Alright, I suppose I don’t know if it’s really my best but over time as I’ve worked with clients and performed workshops this is the advice I’ve gotten the most feedback on.  Positive feedback, great feedback. These are simple steps that can easily be implemented and have yielded the best results both for myself personally as well as those I’ve worked with.

So, I thought I’d put them together for an easy go to guide.read more

Cold season be gone.

 This is the time of the year, despite our best attempts, colds and coughs are all around us.  Obviously I feel your best defense is a good offense which is why I’m a big proponent of eating clean, high nutrient foods, getting enough sleep, being active and listening to what your body needs.  However stress, travel and a varying routine can wear us down weakening our immune system.

My daughter was under the weather this past week.  A sore throat developed first and progressively got worse throughout the day by the evening she was sporting a wet cough and was very uncomfortable.  The following day was spent on the couch resting with movies + books and lots of tea and mom’s home remedies.  So I thought I’d share some tips to help you through this season healthfully.read more

Simple recipe for staying cool

With a heat index of 94 degrees last week we were all looking for ways to cool off here in NY.  I have fond memories of my mom brewing deliciously fruity teas by the kitchen window lite with the mid-day sun so I decided to brew my cooling, Pitta reducing minted iced tea that way as well.
After steeping for 4 hours, I strained the fresh mint and tea bags, allowed to cool and then enjoyed over a little ice with a mint sprig.

Fresh mint iced tea

1/2 c fresh mint leaves (I used spearmint)

3 tea bags (I chose Moroccan mint green tea)

2T honey

4c water

Steep all ingredients, strain and enjoy. Stay cool.

a quick remedy for overindulging

I’ve been keeping this tea or drink I suppose that I found in my back pocket not really too tempted to try it because I saw it listed as a weight loss tea.  When I looked at it further I noticed it is used to stimulate digestion and aid the body in digesting fats and de-toxing the blood.  When you’ve indulged a little too much with rich fatty foods or upon waking with that heavy feeling in your stomach, give this a try.read more
