When the tide goes out

I sit in the dappled rays of early morning sunlight, the fog that rolled in earlier burning off quickly today. The tide is out, way out, and I can smell the mudflats on the rivers edge this morning. Earthy. Damp. Fertile. My mug of tea, clasped between my hands, is warming – inside and out. […]

My Favourite Things

“…when the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I’m feeling sad I simply remember my favourite things, and then I don’t feel so bad…” The chorus (written by Rodgers & Hammerstein for The Sound of Music in 1959) to this enduring song is so catchy.

Home Sweet (and Healthy) Home

Home Sweet Home

Home. It’s more than a roof over our heads. It’s more than a place we eat, wash, and sleep. It’s even more than the place we love our beloved, or raise our family.   Home. It’s sanctuary from the world, for when we need to retreat, restore, refuel. It’s our haven, to nourish our bodies, […]

Hoping for Better Health?

Hope is what we have when there is first belief in possibilities. Belief stems from knowledge, awareness and conviction. Chances are you do have a fair amount of knowledge about what healthy food looks like. You read articles, see postings on social media, hear your friends talk about.
