The Ultimate Eco Diet

Embracing a natural eco-lifestyle is more than just shopping organic, it is a whole new approach to the way we choose to live. It is about making conscious choices on all levels and in all aspects of our life. Yes ladies, that even includes diet! Why? Because the more we align with a clean natural way of eating, the fewer resources are wasted. Simple as that!

But with all the latest fad diets out there, which is the healthiest and the most eco-friendly diet of all? Without a doubt it is the raw food diet. Not only is the diet pure and natural, but more importantly it is unprocessed and hence far more sustainable! Let’s break it down and see what the raw food diet is all about. Read more...

I love this time of year... what a perfect opportunity to dream and create a new vision for the year we welcome ahead.

It's become a tradition at the end of each year to dejunk and declutter my life, letting go of all negative energy, opening myself up to beautiful new experiences. I usually take this time to give thanks for all the wonderful opportunities of the previous year, and create a new theme for the year to come. What's my theme for 2010? Love.

The theme of love represents a mindset in which we can choose to approach life. It is the highest vibration at which we connect to all the beauty and magnificence of life. Love after all, is the heartbeat behind the natural flow of life!

To kick off the New Year, I'm also taking part in Shazzie's 10 Day World Juice Fast that starts tomorrow Jan 3rd. A juice cleanse is a lovely way to hit the reset button on our health, for a clean new start.

With a cleanse and lots of love fueling my New Year, some of my goals for 2010 include getting creative in my raw food kitchen, advancing my yoga practice, signing up for a local organic CSA buy in, and now that I'm getting ready to move into a new home with lots of windows and natural light, I plan on doing some indoor gardening with fresh organic herbs and sprouts.
