This time of year is tough on the immune system.  The late nights, sweet treats, and cold temperatures can wreck havoc on our bodies.  It is such an important time to practice a prevention routine.  One of my favorite prevention foods is raw garlic.  It's a total immune-boosting powerhouse!  But unfortunately, not many people can stomach eating … [Read more...]

My Year at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition

My IIN Experience

It's hard to believe it, but I'm about to graduate from nutrition school!  If you had asked me five years ago what I'd be doing today I never would have imaged it was possible to build a business and life that I love in the world of nutrition.  Food and health were things I was personally passionate about, but who can really turn those into a … [Read more...]

Homemade Almond Milk

Homemade Almond Milk

I'm all for making things yourself (especially real food!), but for some reason I resisted the homemade almond milk craze for a while.  I didn't resist it because I had anything against it, it just took me longer to get all the relevant equipment and get down to business.  But I finally got it together and was blown away by how simple and delicious … [Read more...]

Red Clover Tincture

Red Clover Tincture

One of my favorite summer activities is harvesting!  I have a natural instinct to always look around me and gather things.  I've always been this way - tucking herbs in my pockets, picking flowers, or finding wild berries to snack on.  And let's not forget gathering fresh vegetables and fruit from the garden - that's the absolute best! Since I … [Read more...]
