Benefits of Cashews:

Cashew nuts lower your blood pressure with the help of magnesium present in them.

2. High in Vitamins: 

Cashew nuts are rich in vitamins like riboflavin, pantothenic acid, thiamin, niacin, vitamins E, K, and B6, along with minerals like copper, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, iron, and selenium, all of which are important for maintaining good bodily function.

3. Mental Health

Cashews are rich in important amino acids, and omega 3 fats. All of these nutrients directly ward off mild depression and anxiety naturally. Cashews contain the amino acid trytophan and this amino acid is critical for improving the uptake of serotonin in the brain and acts as a direct precursor to the anti-depressant hormone itself. So a handful of cashews a day can help keep the depression blues away!

4. Vision Health:

Cashew nuts have a great impact on your eyes. They contain lutein and zeaxanthin which acts as an antioxidant and protects your eyes from UV rays. 

5. Dental Health:

Cashew nuts contain acids that can kill bacteria and protect your teeth from tooth decay.



Cashew nuts are extremely beneficial for our health and can be a great way to replace dairy from your diet. Cashews can be used to replace cream cheese in cheesecakes, milk in cream dishes because they can be whipped into a cream and also used in so many other creative ways! Nutritious, delicious and sure to put your frown upside, Cashew nuts are a great addition to your healthy nutrition.

Ah Finally, Extra Slutty Olive oil!

Unpopular facts…. Slutty or Virgin… all oil is bad for you! Now I know the marketing has you believing that only certain oils like canola, vegetable or hydrogenated oils are bad for you but all oil including olive and avocado is because oil is a carcinogen and even more toxic once heated above 170 degrees. 
Just think about your body as a cup of water, which it realistically actually is; what happens when you try to mix oil and water?  What happens to the cup when you pour out the oil and water? Which one lines the cup forever? 
That’s what happens when you eat oil. If you’re suffering from inflammation, arthritis or gastrointestinal issues, besides dairy, oil is one of the first things you should eliminate from your nutrition.  Once you look at oil as a pleasure or indulgent ingredient, your health with vastly improve!

Generational Cycles of Well-being



One of the biggest misconceptions is that the health of a child starts when they are born. The health of a child begins with what their mother eats when they are pregnant. A child’s development in the womb is based on the nutrition the mother eats, their lifestyle and mental well-being during pregnancy.  A child’s developmental issues, allergies, and health are all pre determined by these factors in conjunction with genetics. The cycle of well being starts at conception and continues through childhood into adolescence and then adulthood. You can directly correlate the health of a child and their  development with studies conducted on the affects of eating particular foods and lifestyle.  Then take into account genetic triggers and you can clearly see the generational cycles of well-being. 
While there may be exceptions to the rules with why some children can have zero injuries with vaccines while other do and while one child may been born completely healthy and a sibling  has developmental issues, it all comes down to chemical reactions during development and since no two dna are the same either are the chemical reactions to nutrition, lifestyle and genetic triggers. 
You can not control wether the dna will have a positive or negative reaction to a hormone in animals products or a preservative in processed foods but you can control not exposing that dna to something that holds a risk. 
Creating a lifestyle and nutrition that does not include consumption associated with developmental  risks and disease like animal products, processed foods, synthetic vitamins, food dyes and GMO’s removes the likelihood of continuing the vicious cycle of generational diseases and obesity. 
Look at your families genetics and look up the foods that cause the diseases your family has a history of developing and avoid them, then look up the foods that prevent those diseases and eat them. Every person has a chance to create health and well being and breaking this cycle by controlling their nutrition and living a healthy lifestyle that including being active physically and working on mental well-being with consistency and the desire to make life better for the next generation.

Taste the Rainbow? No Thanks!

Taste the rainbow? No thanks!  I feel very fortunate that I was able to give Vivienne the first 2.5 years of her life without her ever tasting artificial colors but as life has it we can not control everything our children are introduced to & through school & marketing she got her first taste of artificial food coloring. Let me tell you that not only was the hyperactivity present within a second of the dyes touching her tongue so were many other symptoms. 


Now mind you my daughter has a nutritional foundation that consists of whole unprocessed plant based foods. Her body is very sensitive to the smells, textures and affects of anything unnatural. The majority of the time when she wants to try a food that’s processed it won’t even get past her smelling it because her body doesn’t recognize things with dyes or additives as food. If she does taste it, she usually doesn’t like it & spits it out.  However, she does like gum balls and jawbreakers BUT she has realized she instantly becomes hyperactive, unable to focus and will ultimately get a tummy ache. 


It’s fascinating that the symptoms produced by these dyes are immediate and undeniable.  I can understand how parents who have fed their children these dyes and other additives associated with these symptoms since they starting eating could miss that these foods are causing their children’s behavioral problems, giving their kids gut and headache symptoms.  If you couple the symptoms from food dyes, additives & add the affects of dairy to it, it would be impossible for a parent to even consider that the health symptoms, chronic colds/flu and behavioral problems aren’t genetic or natural and they’re actually being caused by what they’re feeding their child. 


It’s only really apparent to me because I’m a nutritionist and I’ve studied these dyes and additives but because of the nutritional foundation I’ve created for my daughter, I can see the affects in real-time and can say with certainty that children’s development and wellbeing are being thwarted by the dyes and they are being diagnosed with illnesses and medicated for something that a change in nutrition will solve.

The Business of Medicine

Medicine is a business but doctors don’t have business minds. They’re actually mostly people who are good at memorization and regurgitation of the information. Through out my childhood my family was immersed in the business of medicine.  One person had the degree and the other had the business mind. Our home was littered with pharmaceutical swag, our family vacations were to medical conventions, free dinners at the best restaurants and the pharmaceutical reps were like family. The reps were everything because those who treated you the best were the ones who’s medication you prescribed the most. Watching doctors learn how to best memorize and regurgitate the talking points the pharmaceutical company wanted you to represent all while completely ignoring anything that could challenge the safety of medication. 


The business of medicine is also so far and so widespread it’s unbelievable and most of it has nothing to do with the purpose of medicine in the first place, the health of people. Everyone, doctors, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies have their hand in the pot and everything revolves around profit and nothing around cures or the health of the people. 


Unfortunately it’s really a shining example of supply and demands to a doomed society. Medicine not for profit means cures but with a long line of self serving clientele that doesn’t want to do the work to be healthy or have any accountability for their lifestyle choices the business of medicine is alive and well. 


Everything in medicine is bought and paid for and nothing comes for free!
