In last weeks post, I discussed the foods and substances that both men and women should avoid before pregnancy in Part 1: Preconception Health 101: What to Avoid Before You Get Pregnant. Part 2 will focus on what to include before you get pregnant. Did you know that nutrition, stress and toxic exposure during preconception […]

Food is medicine. Bad food is bad medicine and makes us unwell in the long run. Good food is good medicine that can prevent, reverse, and even heal disease. When you take away the bad food and put in the good food, magic happens. The problem with conventional medicine thinking is that it treats diseases […]

Are you looking for a simple approach to eating healthy meals every day without sacrificing time? Are you too busy to sift (or scroll) through endless recipes looking for something healthy to eat every night? Do you have little time for full on meal planning or the motivation to want to cook when there’s so […]

Sprouting is one of the simplest, cheapest ways to provide yourself with incredible home-grown nutrition in your own kitchen. Sprouting is like any other kitchen endeavour. It seems pretty daunting until you actually do it, then you’re left wondering what took you so long to try. With simple equipment that you most likely have in […]

It is helpful to think about the immune system, and most systems of the body, as something that we want to be balanced, rather than boosted. We can support a strong immune system with nutrition, herbs, lifestyle, and mindset. Now is a good reminder that it’s hard to “make up” for loss of health. Rather, […]

When I was 6 years of age I went to hospital with a split chin and came out sporting a rather fancy set of stitches, which my father laughingly compared to a darned sock. This is my one complete, preserved memory of him, which is not why I am telling this story. The real point […]

I started drinking plant-based broth a number of years ago as a way to nourish my body, support my digestion and encourage my body to heal. At the time I became fixated on creating a broth that was both healing and delicious. It took gallons of experimentation before I came up with what I now […]
