About the Author
I no longer have an autoimmune disease and have been cancer free for more than ten years. I attribute much of this restorative success to the body's ability to self-regulate, my positive attitude and commitment to making specific lifestyle changes, being disciplined in the process and continuously learning/studying. I respect and understand that a one size fits all approach to health or medicine is the wrong approach and can leave many harmed. I am currently a student enrolled in a holistic nutrition program and anticipate successfully completing the program and becoming a Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant (C.H.N.C) in Alberta, soon. In good health, Mélanie.
A delicious vegan and raw cheesecake to delight the whole family (and your guests). Simple to make and wonderful to serve.
The Hot Cross Bun is a baked tradition of Easter but where do they come from? Get the recipe and make some for brunch yourself.
For St.Patrick’s Day today we have a delicious and healthy version of a Traditional Irish Bakewell Tart.
Sweet, Healthy, and still Traditional? You can’t get more lucky than that!
