Healthy Brain, Healthy Body.

With The Healthy Brain and Body Show coming up this weekend, almost all of my attention has been focused there. The idea for the show came to me a few years ago, when I realized the need for a show that highlights the interconnectedness between our mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health. We believe we have…

Our HUNGRY Brains.

If you’ve been following me for a time, you are likely familiar with my story; how I went from being a nightly, blackout drinker to being someone who values her health and now spends her life spreading the word to others. In my work, I meet a lot of people who have struggled with their…

Power UP Your Morning!

For my entire twenties, mornings went something like this: Open my eyes to the blaring alarm clock. Groan, slam the snooze button until it blared again. Slam…express some colourful words, try to open my eyes while trying to unstick my tongue from the roof of my mouth. Drag myself to the kitchen. Turn on the…

Letting Go…

I need to let go. Maybe you do, too. Maybe we can do this together, in order to be our own accountability partners. I’ll go first. In my life, I have held on for too long. In all sorts of areas. I’ve held on to beliefs that didn’t serve me (“I’m not good enough”, “I’m…

My HEALTH Secret.

As you probably know by now, I got sober when I was 29. A lot has happened in the time between then and now. I hid my addiction by telling people I was “into health” and yet the beauty of that decision meant that I actually became a much healthier version of myself. I’ve talked…

Get Into SPRING By Eating THIS!

With this past Sunday marking the beginning of Daylight Savings, I was reminded of how quickly spring is approaching. It’s practically here! We’ve “all” been there. Where we’ve been happily covered up and cozy in our sweaters and jeans during the fall and winter months only to find ourselves feeling completely naked as soon as…

Sobriety Starts HERE.

As you know, 16 years ago, my life was shattered into a million little pieces, and I was left to rebuild every single part of it. It was a grueling process that left me exhausted at times, elated at others, alive and present for it all. As a woman in long-term recovery, I wear the title…

The Hero We Need.

Last week on Facebook, I shared this video of Fred Rogers (better known as Mister Rogers) back in 1969, appealing to the senate to increase funding for public television programs.The video brought me to tears. Like, sobbing, snivelling, “ugly cry” tears. I could sense that my reaction was…layered. I could feel that it hit a…

Connecting Through Food.

Monday, February 19th was family day in many parts of Canada, which got me thinking about families eating together. In our crazy, fast-paced world, we can find ourselves rushing from one thing to the next and we might find it challenging to gather the family and sit around a table to enjoy a meal along…

Ellen, That’s Just Not Funny.

Let me start by saying that I am a HUGE fan of Ellen Degeneres. In fact, I taped her “coming out” episode back in 1997 and watched it until I could essentially recite every line (fortunately, for me, my roommate was also a fan) and I fist bumped the TV every single time it got…
