Join me on a campaign for real food!

Why do we collectively in the highly-advanced, developed World seem to be so seduced with fancy packages and graphics?  Those processed 'natural' bars still can't compete with the vast array of natural benefits from a wholesome fresh and organic produce lifestyle and should be consumed in moderation only and is no substitute for a healthy / balanced lifestyle(very handy when you're out and about with nowt to eat). They're still processed food and mass-produced in a factory(albeit a smaller and ethically-aware one).

The best fuel for mind, body and soul nourishes, hydrates, strengthens and sustains are cells, brain and structure.

The best fuel gives us valuable oxygen to bring life into all our cells

The best fuel remineralizes our physical structure

The best fuel balances our hormones(think green:)

The best fuel strengthens and supports

The best fuel nurtures our brain, organs and glands

The best fuel dispels negative thoughts and makes us naturally-happy

Today's delicious brunch smoothie: young spinach, organically-grown and locally-sourced conference pears, germinated almonds, juice of 2 limes:) Namaste!

Intentions, Intentions, Intentions(Let's Begin:)!

I fully intend to be my true and authentic self this year. Let us begin with fuel and eating fuel I really and truly love:

and STOP consuming foods I don't really enjoy ie cooked / processed food: long grain brown rice, cooked lentils, miso, tamari, nutritional yeast etc. One man's food or 'medicine' can be another man's 'poison' in the same way, one man's trash is another man's treasure' .  I will eat to nourish and sustain. I enjoy and thrive on water-based(I'm a crab after all:) foods so the simplest creations in nature will suffice(no dyhydrator for this one,  I wouldn't mind a Vitamix thought:). I eat what I eat because it's empowering and it keeps me strong(yeah baby:)!

Happy New Year!

January 3rd The New Year

Choose which habits you are going to destroy in the New Year. Make up your mind about them and stick to your decision. Resolve to give more time to God: to meditate regularly every day, and on one night each week to meditate several hours, so that you can feel your spiritual progress in God. Resolve that you are going to practice Kriya Yoga regularly and that you are going to control your appetites and emotions. Be a master!
