Preventive Health Basics – Juicing

"If you are not your own doctor, you are a fool." -Hippocrates "People don't get it. They think the answer is a pill." It's not a pill, it's a plant -- lots of plants." -Rip Esselstyn If you are not experiencing vibrant health, diet is your first place to look for change.  A mostly raw foods diet can change your life. By popular demand, I taught another juicing class last week in the Coda Health Kitchen in Dental Health of Boulder. Only this time with a twist. I called it: Learn to Juice for a Healthier Life. I love teaching juicing classes because as time goes on, people become more educated on all of the benefits of juicing. Juicing is not some “weird fad diet” or considered “extreme” any longer. Finally, we are taking charge of our own health… and realizing that green juice actually tastes great! I decided to give juicing a real go after watching the film Fat Sick and … [Read more...]

An Easy Healthy Meal for Dental Health

Growing up, I was the world’s pickiest eater. I ate nothing but chicken, cereal and salads. So when I was first taken out for sushi, I remember it clearly. One of my father’s friends took me out to a popular sushi place in Miami Beach, Florida.  Surprisingly, I loved everything about my experience; the different flavors and textures were so different from what I ever had. As we all know, sushi is quite expensive. And so I thought I’d make a go at  preparing sushi at home. Furthermore, why not teach a class at Coda Health Kitchen’s raw foods kitchen? The wheels started spinning. What were my goals in teaching a vegetarian and raw sushi class at Coda Health Kitchen?  As we teach here at CHK, eating raw and vegetarian foods is extremely beneficial for our health. Cooking food destroys much of the natural enzymes in your food that are needed to break down nutrients. Incorporating raw … [Read more...]

Juicing Dental Office

Juicing is a wonderful way to improve your health and help maintain a nutritious raw lifestyle. As the Health Consultant here at Coda Health Kitchen, I'm always asked to name one thing that can be done right away to get healthier. With respect to food choices, the best suggestion I give is to drink freshly pressed vegetable juices. Drinking just one freshly pressed juice each day is a reliable way of infusing your body with a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that can protect your cells against premature aging and disease.  Coda Health Kitchen has partnered with Dental Health Colorado to provide classes, information and services that offer preventive health and holistic care at the dental office. With so many people planning detoxes in the springtime, I thought what a better time to conduct an Introduction to Juicing Class. I spoke to some friends in town who … [Read more...]

Raw Foods Heart Healthy “Cooking” Class

Both of my parents suffer from heart disease so February’s Heart Healthy class meant something really special to me. I choose the recipes carefully, with my parents in mind. I asked my self what would they want to eat and what could they make that was easy enough and tasty enough to integrate easily into their diet. Many times people think healthy food can’t possibly taste good. Some even refer to it as rabbit food. They think that you can't possibly have all of the health benefits of eating raw and have tasty food at the same time. I am here to show you how to have both flavor and health! I teach these classes out of our Coda Health Kitchen, sponsored by and located in Dental Health Colorado, to educate people on how delicious and easy eating healthy really is. Our dentists have made it a point to support preventive oral health through healthy food alternatives and supporting these … [Read more...]

Make Your Own Face Mask Class

One of my favorite parts of teaching here at Coda Health Kitchen is seeing and feeling so much excitement from the attendees. Being part of their experience and knowing I taught them something new. It’s also rewarding to see them have so much fun. And teaching is fun for me too! Another part I love is making people feel both special and beautiful.  This class was all about making your own face mask with all natural ingredients! Having worked in the skin care industry for the past decade has taught me so much.  One thing it has taught me is that every woman wants to feel beautiful. And we all should. When we nourish our body with good foods and products, we feel and look  so vibrant and healthy. Because let’s face it, you truly are what you eat. I taught a “Make Your Own Face Mask” class a few years ago and had so much fun I decided to do it again. Prior to the class, I gathered … [Read more...]
