The secret to satiety. We'd all love to know. When is enough, enough? And how can we feel fully satisfied and nourished with 'enough'? You'll be surprised to learn that it's simple really ... and, well, actually maybe a little complex.
Light. Fire. Intensity. Heat. Summer is here! The days are longer and the sunlight a bit brighter. The garden is bursting with fresh produce and so many amazing flavors to savor! We're outside. We're active. We're gathering with family and friends. We're traveling. As our habits, routines, and nourishment ebbs and flows with the seasons, we'll have abundant energy and an equally abundant sense of calm. We'll continue to flourish this summer season as we stay hydrated and cool, mellow intensity with relaxation, and ground our energy.
The Summer Solstice was ever inspiring and nourishing! Let's keep those intensions strong and our nourishment seasonal and delicious. We're active around town with pop-up's - look for us! And we're blogging about change, willpower, optimizing nutrition, capitalizing on seasonal flavors with recipes and much, much more! We're traveling a bit too - see where we've been. Drop us a line! And come see us at the Farmer's Market in July! Five Fridays of green goodness with salads, protein bowls and fresh-pressed juice!
Let's jump into the season with both feet! Enjoy the renewed sense of energy and motivation Summer brings!
We welcome Spring! Gentle rains soak the land. The earth itself seems heavy with moisture and the landscape is a wellspring of life! Spring is a season of birth, new beginnings, renewal, and growth -- a time for the earth to manifest the latent potential within all things.

We sense a natural opportunity for a fresh, clean start. Our bodies are primed to lighten things up, cleanse and rebalance. Come celebrate the season, a renewed sense of joy and inspiration, as the Spring equinox is upon us! (read more)
After a great start to the New Year, we’re refreshed and recharged. Maybe you’ve found some new habits that are working well and have brought forward those that have worked in the past and have found them a place in your new routine. For all those who have taken on a lot in terms of change during January, it’s now time to start to transition into a daily routine that continues to energize and feed you – body and spirit! If you’ve taken a BIG step, you may be wondering what happens next as the hoopla of the new year has quieted down and life has again presented itself along with all its daily challenges? (read more)
If you’ve been following along, January is all about habits and change. We now have embraced our “why” in regard to making changes to hold on to for the long haul. And we’ve taken inventory of what habits serve us well, the one’s we want to keep around. We even have a better idea of how we each individually perceive change and better yet, set good habits in motion that we can more easily keep in our repertoire for the long term. Our challenge now is in keeping up the motivation we initially felt as a new day dawned on January 1st. Are rewards the way to go? And if so, are there different ways to look at a reward system? Let’s explore: (more)

So let’s figure out what’s not helping you sparkle and throw these habits in the bin for good! We need to add some new habits in their place that serve us well. It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach no matter how hard the hawkers of the newest revolutionary diet work to have you believe. It’s one level deeper. It centers on how we all relate to expectations.

And we eagerly look forward to that clean-slate moment when the holidays have passed and everyone is back in action buzzing with renewed energy and motivation!
