It’s been a while…but right now is the perfect time for another lesson for us from the ever-wise, all-knowing nature. This time, we’re being called, reminded, to appreciate all that’s coming to life and surrounding us during this season of growth, renewal, new things, ideas, and inspiration.

How to Eat Healthily, Simplified

Juliabeautiful, earthy, glowing, goddess, nourished, organic0 Comments

It seems to me that eating well and being “healthy” stresses people out and confuses us quite a bit. This makes me sad to see, because it’s so unnecessary, and this stress/guilt completely sabotages all the healthy habits we already have going on.
