I've been having so much fun working on my holiday book collection. Those who
know me well know that my 3 favorite things to do related to my work are
researching, writing and connecting.
By connecting I mean sharing my skills and knowledge with others in a way
that's up front and personal. I love to teach classes, coach individuals and
lead small groups. I also love to create in the kitchen. It's so much fun to
take seemingly simple fresh, whole ingredients and transform them into mouth
I've had lots of fun this past month playing with holiday recipes as I did final masterful tweaks to perfect the recipes for my books. The pumpkin pie has been the big hit. I did a few minor changes to the recipe and it's divine.
I made the pumpkin pie a couple of weeks ago for a DVD demonstration and offered some to my son's 14 year old friend. He said it was the best pumpkin pie he's ever
I offered some to my finicky 10 year old and he asked me to make it again for
I brought it to a raw foods potluck and I practically got knocked to the
ground by people swarming for the recipe.
I've offered some to everyone who's come into my home and the vote is
unanimous. How can a gluten free, dairy free, low glycemic, raw pumpkin pie
taste so good? If you want to find out for yourself, you'll just have to buy my
book “Fresh ‘n Fun Thanksgiving Feast” and the DVD “Indulge Without the Bulge”.
As I watch the downward health spiral each year, beginning with Halloween and
ending on New Year's Day, I can't help but wonder what the world would be like
if everyone ate from my recipe books instead of in the usual immune system
depleting ways. It would sure put a lot of doctors, hospitals and fast food
restaurants out of business.
Wake up, I'm dreaming again. Well, at least I sleep well at night, knowing that I'm part of the solution rather than part of the problem. You can be too, by sharing with all your friends how delicious healthy Thanksgiving foods can be.
Love and Health to you,
