Sweet Potato Ginger Carrot Stew

This healthy stew is full of flavor and very filling. I made it thinking of a hot breakfast but it would be great for any meal. The humble star of this stew is the highly medicinal burdock root. IMG_4069It is very mild in flavor and full of medicinal benefits.


  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons corn meal
  • Sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 2 carrots peeled and diced
  • Burdock root, thinly sliced
  • Ginger, crushed through garlic press
  • Slice of lemon
  • Salt
  • Shredded cabbage

Combine all ingredients except cabbage and simmer over low heat for 30-45 minutes, until veggies are cooked and stew is desired thickness. Remove lemon slice. Top with shredded cabbage and serve.


Why I Love Being Gluten-Free

I have been gluten-free for about five years now and love it. Here’s why:

I’m more physically, emotionally and spiritually healthy than ever.

  • For most of my life I thought I just had a “Jewish stomach”. Yes this is an actual thing–even alluded to by Jewish gangster Arnold Rothstein’s wife in an episode of Boardwalk Empire. My lifelong digestive problems cleared up immediately upon quitting gluten.
  • I no longer needed medication to treat depression, anxiety or panic attacks. I had no idea my psychological problems were due to my diet! I feel naturally happy and calm.
  • In the process of clearing gluten from my system I was able to tap into my clairvoyant abilities.  Using my intuitive abilities to help others become more healthy in every way is my life’s work.

My family eats better.

  • After going gf I joined a Community Supported Agriculture program–which means we get a box of fruits and veggies from a local farm each week. We all eat a lot more vegetables now.

I have less choices.

  • Choice can be stressful–it’s just easier for me to narrow down my food options.

I never have to worry about watching my weight.

  • Enough said!

I have a healthier relationship with food.

  • I eat for nutrition, not to satisfy emotional needs and I truly appreciate my food.  I don’t think about what is missing, rather I am so grateful to be so healthy.

I can help other people.

  • Many years ago my Intuitive told me I was intolerant to gluten. It amazed me that she could pick up on this over the phone having never meeting me and knowing nothing about me. Years later I am able to do the same for other people. It was well worth all the pain and suffering I went through to be able to help others.

Now I know having less can make me and my family more abundant!

Ginger Kale Smoothie

Surprisingly tasty and great for a mini-cleanse.


  • 3 Kale leaves shredded, stems removed
  • Ginger chunk, skin removed
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/4 cup frozen mango

  • 3/4 ice cubes

Put all ingredients in blender and puree until smooth.

Tips: You can either chop ginger or run it through a garlic press. You may need to add some water to thin it out to desired consistency.
