What do you know?

I have a passion for food preparation, nutrition, and learning new things. This has lead me to learn and study independently the research done by various doctors and nutritionists. After lots of reading (and practicing on both myself and my family!) I've found out what works and what's pseudo-science. I also reversed my pre-diabetes and cured my recurring migraine headaches. As an added bonus, I lost 40 lbs and (physically) feel like a teenager again!

I've learned the following:

  • Not all bodies are created equally, and therefore not all diets are one size fits all. Adjustments need to be made based on Blood Type, lifestyle, and medical history.
  • The body has the amazing ability to heal itself of just about everything... as long as you take care of it properly.
  • Switching to a diet that supports your body's natural rhythms is hard work!
  • If it comes in a box and has a long shelf life, it probably isn't good for you.
  • Nature has created a host of food options perfectly designed to keep us healthy, strong, and dis-ease free. And most are best eaten raw.
  • Drink lots of (clean) water!

If you had to eat the same thing every day, what would it be?

I LOVE eating, and I get bored very easily, I don't think I could eat the same thing everyday... and I don't. But if I needed to simplify and conditions required me to live 100% percent off the land. Keep in mind, the diet is ideal for ME as petite blood type B person. Here is what it would be:

Because of seasonal weather changes, I'll need 2 meal plans:

Winter and Spring
  • Oatmeal w/ Dried Fruit
  • Nutter Butter and Fruit Preserve Sandwich w/ Roasted Root Vegetables
  • Arroz con Habichuelas (brown rice, kidney beans, and veggies, cooked puerto rican style)
  • Snacks: Dried fruit and nuts
Summer and Fall
  • Fruit Salad w/ lemon-honey dressing
  • Loaded Mixed Green Salad and Avocado Sandwich
  • Zucchini Pasta Salad (spiralized zucchini, lots of veggies, and a nice vinaigrette)
  • Whole fruits and veggies

What is your favorite hygiene regime?
  • Rose or Lavender Dr Bronners for cleansing body and hair
  • While still wet, smother body and hair with apricot oil, drip dry.
  • No deodorant: when your diet is clean and your body toxin-free, you don't really stink.
  • Brushing teeth with my homemade toothpaste (coconut oil, baking soda, essential oils)
  • Burns and bruises: Healing Ointment (shea, cacao butter, coconut oil, essential oils)
  • Indigestion: Digestive Ease Tea (ginger, cardamom, black pepper, flax, garlic, fennugreek, etc.)
