When we think of summer vibes, tropical vacations, and beaches, one of the first fruits that pop up in our mind is the crowned queen herself, the pineapple!
Pineapple is more than just a refreshing snack or dessert. It is a great source of many nutrients such as Vitamin C and B, and minerals like manganese. This fruit is available all year round so whatever season you are in, you can always enjoy this vibrant juicy fruit.
Here are some health benefits of pineapple:
Charged with Vitamin C
A powerful antioxidant that amplifies the immune system, encourages healing and growth and is a vehicle for faster absorption of iron in our body.
Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain which can help reduce inflammation and supports the healing of wounds and burns. Moreover, this enzyme is linked to supporting digestion and minimizing the effects of diarrhea.
Average consumption of pineapple can help strengthen your bones and prevent osteoporosis. This is because, along with calcium and other trace minerals, this fruit is rich in manganese which improves mineral and bone density.
Feeling down lately? Get your natural energy booster from this manganese-rich fruit! Manganese is a cofactor in energy production, reproduction, and the regulation of brain activity.

Celery is a low-calorie, nutrient-packed food that is commonly found in most diets around the globe. Many people are unaware that celery is an excellent source of antioxidants, which can play a role in reducing oxidative stress and helping the body fight off free radical damage.
Let’s dip our celery with our favorite dressing while learning what makes this vegetable a force to be reckoned with.
Chronic inflammation is one reason that people can be susceptible to illness and disease. The anti-inflammatory compounds in celery can help to reduce joint pain associated with arthritis and osteoporosis.
Celery is a great snack or side dish for so many reasons. It’s packed with soluble and insoluble fiber to support a healthy digestive tract, and it has almost 95 percent water content. One cup of celery sticks has 5 grams of dietary fiber.
Celery is a good source of potassium and calcium, both of which help to maintain healthy heart rhythms. These minerals are also necessary for nerve conduction, muscle contraction and the maintenance of bone density.
Reinforces Immune System
Celery is abundant in antioxidants such as beta-carotene, vitamin C which battles free radicals which in excess can cause chronic diseases.
Cozy Celery Soup
2 tablespoons butter, olive oil, or ghee
1 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
8 cups chopped celery, about 12 stalks
1 lb potatoes, peeled and diced
4 cups of chicken or vegetable stock
Optional ½ cup parsley, for color
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
To serve: dill and sour cream
Heat the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion and let it cook for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more.
2 tablespoons butter,1 medium onion,4 cloves garlic. Add the celery, potatoes, and stock to the pot and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover the pot, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes and celery are soft.
8 cups chopped celery,1 lb potatoes,4 cups chicken or vegetable stock. Add the parsley to the pot (if using) then blend the soup either with an immersion blender or in small batches in your blender.

Happy Spring Everyone and welcome to pollen season. If you live in the South like I do, then you’ve most likely woken up with the “yellow snow” as we like to call it down here – all of those lovelies blooming flowers that create a yellow blanket over EVERYTHING! Not only is it tough to keep your car clean right now, but this is the time of year where my patients’ allergies start acting up.
This post is dedicated to giving you all of the goods on the recommendations and exact protocols I have used for over 20 years for allergy support in my office for my patients. Many times my patients are able to swap out their over the counter medications for these natural alternatives. My hope is that if I can provide you any relief now or throughout the year then I’ve done my job!
So without further ado, let’s jump to my recommendations –
Feed Your Body – what you eat definitely plays a role in how your immune system functions – the biggest culprits that will knock your immune system down the fastest are sugar, alcohol, and the chemicals in processed foods. Instead opt to eat more veggies, fruits high in Vitamin C, quality proteins and stay hydrated.
Clean your Air – As deemed appropriate and possible, environmental changes may be advisable to minimize ongoing allergen exposures. Relatively straightforward changes include using a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) air filters, house plants, and essential oils in the home. HEPA filters work to decrease the amount of allergens floating around your home by trapping airborne irritants such as pollen, dust, and pet dander. House plants can assist with air filtration – here’s a link to an entire blog post I wrote dedicated to that topic.
