Completing the Anti-Inflammatory Picture: Exercise

Over the past two weeks we explored the pros & cons of Ketogenic diet, and I shared with you the core principles of my anti-inflammatory lifestyle. But we haven’t touched on exercise.

Let’s talk about different kinds of exercise and what they’re good for:

1. Moderate continuous training

Self-Love As Spiritual Practice = More Love & Healing for The World

What if loving yourself first and foremost is NOT selfish?

What if the ONLY way in which you can truly love others is by loving yourself first?

I know this sounds counter to what many of us were taught. We've learned that it's selfish to put ourselves first, especially when you're a parent.

Many of us in the western world were raised hearing this Christian maxim:

Love thy neighbor as thyself. 

Bacon Pad Thai! (Recipe)

For the past week I've had a hankering for Pad Thai... and also WAY too many vegetables in my fridge... Along with a gorgeous slab of uncured, unsliced bacon.

I wanted to find a great way to prepare the bacon that has been taunting my husband and me, and so... Bacon Pad Thai! 

Health: When We Can't Seem To Do What We Know We Should Do

Some people seem to have it. They're really good at working out consistently, eating healthy, doing the right things for their health... and it seems natural and effortless for them.

Most of us are not in that camp. I certainly have never been the sort of person to be super motivated to work out. And hardly EVER have I had the willpower to stick to a food "regimen" for more than 3-4 weeks.

Never. EVER.
