I'm guessing that by now you've heard plenty of hype about how sugar is "poison" and all the reasons that it's harmful to your health. The truth is, that whether or not you consider yourself addicted to the sweet stuff, there are several reasons that you will benefit by going without it for a while.

Beat the snow day blues with this "Beachy" diffuser blend
It seems every day I'm discovering new ways to use (and LOVE) my DoTERRA
Essential Oils. Not just to make my home smell amazing, but to reduce stress, to help cold symptoms, for dental health, and even for delicious recipes!
My clients often come to me looking for an option for a clean protein supplement. They want a protein source that is all natural, dairy free, gluten free, sugar-free, paleo and has no gritty taste. Something that they could even use while on the 21-Day Sugar Detox. I thought there was no such thing. Until now.
It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Quite frankly, this year the holidays couldn't come soon enough. With all of the noise and intense energy that has been going on in the aftermath of the election, we could all use a break. It's time to surround ourselves with family and friends, good food, and LOVE. During these next few weeks, we need to stop, breathe, and reflect on all that we are grateful for.
This weekend we will be celebrating Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, which begins Sunday evening. So many people have asked me what I'm making that I thought I would share my menu with all of you! These gluten-free, paleo recipes are great not just for Rosh Hashanah, but for all the holidays that you will celebrate over the next few months.
Planning to travel while trying to eat healthy might sound like a one-way ticket to the danger zone, but it doesn’t have to be! Packing smart, portable snacks will help you feel prepared and in control while you’re away from home.
I got to bring home some leftovers from the #Ayurvedic Vegetarian cooking class I attended last night with @holistichealthinista! I am not a vegetarian but learning techniques for cooking vegetables, soup and raw cheese was a educational and delicious experience. This was a digestive mung dal soup made with spices to enhance digestion. Mung beans are not paleo but they are the most easily digestible bean and I have been testing them out to see if they work for me. It was served with green cabbage and kale made with black seeds and spices, topped with homemade cheese (paneer).
