The Father of Medicine figured out a very very long time ago, that how we eat determines how well we feel and ultimately the health we radiate.

In today’s episode I discuss the power of flaxseeds and how to add them to your life EVERYDAY.

The benefits of flaxseeds; high in fiber, lowers blood sugar, high in Omega 3s fatty acids, promotes good cholesterol, anti aging,  treats many menopause symptoms, anti fungal, anti viral, good for muscle pain and known to reduce the symptoms of arthritis.

So, how the heck to we add it to our lives? You can add it to muffins, pancakes, cereals like oatmeal and cream of wheat and you can add it to your daily green smoothie.

In a small mason jar add to each recipe; 1/2 Cup Oats, 1-3 T. flax seeds, 1T Chia seeds, 1/3 Nut Milk, Sweetener of choice about a tablespoon.

Then you can change it up, by adding blueberries, vanilla, maple syrup, honey, lemon zest, yogurt, almond extract, or any other fruit dried of fresh. Put it in your refrigerator and the next day it’s ready to be topped with a little more nut milk and drizzled with agave nectar.

Next, Flaxseed Cookies-1C. Flaxseed ground, 1C. Almond Flour, pinch salt, 1/4 1/2c maple syrup, 1/4c. water, 1t. vanilla. Roll into cookie and flatten at bit on parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and 18 minutes.  Check every 5 minutes.

Episode 110: Love and Compassion with Nathan Runkle~Mercy For Animals

Ep: 110…. Love, Compassion, Connection, Empathy and Core Values.

Today’s Episode is more than a book interview.  We dive into hope and inspiration about what could be; a world free from unneeded pain and suffering.

Nathan started an organization 18 years ago that devotes its entire existence to advocating on behalf of farm animals, especially factory farm animals. The organization is called Mercy for Animals.

And his book entitled MERCY FOR ANIMALS is available September 12th, 2017 on all platforms. You can also reach out and get involved @  or the good food institute @

In this podcast we cover a lot of ground, talking about animal rights, laws that protect the factory farms such as ag gag laws and libel laws from transparency and  we talk about going vegan and vegetarian or even being meatless on Mondays.

We talk about the circle of compassion and how it is growing but all of us can divert our gaze and ignore that murder is a part of our everyday lives often every time we choose to eat meat, dairy and eggs.

Nathan is very good at asking not for perfection but for progress. You can choose to get involved by donating or by volunteering, or you can take a stand to reduce your consumption of animal products.

Remember, it’s about the “kind” choice, the acts of love. Animals, all animals have the ability to feel pain and in today’s factory farms, the abuse is insane and while, you may not know it,  eating meat is no longer required. You can choose plants, you can choose your core values to be ethical, loving, and filled with compassion.

Please enjoy this interview with Nathan Runkle and get a copy of his new book Mercy for Animals.

Episode 109: What the Plant Milk Is Going On?

Ep: 109 What the Plant Milk Is Going On?

Today, we talk about plant milk; soy, almond, coconut, oat, hemp, and rice. Why plant milk? First, the number one reason is milks made from plants are  a healthier choice to milk made by a Cow’s or any animal for that matter, especially when you make the plant milk at home.

All you need is clean filtered water and whatever you want to make your milk from. It helps to have a high powered blending such as Blendtec or Vitamix, but you can make it with any blender it just won’t be as smooth.

2. The second reason to add plant milks to your life is convenience. You can store boxed plant milks for a year or longer and you can store all the items that you  will need to make plant milks for just as long if not longer. This makes food creation fast so much easier. You can make smoothies, soups, cereals, baked goods, ice cream, desserts and so on. Also, making these items is super easy. There is no real skill required.

Once you make the any of the milks you will be so happy you ventured into this world of plant milks.

I also talk briefly about how cow’s milk is laden with chemicals, hormones, pus and antibiotics. You may want to watch some videos about the dairy industry and factory farming for added insights and information. It is truly a terrible industry and will aid you with the information needed to know what is really contained in dairy milk.

Most plant milks are 4 cups filtered water to 1 cup whatever you are making the milk from. But, remember the less water the richer and thicker the milk. To make it sweet you can add dates and or maple syrup. A pinch of salt and a squeeze of lemon is also a nice little addition create a nice flavor.

I hope you explore the wonderful world of plant milks and venture into making it at home.

Episode 107: The Power of Visualization

Ep: 107 The Power of Visualization

Today we talk about visualization and how you can use it to make decisions no matter what size they are. We also go over how not creating positive mental pictures can often lead to a cruddy life. The pictures in your mind make all the difference.

The takeaway is to create a notebook of all areas that matter the most and next to each area be a goal, an affirmation, what you are grateful for, your list of things you like about yourself, what you truly want to transpire in your life, you draw a mental picture representing each idea concept or thing. This will create a turbo effect that brings about and reinforces the life you are creating.

Episode 106: HealthCare In America

Ep: 106 HealthCare In America

What the heck is going on? Well, we have a complex system trying to become a real healthcare entitlement for all people. But, change is hard, change is difficult.

What Can You Do About Your Health?

  1. Hydrate. 2. Eat salads and veggies and whenever you find that your eating and drinking habits are not good, reset right away. Do better. That’s it that is the very best we can all do, is make a point of resetting as soon as you can. Because poor health is often, not always, but often a choice you have been making for years every time you lift your fork or tip your glass.

Ep: 104  – The Power of Green Smoothies & Green Juice – Today’s podcast is about taking your nutrition to the next level.

You can simply google recipes for juicing and smoothies and find hundreds if not thousands on the internet. Today’s podcast is about adding both smoothies and juices into your everyday life.

Recipe 1. Banana, apple, greens; romaine lettuce or any green works, water, ginger, and turmeric. Go easy with the amounts of ginger at first. Recipe 2.  Kale, water, romaine, cilantro, celery, pineapple, papaya, cantaloupe, ginger, and frozen banana. Recipe 3. Peaches, Spinach, and water. Recipe 4. Banana, romaine, strawberries and water. Recipe 5.Apricots, banana, blueberries, Read Leaf lettuce and water.

In regards to juices, use carrot and apple as your base for many juices. Remember 1/4 of each recipe is Green on any and all green juices. And buy Organic.

I mention the documentary Fat Sick and Nearly Dead for inspiration with juicing. I forgot to mention The Gerson Therapy by Charlotte Gerson a documentary and a book, very very inspiring.  I also like adding lemon, celery, cucumber, jalapeno and greens to my daily juice regimen.
