April 22, 2014
Italian Carrot Salad

This month’s recipe redux post is honoring treasured cookware. I could not think of a better item to showcase than my mom’s famous white serving bowl. This simple white bowl is not much to write home about; if you saw it on my table you wouldn’t think anything of it. But this nondescript bowl is […]

Why Do I Eat Clean?

April 16, 2014

Last month I finished copy edits on my first cook book – Skinny Juices, 101 Juice Recipes for Detox and Weight Loss (coming out in June!). This week I’ve been busy prepping for the launch of  my sixth group detox program. So detox is on my mind! But more specifically, toxins. Mostly because I keep seeing quotes and stories […]

black bean pasta with olives and cauliflower 1

I found this black bean spaghetti at Costco. Surprisingly, it’s organic, gluten-free and pretty much clean eats. There are only 2 ingredients: black beans and water. Can’t get much cleaner than that, right? How does it taste? I was thinking that, too. So much so I never thought I would actually make this pasta. I have […]

Apricot and Almond Granola

I’ve never made granola before. Not sure why, I just never thought I would like it. I had no idea I was totally missing out. I made this apricot granola as a request from the hubby, who was mesmerized by Bobby Flay whipping some up on The Food Network. He only recorded the last 5 […]

Today I’ve got a little surprise in store for you. I thought it would be fun to combine this month’s recipe redux with a sneak peak inside my upcoming book, 101 Skinny Juices for Weight Loss and Detox! It works out perfectly because February’s theme is all about that which is served in a mug, glass, or […]

How To Eat Processed Food

February 20, 2014
Grocery cart

I eat processed food.  And so do you.  It’s almost impossible not to. Food is “processed” as a matter of course to get it from the farm (or factory) to your table.  But wait, if you’ve done my detox or worked with me privately you know I’m all about clean eating and avoiding processed food. So […]

21-days clean eating detox

On January 1st, I shared that my Clean Eating Detox is open for enrollment. I’m excited to get started and already love the incredible community that’s forming. I can’t wait to support my detoxers as they experience a transformation in the way they think and feel about food — along with dropping some excess weight, ending bloat and […]
