How ANGER Gave Me Cancer

Cancer was my wake up call. It doesn’t have to be yours.

I couldn’t see it at the time, but now I can see that the emotions I held onto were a huge contributor to my Hodgkins Lymphoma diagnosis. I was so angry. Holding onto anger toward my parents. Angry that I choose a career I had come to resent. Angry with The Universe for the cards I had been dealt.

Anger is like cancer. It grows and grows, taxing the naturally perfect working order of my body and mind.

I hadn’t a clue how toxic the vibration of anger is. The […]

Zucchini “Pasta” with Basil & Avocado Dressing

I’ve been screaming LOUD about the importance or eating organic…today’s recipe is a chance to put organic eating to practice. This week’s recipe is filled with seasonal, fresh, raw, and organic ingredients, and I added hemp hearts for a high dose of vegetable protein!

I made this Raw Zucchini Pasta yesterday and it turned out super delicious. I felt supercharged afterwards from all the nutrients and enzymes. To me, there’s nothing like the charge I feel after eating a dish like this – FAR better than the energy buzz from coffee and without the crash.

Here’s this week’s perfectly cleansing recipe:

It’s too Expensive NOT to Eat Organic

Why buy an organic apple for $1.50 when you can get a conventional apple for $0.50?

What if your life depended on spending the extra dollar?

You may not see the benefits today, but it all adds up. A lifetime of pesticide ridden, genetically modified foods will leave you with a stiff hospital bill one day…it may cost you your joy, mobility, and freedom.

Here’s a great thing to think about: How much do you spend on rent? Or on your mortgage?

We seem to have no problem spending large amounts of money on our housing. How is it then, that when it […]

Poached Egg over Greens and Shiitake Mushrooms

We all know how to make the simple egg dishes, so today I’m sharing a recipe that will be sure to impress your overnight guests. Not only is this dish delicious (I ate it this morning!) but the ingredients are also calculated. The brilliance of the combination of eggs, mushrooms and collard greens is that the later two ingredients reduce the cholesterol impact of the egg!

If you’re still wondering if you should be eating eggs, be sure to read all about why I say a big YES to eggs on the blog post right before this one. You’ll find […]

Why Eggs Are a Yes for Me

Are you an egg eater? I am and the most commonly asked question I get is, “Elissa, do you think eggs are okay to eat?” So today, I’ll share not only why my answer is a big YES, but also a bit about the incredible benefits of eggs.

Before I jump in, it is vital to clarify that you MUST consider your source when buying eggs. If you are grabbing for conventionally raised eggs, please move over to the organic eggs at the very least. I prefer you find eggs from pastured chickens as opposed to just “free range” or “cage […]
