Green Julius (Healthy Orange Julius)

When I was little I loved Orange Julius. As I became older and found out ingredients included regular sugar, dairy (and eggs?) I quickly fell out of love.

It is super easy, refreshing and reminds you of those classic flavors from your childhood. This recipe is raw, vegan, gluten free, packed with nutrients, fibre and antioxidants.

Hot Apple Ginger Drink

This Hot Apple Ginger Drink is perfect for those cooler days. I absolutely adore this drink for warming me from the inside out and as a substitution for coffee or tea (I haven’t drank coffee for over 3 years – If you want to know more about why and how click here). This drink works on two levels of warming. It is warm (obviously – from the title lol).

Outwitting the Devil – Why You Should Read This Book

This is my official first book club pick for 2016. I feel like I’m starting the DAMY Health Members Book Club off with a bang! Introducing Outwitting the Devil: The Secret to Freedom and Success by Napoleon Hill. Don’t be afraid of the title. By “Devil” we’re not talking about an external evil force. It’s more referring to the ego vs your higher self. I personally adore this conversation as I am continually trying to recognize the difference between my ego (fearful smaller self) and my higher true self. This book is great for those of us who don’t...

Whipped Lime Pie Beauty Smoothie

This year for me is all about “getting back to the basics”. I have found that in this super fast, loud, social media filled world everyone is screaming their opinion. It can be overwhelming and tiring. This year I am committed to slowing down a bit, focusing on my own lane and bringing it back to “what works” in my own life. Not every super trendy idea is worth paying attention to. The fact is being healthy, grounded, at peace is as complicated as we decide to make it. I have done things the hard way and I have...

A variety of topics have been discussed ranging from very simple ideas, ideas that most of us would consider passé and out of the box (most-likely not going to happen) concepts. A few of these lists that Amy and I read over stuck us very funny. Such trends were listed as: – fiber – secretly healthy desserts (… we feel like we were on to these a while ago aka almost a decade ago) – Vitamin C and D As you can...

My Wish For You This Year

Every new years eve my husband and I write out our desires for the new year. I also write out my wishes for my DAMY Health Community Members. My wish for you this year is simple, yet powerful. When I was younger I hated my super white skin. All the women I considered beautiful were tanned golden brown like they lived on a tropical beach. I felt embarrassed of my skin and refused to wear shorts, tank tops, etc unless I was tanned. In later years (when I moved into self tanner) I would refuse to go to events...