Rinse that Nose: A number of studies have indicated that saline nasal irrigation such as a netti pot can be useful in individuals with hay fever (acute rhinitis). A 2012 study looked at 10 research papers on the topic of saline nasal irrigation and found that saline nasal irrigation produced a “27.66% improvement in nasal symptoms, a 62.1% reduction in medicine consumption, a 31.19% acceleration of mucociliary clearance time, and a 27.88% improvement in quality of life”. Another over the counter option is a nasal wash kit – this one has been my favorite to use.
Supplement your System – There are a number of key nutrients needed to keep the immune system strong and assist with allergy symptoms during pollen season. I have created overall protocols that will support the system as well as protocols for those pesky allergy symptoms. You can click the link for each product to read more about the product and if you feel inclined, you can place an online order on our authorized website.
Allergy Support Protocols
Adult Allergy Support Bundle –– this protocol is ideally taken as prevention during allergy season.
Eggs are an excellent source of protein and healthy fats. One egg has 6 grams of protein with all nine “essential” amino acids, the building blocks of protein. That’s important because those are the ones your body can’t make by itself. The egg white holds about half that protein and only a small portion of the fat and cholesterol.
Time to crack the secrets of what makes the egg a yolk for wellness!
Good for the eyes
Eggs are rich in Vitamin A which is a significant nutrient for the eyes. It is important to note that Vitamin A deficiency is a leading cause of blindness in children in developing countries, emphasizing the importance of this nutrient. This food also contains zeaxanthin and lutein which has the ability to reduce the risk of macular degeneration.
Empowers the brain
Eggs are empowered by a nutrient called choline and 1 egg contains 125.5 milligrams of it which is 1/4 of your daily choline needs. Choline plays a significant role in your heart as well as in your brain and it helps in regulating mood and memory, as well as enhancing cognitive functions such as visual and verbal memory.
High in Protein
Eggs are an excellent source of protein, and contain all 9 essential amino acids. This means eggs are very good source for building muscle, making sure that cells function properly, and supplying the body with the essential proteins it needs to be healthy.
Bone Building Food
One of the naturally occurring sources of vitamin D is eggs. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, the maintenance of strong bones, the promotion of neuromuscular function, and the reduction of inflammation.
Easy Stovetop Shakshuka
1 tbsp ( 15 mL )extra virgin olive oil
1small onion, diced
1yellow pepper, diced
1 tsp ( 5 mL )thyme
1 tsp ( 5 mL )oregano
2garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp ( 30 mL )tomato paste
14 oz ( 400 g )can diced tomatoes
½ cup ( 125 mL )chickpeas, drained & rinsed
salt and pepper to taste
⅓ cup ( 75 mL )feta cheese, crumbled (optional)
4 organic, pastured eggs
fresh basil, for serving
Heat oil in an 11-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, yellow pepper, and jalapeño, stirring occasionally for 3-4 minutes. Add the thyme, oregano, garlic, and tomato paste and cook for another 2 minutes.
Add the diced tomatoes and bring to a low boil, reduce heat to medium-low add the chickpeas and simmer, stirring occasionally for 5-10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper then stir in feta.
Using the bottom of a ladle, make four indentations into the sauce for the eggs. Crack eggs one at a time and place them into the individual indentations.
Cook until egg whites have set, but the yolks are still runny approximately 6-8 minutes. If the top of the eggs is not set up as desired, cover them with a lid for 1-2 minutes. Do not leave the lid on too long or you will lose the yellow in the yolk. Garnish with fresh basil.
These tiny, yet powerful legumes are packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and protein that will surely invigorate your body’s overall function and resistance against infections! Torn between garbanzos and chickpeas? No need to pit them with each other because both are healthy; it’s just a matter of which flavor, color, and texture fit your palate or dish.
Let’s explore the health benefits of chickpeas!
Controls Blood Sugar Levels
Chickpeas are regarded as a healthy alternative to wheat or other high-gluten grains. Chickpeas have a high fiber content and can help you keep blood sugar and insulin levels steady after meals. Consuming chickpeas in place of wheat can also lead to lower postprandial (after meal) blood glucose (sugar) levels
Improve Heart Health
Chickpeas are an excellent source of potassium, fiber, and vitamins C and B6. They help lower the total cholesterol in the blood, reducing heart disease risk. Fiber also assists in plaque removal from arteries, improving heart health. This benefits the whole body.
