Nothing naughty, really.
There’s no doubt that Santa likes it sensual.
SENSUAL FOOD that is!
Because it’s a holiday, and I want to make sure Santa stays jolly, I am posting this article a day early. He’ll appreciate it, and I’m sure you will too. Read on for a quick story. Merry Christmas!

I have a little story I’d like to share from just this past weekend. My husband Joe and I were filming a tantric kissing video for a good friend of ours. We demo the many tantric kisses, and just have a fun day being silly and sensual. One of the kisses is done with a piece of gorgeous fruit. We get close and “sensitize” the lips with the fruit, by lightly pressing and tracing both top and bottom lips. …
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. …
In lieu of the upcoming holiday, I’m publishing early this week! I want you to receive this special message before Thanksgiving, so that you have the opportunity to bring this knowledge with you wherever you go, to gather with loved ones this week.
Less than a week ago, my husband Joe and I sat down to watch Origins: Our roots. Our planet. Our future.
I’m not big on pushing my belief system on anyone. It’s always an invitation. I invite you to eat food that will make you feel amazing. I invite you to get in the kitchen with your lover and family. I invite you to vote with your dollars, and buy what makes you feel great-and supports the people who want you to feel great.…
Yes, it’s true! You can have free chocolate! Let me tell you a quick story.
This past Sunday, Joe and I were at the Palo Alto Farmer’s Market, having our usual blissful Sunday experience gathering Sensual Food.
On our mission to eat our favorite Oaxacan food before departing, we passed by two lovely women with a small chewing, mmm-ing crowd around them. We overheard one of them mention, “organic and sugar-free.” Our ears perked up. Joe glanced back and me and said, “organic and sugar-free.” I said, “I know!! I heard it,” and went to scope out the scene.
They were handing out samples of chocolate. The two lovely ladies had name badges on that read “chocolate researcher, PhD.” It was love at first sight.…
The holiday season is near and I have fond memories of Italian dinners. Did I forget to mention my Sicilian roots? How could I?! The Italian side of my family did big dinners for holidays with all of the works. You know, the meat and potatoes but with the mid-western Italian twist. Yes-mid-western Italians! We had the pasta too, of course.
When I met my husband, the Italian dinners got even bigger. I lived in South New Jersey where his huge Italian family would gather even more often, with even more food! I became even more familiar with Italian holiday meals. They were big and elaborate with an explosion of flavors and delicious aromas. We have moved to the West Coast, but believe me, they’re still going strong!…
This just in: Mysterious plates of unclaimed cookies strategically placed in a large number of American homes on December 24th!
Did your mother, or father leave a special treat near the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve? I’m not sure who told them what to leave for him but in my home it was always cookies or something classified as “dessert.” Surprisingly enough, my health conscious mother decided we should leave a few carrot sticks along with the chocolate chip cookies and rice milk. If you’re going to eat something sugary, then you must have even more of the healthy stuff. I think that’s about how it went in my home, growing up.
Santa Claus isn’t in great shape. Let’s face it. …
