Mindful Mothers Day: Garden Love & Pesto Hints

Happy Mothers Day to all mother sentient beings! Originally I had planned for today’s post to be about kimchee, as a response to many requests and also my Mothers Day gift for 4 special ladies (Mary Ann, Dee Dee, Nancy, & Mum) who have nurtured and enriched my life in so many ways over the years. ♡ However, I managed to completely space out one of the most vital ingredients whilst revelling in the midst of the blissful chaos of this past week’s veganniversary/solar return activities. No ginger =...

In Memoriam

Despite an abundance of elaborate recipe shares and various documentations of food experimentation found on this site’s blog (as well as my alternative blog on Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook, & other social media profiles), most of the time I actually prefer the sweet simplicity of fresh organic fruit in rudimentary form during the peak of its season. Yesterday, on what would have been my dearly beloved Godfather’s 92nd birthday, I received a lovely surprise whilst enjoying some of life’s...

Liebster Award 2013

Okay, it’s been awhile since my last non-recipe blog update & for this I must apologise. It’s been something of a mad rush of guests & activity this Summer, so I lapsed a bit in my posting (as well as coursework, volunteering obligations, family stuff, etc.) and am now realising just how far behind I really have fallen with the blog… A couple of days ago I briefly glanced at my page on Facebook, only to find a slew of unread messages and friendly wall posts – one of which was about...

Ahimsa Providence: Evolution Through Stages of Compassion

This is my attempt at synopsis on how my “darker side” evolved over the years into development of philanthropic endeavours & eventual (ongoing) illumination.   Statement of Disclaimer:  This past Sunday marked my 23rd “veganniversary”. With that having been noted, I can neither clearly nor accurately remember a time when my life choices were not ruled by empathy, concern, and the desire to contribute to extension of joy toward all living entities. In fact, after nearly an entire...

Oh… My… Goodness! Life has been a bit of a whirlwind since Spring began & the new site was launched. Not only have I been experiencing a great deal of online influx for me to deal with (for which I am grateful), but also quite a bit more to do outside and within… As mentioned in previous posts, the majority of April was spent water fasting, cleansing, and re-entering the realm of caloric intake through extensive juicing. I was able to focus a great deal of energy on my studies (yet another...

Abstinence

This year will mark my 23rd “veganniversary”, and also my 7th full calendar year of maintaining an entirely raw diet. Over the course of time since having begun my transition into veganism in 1990, I have periodically chosen to alter my lifestyle in various ways for different reasons (which is essentially how I evolved to eliminate gluten, refined sugar, cooked, and acid forming foods from my diet). I am not actually a devotee of the 80/10/10 LFRV (low fat raw vegan) ideology (especially not since...
