Don’t Be Green With Envy…

…Be Green With Amy

We fit into Rick’s old shirt!

Want to know how I now consume more food now than I ever did when I was overweight? In 2012, I was 30 pounds overweight. My annual blood tests confirmed that I was genetically headed towards Type II Diabetes and high cholesterol. My husband was 100 pounds overweight and on 3 prescription medications for hypertension and high cholesterol. Each year that passed the pounds kept creeping on both of us.

I thought I was eating a relatively healthy diet. I exercised daily, used olive oil, took the skin off my chicken, ate egg whites, made turkey burgers, rarely ate fried food, and asked for my salad dressing on the side. I tried really hard not to over eat, and felt guilty when I did.

But still the pounds kept creeping on….

After much reading, I learned  that I was not eating a healthy diet. I was amazed by how much I truly didn’t know about nutrition. Moreover, how processed foods, salt, oil, sugar and animal products that we ingest, not our genes, greatly determines our health destiny.

To make a change I learned as much as I could about changing to a healthy lifestyle. It was difficult and not very tasty (at first).

My Goal

To take all of the years of learning from information I’ve gathered and experiences from which I’ve learned, and guide you down the trail of fitness, food and an overall healthy lifestyle that has completely revolutionized my world view and my families’ health!

  1. I want to learn more about the Plant Base way of eating for a better gut! Need help on the combination of the foods and taste. Love the Buddha Bowls way of eating – it is working for me. Looking for a community that is supportive and informative!


  2. I would like to find a group in the Gainesville, FL area. I’m very new to this life style and very excited to talk with others. I’m doing the Eat to Live program.


  3. Are you able to offer tips and recipes that would help with fatigue – decreasing fatigue, or to help with RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) as well as weight loss?
