Maria started the "OK In Health" website in 2004, as she felt there was a real need for networking and supporting of our Health and Wellness Community. She felt there was also a need for a main place to post all workshops and natural health related information in the Okanagan, B.C., & AB...  
In 2006, Maria went to Ireland to launch OK In Health - In Ireland.

Having a completely green business was a very important part of the goals for OK In Health, hence why we only offer an e-Magazine.

Maria hosts a weekly Health Column in 5 Okanagan newspapers and was invited to give a talk to 200 people at the "2008-The Year to Create". Maria's topic was called - "Create Your Dream!"

Recipe
Whole-Wheat Carrot Cake
Category: Desserts
Description: Carrot cake is a perennial favorite, but it is often loaded with vegetable oil and laden with a cream cheese frosting. Our version is healthier, using a small amount of olive oil, a full cup of honey for moistness and flavor, and a combination of whole wheat pastry and unbleached flours. The crunchy walnuts even add a bit of omega-3 fats to this sweet treat. With a cup of hot green tea, this cake will make you forget about cream cheese frosting. Enjoy!
