Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo

  1. I love making soups like that. I love the interplay of savory and sweet. Using yogurt in a soup is new to me though. I’ll have to try that sometime.

    1. Thanks so much for your comment, I usually strain it to get rid of the excess that may be clumpy in your soup to ensure a smooth consistency, however, it’s not a mandatory step and can easily be skipped if you don’t mind a bit of pulp/chunk in your soup. Thank you again for your comment….I hope you enjoy this tasty soup!

      Happy Holidays!

      Best,

      Amie

    1. Thanks so much, Michael. Wow your Moroccan Acorn Squash looks amazing; I’m going to surely have to try that. Thank you, again; have a great night. Best, Amie
