In March, we “spring forward” into all of spring’s budding possibilities and “Kiss me I’m Irish” shenanigans. We see St. Patrick’s Day decorations and flowering plants begin to sprout up, decorating our world with green.
Green is one of my favorite colors. To me it inspires a sense of grounding and feels clean and [...]
This is one of my new tactics against my annual sinus infections.
Go to your health food store and buy a small amount of each: cardamom, cinnamon stick, ginger root, turmeric root, black pepper, orange peel, cloves, astralagus root, ashwagandha, juniper berries and a box of rooibus tea for taste. Put about 1/2 – 1 [...]

Before taking a raw “cooking” course, I had this perception that preparing raw food would be difficult, timely or tedious. Turns out, it is totally fast and easy (just think, there is only prep time, no COOKING time!).
I remember it was about a year ago that a client gave me the book The Raw [...]
I just got back from a blissful trip to the Bahamas where I visited the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat and took a course on raw food preparation. We prepared many beautiful recipes, learned the power of raw super foods, how the enzymes in raw food bless your body, and explored raw food techniques such as [...]

It is January, month of intention, resolution and perhaps life changing Sankalpa. As I understand Sankalpa, the purpose is to make a change that is positive and life-affirming, not one we will feel guilty about if we do not follow through, NOT AN EXERCISE IN SELF LOATHING!
