The word "cravings" gets a bad rap. Cravings are usually associated in a negative light, negative comments, and negative feelings. However did you know that cravings can actually benefit us?
There have been many studies done that show that types of music can alter the way a plant grows, better yet how you speak to a plant can also have a positive or negative affect on it's growth. Plants respond to the many ways they are nurtured and have several sensory perceptions. With that being said, if plants can grow positively according to how they are spoken to image what that same positivity can do for you? Research even shows that the words we speak can alter the chemical reaction in your brain! What can this do for your health?
Have you heard "wellness is not a destination, it is a journey?" Our society is caught up in quick fixes, quick results, and quick "food." However, your wellness is always going to be changing to match your current needs. I have been studying nutrition and wellness at least seven years now and I am always looking at new ways to better my health, clean my eating, and manage my stress.
Did you know? Blueberries are.....
High Antioxidant Superfood
Boost Brain & Heart Health
Good for Weight Loss

Well this was supposed to be my “green” smoothie in lieu of the holiday however had some issues and ended up having to add blueberries in to soften up the tang of too much lemon juice!
Today is Valentine's Day, a great opportunity to not only share the love you have for your loved ones but to also take a look at the self care you are providing for yourself.
>>•LOVE•<< yourself in order to >>•LOVE•<< the ones in your heart.

Let's talk >>•SUGAR•<<
The holidays can wreck havoc on your body & tricking you into getting addicted to sugar. Sometimes it takes weeks to get those sugar cravings out of your system...
With all these rainy fall days lately it can get frustrating. Rainy days can slow us down...but it also allows us to see the beauty in tiny things. Sometimes all we need is that “slow down”
Eating is the same way.....when we slow down we see the beauty in each piece we take a bite on. From observing the colors of our food, to really chewing each bite and experiencing the flavor to finally appreciating the nourishment we receive when eating....⠀⠀⠀
It can be a >>•beautiful•<< thing!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Next time you sit down to eat a meal, slow it down. Change the energy of the activity to appreciation. Experience each bite!
>>•apple•<< season!! I love this time of year!! 🍁 Apple Picking • Pumpkin Picking • Warm Colors • Cozy Hot Drinks! As the temp drops, we tend to head towards the warmer foods!
I have an AMAZING recipe that is perfect to eat for breakfast, as a side dish to a dinner or just a warm healthy dessert!
The warmer weather is upon us (I hope, you never know in Upstate New York). I do not know about you but warmer weather for me means A LOT more SALADS!! Recently I made this concoction of a salad that is fresh to the taste and super easy to make. Whole foods with rich flavors and lots of healing components...
People ask me all the time what do I use essential oils. My response: "Pretty much EVERYTHING!" One thing that people often forget about is not only are oils great for our health but there are so many products we can replace in our home with essential oils. I have replaced so many toxic, chemical driven products in my house for my family and our pets with things I make at home using just my oils. Below are two spray bottle examples of toxic products I now make using just some essential oils and distilled water. Below I have two "recipes" I made that are so easy:

Green, Greens, Greens everywhere on St. Patty's Day. Today is an important day to pay attention to how many greens you are getting in your diet each day. Don’t forget to get your greens in! 🍏🥦🥒 Veggies should be your largest portion each day!
A lot of people start diets the beginning of the new year. There are soooo many diet theories out there & as you decide what works for you and what doesn’t I ask you to remember one thing.....
The most important thing you could do for your health and for your weight is to read labels, choose organic whenever possible, and make sure the food you are eating and choosing to nourish your body is from a clean source!
The key: WHOLE FOODS.....
if you want to lose weight it is simple, remove processed foods and SUGAR.
I love helping others get on track with their nutrition goals! If you are looking to work with someone to get back on track contact me! I would love to help you on your journey!
Many blessing this new year to come 🙏🏻
The holidays are a tough time when it comes to sugar, treats and over abundance.
I studied Sarah Wilson’s work through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition this past year and it’s AMAZING how many negative effects sugar has on our bodies and our system. (its not just cavities people!) & not only in weight gain but it has major impact on our minds, hormones and much more. Cancer LOVES sugar.
So.....what do we do? How do we remove sugar from our diets and still have fun? Tasty treats?

2017 is finally in sight. If you had a year like me you are super thrilled to wish 2016 good bye and welcome a new year. 2016 has been both a trying and exhausting year for many. 2017 is a year of new beginnings and the past is the past.
Last year at this time I wrote a blog on "promises" in substitute of the cliche "resolutions." Promise yourself to make YOU a priority. Take care of your mind . body . soul. If you are able to do this then you are able to care for your loved ones 100%.
