This is a great, all-purpose flour/starch blend for making tasty and nutritious baked goods….that look AND taste good. This blend seems to do the trick in many of my converted recipes. When looking for a wheat-free substitute for wheat flour, you will need to consider a blend. This is because no other single flour or wheat-free starch behaves the same way as wheat flour...Read More »

Reheating food by microwaving is fast, convenient, uses less energy, recommended by food manufacturers.

What the human digestive tract looks like The human digestive tract is a 30-foot-long tube, with lots of folds and bends, of varying surfaces and purposes, that runs from the mouth to the anus.

Did you know there’s an all-out war going on in your body right now? Every day, your body is fighting desperately to get rid of toxins faster than you’re taking them in.

What a huge difference Cathy made in my office at work! She helped me organize the mountains of paperwork and chaos and now it looks great! I have a system that I know will work for me because she made sure that things were organized by how I use them…everything in its place! I value Cathy’s creativity, integrity, originality and helpfulness in all the organizing/time management projects she does. Next I plan to take her Time Strategies program so I can get my business calendar, appointments and desk organized. Can’t wait!!

I hired Cathy to redesign my office space to enhance the functionality and create a space that I want to work in. Change in any form is never easy, but Cathy listens to your needs and makes recommendations in a gentle and supportive manner. Her focus is to understand how you need your space to function, so that the outcome is both aesthetically pleasing and feels natural based on how you personally process information. Thank you Cathy!
