Hello Everyone,


I am thinking of you and I want you to be well - really well.  


Please take a serious look at your diet and your lifestyle in this blessed month of May where flowers and new growth abounds. I have heard of a number of people recently who have received a cancer diagnosis.  


This month I want to look at some alternative strategies which may be useful even if you choose to follow the traditional chemotherapy route. And sometimes, depending on the type of cancer, aggressive chemotherapy protocols ARE the route to go - along with alternative treatments, vitamin C infusions, acupuncture AND good foods AND good friends! If you'd like my perspective on cancer, read on here...

Lilacs are Divine  

I love lilacs. May is lilac month here in the Northwest. I have 2 lilac trees in my garden and there is nothing more divine that having a bouquet of lilacs beside your bed. Old, established gardens are where you will find lilacs and at certain times of the year, florists stock lilacs as well. Flowers are healing - treat yourself! 



Moving to a New Radio Show

  Blog Talk Radio

On June 2nd I am moving back to Blog Talk Radio. I have enjoyed my time on Healthy Life.Net but I just felt as if I needed to make a change back to a radio network where I can have a full-uninterrupted hour.


Show time will move back to 8am PT, which is a great time for a radio show - especially for the host!  


Now I can enjoy my radio show and then have the whole day to do other things before my teleconference starts at 5:30pm PT. Monday is a busy day for me, and this way the schedule suits me better. Thank you for listening to me on Healthy Life.Net - I have made many new friends there and thank you for following me back to BlogTalk.  


Join me on Monday June 2nd at 8am PT - call in and I will do a spot reading answer questions for you. Call 646-478-3561.

A Book I Like


Last weekend was Mother's Day, which I spent on the couch, wrapped up in a blanket, sipping soup and reading books - while recovering from a bronchial infection. Yes, sometimes health experts get sick!  


A friend lent me The language of Flowers, a novel by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it's been more useful in communicating mistrust and solitude.  


After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, she is unable to get close to anybody, and her only connection to the world is through flowers and their meanings. Now eighteen and emancipated from the system with nowhere to go, Victoria realizes she has a gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But an unexpected encounter with a mysterious stranger has her questioning what's been missing in her life. You know that I don't normally read novels, but under the circumstances, and because I was grabbed by the first few pages - I read on for the whole day! The story revolves around an orphan girl, living on the edge, who has a unique way with flowers. I think you will find the story very intriguing.

Yummy Cookies Made of Chick Pea (Garbanzo) Flour

My daughter is a wonderful cook. Lately she shared this unique cookie recipe with me that her children love! This is her comment: "I made these and kids both loved them. I used agave instead of honey. Instead of choc chips I chopped up 1/4 cup of Lindt 90% dark chocolate. Really moist and dense. Good protein mini meal."

Try these grain-free, peanut butter, chocolate chip, cookie dough balls recipe - adapted from Spry Living, see author credit below. These gluten-free cookie dough bites that are a peanut butter-lover's dream!

  • 1 1/4 cups canned or cooked chickpeas, well-rinsed and patted dry with a paper towel
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter (must be NATURAL peanut butter - regular peanut butter makes the cookies oily) Sunflower Butter, or almond butter
  • 1/4-cup honey (or agave)
  • 1-teaspoon baking powder
  • A pinch of salt if you use unsalted peanut butter
  • 1/2-cup chocolate chips (we used ¼ cup - see note above)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Make sure to scrape the sides and the top to get the little chunks of chickpeas and process again until they are well combined.
  2. Stir in the chocolate chips. The mixture will be very thick and sticky.
  3. With wet hands form into 1 1/2" balls. Place onto a Silpat or a piece of parchment paper. If you want them to look more like normal cookies, press down slightly on the balls. Bake for about 10 minutes. They don't do much rising. Cookies may need three to five minutes longer depending on your oven. 
Recipe courtesy of Erin, the author behind the blog Texanerin Baking, which is all about making healthier baked goods taste just as delicious and decadent as the original. Whether it's 100% whole grain, gluten-free, or grain-free, her recipes have been healthified in some way.
