Joshua Tree Friday


Spent a magical day in Joshua Tree today… My hubby captured this moment in the sun.
Have a great weekend and happy full moon night.

Smoothie of the Week: Hypnoparadise


Time for another smoothie. This week I added some extra super power to help us all get through the Holidays! Spirulina is a good source of GLA – the fat our brain most desires, as well as protein and cancer fighting properties. Maybe best of all – it’s a real energy booster – something I think we can all need this time of year.

Oh yeah – and the Prince themed song titles continue.


1/2 banana
1/2 blueberry
1 tbsp coconut manna
1/2 cup almond […]



The Norwegian fashion and wellness magazine Stella came to visit me in New York. They  followed me around for a day and here’s what they captured.

Snowballs – A Sweet and Healthy Holiday Treat


I love giving home-made, edible treats as Holiday gifts to friends. There is something so nice about spending the time to make something with a little dose of love added! I made this over the weekend for a lovely couple I’ve been coaching this fall. They are expecting a little baby girl and spending the holidays nesting at home in Brooklyn… I thought some sweet and delicious snowballs would be the perfect gift.

Smoothie of the Week: (The Green) Kiss


This week’s smoothie has got some green goodness! The avocado adds healthy fat and makes it super creamy and the coconut water add delicious hydrating sweetness. Pear is an under-utilized fruit in the smoothie world, but for no good reason! And I’m sticking with the Prince themed names….

(The Green) Kiss

1 cup Coconut water
1/2 Pear
1/2 avocado
1 packed cup of spinach
1 tbsp flax seeds
pure water – add enough to make it creamy but drinkable. Or keep it lusciously thick and eat it […]

Remember when I wrote about the GOMBBS, the five foods that fight cancer; greens, onions, mushrooms, beans, berries and seeds? While I save my berries and seeds for my smoothies, I managed to create a delicious recipe with the rest of them!

This is a perfect dish when you’re craving some comfort-food but would rather not deal with the inevitable guilt…

Here’s the recipe for you.

Smoothie of the Week: Purple Berry

Smoothies are one of my go to’s for breakfasts – especially when I’m in a hurry. I can quickly trow some nutritious foods in my blender, switch in on, take two deep breaths, switch off – and breakfast is served. If you don’t have time to sip it slow at home, pour it into a jar, and take it to go. Just don’t skip breakfast!

I thought therefor it would be a good idea to share some of my favorite, go […]
