This New Year is Hot! Flax Seed Green Smoothie for Hormonal Help

Happy New Year! I spent the last few days of 2018 experiencing the wonder of hot flashes. A friend soon turned me onto the idea of seed-cycling for hormonal balance.

Celery Juice Recipe for the Celery Averse

As I’ve grown older, my taste in fruits and vegetables has also grown. It’s amazing to me that at some point in my life, I hated mushrooms, or eggplant.

There were many fabulous juices, so I thought I’d try to recreate them. Here’s an interesting combination that’s pretty easy to…
