This creamy, cold pumpkin pie smoothie is like drinking fall in a glass! Skip out on the processed holiday drinks and opt for this instead. You won’t be missing out at all. Top it with a dash of coconut cream to take this recipe over the top.
Pumpkin is packed with antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, E, beta-carotene, and zea-xanthin which can help prevent age-related macular disease. Pumpkin is also a rich source of B-vitamins such as folates, niacin, thiamin, and pantothenic acid and minerals like calcium, copper, potassium, and phosphorus.
Pumpkin also contains immune-boosting properties which can help the body stay strong and ward off common colds and flus that may be going around. Pumpkin is excellent way to replenish and restore the body after a workout as it is high in potassium which helps to restore the body’s balance of electrolytes after exercise and keeps muscles functioning at their best.

If you’ve ever felt alone in your illness or on your healing journey, know that the Angelic realm is here for you, watching you, and cheering you on every step of the way. The Angels know just how challenging life on earth can be during these times of rapid change and uncertainty. Fortunately, we are blessed with the ability to call on these Angels for help, guidance, comfort, and support.
You may know the Angel of Healing, Angel of Deliverance, or Angel of Purpose from my first book Medical Medium, but you might not yet know that there are many more Angels working around the clock to support you in the most miraculous of ways!
The Life-Changing Angels
In addition to the Essential Angels and Unknown Angels I introduced in Medical Medium, there is another group of twelve female Angels called the Life-Changing Angels who I introduce for the first time in my new book Life-Changing Foods: Save Yourself And The Ones You Love With The Hidden Healing Powers Of Fruits And Vegetables, These mighty Angels, each assisted by a group of other Angels, complete important missions to look after our food supply. The fifty life-changing foods I detail in my new book can get to us and truly be life-changing because of the never-ending work of these Life-Changing Angels.
In fact, once you understand just how involved these Angels are in supporting each piece of life-changing food, you will very likely be in awe of all they do for you. From shifting the way the wind blows to cushioning the fall as a ripe piece of fruit tumbles from the tree, these Angels are constantly supporting the food we consume, our earth that it grows from, and the health of those people planting, harvesting, and enjoying the abundance.
Along with guiding and vitalizing the fruits and vegetables from their birth to consumption, these Angels oversee projects that support a thriving food supply, such as the rapidly growing organic produce movement. At the same time, these Angels attempt to minimize and prevent the use of harmful chemicals and pesticides and other detrimental actions that could potentially damage the life-changing foods everyone on earth needs to thrive. Now that I’ve given you a little information about this Angelic group, let me introduce you to a few of the twelve Angels I describe in Life-Changing Foods.
Angel of Harmony
Do you struggle with mindful eating? Have you had a challenging relationship with food in the past? The Angel of Harmony can help you develop a completely new relationship around food and mealtimes. Call upon the Angel of Harmony to help you find gratitude and calm around your eating experiences. She will support you in connecting with your body and its needs during these times. If you’ve ever struggled with over-eating, under-eating or other distressing behaviors or situations surrounding food, the Angel of Harmony will help you release grief or anxiety and support you in embarking on a new way of relating to the nourishment on your plate!
Angel of Solidarity
As the holiday season draws near and holiday meals and celebrations arise, you might want to try reaching out to the Angel of Solidarity for support. If you want to commit to my 28-day Healing Cleanse from my book Medical Medium or any other life-giving eating habits over the holidays and are hoping for the support of family, friends, co-workers, and even restaurants, the Angel of Solidarity can stealthily steer your companions towards offering their own support for the inspiring dietary choices you are making. The Angel of Solidarity’s influence can even dissuade them from trying to entice you with foods that don’t serve your body or healing goals.
Angel of Insight
If you feel like you keep breaking your commitment to yourself to eat healthy foods or find it impossible to avoid foods you want to keep out of your diet, ask the Angel of Insight to bring her guidance and support into your life. Not only can she embolden your spirit and will, but she can also bestow you with the gift of inspiration to stay aboard the bandwagon of health and healing even over bumpy roads. Many of the positive movements I mentioned earlier are overseen by the Angel of Insight, including seed-saving and the current revival of farmers’ markets.
