It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here and I wanted to give a quick update as I’ve been getting questions from all over…

My Delicious Health website has been down for over a year… which is normally a big no-no, I know. I know. It was a crazy busy year with many personal and professional transitions. With all that going on, as well as a full practice, I honestly just didn’t take the time to finish up and go live with my new website, write new blog posts, or issue my monthly eZine, Delicious Byte.
Valentine’s Day. We hear it and tend to associate the day with having a sweetheart to dote on. And, depending on our state of happy couple-dom or lack thereof, we either glow with anticipation or want to shrivel up and disappear in a corner somewhere.
What if none of that mattered?
What if your sweetheart was YOU? And you treated yourself like the love of your life?
We, especially as women, tend to take care of everything and everyone else before ourselves. Today I’d like to invite you to turn that way of being upside down. You’ll be a better better-half, mom, daughter, sister, co-worker, girlfriend, friend, and – above all - Self if you first take care of your own needs and happiness, from the inside out.
Super easy to make, this pudding combines the luxurious pleasure of dark chocolate with the richness of coconut milk for a decadently delicious – and healthy! – dessert that’s perfect as you curl up on the couch after dinner or as a treat when you take a break from work or busy-ness during the late afternoon.
Not to mention, it’s perfect as a Valentine’s Day dessert if you’re having dinner at home.
Who doesn’t love spaghetti? (If you say “me!” I want to hear from you; otherwise this is a rhetorical question.)
Talk about winter comfort food. And a healthy version at that! In this dish, using spaghetti squash in the place of spaghetti gives you a low-carb infusion of dense nutrients and fiber, and using ground buffalo gives you a beef alternative that provides a lower-fat boost of warming proteins for a well-rounded, delicious dish that is sure to become a new favorite.
‘Tis the season for increased sugar cravings AND New Year resolutions to get rid of fattening habits – like having and giving in to sugar cravings – AND sweet vegetables, so I figured why not combine all these elements into one article to help you reduce your sugar cravings from the inside out?
- You are addressing only the tip of the iceberg and fighting deeper forces with a needle instead of a sword, which is a strategy doomed for failure; and,
A special post on the Delicious Health blog this week – authored by extraordinarily gifted coach Alicia Marie Fruin, owner and principal coach of People Biz, Inc.

Complimentary Teleclass: “Revved Up for 2012! How to Feed Your Body, Mind & Soul to Create the Business & Balanced Life You Crave without Burning Out” ~ on Thursday January 26, 2012
Calling all Women Entrepreneurs & Entrepreneurs-in-the-Making & Busy Superwomen:
You are invited to a FREE live teleclass with health, nutrition, and balanced living expert Simla Somturk Wickless of Delicious Health
Right about now, you’re probably excited about getting going in 2012 to make your business and personal dreams come true. I can’t be happier for you. For my part, I want to make sure you have the lasting energy and resilience to go the distance!
If you are a woman entrepreneur or are in the process of transitioning to becoming an entrepreneur, you will likely face some or all of the following challenges if you haven’t already:
Have you ever heard of quince? Have you ever bitten into one?
It’s a popular Mediterranean fruit – also used extensively in Latin America such as in the form of Dulce Membrillo in Argentina – that I’m seeing more and more in the US and that I’d like to introduce you to if you’re not yet acquainted.
This recipe creates one of my favorite treats in the world. Quince is a popular winter fruit in Turkey and making jam with it allows us to enjoy it all year round.
The holidays can be a time of intense emotions, not to mention the added pressure of heading into a new year wrought with the expectations of new heights to scale, achievements to cross off, the better person you want to become…
In the midst of all this, have you ever noticed your heart’s true capacity for emotion? Or its ability to cradle multiple emotions at once?

October is National Liver Awareness Month. Are you ready to love your liver?
I love mine. Dearly. After reading this, you’ll love yours too.
About 5.5 years ago, when my health pretty much exploded and I was lost in the maze of conventional medicine, one of the complications I had was medication-induced hepatitis (inflammation of the liver) and pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas).
Trust me, it sucked.
No thanks to that and a cluster of many, many other health issues, I was laid up in bed for months. I had to leave my career and go on disability for the ensuing two years.
