The almond milk realization

“I think I’m getting old, learning makes my brain hurt.”

I seriously cracked up when my friend said this a few nights ago at her house warming party. I’ve found myself saying this same thing one too many times. She’s working with a doctor, in a new career, and she’s feeling the sensation of drinking from a water hose.  I’ve been there.  Have you ever experienced this feeling? It’s all coming in a bit too fast.

After two decades of dance, 13+ yrs of Yoga, and half of that time pole dancing, I decided that I wanted to dive into a new physical practice.  I wanted to learn aerial silks. Aerial totally gives me that adrenaline rush.  I admit that I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie. …

Raw Strawberry Cheesecake: Easter Dessert is here!

This is a special, holiday inspired recipe that I had to share, just in time for Easter.  If you’re making a meal, this is the Easter dessert that will be the perfect addition to a healthy cuisine!

Last week, Joe and I went to Gracias Madre (a Vegan Mexican Restaurant) in San Francisco, and something very rare happened.

I used to be a huge fan of dessert after dinner.  Since I’ve decided to quit sugar, the desire to even view the dessert menu has completely disappeared.  I feel so much more clear, and energetic now that I’ve ditched the sugar.  There are so many very apparent benefits, that I’ll be revealing all in a later article.  Even though I wasn’t keen on ordering dessert, I was sent a message from the dessert Gods that I should inquire about the selection at Gracias Madre.  …

Deliciously intoxicating drinks get me in the mood

Last night we had a family movie night.  My confession is that my favorite part of watching a movie is eating snacks while I’m watching.  It’s truly no secret, I am in love with eating.  My movie snacks have a few distinct qualities.  After indulging, I have to know that I’ll still feel fantastic and not like I ate a pile of rocks (have you ever eaten popcorn from the movie theater)?  They have to be fun, aesthetically pleasing, bite size finger foods.  I have a whole list of fun snacks that I stash in my purse when I’m going out to a theater.

We used to love this tradition that started when we lived in South Jersey. We called it “pizza-wine-movie-night.”…
