Want to stay healthy during cold and flu season? Look no further than your own body. By now, I think most of us know that the key to staying healthy is our immune system.

Are you ready to make 2019 your best year ever? If health is at the top of your list then you have come to the right spot. The start of the year seems like a good time to address the topic of sugar. Especially if you are just emerging out of the holiday party scene having indulged a little, like me.

The number one question I get asked from people when they find out that I juice, is what’s the difference between juicing and blending and which one is better for you?

Up until February 2015 I had been living a seemingly normal life. Like most young moms, I was balancing working full time, and raising my 3 young girls. We were constantly on the move and meeting every days demands as they occurred. I was exhausted and felt like I was barely keeping my head above water. Life got even more complicated when our youngest daughter was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder, but through it all we tried to manage the stress from that situation and keep life in perspective. In the midst of this whirlwind, I just celebrated my 40th birthday when I had my first routine mammogram. [Read more…] about How I took back my health after my cancer diagnosis.
