April 2007

Personal Notes: Spring is here!~  I am SO happy. Spring is the time to renew.  It’s a new season, the new buds and blooms are here.  More veggies are in season, babies are being born in nature and on and on….   I recently just completed a week-long detoxifying cleanse and am ready for all things new.  Many interesting things coming down the pike – so stay tuned!


Conducting a cleanse gave me new found energy and clarity.  If you are interested in experiencing this for yourself - perhaps it’s time for you to do the same.  If so, won’t you join me for my 5-part teleclass on how to conduct a cleanse for yourself.  See details below.


On Another Note: It's that time of year again.  The annual Revlon Run Walk for Women's Cancer is May 5 in NYC.  Won't you either join me in walking or via a donation?  To do so, go to the link


To sponsor me click on the NY event, then donation, then sponsor participant online.  My bib #892.  Or, if it is easier, you can mail me a check made out to Revlon Run Walk.  My address:  P O Box 323 NY, NY 10159


Thank you for any support you can offer.

Nutrition Tip

Mint Mint not only tastes great and is so refreshing but also has many medicinal uses.   It can reduce viruses and bacteria.  It also improves circulation of energy, blood and lymph.   Peppermint relives spasms, increases perspiration and tones the digestive system. Spearmint is helpful for fevers, hiccups, indigestion and flatulence.

Featured Recipe

This is a great spring soup – it is NOT split pea soup – rather, much lighter and energizing.  It tastes like Spring in a bowl!


Minted Spring Pea Soup (Serves 4)


2 leeks, cleaned and cut into thin rings

1 T olive oil

1 pound peas, cooked (to reduce time use frozen)

2 cups water or vegetable broth

2 T fresh mint, chopped finely

Salt and pepper


Sauté leeks in olive oil until tender.  Add peas and water and simmer 30 minutes.  Add mint and pulse briefly all above in food processor.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Serve warm or chilled.

Spring Clean You!

By Brenda Jaeck, Holistic Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach, Lecturer and Workshop Facilitator


You spring clean your house, you spiff up your wardrobe for the new season, perhaps you even take your car in for a tune up.  So much effort is made in this regard at this time of year.  Why not do the same for your body?  We could ALL use a little internal Spring cleaning, regardless of how well or poorly we live or eat.


Benefits of Internal Cleansing include:


New found energy and clarity – if you are using so much energy to store and eliminate the “gunk” that has accumulated within imagine how different you would feel if you cleaned some of it out.


Relief from symptoms – often symptoms we are experiencing: fatigue, irritably, bloating, gas, pain, allergies or sensitivities are a result of toxins lurking in the body.  Eliminating or at least reducing the amount of toxins in our body can allow relief from these symptoms.


Resetting goals around eating – let’s face it, we don’t all eat well everyday.  It can be one little something that leads us to a downfall and then we are somehow stuck in the space of poor eating. Mixing it up, changing the cycle can rid us of these new found habits.


Setting new intentions in our life – again, if you are using so much energy to process and eliminate toxins or are stuck in an unhealthy way of eating – how can you get to a new place?  Life moves forward always – we need to be able to move with it.


Sleep Issues – some sleep issues are caused by poor food choices today or cumulatively.  Cleansing the body can rid our bodies of the internal chaos keeping us up at night.


What the difference between a fast and a cleanse? 


A fast is exactly that, you are not eating. One form of fasting is juice fasting where you are ingesting fruit and/or vegetable juices.  Rather, while on a cleanse you ARE eating food.  You are eating a very clean diet – one that is designed to open up the body and to eliminate things that have built up – toxins, mucus, congestion, excess waste in the colon. Either way, you are making progress in breaking down stored toxins.


Moral of the story – we clean almost everything we own occasionally – why not our bodies too?  Spring is a GREAT time to do so.

Get to Balance – Start the new season off right!

Are your health concerns impeding you from living life fully? Do you want to change your relationship with food from the inside out? Are you seeking deep seeded balance and wellness?


I would eagerly welcome the opportunity to work with you on a personal level.  We can work together privately to create a customized life-long plan for you AND create the steps to incorporate those changes into your existing routines.


Through my counseling services I can help you create and maintain balance in your life by using nutrition as a focus and a tool.  To do this I look at your entire lifestyle to achieve maximum health.  This is accomplished through education and private consultations where an individualized program is developed for you.  These consultations include evaluating your current diet and overall lifestyle and then making easily implemented, gradual changes.  Additionally, you’ll receive outside information in the form of articles, books, tapes and recipes.  Also included are additional monthly forms of education and participation -- activities like cooking coaching, health food store shopping hints, light exercising functions and other activities. My practice is telephone based, allowing for maximum flexibility and ease. To learn more to go


To schedule an initial consultation contact me today at or (917) 213-9305.
