The Good Life

20150803_204236

A gift from my beautiful friend Heidi! A bountiful bouquet of delicious life affirming, health infusing goodness!

A toast beauties: to green gardens; to good friends; to warm summer evenings chatting at sunset; to gazing west, beyond the cows and chickens, to the rich golden pink sunset, tinged with the sooty smoke of a wildfire. Then, with a rich, zesty, satiny glass of Amarone red wine in hand, I smile into my friend’s blue eyes, satisfied at what my life has become.

Love and lettuce,
Kathryn

Affirmations –The Making of a Life

20150801_070136_NE Mays Ave

What I tell myself: a mantra; an affirmation; a positive statement; my descriptive, emotional goal; my desire; a new frame; The Secret; the power of attraction;

How about this: What’s simply true.

Every day I choose. I commit all the way. I get up early and do my yoga. I write and check my stocks. I push past the small niggling pettiness of “just a little bit” or “just a little longer” our “it’s a special occasion” or “everybody eats this way” and move into my truer nature: Lean. Strong. Moving light and happy through this world.

Then: secure; at peace; …in love.

I tell the truth, the real deep down, for reals truth, about food, about money, about love…about everything and anything that matters. To me.

Just opening to the possibility. Smiling into the unfolding. Living. Choosing. Taking. Giving.

A toast beauties—to life affirming, peace-giving, creative whispers—that birth the desires of the soul.

Breakfast at Grandma’s

20150708_083911_Bainbridge Loop NE

My ten year-old daughter Sarah and I are on the road, on our way to the San Juan’s for a week-long “Kumbaya” kind of family camp. We stopped at Grandma Marjie’s for a visit and brought our healthy food with us.

“I’ll make breakfast Mom,” I call from the bathroom.

“Sounds great Sweetie!” She says while sipping her morning, black coffee. So I proceed to whip up the greens, oats and chia, topped with hemp and vegan protien and rice milk. Then I slipped in a cup matcha-infused dragonwell tea, which I laced with frothy rice milk.

Woohoo: The good life!!

Love that she’s open to my silly food!

Cheers lovelies,
to living well while traveling!

Eating My Weedies!

20150527_082002_NE Carrie Ln

Fresh filtered water 2-3 cups
A bosc pear
Some dandelions from my back yard
A gripful of barley or wheat grass (pre-blended with water and stained)
A handful of frozen berries
A bunch of parsley
A little nib of ginger

Blend all lovely ingredients for 30 seconds on high, pour into a glass, then drink–for a light natural high. (Be careful with the amount of grass. Whew!)

Green smoothies made from foraged weeds, are becoming a mainstay for me. This is a seriously creative fun way to live.

A toast beauties, to health! To living outside the box! To seeing the wealth around us! To questioning! To love!

Fit Feels

20150310_180630

“Nothing tastes as good as fit feels.”

I like this. This little inspirational quote was up on the white board at the gym where my boyfriend works out, and where he coaches me on Wednesday mornings–one of the best parts of the week. (Smile) We looked at the saying a few days back, and we pondered its meaning as we worked our leg biceps and crunched our quads.

I wonder: Is that really true? As I type here and munch away on my homemade chocolate-flax-vegan-protein-powder cookie, I think this little nugget just might be true. Fit just might feel better, than this cookie tastes. Maybe. It’s not like I can’t have ONE of these, then eat a little less later, right? Being fit isn’t about eternal deprivation, right?

I think being fit is pure, hedonistic joy. THINK. I’d actually like to FEEL this. A plump, protruding abdomen–eh, not so much. But, how do I know “fit feels” at a deeper feeling that leads to the action of conscious eating? Sometimes I feel just so darned weak-willed. And, I make the most delicious things on the planet!

The boyfriend-coach says just keep building muscle, keep eating and the whole thing will work itself out. Hmmm… For now, I’m trying that.

Just thinking.
Be well beauties.
Kathryn
