Kitchari – One Pot Wonder

by KalaLea on April 29, 2017 • Posted in Recipes

Spring has sprung.
Time to detox and dedicate time for your body to recharge and renew.
One of my favorite detoxifying meals seems akin to the chartreuse leaves that are bursting forth from branches to herald spring’s glory.

Kitchari is an Ayurvedic porridge made simply with mung dal and rice. Its ideal to use shelled mung beans because it cooks very quickly. Mung beans have been used for centuries as medicine as well as an important

life of spice

by KalaLea on February 14, 2017 • Posted in News

There was a time when spices were one of the most valuable and traded commodities in the world. As far back as 3500 B.C. Egyptians used multiple spices when preparing fish, game or grains. Spices were also used for healing various ailments and illnesses. For example the paste of coriander seeds was massaged into stiff or painful limbs to provide relief. I’ve also read that coriander was considered an aphrodisiac. Oh la la. ♥

building immunity

by KalaLea on February 25, 2014 • Posted in Blog News Preventative Health Care

God forbid, but just think if you had to have emergency surgery tomorrow, are you strong enough to be under the knife? If you had to run for your life, how far could you go without passing out? Are you equipped for marathon love making, let alone a marathon? Can you watch over a room full of sick children and return home symptom-free?

How well is your immune system functioning this season?

So far I’ve managed

Saxon + Parole

by KalaLea on February 14, 2014 • Posted in Kala's Favorites

Next week begins Restaurant Week in NYC! So much of my time in New York revolves around eating GOOD food and spending time with GOOD people. When freelancing in the city, I find myself on the hunt for a decent lunch under fifteen dollars so when BG (the nickname for my good friend) told me about the soup and sandwich special at Saxon + Parole, I invited a friend to meet me in NoHo

to tell a lie

by KalaLea on December 29, 2013 • Posted in News Practicing Awareness
Imagine a world where people told the truth. Where honesty held court no matter the circumstance or consequence.
Would we be less fragile or more crazy? Would more people be their “true” selves? Un-afraid of ridicule or judgement? Would there be a need for Santa Claus?

Many moons ago, I used to catch myself telling lies:
Yeah, I’ve heard about that book.
I used to be the smartest girl in my class.
I’m sorry I’m late

  • No words. No filter. #zanzibar #sunset #peace #goodnight #wdiet #africa
  • Stone Town, Zanzibar is a beautiful hectic island with loads of character and spice but I'll admit it, the food at the night market gets only one star for hustle and charm. The food is far from fresh. However, the location is GORGEOUS BUT it's basically for tourists. Now I know! Feel free to share your local restaurant recommendations? #stonetown #zanzibar #nightmarket #africa #wdiet #winterindar
  • Some roads are bumpy but hold tight and trust that you will get to your destination in due time. Early morning ride in a bajaj - it's a travel day for us! Happy Back to Work Day to some of you. Stay cool as cucumbers 🥒 on a hot summer day 😎 #Africa #daressalaam #tanzania #transport #hydrate #wdiet
  • First time drinking baobab juice from the Baobab tree. It's a bit grainy with a tinge of tart and sweetness. The mighty Baobab tree can grow up to 90 feet tall for approximately 500 years. The powder from the fruit is rich in vitamin C, high in protein, potassium, calcium and magnesium. The fiber helps maintain healthy bacteria in the gut too and can tackle dysentery. #daressalaam #baobab #healthybody #healthyliving #healthyeating #africa #healingfoods
  • Yesterday after a swim in the Indian Ocean, I fell fast asleep right here. I could feel the earth laying hands on me. I awoke wearing a smile of gratitude not only because I'm surrounded by beauty but because I am healthy and free. #givethanks #daressalaam #winterindar #tanzania #happysunday #wdiet #trees #winterindar
