Not only is this warm drink delicious, it is also soothing for sore throats and stuffy noses. Ginger and turmeric are anti-inflammatory and antiseptic. The black pepper boosts those properties. You can make this with any fresh nut-milk you have on hand or even store bought coconut milk. Make sure you heat it gently to not curdle the milk. Non-Dairy Turmeric Milk 2 cups homemade almond, coconut milk, or any non-dairy milk of your choice 1 teaspoon turmeric 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1″ piece of ginger sliced raw honey to sweeten, if desired Combine all ingredients and whisk on low heat until milk is warm but not too hot. Serve immediately.

My girlfriend on the East Coast just called and asked for a recipe for Pumpkin soup. She always calls me when she wants to make something yummy and healthy. When we were little girls growing up, she used to come over to my house after school and watch me play in the kitchen. I was a latch-key kid and was in charge of making dinner for my brother and my mom. And one of my specialties was soup. So, I took one of my favorite soups and played with it a bit here is the recipe I gave her: Coconut Curried Pumpkin Soup Ingredients 3 cups fresh pumpkin, diced 1 yellow onion, diced 2 tablespoons ghee 1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder 2 teaspoons sea salt 1 quart organic vegetable broth, either — • Store bought (e.g., Pacific Natural Foods)• Homemade • 1 quart water and organic vegetable bouillon cube 2 cups … Read More

The Benefits of Meditation

Shawn KippDiana Says...., Diana's BlogLeave a Comment

Is focus an issue? Do you find that you can’t fall asleep at night? Do you get bouts of Anxiety? Don’t worry, you’re not alone…. A busy mind is one of the biggest causes of dis-ease and weight gain. It’s time for you to Relax… Relaxation … Who has time for that? What does that mean? Does that mean watching a movie on television? Does it mean listening to live music at a local bar? (Both of which are entertaining and stimulating — they take us away from ourselves and fill us with euphoria — but I am talking about going into ourselves.) It means making time for YOU. Quiet time. Mindless relaxation. Don’t worry if this sounds like an impossible task. I remember when I felt that way. There are so many ways to get that mindless time. Some call it meditation, and I know that’s a scary word … Read More

FAQs about Digestive Bitters

Shawn KippDiana Says...., Diana's BlogLeave a Comment

I am so impressed by how people are evolving in knowledge and interest around their health. As the student gets smarter, so must the teacher. And you guys test me every day. I love it. But sometimes it’s better to take some questions to the experts, so I have asked some of the most frequently asked questions about Digestive Bitters to the genius who formulated them. (See answers below.) Vitality Herbs & Clay: There are so many great questions about health, and the smarter and more educated people are, the healthier they become. So, please allow me to educate you a bit more on Diana Stobo’s Digestive Bitters.

Make sure you read the whole thing because it will change you in the most positive ways. I want to empower you so that you are no longer waiting for someone to rescue you from your FAT.  You get to be your own champion here, you get to finesse your life in ways that you choose.
