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!

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.
