Be Flexible and Be Willing to Let Go

Look, see how much fun I had?! Don’t worry, Ian’s not creepy, he’s awesome!

I had a fun and fabulous time recording some videos to help celebrate the publication of Overcoming Overwhelm for my publisher, Sounds True. Instead of flying out to their studio in Colorado (that would have been a lot of fun, but also a lot of missed patient time), we agreed that I’d do the filming locally—with videographer extraordinaire Ian from Vertica Productions, and they’d do the production on their end. Gads I love the power of the internet! 🙂

Deciding not to travel to Colorado is an example of how I choose to live my life based on my OWN values. While I’m thrilled to be a published author and enjoy honing an online presence, I value my patient work too, so my life requires thinking outside-the-box to make it work, and thankfully, this usually works well!

I was able to have my husband there with my to help me stay present and focus on the work at hand, rather than worrying if my glasses looked goofy or whether my hair had all the flyaways!

This video features a reading from my book.

Yours in health,

PS you can see another video on the book page! More to come. ♥

Then I came upon a recipe...

Cook This: Crunchy Kale Chips

I fought this one for long—kale chips. Sounds awful delicious, right? I’d had them before. My husband would buy them at the coop and eat them as if they were going out of style. I thought they were ok but certainly not worth $8 a bag. Last weekend my sister came to visit and saw the piles of the leafy green deliciousness that we’d harvested...

How Do You Trust Your Supplement Brand? Here is what to ask them…

Every time a new patient comes into the clinic I have ‘the supplement talk.’ Here’s the thing; no one is regulating the supplement industry. And it is indeed an industry, a big one at that. Does that mean that you can’t trust anything out there? No. It means that you need to be very careful about which supplements you buy. Just because something is expensive,...

But how do I find good recipes without gluten?

And while we’re at it, let’s add “without dairy” “without too many carbs” “with high omega-3” “without sugar?” And so on and so on. Sitting where I sit, after 20 years of working on recipes that fit my family’s dietary restrictions, it’s easy. But I know that up front, when those first changes are being made, it can be quite daunting to say the least....
