, love, love cinnamon.  Even as a kid, I loved cinnamon.  In fact, one of my all time favorite comfort foods when I was growing up was warm toast with melted butter and lots (I mean lots) of cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top.  The cinnamon/sugar combo would melt into the butter and, oh my was soooo

Lessons from Narwhal

The other day I was scrolling through my emails and came across this surprisingly sweet video about Narwhal, an absolutely adorable puppy who looks a little, shall we say, "different."  You'll know what I mean when you watch the video. The first time I watched the video, I was so busy looking at this little guy that I missed the underlying message completely.  It wasn't

I’m filled with gratitude!

Today is about giving thanks and I want to thank YOU. Thank you for being a part of my life and for allowing me to guide you on your healing journey.  I could not do what I do without your love and support and for that I am truly grateful. As we celebrate this day of giving thanks,

Feeling stressed? Try this! about a stressful month!  First we had the elections (no shortage of stress there), next we heard the reports of an increase in Covid cases and on top of all that, the holiday season starts next week.....yikes! Let's face it, these days life feels pretty stressful.  And when you are feeling stressed or anxious, one of the first things that changes

It’s pumpkin time!

It's official......pumpkin season is here and I am loving it!  I just bought my pumpkins last weekend and, although I have not carved a pumpkin in a really long time, I'm thinking this might be the year to bring back that tradition.  It could be really fun as long as I don't carve my fingers in the
