In honor of women, and celebration of National Women's Day I am reposting this amazing wisdom from one of my favorite sites - MysticMama.com Please visit there site directly for inspiration and loving guidance!
“When we heal ourselves, others are healed. When we nurture our dreams, we give birth to the dreams of humankind. When we walk as loving aspects of the Earth Mother, we become the fertile, life-giving Mothers of the Creative Force.
As the days darken earlier, one of my favorite places is the kitchen. Creating warm, belly nourishing meals for our family to enjoy. Fall and Winter are the perfect time to enhance delicious recipes and bring everyone to the table.
Triphala is an herbal concoction that’s been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda. Traditionally used as a bowel tonic, it’s often prescribed as a mild laxative. But while its laxative qualities are most widely known, the other benefits of this herb are perhaps even more noteworthy.
As Spring turns to Summer and our foods lighten up, I love to prepare some of the traditional festive meals for our family! These "sliders" are not only healthy since their baked, but full of flavor. You can make the falafel ahead of time or even freeze some for another day.
Grab a big mixing bowl and your food processor and let's get cooking!
We love ginger for so many reasons, and with our Spring Carrot Root's juice, we thought a spotlight on ginger would be beneficial!
Ginger's culinary qualities are a delight, but its health benefits are simply stunning. It has been shown to be more effective against bacterial staph infections than antibiotics. It can kill cancer cells. Its anti-inflammatory effects are already famous. It can resolve brain inflammations, and ease or cure a variety of gut problems, such as ulcerative colitis and acid reflux. And ginger can even alleviate the effects of gamma radiation. What's not to love about this incredible herb?
What could be more important than to love and feel love as you breath in and out in each moment? When we tune ourselves to the vibrations of loving self, we make choices from that high flying place where we care about our bodies, others, and our surroundings. Acting from a place of love impacts the entire world around us!
Our fire plays a crucial role in our health and well-being. How do we keep our inner fire burning brightly? The essential step is living life more consciously, making choices that nurture the flow of life energy, while minimizing those that deplete it.
Its winter, and here in the Valley it is warm when the sun is shining but as soon as the dark settles in it is Chilly! We've been craving spicy foods to warm our bellies at night and this recipe has now been a family favorite 3 weeks in a row.
Since its January, we have also received many call in's from our customers needing a juice boost while the flu buzzes around sunny california. So cheers to this little remedy that is inspired by nature and more necessary this time of year.

Recently the term, Mindfulness, has re emerged into my daily life thanks to several clients and a Wayne Dyer audiobook (tons of fun!) One of my favorite quotes from the book that has really made my last few days special, is to "think small, and achieve big things"...totally the opposite of how I usually do thinking in my life. When Dyer was asked how he had made such great achievements in his life, his response was "one small thought at a time".
In my own course of life, I have come to a core realization that has helped me reach my goals and dreams in any endeavor (be it at work, a personal goal, or in a relationship).
