Cancer Journey

I am thankful for a cancer diagnosis.

he-who-has-health

I am thankful for a cancer diagnosis. Good morning! Hope your Thanksgiving was a great time to connect with family and friends and recount why you are thankful. I am thankful that on March 9th, 2010 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lymphoma. Does it sound strange that I am so thankful for receiving a stage 4 cancer diagnosis? It may, but it’s true. Right from the beginning God worked in my heart to see cancer as a blessing and not a curse. The months following that diagnosis were filled with fears, anxieties but HOPE always won out. His promised always proved true. Here are some of the biggest lessons I learned. 1. Perspective. With only God’s help I was able to see a cancer diagnosis as a way to grow in my faith, allow God to love on me and choose to not complain or say, “why me?” Instead…

What’s In Your Shake?

pick-your-protein

What’s In Your Shake? Lots of people are using shakes for lots of things lately…weight loss, weight gain, building muscle, a quick-convenient meal, a healthy alternative to junky snacks, and on and on. But is the shake you’re using actually good for what you’re using it for? Will the shake you’ve chosen really help you accomplish your goals? First of all, is your shake full of artificial this and that? Artificial colors, sweeteners, flavors, etc. actually prevent you from losing weight and they make your body think it needs to store food for later….but your body stores it as FAT! Isn’t that what you’re trying to get rid of? Hmm. What about GMO’s? Maybe this is important to you, maybe it’s not, but shouldn’t you at least have the information to be able to make your own choice if you want to? Obviously GMO labeling is a hot topic in…

Healthy Fruit Dip Recipe

Fruit Dip 3

Healthy Fruit Dip I made this fruit dip for my Local Summer Slim Down weigh in clients to sample this week. Everyone that tried it, loved it! When I teach clients about healthy snacking, I always say to pair a protein and a veggie or fruit. For example, the natural sugars in fruit will give a quick burst of energy and the fiber and protein will help sustain it by keeping blood sugars regulated. Examples would be apples paired with this Healthy Fruit Dip,  Hand-full of walnuts and berries, string cheese and an orange. Other examples of healthy snack pairings would be things like carrots, celery with hummus or banana and Natural Almond butter. More healthy snack ideas can be found HERE. Now on to this super simple recipe! 1/2 cup Plain greek yogurt 1 T Natural Peanut Butter (the oil on top kind, my fav is Schmuckers) 1 tsp Raw…
