Divinely Decadent Avocado Pudding

Divinely Decadent Avocado Pudding

Sometimes I need to force my way through ease, like a bungling klutz, alcoholic binging set aside. When my body seizes up from the winter’s brazen rawness, I seek comfort. Sometimes in all the wrong places. But solace comes in many shapes and sizes. And today, I turned to my VitaMix. I craved something stimulating, […]

Berry Ginger Smoothie

Yummy early winter goodness, when fresh berries are not necessarily available. Thank you to The Well Daily for this recipe!:

Berry Ginger Goodness Smoothie (serves 1)

1 cup almond or hemp milk ½ avocado 1 banana 1 teaspoon spirulina 1 cup frozen berries of choice 1 teaspoon flax oil ½ cup coconut water 1 teaspoon […]

Watermelonade to the Rescue

Oh blazes it’s hot! Please note, I am NOT complaining … I’m just sharing.

Our home for the summer runs on an old electrical panel with old glasses fuses. This means that when we blow a fuse, rather than ‘flip’ / reset the breaker switch, we actually have to replace the old blown glass fuse […]

Nouvel Air

Before the mad rush of an intense day of travel towards Sudbury, slaDE and I decided to spend the day unwinding and enjoying the delights of Nouvel Air (a dropzone 1 hour south of Montreal). Our friend and host Michel Lemay treated us to a late evening last night of conversation. But we were knackered […]

Sprouting: A Healthy and Easy Lifestyle Option

One of my favourite tips for healthy eating on the road involves the task of sprouting. Sprouts are real living foods that are abundant in food enzymes, providing exceptional amounts of protein, easily assimilated vitamins A, C and D plus antioxidants, anti-carcinogens, minerals, nucleic acids, plant antibiotics and plant hormones – a whole of lot […]

Yoga and Healthy Living on the Road

With very little sleep and a lack of desired preparation for today’s ‘Healthy Living on the Road’ workshop, I was running on pure adrenaline in addition to being a wee bit nervous about standing up teaching about what I deem healthy choices in my life. slaDE was laid back and open to me being the […]

The Yogic Circle

To start the day off brilliantly, we decided that I’d offer to make Vita-Mix smoothies (in small sample cups — recipe Day #1 is published at the end of the post) for each of the students that turned up to class. I’ve always been an adamant believer in a hearty nutritious breakfast, and with the […]

Yummy Vegetarian Burritos!

When staying in Kitty HAwk, North Carolina, our driveway hosts offered to make us a lovely dinner. That night, with a sly grin on his face, David whipped out his handy dandy favourite cookbook, swearing by the recipes found in ‘The Moosewood Restaurant Low Fat Favourites’ cookbook. The Sweet Potatoes Black Bean Burritos were some […]

What is petroleum used in??

Continuing from my blog posting yesterday of our addiction to petroleum and the mess that’s been created in the Gulf, I wanted to break the discussion down in to a more tangible realistic portrayal of how oil is used in our everyday lives. And realistically, what can we do on an individual scale, as consumers, […]

Laundry Tips and Recipes

Being the change that I wish to see in the world is all about taking personal responsibility for the planet which we all share, love and call home. Because we live in a world (and climate) that necessitates clothing in our daily living, today’s tips and recipes focuses on how we can make a difference […]
