I am so beyond excited to welcome and celebrate Thanksgiving this year. Few know this about me, but Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. I love the gatherings, celebrations, colors, and cold season. It makes my heart happy just thinking about it! Growing up as a child back in Israel, we did not celebrate Thanksgiving. Since moving to America, I feel so blessed and fortunate that it can be in my family's life.

For me, Thanksgiving is more than just another holiday. Thanksgiving means giving thanks to all of the people and blessings in our lives. It even means giving thanks to the hard lessons, challenges and breakdowns that we had to encounter during 2018. All of these lessons, people, and challenges were actually showing up in our lives to teach us a very important lesson. They taught us to rise above, become better versions of ourselves, and to have more compassion, mercy, and understanding towards one another. So on this Thanksgiving holiday, I would like to take a moment and thank you for being in my life. I want to thank everyone that was or still is a part of my life. Thank you for making my life richer, happier and teaching me the lessons that I needed in this lifetime.

This Thursday, while you’re sitting around the table, take a moment and look at the people around you and silently say, "Thank you. Thank you for being in my life, no matter what the circumstances are".

Wishing you a fantastic, celebratory, and beautiful Thanksgiving. May God bless you and your family!
Master Class Series
I have once again partnered up with the incredible brains at Blendtec for an educational, always fun shoot. This time it was a "how to" series that teaches viewers how to make delicious recipes at home that are healthy, full of nutrients, and all take under 5 minutes to prepare.

We had two days of shooting. The first day included a one-on-one interview where I shared my breakdowns that led to big break throughs. I expressed that I had to make tough decisions in order to be the woman I am today. Every moment is a lesson. Every decision that we make, big or small, will effect our lives. You must make sure you listen to your heart and go inwards to make your decisions. Don't listen to the voice of your ego, or go outwards and ask others. You, and only you, have the ability, knowledge and wisdom to make your decisions.

On the second day of the shoot, we went to Hedley & Bennett in Vernon, California. I teamed up with NBA Clippers star, Tobias Harris and his personal chef Jason Pabst. I made my famous skinny hot chocolate and my one ingredient cashew dip. Tobias made a delicious butternut squash soup, and Jason made a tasty energy boosting smoothie. It was an amazing experience, and I cant wait to show you the finished product. Stay tuned!

1 Year Anniversary of
Healthy Indulgence !
I can't believe that it is the one year anniversary of my book, Sima's Healthy Indulgence. So much has happened since it's release. This book allowed me to touch so many lives, and for that I am forever grateful. I was able help others and share my passion for healthy food and healthy lifestyle. I can't express how grateful I am for all the opportunities that have since followed.

My book brings together 100 soul-sizzling recipes that cover six meals a day (three main courses and three snacks), including nutritious and cleansing drinks and mouth-watering desserts – all designed with less than 10 ingredients to be ready in less than 30 minutes. These Healthy Indulgence recipes follow my nutritional guidelines of PCF combo (power protein, complex carbohydrates, and friendly fats). This method is not just for detox or weight loss, rather an answer to gaining energy, improving metabolism, and relinquishing sweet tooth and cravings, while still allowing you to lose or maintain your weight.
