     #Italy was struck with a 6.2 magnitude #Earthquake at 3am last night - our thoughts and hearts are with them, as families around the world wait for news of their loved ones, and rescue workers do their best to find survivors. The town of #Amatrice was to hold a large festival the following day, so there were a lot of extra tourists & visitors in the area as well. The town, voted last year as one of Italy's most beautiful & historic, has been flattened. We are thinking too of our own friends who have loved ones in Italy. I was lucky enough to be in Italy last year, and am thinking of the wonderful locals we met, and the gorgeous old towns we got to visit. This photo is from a small medieval town in the #Tuscany region called #Pienza. #🇮🇹 #VivaItalia  Repost from @yveehops of a brand new #mural in #Vancouver from the first @vanmuralfest that happened that weekend! Our city has exploded with #publicart, and we are so excited to explore the city and spotting it all! Thank you to the @cityofvancouver and all the amazing #artists for this burst of awesomeness!
     This NEWLY UPDATED chart shows who owns #Organic in the #FoodIndustry. The @cornucopiainstitute assisted Dr. Howard in this update to inform consumers of who they are supporting, even when buying organic - #BigOrganic exists, and it feeds into huge corporations.

     Here's my #apricot, #peach, #ginger, #chia spread on a piece of #Organic #Sourdough #Rye. #CoconutOil or #Grassfed #Butter underneath for some extra oomph, fatty acids & deliciousness. Oh - and a sprinkle of #cinnamon on top!  Cheak-ch-cheak-cheak-cheak-Cheakamus. The #Cheakamus #River in #Whistler is gorgeous! The air is so fresh, bursting with Negative Ions that cleanse the air, making you feel all sparkly inside ✨✨
     Morning sun on my fresh batch of #apricot, #peach, #chia, #ginger #fruit #jam / spread / topping! I took about 6 apricots and 1 peach, warmed them on the stove, then blended them in my lil food processor, adding a knob of fresh ginger, #HimalayanSalt, chia & cinnamon. That's it! Summer freshness in a jar (a few jars). #RealFood is #CleanFood is #SimpleFood. #TreatYourBodyRight for vibrant health, #MindBodySoul.  They be but little, but they be fierce. My little #garden #carrots that got hidden by mint, and the rows destroyed by my puppy. These were the survivors - not dressed up, just simply as they are, in all their carrot-y glory.
     Wowza — more gorgeous #JapaneseAnenomes in #EastVan // #HastingsSunrise for some Tuesday #flowerpower! We love #neature!  A beautiful print by @katieisadaisy ☺️

Easy-Over Egg with Nettles

Easy-Over Egg with Nettles

Mar 11, 2016 | No Comments

An easy over egg atop sautéed nettles with pesto, cheddar & spices on a multi-grain bagel. I think I could eat this organic vegetarian recipe daily! Stinging nettles (Urtica dioica) are an amazing powerhouse of nutrients. When raw, the tiny needles covering the nettles sting you with chemicals, but when cooked (or soaked), their stinging chemicals are released, making them safe to eat & handle! Nettles taste like a […]

Healthful Oatmeal Latte

We are lucky ducks who got an espresso maker as a gift, and I us it ALL the time. Well, I’m pretty good about moderation, so really I use it about 2-3 x per week on myself. I love making different flavoured, healthy oatmeal, and I love lattes, so I thought “why not latte flavoured […]

For those without “perfect” skin, you are always on the hunt for that next product to right all wrongs. Maybe it’s a cream, or a pill, or a detox. Whatever it is, it usually doesn’t last, and we are left searching & wondering all over again. We are our worst critics, and the stress of […]
