Hello dear readers, I’m finally back in one of my favourite cities in the world, Vancouver, BC. Honestly, there is almost no other place I would rather be in the summer. It is the one season we forget the damp, cool, rainy climes of the North West and embrace the seemingly endless days of sunshine with abandon […]
If you follow my instagram feed, you may notice that I often post pictures of some of my cold-pressed juice and smoothie concoctions. What you may also know about me is that I study Ayurveda, the ancient philosophy of healing from India, which offers practical advice on every aspect of our lives, but specifically how we […]
There is an Arabic saying that the soul travels at the pace of a camel. While most of our self is led by the strict demands of timetables and diaries, our soul, the seat of the heart, trails nostalgically behind, burdened by the weight of memory. – Alain De Botton You could say that the paradox of modern […]
I love almond milk. I find it to be the perfect base for smoothies, to pour over home made granola and to use as a base in raw desserts and soups. However, I decided a few years ago that store bought almond milk just wasn’t cutting it. It was bland; when you drank it just by […]
I first met Andrea Sergeant, the bubbly force behind holistic nutrition and lifestyle company Healthy Delicious in Sayulita, Mexico, almost six years ago.

If you know me, you do know that I love both cooking and eating whole, natural foods, which is why I am so excited about the Blissology Project Commitment #4: eating food that’s high on the pranameter(TM). It makes sense, right? If we eat food that comes from a natural, prana (energy) filled source, we are going to be more radiantly alive? In that vein, here’s a recipe for some scrumptious raw, blissology “bliss” balls. Enjoy!!!
From the Yogue archives. This is a favourite and perfect here in the tropics where are living for the next few months. Even if you are in colder climes, the ginger will warm this brew up and depending on your Ayurvedic constitution, you may add a little more or less. Please do use organic ingredients! […]
I recently read Toronto based yoga teacher Matthew Remski’s essay on how modern yoga needs to offer “real” support and connection to its community at the yoga studio level – he calls it the “soup kitchen”-ing of yoga studios. It’s a brilliant, thought provoking essay and you can find it in the book 21st Century Yoga Politics […]
The winter solstice is here. It is the perfect time to pause. To become aware of our turning from the dark days of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere towards a journey back into days of more and more light. I also think it’s the ideal time to take stock of the past year, of […]
a valentines message to be open and vulnerable to the spirit of love.
