Happy New Year!
How was New Year’s Eve for you? Did you set intentions or make resolutions? I love the energy of pivotal moments like 11:59 on December 31… Incredible shifts and transformations are swirling around in my life, and it’s taking some effort to embrace them. I am enjoying the idea of a clean slate as I dive into 2016.
Joe and I are in awe on a daily basis while PsychedelicTimes.com is rapidly growing and evolving. It’s taking energy and focus that we’re offering with anticipation. As if this wasn’t enough on the menu for this first month of 2016, we’re also nearing the launch date of a book I’m co-authoring! This means we are implementing some new hacks in the kitchen and condensing time, for a few meals each week.…
Then you can do it all over!
It may be a bit of a pun, but it’s not a joke at all. Today, I was on a conference call with a group of incredible authors (or authors to be). We’re collaborating on a book, with the focus as relationships. I can’t share much more, but I will say that I’ll be a published author next year, 2016!
This article isn’t about the book, it’s about the process, and what’s unfolding as I write the book. On the call today, one of the co-authors mentioned how I am conveying how the microcosm in the kitchen is the macrocosm of the whole relationship. In other words, what happens in the kitchen is a smaller picture of what happens in the relationship as a whole or on a daily basis.…
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.

Early last year, upon the suggestion of a complete stranger, I took a spontaneous trip to India.…
This week we have a special treat! A fellow foodie and lover of Indian food shares her recipe for Indian Dal and the art of cookin’ up love in the kitchen with her partner.
Indian Dal Recipe for Lovers | by: Mckenna Toston
Cooking is an art that fulfills me and keeps me grounded despite what’s happening in my world. No matter what stressful events my day might bring, a little time in the kitchen always puts a smile back on my face–especially when I’m in the kitchen with my partner.
After five years of collaborating in the kitchen, Vincent and I have mastered cooking together. I chop, he pours. I stir, he seasons. He flips, I plate. Those are the basics, anyway. …
Top 10 Sensual Foods
These are 10 superfoods that I like to keep stocked in my kitchen, as they are proven to ignite the senses, summon sensuality and provide the body with optimal nourishment.
- Raw Cacao
- Raw Almonds
- Goji Berries
Things to remember: all of these delicious foods are more potent and higher quality when grown organic. Organic farming promotes ideal soil conditions. By purchasing organic, you are voting with your dollars and asking for more nutrient rich soil and in turn, optimal nourishment for you and future generations! If possible, also have these powerful foods fresh, and raw.
Now for the good stuff. Let’s chat about the number one sensual food.
Delicious, sweet, moist, rich piece of yummy chocolate cake! How do these words make you feel? I love chocolate. I love chocolate cake. I love desserts. All of the time? Probably not. Most of the time? Yes.
I believe it was the day after my 11th birthday. It was either a blistering cold “snow day” in the Midwest, and I didn’t have school. I woke up and turned on the history channel-wait, I’m making things up now. I turned on MTV and went in the kitchen to find breakfast. Somehow, no one was awake but me. My favorite mornings as a child were the ones where the house was mine! I grabbed the few left over pieces of the chocolate cake out of the refrigerator from my birthday party two nights prior. …
