Eat this for: This cranberry sauce is not only delicious (I eat it by the spoonful) but good for you too. It’s free of refined sugar and packed with antioxidants, vitamins C, A and beta carotene (great skin vitamins). Cranberries are also anti-inflammatory and boost the immune system as they have a natural antibiotic effect on the body.
Where do you find recipe inspiration? I like to make healthy versions of my favorite foods, so I’ll usually google vegan and gluten free versions of what I want to eat and modify it depending on the ingredients. Instagram, Pinterest and YouTube are also great for discovering new recipes.

Dream dinner guest to cook for: Esther Hicks. She would be fun, plus I have endless questions for her.
Favorite skin food ingredient and why: An abundance of raw fruits and vegetables because of the living water and light contained within them. Every time we eat fresh fruits and vegetables, we are eating sunlight. Our cells absorb the light, and it radiates throughout our bodies, emitting its energy and life force. We are also taking in living, healing water that hydrates our cells better than any glass of water can.
I also don’t go a day without wild blueberries as they have more antioxidants than any other food and they draw toxins out of the liver. Skin health is a direct reflection of the liver. Anthony William, the Medical Medium says that when you eat wild blueberries, “their innate intelligence reads your body, searches out potential disease, monitors your stress and toxicity levels, and figures out the best way to heal you- it is the only food that does that.”

Go-to quick, healthy meal: A smoothie because it tastes like ice cream, the options are endless and it’s a great way to pack in fruits and greens. My morning smoothie consists of frozen wild blueberries, a frozen banana, a frozen pack of dragon fruit (it’s the fountain of youth for the liver), spinach, spirulina and a scoop of vanilla Sunwarrior protein powder.
I also love making banana ice cream with frozen bananas and vanilla Sunwarrior protein powder. I made the most incredible pumpkin pie nice cream the other day.
Skincare mantra: You are what you eat, so the most important cosmetic investments you make should be about what you eat and products good enough to eat. Beauty is a reflection of wellness that can only be enhanced by skincare and makeup.
Recipe: Cranberry Sauce
2 (12-oz) bags of organic cranberries
2 cups of coconut sugar
2 strips of zested orange peel
Salt (I highly recommend Premier Research Labs pink salt as it adds incredible flavor)
Empty 2 (12-ounce) bags of fresh, organic cranberries into a saucepan, keeping 1 cup and transferring them to a small bowl. Add 2 cups of coconut sugar, 2 strips of zested orange peel and 4 tablespoons of water to the pan and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves and the cranberries are soft (approximately 10 minutes). Increase the heat to medium and cook until the cranberries burst, (approximately 12 minutes). Then reduce the heat to low and stir in the bowl of reserved cranberries, cooking until they are soft. Add more coconut sugar, as well as salt and pepper to taste. I highly recommend adding more coconut sugar at the end as this cranberry sauce is insanely good when extra sweet. I usually add 1/4-1/2 cup more coconut sugar. If you prefer it more tarte, stick with just 2 cups. Also, if the sauce becomes too thick while cooking, just add more water.
