Allergies under control, naturally

I've had bad allergies since I moved to L.A. (go figure). For years I tried every pill, powder, and spray on the market. I consulted several doctors and gave acupuncture a try. And nothing worked. Still awful headaches, sneezing, and running nose. So I gave up and used Flonase for several months, which was the only things that made a difference. However, I always felt guilty about it because it's a steroid with who-knows-what long term effect on my body. My chance to give it up came when my insurance ended, and instead of $20 a pop for Flonase it would cost $130!

If you're in Los Angeles or Canada, I HIGHLY recommend going to see Robert. I had an incredible experience, beyond any massage or chiropractic work I've ever had. If you're not in those areas, look into Cranio Sacral work and give it a try.

Food, Inc. review


I finally saw Food, Inc. last week in Santa Monica. I was crying within the first 20 minutes - not Earthlings sobs, but a few tears for the sake of the animal abuse (especially the chickens).

What is quinoa? Pronounced keen-wah, this grain-like seed is full of protein and calcium (who needs meat or milk?!) Very versatile and can be used like rice, and it's gluten-free. Wanna learn more? Check out my article on Organic Authority

I'm on a mission to cook more for myself in order to save money, eat healthier, and reduce packaging. Now that I'm a gluten, soy, & sugar free diet I have to be more creative. Last night I put together a great dish with 3 elements - it was flavorful, satisfying, and extremely healthy.


Minted Quinoa with Pine Nuts, adapted from Whole Foods recipe:

If you're wondering, "what is a frappucino", clearly you don't go to Starbucks, and I don't blame you. While their coffee and tea drinks are tasty, they're certainly not healthy - they're full of sugar and usually not organic. Plus, there are only a few vegan options (though they're working on that and have been adding more to the menu). I recently tried their soy frappucino (which by the way is a sugary, blended iced coffee drink) and while it was good, I felt super guilty knowing what was in it. But every now and then I crave that sugary coffee taste, so luckily there's a healthy option!