Angel of Enrichment
If you want to get as much uniquely tailored benefit from the “Holy Four” food groups I share in Life-Changing Foods, call out to the Angel of Enrichment. This incredible Angel can boost the nutritional value of the fruits, vegetables, wild foods, herbs and spices you bring into your diet. From the phytochemicals to the vitamins and minerals, the Angel of Enrichment can adjust the levels of each nutrient in your food to reflect the needs of your body in that given moment. You can read more about the “Holy Four,” the critical four food groups we all need to thrive, in my new book Life-Changing Foods where I illuminate some of the most life-transforming foods that fall within those categories.
Asking for the Angels’ Assistance
You can call upon the Life-Changing Angels for assistance just like you would the Essential Angels or Unknown Angels. It is important to address them by name and say your request out loud, even if you are only able to whisper. “Angel of Harmony, please be with me during this meal,” you might ask aloud before sitting down to dinner. Have faith in knowing that this practice will alert the Angel whose aid you need. If you are unable to speak for health reasons or just can’t get the words out in that moment, mentally call upon the Angel of Deliverance to assist you in making contact with the other Angels.
Waiting for their Response
Have you ever tried to call on an Angel and felt like no immediate change took place? We must remember that the Angels aren’t necessarily always obvious in their assistance. Perhaps their support comes in the form of a gentle, calm-inducing breeze, or a particularly sweet moment in a dream. Maybe we don’t feel their presence, but the following day another person we run into offers the support we had desperately been seeking. Each Angels’ approach in supporting this world is uniquely their own, and we must continue to hold faith in the fact they they are watching and listening to every request that leaves our lips. Do not ever consider yourself a burden to the Angels or think you request their aid too often. The Angels find joy and purpose in the wholehearted pleas of those asking for help, so continue to let them support you! These Angels are powerful, their love is fierce, and they want nothing more than to see you vibrantly alive and filled with peace!
It can be exceptionally hard to hold on to faith in today’s world, but right now is when all of us need faith the most. If you struggle with having faith in Angels, let go of the illustrated images that might be dancing through your head, and visualize them as the incomprehensibly powerful light-workers they truly are. They are urgently trying to fight back against the troublemakers of the day who have lost their faith and want to destroy yours as well. You can reach out to the Angel of Faith and ask her to help build up your faith reserves. You can also recognize that this information from Life-Changing Foods has opened you up to ideas and truths you were never aware of before now. You can start rebuilding your faith by holding on to moments where these new truths you’ve learned unquestionably resonate in your own life.
The Angelic Army By Your Side
You can read about the other eight life-changing Angels In my book Life-Changing Foods. In the “Life-Changing-Angels” chapter, I go into greater detail about the intricacies of these Angels’ jobs, and I hope this new knowledge can open your eyes to just how much the Angelic realm weaves in and out of your daily life. Although we cannot see these Angels, it can bring a sense of joy and awe to know that the next time you are watering your freshly planted radishes or picking out heirloom tomatoes at the local farmers market, a Life-Changing Angel might just have her eye on you!
You can now enter each situation in your life knowing that you are far from alone. You have an entire realm of Angels beside you! As they support and encourage you, know that every compassionate action you practice towards yourself, others, or the world is actually an encouragement to the Angels who deeply long for good to overcome here on earth.
Not only are the Angels here for you, but Spirit and I are here for you as well. I believe in the power of the Angels, and I know that miraculous things can begin to happen once you bring them into your life. To learn more about these powerful, hard-working Angels, I highly recommend you order a copy of Life-Changing Foods: Save Yourself And The Ones You Love With The Hidden Healing Powers Of Fruits And Vegetables and learn from the information Spirit’s revealed to me about the unseen support available to us.

Have you ever mindlessly snacked on a piece of fruit, or eaten some salad or steamed vegetables without much connection to how these foods are helping you? It’s easy in our fast paced, stress-filled lives to be anything but mindful, especially when we eat. And yet, if we really knew just what these healing foods were doing for us, we would be in awe and reverence of them.
The healing properties of the fruits, vegetables, spices, herbs, and wild foods I share with you in my new book Life Changing Foods: Save Yourself And The Ones You Love With The Hidden Healing Powers of Fruits & Vegetables, are present even when we do mindlessly eat these foods. Even if you ate a banana so fast that you barely remember doing it, you’d still get many of that banana’s phenomenal healing benefits. That’s how generous these healing foods are. But no one yet knows just how important fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens really are and exactly what they offer us because medical and food science and research have only discovered less than 1% of the miraculous healing properties of these foods.
