Why Trump and Those Around Him Believe He’s NOT Racist

  It’s been a tough few months for me to thrive and keep my optimism–something I try to do so I can stay healthy. But Trump and his administration’s attempts at dismantling the rights of women, people of color, LGBT, environment and access to affordable healthcare makes it extremely hard–especially the last one since I…

Diet Dilemmas when Traveling

Traveling post breast cancer has never been harder. In prepping for my trip to NYC, I spend more time measuring out my herbs, teas, powders than I do figuring out my clothes. I encounter new problems like how do I keep up with my no carb diet, bone broth, shiitake, nettles and oat-straw tea, vitamin…

Diet (r)Evolution

For the last year, I have been taking my diet to the next level. I have had bouts of radiation recall since my treatment in early 2015, and it was something I wanted to address. So, in spring of last year, I took a detox class. I had been eating pretty well, no processed foods,…

Now What 2.0?

A year ago around this time I had just finished radiation and faced this humongous question of now what? I felt like I had finished a triathlon that I hadn’t trained for much less signed up yet, someone had entered me in this race and I couldn’t find a loophole for me to disqualify myself:(…

Is There A Higher Power?

I’m sure anyone who’s been diagnosed with cancer faces the possibility of death and also might even wonder about things like God or a higher power. Here’s a story that might make you start to wonder;-) Talk about the Universe or someone looking out for me–I went into the City for a spa morning on…

Will U B My Valentine Date (Nut Truffles:)

Prep Time: 30 minutes Creation time: 10 minutes Last summer I started my AirBnb business! I decided to start this business when I lost my biggest client from my consulting practice. After having cancer, I started taking supplements like Asea, grape seed extract, wheat grass, turkey tail, and being much more conscious about buying organic meats…

A Little Story About Letting Go…

A little story about letting go, accepting what is, and moving on: On Friday I couldn’t find my prescription glasses. I was baffled and miffed because this was my favorite pair which I keep in my car for driving! I looked underneath the seats and sadly no glasses:( I looked all over my house too…

A Story About Connection on NYE 2015!

So here’s a story about connection on New Year’s Eve–hopefully you can bear with me to the end. So, on Thursday’s I usually work desk shift for the contact improvisation class in Berkeley and I get to take the class after my shift ends which is what I did. It was the first time I…

Dancing Saved My Life Fundraiser!

I got to go this Breast Cancer Retreat earlier this year on Memorial weekend on a partial scholarship and it was so helpful for me to meet other women! These past few weeks I have been helping the organizers with their website so please check it out by clicking on the image below!

Wasabi Deviled Eggs with Pickles!

Deviled eggs is my favorite dish to make for potlucks! They’re finger food and they disappear pretty fast at every pot luck I’ve ever been to. Recently, I decided to come up with a new recipe that has my own twist to it. Being a big fan of wasabi, I wanted to see if it…

MRI all clear!

I got a call from my breast surgeon today! My MRI came back all clear; no abnormalities whatsoever–YAY!! What a difference a year makes. A year ago, I found my lump and one of the most stressful tests I had to take a few weeks after my diagnosis was the MRI:( 35 minutes where I…

My Oncologist’s Reaction When I Stopped Tamoxifen

I’ve been wanting to write about my oncologist for a while and finally I am taking the time to tell you about her! But first I want to apologize as I know it’s been a month since my last post. I have been dealing with my next door neighbor who has been upset with me…
