YUM Smoothie to Perk you UP!

Have you noticed that the more aware we become about healthy eating, the more we preach to others. I know, the intentions are to share with people about things to improve their lives, etc. But it’s really annoying for those who are eating the way they are, and here we are saying things like “you

Spicing it up in Da’ kitchen!

I love my afternoon refresher, Real Masala Chai (Spiced tea). I have found when I get the afternoon slump, it’s time to get perked up. Now it’s not all the caffeine in this concoction that boosts me. It’s the medicinal spices that create a natural surge of energy and benefit my body and mind! The

Committed to breakthroughs, getting smacked down

My client asked me the other day “How do you get through life’s struggles and not get caught up in the storms?” This is a question I have gotten in the past, like I know how to be enlightened, right?! I’ve wondered if the answer we are all looking for is… “Well, I am enlightened

Cooking up a Storm, and My FAV Lunch recipe.

Wrinkle Wrinkle little star…

As I age, I start to see my mom in my face. It used to scare me but now I feel that I’m moving into that wise woman that she is. I sometimes hesitate saying “I’m almost 42 years old (young)…” And then I feel honored to have made it this far, and to be

AyurVedic Astrologer Guided my Life to Be All That I Could Be!

15 years ago, when I began my true hearts desired life path, I was living in Vancouver, Canada. Previous to this passion-filled life, I was completely lost, and had no idea what I was meant to do in this lifetime. I was out of balance, working in retail, doing some light acting (mostly in scene
