My 5 Favorite Must-Have Recipes

Reading Time: 3 minutes I know how easy it is to fall off the wagon and I know how crappy it feels when I do. To avoid that, these are “required” foods in our house. These recipes help us stay on track by giving us quick dinner options during those moments of “screw it!” weakness.

The True Cost of Illness

Reading Time: 10 minutes I’ve read countless stories of near-death recoveries, improved health at 70-years of age or more, and none of these are wealthy people with access to unlimited medical advances. We scoff at the simplicity of their recovery: eat more plants, sleep 7 or more hours, meditate, exercise 15 minutes daily, chase your crazy passions, and surround yourself with people who you love, admire, and who inspire you.

When I have heart-to-heart conversations with people about their level of health, the conversation turns to hopelessness, apathy, and a lack of motivation. Why? Because “healthy food doesn’t agree with me,” “I like my junk food too much,” “What does it matter? I’m 55, 70 years old (insert any age), and can’t change… what’s the point of trying?” “I want to enjoy my food,” or “I don’t want to give up sweets. It’s not like I’m looking for a new spouse, anyway.”

I ask again… “why ‘suffer’ to be healthy?” Because these people are on medication, routinely visit the doctor, are on disability, and can’t walk far, nor lift over 15 pounds. I hate watching helplessly, knowing how their family is suffering as a result of their false beliefs.

Permaculture and the Story of Stuff

Reading Time: 3 minutes I’m in the throes of learning about Urban Gardening and closed-loop systems. My quest for next year’s edible bounty brought me to a short video you need to see, called “The Story of Stuff.”

It reminds me of my journey in life and the Mission Statement posted at the bottom of every email I send: HopeGraceAncient Wisdom.  There are very deep, personal reasons I create products and teach the topics I do:

  • I recycle as often as possible because I hope the planet can heal and am saddened by the amount of waste we create.
  • I keep my products affordable for the public without devaluing what I create, because I was Graced with an ability to help heal.
  • I believe that following the older laws of nature is a better path than the current system of healing.

Outrage

Reading Time: 4 minutes Never doubt the impact you have on future generations; your actions today determine what’s left for others. Every action has a reaction.

Please consider the importance of all creatures on this planet. Everything is significant, even if you’re unable to find it. Just because you don’t understand something doesn’t mean it’s irrelevant or insignificant.

Global warming is real… instead of complaining about erratic weather patterns and unseasonable warmth, ACT. You don’t have to be vegan or vegetarian to make a difference; start with just one day of meatless meals.

YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Remember, Compassion is contagious…

To Detox or Not?

Reading Time: 6 minutes Most cleanses have you ingesting food, which doesn’t allow your body to burn fat. Fasting does burn fat and is a hell of a lot healthier than the Keto DIEt. After decades of hosting various cleanses, here are my observations on cleansing versus fasting. Fasting is what doctors prescribe prior to major procedures to avoid complications… they don’t ask you to cleanse. There’s a big difference between the outcome of the two.

Do You Judge People by a Label?

Reading Time: 7 minutes When we embark on a new lifestyle, we want to share our successes and path with others. We want people to join us in our new lifestyle. We want to help our tribe find success as we did. We want to convert them from their old life to a better one.

Even if the intent is well meaning, it’s an immediate turn-off, even for those who already share your ideals. This is what they hear: “I’m better than those not following this path.” We see this mentality in “health” DIEts: gluten, soy, carbs, coffee, and an endless list of foods are all evil. It’s what I detest about MLM’s—the image you represent the only reputable company; only you speak the truth.

This mentality leaves you no room for error, growth, or learning. That’s a dangerous place to live, my friend.
