“the department set up a task force to help sex up the concept of conserving water”
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.…
I could actually title everything on LanaShay.com “x” for better sex. Ninety-percent of everything I eat and drink contributes to a healthy love life. This is certainly not an ego-trip, it’s fact. I’m preaching because I want you to feel good and experience sensual bliss too. If that’s alright with you, then read on.
This is a continuation from last week, when I ranted about drinking plastic flavored water. It was a sad moment when I ran out of water when I reached the top of North America’s tallest waterfall, because it was contaminated by my low-quality plastic hydration pack.
My husband Joe and I collect our water from a natural spring. We used to have an Aquasana filter on our sink, but learned after a year of using it, that it wasn’t delivering us the best source of pure water.…
Spicy Secret Series #2: Turmeric | by: July Westhale
Turmeric is the spice that keeps it flowin’…and what, exactly, does it keep flowing? Do, read on 😉
This bright orange spice is a member of the ginger family, and has been used for over 4,000 years to increase health and treat ailments. In Southeastern parts of Asia, it’s used to treat everything from gas to neurological degeneration.
Recently, turmeric has become popularized in the United States for its curative powers, which have been shown to counteract the damaging effects of the American diet. Used as a digestive aid for breaking down beans, proteins, fats, and grains, this miracle spice has been introduced into Western pharmacies to help maintain intestinal flora (which sugars, grains, bad fats, and antibiotics often destroy), as well as improving the elimination of toxins and purifying blood.…
Even though I totally love magazines, I currently do not receive any subscriptions. What’s perfect is the opportunity I have to read my favorite magazines every time I travel. They are conveniently tucked right in the seat back pocket in front of me. I truly love inflight magazines. They usually have unique articles about global cuisine, and exotic destinations-two things I can’t get enough of.
On our way to Bali this past summer, the words, “sex” and “drugs” caught my attention on the bottom right corner of United’s Hemispheres magazine. I don’t see these two words often while browsing these publications, so I had to read on (wouldn’t you)?
After I read the very short two paragraph blurb, I nudged my husband Joe and gave him an enthusiastic look while I pointed to the article.…
Spicy Secret Series #1: Cinnamon | by: July Westhale
Remember “How snacks can save your marriage?” Well, that moment when your blood sugar drops and you’re ready to chew on your own arm, cinnamon is a quick and easy trick!
Research has shown that two teaspoons of cinnamon the night before a blood glucose test can drastically alter the results. As a long-time hypoglycemic, I always carry cinnamon supplements around in my purse-arsenal for times of low blood sugar, since it’s a well-recognized quick-fix.
For hundreds of years, the spice has not only been used to solve a hangry-arm chewing catastrophe, it’s also used as a remedy for muscle spasms, to vomiting, and just for the common cold, or loss of appetite, stomach upset, and inflammation that contributes to illnesses such as arthritis or chronic pain.…
Let me fill you in quick. My husband Joe and have been studying with Freddy Zental Weaver and Elsbeth Meuth, the founders of TantraNova for nearly five years. We have the privilege of assisting them, as they lead couples through a week-long workshop at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California. I believe in Karma, as does Joe-who mentions that ours must be exceptionally good, to be doing this work in this freaking incredible location. It’s true. It’s really incredible. We get to hang out in paradise for a week, and are fed the most delicious and nourishing food I’ve ever tasted. Every day we have conversations with new friends, that share the desire to discuss global or universal concepts (engage highly stimulating conversation).…
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.…
