Delicious Gluten-Free Muffins: Carrot Banana Muffins Recipe

As a rule, both unfortunate and challenging, I don’t eat traditional bread or pasta. This was a difficult dietary transition and I would call myself more of a reluctant gluten-avoider than gluten-free. I avoid these things because I don’t feel all that well when I eat them, but I do eyeball fabulous looking pastries and muffins every now and again more »

Effects of Antidepressants: A Personal Account of the Grim Underbelly

“Depression is not a single emotion, but a constellation of emotions, postures, decisions and health issues that erect what I call the brilliant stop sign of the soul.” –Karla McClaren I wrote about my choice not to take antidepressants long term. I used them briefly as a life raft to float through the move out of our family home, a more »

Go Where The Love Is: Following Your Heart

Go Where the Love Is | Dianna Bonny Photography

Over the weekend I had the wonderful fortune to see the movie, The Way Way Back. It’s quirky and if you enjoy a good story, a good laugh and a good cry – it is all of that in just under two hours. I highly recommend it. Plus, it features this cool song by Edie Brickell that should be everyone’s more »

Intuitive Healing: Trust and Surrender

I want to share something odd with you. I don’t think you will mind, since I have already made myself quite naked here. About a month after the life changing summer, I was out for a walk. I am a walker — it is one of the ways I solve my problems, foot to earth, step by step. It is more »

The Addictive Power of Fear

“Fear is a manipulative emotion that can trick us into living a boring life.” -Donald Miller I just returned from a week in Northern California, where I took my son for his college orientation. It was a few days of magic, watching the world unfold through the eyes of an 18 year old about to set off in life. We more »

True Food cookbook | Dianna Bonny Photography

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will know that my curiosity leads me down strange roads in search of healing nutritional food and beverages. This is the result of the ruthless toll stress took on my body and my own lack of knowledge at the time. Had I been better informed, I might have spared more »

Healing Raw Food Experiments and Cashew Recipes

A couple of summer’s ago, one of my boys had terrible stomach problems. Considering everything that had happened during the past year, it wasn’t surprising and I attributed it to stress. I took him to my doctor, who is a super sleuth, and although she could find no physical reasons for the pain, she ran some allergy tests and referred more »

Speak Your Truth: All Your Cells Are Listening

A few months ago, my therapist said something that stuck with me. I was recounting a coffee date I’d had with a nice guy, but someone I intuitively knew I had no connection with from the moment we met. Two things happened. First, as the date came to a close, he asked me if I’d like to go out again, more »

Storytelling: Writing To Heal Your Life

“There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside you.” -Z.N. Hurston I was recently asked an interesting question about my healing process. What is something I did to begin and where exactly did I start? The answer is writing. In many ways, I wrote my way to healing. Not only on this blog but also in my journal, more »

Healthy, Healing Kale Chips Recipes

I had the misfortune of purchasing a bag of Kale chips at Whole Foods once — nacho cheese flavored, I believe. The whole family was disgusted. I don’t think kale stores very well, even in those super sonic, air-tight, space shuttle bags. As hearty as those leaves may seem, they are not meant for prolonged shelf life. I deposited kale more »
