Happy August! (I can’t believe it’s August already!) I have been keeping you updated on the broken links that you may come across within the recipes. An old plugin broke on the site which caused this. After my IT guy spent months fixing it, I am now at the stage of HAND fixing each broken link so it’s taking me some time. In the meantime, if you see a link with a line through it, still use that ingredient (the line just means that it is broken) Blessings, amie sue

How to Encourage Loved Ones to Eat Healthy

  Free Recipes (Photo View), #1 — Introduction | Free, #2 - Successfully Transitioning Your Diet

I feel so blessed to have a husband who supports eating healthy.  I will never forget something he said to me early on in our relationship… “I don’t care if we wear second-hand clothing to save money, but we will always aim to purchase organic foods.”  We have held true to this for over ten years. BUT I realize and understand that a lot of people struggle with getting the whole family on board when adapting a whole food diet, cooked and/or raw.

#4 – Vitamin B12 for Vegans

 Members Only, #3 - Nutrition Basics

Vegans, whether cooked or raw, are at risk of not getting enough B12 into their diet. Vitamin B12 benefits your mood, energy level, memory, heart, skin, hair, digestion and more. It is also an essential vitamin for addressing adrenal fatigue, multiple metabolic functions—including enzyme production, DNA synthesis, and hormonal balance, and maintaining healthy nervous and cardiovascular systems. So this is nothing to sneeze at. It is wise to be tested regularly for homocysteine or methylmalonic acid levels, which can indicate a B12 deficiency.

Are Raw Desserts Healthy for You?

 Members Only, #2 - Successfully Transitioning Your Diet, #3 - Nutrition Basics

When it comes to raw desserts, just because a person slaps the words raw, vegan, paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, or (amazingly) all of the above to a food doesn't necessarily make it a FREE FOR ALL dessert. Naturally, these taglines come with powerful effects if you add them into your life but we must do so in moderation. First and foremost we need to learn how to pay attention to our own bodies (not just our taste buds) and feed it accordingly.
