I decided to create a short video to share from my heart about moving in the direction of Higher Vibe Living – why and what it means to me and reaching out to women especially women who have and do struggle with emotional eating – it’s really the same behind any pattern or addiction to degree.
Since it is easier to share in words than writing from my heart I will start doing more vids – never thought I would!! Yet I still will do my photography as I so enjoy that!!
Please feel free to leave a comment or share!
Have a fantastic day!!

I will be short here as while I was writing the post it got way too long lol way too much to share!!
In short for this post:
Everything is Energy and therefore everything has vibration!!
We need to raise our vibration to be more love & light!!
More Light & Love is Needed!!
From every thought you think, to feeling you feel to action you take. To every piece of food you put in your body, to every piece in and on your body to everything in your house etc
Everything is Energy!
Science is and has been proving this – now it’s our time to wake up and learn it or I should say re-learn it as when we came to this experiment called planet Earth we actually did know it!
I’ve known much for awhile and kept quiet, yet the more I learn I realize the less I actually know!
Are you in love with your life? How you are living? Being the true authentic expression of who you really be? Are you feeding the body real foods or are you just eating so called things labelled as ‘food’ and not always in the present (paying attention as in not on your phone, in front of the tv or computer) or because you are bored, addicted or use it as an escape tool for truly feeling?
The word I was using before was Consciousness and I am learning it is highly misunderstood I feel – people say they are conscious but if you look at their lives or patterns or actions they take it’s clear they are not – me either – I am still learning and growing much, so I am not judging just being aware.
When one is really conscious they are basically enlightened – I am far from that yet I am moving in the direction of higher vibe living and have been and I know from my heart that is what I am here to share and help others awaken to their true selves, their essence and all the lies and bs we have been programmed to believe.
I won’t be focusing on all the lies and bs but will mention it as they are other people bringing much to light on those topics!! I would rather prefer to focus as much as possible on solutions, and things that are working and sharing what’s worked for me, different ways of thinking, feeling, eating and living.
Love is the Highest Vibration!
We are all underestimating our potential, power and love.
Sorry guys but especially us women – self love, self nurturing is so important now for everyone but especially women and not from an egotistical or narcissistic way but in a loving way. I also see a lot of low self worth, and emotional eating and what the media etc has conditioned us to believe who we should be or what we should be doing from an interesting point of view – once you start waking up or on the path of a Higher Vibrational way of living and being.
So instead of writing out a long post I wanted to share from the heart – the video will be up shortly so stop back!!
With much Love & Gratitude
Eat Real Food!

Your Life is a reflection and extension of your mind – in other words, according to Quantum Physics – your life is a feed back loop showing you what you are thinking, believing and feeling.
Are you in love with your life? How you live, what you do or who you be?
You are the creator and have the power to change.
It starts with a knowing of where you are and where you want to be and how you want to feel.
And moving in that direction.
Any state of being unless it’s love, joy and gratitude, that you hold for longer than about two minutes is a lie to who you really are and be………..interesting isn’t it? 🙂
We’ve created habits and patterns that don’t always serve us!
Remember, YOU are worth it!!

We are heading out on a road trip today. It’s been a crazy, amazing time leading up to this moment and I’ve been so present in what I have been doing that I gave very little time to thinking about this trip – more about all of that in another post.
As we make our way down to Florida and back over a couple of months I want to connect with women who would like to have a private photo session either just for themselves or to be part of my book coming up – Raw, Naked and Beautiful.
I am looking for women who want to be part of the Conscious Feminine to share their stories of their journey of coming back to more of themselves, more love, more self love and are body proud!!!
I have been receiving messages from the women who I have been doing nude photography sessions with on how much it has furthered their journey, empowered them, healed them and more.
The more love and self love we can bring back and embody is powerful!!
It’s time to take back our power!
