The first tea I fell in love with was green tea. Without knowing its incredible benefits, I was blown away with how it took away my bloating. I didn’t know my bloating could “Go away.” I was 13 years old when I had my first green tea experience, and it is really what catapulted me into my love for tea, and my fascination with medicinal healing agents for the body. For years, it was all I drank, and actually inspired me to work for Teavana in 2007. It was my first job, and I was in LOVE with tea all day, every day! It was an educational experience in itself, and my coworkers were THE BEST! Continue reading
One of the greatest challenges I face (and my clients) while living an oil free lifestyle is the social aspect of food. It’s a large part of social living here in the United States, and everywhere else, really.

I fell in love with granola and scones growing up on the peninsula in Long Beach with my dad over the water.
He lives on a boat in the marina, which is one of the greatest gifts in my life I could ever ask for, and is most certainly the reason why I love the ocean so much!

They carried freshly baked berry filled scones from the Sconage Bakery, called the “Tri-berry scone.” These delicious scones were about the size of your hand with your fingers stretched out, their insides filled with fresh warm berries, and they blasted your senses with sweet heaven. TO LIVE FOR!
Eating those scones over the water on a beautiful peninsula morning was instant bliss! They were also great fuel for a day of jumping off the boat docks and swimming through the marina all day from morning sun, until sun down 🙂
In time, I’ll put their scones through the HealthyHumanz kitchen lab process 😉 For now, let’s hit up the gRAWnola! Continue reading
For people that ask me if I’m vegan, vegetarian, or paleo, I honestly say neither. I personally don’t choose to associate myself with any type of dietary label, and I’d like to keep it that way. I choose to eat for the sake of my health, and advocate this for my clients as well. I believe that with proper education, we can make healthier choices that fit our lifestyles!
What does eating for health look like or involve? In my experience (including my clients), eating organic whole foods in a fermented and oil free form has been a great success thus far, and there’s research to go along with it! Continue reading