Source of Protein
Chickpeas are a great source of protein as 1 cup of chickpeas contains 15 grams of protein.
Reduces fine lines
Chickpeas are an excellent source of manganese and a good source of B vitamins, which can help your skin in various ways, especially in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
You can use chickpeas as a face mask by simply mixing chickpea paste with turmeric. Leave it on your face for 15 minutes and rinse with cold water afterward. This can help brighten your face and helps reduce age spots.
Forged with Fiber
You can generate 6 grams of your 24% daily fiber needs in half a can of chickpeas and that already includes both soluble and insoluble fiber! Soluble fiber promotes good gut bacteria while the insoluble create soft stool which prevents constipation.
Yellow onion (or red onion)
Chickpea flour or other gluten-free flour
Put the chickpeas to soak for a minimum of 8 hours. I prefer to soak them overnight. Make sure it has enough water and is sitting on a large bowl. They will grow to double or even triple their size.
Blend the soaked chickpeas on low speed with the rest of the ingredients, except for the oil, on a food processor, little by little. You may have to stop the processor and mix the ingredients 2 or 3 times. Don’t overmix it! The mix should be crumbly; that’s why we don’t use pre-cooked chickpeas.
Make balls with the falafel mixture. They should be about 2-3 cm in diameter and placed on a tray. If you find it hard to compress them in your hand, add some extra chickpea flour. Don’t worry; they will tighten up after placing them in the refrigerator.
Let them rest in the refrigerator for a minimum of 1 hour, ideally 2 hours.
Put the oil on high heat, preferably on a flat pan, and optionally add a roughly smashed garlic clove to infuse it.
Set a bowl with paper towels to place the fried falafel balls.
Test the heat. As the oil starts smoking, throw a pinch of the falafel mix, it should emerge immediately and brown in two seconds.
Add falafel balls in batches of 6 (depending on how large your pan is). Just ensure you have about 2 cm between each other. Remember, don’t overcrowd the pan. It should take about 1-2 minutes per side.
This one is the kind of recipe that is very filling, everyone can repeat as much as they want, and surely you will end up with more for later in the week since it can last for as long as four days in the fridge.
Grapefruits are a small but sweet citrus fruit that originates in Asia, India, and Indonesia. They are also known as pomelo or sudachi and have a tangy flavor. Like other citrus, grapefruits are delicious and bursting with antioxidants.
Let’s discover whether this citrus is as powerful as its ancestor fruits.
Empowers Your Immune System
The winning blend of vitamins A and C, which helps your immune system to function properly, as well as an antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage makes this fruit a formidable asset for your immune system. If you are craving fruit, grab some grapefruit!
Packed With Antioxidants
All varieties of grapefruits are healthy but the red and pink ones are more supercharged than the others due to their high content of antioxidants such as beta-carotene and lycopene. These antioxidants protect your cells from damage caused by free radicals.
Blood Sugar Management
If you’re trying to manage your blood sugar or lose weight, raw grapefruit is a good choice. The lower glycemic index (GI) makes it easier for the body to digest and use. It also has lots of fiber and vitamins!
Higher Vitamin A Content
Grapefruit provides a significant amount of vitamin A. One-half of a grapefruit contains about one-third of the recommended daily value of vitamin A, which is higher than the 4% in oranges.
*** As a side not – be mindful that some medications due interact poorly with grapefruit, so be sure to check that out before you indulge!
Grapefruit Avocado Salmon Salad with Poblano-Lime Dressing
1 grapefruit, sectioned
1 blood orange, sectioned
1 avocado, sliced into wedges
Large handfuls of spicy greens such as arugula or watercress
Large handful of pea shoots (optional)
Radish, thinly sliced
Toasted pumpkin seeds for garnish
1/2 pound salmon; preferably wild (optional)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Poblano-Lime vinaigrette (recipe below)
To prepare the salmon: Season the salmon with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the salmon, skin-side down, and cook for about 4 minutes; flip, and continue cooking for another 2 1/2 to 3 minutes on the other side, until medium-rare.
