Gigi inspired me to start a thorough Spring cleaning from within. I attend the monthly Green Lodge Goddess gatherings organized by The Stoned Housewife and Luminous Collections and it brings together total babes mainly in the cannabis industry. I will have to post more about the power and connection these meet ups bring, but in April one of the women who spoke there was talking about how connected we are with the earth and it really resonated with me because I had been ferociously cleaning under the Taurus new moon and noticing that I feel best when I am following along with the stars and eating what is fresh and local that comes from the earth’s natural, seasonal cycles. So naturally spring is a time for detoxifying plants and cleaning all around and within.Read More
Anna and I are in spring cleaning mode. Cleansing everything from our closets, to our bodies, to any chaos that has broken out emotionally during a long winter trapped indoors. One of our favorite ways to shake off winter and gear up for the spring is to practice a detoxifying yoga series. Certain yoga poses can help stimulate circulation, increase metabolism, and aid digestion and lymph systems to help your body eliminate toxins the same way certain foods can.Read More
I’ve just rounded the corner into week three of my cleanse. After three weeks of mostly berries, veggies, and rice I am starting to reintroduce foods back into my diet. I have to say my first three weeks were not too bad. I have done really well with adhering to the restrictions of the cleanse but I did end up reintroducing animal protein a bit earlier then I planned on. My goal was to try and go without any animal protein until week three or four, however I completely caved last week. I’m admitting it because I made a rookie mistake and by sharing it with you hopefully you all can learn from me.
I don’t know about you but by the end of each winter I feel like my eating habits have gone to total shit. As a general rule of thumb I try to follow the 80/20 rule with my diet. 80% of the time I eat extremely clean and the other 20% of the time I eat whatever my little heart desires. I will never claim myself to be one of the healthiest eaters out there. I wish I could but I REALLY REALLY LOVE FOOD. I love the things that aren’t necessarily that good for me like cheese and fried foods. I am a pretty small girl so people so who don’t know me mock me when I tell them I love to eat.Read More
