Raw Vegan Gluten-Free Blueberry Cheesecake Recipe

Quitting plastics initially can feel like we have fewer options. Soon we realise that this choice actually frees us from the consumption culture that previously bound us to the large supermarkets that make it far too easy for us to buy anything we can think of from one place. Most often the food available is not fresh, local, or organic--but instead, processed, full of preservatives, and packaged in plastic. None of the above speaks nutrition or vibrant nourishment to our bodies!

Pisces Full Moon September 2019

PISCES FULL MOON MUSINGS:  There is nothing more natural than what we FEEL. Honour the messages that come from within.

Our physical body communicates hunger, sleepiness, pain, energy, desires. Our heart & spirit communicate emotions, calls us to step up. Time to sharpen our energetic sensitivities to more clearly hear the guidance from within.  No time to diminish these messages, bottle our emotions, no time to be small or take up less space for fear of judgment. Time to hold space for our own selves—so we show up in full power, full love, in juicy rich grounded FULLNESS for this experience of life. Do the work, ground & connect in, so that we can hold all that we are calling in & manifesting.

Oat Milk Recipe & the Ever Evolving Adaptable Earth Activist

I became super into making my own nut milks. Soaked almonds and blended them every morning with some cinnamon and dates for smoothies, lattes, porridge, etc.

Then I learned that to grow only ONE almond it takes a whopping 1.1 gallons of water!

California, a state infamous for perpetual drought, produces 82% of the world’s almonds. So, I decided to use less plant milk in my life. When I wanted milk, I would make OAT MILK when in the US and only make almond milk when in Australia, where I could buy local Australian almonds.

Until I learned that Australian almonds are grown in drought-stricken Murray Valley! Damn!

THE MERCAST to explore solutions to the CLIMATE EMERGENCY

Launching my podcast THE MERCAST to figure out how the hell we get out of this warming planet mess.

…I had already cancelled my mermaid retreats because I don’t yet know how to offset 10+ mermaids flying through the air burning nonrenewable fossil fuels, smashing carbon back into the atmosphere, and melting 32 square feet of arctic ice every 7000 mile flight / 10 hours in the air / roundtrip flight New York to London.

Climate Panic? Learn 3 Simple Ways to REGENERATE the Planet

I really like Earth, so here’s my understanding of a few climate solutions that lifted my spirit immensely.

Even Though Recycling is a LIE - Why We Cannot Stop

The coverage of the recycling myth is to bring awareness & put pressure on the governments to clean up their act. We must keep recycling. In fact our recycling must be more pristine than ever, so that when Australia, when the US, when the collective “global north” finally decide to recycle domestically they will have warehouses full of immaculate resources ready to be made into recycled swimwear and running shoes.
