If You Can’t Stand the Heat…


Yesterday I took a personal ‘time out’ and retreated to the kitchen. We all have our escape, for some it’s the TV, some it’s the man (or girl) cave, for me it’s the kitchen; the kitchen is my girl cave. Creating healthy yummy food in the kitchen comes right up close to a great workout/cardio […]

Our Bodies Wisdom


When it comes to your body and food, food is medicine. Everything we consume contains nutrients, some nutrients carry the weight of a locomotive in their density and in the power of what they have to offer.
