Big City Dreams, Hippie Ideals

Nourish {nur-ish}: to sustain with food or nutriment; supply what is necessary for life, health & growth. Feeding your Mind, Body & Soul are not separate. We need nurturing & nourishing to survive & thrive. We know the value of eating well & caring for ourselves. Let us help you embrace your soul & sustain your body.

You are making choices every day that support & nourish or harm & neglect yourself. There are hundreds of small decisions daily.  Let us help you learn simple, improved ways of doing the same old.  We offer inspiration to make small, healthful changes to support yourself, your loved ones, and your community; from hum-drum to heavenly.

We believe there is a creator inside each one of us. Creativity comes in many forms, and expressing ourselves through different mediums sets our souls free. There is such talent & beauty to feast upon, with much to consider as we navigate this world. Open your eyes, open your heart, open your mind, and create.

     ✊️✊✊✊✊✊ Join #women of ALL walks of life and stand up for #humanity in the face of fear and hate. Tomorrow, Saturday January 21, 2017 - 10 am - Jack Poole Plaza, #Vancouver, #BC. #loveoverhate #lovetrumpshate #womensmarchonwashington #womensmarch  Take a few moments a day to appreciate the #LittleThings. I promise, it'll be good for your#MindBodySoul ✨ #
     Getting my #MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) on! Doing an #edX course with The University of Queensland @uniofqld - The Science of Everyday Thinking. A super interesting course on why we think the way we do, how biases and judgment affect our subconscious, how decision are made, and so much more. #Psychology is endlessly interesting! Learning requires brain fuel - like homemade #hotchocolate with #organic #cocao, #coconutoil, #maplesyrup, #vanilla and #peppermint #essentialoil. Oh, and a giant #coconut #macaroon and some #blueberries don't hurt. It's Friday night, after all ‍  #TroutLake play date a few days ago. Now that it's warmer and raining, it's doubtful the lake will stay frozen! It was fun while it lasted though! I've lived in #EastVan my whole life, and have never seen this #lake frozen enough to skate on! #Nature offers something no matter the weather.
     Check out these beautiful #earrings by Design Æ made with Rock Elm  They look like beautiful tiny #mountains. They were a gift from my mom, Big City Hippie Carol.  #TurmericLatte aka #GoldenMilk & #MapleButter on toast = divine evening treat. Yes, I spilled some. Beware of that - #turmeric is very staining! I made this Golden Milk with #ginger, #nutmeg, true #Ceylon #cinnamon, #pepper, #coconutoil, #grassfed non-homogenized #milk, and #honey. Yeast-Free #Spelt #bread with creamy #maple #butter for dipping. Lots of #health benefits, lots of delicious, warming flavours.
     I much prefer cold and sunny over rainy and grey! At least you could #GetOutside and #GoExplore via #snowshoe! #tbt to the holidays! #❄️#☀️  About to start #ProjectCoherence #GlobalMeditation with @officialdrjoedispenza. It's live streaming this morning from #Italy. Thousands of people worldwide participate to elevate our global consciousness and help heal the world. We open our hearts and send love and light to the #universe. There is ongoing research to explore how this type of mass #meditation affects crime, violence and war, economic markets, and a variety of other things. A shift in energy can have a profound effect on us. Here's to #LightandLove ✨
     Be your own Hero. It's takes some getting used to, but being a #hero for yourself is easier than you think, and often leads to better #health for your #MindBodySoul, while simultaneously simplifying your life. Life gets simpler as you take care of your needs. #Stress levels reduce, #hormones get more balanced, your body gets fitter, your #diet improves, you have less on your to do list (except for fun stuff), your cognitive abilities improve, your #empathy and #compassion for yourself and others increases, your mood improves, you no longer have as many vices such as #drugs and #alcohol, you don't feel the need to escape your life, you learn more easily, you are more social, you have less #anxiety, you gain #confidence, your relationships improve, you #laugh more, you #smile more, you #love more, you become #mindful, your goals & work excel, you take off your many masks, you feel like the true you. That's a lot of changes from deciding to take your life into your own hands and create your own reality that makes your #soul soar. The time is now. ✨  Creating your own #happiness is the only way!

Healthful Oatmeal Latte

Healthful Oatmeal Latte

Oct 17, 2016 | No Comments

We are lucky ducks who got an espresso maker as a gift, and I use 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 […]

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 […]

3 Ingredient Skin Clearing Face Mask

Jan 26, 2015 | No Comments

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 […]
