Hi I am Katie

I believe the food choices we make are extremely important, not only because food is essential for the foundation of our health, but it also connects us to our emotions, creativity, intuition, wisdom, people, animals, nature and the universe.  Food can be a powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.  Its effect can impact more than just our physical body because we are all multi-faceted beings.  [read more]

Food Confusion – Why I teach a DIetary Reset

Remember the crazy Food Pyramid we grew up with?  This is just one of the reasons everyone is confused and conflicted about what to eat?

  • Should we be gluten free?
  • Should we eat coconut oil because we’ve heard it’s good for our brain?  Or does it cause it heart disease like the American Heart Association tells us?
  • Should we drink 3 glasses of milk a day like our government advises or should we avoid all dairy because it causes autoimmune disease and acne?
  • Should we be vegan and eat like a mountain goat or Paleo and eat like a caveman? 
I’ve never thought of myself as an activist until I graduated from Hawthorn University as a certified nutrition consultant in 2012.  I learned how we’ve been duped by the FDA (food and drug administration) who make up our dietary guidelines (think food pyramid and myplate.gov) and government policies that subsidize agricultural crops.
 
Government policies subsidize commodity crops like corn, wheat and soy (mostly GMO) and turn these foods into high fructose corn syrup, white flour and refined soybean oil.   These foods are the building blocks of sugar sweetened drinks and processed foods – definitely NOT what we should be eating for our health.
No wonder we’re all mixed up.Well I’ve got news for our government and the Food Industry:
Did anyone tell them Food is Medicine?

Thai Chicken and Shaved Brussels Sprouts

I love Brussels Sprouts!
I was curious to find out  if I liked them as much shredded and stir-fried as when roasted.   The Asian Sause is amazing and I use it in other recipes too. This recipe will not disappoint!
