Of all the “rabbit holes” to vortex into, I am fascinated in the rabbit hole of the Dr. Sebi approach to healing dis-eases with specific herbs and nutrition. As a pathologist, herbalist, biochemist, naturalist, and “Celebrity Healer” … his methodology for eradicating illnesses continues to yield positive results for many individuals with common ailments in Western society (cancer, heart disease, arthritis, digestive ailments….). His lifestyle recommendations prove especially beneficial to those of African or Caribbean ancestral roots. (“African BioMineral Health”).

I hope you will try it, and would love to hear how it turned out for you! (more…)

This recipe below is a perfect example of the proper ratio! (more…)
Here goes again. Another dessert recipe.

It’s a terrible and frustrating cycle… I know because I was in it for enough time to be sick and tired of it. Enjoying sweet foods that are complementary to longterm healthy lifestyle goals is surprisingly easy to do however…. those are the kinds of recipes that I tend to whip up in my kitchen. (more…)
These nuggets of deliciousness contain that gooey and dense texture. I grew up eating these, and still have the traditional recipe my mom used.
