When we owned the retirement home, we used to do something we called the tapioca meditation.

Making tapioca for 30 people took at least 45 minutes of almost constant attention and very boring stirring.

There was just no way around it, not making tapioca was out of the question, it was one of our resident’s favourite desserts. So we learned to just accept it and eventually, make the most of it.

The tapioca meditation.

I probably spend a little more time preparing food and make more dishes than most people. I’m conscious of that and it’s something that I find myself constantly negotiating with clients.

Taking the time for YOU.

The thing is, I wouldn’t do all this stuff and invest the time if I didn’t feel like there was a SOLID payoff.

Payoff as in; less inflammation, nice stable energy, clear skin, a looong run of no sick days. I even think that my outlook and mood is better when I take the time and do the stuff…

It’s been almost 10 years since I cracked open my first textbook on holistic nutrition and really started diving into this stuff.

I am more convinced than ever that IT IS WORTH THE TIME!

Getting sick will suck up a lot of time without the payoff.

It’s up to you.

If I made you cranky it’s probably not the right time 😉

Cheers to great health,


My utopian world has commercials on TV touting the benefits of wholesome natural foods the same way we now hear endless drug commercials.

Only the vegetable and whole food commercials won’t have the laundry list of side effects where the announcer has to speak at warp speed to fit them all in.

Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and kale, contain a phytochemical called sulforaphane

Sulforaphane is a ROCK STAR. It should be a household word. Here’s why.


neutralizes toxins which means it’s good for the liver
has anti cancer and anti-tumor properties
is an antioxidant which means it protects the heart
has anti-inflammatory properties
helps with diabetes by stabilizing insulin

So along with a regular intake of cruciferous vegetables, I’ve been getting my sulforaphane from broccoli sprouts.

It turns out that that broccoli sprouts can contain up to 100 X more sulforaphane than broccoli.

Translation. That means that eating 1 ounce of sprouts gets you the same amount of sulforaphane as eating 6 lbs of broccoli.

Broccoli sprouts have a slight peppery flavour that’s more similar to radishes than mature broccoli. Use them as a garnish, throw them into salads, sandwiches or smoothies.

Sprouts are easy to grow at home, check out the easy sprouting procedure HERE.

Sulforaphane is just one tiny example of the power of real food.

ALL whole foods contain their own signature blend of nutrients that has their own role to play in a healthy balanced diet.

Metabolic Balance relies exclusively on regular food that can be found in your grocery store.

Over 20 years of ongoing research has resulted in an extensive databank of what each specific food brings to the table in terms of nutrients.

Your meal plans is tailored to your individual needs based on your blood values, measurements, health conditions… even what you do for a living is factored in.

This type of advanced preventative nutrition has been used in agricultural animal nutrition for decades because prevention is cost effective, calling the vet and treating is not. I think it’s time for a little more prevention don’t you?
