The Experience of Gratitude

With Thanksgiving coming up, the theme of this Holiday is literally ‘give thanks’. So this month you may be asked more than once… “What are you grateful for?”   Most people will automatically say “my family, partner, pets, home, job, friends” etc. But what exactly does it mean when you say you are grateful for […]

VANILLA GREEN HEMP SEED SMOOTHIE

Makes about 2 (8-ounce) servings This is an energizing way to start your day or give yourself a midday boost, especially with the vanilla hemp protein powder. I really like adding dates (without pits, of course) to any smoothie—they thicken things up and sweeten the blend with a healthier kind of sugar. Also, the coconut […]

Food for Thought

“I look fat today. He didn’t call me back because he probably met someone better.  She’s so much prettier than me.  I’m not smart enough to start my own business.  I’ll never be good enough.”   Does any of this sound familiar?  Have you ever stopped to actually notice the things you are saying to […]

SMOOTH-OUT SMOOTHIE

Makes about 2 (8-ounce) servings There are a few things I like about this smoothie: First of all, yum. The pineapple really counteracts the kale. Kale is SO GOOD FOR YOU, but it can taste bitter if you don’t blend it with a sweet fruit (mango is another good option). Second, the blueberries are packed […]

Life Is Better With Pets!

I love the bumper stickers on cars that say ‘Who Saved Who’?! And I think it’s true! Who did save who? When we get a new pet (whether it be from a breeder or via adopting) I think the initial intention is to make the pet’s life better, to rescue them, to make them a […]

“I DON’T LIKE SALAD ENOUGH, SO I’LL DRINK THIS INSTEAD” SMOOTHIE

Makes about 2 (8-ounce) servings Here’s a basic, great-way-to-start-your-day smoothie. The kale, spinach, celery, and cucumber offer the nutritional equivalent of jamming a salad into your cup, but the result doesn’t taste too veggie-y because the fruit’s sweetness counteracts the bitterness of the leafy greens. If you want a little more sweetness, boost the honey […]

Sisterhood of the Unravelling Pants

For the Love of Clothes: And a Better World Women are only getting stronger and more unified with each passing day. Specifically, in western culture, we are more educated and empowered more than ever. We don’t back down when we hear of inequality or injustice of any sort. We put on the pussy hats and […]

Whether you get these powerful beauty foods through the sweet soup below, or you whip up your own creations, they’ll be working hard to heal remaining summer skin damage and detoxify naturally.   Sweet Autumn Soup Kabocha squash is one of the most […]

Smoothie Tips

•   Cut up your fruits/veggies the night before and stash them in containers so you don’t have to do prep work in the morning. •   Even though they’re a little pricier, I recommend buying organic fruits and vegetables as often as you can. They’re better for you, better for the environment, better for the farmer who grew […]

Healthy Home

With so much emphasis on what we put in our bodies these days we sometimes forget that the items surrounding us in our homes can be just as harmful. Indoor air can be up to four times as polluted as outside air. Products such as MDF which contains formaldehyde can emit irritating and unhealthy fumes […]
