Greens, My friends with benefits

I get asked a lot about how to be healthy, or how to begin the transition into a healthy lifestyle. I understand it can seem daunting at first, but want you to know that it only gets easier once you make the initial decision to, as Nike would say, “just do it”.

To start, I want to talk about nature’s most powerful alkalinizers – greens.This past Friday, I wrote pH & Your Health – FOUNDATIONAL TRUTH to help people understand the very foundational principle to a healthy body. If you didn’t get a chance to read that post, please read it now, since everything I say moving forward will be built off of that.

We live in a world of modern nutrition. Almost everyone has tried one diet or another and calories, carbs, fats, proteins, restriction lists etc… plague the “health” market. Diet books are best sellers, meaning most people want the truth, but don’t know how or where to go to find it.

Oranges (aka “sunshine balls”) are one of my favorite fruits, and for good reason. They look like sunshine and are the perfect winter fruit to keep you going when all you can think about is a warm sunny beach in the midst of a February snowfall.

Homemade Crunchy Gluten Free Granola


Homemade Crunchy Gluten-Free Granola 

My husband always loves to have something crunchy to go with every meal (bread, crackers, chips, croutons, etc…). Since “crunchy” options are not always the healthiest options and I am transitioning to be gluten-free, he now uses this granola to satisfy his crunch fix. He eats handfuls of this granola plain, sprinkled on salads (cute, right?), with greek yogurt and berries, or in a bowl of iced almond milk.  When we run out, he asks me when I am going to make more of this crunchy, satisfying staple. Needless to say, it’s our go to recipe. I just love how simple it is to altar it with the ingredients you have on hand.

below is how I generally make mine, feel free to experiment with yours!

I give all credit to this recipe/post to my husband Ethan. I never knew a grapefruit could taste so delicious until today. Thanks to him, I experienced a new flavor combination that takes an ordinary grapefruit, and transforms it into a party in your mouth like no one is watching and get jiggy with it grapefruit. Seriously.

Orange Ginger Juice




   – 4 large Navel Oranges

   – 1 inch of fresh Ginger root

Cut or peel off the skins of the oranges (I use a knife to cut off the orange rind and leave parts of the white bits *-bioflavanoid bonus-* on the orange to make it go more quickly)

Cut off 1 inch of Ginger root (or more — adjust to your taste preference) *Keep the peel of the Ginger root on it, unless it is shriveled then you can cut it off and still use the Ginger inside.
