Blender Pancakes!

I am all about making things super simple, easy AND healthy in the kitchen.  So, I created these pancakes which are gluten, dairy and nut free….and delicious!

What is a nutritionist anyway?

For years I struggled with trying to adhere to the information and knowledge I had received from my training at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition.  I would beat myself up at wanting a coffee or enjoying a sweet treat.  Part of the reason I walked away from nutrition was I felt that if I […]

Raising Healthy Children …… it is not what you think

This post is not about nutrition.  It is about raising emotionally healthy children.  The thoughts here arose from the turmoil my daughter felt at school.  Unfortunately, it is not the first time she has come home with a story about being picked on.

A new adventure!

Are you an onion?

Actually, we are all like onions because we all have layers.  However, are you willing to peel back the layers or try and preserve them?  Do you allow change or do you do everything in your power to keep life the same? We absorb, process and create an emotional experience for every event in our […]
