Burn Fat with My Magic Mineral Broth

Magic Mineral Broth

A vegetable broth made from organically grown vegetables can be an excellent source of essential electrolytes. Ionic minerals are the key to maintaining good health. My broth is incredibly nutritious and a health-boosting food that is very easy to make. There is no – absolutely no – need to use the bones of our animal kingdom for the so-called miracle cure-all that humans hanker after. The three “magic” ingredients in my mineral broth come from plants: Kombu seaweed, dried shiitake mushrooms, and dried daikon.


Nutrition For a Healthy Gut- Improve Your Gut Health Naturally

A healthy digestive system is at the root of all health. That’s logical because your digestive tract is the basic source of the nourishment every cell in your body needs. Your gut is a very delicate ecosystem with more flora (healthy bacteria) in it than all the other cells in the body put together.  When this ecosystem is healthy, your digestive tract has the proper balance of stomach acids and bacteria. This allows your body to breakdown food for nourishment and cell repair.


Food and the Five Tastes

I am a long time proponent of a whole food, plant-based diet and a health counselor within the principles of macrobiotics. I adore the whole concept of ‘chi’ (energy) as expressed within Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The five transformations of energy have always made such sense to me, and I love the sense and sensibility it brings to understanding health. A key concept in that understanding is the five tastes.


Summer Vegan Healthy Recipes

Soon we will be enjoying the longer days and warmer weather of the spring and summer. It’s such a joy to be out on our bikes and taking some fabulous hikes in nature. These warm days also mean that it’s time to break out our summer recipes.

The foods that are most needed when the weather is warm are salads, fruits, green vegetables, and those that involve lighter cooking. A quick vegetable stir fry is one of our favourites, with a huge fresh salad and one of my delicious dressings.


The Truth About Whole Grains: Part One

Our Human Ecology Diet has cereal grain as its foundation. Taken as a group, the grains can feed more people per acre with semi-perishable food than any other food. The nourishing qualities of eating grain plus the ability to store grain for long periods of time with little spoilage have made it the most important single crop in human history. It has assured societies the capacity to survive through periods of drought or the presence of harmful pests.


Eating as if All Life Matters

I know, I know. He’s my husband, but… Bill’s new book is incredible. He has really put the “macro” into a fresh approach to nutrition. Eating As If All Life Matters is the result of his fifty-odd years of study, experience, and insight. He has managed to combine all the issues that affect what we eat. He talks about the influence of medicine, politics, and nutritional mythologies, as well as how our diet affects the environment, social justice, and the mind and body connection. Most importantly, for me, is how he connects the dots in a way that is ethically consistent and points to a better future for all life on the planet.


Health’s Deeper Meaning

Mother Earth is a common representation of our planet that focuses on the life-giving and nurturing aspects of nature, the source of every life and health. This analogy offers insights into health’s deeper meaning.

As women, we are the nurturers of human life. Many of us wheel the shopping cart around the supermarket, cook and feed the family, take care of the home, and at the same time, run a business. We are multi-taskers and the epitome of devotion when it comes to caring for our family’s health and wellbeing.
