7 Ways to Cultivate Positive Energy

how to cultivate positive energy

I just finished reading The Energy Bus based on a random Facebook recommendation. It was life changing. Not in a new info kind of way, but in a reminded perspective. Life is energy. We are energy. Energy can take form in many ways – behaviors, relationships, things, money, food, sex – all of it is…

Fit Foodie Bloggers I Love to Follow

fit food blogs

Lately I’ve been getting into a rut with my dinner meals at home. BBQ fish, shrimp curry or gluten free pizza. That about sums up everything I’ve been making lately. I consider myself a pretty good cook, so it’s not for lack of skill or creativity, I just needed a food muse. So, Mr Google…

Lentil curry stew recipe

VEGAN, GLUTEN FREE, LENTIL CURRY STEW

If a Californian tells you it’s going to rain, they’ll do so with a big sigh like it’s the end of the world, quickly followed by “oh, but we need it”. Seriously, we all do that. Yes, California is sunny and gorgeous pretty much all the time. I wear flip flops in January and I…

Creating a better story of your life

create a better life story

I just finished reading A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: How I Learned to Live a Better Story by Donald Miller. It was a 10 ten recommended life changing book by Michael Hyatt. I’d say he was on the mark with this choice. Without getting into a full on book review (I’d recommend you go grab…

Why Bikram Yoga May Not Be For You (or for me at least)

bikram yoga class

I feel like something’s missing from my at home yoga experience. I feel like I’m copping out on the communal woo woo piece, so I’ve been exploring some of the studios in my area on weekends just to mix things up a bit. That’s how I ended up at a Bikram class. Bikram is a…

Did I ever tell you about the time I went to India for 3 months to study yoga in an ashram? Yeah, I did that. It was 2008 and I was on a mission to “find myself” after losing my mom. It was my woo woo phase as I mentioned in a previous post. In…

Your Gut + Your Happiness

Gut health and happiness

More and more I’m coming across evidence that gut health impacts our overall quality of life, particularly our emotional health. Anecdotally, from childhood to about the age of 40 when I really started to look at my diet differently, I’ve had digestive issues. Gas, bloating and severe constipation was my normal. I didn’t realize there was anything…

Do You Woo Woo? A Cynic’s Guide to Manifesting

Do You Woo Woo?

I’m not very woo woo. In fact, I had a good laugh with a fellow non-woo woo entrepreneur last week as we tossed woo woo buzz words back and forth like “I’m holding space for your emotions” or “conscious uncoupling”. I mean, what exactly is conscious uncoupling? A new and loving way to divorce? This is…

Quinoa Crusted Eggplant Pizza

This one is inspired by Purely Elizabeth. As a food entrepreneur myself, I’m inspired by Elizabeth’s efforts to create a memorable brand that really speaks to a particular lifestyle. She’s rockstar status in my mind. So much so, that I saw her at the Natural Products Expo West last year and felt a little too…

Embracing “less is more” when it comes to fitness

IMG_5263

So far, 2015 has been physically humbling for me, I started off the year with weird back pain and nerve issues, then after exhibiting at the Fancy Food Show for ProCakes just two weeks ago, I got a wicked cold which is lingering on. Both of these events have kept me out of the gym…
