Satisfy Your French Fries Craving

These cold weather months often have me craving comfort foods from my childhood. French Fries were always a favorite amongst my family. Since I have made a commitment to myself to fuel my body with healthy noninflammatory foods, traditional French fries are no longer an option for me. However, I am not left feeling deprived as I have replaced them with tasty and healthy veggies.

You can use numerous vegetables like beets, sweet potatoes, zucchini, summer squash, carrots, eggplant, turnips and parsnips. Just alter the recipe below with whatever veggie you have on hand. This is also a great way to encourage your youngsters to test out new vegetables. I also like to pair mine with fun and healthy dips like the avocado dipping sauce listen below.

One of the most important things when making homemade fries is how you cut the vegetables. Consistency is key; they don’t need to be cut into perfect spears, but they should all be about the same size. This ensures that the fries cook evenly. Otherwise, small-cut fries will end up overcooked or burnt, while the larger-cut ones won’t cook through all the way.

Vegetable Fries 


2 sweet potatoes (Subsittude any other veggie you would like)

2 Tbl avocado oil

1 tsp celtic sea salt

Optional: 1 Tsp  of garlic, onion, chili or paprika powder


Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Avocado Dipping Sauce


1 ripe avocado

Juice ½ lemon

2 Tbl chopped cilantro

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.


Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.


Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