Are there other ways? Of course, but this is one powerful way too, it may not speak to you but the women who have gone down the path of an eating disorder or similar, have had body issues, self esteem issues and who have bought into the lies by the advertising, media and more that we aren’t enough, nor good enough or again similar will get this!!
Please pass this on and or reach out to me as I would love to connect with you if this is resonating with you!!
I was going to call it Summer of Self Love but thought no, it needs to be longer and even Season of Self Love is too short,it really should be seasons!!
As many of you know that have followed me or my blog food and healthy food, / eating has been a big part of my life, food has also been one of my biggest challenges in my life – from not eating to binging to in my earlier years body obsessed to strict eating guidelines (raw foods only) to letting go of any and all rules and names (vegan,raw, foodie etc) to coming to pretty much a neutral place.
I even gave up trying to convince others they shouldn’t eat this or that or telling them what they should eat. I feel so much lighter. I also gave up trying to be perfect – that was a big one for me.
We are all so different when it comes to body shapes, body sizes, our genes (to a certain degree) and our likes and dislikes.
The base for me still resides in as close to nature as possible – clean and organic but I also have really allowed myself to be human and know I’m not perfect and stop being so hard on myself.
Believe it or not how and what we eat, really does say much about how we love ourselves.
Now I totally understand some people never have an issue with food, their bodies or self love, but I’m not talking to those people.
I want to connect and share my thoughts, messages and journey with the ones that have and are struggling with food issues, body issues, low self esteem issues.
I think back over my life and all the time I wasted on working out trying to get my thighs thinner – now please don’t misinterrupt what I am saying here, there is a difference between an obsession, loathing your self or your body and being healthy happy and free of that and still wanting to be, feel and look healthy.
What is the difference and fine line?
I turned 50 in December and right around the same time I put o an extra 10 lbs. First time in my life where my eight has been heavier and not coming off. Yes I’m in menopause, and I have readers (wth where did the time go!!??) It actually brought up the last of my body issues that I hadn’t fully embraced.
Could I still love myself enough even with some extra weight,some cellulite? I was eating healthy, getting some exercise – ok not like I used too when I was younger, working out daily, waitressing (so running around) and then 2 young children – busy young children (more running around). I did work at my computer more, read more, and took life a little slower after being so busy for years.
I also wasn’t having really any other side effects other than the odd little night sweat, so quite frankly I could live with a few extra pounds – but I still had some demons – not feeling good, enough or sexy. My clothes were tighter, I could see my body shifting.
Perfect – what better time then now to really let go of that bs yes bullshit and belief systems on my body defines who I am.
I love taking care of it, I love feeling good,healthy, radiant, alive but it’s not who I am.
It’s the place that my soul calls home.
And just like the house we live in, we do need to take care of it so it looks nice (or not), and make it our home so we are comfy in it,surrounding ourselves with things we like.
Would we spend much time in a place we didn’t like? Maybe temporarily to save for your ‘dream’ home or one that better suits you, unless money is a major factor for where and how we live, we can still decorate the inside of it to be our temple.
What are the ways to take care of you that maybe you have forgotten or left behind?
For me I am and have started to love me just for me – I’m here, alive, unique and instead of trying to fit in, focusing on my gifts, joy, love and more fun. Each day is difference but I do something daily that uplifts my spirits, that nurtures me, that feeds my soul – how do I know? It just feels good.
I might go for a walk in the rain forest here or shoot a sunset – one I’ve shot many times but it always brings me joy, connect with an old friend, take an afternoon cat nap, learn a new tool in Photography, have my toes painted – love having colourful toes in the summer, send a love note to my honey, yoga for the sake of connecting and feeling my body not for exercise. That one alone feels so good and different.
Just like the sunsets and sunrises that I love to catch – they are never the same. To some people they may be, but not to me. Each moment, each day is new, so are they and so am I – I get to choose – why not choose beauty and love.
