My First Weeks in New York and a Recipe for Valentine’s Day

Posted on Jan 25, 2016 in Addictions, Candida, Events | 0 comments

Just experienced my first New York blizzard! That was a lot of snow, but now added to my ever growing list of “firsts” since moving here last month. I’ve loved meeting with new clients in my new office in New York. I know, lots of “news”! For those that would like to see me for an in office visit, I am working Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in Manhattan out of Dr. Dean Mitchell’s office at: 57 West 57th St., Suite 601, NY, NY 10019. To schedule an appointment please call  (818) 763-8282 or email:

Besides the extreme weather and my new office hours, I’ve got a few other exciting things to share with you.  First, I’m totally thrilled to have been asked to be one of the speakers at this year’s Recovery 2.0 Online Conference.

This conference focuses on how to build a healthy, happy addiction-free life for those in recovery. I am looking forward to sharing with conference attendees the role candida can play in addiction and recovery, a relationship not widely discussed. I’m certain making more people aware of candida and how to rid it from the body, will be of huge importance in the critical steps to individual recovery. To register for this free online conference being held February 17-21, 2016, please click here.


Recovery 2.0 Conference - candida and recovery


“The Candida Cure Cookbook” is on schedule to be released in March as planned, and pre-ordering is now available on Amazon! This has truly been a labor of love putting together this collection of recipes to support your efforts to take charge of your health and be candida free. And speaking of love…. Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away, and I thought this would be a good time to share one more “sneak preview” recipe from the book in time for your special holiday dinner.


Coconut Cream Parfait   The Candida Cure Cookbook - coconut cream parfait

¼ cup nondairy milk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract (alcohol-free)
10 drops liquid stevia
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup fresh berries of choice, for garnish
¼ cup raw slivered almonds, for garnish


In a food processor, blend the coconut cream, nondairy milk, vanilla, stevia, and sea salt until combined well. Chill in the refrigerator to firm up the pudding. Place in a serving bowl or parfait glasses and top with fresh berries and slivered almonds.


Lot’s more to share in upcoming weeks – hope you’ll stick around!
