Make A W.I.S.H.

WISH | Women's International Summit for Health

In Celebration of International Women's Day, we are honored to present:


Women's International Summit for Health

40 of the World's Leading Experts in Health and Wellness Have Come Together to Share Their Wisdom with Women and You Can Listen to Them
All in the Comfort of Your Own Home

Never before have women had such a remarkable, wide-reaching opportunity to
improve their health and their lives.

Dear Sisters, Mothers, Daughters...

Think back.

Think waaaaay back to a time before wrinkles, cellulite and menstrual cycles took up your attention. Think back to before broken hearts and to do lists came along.

Remember the birthday candles, dandelion seedlings and wishing fountains?
Remember how you used to dream and believe that anything was possible?

We know it isn't easy juggling laundry piles, dirty dishes, food prep, homework, scraped knees, tender hearts and wellness. The to do list is long, and often the things we put last are for our own benefit.

For 10 days we're inviting women around the world to
prioritize themselves like never before.


W.I.S.H.: Women's International Summit for Health

On March 8, 2010, for 10 consecutive days, hundreds of thousands of women from around will come together to find the answers they've been looking for.

What Is W.I.S.H. all about and why should I attend?

W.I.S.H. stands for Women's International Summit for Health and it is a modern-day online women's circle of wisdom. Throughout recorded history and long before that time, women have come together to support and empower one another in times of need. We've shared childcare duties, laundry and even lovers in some cultures. Women find solace and strength in sisterhood, and WISH makes it happen on a larger scale than we've ever known before.

With more than 40 star-studded interviews, and 10 different life areas being addressed, WISH promises to be the best event of its kind for women.

Foodie Friday - Late Winter Dinner & Dessert

Butternut Squash Spaghetti w/ Pistachio Sage Pesto

For the Pesto:
1 cup fresh sage
2/3 cup raw pistachios (pecans are good too)
1/3+ cup olive oil
1 clove crushed garlic
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp. rawmesean cheese (or nutritional yeast)

For the spaghetti:
1 small butternut squash, peeled
olive oil to taste
sea salt & freshly cracked pepper

Put all ingredients for the pesto into a food processor and pulse until well combined. (A blender will work fine if that is what you have). Store pesto in an air tight container until ready to use.

Spiralize or julienne peel a butternut squash to create spaghetti noodles. Toss the noodles in a bit of olive oil, salt & pepper to bring out the richness in flavor and to soften the squash. Coat the the noodles with the sage pesto and serve. Garnish with fresh sage and a dusting of rawmesean cheese.
