On my flight to the Caribbean right now to spend a week with my mentor Brendon Burchard and our mastermind group. And I am so thankful that my husband George made me a gluten and dairy-free pizza this morning to take on board!
Bringing my own food, supplements and purified water is an absolute must to maintain energy, mental clarity, hydration and to eliminate sugar cravings. I like to pack foods and snacks that are easy to prepare, store in a glass container and eat with pleasure.
Yes- the pizza is higher in non-gluten carbs, but it is so much better than a dried up turkey & cheese sandwich with wilted lettuce that the airline sells! I also packed turkey jerky, seed & nut bars, and my green turbo charge drink mix.
My Gluten and Dairy-Free Pizza is easy-peasy to make, just get the following four items at your local health food store. If you can’t find the exact brands, get whatever is available as long as it is gluten and 100% dairy-free. And shop for organic ingredients if possible!
- Udi’s Gluten-Free Pizza Crust
- Cadia Organic Pizza Sauce
- Daiya Dairy-Free Shredded Cheese
- Uncured Nitrate-Free Pepperoni
Add more ingredients if you like such as olives, green onions, sun-dried tomatoes.
Heat the oven up at 375 degrees– the pizza size is perfect for a toaster oven. Pop it in for 7-8 minutes and voila! You have your meal on board ready to go.
Cool it, slice it, then store it in a glass container.
WANT A TIP on how do you keep the slices from sticking to each other and not touch the plastic top? Use Parchment Paper to separate each layer!
I do call myself The Sensitive Voyager –the more I plan, prepare and bring my own food, the more fun I have on my trip!
St. Martin, here I come!

I have stopped eating seafood since Fukushima disaster in 2011 and have been asking people to reduce fish, shellfish, sea vegetable intake, due to the heavy mercury toxicity and nuclear radiation exposure.
Here is another reason to stop eating fish and seafood altogether!
Take a look at this revealing video made by Dr. Michael Greger of NutritionFacts.org that explains how exposure to mercury during pregnancy by ingesting fish appears to influence fetal brain development as detected by decreased size of a newborn’s brain.
Lose weight while you are sleeping?
What a concept! Look out fitness and weight loss supplement industry, because there is a new weight-loss sheriff in town!
Studies are now showing that you can lose weight by how much you sleep and the quality of your sleep and that it has a strong affect on your appetite. There are two hormones produced in our body that are rarely discussed in the health industry- ghrelin and leptin. They both work hand in hand to control feelings of hunger and fullness.
What are these two hormones?
Ghrelin is produced in the gut and it stimulates your appetite, meaning, it makes you want to eat more food. Leptin is produced in the fat cells and send s a signal to our brain when you are full. That is why I created the mantra:
Go away Ghrelin, I love Leptin™!
So how are they connected to sleep?
When you don’t get enough number of sleep hours, it drives the leptin down, which means you don’t feel very satisfied after your meals. Lack of sleep also stimulates ghrelin release, which means your appetite goes up so you want to eat more food. Not the best for your health and waist-slimming efforts.
This explains why people over eat after a poor night’s sleep—never satisfied with their meals, which sabotages their efforts to lose that muffin top!
One study from Stanford University of California found that those who slept less than eight hours a night had lower levels of leptin and higher levels of ghrelin, AND sure enough—higher levels of body fat! Those who slept the fewest hours each night weighed the most!
OK – let’s make SLEEP a priority to a healthier and happier new you!
Here are 5 easy-to-implement tips to getting more sleep:
1. Eat healthful meals regularly- 3 meals per day and a snack. Stabilizing your blood sugar and optimal protein ingestion will help with you from waking up in the middle of the night.

2. Turn off all overhead lights, television, computers, and electrical gadgets by 9:00 pm and take a nice relaxing bath with a few drops of lavender oil.
3. To keep your mind from thinking about your next day tasks and responsibilities while lying in bed, write them down in your journal and it will free your brain from ruminating.
4. Use an eye mask and ear plugs, these are my most important sleeping aids!
5. Keep animals out of your bed, we love them but love your sleep more!
Sleep is one of my best strategies to living young and strong!
Cold and Flu season is already here!
There are so many different viruses that can ruin our day, week or even month, such as Rhinovirus, H1N1, H2N2, influenza A/B, Parvovirus, Corona virus, RSV, Russian flu, Hong Kong flu etc.
Here are some supplements that I take myself to prevent and remedy the typical viral symptoms:
Probiotics- AM and PM
Vitamin C 3x/day
Biocidin Throat spray
Quercetin for excess mucus/secretions
Zinc gluconate lozenges/lollipops
Olive Leaf Extract liquid/capsules or Elderberry Extract
SilverSol Power liquid, broad spectrum antimicrobial
Homeopathic lymphatic drainage cream
Eat only cooked foods, no dairy, sugar, gluten, alcohol and yeast
Sleep, sleep, sleep!
Prevention is my type of best medicine! Have an awesome healthy day!
