New Video: Healthy Mindset and Music

Posted on by Jessica Remmers in Health, News | Leave a comment

I talk a lot about food and nutrition, but the most important thing to our health is a positive mindset and how we deal with hard times. Someone can seem perfectly “healthy” on the outside, taking good care of themselves, eating healthy and working out, but if we don’t spend even more time on maintaining a positive and grateful mind, dis-ease can creep in. Art and music is one way we deal with a hard situation to connect to the beauty and humanity we all share. I found a “perfect” song a few weeks ago that really helped me and I share the story in my latest video. I want to know which songs/movies/art helps you??

Pumpcornbread #12daysOfChristmas

Posted on by Jessica Remmers in News | Leave a comment

Can’t decide between…

Pumpkin bread and Cornbread? Why not try Pumpcornbread? I got this recipe from Debbie Adler’s vegan, gluten-free, allergy-free cookbook “Sweet Debbie’s Organic Treats!” This hit the spot and filled the air with a blissful Holiday aroma. I recommend this cookbook to anyone wanting to do some vegan, gluten-free baking as it is filled with so many delicious ideas…I will go into a more in depth review in the coming weeks as I try more recipes! For now, please enjoy Pumpcornbread 🙂


Happy Day Two of #12DaysOfChristmas see you tomorrow for day Three ♥
