Soups for Spring
Aren't soups the perfect thing for our emergence into spring? The weather can be changeable, going back and forth between cool & pleasantly warm, with brief visits back to winter cold and forward into summer heat. Plus, our bodies are set for clearing out winter toxins and moving into lighter, fresher fare.
I ran across some great looking, healthy recipes at cosmopolitan.com.....Just listen to this: Greens & Garlic Soup; Ginger, Turmeric & Carrot Soup; Golden Beet Soup with Roasted Garlic & Cashew Cream. Yum Yum! The good ideas just go on & on...
And how about these recipes from Frontier Herbal Cooperative: African Curied Coconut Soup or Cajun - Parmesan Potato Slices or Spicy White Bean Hummus! This is a great idea too: Roasted Beet Skewers with Curried Yogurt Dipping Sauce. (P.S. We've been buying our bulk herbs & spices from Frontier since 1978)
Revitalize with These Essential Oil Recipes
Are Your Feet Beach-Ready?
Is Your Home Ready for Spring?
It's time to open those windows and doors and let the Spring air in. Clear out the toxins that have accumulated over the winter and refresh your home. Bring in cut herbs, flowers, ferns - anything green from outside. It's a way for you to reboot your life, realigning the home interior with vibrant nature energy from your garden and yard.
I like to use my diffuser and make my own essential oil blends to further clear the interior energy. Floracopeia has some great recipes here...

|Perk up with desk yoga|
If you feel drowsy at your computer, don’t grab another cup of coffee. Instead, try some stress-busting desk yoga. If you feel tension in the back of your neck, breathe deeply and do some gentle stretches. Raise your shoulders up to your ears and hold. Then drop them right down and release your breath.
