Just in Time for Holiday Shopping

My E-Book is Now Available on!

I am passionate about letting people know how significantly a low-fat, whole food, plant-based lifestyle can affect our health and likelihood of disease.

That is the only way we will be in the best position to make lifestyle decisions in the best interest of ourselves and our loved ones.

So as we near the end of 2014 and look forward to a new year with new aspirations, please think of loved ones in your lives that would benefit from a fresh start.

Please help me to spread the word that has the potential to help so many people by sharing with them my ebook.  It's available on Amazon for $4.49.

Give the people that you care about the best possible chance for a vibrant, long, and healthy life.

Thank you.


The Secret Side of Food: How to Heal Yourself in the Kitchen
(Caution: This series may cause weight loss!)

Join Gianna Thomas, Julie Cerrone, and me at the beautiful Avani Institute in Peters Township next year for a workshop series you won't want to miss.
With the beginning of each year, we all aim to be healthier, but too often, we fall short of our goals.  Begin 2015 armed with the most powerful tool available - knowledge!
Learn about what foods you should avoid and why; how your food choices can impact your ability to prevent, arrest, reverse, or more effectively battle chronic, degenerative disease; find out what GMOs are and whether or not you should be concerned about their presence in our food system; and leave with the resources to apply what you've learned in your everyday life.

I highly recommend that you try to attend all 4 workshops as they build upon each other:

Monday, January 12, 2015 7-9 pm
Monday, January 26, 2015 7-9 pm
Monday, February 9, 2015 7-9 pm
Monday, February 23, 2015 7-9 pm 

The cost of this series will be determined shortly.

Are You in Debt...
Oxidative Debt???

Plants use carbon dioxide and water to create carbohydrates (get it? carbo-hydrate).  Then we consume carbohydrates and oxygen to create the energy that we need to power ourselves, especially our muscles and our brain.  However, this biological process is messy and results in the creation of free radicals.  In fact, numerous aspects of everyday living produce free radicals.  Why?  Because a variety of vitally important functions within our bodies require oxygen, and oxygen is a very unstable molecule.  During the course of normal, biological, chemical reactions, the oxygen involved can become damaged and turn into free radicals.  Free radicals can damage our DNA, our cell membranes, and can cause us to age.  In fact, if free radicals attack a cell's chromosomes, the cell can lose its ability to control its most basic functions, including reproduction.  It could start to multiply out of control, which is the beginning of cancer.  So why would we have evolved such critical internal procesess that result in such destructive by-products?
