♥ Canola oil: The #1 Hidden Health Danger at the Prepared Food Bar – Whenever I eat out (not often) and it happens to be at a Whole Foods bar, I always read the ingredient list of the prepared items and if I see “canola oil”, I sigh and keep moving on reading the next ingredient card till I find something that works for me.
♥ NEW MOON in Pisces March 1, 2014 – Astral insights from Mystic Mamma. I’ve been feeling a lot of the shifts already. Several lessons and gifts imparted. Be patient, compassionate and gentle with yourselves (especially others). Go with the flow and hang out with your Spirti/Soul for guidance along the way.
♥ How to Start a (Mostly) Raw Diet Without Shocking Your Taste Buds – A great article from Kimberly Snyder about how to transition and incorporate more raw foods into your diet without shocking your body or taste buds.
♥ How To Use Grounding To Deepen Your Connection To Earth, Yourself, and Others – I couldn’t agree with this article MORE! I have been wanting to write a post on this very subject – and I may just still yet. Enjoy!
♥ The Power of DIY Self-Care: A Directory of Recipes & Treatments – Some great DIY self-care recipes! I am going to start a new notebook with sections that cater to hair, body, face, and shower/bath. I’ve got a nice compilation of recipes that I make and use and always open to trying new ones. The “tried and true” are kept in the notebook. I do this with kitchen recipes. I will try many, but the “winners” make it into the notebook for return visits on the menu plan.
♥ Homemade Coconut Flour – I do this all the time and this post shows you how to do it simply. So easy to make and nothing goes to waste. I love making my own coconut milk (and Scott loves it in his morning coffee). It is great to use in smoothies, tonics, desserts, soups and more. The leftover flour is great for many recipes and I will sometimes add the leftover pulp from milk to the dog’s food bowls. So good and healthy for them.

♥ Ginger Detox Shot – Linda Wagner brings us another goodie! Oh, this is for the brave of heart! It is intense, but OH SO WORTH IT! The ingredients pack a powerful punch and act as an anti-inflammatory, anti-infective, antioxidant, lymph system cleanser and more. I love doing these shots!
♥ I Was A Raw Vegan For More Than 3 Years Because I Was Insane – This is an interesting article. I have to agree with the writer, Sami G, that we are all biochemically different and what works for me might not work for you and vice versa. What works for us will be different at different stages in our life, our activity level, our emotional level, the seasons, etc. It varies day to day. Appreciate, love, and enjoy every bite of your food. The point is to have a healthy relationship with food. Make the best choices for yourself and family and don’t fall into guilt, shame or unworthiness based on what others are doing. Learn to be open, compassionate and non-judgmental of others – but especially with yourself. Check out this article by Sami G : Speak Your Truth, Forgive and Move On.

Also, another reminder to reduce and find healthy ways to manage stress in one’s life.
