Spread the love:


It is great to meet you. I am Maria. I am blogging from the beautiful island of Trinidad, in the Caribbean (no, really I am!). I have lived here for many years. Basically, I have been enjoying summer all year long for quite a long time. The greatest thing about it is that you never have to worry about what to wear (how cool is that?).

The island is surrounded by multicolored birds, coconut trees and goodies growing everywhere such as mangoes, papaya, bananas and coconuts. As a matter of fact, I am seeing some green little bananas (called ‘figs’ here) growing in my little backyard as I type this.

I wasn’t always into health. Growing up in Argentina, I ate beef every single day for lunch and dinner. I used to eat fried foods very often so I was at the doctor office many times with all sort of digestive issues. I was also short of breath since I had memory even though I never had weight-related issues. You see, being slim (despite popular belief) isn’t synonymous of being healthy. As I got older, I also suffered of very low blood pressure, so ridiculously low that I would get very dizzy and faint. I once fainted as I was traveling alone and just before it happened, I lost my vision completely for a few minutes. It was the scariest experience of my life!

I continued living an unhealthy lifestyle without paying much attention to it until my vision started to give some serious trouble and I decided that it was enough. I wanted to live a healthier life without being sick all the time. I knew I needed to make a few changes in order to accomplish this and by doing so, be able to help my three boys on the Autism spectrum. No, that’s not a typo. I do have three boys with Autism. I cannot afford to be sick folks! I wanted a practical and natural approach to life and healing and that’s how my journey started.


Because it is fresh, natural and comforting like this blog. 😉 At least that’s what I hope your experience will be like. Plus who doesn’t love creamy avocado?


Because I have seen the tremendous impact it had on my life and the life of my family. I was able to reverse all the illnesses I explained earlier and I would LOVE to share this knowledge with you! Since we started eating healthier and using natural remedies, we have seen an impressive decrease of common illnesses. Just by removing a few unhealthy items and replacing them with clean, natural foods and remedies you can make a fabulous impact on your life, feel better and start living!

I am passionate about health related issues because I believe living a healthy lifestyle can help us physically as well as mentally. It changes your perspective of things and you become a happier individual ready to take out the world.

Please feel free to browse all my articles that can help you get started on this journey to health no matter how old you are or where you are living. It is never too late to start!


Everyone’s journey in life is different and that’s what makes the world an interesting place to live. I would love to hear from you whether you are living in the US, Cambodia or Fiji Islands! I love to learn from others and I am pretty sure you have some really good things to teach me and let me tell you, I am all ears and ready. If you want us to talk, please come see me on Facebook or Instagram. You can also check me on Pinterest and follow me on Twitter. I am there almost all the time trying to share articles that can help you and your loved ones into the road of health and happy living.