Something very special happens when you begin to understand what your food is doing for you - it amplifies the healing properties it offers you physically, emotionally, and spiritually, because you will want to eat more of them. You'll also learn how to eat them at the best time and in the best way. This is the information I give you about the more than 50 foods in my book Life-Changing Foods. Chances are that you're going to be inspired to bring more of the life-changing foods into your diet when you really know the truth about the many healing properties they can offer you. You may even eat them more mindfully too! It's so exciting for me to know that you will be benefiting even more from the healing properties of these essential foods, because all I care about is that you, and all of us, heal and move forward together.
Along with the four free recipes in video and written form you receive when you pre-order Life-Changing Foods, I also wanted to share another recipe sneak peek with you from the book, plus include a video of how to make it. This recipe is so delicious, easy, and indulgent. It makes for a satisfying treat that’s packed with flavor and nutrition.
The key ingredient for this recipe is berries. They are one of the best foods we can eat due to the abundance of antioxidants they contain. We need these antioxidants to fight the aging (oxidation) process, and to stay alive and healthy in the face of constant dangers to our health. The deep purple, blue, red, and black hues of berries come from the polyphenols known as anthocyanins (including malvidin) and anthocyanins, which bring powerful, health promoting benefits to those who consume them. Berries are also rich in dimethyl resveratrol and dozens of other phytochemicals, amino acids, coenzymes, and co-compounds that have yet to be discovered by science and are more plentiful and bioavailable in berries than in any other food. Berries are also an incredible brain food, heart health aid, and support for fertility.
Try bringing berries into your regular diet if you experience illness or symptoms, including high cholesterol, ovarian cysts, irregular menstruation, brain cancer, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), stroke, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, encephalitis, epilepsy, Huntington’s disease, narcolepsy, osteomyelitis, Tourette’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis (MS), atherosclerosis, heart disease, ovarian cancer, atrial fibrillation, prostate cancer, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), mystery infertility, endometriosis, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), acne, weight gain, bladder infections, fibroids, hypoglycemia, psoriasis, adenomas, edema, thyroid nodules, hot flashes, sensations of humming or vibration in the body, headaches, nerve pain; mineral deficiencies, frozen shoulder, panic attacks, phobias, brain lesions, jaw pain, anxiousness, scar tissue, Candida overgrowth, and back pain.
As you eat berries, reflect on the abundance of berries available year round and how they grow on bushes low to the ground so we can easily pick them and share in them with animals also in need of nourishment. The selfless nature of berries help us to also become more generous, kind, and selfless in turn.
Coconut, the second key ingredient in this recipe, has been praised by many for its delicious and healing water and oil extracted from this fleshy fruit, but there are even more benefits you deserve to know! As I share in Life-Changing Foods, coconut intensifies the healing powers of all other life-giving fruits and vegetables it is paired with. For example, if you use coconut water as the liquid base of a green smoothie, the healing properties of all the other fruits and greens in the creamy drink will amplify and provide you with even greater nourishment and fortitude.
Everyone can benefit from starting to sip on coconut water, especially those who have hypoglycemia, diabetes, or any other blood sugar disorder. People with overactive or underactive adrenals, or those who suffer from any brain or neurological disorder will also find great value in adding coconut water into their diet.
Like the water, the coconut meat has a host of beneficial properties. The unique combination of lauric acid and specific antioxidants found in the meat make this an antipathogenic food that destroys any pathogen it encounters when moving from the stomach into the intestinal tract. If you or a loved one suffers from postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS), depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, Asperger’s syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, or Lyme disease, try to begin incorporating coconut into the diet. Some symptoms that can be supported by the inclusion of coconut include memory loss, all neurological symptoms, blurry eyes, high blood pressure, and chemical sensitivities.
If you have trouble sleeping during a full moon, try adding coconut to your evening meal or snack. Your neurotransmitters and electrical impulses will be bolstered by the coconut’s mineral salts and electrolytes and will prevent you from being as affected by the delicate gravitational pull of a full moon. Coconut is highly beneficial for anyone who struggles with narcissistic tendencies. It aids in helping someone release an overpowering singular focus on his or her own wants and needs and allows the needs and beliefs of others to come into view as well. Find excitement in knowing that consuming this fruit helps you grow closer to recognizing who you are on a foundational level! You can learn more unknown facts like these about coconut and more than 50 other healing foods in Life-Changing Foods.
