Purging The Green-Eyed Gremlin

green-eyed gremlin

That little green-eyed gremlin has been at me for years. Maybe it wasn't always around – or maybe I just didn't notice it much – I think it might have just been more cleverly disguised when I was a kid.

But as I've lived, from birthing babes to managing menopause to coveting the clarity of the crone, I've noticed that gremlin lurking, sometimes popping right into my mind, scaring the sweet bejesus right out of me.

I've fed into it, allowed it to have its way with me, and now that gremlin resides within me.

On Healthy Eating: Battling the Comfort Food War Within


I just found an unopened box of Bulgar Wheat that has been in my cupboard for nigh on seven years. In fact, I would venture to say if I had room in my kitchen for every health food item I've purchased but never used, I would be making Top Ramen in a room the size of the Duomo in Milan.

Can I Eat A Mostly Raw, Somewhat Organic, Vegan Diet - On The Cheap?

Vegan Diet Organic Cheap

Queen Turnips,

Why am I so driven to try alternative therapies? Because I’m a health junkie and a writer. I want first-hand experience, not recycled articles with agendas. In 2008, I had a little downtime so I decided to give oxygen treatments a whirl. I had been reading about their benefits for years, saved some money from my speaking gigs, and dove head first into goodness and madness.

My readers have always commented on the cost of a healthy lifestyle.

These complaints have stuck in my mind. Forget my out-of-the-box treatments; the main problem is the raw, vegan, organic diet, and all the goodie-boosters that go with it. It’s expensive! Some folks get really miffed at me for promoting this way of living – if they can’t afford it then I shouldn’t write about it. Now that’s not fair or constructive. My point is to address problems and find solutions. But clearly I have more work to do.
