i failed

“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt Disney

My goal for 2014 was to maintain a healthy lifestyle. And lose weight.

My success was extraordinary. My failure is obvious.

My family now is remarkably idealistic when it comes to food; we follow the Food Babe quite strictly. No fast food, no beaver anal secretions a.k.a. natural flavoring, no GMOs, etc. I learned how to bake with mixes of gluten free flours so our lives go on normally without my son getting sick. We nixed the microwave. All in all, major improvements in one year!

The failure is obvious however. I cannot kick the sugar addiction. Whew! So I lost and kept off 20 pounds but I still have a ways to go. Sugar is in my way. So, I failed. But I know it is one more step to where I want to be. I am going to keep moving forward: joining the Robinson family.



Gluten Free journey

A memory. Traveling in the family mini van with three beautiful children. On our way to celebrate my oldest son’s birthday. He leaning sideways moaning. Why do I always get sick on my birthday?

Rashes. Nausea. Diarrhea. Severe abdominal pain. Moodiness.

His innate athleticism was squandered. His every day life stymied by inexplicable illness.

More questions. Why do I always get sick when we eat at a restaurant? 

The doctor who had my husband as a patient has no answers. The doctor who goes beyond the traditional methods discovered gluten intolerance. We took gluten out of my son’s diet and he quickly recovered.

His life was dramatically changed by a gluten sensitivity diagnosis. It took too long. He suffered unnecessarily.

Words of wisdom about healthy living from Andrea


Hi everyone,

my name is Andrea, I am 20 and I am currently studying Journalism at the City University in a wonderful city of London. Couple of years ago I started to be interested in healthy lifestyle , and as I was monitoring huge changes on myself within very short period of time, I decided to run a blog and spread the magic of the power of healthy and full-value life which everyone of us deserves. I am more than happy to welcome you on my own personal blog called: ” Health is From Heaven “

Living in the 21st century:

when we are married to our computers, rather than dreams
when everyday stress is treated by medium latte rather than 5 minutes long walk in the park
when food is not meant to nourish us but cause us addictions and illnesses
when low-cost fast foods make us forget the price of our health
and when the ‘spiritual’ is constantly being separated from the ‘physical’
In this blog you will find posts about healthy lifestyle,easily prepared and healthy recipes, interviews with various interesting people on lifestyle, health, diet, exercise, and many other inspirational and motivational articles, videos and music.


Gluten makes me fat and gassy.

Bread is a nemesis to us all!

I have a son who is sensitive to gluten and he has strong side effects. I took advice, and though I tolerate gluten, since it makes me very gassy and bloated, I am very focused on avoiding it. I find it to be very easy now. When we first realized the problems gluten caused our son, switching was like a swimmer who had to find an alternative to water.

7 months to go toward having a healthy lifestyle

Almost every time I see my face or whole body in a mirror I am surprised at the woman I see is me! I used to be slender….ummm…before babies; my youngest are almost ten! I feel like I am a size 6 living in a size 16 body.

I finally realized that nothing would change unless I did something about it. I actually believed the weight would come off as easily as the cheesecake and fast food slid down my throat. So, with a more realistic view of my life, in January 2013, I set a goal. By 2014 I would be living a healthy lifestyle of clean eating and regular exercise.

Four months in, and only ten pounds lighter, I am acutely aware that the next eight months must be different. I must move my body. I must cut carbs.
