I'm on my first visit back to the Caribbean since Spring Break 2000. St. Martin feels a little more grown up than the Bahamas, but I guess I too am a little more grown up and a lot more appreciative of paradise as it offers time of rest and relaxation. I'm always on the lookout for juice bars when I'm traveling. Hot weather places generally don't disappoint. As far as beverages go, fresh fruit juices and refreshing smoothies of mixed local fruits trail a close second to readily available (and cheap) beer.
February 11,2012One of my most favorite Saturday morning activities is a walk to San Francisco's Ferry Building Farmers Market. It's an amazing way to start a day! Similar to the high from the aroma or first sip of morning coffee - fresh air, glowing bounty of seasonal produce and the farmers' smiles - nature's stimulation is spirit-elevating. I can't help but smile and want to make eyes to greet everyone I walk by.
We're in love with our glass jars too! Not to mention they're purposeful; the glass upholds the integrity of our fresh juices and beverages. But what to do with all the jars after your cleanse? While my canning and perserving do'ers have no problem reusing the jars, what to do with them for those of you who are stumped?
Often it's helpful to listen to what others are saying and experiencing before you jump into a cleanse, especially if it's your first one. Filled with tons of excitement and heavy with apprehension? Totally normal. Cleansing is a unique experience as it takes you on a full departure from your routine. Every experience is different for each individual as well as each time you cleanse. I was touched by the time and candid experience that this client shared with me. Thanks for CAN CAN'ing, Sommer!
January 14,2012It's that time of year when we swear-off sweets, march ourselves to the gym and opt for decaf coffee. We're creatures of habit so the indicators of a new routine make this time a year notably noticeable. We call these new patterns our resolutions. However, resolutions seem to dwindle as the first month of the year comes to an end (not to say 31 days isn't a commendable length of time to break the routine), but rather than stopping and turning the caffeine back up to high, why not turn these resolutions into goals? Transform even just one into a way of life and healthier living.
