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

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 […]

Autumn Falls Upon Us

Today is the first day of Fall / Autumn, a time for inner change and harvest. Think ~ colours-of-the-sunset harvest vegetables, abundant earthy goodness and sturdy flowers (sunflowers!!!). Where Summer is about spontaneity and letting loose, Autumn, for me, is a time to reflect and do some deep inner housekeeping. Routines start to take […]

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 […]

Alumapalooza 2011 Final Day

What a full big day! With so many interesting opportunities to pursue today, I was torn between teaching our morning yoga class vs attending the SWAP Meet (think large flea market / garage sale, oriented towards RVers). slaDE was happy to lead the morning class through an hour of breathing and stretching. He even made […]

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 […]

Gastronomical Delights

Our last full day with visiting our friends Patrick and Ann Egan here in Sarasota. And the adventures continue! Morning yoga enlivened our waking bodies before attending to a piece of citrus heaven.

We made a trek out to Mike’s homestead (Patrick’s brother) … 10 acres of burgeoning citrus trees waiting to be plucked […]

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, […]
