Chocolove Almond & Sea Salt bar

by KalaLea on November 6, 2011 • Posted in Kala's Favorites

I’ve been sitting at my desk trying to find one word to describe this incredible chocolate bar. HEAVENLY comes to mind. SINFULLY GOOD but that’s two words. BELEZA! Brazilian Portuguese for TOTALLY COOL & AMAZING. Yeah, that’s it.

Timothy Moley, Chocolove founder has eaten two chocolate bars every day for the last ten years. He must be a special guy because his Colorado-based company has excellent customer service. A real person responded to my email, leaving

Harmless Harvest Raw Coconut Water

by KalaLea on October 17, 2011 • Posted in Kala's Favorites

It’s embarrassing to admit that I haven’t really worked out for over 5 months now. Yes, I ride my bike super frequently and walk just as every other crazy New Yorker, but I haven’t made any effort to exercise since long before the raw food cleanse. This is going to change this week and my main concern is rehydration.

That’s whereย Harmless Harvest 100% raw & organic coconut water comes in. I can’t take credit for

eat lots of kale

by KalaLea on October 8, 2011 • Posted in Kala's Favorites

One of the goals of Why Did I Eat That? is to:
MAKE KALE A HOUSEHOLD NAME.

Kale is in a league of its own. A mega-super star among vegetables, sort of like Prince, Madonna, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, the Beatles, Aretha Franklin & Michael Jackson. Like major! If I had to pick one veggie to grow, I would choose kale. My love of kale began in 2003. It wasn’t love at first sight, more

giving thanks to food workers

Remember the school field trips to your nearby farm? Live demonstrations of farmers milking cows. Not sure if these outings are hosted by public schools anymore but many moons ago, when I was a little wee lady, a few students in my elementary class were selected to milk a cow. I can’t recall if I volunteered or not but I didn’t have the opportunity to milk then, and still don’t know how. Fast forward to adulthood.

Eat with JOYFUL awareness

by KalaLea on September 24, 2011 • Posted in Kala's Favorites The Act of Eating

Life should be pleasurable — without the feeling of guilt and stress. My recommendation to those of you who worry about being fat or becoming overweight. DON”T FRET OH BEAUTIFUL ONE! Stress and worry can cause over eating. Over eating will result in weight gain. Worrying about weight gain can keep the weight on. Round and round. Stress. Eat. Worry. Eat some more. We all know when we’ve gone overboard. If you’re eating with joyful awareness,

Seaweed

by KalaLea on September 10, 2011 • Posted in Kala's Favorites

We are water, more specifically, we are of the ocean. Mysterious, abundant, complex, interconnected, and full of life. That’s why eating seaweed makes sense to me. The ocean is loaded with minerals such as, potassium, iron, calcium, iodine and magnesium; therefore, sea veggies are concentrated with the same. Eat seaweed to maintain thyroid health, aid in digestion, regulate hormones, and detox from various pollutants and harmful metals.

Over 9,000 species of seaweed have been recorded worldwide

  • During my farm stay in Bahia, Brazil years ago, I read the 1977 book, How to Save Your Own Life by Erica Jong. The other day I came across the notes I copied from the book: 1) Renounce useless guilt 2) Don't make a cult of suffering 3) Live in the NOW (or at least the soon) 4) Always do the thing you fear the most; courage is an acquired taste like caviar 5) Trust ALL joy 6) If the evil eye fixes you in its gaze; look elsewhere 7) Get ready to be 87 years old. So splendid. Happy Free Friday!! #selflove #sunshine #books #1977 #ericajong #ridingthewave #onlyyoucansaveyourownlife
