Crock Pot Potato Soup

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday

With Fall here I’m beginning to have cravings for soups and all things warm and comforting. So today I wanted to share a very easy Crock Pot Potato Soup. So let’s get right into it.


6 large organic potatoes cubed
5 oz. of organic shredded carrots
8  organic stalks celery, chopped
2  organic onions chopped
1 tsp of garlic powder and black pepper                                                                                                     2 tsp pink Himalayan salt
1/2 tsp of organic fennel seasoning                                                                                                             2 Tbsp of my DIY seasoning mix here
3.5 Cups of organic low sodium chicken stock
2 Cups of water
1 Cup of Original organic Unsweetened Almond Milk



Combine all ingredients except carrots in large crock pot stir to combine. Cook on low for 8 – 10 hours, or high 6-7 hours. When you have 1 hour remaining add carrots. Stir to evenly distribute. You can serve topped with shredded cheese, green onion, and turkey bacon. Or enjoy as is. As you can see I had to have the toppings!


Now that Fall has arrived……what foods are you craving?

I hope you will give this recipe a try and enjoy it as much and my family and I do.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.

Is your doctor really interested in getting you well???

All About Healthy Choices


As a patient, what is your intention when visiting your doctor? Do you want a diagnosis?Do you want to know what caused your condition? Do you want to know what measures you need to take to avoid the condition from returning or advancing? Finally, do you want a prescription? √√√ If you are not offered a prescription, do you feel your money was wasted on the visit?

If you said YES to wanting the prescription, what makes you think this adds value to the visit? Are you more interested in treating SYMPTOMS or CORRECTING UNDERLYING PROBLEMS? Do you believe most prescription medications FIX chronic problems or help MAINTAIN them? Do you care if the doctor intends to keep you on prescription medications for the rest of your life?

The reason I ask all these questions is because I have observed (as a physician) the average consumer’s…

I frequently write about the importance of SELF VALUE. Some of us believe this concept is a “given.” This couldn’t be further from the truth. In this article, I’ll attempt to prove it!

Parameters need to be established to define SELF VALUE. I will use the following:

  1. Involvement

  2. Challenge vs Acceptance

  3. Actions

INVOLVEMENT: A person possessing a high degree of SELF VALUE is more aware of their surroundings and the impact it may have on life. For example, if a newspaper reported a story about local water or food contamination, this type of person might begin a “google” search on the topic to see if the story had merit. If it was determined to be a legitimate potential problem, the person with SELF VALUE would proceed to the next parameter.

CHALLENGE vs ACCEPTANCE: They would investigate to see if this contamination posed a threat; and if…

Vegan Garlic & Herb Pull Apart Bread

Hello everyone and welcome to……..


Here’s how this bread came about. My brother called last minute and said that he and his family would be coming into town. Great, I am always happy to see my family. The first thing that goes through my mind is what am I going to cook.  With such short notice, I need dishes that will be quick and easy oh and large portions because my brother is a true foodie!

One thing I love showing my brother through food is that you can have the food you love with the nutrition, your body needs and deserves without sacrificing taste.

Since they would be arriving around dinner time I decided to go with my One Skillet Lasagna and nice big salad and this pull apart bread. A nice family style meal where everyone can serve themselves, eat and enjoy each others company.

Here’s what you’ll need:

3 C. Organic Unbleached All Purpose Flour
1 1/4 C. warm water
2  1/4 tsp. active dry yeast
1 tsp. organic cane sugar
1 tsp. Himalayan Pink salt
2 tsp organic garlic powder
1 tsp organic onion powder
1 tbsp organic Italian seasoning
3 TBS. organic extra virgin olive oil


  1. In a large bowl or stand mixer with dough, attachment add your flour, then add your yeast on one side of the bowl and your salt on the other side of the bowl and mix dry ingredients together. ( a tip adding salt directly on top of the yeast deactivates it which is why these two ingredients are added on opposing sides before mixing the dry ingredients together.)
  2. Next add your garlic, onion powder, and Italian Seasoning and mix.
  3. Add your sugar to the water and mix, pour it into your dry ingredients followed by the olive oil mix until your dough is shiny and smooth. Takes about 6-8 minutes.
  4. When your dough is ready, rub the dough and bowl with olive oil. This will help it rise in the bowl.
  5. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rise at room temperature until doubled, 1 ½ -2 hours
  6. Once the dough has risen, gently remove the dough from the bowl knocking out the air.
  7. Using a bench scraper or knife, cut the dough into medium and small sized pieces.
  8. Grease a 10 inch Bundt pan or cake tin with olive oil. Fill the pan with the dough pieces.
  9. Cover the pan tightly with plastic wrap and let the bread rise for 45 minutes or until puffy and they have risen up to the top of the pan.
  10. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown.Cool the pull apart bread in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out on a platter or large plate and allow to cool slightly about 10 minutes. (* for a short cut you can use store bought pizza dough…..I just love making my own from scratch!)

I hope that you will enjoy this recipe as much as my family and I do.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.

Positive-or-Negative smaller

Attitude is an interesting word that has a profound impact on our emotional well being. It can work in our favor or impede our ability to grow and develop. Surprisingly, many people with “good” attitudes often possess an over abundance. Conversely, many people with “bad” attitudes suffer from such significant positive emotion deficit, their attitudes create great self harm.


When it comes to good health, those with GOOD ATTITUDES do what is necessary to achieve the quality of life they choose. They do not place stipulations and terms to achieve their goals. They recognize that life has pleasurable and less than pleasurable experiences; both of which need to be completed in order to attain the goal(s). They don’t focus on or complain about life’s “less than pleasurable tasks or experiences.” They realize and accept their situation and pursue it as positively as possible to make the…
