Healthy Cells, Healthy Immune System, Healthy Body

Our immune system was designed specifically to heal our bodies and keep them healthy. So why are so many failing these days?

There are many factors that cause our immune systems to function poorly - diet, lack of exercise, too much stress and how we handle it, pollutants and contaminants in the air and water, toxins in our food supply, body care and cleaning products among many other factors. But taking our health seriously doesn't have to be burdensome and confusing.

I don't know anyone who wants to be sick or die of disease but sadly that's what is happening to so many people. Death is a sure thing, but disease doesn't have to be.

If you're interested in strengthening your immune system allowing it to do its job, which is to heal your body, then go to Amazing Molecules . Find out how healthy cells make for a healthy body and then contact me!

My version of Mary Ann Esposito's Roasted Potato Salad Recipe

Easy Potato Salad
Adapted from Mary Ann Esposito's Roasted Potato Salad

Serves 4

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons flaxseed oil
1 ½ teaspoons fine sea salt
Fresh ground pepper to taste
½ teaspoon celery salt, optional
1 clove garlic, minced
1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 ½ tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons dried tarragon leaves or 2 tablespoons fresh minced tarragon leaves
4 medium Idaho potaotes, washed
1/4 - 1/2 cup thinly chopped red onion, as desired


In a bowl whisk together 2 tablespoons of olive oil, flaxseed oil, the salt, pepper, celery salt, garlic, dijon mustard, vinegar, honey and tarragon. Pour the dressing into a glass rectangular Pyrex type casserole (9 x 12) Set aside. Or make the dressing ahead and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature when you want to dress the potatoes.

Cook potatoes whole in water until fork tender but still firm (not mushy).  Let cool to warm.  Once cool enough, if desired, remove skins.  Cut into bite pieces, 1-inch cubes.  Add chopped onion.  Toss the potatoes and onion with dressing.  Serve warm or cold.
