But don’t listen to Justin Bieber cause that makes you lame.

But do listen to SOME mainstream or you’ll be called a hipster.

Don’t wear fedoras, cause that’ll make you a poser.

But don’t wear baseball hats either cause that would make you a Bro.

And accept everyone for who they are.

Unless…

I LOVE SWEET TATERS!! 
(Feels good to finally say it.)
Wanna make some chips at home? Here’s how:
Needed:
2 organic sweet potatoes
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp sea salt (optional)
How to:
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F and position oven rack in the center of the oven.
Rinse and dry your sweet potatoes thoroughly and slice them as uniformly thin as possible. If you have a mandolin, use it. Otherwise, use a very sharp knife to get these uniformly thin. Know that chips that are too thick in parts won’t crisp up all the way. Still delicious, just not “chip” crispiness.
Toss slices in a touch of olive oil to lightly coat, then sprinkle with salt. Lay out in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for about 2 hours, flipping chips once at halfway point to ensure even cooking. I also rotated mine for more even cooking (optional but recommended).
Remove once crisp and golden brown. Some may feel a little tender in the middle but take them out and let them rest for 10 minutes or so to crisp up before sampling. Serve immediately. I like them plain or with a sweet & spicy Thai dipping sauce.

A new documentary looks at the role corporations & the Federal government have played in making us fatter and sicker than ever before. 
Spoiler Alert: It all comes back to SUGAR.

As some of you know, our stable/pasture is in a small park (a place for bird watchers, mainly) in the center of vineyards. Because there’s a walking path, people come to stroll & appreciate nature… And our horse. 

This pic was drawn for M by a child who’s been asking to “pleeeeeeeeeease go visit the horse” since he could talk. The boy is small but delights in “helping” M with anything he can. 

He drew this picture as a thank you for countless hours spent dreaming of horses… ❤️

We all have different bodies, different goals & different motivations. 

For people like me, who live with autoimmune disease, the goal is simply to feel better. 

So in my world, strong & healthy is sexy as it gets.

Full Boat Pose seems like a basic position that doesn’t require much flexibility. In reality, the required amount of core stability, strength, postural awareness and endurance is considerable. It is the link between core stability and strength. 
Core Stability is the ability of the body to control the trunk or ‘core’. It involves the control of deep stabilizing muscles and more superficial global muscles. Good core stability is using the right muscles at the right time and the right intensity to control the trunk appropriately for the task at hand. 
The muscles of the body are either global (movement) or stabilizer (postural) muscles. The global muscles are designed to generate a lot of force for short periods of time and the stabilizer muscles are designed to work at a low intensity for long periods of time and during any body movement. Once you can achieve The Full Boat Position, being able to maintain this pose for up to a minute requires controlled breathing and muscle endurance.

I rarely eat packaged or processed food because it’s simply not good for health—Whole, fresh, local, seasonal, WHOLE food is where it’s at. 

I don’t buy pre-made salad dressing or sauces; I prefer to make my own. One of my few processed food exceptions is organic soy yogurt. Today’s is cherry with fresh berries, almonds, dried cranberries and coconut.