Maybe it’s my age that I’ve come more into me and some moments I almost wish I could go back in time and take my wisdom, self love and knowledge back to my earlier years so that I wouldn’t waste all that energy on fighting my body, hating it or abusing it.
I look forward to posting more on these topics and more especially for women as it’s totally out of control now.
Seeing the younger generation with food, body issues and dieting really saddens me – it’s incredible what marketing and advertising can do to us. Yet it’s not just them, it’s women in general.
Start adding in sprinkles of self love and self nurturing no matter how busy you are, cause if you don’t you may be forced to at some point in your life and trust me that way is not always fun!!
Have an amazing day and create some more self love for YOU!!!

I posted on my FB wall today the saying “Love is the absence of judgment“.
Take a few minutes today to just reflect on that. We usually first think of it when we are walking down the street and see someone who could be homeless, or dressed weird or has multiple tattoos and thoughts pop into our heads – we are aware those judgments.
Yet, what about for yourself – your body?
Just pay attention to the thoughts and feeling that come up for you! If it’s not total acceptance and love then it’s judgement and you deserve better!!
Since I use an love Purium an the Ignite Road Trip is on and about half way through the tour with 100’s of people c coming out, I thought I would include this recipe!! If you are curious about Purium, why Purium, why green foods, why David Sandoval or Amy Venner then join 100’s of other people attending these events (if it’s not already too late) and getting tapped in, tuned in and turned on to the wave of the future and the importance of Green food!!!
If you think you would like to try this recipe then feel free to check out the Purium products ( Tropical oil aka Coconut Oil – probably the best I’ve tried, Activated Barley and the L.O.V Live Organic Vegan ), contact me with any questions or go straight to order these products and use the $50 Gift Card (code is eatinghealthy) or better yet you already have these products and can use them right away!! Yes you could substitute them as well and I will give suggestions yet it just won’t be as tasty or probably nutritious – ok I may be a little biased here but I know what I know!! 🙂
Please note – most of Purium’s products are foods and they are live, vegan, organic (certified whenever possible) AND NON-gmo.
Mix well together either by hand or in a food processor
Roll into balls or flatten them
Can roll that in shredded raw Coconut or raw Cacao Powder with some Monk fruti sugar (or other type if wanted any sugar at all – not needed)
Keep in fridge
Makes great snacks, treats and since it’s loaded with nutrition and the Activated Barley (slow burning germinated carb) you will have sustained energy!! If all ingredients are raw, including the almond butter you have a tasty and live treat!
2014 was a very interesting year for me. I had many experiences this year – ALL about growth, not always fun but reflecting back ooooh so worth it!!. If we are not stretching ourselves and growing / expanding then decay, death, aging, limitation set in. Some were hard, a few even painful lessons but many more lessons and experiences were amazing. I had to let some people go in my life and guess what? New, more healthy, conscious people came into my life to help me further on my path that I strayed from and because of that even more amazing things have been happening.
As the last few hours of 2014 are upon us – take some time to reflect over the past year and set clear intentions on what you would like to experience, create, feel, allow in in 2015 – YOU are the creator of your life – live it to the fullest in ALL areas!!
May Love, Health, Happiness and Abundance be in your world today and always!!!
How often do you get thrown some lemons – you know life’s little hard knocks, or lessons when we aren’t really paying attention!!
Are you able to take those lemons and turn them into Lemonade?
One of the best ways I have found is to have an attitude of gratitude – no matter how s@*^y it may seem and trust me I know I’ve been there.
If you can really reach for that attitude of gratitude or the love or just let that anger or frustration or whatever else it is go – just let go and be in the flow – you are making lemonade and you will feel better, lighter, happier trust me I know that one too.
It’s when I dig in, fight back, resist or think too much that I twist myself, my head or my body in knots.
I don’t know you about you but I would rather be sitting back, chillaxin and drinking lemonade!!
Now that is food for thought eh??
Make it a great day!!
Ahhh I can feel the breeze gently blowin, layin in the hammock, sipping away………..
