Loving Kindness for Life

Big Sur

{One of my favorite spots in Big Sur. I  need to get back there in 2014.} I attended a really special day long mediation with Jack Kornfield at Spirit Rock years ago. He’s a spiritual hero of mine. If you have any interest in meditation and mindfulness you might enjoy his books and teachings. He’s approachable and speaks in a way that really makes sense in our modern (crazy making) culture. He was on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday yesterday and it was such a delight to watch. You can catch the full episode of Super Soul Read More →

Holiday table

Happy weekend, friends. I’ve come across so many interesting stories, recipes and thoughts online lately. In the midst of the consumerism and crazy of the holidays there also seems to be no shortage of thoughtful and thought-provoking ideas online. I just had to share a few. If you’re looking for a break from the hustle, check them out. Healthy cashew date treats I plan to make next week.

I’d be happy to give or receive any of these finds. Some of them are things I Read More →

“When you know better, you do better.” ~ Maya Angelou I had planned on waiting to get through the holidays before posting about this. But it’s too important and I sense that what I’ve experienced over the past six weeks might help some of you as we head into the season of sugar cookies and champagne (two of my favorite things, by the by). For about a month in a half I’ve been actively cutting simple sugars and grains from my life. I’ve been a vegetarian for more than 25 years and I consider myself Read More →

Best Matcha Smoothie

Matcha smoothie

There. I said it. It’s seriously good and I highly recommend you all get on my matcha bandwagon. Full disclosure: I’m going on four weeks off processed sugar and almost all grains. And my energy level is THROUGH THE ROOF. This smoothie is such a delicious treat and I feel all kinds of super human after I drink it. Just finished one. Can you tell? Yeah? Alrighty then, let me break it down for you. Last year, Bon Appetit featured a recipe for a green matcha latte made with almond milk and a bit of Read More →