Berries and Cream
Beautiful and enticing, these berries-and-cream bowls are perfect for brunch, entertaining, or dessert. The coconut milk whips into a cloud of light, fluffy whipped cream, and the hint of ginger and lemon zest completes the dish. Enjoy impressing those you love with these beautiful berry bowls.
1 cup blueberries
1 cup blackberries
1 cup raspberries
1 cup strawberries
2 x 13.5-ounce cans full-fat coconut milk, refrigerated
¼ teaspoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Lemon juice (from about ¼ lemon)
1 2-inch piece vanilla bean pod, split lengthwise
1 teaspoon lemon zest
4 leaves fresh mint, minced
Rinse the berries, mix them together, and divide them evenly into 2 bowls. Open the cans of coconut milk, being careful not to shake them. Coconut milk naturally separates in the can, leaving a thick, heavy layer on top. Scoop out the solid cream from each can and place it in a small mixing bowl. (You will need ½ cup of cream.) Discard the thin liquid that remains. Using a fork, whisk together the coconut cream, ginger, maple syrup, lemon juice, and the scraped seeds from the vanilla bean pod. Whisk until the mixture is well combined and smooth. Scoop a generous dollop of cream over the berries in each bowl. Top with the lemon zest and mint.

Did you know that the aromatic herbs we usually use to add flavor to our meals are some of the most healing foods available to us?
Oregano, thyme, rosemary, and sage are powerful disease-fighting foods that each have a different healing focus. When you eat all of them regularly, their individual properties complement each other, enhancing their ability to defend against pathogens in the body, like Epstein-Barr virus, shingles, streptococcus, E. Coli, H. pylori, C. difficile, MRSA, and fungus.
In my new book Life-Changing Foods: Save Yourself And The Ones Your Love With The Hidden Healing Powers of Fruits and Vegetables, I share that aromatic herbs can almost be considered wild foods, even when cultivated. Their nutrient profile is especially robust and important for anyone who is struggling with a chronic illness or symptom. It's a wonderful gift that these foods also taste so good and can make a simple meal into a gourmet masterpiece!
Oregano, thyme, rosemary, and sage together have antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties that can help with hundreds of health conditions and symptoms, including small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), peptic ulcers, strep throat, food allergies, Lyme disease, ear infections, sinusitis, diverticulitis, vertigo, ringworm, eye infections, respiratory infections, rashes, abdominal pain, dizziness, fatigue, blisters, excess mucus, neuralgia, flatulence, itching, nausea, edema, herpes, and gum infections.
Not only do these aromatic herbs offer you and your loved ones support for hundreds of health challenges, they also help to bring calm and peace when you are feeling chronically overstimulated, stressed out, and emotionally overreactive. They also help us to adapt along with the quickly changing world we are living in today, reminding us where we've come from and who we can still become.
Sage, oregano, rosemary, and thyme are also especially beneficial when used raw in salads, dressings, dips, water, juices, smoothies, and other drinks. You can also steep them in hot water to make medicinal teas. Experiment with all the ways you can use these herbs, and most of all, try to keep them all in your diet every week or as often as possible.
Herb Battered Root Vegetable Fries

Last week I introduced you to The Holy Four, which are the four food groups with undiscovered healing powers that I introduced to you in my new book Life-Changing Foods: Save Yourself And The Ones You Love With The Hidden Healing Powers Of Fruits & Vegetables.
These four food groups - Wild Foods, Fruits, Vegetables, and Herbs and Spices - are critical for healing every kind of illness, symptom, or sickness today. We all know fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens are important, but no one knows the real truth about just how greatly they influence health and healing. As I've said before, medical and food science and research have only discovered less than 1% of the miraculous and plentiful healing properties of these foods.
The Holy Four are our best weapons and armor against The Unforgiving Four, which are the four biggest dangers to the health of all of us, and even to our survival. I introduce you to The Unforgiving Four in Life-Changing Foods, and share how they are unknowingly behind almost every illness and symptom you and your loved ones might be experiencing. I know that might seem like a big statement and even unlikely, but it's the truth.
