– Let us Love Back in May 2010, when Kindfood opened its doors, I had no idea what my heart was getting into. For all of my life I have wanted to help others and to show them a better way of eating – without ‘processed foods’ or ingesting harmful toxins from animal-based foods and create a community or culture for all to enjoy. A little over a year earlier, in 2009, we birthed this massive passion within our family by going 100% plant-based (vegan) and it poured into my soul and into everyone else’s around me. It was so exciting! I was completely passionate about my thoughts and what I was learning about planet-based foods, Superfoods, and the truth about the big agricultural animal-based food industry. As a family, we all were fired up to spread the word, the passion and spread the love. Kindfood was born. Ken and I were…

I started out today wanting to share some profound message with you and have found myself simply wanting to say “thank you”. It’s a simple message but when I said it aloud, I could feel it resonate so deeply, I was moved to tears. Thank you for my life. Thank for to the Universe for supporting my dreams. Thank you the Universe for giving me gifts I never knew were ‘gifts’. Thank you for giving me Mother Earth roots that go deep into this planet (to protect it). Thank you for giving me the gift to be able to help others. Thank you for allowing me to feel and have the human quality called empathy. Thank you for this thrilling life. I am so grateful. Thank you for giving me the endless capacity to love. Thank you for blessing me with the strength of being a woman ….and the courage too…

Make your life the best one you can ever imagine. Close your eyes and dream it. There is no fear. There is just the illusion of what the future holds and it’s up to us to take that step to co-create what is deep in our hearts. We can manifest any reality we desire. TRUST Yourself. LET GO of everything. BELIEVE in your power….. and always…. LOVE. ‪#‎AreYouLivingYourLifeYet‬

Yup, it is really, “Happy Superhero Day!” There is more to being a “mom” than meets the eye and there is a reason I feel not quite right about this day because I feel that not all women feel included. That isn’t me just to accept the status quo and go along with this hallmark day and day to spurn on the economic engine. I believe today is a day to celebrate all women, every single one of us, as we are inherent builders of the love that we all bathe in every day.  There are adopted moms, step moms, grandmoms, big sisters (and little sisters), aunties and best friend’s moms and teachers too. There are matriarchal elders in villages and female presidents and yoginis and so many more roles that have been bestowed upon us and each role is magnificent and significant. We, as women, infuse them all with greatness. It…

I’m a big advocate of trying to slow down the pace of life, simplifying our lives, being less busy in our moments… but what if you can’t? (I’m a big talker believe me, my life is nothing short of full-out craziness running two VERY BUSY businesses). What if your life can’t be made less busy — are you doomed to a life of anxiety and unhappiness? Sometimes I feel this way with having Kelly’s Bake Shoppe and LettuceLove Cafe in my life and now, a book that is due, a new website, blog posts, recipe creation, Thanksgiving and Christmas is coming!!! OMG, it is sometimes overwhelming with no space to breathe. I’m going to share with you a very simple tool that might just transform your life. It’s something I’ve been trying in the last couple of months, and I can attest that it works brilliantly when practiced. This one little method will…

Meditation In A Busy World: Finding Your Centre Amid The Chaos Meditation has been around for centuries, but lately it has been experiencing a revival as more and more people are seeing how relevant this ancient Buddhist practice is with today’s modern lifestyles. Studies have proven the many benefits of meditation: It gives you clarity, it relieves stress and anxiety, it feeds your creativity, it drives you toward your goals, it has the capacity to heal your pain – physical, emotional, real or imagined. Some people use it to seek solutions for their specific problems while others need it to make life easier and lighter in general. I find that meditation is perfectly aligned with our life principles on making more responsible, sustainable decisions. Yes, I see the direct connection between food and meditation! Our decision to go vegan is rooted in our commitment to our health and to caring…

My thought for the day (to work toward living an authentic life): About 7 years ago in California, we met a very wise, older woman that shared some brilliant words with us…words that have stuck with us until this very day and will continue to do so. They have kept us in a loving, grateful ‘present’ outlook within our life together. My incredibly patient and loving husband has had to endure some difficult, horrific family situations for the past 20+ years from his previous life. I’ve done my absolute best to be the rock he needed, in the most difficult of times. He needed to hear, back then, that he was on the right path to becoming his authentic self. With a lovely, wise smile, she lifted her head and she said most stoically, “Family is not necessarily one made of blood”. WOW! That was all we could say after these…
