The Journey starts with application

“Don’t waste a moment on how to create change until you’ve clarified what you want, why you want it and when you want it.”


There are so many elements needed to sustain vibrant health: and that is and should be everyone’s goal. Yet confusion abounds regarding the proper way to eat, and the appropriate portions to consume. Many of us end up taking the easy, convenient road because we are confused or frustrated by so much and often conflicting information.

The beginning of the food journey needs to start with getting “Back to Basics.” With knowledge comes power: power to feel more confident with incorporating healthier lifestyle changes and eating right is a lifestyle. The problem is…knowledge only converts to something that has the power to transform if you “make”  the time to initiate what you have learned.  If you have knowledge yet do nothing with it….!


Your current “eating” patterns were LEARNED… they were not automatic from birth. If you want to sleep better, see the texture of your skin improve, better bowel habits, improved moods, higher energy levels without having to reach for caffeine or energy drinks….. Then the only thing left to accomplish is scheduling a consultation with me….. the fee for an hour of my time is less than most people spend when they “treat” themselves to a dinner out on the town! the QFA Analysis which allows us to see where your body pH, resistivity, and Redox levels are by using your 1st morning Urine & saliva add a more detailed blueprint for a specific nutritional battle plan.


Change can scare people, learning new habits can seem like more work than it’s worth sometimes. Yet, on the flip side, it doesn’t work unless you apply and work at it. Unlike your car when it gets too high in mileage or starts to give you mechanical repairs one right after another draining your finances… We can’t trade it in on the latest and greatest, we only get “one” of us!


I’d be honored to help you on your journey…. go to and sign up for your session with me, Once you do, I’ll give you my schedule and we can start….

Did you make your own butter? wanna use that buttermilk? Here ya go!

For those of you who are realizing after watching my youtube video on how to make your own butter just how easy and self-satisfying it is to make and accomplish.  Now you also have realized you can make your own fresh buttermilk, so here are some great recipes you can try to incorporate that fresh buttermilk.


2 TB virgin olive oil

1/2 small lemon juice and some zest

1/3 cup buttermilk

2 or 3 chives

2TB dried parsley or 1/4 fresh parsley

1 clove minced garlic

pinch of sea salt and dash of white pepper

Toss these ingredients into blender, or food processor and whip up. makes about 1/2 cup of dressing.

Buttermilk bread/muffin recipe:

1 pkt. yeast

1 1/4 cups warm water

1 1/4 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup honey

5 1/2 cups whole wheat bread flour

2 tsp sea salt

2 TB soft butter (use what you just made)

If you don’t have a bread machine but you do have a food processor you can actually knead your dough in your food processor, or if you have a kitchen aid standing mixer with a dough hook you can use that method.  Place wet items in food processor first then add flour, salt and yeast last, close up and follow your appliance instructions for mixing.

the dough is done when it forms a ball in the appliance, take out shape and let rest in a covered glass buttered bowl for about 30 mins. cover with a hand towel.  then take out and either shape into a loaf or break apart and shape into dinner rolls and place in muffin tins.


2 cups whole wheat flour

1/2 cup wheat germ

2 tsp baking soda

1 TB brown sugar

1 tsp salt

2 large eggs

2 1/2 cups buttermilk and 1/2 cup milk or milk substitute like almond milk or rice milk

2 TB grapeseed oil or coconut oil

blend together, and heat that griddle.


this is a wonderful alternative sauce.  Good buttermilk can taste like that of sour cream and in sauces it usually works great.  so whether you are making a normal cream sauce or the cornstarch version.  I personally prefer the flour method because any leftovers you reheat the sauce seems to do better.

1 cup cold buttermilk

1 TB flour

2 tsp of Braggs liquid amino’s

3 TB butter

melt butter, add the flour it will make a paste stir frequently, slowly pour in the buttermilk while stirring and sauce will begin to thicken, then add liquid amino’s, this will be a more tangy version.  or if you’d prefer more of a Stroganoff Sauce.

