"My mission is to educate and encourage healthy, mindful living helping others embrace the concept that we are a product of what we eat and how we treat ourselves."


That was a lesson I learned from an early age. I guess you could say that my fascination with health and wellness began on the trips I took with my mother to Rancho La Puerta in Tecate, Mexico when I was just a teenager. She went for her asthma, and I got dragged along. I was convinced that I wouldn’t actually benefit from the experience, but the twists and turns of life have taken me full circle – now nutrition and helping others lead a healthy and happy life have become my career and I couldn’t be more grateful for it.

Ashwagandha is considered to be one of the most crucial apoptogenic herbs in […]

Creamy Broccoli Pesto Soup
