Clarissa’s 4 Kitchen Staples

Keeping a well-stocked kitchen is crucial in staying on track with healthy eating. Our schedules don’t always allow for fresh, organic meals on a daily basis. But it is absolutely still possible to eat healthy in a time crunch – and keeping foods conveniently on hand at all times will help you tremendously.   To name a few – stock your kitchen with frozen veggies, canned beans, nuts and seeds, healthy condiments and seasonings to grab at a moments notice. Organic is always best, when possible.   Here are 4 of my favorite staples to keep on hand at all times…   Coconut Oil — with its anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-fungal properties and the healthy fats it provides – this is definitely one of my favorite staples to keep on hand. Not only can it be used in the kitchen, but you can also use it on your skin as a natural moisturizer, and in your smoothies for a kick of […]

Clarissa's Batch Cooking Tips!

  We’ve all had those nights where you look at the clock, wonder how it’s 7 pm already, and go into panic mode about what you can scrounge up for dinner to feed your family.

Top 5 Reasons Your Body Loves a Detox

Top 5 Reasons Your Body Loves a Detox

  There are a million reasons to detox – and probably a million different ways to go about it. But, what must one look for, what’s the best way? I’ve seen from my years in practice that to be completely effective, a detox program needs to contain the following key components: some fiber to scrub the gut, bind toxins and promote their elimination anti-microbial herbs to kill bad bugs in the gut and maintain healthy flora targeted nutrients to boost the liver and prevent the accumulation of toxins digestive enzymes to help the body break down food and assist digestion a balanced blend of vitamins & minerals to safely support you during detox a dietary plan that eliminates problem foods, but doesn’t leave you feeling hungry An effective detox must not only address the toxins we eat, drink, breath and put on our bodies every day – but just as important – it MUST contain the specific ingredients needed to neutralize or eliminate […]

3 things you can do to improve your health….

Can I tell you something? There’s something that I didn’t realize when I first started working one-on-one with people who want to make their health and wellness a priority, people who are sick of feeling less than amazing, and people who are confused about who to listen to for advice. Here it is: Most of us already know what we need to be doing to improve our health! There is a lot of information (and mis-information) when it comes to the foods we eat. Just look at the variety of books in the ‘diet’ or ‘health’ section of your local bookstore. But when it comes down to it, we still know the basic things we should be doing to improve our health.
