The 12 Laws of Karma

Lifestyle, Yoga By June 19, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

The Laws of Karma should govern us, not these man made constructs that seem to cause social breakdown and make us self-destruct. Kindred Spirits is soon coming to the surface, but to be brief, it is a points rewards system that promotes consciousness, optimal living and sustainability and is based primarily on the principles of Buddhism, without being religious, it…

Steamed Purple Sweet Potato and Cocoa Rolls

Adventures By January 9, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

Here in Thailand they still serve a lot of Chinese food, stuffed pastries and oddly enough, stuffed white bread with colourful filling – What’s inside, I do not know but I don’t want to try to find out. My friend likes them but I don’t dare to try them. I know the dangers of food colouring. Steamed buns are typically…

I wanted to get out of Chiang Mai suddenly so I hopped on a bus to Bangkok. It arrived 2 hours earlier than expected and rather then pay a taxi 500 baht to spend the day in the city (I’m not nuts about Bangkok anyway) I said Fuk-it, I’m going to Pooh-ket. That 500 baht I saved was well spent,…

I’m a huge believer in the importance of eating fresh, local produce. Now that I’m in Brasil, tropical fruit is abundant and as I face my fruit phobias I’m exploring flavours and today I actually used an entire mango and turned it into a delicious salsa. I think I always knew Brasil would be the place that I would have…

31 > 21

Lifestyle By February 2, 2015 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

It’s simple math. It’s  a fact. It can be proven. Therefore, I know for a fact that I’m just getting greater with age. (Maybe it has something to do with all that fine wine I’m drinking)… I’m 31 and I’m not afraid to admit it.

Refined white sugar, referred to as table sugar, is readily available and consumed around the world. Ironically, the term ‘refined’ means to ‘purify’; however, white sugar is processed by stripping all of the nutrients and pure wholesome qualities from the sugarcane. In other words: Refined does not equal Pure. Creating more confusion, Health Canada regulations require ingredients to be listed…

    I recently stumbled upon this article from Mind Body Green and I find this is a very important and overlooked topic of discussion. There is nothing more common than wasted talent, passion and energy because we get so caught up chasing the gold and living up to other people’s expectations of success or financial independence that we end…
