My Secret to Keeping that Spark Alive: 8 Steps for Manifesting with Your Partner

My husband and I stayed up until 2am last night on another one of our dream dates… Like with any high vibration conversation, time passes by and it’s the middle of the night before you know it! Here we are, just hours until the New Year, tucked away in a little cabin (in the middle of nowhere in snow covered northern Michigan), cozied up to a beautiful fire with note-pads, pens and wine in-hand (and our little one sleeping just a room away). And after one of those more stressful parenting days…

Top 5 Ways Bone Broth Gives You Deep, Soulful Nourishment

There are lots of articles out there that tell you all about the health benefits of drinking bone broth… everything from healing your gut, protecting your joints and strengthening your bones and teeth, to boosting immunity and giving your skin that healthy “glow.” And while I agree with all of these things, the healing of broth goes deeper than that. Deep into your bones - pun intended. :) Bone broth is an ancient tradition of true nourishment. It’s literally your gut’s bestest friend. The…

9 Kitchen Tools That Make a Nourishing Lifestyle All the Easier

Cooking [from scratch] is “the single most important thing we could do as a family to improve our health and general well-being.” – Michael Pollen I often get asked by clients and friends something along the lines of… “How the heck do you stay true to real food with all the rest of your ever changing, everyday commitments?" The truth is, years ago I embraced a mindset shift. I am fully committed to living a lifestyle rooted in nourishment. To me, there’s just no other way. This is without a…


A Plea for Cleansing: Why Your Health Depends on It

As you know by now, my husband and I recently completed 10-days on the Master Cleanse. Both of my last two posts about cleansing, “How To Know When You Need to Cleanse” and “A Health Coach’s Experience with the 10-Day Master Cleanse” - were written with love on the lighter side of the topic. My intention was to inspire you to be curious enough to do this work. Since publishing both pieces, I’ve had about half-dozen women ask for some 1:1 coaching through the process and about another half-dozen…

A Health Coach’s Experience with the 10-Day Master Cleanse

Hey! Pause for a minute. Before you dive in, please make sure you are totally up-to-speed on my recent Master Cleanse experience and check out “How to Know When You Need to Cleanse” first. You’ll be so glad you did! There are hundreds and hundreds of different types of cleansing options. The one I felt most pulled to do was the time-tested Master Cleanse - otherwise known as The Lemonade Diet. According to Tom Woloshyn, author of “The Complete Master Cleanse”, the Master Cleanse is one of the…

How to Know When You Need to Cleanse

Hollywood makes cleansing seem so sexy… In my opinion, the only thing sexy about cleansing is the results. All the in between stuff is real healing. Lots of pooping. Headaches. Fatigue. Aches and pains that you’ve never felt before… Sure, you have fleeting moments of “highs” where you have bursts of mental clarity, intuitive insight and crazy amounts of energy (short lived). But for the most part, you are pooping. Or thinking about pooping. Or crying. Or thinking about crying (well, not all…

Graduation from First Year Naturopathy Program: My Class Speech

On August 21st, following two days of intense testing, I completed the first year of the Naturopathic Doctorate program (yay!!!) and had the honor to address my class as part of graduation.

Gut Lovin' & Nourishing Peppermint Patties

We live in a society that is frightened by fats. For the past 80+ years, we've been trained to banish fat from our diet and make the switch to low-fat foods. These so called "healthy" low-fat or non-fat foods are doing far more harm than good as they are laden with refined salts, sugars, chemical additives and preservatives. These low-fat foods are not only making us fat, but very sick! It's time to say, "Yes" to fat! I encourage my clients to get in lots of healthy fats throughout the day…

Manifesting Maggie: A sweet little story about trusting your soul...

I believe in praying like you’re in charge. Because I believe you are. I believe in the power of co-creation and manifesting what you want in life. From the really big things to the not so big things. No matter the scale, I feel so incredibly connected to my soul when a thought or a desire is realized. In my experience, manifesting doesn’t just give you want you want, it brings you what you need in a beautiful, unpredictable way. My story about manifesting a cat (yes, a cat!) is a perfect…