1 cup buttermilk

1 TB flour

1 small onion chopped

1 clove garlic minced

2 TB butter

1/2 cup mushrooms of your choice

1/4 tsp sea salt

black or white pepper to taste (I prefer white)

Combine your buttermilk and flour stir well and set aside  saute the onion and barlic in butter stir in mushrooms and cook til tender.  remove mushrooms add buttermilk mixture to the pan stirr and cook til thick then return mushrooms.

Tomato-Buttermilk Sauce
This recipe is great over pasta most kids love this one.

1 cup buttermilk

1 TB flour

1/2 onion chopped fine

1 clove garlic minced

2 TB butter

2 TB tomato paste

1/2 tsp basil dried

like above mix buttermilk and flour and set aside, saute onion and garlic add tomato paste and basil then the buttermilk mix.  bring to boil stirring frequently until thick and smooth.  Makes about a cup.  cook and boil your pasta toss together add a side salad and call it a meal….

Last but not least how about some



1/4 cup flour

1 tsp sea salt

1 med. onion chopped

3 TB butter

2 cups buttermilk

white pepper to taste.

peel and slice potatoes, I personally like to leave the skins on so scrub them really well if you do.  combine salt and flour and put in zip lock bag add potato slices seal and toss till potatoes are coated, place them in a 9X13 casserole dish.  Saute onion in butter and add buttermilk to pan just long enough to make it warm but not boiled.  Pour over potatoes, grind pepper or even paprika over them and bake at 350 for about an hour.  serves about 6.

For proper food digestion this would go well with the above pasta dish and side salad NO MEATS with your STARCHES.
Enjoy some of these warmer comfort foods for the fall/winter coming months.

Healthfully yours,

Detoxification & cleansing…..WHY DOES IT HELP!

Each of the detoxification and cleansing programs aim to remove toxins, restore a strong immune system, promote regular elimination, lower body fat, improve circulation and assist with minimizing stress so that your body can effectively resist toxicity. During each program, you will feed your body better than you have ever fed it before!
Together with proper supplements, each program results in a thorough cleansing of your digestive tract and each of the 7 body systems. Your body will now have the opportunity to divert positive energy toward rebuilding a stronger body rather than having no option but to use that same energy to aid digestion. Participation in, and completion of, one of the detoxification programs, nourishes not only your physical health but also enhances your emotional well being.
Prior to starting any of the programs, you will be provided with detailed instruction and information that completely supports your efforts to obtain the most positive effects from your detoxification and cleansing.
What Is Detoxification & Cleansing?
Detoxification is a natural body process of eliminating and neutralizing toxins from the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. It is an extremely effective method that has been utilized for several centuries.
Our bodies constantly dispose of toxic matter that accumulates in our tissues. You may not realize it, but you clean much of your insides on a daily basis. For example, your excretory system is always at work cleaning your body; you brush your teeth, wash your eyes and ears, and tidy your nose.
However, in today’s heavily polluted world, your body’s natural ability to effectively rid itself of unwanted matter is not enough. This is because our bodies are not designed to function optimally in a world with excessive toxic waste that permeates the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. As a result, our internal systems and organs are not only strained but overloaded and incapable of clearing out all of the toxins.
Detoxification, using one of the specific cleansing programs, helps to remove excessive toxic waste from your body.
Advantages of Detoxification and Cleansing
• Helps with weight loss and weight control
• Improves digestion
• Decreases “risk” of disease and chronic health conditions
• Improves clarity of thought
• Minimizes stress reaction
• Improves overall health, energy and vitality
• Deep emotional release leading to clarity and lightness of being
• Facilitates smoother walk on the path to mind, body balance
Who Will Benefit
Detoxification is beneficial for everyone as a “general” disease and illness preventive measure.
Even if you are generally healthy and eating healthy foods, undergoing a detoxification cleanse will make you stronger by restoring your body’s resistance to excessive environmental toxins.
