OK so we all know that it's best to skip the white table salt---but did you know that there is salt out there that not only will satisfy the salt cravings but also give you many of vital minerals and nutrients that our body is craving and often times is depleted in.  The answer is CELTIC SEA SALT.  Why celtic sea salt???  It is recommended by many health professional and culinary chefs. It's no surprise why. Celtic Sea Salt brand ( which is available at more quality  health food store and online)  It is hand harvested and dried n the sun and wind.  It contains no caking agents, bleaching agents or other additives. It contains the perfect balance of minerals and trace elements and it unmatched in flavor.  Celtic Sea Salt is a beneficial addition to most diets. The composition of our blood plasma, lymphatic fluid and extra cellular fluid all mirror the chemical balance of the ocean water from which it is derived.  The human body uses the minerals and trace elements in Celtic Sea Salt to create electrolytes, maintaining these "internal oceans" which are vital to proper functioning of every system of the body.
  Famed Medical doctor Christine Norothrup, MD was  quoted saying 
"many illness are caused or exacerbated by trace mineral deficiencies.  These can be avoided by the liberal use of celtic sea salt in your cooking and the complete avoidance of all other salts."

On a personal note, since adding Celtic Sea Salt into my diet I have noticed a great reduction in cancer and cold sores which I tend to get alot in the winter months.  My body is saying YYYYYYEEEEEESSSSSSS.  Oh and I wanted to warn you that at first you my be  put off by the price but if you look at this salt as  a nutritional supplement rather than just a will not complain and see the great value in it.  

ONCE YOU TRY IT, there's no going back!!  LIVE WELL, LOVE PURELY

Many of us were brought up being taught that FLUORIDE is what keeps us from getting cavities. We are constantly being told by our family dentist to use FLUORIDE enriched mouthwashes. Even I got caught up in the false hype. Well let me shed some info I have found on Fluoride and you can decide for yourself if its worth the chance.
It is a carcinogenic. Over ten thousand cancer deaths per year are linked to fluoridated water.
Can cause tiredness and weakness, wrinkled skin, kidney and bladder disorders, constipation, vomited, itching after bathing, excessive thirst, stomach disorders, sinus disorders, vision problems, eczema, bronchitis and asthma. Excessive fluoride dean also reduce vitamin c levels, weaken the immune system and cause birth defects and genetic damage. THE USE OF FLUORIDE HAS BEEN BANNED IN TEN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES. NEED I SAY ANYTHING MORE???????????????????????????????????????????????????

A short blog to get the info out there. Independent studies now have confirmed that high levels of mercury are found in high fructose corn syrup.  REAL NICE.  And we are supposed to believe those new commercials trying to convince as how safe it is.  God I want to gag every time I see it on TV.  Remember KNOWLEDGE= POWER.  Go online and research this on google or elsewhere, and I post more detailed info later.  I am in awe and wanting to share this info with the world.  Beware and read the labels with a more concerned eye.  PEACE AND LOVE




In India when one starts a cleansing program it usually involve something called Kichari.  In is a simple mixture of mung bean dal and rice with specific seasonings to balance the body and the DOSHAS.  It is very easy for the body to digest and allows your digestion a chance to rest, relax and recharge.  I highly recommend this recipe as it is aimed for all three doshas, VATA, PITTA AND KAPHA doshas and is very healing for the body.....and delicious.  


1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 tablespoons ghee
3 bay leaves
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
1/2 teaspoon tumeric
1/2 sea salt
1 stick kombu (optional)
1 teaspoon fresh ginger root
1/2 cup basmati rice
1/4 cup split mung dal
4-6 cups filtered water

Wash the rice and bean until water is clear.
Warm ghee in medium saucepan. Add the cumin seeds, bay, coriander. Brown slightly, until
aromatic. Stir tumeric, rice, and dal.  Add water, salt and kombu and ginger.  Simmer covered over medium heat until beans and rice are soft.

During a 21 cleanse in INDIA this is what you eat exclusively for the entire cleanse.  Try it for a day, a week, a month.  NAMASTE


The ancients offered ten principles about a healthy diet and how it is to be eaten.  They are:

1) Food needs to be warm (usually cooked).

2)Food needs to be tasty and easy to digest.

3)Food needs to be eaten in the proper amounts.

4)Food needs to be eaten on an empty stomach, after your last meal has been digested and not before.

5)Foods  needs to be eaten in  pleasant surroundings with no talking or T.V.

6)Foods need to work together and not contradict one another in their actions.

7)Eating should never be rushed and should always be sitting down, never standing.

8)It is best to be conscious and aware of the food and chewing while eating.

9)Only eat food which is nourishing to your particular constitution and which suits your mental and emotional temperament.

10) Most importantly always say a meal prayer before eating your food and never drink cold liquids with your meal as it dilutes the digestion process, creating AMA in the system.

These concepts may seem obvious, and yet if you think  back over the last few days of eating, you are likely to find at least a few or many examples of eating different from these.  Of all the elements essential for the maintenance of positive health, food taken in the proper quanity is regarded as most important.  IN AYURVEDA, food is medicine as well as nourishment and what one eats and  how it is eaten is of the upmost importance to health and well being.  I encourage everyone to to try and implement as many of these basis AYURVEDIC principles in every day life.  Until next time. PEACE


Just wanted to give ION in Middletown the proper shout out. Their food and integrity of ingredients is off the charts. As mentioned in my previous blog they use all organic and local farm grown ingredients and is slowing becoming the mecca for RAW FOOD enthusiasts and vegan/gluten-free clients. Their desserts are almost orgasmic and well worth the drive alone. They have weekly events including local artists, intuitive readings and ongoing lectures and cooking classes on RAW cooking and organic vegan gourmet cuisine. The owner and chef MARK SHADLE is an inspiration to me on so many levels. He walks the talk and lives himself on an organic farm in DURHAM CT. He drives a car that runs fully on the veggie grease that he gets from the restaurant. He also uses many ingredients and herbs from is own farm in his menu items and you can definitely feel the love poured in the stir at a time. I love love love this restaurant. And even if you are not vegan the food can stand up to the toughest meat eater. Try the veggie crab cakes, sweet potato fries and the tease cake for dessert and thank me later.