There's a reason over 300 million Americans alone are struggling, or are sick or have a symptom, let alone the billions suffering in other countries. If medical science and research really knew what was causing our struggles, we would also have answers, and people would be getting better. But they're not. They're getting sicker, and it's because we haven't had the information we need to bring about true healing. But now we do because Spirit has given it to me to share with you. There's only one reason I have this gift, and that's for you. Spirit spoke to me at age four and has done so constantly since so I can help you and provide you with the necessary healing information for you and your loved ones to move forward and reclaim your health and lives.
Today I am sharing another sneak peek recipe from Life-Changing Foods, a stunning and healing Papaya Smoothie Bowl. Papaya is one of the most important fruits for anyone who is sick or symptomatic. It's very gentle but powerful in its healing action. It also tastes delicious! If you've tried papaya before and not liked it, it may very well be because it wasn't truly ripe. Papaya is best when it has some give when you gently press on it,
Do you or anyone you know suffer from bloating, gas, stomach aches and cramps, diarrhea, constipation, bacterial infections, SIBO, ulcers, colitis, Crohn's, worms, diverticulitis, or IBS? Papaya is the most important fruit you can eat for stomach and intestinal problems and when enjoyed daily, it can bring about tremendous healing and relief.
Papaya contains more than 500 undiscovered powerful digestive enzymes that have the power to support the pancreas, aid digestion, and heal the walls of the intestinal tract, even preventing scar tissue from forming there. Papaya also has amino acids and enzymes that when combined create undiscovered subcompound phytochemicals that repel viruses.
Papaya is also one of best foods for healthy, glowing skin. It brings youthfulness to the skin, and helps prevent and lessen wrinkles. It's an ideal food for helping to clear up eczema, psoriasis, and acne. It's also a wonderful aid for conditions and diseases, including stagnant and sluggish liver, brain fog, brittle nails, dark under-eye circles, bladder pain, fatigue, Hashimoto's, lupus, fibromyalgia, eating disorders, blood disorders, and incontinence.
As I share in Life-Changing Foods, one of my favorite properties of the humble papaya is that it brings light to anyone who eats it. Papaya can lift your spirits and help you or a loved one let go of crankiness, frustration, and impatience. That's why I especially love these Papaya Smoothie Bowls as a meal to share with someone you care about, or who's life you want to touch in a positive way. Make these bowls for yourself and others and reap the hidden benefits of these powerful ingredients.
Raspberries, another ingredient in today's recipe, are a delicious treat from nature. Juicy, sweet, tart, and so vibrant, they are a very special food. Raspberries have powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and anti-aging properties making them particularly beneficial for autoimmune disorders, such as arthritis, atherosclerosis, heart disease, scleroderma, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, lupus, and colon, breast, prostate, stomach, and lung cancer.
They also contain a compound called raspberry ketone that has been shown to increase the metabolism of fat cells, making them a great choice if you or a loved one is trying to lose weight. Raspberry ketones can also help to improve insulin balance and blood sugar regulation, making it a great food for type 2 diabetics. Raspberries, like all berries, are an incredible brain food, heart health aid, and support for fertility.
As you eat berries, reflect on the abundance of berries available year round and how they grow on bushes low to the ground so we can easily pick them and share in them with animals also in need of nourishment. The selfless nature of berries help us to also become more generous, kind, and selfless.
Dates are another healing food for your digestive system, so having them with the papaya in this recipe gives you a fantastic digestive health recipe. They're also one of the best brain foods, like berries. Dates are a truly medicinal food, so a few dates can go a long way. In fact, in Life-Changing Foods I recommend you literally take a date with you a long way - when you're traveling. They will help bring you good luck in finding the food you need when you travel.
The anti-parasitical, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-cancer, and anti-candida properties of dates make them a key food for the health dangers we face today from The Unforgiving Four. Include more dates if you or a loved one has diabetes, adrenal fatigue, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), rosacea, obesity, cardiovascular disease, earache, urinary urgency, tremors, panic attacks, tics, and confusion. Dates are another amazing food to help bring more selflessness to you or a loved one, while simultaneously helping to strengthen your purpose in this life.
