Fresh Ingredients is the result of an idea born in my heart in the spring of 2013.  As I progressed in my spiritual journey, I was made aware that I need to "Do Something".  I started thinking about a special child I know who is suffering from ADHD.  Unfortunately, there are many more like him in this world.   

I believe that it is the chemicals, preservatives and food dyes that are wreaking havoc with the minds of our children.  I believe that we are at war with Satan and he will use any means possible to prevent us from being one with God.  I believe that all these additives are causing the crack through which evil seeps into the soul.     

Time has passed but I haven't forgotten my commitment to Do Something.  As I was doing research and connecting with people online, I saw that this is not a new idea.  There are many knowledgeable people who are dedicated to spreading the word.  The more I learned, the more this project mushroomed.  But I don't want to just repeat what others have been so capable of reporting on the physical and mental effects of these chemicals.  What I do want to do, though, is add another dimension to the discussion, and talk about the spiritual aspect... the effect on a person's spiritual development, relationship with God; and also relationship with others... at home, at work and in society.  The number of documented cases of mental disorders is growing at an alarming rate.  Our children, who are THE FUTURE LEADERS, may be incapable of handling the challenges of adulthood.  So not just I, but WE need to DO SOMETHING!  

I have been praying for guidance from the Holy Spirit and His messages have been pouring out.  As time goes on, we will continue to add content to the site.

Please let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions; or if you want to contribute your knowledge or share your experiences on this web site. 


"It is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones perish." (Matthew 18:14)

Jesus promised us, "This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day."  John 6:39-40)

Jesus is RELYING ON US to ensure that none of the innocent ones shall be lost.

Finally, I implore the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas; and St. Nicholas the Pilgrim: I hereby proclaim him as the Patron Saint of Fresh Ingredients and it's goals.

Prayer to St. Nicholas 

Saint Nicholas the Pilgrim, help us become more like little children and see Jesus through your eyes of faith.  Let us love the children and do everything through the power of the cross to promote wellness and healing of their minds and bodies.  Amen.
