Born To Move

by in General, Moving & Eating.

Diet Essentials (For Me): “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” – Michael Pollan In Defense of Food Enzymes: What you eat matters, the essential nutrients that your body actually receives, breaksdown, and digests are even more important. Enzymes are naturally occurring in all food, they are the bridge for nutrients from food to body. When we cook food we kill some of the naturally occurring enzymes, taking supplements with every meal will aid in digestion and absorption. I avoid Gluten whenever possible (unless it’s Pecan Pie): Vegetables, beans, legumes, fruit, animal and fish protein have been around for  millions of years. Grains for process and consumption, Less than 10,000. …

Write a letter and Make them write one back!

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

“To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart.”  ~Phyllis Theroux There is something alluring, electric about receiving a letter. It’s a lost art.

Lifestyle Dezine

LifeStyle Dezine

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

LifeStyle Dezine is a movement. A freedom, to just BE. It’s a way to tap into that global shift of consciousness. It’s necessary and vital. It’s yours, it’s mine, it’s everyone’s, and it’s no ones. It’s a philosophy. It’s going back to 1, to the basics. It’s the little things. It’s our dreams and nightmares. It’s shutting off our minds and rediscovering our guts. It’s a contradiction. It’s an understanding. It’s the rules of nature and the universe. It’s an apology, forgiveness, and acceptance. It’s reaching for the stars and keeping your feet on the ground. It’s turning money into love. It’s believing in abundance. It’s I love you, not …
