It is oh so simple but oh so good. Anywould would LOVE this. Adults, kids, people who don’t like to eat fruits and veggies, health freaks, EVERYBODY. It looks good and tastes better. I am drinking this right now before heading to work (after teaching morning yoga practice). You don’t even need a great blender […]
Who says vegan meals can’t be healthy and incredibly tasty? This is one of my dinners from a few weeks ago. My mom and sister were visiting and made this wonderful meal. You’re looking a lightly sauteed kale and rice curry, a shredded carrot – cilantro and seaweed salad, and a pumpkin and coconut soup!
Behold, the power of the Vita-Mix! I had a green smoothie after yoga class today. It consisted of one-half of a medium sized organic pineapple and 4 large leaves of dino kale. I strip the thick stem out of the kale, and just throw the dark green leaves in. This tastes really good. The sweet […]
Earlier this week, as part of the 40 Days to Personal Revolution program, I did a 3-day fruit fast. As I love to eat fruits, I was really looking forward to this. I considered it more of a fruit feast than a fruit fast! The picture above shows the entire array of fruits that I […]
I’m participating in 40 Days to Personal Revolution at my yoga school. This program, developed by Baron Baptiste, incorporates regular asana practice (6 days a week) with regular readings from the book, journaling/writing/reflecting, weekly group meetings with other participants, twice daily meditation and observation of certain dietary restrictions (for the sake of cleansing). For me, […]
I’m a big fan of smoothies in the morning. A while ago I wrote about my Raw Power Smoothie, an all vegan and mostly raw concoction that would keep me going most of the day. Nowadays, I’m in the groove of doing more fruits, mostly bananas, with some maca powder and a heaping tablespoon of […]
(Dr. T video on Chronic Fatigue) I’ve spent far too many hours this weekend pouring over content by Dr. Adiel Tel-Oren on YouTube through his Dr. T in 3 series, his free tele-seminars available on The Truth About Your Food and his website, Ecopolitan.com (a clever take on Ecological and Metropolitan). The Dr.T in 3 […]
I’ve been fascinated with the study of endurance for years. I am always amazed at people who are able to endure and outlast more than anyone else. In the case of endurance, the best study is through direct personal experience. In my own experiences of pushing my edge – whether through racing Ironman Triathlons, cycling […]
Those who don’t believe that you can be strong and healthy on a plant-based diet need to take a look at Robert Cheeke. Robert’s a good friend of mine, and is living proof that you can really achieve outstanding physical health as a Vegan.
I’m now enjoying the Green Smoothie you’ll see in these pictures. It never occurred to me to throw cucumbers or celery in the Vita-Mix, but after reading Anthony’s blog for a while and his comments about cucumbers being good for skin, I figured I would try it out. Celery is also a fantastic source for […]
I’m really into my blender drinks. I start out every morning with one, before work and even on weekends. I’ll add anywhere from 8-10 ingredients…a real mess of things. It’s tasty, organic, cleansing, energizing, alkalizing, hydrating, satiating and yes….I said tasty. My drinks get pretty crazy because of all the great stuff I throw in […]
…for 21 days 🙂 Read all about it on her blog. She is on day 4. Go Oprah! For her, it’s part of a cleanse that’s about cultivating a sense of more conscious eating. In addition to abstaining from animal products, she’s skipping caffeine, alcohol, gluten (wheat products) and processed sugar. This is actually way […]
