OH, YEAAHH! *Healthy* Kool Aid!

Summer means increasing your water intake. I often liven up boring water; avoiding sugar filled sports drinks and artificial water flavor enhancers, with an herbal infused sun tea.

Today, I stopped by my local food co-op and picked up a loose leaf, fruit blend tea in bulk to try!

This one contains Red Raspberry Leaf, Hibiscus, Orange & Lemon Peel, Rose Hips, and Lemongrass.

I swear it takes me back to my youth – chugging a glass of Kool-Aid after running thru the sprinkler all day..

Happy International Day of Yoga

How did you celebrate International Day of Yoga?

My community offered free yoga classes all day at the pedestrian bridge overlooking the Wabash River today.

I was so happy to greet the morning, sharing Sun Salutations with others.

My Mom Always Told Me to “Eat Your Vegetables.” sooo….

I wrapped them in Steak!

I’m always intimidated by those popular cooking videos on social media, but this weekend, I pulled one off!


In a Teriyaki marinated Flank steak, I wrapped sliced Red pepper, Zucchini, Red onion, Carrot, and Asparagus secured with toothpicks and grilled 

about 5-7 minutes each side, brushing on the leftover marinade for a glazed finish.

You can find the full recipe HERE.

bal·ance 

bal·ance 

a condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions.

I teach health and wellbeing using the concept of ‘Primary Food’ – *the food that feeds our soul as being our true path to health and wellbeing – how the Quality of our relationships, Career satisfaction, Daily movement & fitness, and Sense of spirituality; feeling connected to nature, community, etc.. truly effects our overall wellness.

That’s why I created my 1,2,3, Vitality – Three months to health, wellness, and vitality program.
In 6 sessions we will navigate the contradictory world of health and nutrition, giving you a clear plan for simple and do-able practices to support your wellbeing and healthy lifestyle. 

You can read the program details HERE

And, in the meantime, get daily inspiration on my Instagram page.

Most popular yoga pose also one of the healthiest


Downward Facing Dog  is one of the most commonly practiced and probably most recognizable yoga postures around. I bet that when most people think of ‘yoga,’ this pose  comes to mind 2nd to Tree Pose.

This pose has so many health benefits when done properly and consistently


the most noticeable being: Stronger hands, wrists, low-back, hamstrings, calves and Achilles tendon. Decrease in back pain by strengthening the entire back and shoulder area.
