Your friend on the left is trying the Keto Diet.
Your friend on the right says they might become a Fruitarian.
You’ve seen dozens of online articles and research explaining how reducing carb intake leads to weight loss.
Yet many populations throughout the world base their diet on rice and noodles and have a very healthy BMI.
So what’s the bottom line with carbs?
In the midst of today’s food environment, where so many low-quality carbs and bad food combinations are commonplace, I’m not surprised that many diets target carbs as the “bad guys.”
But before we start second-guessing our sweet potatoes, lentil beans, apples and wild rice, let’s review carbohydrates for a minute.
Our bodies are built to run off of carbohydrates. The mitochondria inside our cells responsible for energy production are designed with glucose as their primary fuel source. (Glucose is the unit that carbohydrates are...
I had the privilege of speaking to a large audience at the Salt Lake Palace about a topic the government itself owns patents on: Cannabis, or, as you may know it, marijuana.
Now don’t stop reading, marijuana is a made up word...a slang word for the highly medicinal plant found throughout the world.

Excerpts from the Sun Chapter in my new book! COMING SOON!
by Karen Urbanek
I was counseling a woman who had come in for help with her 15-year-old daughter. Her daughter had terrible bowels and could not eat anything without getting sick. She had no energy, had been pulled from school, and sat inside on the computer and TV. She had once been active on sports teams and had many friends, but now, she was miserable.
She had been labeled by the doctors with the typical diagnoses of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, but nothing they offered was helping. We talked about diet, how often she was in the sun, walking outside, on the phone, where the smart meter was located, and more.
The mother’s reply took me off guard, “The doctor told her she could not be in the sun as she would get cancer, and she could never walk barefoot again because she would get parasites.”
At times like this I am really glad my liver works! Because had it not been so darn clean, every...

6 TIPS TO ALLEVIATING KNEE PAIN by Amy Sprouse
Hello! This is Karen’s daughter Amy, and I’m passionate about exercise and the physical care side of treating our bodies. Eating right is important, but some parts of the body simply REQUIRE particular movement and attention to function properly.
Growing up, physical movement for me looked like lightsaber battles on the grass, playing horse with my little sisters, or pick-up football, frisbee, and kickball games on patch of land next to our house. Since my family conveniently has enough people in it to make up two teams (with the helpful addition of two neighbor boys), mom and dad legendarily spray-painted various sports fields onto the grass next to our house and even installed a huge field goal. They should win an award for that right? We were set for our whole childhood (until the field was ruthlessly turned into a giant vegetable garden).
I imagine like many others, I didn’t start learning about the...
I took a favorite raw cookie recipe from our cafe and tweaked it to have no grain, this is it!
My son-in-law Dax and our sweet Julia (newlyweds) stopped by just after I made these YUMMY raw cookies! Dax, a wonderful chef, exclaimed, “I love these cookies!” As they had no name…..I just named them after him! Love you Dax! (we do have the most amazing children-in-laws ever....)

BLEND AND BAKE CAULIFLOWER PIZZA CRUST
Combine in a blender the following:
5-6 cups cubed cauliflower, 2 teaspoons Karen’s Pizza seasoning (pg.28 Living in Rawality), 1/4 of an onion, 3 TB non-fortified Nutritional Yeast, 6 eggs or egg replacer, 3 TB coconut oil, 1/3 cup flax seed meal, 1 cup almond flour. BLEND and spread evenly onto 2 cookie or pizza sheets. It may seem runny, BUT it bakes up perfectly! Bake at 345 degrees for 15 minutes. Top with toppings...
