Indian Summer

Before we enter into Autumn, there is always this wonderful season known as Indian Summer.  It arrives during the first few weeks of Autumn.

Here’s comes Autumn!

It’s just around the corner. Autumn in all it’s glory.  Are you ready?

Summer is almost here – are you ready?

Summer is a time of fun in the sun. Typically, it is the time of year when we take breaks, enjoy vacations, celebrate holidays and more. It is a time when we love to be outdoors.

Strive, Seek, Find

I received this badge from a wellness site to say congratulations on the 10 pounds I had lost while following a simple 21-day detoxification program. Several clients have remarked that it may have been somewhat easier for me to lose the ten pounds because I am used to working out. Here’s a BIG surprise. I didn’t workout AT ALL during … Read More

WAKE UP! WAKE UP!

We’ve all been there before. That moment when every fiber of your being screams, “Wake up! Wake up! What the heck are you doing?!?” I’ve had a few of those moments over the past years.

A guy with pie

This is pretty much the reaction when I start to discuss the past 22 days with friends, family and clients.  To say the words cleanse or detox to anyone pretty much makes them want to scream and run in the opposite direction.

Why am I doing this? Because I want to feel better.  Not that I feel so bad now.  I feel … Read More

Food is not to make you feel better, happier, less lonely or more accepted. Food is fuel. That is all your body understands.  It would be as … Read More
