Happy Monday! I feel like the last 48 hours are a blur and a dream...I'm officially a college graduate and beginning the next chapter of my life - a 23-year-old still trying to change the world, become the healthiest person I can be, and to appreciate all the little blessings in my life. This past… Continue reading Rant: GMO, gut disease, inflammation, and the great USofA
I am hurting today. Yesterday, around noon, I just got a horrible migraine and neck ache I thought it could be from poor diet (a little too much sugar for the past week)...maybe not doing yoga (haven't been in the studio in a week, but have been doing some at home)...or from staring at this computer… Continue reading Chia seeds, back pain, & graduating
Well, today is Thursday, and just less than a week ago, I finished cleansing with Bepure. I had a great cleansing experience - but due to the stress of life, I've been needing a little boost of caffeine this whole week. Maybe it has been the rainy weather...or the late nights...or the anticipation for graduation… Continue reading Trail Mix, Coffee, & Quality
One thing I’ve learned over the years is that eating well starts with the basics. Having a fully stocked kitchen helps to ease the time crunch of cooking. Over the past 4 years I’ve collected supplies, gadgets, and even some junk. I’ve learned that buying quality is ALWAYS better than saving a dollar or two.… Continue reading What’s in my kitchen?
Friday was the last day of my Bepure cleanse - so this weekend was a celebratory weekend and I had a great time! I noticed that I'm still having more energy than I had before I started cleansing - which is great! My body is feeling healthy and alive - not just being...but actually being… Continue reading Cleansing Complete…& the next adventure is…?
For the past month or so, I have been doing volunteer work at the People's Food Coop. I attend their cooking classes, take pictures, and tweet about them to help spread the word of these awesome cooking classes and the Can-Do Kitchen. Last night was the Get Juiced! class - where we juiced it up.… Continue reading Juicing, Jogging, & Joyful Living
Well, today is Day 17 of my spring cleanse and I'm feeling much better! Last week, I had a case of the sniffles...and congestion, and well...it sucked. I don't get sick often, but I also feel like the cleanse may have been pushing toxins out of my body - and they came out in the… Continue reading Chicken Stock, Chilly Days, & Cleansing
In leu of events that have occurred in my life & close friends' lives, as well as the changes happening in our society, I wanted to write about motherhood, womanhood, life, and death. I'm not going to talk about my and my friend's personal experiences in this subject...but I'm going to say that there is something about… Continue reading Mindful Mothering, Living and Dying, & Accepting
Today is Day 11 of the Bepure cleanse and I’m feeling pretty good! I was traveling this past weekend, to celebrate Passover with my family in Washington, D.C. Normally, I do really well with traveling, but I was a little more tired than usual and got a good 10 hours of sleep last night. I… Continue reading April, Adrenaline, & a Lovely Afternoon!
Happy Spring… & let’s get ready to cleanse! As I prep for my spring cleanse, I try to get ready for 3 weeks of growth, change, and health improvements. Right now, I’m feeling pretty good but I have been having slight issues with acne for the past few days. I hope that adjusting my diet… Continue reading Prepping for a cleanse – Happy Spring!
