For a while when I was in high school, and in my early college years, I was an activist obsessive. I wanted to take a stand on, well, everything. I wasn’t happy about fireworks and their effect on the environment. I’ve matured now and have learned that appreciation is a better emotion than anger. I’ll just appreciate the beauty of this spectacular day than be angry and fight against it. I’ve found even more ways to love Independance Day, which means that I am incorporating the holiday spirit into my meals. I truly believe that everyday should include a an explosion of tasty fireworks on the palette, but in honor of the fourth of July-we have a recipe to share with a little red, white and blue (and of course green too)!…

Did you miss it?
If you missed the webinar yesterday, you’re in luck!!!
It’s been recorded 😉 This webinar was so freaking powerful. Bethanne is full of incredible wisdom about optimal living. She delivered such tremendous value, I-myself was totally blown away. I am so excited to share this with you. I felt motivated, inspired, energized after this webinar, and I honestly could have run a marathon with that kind of fuel.

Every single thing that Bethanne said during this webinar resonated with me on the deepest level. Our message to the world is completely aligned and it’s no mistake that you’re reading this now.…
The Hurb…can you guess what it is?
Have you ever used a vending machine? What shiny little package shot out of the bottom? When you ate it, how did you feel?
A life-long friendship was birthed out of a moment when I really could have used a vending machine-but not just any vending machine, of course. In 2012, I was dancing for a band, called Durian Sex Cult, while they performed in Santa Cruz, California. An airbrush artist named Kelsea Ernst came to paint the dancers with adornments before the show, and I totally fell in love with her. While she was airbrushing black lace cuffs on my wrists, I was expressing my deep desire for something delicious to eat to my husband Joe, sitting next to me.…
Interview with Darya Rose, Ph.D
Here’s a special treat in lieu of this auspicious time…
it’s a NEW YEAR!
I’ve been waiting patiently (and screaming inside) to share this interview with Darya Rose.
Here’s the scoop:
Change is the only thing that’s constant in life, and if you’re in the flow, congratulations to you. I love evolving and changing. Stepping up my skills and learning new things. Food and relationships are so exciting because there is so much to learn. There are many elements to improve and shift-tweaks to be made, to unfold everything amazing that is yet to come. If you’re reading this, I’ll take a shot in the dark and guess that you’ve read some of my suggestions from 2014 and tried them out? …
Probiotic-rich Cheese recipe for your belly
Thanksgiving is over, but the Holidays have just begun! We’re in full swing now and it’s a great time to consider what’s going on in our guts. Yep. Totally serious. I want to talk about your gut. It’s a very important subject. The happy little guys (called flora) that helps us digest and assimilate our food can be damaged during holiday drinking and overeating. If you’re not doing either of these activities, bravo! If so, let’s get some probiotics in do some work!
This article from the lovely July includes a great recipe to use for the holidays. I don’t advocate using much dairy (because I’m all about high quality or none at all), but read on for a few tips if you’re open to going that route. …
3 Foods to avoid when traveling with your lover
Is this your first visit to LanaShay.com? If not, you’re already familiar with the concept of Sensual Food and what it is. To sum it up, it’s real food, food that is unadulterated, unprocessed, pure, clean, natural, and organic. If we want to get really specific, it’s local and sustainable too!
It’s just scrumptious, colorful food.
It’s pretty simple when it comes to identifying the opposite, however I don’t talk about it much. I like to focus on what’s desirable, as opposed to what foods to avoid. Though sometimes it’s necessary. Right now, I’m in beautiful, sunny, sweltering Mexico. The heat is more than enough to get me feeling uncomfortable midday. I make sure not to add any element of discomfort with certain foods (that are very plentiful here).…
Travel: 5 Lessons for International Sensual Foodists
As I zip around my house packing for a trip to Bali, via Japan; then back to Cali, south to Los Angeles, and onward to Tulum, Mexico followed by Burning man…I thought this might be an appropriate time to discuss being an international Sensual Foodist.
Last week, we ran though a concise list of the best food to pack for travel. The items I mentioned will, of course, only make it halfway through an international flight. Once we arrive, we’re on a mission, called organic veg for real.
Ms. Mckenna is also a Sensual Foodist, and thus, I am happy that she’s has these simple 5 tips to keep in mind while globe trotting.

Chew to avoid stinky embarrassment
Do you chew well? No really. Do you chew your food when you have a meal? Let’s be honest, we’ve all scarfed down a piece of pizza at one point or another. You don’t need to feel bad about it. There’s certainly a time and place for everything. I can tell you that I do not always pay attention to chewing. Sometimes, I’m gabbing away with friends or my lover and just enjoying the moment; somehow mindful chewing is temporarily neglected.
Just a few weeks ago I attended a course at CreativeLive and spent three incredible days with the lovely Darya Rose. I can’t say enough about her work and about how much I love her message. She’s not only a Foodist, she’s a total (self proclaimed) science-geek!…
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. …