Assembly: Toss the arugula (or watercress) and other greens with the desired amount of dressing. Layer the dressed greens, sectioned grapefruit and blood orange, avocado, radish, and salmon on top. Drizzle a bit more dressing on top, and garnish with toasted pumpkin seeds, a sprinkling of coarse sea salt, and a few turns of freshly ground black pepper.
1 large poblano
1/4 cup of lime juice
1 clove of garlic
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
3 tablespoons thick Greek yogurt
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons good quality extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Roast the pepper on an open gas flame, turning with metal tongs, until charred on all sides (alternatively, you can place the poblano under the broiler or roast it on the grill, turning every few minutes). Place in a paper bag for about 10 minutes. Remove from the bag, and, with the side of a chef’s knife, scrape away the charred skin. Cut open and seed the peppers.
Roughly chop the poblano and add it to the blender, along with the lime juice, garlic, cilantro, and yogurt. Blend until smooth. With the blender running, slowly add the olive oil in a steady stream. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Onion is a main household food staple that can enhance practically any savory dish. In the culinary world, it is considered both a spice and a vegetable, but botanically, it is a fruit. Whatever you may want to call it, one thing for sure is that the onion holds a special place in our hearts and for our overall health.
Let’s dive in and uncover the health benefits of onion.
Stabilizes blood sugar levels
Offer a healthy food infused with onions at your family gathering because this spice is known to regulate blood sugar because of its flavonoids.
The sweetness and umami flavor of onion is truly a treat but the biggest takeaway is its ability to improve your digestion, therefore, strengthening your immune system and minimizing inflammation.
Onion is dense with nutrients that can improve your overall health. It is rich in potassium which increases your energy levels and metabolism, manganese promotes the creation of connective tissues, and bones.
Be happy with the tears that onion brings because that strong smell is the compound called allicin which eliminates bacteria and toxins in our bodies.
6 cups homemade beef broth or store-bought beef broth
10 sprigs thyme
2 bay leaves
1 baguette or gluten free baguette
1 garlic clove, cut in half lengthwise
2 teaspoons sherry, preferably Fino or Manzanilla
4 ounces Gruyere cheese, grated (about 1 cup)
Kitchen twine, six 8-ounce or four 16-ounce oven-safe ramekins or bowls (optional)
In a large Dutch oven or other large pot, melt 3 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the oil and onions; cook onions until softened, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Add the salt, pepper, and sugar; continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are deep golden brown and caramelized, and reduce heat slightly if onions seem to be browning too quickly, 35 to 45 minutes more.
Add wine and raise the heat to high. Cook until almost all liquid has evaporated, 8 to 10 minutes.
Tie thyme and bay leaves into a bundle with twine. Add broth and herb bundle to the pot with onions. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, uncovered, until broth is thickened and flavorful, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Taste and adjust seasoning.
Heat the broiler. Cut two 1/2-inch baguette slices for every serving of soup. Place baguette slices on a rimmed baking sheet and toast in the oven until crisp and dry but not browned, about 1 minute per side. Rub one side of each toast with the garlic clove and set aside.
Place ramekins or oven-safe bowls on a rimmed baking sheet, add 1/2 teaspoon of sherry to the bottom of each, and ladle soup on top. Top each serving of soup with two garlic-rubbed toasts. Divide cheese among the servings, covering the bread and some of the soup. Carefully transfer the baking sheet to the oven and broil until the cheese is melted and bubbling, 4 to 8 minutes. (Alternatively, if using regular soup bowls: Top each garlic-rubbed toast with some cheese and return to broiler to melt, about 2 minutes more. Divide sherry and soup among bowls, sprinkle with remaining cheese, and top each serving with two cheese toasts).
exposed to toxins Every. Single. Day. There are approximately 80,000 chemicals registered for use in the U.S., and 800,000,000+ pounds of herbicides are used yearly on our
crops. 1-3 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports
that hundreds of these chemicals are present in our bodies. Research shows that
certain chemicals may affect our immune, endocrine, nervous, and reproductive
fact, your body produces its own toxins, or waste known as endogenous toxins,
simply by functioning. Your body also encounters external (exogenous) toxins,
or chemicals made outside of your body. They are in the air you breathe, the
food you eat, the water you drink, and the products you touch.4,5
Air and Water Pollutants
Certain Personal Care Products
Dyes and Paints

Pesticides and Insecticides
Preservatives and Additives
You become what you eat
typical America diet favors processed foods that tend to be high in refined
sugar, trans fats, and salt. Processed
foods often contain pesticides, artificial ingredients, and genetically
modified organisms that can contribute to toxin build up in the body.6
Exposure to these toxins can overburden
your system’s natural ability to detoxify.