These are just a few of the benefits of three of the ingredients in today's Papaya Smoothie Bowl recipe. In Life-Changing Foods, I reveal the benefits of the other ingredients in the more than 50 healing foods I share. You will learn how to protect yourself and your family and friends physically, emotionally, and spiritually with the hidden healing powers of The Holy Four. I promise you don't want to miss out on learning this information that's never been shared or discovered before.
If you haven't already pre-ordered your copy of Life-Changing Foods: Save Yourself And The Ones You Love With The Hidden Healing Powers Of Fruits And Vegetables, please consider doing so now because it will very likely go out of stock soon after release. This is what happened many times with my book Medical Medium and I don't want anyone else to be frustrated. I know that when you open the book, you won't be disappointed.
There's so much healing information inside that can help change people's health and lives. I deeply care from the bottom of my heart about you and your loved ones, and I want us all to move forward and heal together. Know that I'm with you and I stand behind you. Thank you again for being here and learning this critical information. I am truly honored to be of service and I'm so proud of you.

This creamy, decadent sweet potato recipe is just as comforting as it is delicious. Baked sweet potato is blended with homemade cashew cream and raisins, topped with rosemary and pecans, and baked a few minutes more until the edges turn golden brown and piping hot! These are perfect for evenings around the table with family or friends.
Sweet potatoes are an incredibly nutritious food that are packed with antioxidants like beta carotene, vitamins C, E & D, and minerals such as manganese and iron. They are also high in potassium which helps to lower blood pressure by removing excess sodium and regulating fluid balance in the body. Sweet potatoes are an excellent anti-stress food and are known to help relax muscles, steady nerves, and balance cognitive function.
They are also one of the best anti-cancer foods and can particularly help to prevent breast, colon, lung, skin, and oral cancers. Sweet potatoes are known for being easy to digest and are very good for ulcers, inflamed colons, digestive disorders, and constipation. They contain compounds called phytochelatins that can bind to heavy metals such as lead, mercury, copper, & cadmium and safely remove them through the body.
1 cup cashews
1 garlic clove
1/2 medjool date
1 lemon, juice
6 small sweet potatoes (or 3 large)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup pecans
1 tsp rosemary leaves
Pre-heat oven to 400°. Prick sweet potatoes with a fork. Place directly into the oven and bake until cooked through when pierced with a fork, between 30 to 50 minutes. Unwrap and cool until easily handled.
In a food processor, process 1/4C pecans, 1 tsp rosemary leaves and ½ tsp sea salt until finely combined. Set aside.
To make the cashew cream, blend cashews, garlic, date, and the juice of ½ lemon until smooth. Add water as needed to blend, approximately ½ cup.
When sweet potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut off the top ¼ of each and gently scrape out most but not all of the flesh. This should yield 3C to 4C of sweet potato. Place this into the food processor with ½ C of the cashew cream and the juice of ½ lemon. Process until smooth. Stir in ½ C raisins and spoon into each of the sweet potato skins. Top with the rosemary pecan crumble and bake for 15 min until the pecans turn golden brown. Serve and enjoy!

Grapes are one of the most medicinal fruits in existence. They are powerful liver and kidney cleansers, much more so than many cleansing remedies that are popular today. Grape skins hold unknown micronutrients that expel parasites, mold, and other unproductive fungus from the intestinal tract. Antioxidants within grapes can also help fight and prevent most types of cancer. One of my favorite things about grapes aside from their delicious flavor is how they help to combat The Unforgiving Four, which are behind most illnesses today. Did you know that grapes can help with mold exposure, hypertension, macular degeneration, kidney stones, diabetes, hepatitis C, depression, anemia, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, herpes simplex 1 and 2, H. pylori infection, brain fog, fatigue, hair loss, brittle nails, blurry eyes, PMS, and more? Then there’s the emotional and spiritual benefits of grapes, which are truly special. If you are feeling lonely or isolated, or emotionally broken or beaten down, grapes will help lighten your heart, lift your spirits, and even help you to find people to connect with in life who value and see you.
Coconut water is the second ingredient in this recipe and one of my favorite beverages. It’s the perfect fuel for those of us who are constantly busy and requiring a lot of fuel to the brain and central nervous system. If you’re someone who gets the urge for a sugar fix in the afternoon or anytime, make coconut water your friend. It will get the glucose and mineral salts you need to your bloodstream and brain so you can recharge and carry on. Coconut and coconut water can help Addison’s disease, Raynaud’s syndrome, diabetes, bipolar disorder, anxiety, insomnia, Epstein-Barr virus, thyroid nodules, UTI’s, Lyme disease, SIBO, memory loss, weight gain, tingles and numbness, back pain, chronic dehydration, headaches, and high blood pressure to name just a few.
