Recipe of the Month

Crispy, Sticky, Asian Fried Cauliflower (Vegan & Gluten Free)
Heather Christo, Deliciously Allergen Free Recipes

I had some requests for a plant-based substitute for everyone’s beloved fried chicken wings- a game day staple for many. Cauliflower seemed like a good sturdy choice for deep frying and indeed it worked very well! This easy gluten-free batter is crispy and light and turns a lovely golden brown, while perfectly cooking the cauliflower to tender- not mushy!! I also have to say, that in using a smaller size pot, I didn’t have to use an overwhelming amount of oil and the whole frying/cleaning up was really pretty easy and not at all traumatic!

Holistic Real Estate
Wellness + Health + Real Estate
Brandy Plunk
Did you know that we spend 60-90% of our time inside our homes? In our health-conscious world, we often focus on aspects like diet, exercise, and supplements. However, we tend to overlook the health of our living spaces, which can have a significant impact on our overall well-being. The prevalence of mold illness, chemical sensitivities, chronic fatigue, childhood autism, ADHD, and autoimmune conditions is concerning. (The list goes on…) There are countless stories of homes that contribute to illness rather than nurturing our health. It’s crucial to recognize how the state of our homes may be affecting our health. As a holistic realtor, I bring a professional background as an NCCAOM board-certified and licensed acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist, I spent years specializing in the intricacies of chronic illness, focused on Lyme disease, environmental illnesses, autism, PANDAS/PANS, and ADHD. I truly understand the connections between our living environment and our health. My goal is to help you find a home optimized for health where your nervous system can finally rest, allowing for peace and in turn and physical healing. As a real estate professional, I am committed to changing the norms of real estate. It should be so much more than a traditional focus such as community expertise, aesthetics, or ROI. My joy is in educating and guiding families in holistic living from non-toxic living, EMFs, building biology principles, mindfulness, red flag alerts to indoor air quality. And everything in between. 👉Outside of Arizona? I am part of a vast network of holistic realtors who genuinely understand the importance of a healthy home. If you are in a different area, send me a message! I am more than happy to connect you with a holistic realtor in your local area. I may even collaborate with them to provide coaching and guidance, ensuring your real estate experience aligns with your health goals. I’d love to help you find your healthier home. (928) 379-6338

Healthy House Hunting:

Focus On Health & Wellness In Your New Space

By Amanda Klecker

Catching home buyers at the end of their house hunting journey is where I usually find myself. And quite often, by the time I get to them, they’re fallen so in love with the house we’re inspecting that there’s just very little I can do to change their mind if it really ISN’T the right home for them.

Discover Eco-Friendly Decking Materials and Finishes for a Healthier Outdoor Space

By Andy Pace

Creating a healthy living environment used to stop at the doors and windows. But with the ongoing trend of turning our decks into an extension of our living space, it’s a good idea to think about the materials we use to do so.

Unveiling the Healing Powerof Croatia through ZagrebMed
By Pamela Tames

If you watched Game of Thrones, you probably remember the jaw-dropping locations—King’s Landing, Daenerys Targaryen's throne room in Meereen, and the Haunted Forest. They were all shot in parts of Croatia, a country located in southeast Europe, nestled along the Adriatic Sea. As impressive as these iconic spots may be, they’re just part of what Croatia has to offer.

Lagom: A Harmonious Way of Living
By Cassy West

Lagom (pronounced law-gohm) is the Swedish word used to describe an amount or a state which is ‘just right’- not too much and not too little. It is an amount so perfect that it creates a sense of harmony and serenity. Unlike hygge, a Norwegian term for a momentary state of bliss promoting warmth and comfort, lagom is a way of living.

By Kate Hamblet, Wellness Architect

Key Considerations in Home Design Designing a new home or renovation is such a big endeavor that it’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the decisions, and ultimately overlook some very important design considerations.
