Vimergy Logo final


My friends Philip and Casey McCluskey started Vimergy, and you’ve got to check it out. Vimergy features some of the most amazing superherbs on the planet, such as Reishi, Chaga, Gynostemma and many more. These herbs are wildcrafted in China, which means they grow naturally in rural areas and are harvested by hand. They have been used for thousands of years to produce radiant health.

More about the Vimergy founders:
Philip, an author, motivational speaker, and weight loss expert and Casey McCluskey a nutritionist, life coach, master herbalist and author, have spent much of their lives seeking the most effective ways to improve their minds and their bodies. Their separate journeys converged in 2011 when they discovered how their paths had paralleled one another much of their lives. Together, they have shared their knowledge and experience with each other and the rest of the world through coaching, speaking and writing.

Herbal supplements have long been the foundation of physical wellbeing and mental clarity for both Philip and Casey. Through their weight-loss struggles, health ailments, and anxieties, Philip and Casey have found the strength and commitment to heal themselves with support from the natural world. Seeing the potency of herbs first-hand, Casey nurtured her understanding of their remarkable healing effects until she became a master herbalist.

Today Philip and Casey integrate herbs into all of their health and spiritual coaching. From cleanses and weight-loss programs to emotional guidance and re-invigoration, Philip and Casey offer a series of unique approaches to transforming physically and mentally. Their ideas are a fusion of Eastern and Western concepts that work powerfully together to improve lives.

Whenever I travel, my Vitamix blender always goes along for the ride. I use it several times a day for smoothies, nut milks, desserts, salad dressings and sauces. Before my Vitamix, I owned another less expensive blender. I thought I was getting a good deal, but the consistency of the smoothies and sauces were never right. I would end up throwing out half of everything I made. Not only that, my old blender would regularly get jammed and make a mess in the kitchen.

Eventually I got fed up enough and picked up a Vitamix. It’s the Rolls Royce of blenders. The smoothies, desserts and sauces are delicious and always have the perfect consistency. Plus my Vitamix comes with a variable control so I can change speeds. Cleaning is easy and quick, and usually takes a minute or two.

The bottom line is that Vitamix blenders make it much easier to stay healthy because everything tastes so darn good. I’m not kidding when I say that it’s the only kitchen appliance I can’t live or travel without. Once you try it, you’ll never settle for anything less.

Just Juice 4 Life (Rochester NY)

JUST JUICE 4 Life Logo

A recent summer visit to Rochester NY introduced me to Just Juice 4 Life, and was I glad I found this place.  Owner Damaris Pinedo makes some of the best elixirs you’ll find anywhere.  I started my day with Morning Glory which is loaded with kale, jalapeno, orange, cilantro, garlic and ginger.  Then I came back a few hours later for a Green Goddess.  This is a really hydrating & refreshing drink with lots of kale, green apples, cucumber and lime.  Just Juice 4 Life does juices, smoothies and cleanses.  Definitely worth a visit.  To learn more, visit their website:

Luna’s Living Kitchen

LUNA's LOGO 2012 When I was visiting relatives in Charlotte, Luna’s was my go-to place for raw, delicious nourishment.  I introduced my family to this place and everyone loved it.  Everything I ate at Luna’s was phenomenal, but if I had to pick favorites, it would be the Kelp and Kale Salad along with the Lunasagna.  They are both otherworldly and so incredibly flavorful.  Words don’t do justice to these entrees.  Top off your meal with an Incan Warrior smoothie.  It’s a mix of hemp milk, maca, cinnamon, raw cacao and banana.  If you want a juice with a real bite, try the Volcano, the perfect drink to start the day.  It’s made with orange, lemon, grapefruit, maple syrup and a kick of cayenne.  Love this place!  To learn more, visit their website:

Nourish Your Soul

NOURISH LOGO When I visited Nourish over the summer, I was so impressed by the vast array of juices and smoothies.  Owner and Founder Susan Cabana opened the first shop in Medford and now they have a second one in South Boston.  My personal fave is the Green Juice: it’s a detoxing combo rich in anti-oxidants, chlorophyll and powerful vitamins and minerals.  And besides all that, it also tastes amazing.  But really, you can’t go wrong with any of the juices and smoothies.  Or better yet, take your health to the next level and arrange a juice cleanse with Susan.  To learn more, visit their website:

Khepra’s Raw Food Juice Bar

KHEPRA big logo


When I visited some friends recently in Washington DC, I went to Khepra’s Raw Food Juice Bar every night.  One bite and you are hooked.  Chef owner Khepra Anu is a visionary and his food explodes with flavor.  My personal favorites were the Nut Hemp Burger, Avocado Wrap and oh yes, the Coconut Crab Cake.  Besides the entrees, you can also load up on scrumptious sides like Garlic Kale, Creamy Collards, “Fried” Plantains and Cauliflower Nuggets.  They give you a ton of food and if you are like my friends and I, you will devour each and every delicious bite.  But you won’t feel guilty because it’s all living, enzymatic, micro-nutrient dense food.  It’s healing you from the inside out. And one more thing: if you really want to indulge your taste buds, try the cashew cheesecake, but don’t plan on sharing it with anyone else.  You’ll be eating that one yourself and you’ll probably be going back for seconds.  To learn more, visit their website:

Catch a Healthy Habit

NR-Glen-CAHH-Fairfield-Sign-v1I first visited Catch a Healthy Habit Cafe in Fairfield Connecticut a few years ago when I was interviewing superfood guru David “Avocado” Wolfe. It was a long drive down to CT, so when I arrived at the cafe, I was tired, famished & needed immediate sustenance. Was I in for a treat when I entered this raw food hot spot!

Immediately, I was blown away by the amazing array of meals and smoothies on the menu. It was a really hard choice but I finally settled on the Catch a Healthy Habit nut seed & veggie burger on onion bread and a Popeye juice. The burger was exceptional and loaded with flavor. And the juice was the perfect way to kick start the day! I can’t wait to go back this year and chow down on some nori wraps, raw pizza & the magic mushroom elixir with chaga and reishi!

Glen and Lisa are the amazing owners of the cafe. Not only do they serve great food, they also sponsor speakers, events, movies, even raw chocolate parties and juice cleanses. Love these guys, they live the philosophy of our movie: change your life, one bite at a time!

Who knew catching a healthy habit could be so delicious & fun!!!
