Making jam with foraged berries (& garden harvest photos)

In the last couple of weeks, the berries have been ripening. So, we have been picking dew berries, blackberries, raspberries, and huckleberries, which you may have seen in a recent post (here). After the 4th of July, the berries will be ready to harvest in bulk.

I Am Not Perfect, And I Am OK With That - Are You?

I am not perfect.

And I am not trying to make myself perfect.

I am not trying to 'improve' myself or 'spiritualize' my faults out of myself.

I am on a path of self love.

I encourage you to be on the same path of self love, and to let go of all the self rejection.

Check out my latest video on the subject, and let me know what you think!

Here is the link ---> …

I am so utterly frustrated with the world sometimes and wish that everybody would take on the Vegan lifestyle. Knowing that there are people in this world who don't care about what happens to animals makes me sick. What has this world become. There needs to be a huge change.

Easy Fruit Popsicle - Great for Summer!

fruit popsicle

Looking for a perfect healthy treat for summer? How about a yummy fruit popsicle?

Recently I had to undergo a procedure that required me to fast for a day. They allow you to have broth and popsicles. Yum! 

So off to the store I went in search of a whole fruit popsicle. Sounds easy, right? Nope!  The majority of them have many added ingredients that I didn't want.

I decided to…

My Thoughts on the Yulin Dog Meat Festival

This whole campaign against the Yulin Dog Meat Festival really got me thinking about our society's attitude towards meat consumption in general. I think it is an appropriate time to remind the general public why they feel this outrage against what happened, and question why this doesn't translate to other, more widely accepted sources of meat. I wrote a blog post to get out my thoughts and hope you will share it to your meat-eating acquaintances. Maybe it will make a difference, maybe it…

Day Four

Yeah so yesterday was a busy day so I didn't have time to write a blog post about what I ate but I did track it on the cronometer. It went well so there's nothing strange with that day anyway. I've kinda failed in carbing up today. I didn't have the bananas or anything else to make me a 1000 kcal breakfast, so it went on about 600 but I survived haha. Then for my lunch I counted…

Are Bananas the New Currency?

So, I work out of the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in Marina del Rey California every morning from 7-12 and stash up to a dozen bananas in my backpack to much on. I get the usual jokes about monkeys and all that and just laugh with 'em. They sell no fruit here at this location , so I always bring extras and pass them out... no big deal and no health lectures from me....you know how tiring and frustrating it gets trying to educate everyone you meet. I'm resolved to just…
