Eating foods with flavors & aromas go much farther than just tasting good.
There’s a critical element that so many of us have not even considered when it comes to shaking spices out of their plastic or glass containers.
These herbs and spices, when in their original form, straight from the dirt, unaltered, processed, or mass produced, offer unfathomable restoration to the human body.
Herbs, roots, and spices have properties that range from anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, & natural chelation, with full cellular and microbial support for the entire human body.
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

As much as I’m involved in supporting my health, I will hid behind no blanket by admitting that I love to enjoy fine wine 🙂
Somewhat recently over the past 6 months I woke with the notorious nausea, dehydration, and spinney feeling from having a bit too much wine, or perhaps a not so great quality grape. Drinking poor quality wines don’t strike my body too well…
The morning I woke with this hangover feeling, I happened to have a small amount of oat milk left in my fridge from the batch I made the day prior. There was only about 4 oz left of it. I thought, “Okay, I just need something cold in my stomach and this last bit of oat milk sounds amazing right now…” Continue reading
Last year I experienced the worst flu of my life! I grew up with having the flu countless times, but never quite like the one last year.
This year, I’ve been fortunate enough to fight off the bug, but have witnessed so many around me falling like flies to the flu.
To be brief, last year I was bed ridden for an entire 6 days straight. Three out of the 6 days was with a 103 degree fever. On the 5th day, I was able to conjure enough strength to make myself some soup with fresh herbs & spices I knew to be anti-pathogenic and virus fighting. I kid you not, within the first 30 seconds of my first sip, I was back to life!
Since this recipe worked so wonderfully for me, I’d love to share it with you! Hopefully you won’t need to use it for yourself.
But just in case, here you go!