Coconut water also has the magical ability to enhance the healing power of anything it touches, so every time you have it with your celery sticks and apple slices, or in a smoothie with wild blueberries and spinach, you are essentially getting the greatest value you can from your foods. For those wondering, it’s still best to have certain foods alone for their specific healing purpose though, like celery juice and cucumber juice. These are the kinds of details I share with you in Life-Changing Foods. Just one shift and change with the more than 50 foods you’ll learn about in the book can help you experience greater healing benefits. Coconut water is also the perfect drink to offer to someone in your life who is a little too self-focused. Coconut can open the emotional channel for someone to better consider the needs and values of others alongside their own.
Easy to make and incredibly delicious, this ice-cold slushy is the perfect way to make use of grapes and coconut water when you have them. You’ll want to come back to this recipe over and over again.
4 cups frozen* grapes
3 cups coconut water
Blend the frozen grapes and the coconut water in a blender until well combined. Serve and enjoy.
*Fresh grapes may be used in place of frozen if you don’t want an icy drink. Reduce the coconut water to 2 cups.
Makes 2 servings

Have you ever felt beaten down, defeated, or even crushed by chronic illness or pain, or from an emotional hardship like the loss, betrayal, or illness of a loved one? Or maybe you no longer trust in your body's ability to heal because you've been told that your body is attacking itself, when the truth is it isn't. It never has and it never will.
We all go through challenging times in our lives, but some can be so difficult to bear or long lasting that we start to believe things won't ever change or improve. This is particularly common for so many who have suffered from chronic illness for years, even decades. Maybe you or someone you know is struggling, even if it has only been for a few months or a year. You can start to forget what it's like to feel well, and struggling through each day can make you question if you'll ever heal and get your life back.
Perhaps you're someone who has a symptom or illness that isn't obvious to the people around you, so they think you're fine, and that it's just in your head. But you know you don't feel well and you feel alone in your pain. Or maybe you haven't been physically ill, but you've gone through emotional blows that have left you reeling and wondering if you'll ever feel happy again. The idea of being fully healthy and happy again can seem like a fantasy reserved for the people you see jogging, laughing, and smiling with their friends and family.
I hear from people who are having these experiences almost every day. It's heartbreaking that so many people are struggling, and losing hope and faith that they can heal. But there is a truth you can hold onto during the tough times, and that's what I want to share with you today and in my new book Life-Changing Foods: Save Yourself And The Ones You Love With The Hidden Healing Powers Of Fruits And Vegetables.
When I was going through the hardest times of my life, Spirit would always tell me to remember that all storms pass. Nothing stays the same, and all things change.The sun will come out again and blue skies will replace the grey, you just have to hang in there until they do. This might seem like a simple concept, but it doesn't detract from its truth or the power it has to help you through the dark times.
I personally have gripped on to this wisdom from Spirit many times to endure the storms in my life, and I wanted to share it with you today so that you and your loved ones can hold onto it too. Remembering that everything changes and all things will pass helps build up your spirit so you can persevere through the hard times knowing there is change ahead. When you hold this truth close, it helps to speed up your healing process.
The Benefits of Time Traveling
There is a popular trend today to focus on the present moment. The concept suggests that focusing on what's happening right now allows us to not dwell on the past, which we can't change, or the future, which is far away and diverts our attention from what's in front of us right now. The idea behind this movement is that by being present, we can prevent feeling miserable about what's already happened in our lives or doesn't exist yet, and we can be grateful for what we have in this very moment. This is a powerful, positive, and mindful practice.
Focusing on the present moment can be a wonderful strategy for someone who is healthy and happy, but is busy or overwhelmed with work, or not taking enough time out to appreciate what really matters in their life. It can help to ground them and calm their mind as a form of meditation. But if you're someone who presently is suffering or has a chronic illness, symptom, or pain, or you're going through a hard time emotionally or in any other way, you don't always have to be in the present moment. In fact for many, the present moment is the last place you want to be. This may surprise you, but Spirit taught me that instead it's typically better to think of the past or future.
