My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

Sugar Elimination and Green Smoothies Make a Difference

This post is part of the Rockstar's Friday Flashback.

My flashback is to photos of me 15 months ago. I thought I'd show me right before I started my sugar elimination. These were the most flattering photo of the photoshoot. In other words I wasn't trying to take a dramatic "before" photo and as photogenic as I usually am, I didn't care for the photos. (David is adorable, though!). I just came back from the hair salon and was at my best, so Scott took a few photos. I had no idea what lied ahead of me, but I knew I didn't care for how puffy I felt and didn't like the photos. (I'm glad they serve a purpose now.)



This one was taken on my office porch spontaneously at noon today by my office manager, Dino.
It was easy to take shots I liked.

It is so worth getting sugar and artificial ingredients out of your diet and adding in lots of raw plant-based food including juicing and green smoothies. It's worth the time! It's worth the investment!
Warning: This is no fad diet; These results ARE typical of anyone sustaining these beneficial lifestyle changes.

Photoshop is not used to alter these photos.

I think you look great in both photos. The most important thing is that you feel good about yourself. Keep smiling. You are so beautiful when you do.
