Have you jumped on the Celery Juice Train yet?

Have you jumped on the Celery Juice Train yet?

I am fascinated by this miraculous superfood healing protocol!

All of a sudden, I started seeing lots of instagramers posting about their celery juice drinking rituals and I was like, “well, I guess it’s time to try it!”

My friend Rhia, who is a yoga teacher and health consultant here on Cape Cod first started telling me about her celery juice drinking, fruit forward lifestyle about 4 years ago. She’s been following the Medical Medium, Anthony William’s protocol for over 9 years now, and actually works for him too so she’s got the full scoop!

The Simplest Daily Ritual for Optimal Health

The Simplest Daily Ritual for Optimal Health

One of my first posts ever was about the amazing magical healing properties of lemons.

Hot water with lemon has been a part of my life for the past 8 years now, and I honestly don’t think I’ve missed more than 3 days without it.

It is a daily reset, a cleansing act that creates optimum digestion and gut health.

Part of my morning ritual entails waking up, tongue scraping, brushing my teeth, neti pot nasal rinse and then hot water with lemon before breakfast - until now.

Step into Summer with these Smoothie Recipes

Step into Summer with these Smoothie Recipes

Happy Summer Solstice upon us! It's so nice to finally be seeing life again here on Cape Cod. As with the Vata (winter) to Kapha (spring) seasons of Ayurveda, where we naturally moved from heavy, heartier foods to lighter, more astringent foods to help us detox from the weight of winter, we now move from Kapha to Pitta (summer) season.

Smoothies are a great way to do that.

How to feel Lighter and Brighter

Have you ever noticed breaking out with pimples after a cookie / sugar binge? Or worse, feeling constipated? 

Take it to the next level, and have you noticed how much harder your workouts/yoga classes seem? And the weight gain. And the heaviness. Ugh.

It's the sugar, people. Our bodies don't like it, to say the least. But my mouth certainly does!

So, how to have your cake and eat it too in the New Year?

3 ways to simplify your wellbeing

I didn't even realize it, but for the last 6 months or so, I've been practicing simplifying my life even more than I could have possibly been before! I'm a big believer that routines and rituals support your wellbeing, because without self care there is no self love, and then we have nothing to give!

These practices are fool proof and simple, so there's no excuse not to take care of yourself!

Anti Aging Remedies

Anti Aging Remedies

About a month ago I started to look at myself in the mirror and think, 'wow I'm looking like I'm getting old!' I guess that's what happens when you're in your mid-30s! I don't know about you, but I plan on aging gracefully (and as naturally as possible)!

A Simple, Satisfying, Supercharged Breakfast

Inspired by my friend Natalie, who's a super cool Beach Body Coach with tons of awesome recipe inspiration, I amped up my vata-pacifying breakfast of almond butter and honey, and spruced it up with banana slices and bee pollen! The end result: Pure perfection!

Getting a Good Night Sleep

Getting a Good Night Sleep

If our nervous system does not get adequate nourishment, we slowly start to come apart at the seams. Ensuring that we get a good night sleep can help us keep our immune systems strong, peace in our environment, and a sense of safety and security in our surroundings.

Healthy Habits: Routines + Rituals

Healthy Habits: Routines + Rituals

So it made me realize that this is a great topic for some who are trying to create a healthy, happy lifestyle for themselves. Having a routine, or a ritual is part of our self care practices. Self care equals self love, so incorporating these practices helps us to really get in touch with ourselves, get to know what we need, tune in to what's going on and realize that if we can't take care of ourselves, we can't take care of anyone else. 

New Breakfast Delight

New Breakfast Delight

Good Morning! Breakfast was originally designed to 'break the fast' - 12 hours without food. So as you start your morning, it's best to eat something that's gentle on the stomach. Ideally, starting your morning with a cup of hot water and lemon to cleanse, and then slowly take in your 'spiritual meal', as Ayurveda refers to it.

How to Stay Balanced while Traveling

Flying across the country for July 4th weekend was harder than I remembered in years past. We flew in for Paul's cousin's wedding in Santa Barbara on a Friday and left on that Monday, and while I knew it would be a whirlwind, I didn't expect to be so exhausted by the end!

Summertime Self Care Solutions

Well, it's official, summer is upon us! As the sun reached it's highest point last week, marking the Summer Solstice, and the full moon pulled down towards us, we had a chance to align with the yin and yang within us and surrounding us. As we transition into the summer season, let's all remember to dance with this delicate balance.

Making Meditation Part of Your Everyday Life {Practical tips inside!}

Making Meditation Part of Your Everyday Life {Practical tips inside!}

Meditation and yoga is now being acknowledged by many doctors as THE best healing tool, because everything starts in the mind. Our subconscious thought patterns dictate the way we think, feel and act. Everything starts with a seed and those grow and manifest into fruit - whether it be beautiful and ripe, or rotten, it all starts from the same place.

An All Natural Sore Throat Cure

I cannot believe it, but I got a cold again! I'm very disappointed that I was sick more often than usual this past year, but I was reassured by my chiropractor that it is actually good to get sick every once in awhile so that your immune system has a chance to get stronger.
