Cleansing, Creating, and SPRINGing Forward!

Cleansing, Creating, and SPRINGing Forward!

March 4th, 2014

Spring is a time of year that says "new", "fresh" "renewal". Its the time in nature when baby birds are hatching, animals are coming out of hibernation, and tender buds are emerging. The energy in nature is the same in us if we stay attuned. Change is happening as always. Its up to us how we respond. As we turn with hope from winter's introspection towards the sun's promise of warmth and the return to full color of our landscapes we also get a chance to celebrate our life affirming creativity.  Creativity is Spirit's way of working through us. TouchingREAD POST

Maca-Roons and Julie unfiltered on LOVE

Maca-Roons and Julie unfiltered on LOVE

February 24th, 2014

I am addicted to these raw coconut macaroons. I've tweaked my recipe once again enhancing them with these two Peruvian super foods I love. Maca is used for stamina, endurance, hormone balance, and did someone say libido? Yakon syrup, also made from a Peruvian root, is an amazing raw low glycemic sweetener. Check out more info on these amazing super foods and some pics from my 2010 retreat to the Sacred Valley and Macchu Picchu. The people and the land are magical! I hope to be leading another Peru adventure in the future. Please get on the list to be contactedREAD POST

Autumn Yin/Yang Yoga

Autumn Yin/Yang Yoga

December 3rd, 2013

This week I'm focusing on Movement. Its the most Yin time of year as we move closer to Winter Solstice-a time to stay moving and flexible. After your cardio or weights try these two yoga poses to stay open! Its the season to keep moving but be sure you spend time in stillness for balance of body, mind, and heart. Yang Pose is Cow Face bind. One arm up and reach down. Other arm down reach up and hold like Chinese fingers with "gang grip" for 5 breaths each side. Upper arm bones back and elbows in! Contract as you stretch. YinREAD POST

Thanksgiving Recipe With Navitas Naturals, Inspired By True Food Kitchen

November 25th, 2013

I'm incredibly excited to be sharing two of my most favorite brands with you that have inspired the ingredients for this seasonal recipe- just in time for Thanksgiving. True Food Kitchen, owned by Dr. Andrew Weil (my idol since early adulthood), is one of my most favorite restaurants. They have a seasonal menu and strive to use local, organic, sustainable ingredients. I had a salad there that is very similar to the one I am sharing today. I tweaked it a little. Navitas Naturals is an affiliate of mine and one of the largest distributors of organic super foods that come fromREAD POST

RHYTHM LIFESTYLE Tips For Autumn

RHYTHM LIFESTYLE Tips For Autumn

November 18th, 2013

Autumn marks the the beginning of a cycle of personal turning within; it starts September 22 with Autumn Equinox when nights darkness equals the length of the day. Nights become longer than days until Winter Solstice, December 21-the longest night. If we adapt ourselves to the changes of the seasons which are mere reflections of the earth's relation to the Sun, we maintain health. Maintaining a healthy state depends on the inward & outward balance of activities. Through daily discipline of inner directed attention and physical exercise we can create a more open, resilient and supple body and a mentally andREAD POST

Canning & Composting

Canning & Composting

November 12th, 2013

  My Canning Story I began canning or preserving food as a child growing up in rural PA where the winters were quite cold. My grandfather from Italy raised me and had a lot of land that we farmed and lived off of. One of the family favorites was his infamous Applesauce. He had two Macintosh trees but one died. We played on it and it provided apples for this prized sauce all throughout my childhood. Apples are near to my heart. When Puppa died in 2007, I aimed to take over the tradition of canning, particularly apples. I was living inREAD POST