your toxic burden can reduce your odds of asthma, cancer, Alzheimer’s,
infertility, hormonal and period problems and so much more. Reducing your toxic
load can help you lose weight, restore your energy levels and balance your
hormones. It can help you conceive a healthy baby and raise a healthy child.
the body is overloaded with toxins, these toxins cannot be eliminated from the
body and they slow down cellular function. This translates to decreasing your
body’s function; the brain won’t fire as quickly so you become foggy and forgetful.
This can mean you gain weight or feel tired and/or unmotivated. Many people experience symptoms of toxicity
but don’t recognize what these signs really can mean. How many of the symptoms below do you have?

Your Organs of Detoxification
My 21 day Reset Detox Programs are designed to stimulate specific detoxification organs in the body—the liver, kidneys, and intestines. With help from these organs, your toxic load can decrease, and your body can concentrate its energy on detoxifying and cleaning up. This can help you achieve optimal health by cleansing your body from the inside out. The goal is to learn how to enhance your body’s ability to detox and remove these toxins on a daily basis. No matter where start, everyone can benefit from a detox program.
Aids the body in metabolizing fat, protein, and carbohydrates
Helps transform many toxins into harmless agents
Filter waste and excess fluid from the blood
Regulate and release the right balance of sodium, phosphorus, and potassium for the body to function properly
Digests food so that nutrients can be absorbed into the blood and transported to the liver
Provides a barrier that blocks toxins from the rest of the body
Absorbs water and electrolytes, forming waste that is excreted from the body
Produces antibodies for gastrointestinal health
Contains bacteria that create fatty acids and some vitamins for extra nutritional support
Why you may not be losing weight
body can’t release toxins through your intestines (poop) or kidney (urine) then
they can be deposited and stored in the body.
Over months, years, or even decades these can build up in the body and
the most common sites for us to deposit toxins is in our fat cells since many
of the chemicals in today’s environment and food are lipotrophic, meaning that
FAT. The challenge is that we
have to release those stored toxins from the fat cells before the fat cells can
shrink. This is one reason why you may
have been eating better and working out more but still seeing NO weight loss results.
Where We Store Toxins
What the heck is metabolic detoxification
detoxification is your body’s natural process of neutralizing and eliminating
toxins from your body. This three-phase
process unlocks fat-soluble toxins and converts them to a water-soluble state
that is easier for your body to remove. Your body needs key nutrients and
phytonutrients to support each of these phases.
Three phases of metabolic
Phase I: Unlock – Stored fat-soluble toxins transform into an “unlocked” state that is more water-soluble, and in many cases, more toxic than its original form. The foods and supplements recommended in the 21 day Reset Detox program delivers nutrients that activate enzymes required for Phase I reactions. It also supplies antioxidants that reduce stress on your body, such as tissue damage sometimes caused by these enzyme activities.
Phase II: Neutralize – The highly toxic substances produced in Phase I convert to non-toxic molecules and become even more water-soluble. The foods and supplements recommended in the 21 day Reset Detox program supplies key nutrients and amino acids needed to support Phase II enzymes. These enzymes enhance the water solubility of toxins.
Phase III: Eliminate – Water-soluble toxins leave your cells, and your body eliminates them. The foods and supplements recommended in the 21 Day Detox Program provides your body with plant-based fiber and water, which aid in toxin elimination.
A Simple, Effective Answer is HERE!
You can create more efficiency around detoxification by modifying your daily food choices, and habits to support your body’s natural ability to detoxify. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above or feel like it’s just time for a reset, I encourage you to check out my upcoming Virtual Group 21 Day Detox Reset Program. The 21 Day Group Detox Program is designed for balancing hormones, resetting your digestive system, weight loss, improved energy, better sleep and so much more!
