Welcome TO THE

This spring will be unlike any other. Local market meanderings and the first garden gatherings with family and friends will have to wait. That said, spring and all its gifts, are blindly well underway. The first slim asparagus, tender pods of peas, skinny French beans and baby new potatoes are letting us know there is […]

So many of us are raised to believe that hard work is what makes us valuable. I don’t come from a highly driven background, but my family had circumstances that conspired to make me believe that my value was absolutely dependent on my contribution, my performance and my action. With this deeply held universal belief […]

So many of us have been taught that taking care of ourselves is selfish. Many of us have also been taught that we shouldn’t have any emotional needs. The thing is, we can’t really show up for each other if we’re not tending to ourselves and if we are not fully resourced. Believe me, I’ve […]

It is helpful to think about the immune system, and most systems of the body, as something that we want to be balanced, rather than boosted. We can support a strong immune system with nutrition, herbs, lifestyle, and mindset. Now is a good reminder that it’s hard to “make up” for loss of health. Rather, […]

When I was 6 years of age I went to hospital with a split chin and came out sporting a rather fancy set of stitches, which my father laughingly compared to a darned sock. This is my one complete, preserved memory of him, which is not why I am telling this story. The real point […]

I started drinking plant-based broth a number of years ago as a way to nourish my body, support my digestion and encourage my body to heal. At the time I became fixated on creating a broth that was both healing and delicious. It took gallons of experimentation before I came up with what I now […]

We are made up of a complex symphony of hormones – estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, cortisol, insulin, to name just a few. These chemical messengers must play in harmony with each other for us to function optimally. However, many of us deal with hormonal imbalances that lead to mood swings, brain fog, irritability, fatigue, skin […]

Our skin is our largest organ and a large percentage of what we put on our skin is absorbed by the body. Products that we use each day, from shampoo to body wash, to lotion and perfume, can impact our toxic load. To make matters more confusing, we don’t always know what’s inside the personal […]

You’ve likely heard the old adage: beauty begins on the inside. It really is true. More specifically, beauty really begins in the gut. I subscribe to a more functional approach to beauty that’s deeply tethered to nutrition and health. On top of that, how we navigate stress, environmental factors, rest and repair are critical elements […]

Habits are much more powerful than we realise. So often we act out of what we are used to, what we know, and what we have done in the past. They are the invisible architecture of our every day experience. Studies suggest that we repeat about 40 percent of our behaviour almost daily. Habits are […]
