Tools, tips and resources to help you create

a happy mind, a healthy body and your best life ever!


Favorite Book Recommendation! 
Dr. Dean  and Anne Ornish’s book is a gem!  It details how to create a healthy lifestyle.  I am forever “preaching” about the importance of tending to the foundations of health and happiness…sleep, exercise, nutrition and stress reduction.  This book shares that  holistic view of wellness and offers ideas in each of these areas.
Give it a read…you’ll be healthier and happier for it!


Remember successful, long-term weight loss requires lifestyle changes.  Hoping these tips will help you reach optimal health.  And I’m just a phone call away to help you with your transition to a whole food plant based diet! 


Awaken your spirit and re-prioritize your life with these
journal starters…

If nothing were stopping you, what would you do with the rest of your life?
  1. Is there something that seems to be stopping you?  What is it?
  2. How might you respond more creatively to blocks or limitations?
  3. How would you begin?
  4. What support do you need?
  5. What support would you be comfortable receiving?

And finally, finish this sentence stem:

What my spirit knows I need to do next is…

You’d be surprised by what comes up when you spend some time journaling the answers to these questions.

Taking time to sit, journal, meditate, enjoy nature or just simply “breathe and be” will help you re-connect to your spirit and re-invigorate your life!

Make some time for journaling this week!

Tips & Tricks
  • If you are making this recipe gluten free, I recommend you buy gluten free bread and toast the bread then process it into bread crumbs.  I like to make all my breadcrumbs from whole grain toasted and processed bread.
