When I introduce myself as a “Sensual Foodist” I usually get a reaction, followed by a question. What the hell does that mean? Ever heard of this definition? Presenting something in a more interesting or lively way? I like to talk about food in a more interesting or lively way. It’s just how I feel. I’m passionate about it. I’m passionate about putting something in my body that helps to make me feel amazing-inside and out. Yes, it’s about the sex, too.…
What’s the most excited you’ve ever been while eating? Think of that time. Could you barely get the food in your mouth fast enough, or were you taking all of your sweet time to savor every bite because you just didn’t want to finish? Was it the greatest moment ever? Have you ever had one of these with food?
At Burning Man-just a few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to spend time with a few of my mastermind sisters (a group of incredible entrepreneurs who support each other in current endeavors). Joe and I were sitting, having tea-at the Full Circle Tea House, and I saw one of my girlfriends pop her head in. I rushed over to hug her and noticed that all of my mastermind sisters were in less than a 10
foot radius at that moment.…
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)!…
What did your grandma tell you about the opposite sex? What about relationships and marriage? My grandma taught me a lot of things that I need to unlearn to be quite honest. Yet, there’s so many things that my parents, and grandparents taught me that I believe was so important. There’s always a deeper meaning if you care to dive deeper into their words. As humans, we continue to evolve, grow and expand, but I know one thing for sure made sense; and my husband’s grandmother told him on the phone when he spoke to her on this past mother’s day.

For me, this has held true. Maybe it’s my connection to the Italian traditions and the emphasis on family.…
Have you ever seen an invention, and said to yourself, “Hey! I thought of that years ago! Why didn’t I act on it?!” I feel like this is so common in our world today, and this same scenario goes for business as well. When my husband Joe discovered the Food Babe, I totally had this feeling. Why wasn’t I courageous enough to start speaking about the food industry publicly? What was I waiting for? How could I withhold this information for years?! This feeling only lasting a brief moment, because I instantly fell in love with Vani Hari, the Food Babe and decided that the only and best option was to join the food babe army. I was so excited about what she is doing, that I felt compelled to stand on my desk and clap as I read through her blog articles, and watched her videos exposing the food industry.…
Let’s go back to a time, not too long ago, when we first moved to California. I don’t do this too often, just once in a blue moon, or maybe just a new moon (did you know it’s less than a week away)? I used to write poetry, and I think that creative spark just tried to poke it’s head out. ha!
When Joey, Joe and I first moved to California, I fell madly in love with food. Can you believe it? I was honestly a sensual foodist before arriving to the West Coast, however, my love has grown deeper and yet more simple. At one point, I tried on extreme veganism, then moved more toward vegetarian, and now I’m feeling the need to live without label that everyone has seemed to have tried on themselves once upon a time.…
When was the last time you had a disagreement with your partner? Maybe you’re in a tense moment right now? If so, no need to fear-your answer is here! Yes, each situation is unique, and I honestly have no idea what the argument is or was about. What I do know is what happens between Joe (my husband) and I. The topic is agitating in the moment, and 99 times out of 100, I find that I didn’t really need to get heated-and the subject is irrelevant in the grand scheme of life.
It really doesn’t matter if you’re married, or have been dating for some time, disagreements are almost always temporary. Yes, they can get crazy and out of hand, or just be small and infrequent, either way they’re never fun. …
When you’re feeling amazing inside and out, how does that affect your relationship? Conversely, how does a groggy, bloated, tired day affect your relationship? One thing that is incredibly important in my relationship is feeling really great when we’re together. You too, right? It’s so much easier to have an outstanding relationship-with anyone-when you feel so damn good that nothing can get you down.
What makes me feel that good? Sunshine and tasty food are pretty high ranking on my list. This week I’m in beautiful Hawaii, and my love, Joe is back home in California.
Even when we’re apart for a short trip like this; less than a week, we can connect through food.
I’ve certainly shared that one of our favorite things to do together is find delicious food while traveling around exotic destinations.…
FREAKING elated. Yup. That’s what I was during a class I attended at Rainbow Grocery Cooperative in San Francisco. This class drew me in with the saucy subject; Libido and Sexual Health. “Poop,” as you may have noticed in the title of this post, is a bold way of referring to digestion. I will expound more on this topic in following posts! The main topics of the class were as follows:
- Which foods boost and which foods squash your sex drive
- The connection between your mind, heart and libido
- Understanding the role of hormones
- The role of stress and mood on your sex life
- Herbs that support libido and sexual well being
The three presenters, Sara Reed, Marisol Kim, and Sara Jane Gorman delivered such intriguing and useful information that I was literally on the edge of my seat, while attempting to take notes at lightning speed.…
