When our body is nourished with the foods it needs and eliminates foods that cause inflammation and metabolic destruction, we can experience symptoms of the transformation and healing process.
It's important to know that our bodies are extremely resilient and are always working towards homeostasis, balance.
Providing the right environment for our bodies to achieve this balance is key. This is what this program aims to do.
Through this process we allow the symptoms or withdrawal effects to act as messages.
Listen to how your body is responding and let it be fuel to treat your soul-home with the love and respect it needs.
I touch on many of the common symptoms that can be experienced. You may experience some more than others or something completely different.
Remember each body is unique and the way it heals is also unique.
Let's touch on some of the most common symptoms that can be experienced during the program and the natural remedies we...
A powerful way to increase nutrient density in your diet is by adding more nuts & seeds to your lifestyle diet.
Nuts & seeds pack powerful energy compounds… healthy fats.
Polyunsaturated, monounsaturated, saturated, and Omega 3 fats can all be found in these little powerhouses.
They are also full of antioxidants and abundant in minerals like zinc and magnesium.
More benefits consuming nuts and seeds include:
I mean come on!
There are many ways to consume these beautiful gifts from Mother Nature.
A short mention on a Nut Study: In 2016 a meta-analysis of 29 studies of nut consumption was published in BMC Medicine. The conclusion:
”Higher nut intake is associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, total cancer and all-cause mortality, and...
Meal planning and prepping will revolutionize the way you nourish your body.
It will change the way you feed yourself and set your future self up for success.
It really doesn't take much effort, as you will feed yourself regardless if you plan or not.
Consistently setting a little bit of time each week to grasp the nourishment that will be entering your face is life changing.
We all WANT to eat healthy, but very little are willing to get out of the comfort of their lifestyle to shift and greatly improve the quality of fuel that enters their vessel.
We have to set ourselves up!
Trust me when I say, your future self will LOVE you for it.
IF you are here, I have a feeling that you are willing and that a healthy and vibrant body is worth EVERY ounce of effort.
AND I know it can also be overwhelming to start something new.
Trust me, I get it!
However, spending a little extra time to plan and prep meals actually saves you...
The idea that fat makes us fat is completely unscientific and quite honestly, a myth.
Our brains are 60% fat!
We need fat for healthy brain and body function.
EVERY cell requires high-quality fat!
Fat is vital to create healthy cell membranes... unfortunately we've been duped to think that high-processed vegetable oils are healthier alternatives.
This couldn't be further from the truth.
My goal here is to convince you that:
Not only how to source but how to cook a fat is also important.
Fats have a "smoke point".
The smoking point is the temperature at which the fat or oil begins to smoke.
Smoking is evidence of the fat's breakdown due to heat and can create a very off-putting smell and flavor.
This means that at a certain temperature the fat oxidizes and goes bad. We don't want oxidized fat for fuel. We want fats that...
This is my go-to herbal tea recipe whenever my body is asking for a little support.
It's so beautiful that Mother Nature has given us SO many incredible ingredients to help our body do what it does best, heal.
This herbal tea contains specific ingredients to help soothe the respiratory tract, super charge the gut, aid our body's detoxification process, and serve up the antioxidants it needs to regenerate.
I always make this recipe if my family or I have any type of symptoms being expressed that indicate that we are upgrading.
Immune Supporting Tea Recipe
My alarm goes off at 5:22 am.
[LISTEN TO THE AUDIO VERSION OF THIS EMAIL]
It gives me just enough time for two 8 minute snoozes, where I slowly wake up to the dark morning.
I need this time to prepare to wake up.
At 5:38 am I get out of bed, I open the doors to let the cool morning air in, I go to the bathroom, put on my warm robe, grab my headphones, and light a candle.
I love the way the candle lights up the room.
I find one of my favorite meditations or meditative music and I settle on my bed with a straight back supported by my soft headboard and extend my legs.
I feel my body.
"Good morning, body." I say to myself.
I check into the universe that carries me everyday.
It's the first thing I do.
I notice any tension, tightness, and breathe deeply into the nook and crannies that store all my shit.
I take somewhere between 8-10 deep deep breaths before I settle in.
I always feel my shoulders and belly relax. ...

Grocery shopping has become a mind-game.
Label reading is confusing and most of us just don’t spend the time to really understand what is actually in our food.
It takes a little time, patience, and practice to become an expert!
I highly recommend you investing time in reading every label on each product you buy.
Understanding exactly what you are ingesting and putting into your precious body is SO important!!!!
As you will see, it can be extremely difficult to know what food is simply by the ingredient list.
This is why it is paramount to discriminate what goes into your cart because those are exactly the foods that go into your body!
For example, you can buy peanut butter with tons of preservatives, additives and brain-starving processed oils or you can buy a jar with just peanuts and sea salt.
The choice is entirely up to you.
Being empowered and confident with label reading is one of the first steps in...
How many people do you know that suffer from digestive issues?
I know SO many and I was one of them for a long time.
Bloating, gassiness, indigestion, constipation, and countless other symptoms show up in our lives and many of us don't know understand the cause or a possible solution that doesn't include a pill or chemical concoction promising to make the symptom go away.
I want to share with you one of the most common things people consume in packaged foods/drinks that may seem healthy but unfortunately aren't.
Tell me, do you know about the different types and uses of gums in food?
LISTEN TO THIS BLOG POST HERE
Well, the majority of us don't.
I want to dive into gums a little here because they can be hard to avoid as many gums have names that sound potentially harmless.
I'll also explain why eliminating or reducing these additives is best for your health, especially your gut.
If you've been following me for a while, then you know...
Ridiculously beautiful human,
My husband and boys left for the annual school camping trip on Tuesday.
I chose to stay home.
I would usually attend these types of events and be excited to do so.
I love being in nature, around kids, and even though I'm a novice when it comes to camping, I'm down to give it a go.
A few days before they left, I vacillated on whether or not I should go.
Honestly, I had a bit of FOMO and really wanted to connect with this amazing community.
I knew I'd be missing out on some special times with my kids.
I wanted to be there to help and possibly be a buffer for my husband in any awkward social situations.
I was creating a lot of guilt around the thought of not going.
However, I knew that my cycle was coming.
The dates the trip were planned were the days leading up to my cycle.
I shared this with a few of the moms at...
