Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Positive thinking is great
it can help you survive the day
get you through tough times
but in the end all your emotions
will catch up with you and any little thing
can tip over the scale.
Once you harness positive thinking
it is important to connect those thoughts
with your emotions.
Because once you are really centered,
connected within, the nothing
can knock you down.
I came back from yet another stage from school and I just wanted to eat green stuff!
I also stated the insanity workouts and just to make my mom feel a little better I promised her I would have more "protein" so I soaked mung beans, black chickpeas and adzuki beans, 2-3 days later, I'm having the best, freshest, crunchiest sprout salad ever!
It is so nice to be able to eat a meal and at the end of it not have a feeling like you want to take a nap.
INTEGRATE WHAT YOU LEARN
NURTURE THE EARTH AND THE SELF
SAIL IN THE SEA OF GRATITUDE
POWER UP YOUR ACTIVITIES
IMPROVE EVERY DAY
ROAR WITH LAUGHTER
EMBRACE INFINITE POSSIBILITIES
It was three days of just watermelon and I couldn't be happier!
I had a good supply of watermelon for the three days, I wasn't hungry and my energies were up, I noticed the difference yesterday when the stock of papaya I had was limited and I was eating smaller portions, in the morning my energy was fine, went to school to do some paperwork and then worked in our garden - our herbs are looking pretty by the way! - but after lunch time I was really tired and took a 2 hr…Continue
Well after three days of cantaloupe I have to say it is important to be prepared.
Before this fast, at the beginning of June I did 2 sugar free weeks with a friend. It was harder than these few days on melon but also let my body prepare for this.
I have had "ok" energy levels. Last week was very active with lots of events and I noticed just once I was very grumpy but after a melon snack, the feeling went away. I'm taking a nap around 5 pm which helps to replenish…Continue
After almost a year in Italy, a month away of finishing my first year at the University of Gastronomic Sciences I have come to one conclusion: this is a school of gluttony.
This year we had 4 trips around Italy all focused on diverse products or regions where as obvious as it may seem we do for the food, to discover and experience many dishes and ways to produce certain raw materials.
However in these week long trips all we do from dawn till night is eat! we are offered…Continue
Who am I, what am I doing here, why do I have to behave this way, why is life so hard, how do I survive this, how do I change, how do I make a difference, why does it take so long, why do I feel this way...
Endless questions, endless answers
There are no answers, there are no truths
There is a time in life when we feel incomplete, when we…

Here is a quote I love that didn't fit in 140 characters.
"Change diet as exercise - that solution requires you to act, to have a discipline, to sense your own condition. It means to take responsibility and use your gifts and the temple of your body" - by Yogi Bhajan
Beautiful film on gardening, you can watch it on the website. Perfect example of a person living from the heart, being kind to nature and receiving the best reward.
"We are human beings, not human doings" - Yogi Bhajan
What I just finished devouring...
I found this book by chance at the public library, so happy I did! The Fasting Path is a book by Stephen Harrod Buhner, talks about fasting (focuses on dry, water and juice fasts) and even though it looks like a small book (only 190 pages) it's filled with amazingly useful information and gives you some insights as to what effects a fast has on the body, the mind/emotions and the spirit. Plenty of guidelines of what to do to…Continue
Is what I need right now!
I wanted to do a video for the end of week 2 of raw results but my internet connection hasn't been the greatest so now that I have time, I'll write a litte instead.
I haven't been having the greatest week and a half. I started great on week 1 and for some reason I'm just running to the opposite direction and (another reason I didn't make a video or write last weekend is because) I don't want to complain, I want to remain positive and keep the hope that…Continue
