Update on my furry family + why animal adoption matters

April 8, 2014|94Comments

Hi Sweet Friends, I’ve been blessed with many teachers throughout my life and they’ve come in all shapes and sizes. My grandmother. Dear friends. My husband. Books. Cancer. Healers. Doctors. The list goes on. Some teachers have been kind, some tough, and others have been a little off their rockers (in the best possible way). But what I’ve noticed over the years is that my most powerful teachers walk on all fours. A dairy cow… Read More >

Quick & Easy Travel Tips

October 13, 2013|157Comments

Hi Sweet Friends, I’m often asked how I stay well while traveling, and it’s really quite easy — a little forward thinking and some simple lightweight items that fit in my bag. Jet-setting (or schlepping about) makes us more susceptible to stress, junk food, late nights and germs, which is why it’s super important to take your self-care efforts up a notch and protect your immune system with my travel tips. Remember when we talked… Read More >


My Crazy Sexy Self Care Planner

September 30, 2013|85Comments

Hi Sweet Friends, I love you. I do. And one of my absolute favorite things is tending to the people I care about most. Making a scrumptious plant-happy dinner for close friends, Skyping with my sister, going for a long hike with my mischief-making pup and sending support to my colleagues, are just a few of my precious rituals. But sometimes, when I don’t give myself the same TLC, doing for others can be too… Read More >

The Crazy Sexy Guide to Organic Foods

September 16, 2013|52Comments

Hi Sweet Friends, It’s time that we had a serious talk. The source of my distress?

The shocking truth about toxic chemicals & body burden

August 22, 2013|91Comments

I fell in love with the Environmental Working Group (EWG) when I realized who they’re fighting for you and me. This organization is doing all the work for us when it comes to understanding how to protect ourselves from the toxins in our world today. And I’m not just talking about our soil, streams and air. These pollutants have made their way into our food, water and personal products. EWG’s tireless research, reporting and consumer guides… Read More >


Safe Sunscreen & Sun Protection: Your Questions Answered

June 10, 2013|57Comments

Hi Sweet Friends, I love summer. Bare feet. Swimming holes. Veggie gardening. And the soul-warming sun. In my earlier days, I had a dangerous love affair with those radiant rays. Sunscreen? Yeah, right. Nothing was going to stand between me, my baby oil, a Body Glove surfer bikini and a golden tan (or rather, a lobster-red sunburn!). Today, I’m much wiser, but not just about the importance of wearing sunscreen. I’m also aware that we… Read More >


10 Simple Ways to Eat Clean & Save Green

May 27, 2013|115Comments

Hi Sweet Friends, Ever since I started sharing my journey from Hot Pockets to whole foods, I’ve often heard that it’s difficult to afford a healthier lifestyle. I won’t argue with you there. Real food is pricier than processed food made in a lab or a factory. And you will certainly see a jump in the grand total on your grocery receipts. But over time you’ll get the hang of it, and I promise it… Read More >

May 6, 2013|107Comments

Hi Sweet Friends, My pantry is the trusty scout leader of my kitchen — always prepared! Over time, I’ve stocked my pantry with items that are the foundation for my meals and can be used in a variety of recipes or all on their own.

My Holiday Guide to Living & Giving

November 26, 2012|36Comments

Festive Friends, While the holidays are a fabulous time to be grateful and merry, they also stir up a lot of emotions, memories and even fears. What a shock. From about mid-November to early January we often engage in a flurry of parties, extra demands and financial stretching. If you’re like me, it’s easy to get caught up in the moment. You might find yourself sleeping less, drinking more, abandoning your self-care practices and beating… Read More >

Come grocery shopping with me to kick off Prevention Month!

November 5, 2012|161Comments

Powerful friends, Have you ever heard the phrase “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? As an outspoken cancer patient I know in my bones that the only lasting cure for that which ails us is prevention. And when I talk prevention, I’m not just referring to cancer, I’m referring to any disease or state (self-doubt, listlessness, fear) that harms you. If you’ve been a part of the Crazy Sexy revolution for… Read More >
