Hello Beautiful Ones,

My recent interview with Brian, the passionate vegan, spurred some interests in the lifestyle. A good thing. However, a few people have made comments offline about their inability to stop eating meat and other non-vegan food items such as cheese and ice cream. After being a vegan for seven years, I totally get it. My belief is that not every one should lead a vegan lifestyle. Although, I can’t ignore the fact that

what to eat when flying

by KalaLea on November 29, 2011 • Posted in News Preventative Health Care

Flight attendants, please prepare for takeoff! All passengers must fasten your seat belts! On a recent flight from San Francisco, just as the captain made this announcement, the woman sitting next to me began to fart; silent ones mostly but I know it was her. At first, I was a little repulsed but then I thought back to my own gas-fest many months ago. I had eaten a huge bowl of garlic pasta with broccoli before

chewing

by KalaLea on May 4, 2011 • Posted in Kala's Favorites

Twenty minutes is not enough time for lunch. Today, that’s all I had between meetings and random tasks. I barely chewed my food and tonight I arrived home feeling bloated and heavy. Even after a Pilates class, gas bubbles are still trapped beneath my rib cage. At least that’s what it feels like. I’m almost certain it has everything to do with me not spending quality time with my lunch.

While reading the book, Apple Cider Vinegar: Miracle Health System, I reviewed the following sentence: Millions suffer from indigestion, which is aggravated by poor digestion and weak saliva juices. This causes distress: gas, heartburn, burping, and stomach bloating. I thought to myself, that’s been me lately. So the following morning, I added 1 TBSP of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar to my tall morning glass of water before drinking it down. I have been doing this

  • 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
