Slow Down and Savor Summer at the Beach

Slow Down and Savor Summer at the Beach

Sun, sand, swimming, steamers, farm stands and local wine… I spent the last week at my mom’s on Eastern Long Island where summertime is all about the beach. The beach report is on the radio every hour on the hour and the big question of the day is which beach should we go to today […]

Cherry Cacao Smoothie

Cherry Cacao Smoothie

I have to admit, all I can think of on a hot summer’s day is a bowlful of frosty, creamy, you-know-what (ice-cream!!). What’s wrong with that? Nothing… except sugar and dairy are on my eat infrequently list. New Englanders are known for their love of ice-cream. There are at least 5 ice-cream and froyo stores […]

Healthy Piña Colada Smoothie Recipe

Healthy Piña Colada Smoothie Recipe

Last week I led my annual 5 Day Summer Cleanse and one of the highlights was getting away from my tried and true smoothie recipes and testing out some new creations. I called this one Smoothie Nirvana – it was that good! It reminded me of a Piña Colada – of course without any alcohol and […]

Rebel without a Cause

Rebel without a Cause

I’m a rebel from way back. I’ve hated authority since I was in school and was told to sit still, be quiet and pay attention (but whyyy….. when it’s such a beautiful day out?). Maybe it started even before school when I first learned what the word NO meant (but I want candy!!). And yea, those rebellious boys? Of […]

Dandelion Greens – the Weed that’s Healthy and Tasty too!

It’s Spring! The time of year that you want to eat as many dark leafy and bitter astringent greens as you possibly can. Not only will these greens help you get rid of that extra coat of winter fat and make you feel more energized, they will also help you get rid of winter dampness and congestion, so […]

Sugar and Dealing with Emotions

Sugar and Dealing with Emotions

It’s so easy when I’m on a cleanse not to eat any sugar. It’s a welcome reminder of how great I feel without it. I feel clearer, calmer and way more energetic. It’s not that I eat a lot of sugar either – especially not refined sugar. But when I don’t have a strong boundary […]

Rebirth, Renewal and… Death

Rebirth, Renewal and… Death

Spring brings a lot of talk about Rebirth and Renewal. What isn’t talked about as much is… Death. And yet… how can there be Rebirth and Renewal without Death? If we truly wish to create change in our life and renew or rebirth our life in some fashion, then part of us needs to die. Whoa, […]

A Cleanse? I can’t do that!

A Cleanse? I can’t do that!

If you think cleanses are for other people – but not you.If you think that cleansing = starvation.If you think you couldn’t possibly cleanse unless you’re away on retreat. Think again. I’ve had 100’s of men and women try my cleanses and most of them weren’t sure if they could do it the first time […]
