A Blast from the Past!

The questions I get asked the most are usually about recipes. How do I create recipes so easily? Well, it is very easy – I just combine my love for food with a bit of creativity! Sometimes I look to the past for a new recipe. A picture, an aroma, a flavor, or an event with family and friends could easily inspire a new recipe. I recently thumbed through some old Christmas magazines and when I saw pictures of eggnog, [...]

The Road to Healthier Living

The journey toward a healthier lifestyle is a road that I didn’t see myself taking a few years ago. In fact, I thought I would be stuck yo-yo dieting; I was desperate for a better way to lose weight. I used to be quite active as a child. I ran, was in gymnastics and dance, but as I grew older, those activities slowly stopped. I starting feeling too uncomfortable to participate. I found myself buying bigger sizes and feeling more [...]

Very-Cherry-Smoothie-005a

I wasn’t a morning person for many years; getting up at the crack of dawn has always been a chore. I wouldn’t get cranky like most, though, but quiet and reflective. Not until about 10 a.m. did I start taking part in conversations around me. I didn’t understand why the morning news crew was so bubbly and energetic at five thirty in the morning, while I dragged myself out of the bed. These days, I’m up and at ‘em, raring [...]

Superfood Energy Blast

It’s the middle of the workday and I’m dragging. What is it about the midpoint of the afternoon and that makes me feel like I’ve just run out of gas? Honestly, I think I’m about to lapse into a coma from staring at my computer screen. I still have a 3:00 work meeting, I have to shuttle kids to events and then go home and whip up dinner. Sadly, that doesn’t include dishes, homework and lunches for the next day. [...]

As a cancer patient and now survivor, I learned the importance of keeping hydrated and flushing my kidneys of toxins, both during and after my treatment. In addition to eating well and drinking a lot of water, about once a month for a few days, I make myself what I call my kidney cleansing NutriBlast to just take that extra step in [...]

Healthy Green Smoothie

When people see me drinking my NutriBlast, no doubt, I get a few questions. Luckily, I don’t mind at all; I consider it an honor to share something I’m so excited about. Usually, the questions just make me laugh, but most of the time, I try to be as helpful as I can be. I was recently asked if I drink Blasts all day long. I responded that I usually eat a light lunch and dinner, but I sometimes have [...]
