There’s No Place Like HERE

I’m so glad we are WHERE we are, and that we are WHO we are. We are HERE.

We ARE.

Trees often remind me of this: we are special just because we exist. I am learning to appreciate where I am, when I’m here . . . wherever that is (kind of like the attitude this tree once had, if trees have attitude). I assume part of the cause for my contentment is being middle aged. I love middle age!

I still get antsy every once in a blue moon, though. I sometimes Continue reading

The next time there are sniffles in the air, a stomach flu bug, or you want to boost a weak immune system, try this Turmeric Tonic. It’s the bomb. Seriously, you’ll feel that warm ginger-burn inside, and any inflammation you’ve got going on inside of you will thank you.

Try  “Sipping Turmeric Tonic” during your next SIT.SIP.n.BE. and see what you think! I just winged it a while back with the ingredient ratios, and we love it. [see recipe below]  Continue reading

It’s a New Dawn. It’s a New Day.

New Year sunrise

Happy New Year 🙂 . I don’t have any big, or little, goals for the New Year, and I’m curious to see how it goes. I’m just extremely grateful I’ve finally woven some good things into my daily routines (see list below) that have stuck with me; things that contribute to my current level of well-being with health issues (with their ups and downs). So, I’m going to keep on truckin’.

My M.O. (modus operandi) . . . my same ol’ same ol’ . . . is currently working for me well enough and I’m happy 🙂  . Maybe it helps that Continue reading

Joyful Belly Coconut Milk & Honey Yogurt

turmeric yogurt

It’s so simple to culture your own yogurt! I still remember the first quivery spoonful from my first batch years ago. I enjoy making it in the early morning after I SIT.SIP.n.BE fully present. Or, sometimes I make it just before bed, instead, which makes for a very relaxing bed time routine. My coconut milk yogurt is AIP friendly (it has to be if I’m eating it!).

There is something very nurturing about the process of stirring, concocting this n’ that, filling jars, tightening lids and ‘tucking the jars into bed’ to culture away. Every time I set the jars on a heating pad under a wool “culturing sweater” I feel a little giddy… knowing there are magical things at work, changing and creating new probiotics on their own, and that the end result will be so good for me . . . joyful belly, indeed.

I’ve come up with a recipe that has the added benefits of gelatin and pea protein to make it more nutrient-dense . . . each single-serving jar of this yogurt has about 4 grams protein (protein is usually lacking in homemade coconut yogurt). And I’m including my optional flavor variations, which I created for their anti-inflammatory properties.

May your belly be welly. Enjoy! Continue reading
