To Detox or Not?

To Detox or Not?
The world we live in is filled with way too many toxins.  They are found in our food, our environment and just about everywhere we go.  The problem I see is that these toxins find a place in our body to live.  In some people they may create a digestive problem, weight issue and the list goes on. Toxins are stored in our fat cells.

I believe in nourishing the body.  When we work together with an elimination program; introducing herbs and foods that can heal the body the toxins can slowly make their way out of the body without creating additional health issues for people.

Why Fermented Foods? (amazing lacto fermented Kimchi recipe below)

My “gut” tells me that most people have no idea that there is a difference between the pickles or sauerkraut that you can get in the supermarket vs the lacto fermented vegetables you can purchase (in a few places) or make in the privacy of your own kitchen.

So what really is the difference?

Lacto fermented vegetables are filled with probiotics that help our gut digest and assimilate our food

Lacto fermented foods are raw and without any chemicals added

Almond Snack Balls - Healthy Snack
"I love it when my clients say to me that they need to have a sweet snack every day"  It's interesting to me that when they say sweet snack they are generally referring to cake, candy, soda or something that isn't going to nourish their body, rather it will be harmful to it, lowering their immune system and potentially adding unnecessary weight to their body frame.

What is unknown for many is that in only a few minutes you can make a snack that will not only give you the sweetness you crave but will also be nourishing to your body.  One snack is the recipe below

Probiotic Shots
There are days that you just don’t want to eat sauerkraut or kimchi to get your probiotics.  These probiotic shots will fit perfectly into your daily schedule

Turn your fresh vegetable juice or bottled vegetable juice into fermented tonics. And the best part: it has the same potent nutrients as a fermented pickle. It takes only minutes to create a batch of Probiotic Shots: just water, salt, juice and brine left over from lacto-fermented pickles.

What does Spring look like for you?

What does Spring look like for you?
For me as soon as I see dandelion flowers popping out all over the place, reality sets in, Spring is finally here. 

The dandelion is a tough tenacious plant which is know for its ability to survive almost anything and to spread herself far and wide. The bright flowers look like little suns, full of energy and power.

When you look at the energy of dandelion, she is a tough cookie. Have you ever tried to pull a dandelion, her roots extend far into the ground.It reminds me that dandelion is so useful for people who are very intense. These people are hard-working, over-stressed and many times very irritable. They cram too much into every day.  They need to learn to let go just like the puff ball of seeds that the dandelion has later on in the season.  Does this sound familiar??
