Here's What Women Are Saying

On Nutrition

Peg - you have truly been like my guardian angel! I am amazed at your continued patience with me over the course of this journey. Your children and grandkids are so very lucky to have you !!!  Thank you for everything!   

Your six month program is great!  I've managed to make many lasting positive changes.  There were bad habits that I would never thought I would break.  There were harmful habits that I didn't even realize I was doing.  Thanks for helping me draw attention to areas I needed to focus on, and remove the obsessions that weren't helping me. I appreciated that the entire program was at my pace - and that I never felt pressured or guilty (as I have experienced in other programs.)....

Spring Cleanse

Are you someone who is  intrigued by the idea of cleansing your body?  For those of you who know me, you know that I am not one to support quick fixes when it comes to nutrition, so I get concerned when I see drastic cleanses and techniques that can be potentially dangerous.  

That said, there are specific times of year when some form of re-setting ourselves and our surroundings can be particularly useful.

Where Do You Eat?

Did you ever think that where you eat could have the most impact on how much you eat, how you digest, and how you metabolize?  If you haven’t, here’s why you might want to consider it.  The manner in which you eat, and I’m focusing on place, directly affects all of this. 

Need a Speaker on Health and Wellness?

If your organization is loking for a speaker on the topics of nutrition and lifestyle, please contact me to arrange a time and a topic.

The format ranges from small and conversational to a more formal presentation to a large group. 

Below is a list of the venues in which I have spoken on the topics of health and wellness, including whole foods based nutrition, stress management, lifestyle balance and healthy aging. A detailed breakout of each of the topics will be provided upon request.

Are You a Sugar Addict?

When was the last time you sat down with someone and REALLY talked about your health and your diet?  I’m not talking about your weight, or your BMI, or the number of calories you eat every day. I’m talking about the actual food you eat and how it might affect your health and your energy.

A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes the protein gluten.

Detoxify Your Diet and Your Life!

Posted by peg on Mon, 09/23/2013 - 1:09pm

My detox program does not involve lots of supplements, fasting, purging, or anything of that nature. It's designed to re-set your body through a four week experience of eliminating foods that cause inflammation and practicing various forms of self care. 

Whenever you undertake a new approach to your nutrition and self-care, look at it as something you are receiving, not something you are taking away from yourself. When you view it in this way, you will see the gifts you are giving yourself. 

New Recording: Beyond Cancer

I am excited to tell you that the recording Beyond Cancer: Healing Meditations that has been two years in the making is complete.  It came about from the many wonderful people I’ve worked with through the years who have had cancer and expressed a need for a tool that might help them once their treatments were complete.
