If you are anything like me there are a million things in this crazy world that trigger stress every single day!! It’s a minefield out there!!! Often times I take comfort in Nextflix and Icecream! Maybe half a bag of Reese’s. Or my ultimate favorite, a whole sleeve of Oreo cookies!
All of these things make me feel better. They give me comfort and focus my attention on something other than the stress that is building. …


SELF LOVE Is Essential For Your Growth

Valentines Day is this weekend!!!
Even if you do not typically celebrate this Holiday, I want you to take the time to honor and love yourself this year! Because you are the most important person in your life!
Say it with me..

“I am the most important person in my life!”
Learning to love yourself is the first step in personal growth.
We practice self-love

  • when we speak kindly to ourselves.
  • when we take care of ourselves.
  • when we have boundaries and honor them.
  • when we have clarity and live authentically.

Self-care, self-love…


For many years I tried and failed to quit smoking. Honestly, I did not want to quit. I liked smoking. I liked almost everything about it, if you are a smoker you know what I am talking about.

Picture this… (or maybe you don't have to because you have lived it!) You go to the doctor for your checkup. Have a physical exam…


At 26 I viewed myself as healthy. I viewed myself as healthy even though I was a smoker, I did not exercise regularly and my diet was… Let’s just call it inconsistent. I was young and felt good so of course, I assumed I was invincible and had absolutely nothing to worry about. That was true until it wasn’t. I went to the doctor for a routine physical, routine for most people, it had been a few years for me. Everything seemed to be in top-notch shape. My doctor recommended I quit smoking, Yes, I know. Other than that, no…


You have seen the pictures of the 60-year-old vegan woman that doesn’t look a day over 40! You probably think to yourself “it must be good genes, no one looks like that from eating their vegetables.” I also had that same thought and boy was I wrong!!

Four years ago I committed myself and the planet to go plant-based and never looked back. I am not perfect but close enough to be able to see and feel a difference in the way I look. I am most definitely aging backward!

Eat those Vegetables!

Here are a few of my favorite plant-based recipes loaded…
