Thanks for sharing this and reminding me to practise mindfulness. :)
Mandie Fae -Jul 29, 2014, 2:24PM
My body is highly sensitive to what goes into and I've learned ways to balance my reactions to substances that it may not respond well to. Such as if I've given into a sugar craving and crash, I've found that eating a fruit can balance me and I don't feel grumpy or lethargic. And even better, I know that usually if I have a sugar craving, simply eating a fruit will fulfill that need for me :) I'm also affected by seasons, in summer I can not consume caffeine as it makes me very lightheaded, but in the winter I rely on it to get me through my day. Bodies are wonderful and they know so much, listening to them is truly the best way to care for yourself. Thank you for this post <3

Try substituting the goat cheese for a smoked blue cheese. It will blow your mind! Also if the texture is not to your liking try fig jam! Goes great with Spanish cheese. R

I love these, especially the idea of blueberry, lemon, and rosemary. I would have never thought of rosemary for infusion. Can't wait to try it!

Thanks alot for this post! I've been trying infused waters for about a week now. i set it up at night so i can drink it first thing in the morning.and it has been so exciting to experience a different new taste every morning. I will definetly try these combinations as well. I didnt think of using herbs like mint or rosemary so far.sounds great. from my experience cucumber + raspberry is very delicous as well!

Post image for Organic vs. Conventional: The Dirty Dozen

I remember when the term “organic” first started becoming a thing – in my world, at least. I would hear it being thrown around here and there, but finding an organic vegetable in my everyday supermarket was basically a joke. Read more »

To all those going down the organic route please check this out (even though it's Australian the studies used are universally relevant). Also be mindful when buying cosmetics and any secondary products like muesli bars and such because the word 'organic' is often just a marketing ploy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlqk8oV1FVI

Thank you for spreading the word about this. I think my extra money put toward an organic shopping list has a priceless payoff. DW | www.daundra.com

Chia cherry sounds the best - but that might be because i'm partial to carob chips :) I actually buy them wholesale from here - https://www.weavernut.com/product/product.php?prodid=425 It's a lot of carob chips, so I'm good for quite some time :)
