Personal Notes:
 Greetings – Happy Spring.  Well we made it through another winter, in theory.  If this year is anything like last year – brace yourself for at least another month of coldish weather.  I stay warm with layers, something around my neck, drinking warm beverages and eating spicy food.  Enjoy the season.

Nutrition Tip

Veggie Hunt – try expanding your vegetable consumption horizons – to do this go on a veggie hunt.  The next time you are in the grocery store wonder through the produce section for a vegetable you have a) never had before b) have not had since childhood or c) think you hate.  Then purchase AND consume it.

Featured Article

Raw Foods:  What’s the deal?

Brenda Jaeck


It seems this is the topic of late.  Many people have asked about this alternative type of diet.  Personally, my diet is 50 – 75 Raw, depending on the season.  Why do people eat a raw diet?  What are the advantages?   Here are just some:


  1. Unbelievable flavor – once you clean your system from all the processed food you would not believe how good real, natural, raw food tastes.
  2. Living water – a raw food diet is higher in water and as such keeps your body hydrated and cleansed.
  3. Real vitamin and minerals – raw food is high in nutrients – and they are real and unprocessed; therefore, you area able to absorb more nutrients.
  4. Enzymes – every metabolic function in your body (from digestion to cell repair) requires enzymes. Heating food kills the enzymes in it.
  5. Examples in nature – no other animal, in its natural environment, eats cooked food.
  6. Quality of life –if you re healthier you WILL enjoy a high quality of life – you will be sick less often and have more energy
  7. Mental outlook and spiritual advancement - without toxins, clogging up the thoughts one can think more clearly as such spiritual advancement is possible.
  8. Consume less sugar and less processes carbs.
  9. Cleaning and the release of toxins
  10. Weight loss and clear skin


This data is summarized in two books: Rawvolution by Matt Amsdem and The Complete Book of Raw Food by Lori Baird and Julie Rodwell.  Both of these books have a ton of information on the raw food diet and each contains many recipes.

Get to Balance –How will you bring more balance to your life?  How about a healthier, more balanced life plan?

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.  


There is also an email version of my program now available.
