Profile Information

About Me: (at least a couple of sentences; ex: family, interests, hobbies, favorite quote, personal mission statement, etc
I am a Holistic Registered Nurse & Certified Colon Hydrotherapist with an emphasis in Diet & Nutrition. I am a Certified Raw Food Chef as well as a Certified Health Minister for Hallelujah Acres. I had personal health issues with my thyroid that directed my path to greater nutrition over the past several years . I have been interested in the Wellness Industry not only for myself, but for others as well for the past 30 years. I worked in a conventional hospital for years and did not find (AT ALL) a true path to wellness being sought by administration, doctors, nurses, or patients alike. I am presently pursuing a certification for Dr. Campbell's Plant Based Diet program through Cornell University.

Why Cinnamon is a must for Diabetics and those with high Cholesterol and why, though I have neither, use it in my green smoothies daily

Posted on October 10, 2011 at 9:07pm 10 Comments

This is an incredible research on why I consider Cinnamon a must for Diabetics and those with high Cholesterol.  I have been utilizing this in my green smoothies to prevent the spike in blood sugar because I use at least 3 bananas in a full VitaMix carafe.  I am not diabetic, but I do believe that our bodies were never intended to have that much sugar that rapidly, thus my utilization of Cinnamon.  More is not always better...please see article for suggested amounts to use.

I hope you…


Important 9/11 'MeetUp' Story

Posted on September 10, 2011 at 2:00pm 1 Comment

I don't know if you belong to a 'meet-up' but I do and it is a beautiful thing!  We have a local

RawFood meet up and we all thrive on each others recipes and fellowship.  If you don't belong

to a meet-up or don't know if one exists in your area, may I suggest you start one.  The following

was taken from an email I received from Scott Heiferman, Co-Founder & CEO, Meetup. 

What an inspiration!

The Vault for some of us, a safe haven~but I'd like to share this out here in the mansion as well!

Posted on September 5, 2011 at 9:00am 5 Comments

The vault, is another room of this mansion, which is an 11-week private safe haven for some of us here at RFR.  However, some of us have a 'word' and it needs to be shared with the folks out in the mansion too! 

I love to read your stories.....encouragements for my life.

Penni posted a video over in the vault about Beginning Week 10 of our initiative in relationship to…

Hello Rita:  You are in my prayers and I truly feel your love for all God's children.  Such a blessing for you to hear from your two special young men.  May God protect them and bring them back to visit you soon with lots or love & hugs.  The children you now nurture and to cross your future paths are blessed to have you in their lives.  God bless you & yours, Hugs, Mae

Choose not to let your circumstances define who you are, let them be your stepping stones to triumph and victory.  Optimism is a personal choice.  Each day is an opportunity to pursue your dreams.  You have so much to offer the world.  People are waiting to be blessed by your talent and expertise.  So don’t give up, keep moving forward in God’s divine plan for your life. ~Sheila Godfrey Edwards

The only things you can control are:

how you think and speak,what you do:  what you eat, what you drink, when you move your body, when you sleep. 

Master these simple things positively and you will be amazed at the changes that will come into your life!  Let this be your year to SHINE!!