If you or a loved one is struggling with a physical or emotional illness or symptom currently, you have to look into the past. Think back to a time when you did feel good, before you experienced illness, struggles, or trials. Or if you've always had hardships, is there a time in the past when it all felt a bit easier? That's where you need to take your mind and thoughts to.
Think about how you felt, what you were doing and enjoying, the places you were in, the beautiful moments you experienced. Thinking back to happier and healthier times in the past connects you with the feelings you had then, and reminds your spirit and soul that the same health and happiness you had back then is still within you now. It reminds you that it's possible to feel good again and that healing isn't that far away.
Remembering that all storms pass, It's also important to think about the future. You can heal and feel happy and healthy again, so plan for the good times ahead in your future. What do you look forward to? Where do you see yourself in the future? Imagine how you will feel when you're healed or have come out of this storm, rising out of the ashes, and you're doing the things you've been wanting to. Keep your dreams alive by spending time planning for your future, because the sun will come out again.
Celebrate Your Progress
If you've already been taking some steps for healing or easing a stressful situation, like including more fruits, drinking celery juice, watching the sunset, or praying to the Angels, have you noticed any little changes, even if they're not consistent yet? Every little bit of progress we make counts, and it's critical when we are in a storm to hold onto every little improvement, win, or relief we experience.
Healing isn't always a linear process, so don't be discouraged if it seems like there's some setbacks. Often it's three steps forward, two steps back, so there may be times when it can feel like we aren't making progress, but in reality we are. Healing can also happen in increments where a lot of progress could be made one month and then small amounts of progress the next month.
But if we really pay attention, we may notice that we did have a better day, or headaches come less frequently, or we have a little more energy. When you notice little shifts, hold onto them as a reminder that health and happiness is possible, and all storms pass.
The Resurrection Food
Wild blueberries are the true resurrection food, which is why I discuss the true miraculous healing powers they have, which are unknown by medical science and research, in my book Life-Changing Foods. If you are struggling and wanting assistance to rise out of the ashes, eat these phenomenal berries as often as possible. Wild blueberries have survived in the acidic soil and challenging winters in the northern climate for many thousands of years and those natural challenges make them special, just like your challenges make you special.
Their ability to adapt to harsh environments gives them enormous physical and spiritual strength, which you also benefit from when you consume them. Their adaptogenic nutrients can help you adapt to the challenges and stress you face, and can help bring you back to life when all seems lost.
Storms Make You Stronger
I know it's miserable going through emotional hardships and having illnesses and symptoms, even if it's just a seemingly small symptom for a short time. I've been intimately aware of the struggles of every person I have encountered since I was four years old, and I have nothing but compassion for anyone who is experiencing hardship. One thing that happens when we go through struggles is that we become stronger even if it doesn't feel that way at the time.
We learn to adapt, survive, and draw on parts of ourselves we otherwise wouldn't have had to. Many of us who go through chronic illness or hardships also choose to help others who are struggling by offering support and compassion in their tough times, which is a special gift. If you have gone through trials in this life, or still are, know it's because you are a special person with great purpose here. Remembering this truth about who you are can also help you ride out the storms until they pass.
You Are Not Alone
We often feel isolated and alone in our pain when we are going through a hard time. But no matter where you are or how you feel, please know that you're not alone. In my new book Life-Changing Foods, I share the many ways we are being provided for so we can navigate through the challenges we face. I also share the truth about healing and the medicine in food that still hasn't been discovered by medical science and research that can help you turn your life around emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
This information is so essential to know because it not only gives you the tools to move through the storms we face; it also helps to restore our faith and compassion. Spirit and I put countless hours into writing this book for you and your loved ones so we can all start to heal and thrive again. With the right information and tools we can rise out of the ashes together.
When I was given the gift to hear Spirit and see inside others, I knew right away that it was given to me so I could provide information that can help save lives. My gift has never been for me. It's for others, for you and your loved ones, and that's what matters most. I was taught by Spirit to be an independent looking out for people, not interests. I was taught to watch your back to help you get through the fog of sickness.
I deeply care from the bottom of my heart about you and your loved ones, and I want us all to move forward and heal together. Know that I'm with you and I stand behind you. Thank you again for being here and learning this critical information. I am truly honored to be of service and I'm so proud of you.
