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. This is such a proud moment for me that I wanted to share with you, dear friend. After I thanked my class for choosing me to say a few words and thanked the amazing and talented instructional and support staff, here’s what my soul had to say with the beautiful women of my class: “You know - Each of us…

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…

Balsamic Vinaigrette

Even “healthy” bottled salad dressings are often filled with unwanted and unhealthy ingredients like soybean oil, canola oil, sugar, not so natural flavors and fillers. Isn’t it time that you trade out those highly processed foods, for gently processed, whole foods? Making your own salad dressings is a total game changer. You’ll proudly skip right on by the expensive, toxic store-bought dressings - for good. In fact, you’re gonna love making your own salad dressings so much that I bet you might…

Trust Your Instincts in the Kitchen PLUS My Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

One of the biggest complaints I get from clients is that they just feel stuck in the kitchen. “I need a meal plan. Or a book of recipes… Will you make that for me?” My answer: Nope. Not happening, sistah. When I first started health coaching, I’d spend HOURS typing up custom meal plans hoping to hand off a gift of true transformation. And guess what… the “need” would rapidly CHANGE. It’d move from “needing” meal plans and recipes to “needing” more time in the kitchen… Or more skills… Or more…

My Top 7 Ways to Treat a Bee Sting Naturally

What would you do today if you were Oprah? I read this question in some self-book years back and it’s always stuck with me… A thought provoking way to help you gauge how you to choose to spend your time. (After all, we really do get to choose what we do. Even if we don’t wanna admit it.) I thought about that this weekend as I spent almost all my time pulling weeds from my flower beds, picking wild blackberries and cleaning (and then cleaning some more) - all with my three-year-old at my……


My Top 7 Natural Remedies for a Sore Throat

I woke up in the middle of the night and could hardly swallow. 

Yep, a sore throat. I’m certain you’ve experienced that painful sensation before. We were on day 6 of vacation and all that extra fun caught up to me. Thankfully, even though we were living it up in our motor home, I had the remedies I needed on-hand to aid my body in healing. (I’ve added a purple heart ♥ next to any suggested remedy that is in my travel kit.) A sore throat can be caused by any number of viruses. And anytime an…


Fresh Strawberry Pie – Paleo Style with Gelatin

Strawberries are truly one of summer’s treasures!

 Most of us aren’t thinking about how healthy strawberries are as we relish in their bursting sweet flavor, but strawberries do have a whole lot to offer. They are chock-full of antioxidants and other nutrients. These low-sugar fruits satisfy your sweet tooth while supporting your immune system and helping reduce your risk of heart disease as well as other inflammation-related health problems. Unfortunately, strawberries are one of the most…
