The Comparison Game

The Comparison Game

I constantly compare myself to others. I have the jealousy thing kicked. Well, almost. You know what I’m talking about, right? Being jealous of others for what they have, what they accomplished, what they look like, their successes, public triumphs, riches, and so on and so forth. I know, and I think it’s finally baked […]

Energizing Raw Coconut Maca Fudge - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Energizing Raw Coconut Maca Fudge – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

This is another raw vegan (depending on the sweetener you use) fudge recipe. All these vegan, raw, paleo dessert recipes I test are different, with fun variations, and this one has a really cool new addition. The twist on this fudge is the maca powder. I’m new to maca powder; I’ve just started adding it […]

Broccoli is one of the world’s healthiest foods. It’s also one of the easiest vegetables to use for a super tasty, satisfying dish.

My stepmother Mariella is from Peru. I’ve been there once, with her, visiting family. After staying in Lima for a month, I can say for certain that some of the best food in the world is in Peru. The food is bright and sharp but nuanced and totally flavorful. The best ceviche is in Lima, […]

These grain bowls are adaptable, insanely flavorful, and easy to put together.

This recipe is one of the easiest I’ve made, and the clean up is even easier. And, if like me, you love falafel, you will absolutely adore this dish.

Pecan Brussels Sprouts - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Pecan Brussels Sprouts – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

I love Brussels sprouts. And this recipe is one of the easiest ways to prepare the petit cabbages.

Brussels sprouts are high in a chemical thought to contain anti-cancer properties; it’s called […]

Pumpkin Persimmon Pie – Ageless Diet™ for the Holidays

This pie is definitely not ageless, but it could be considered ageless for the holidays. Why? Because it’s all natural, organic, and lower in sugar than a store bought pie.

Astrology for December 2014 by Bob Mulligan

Astrology for December 2014 by Bob Mulligan

There is so much stellar activity in this month that we never seem to really get our balance. The first half of the month is very innovating, uplifting and inspiring; while the second half is pensive, inward, and reality testing.  Saturn (lord of tradition) Sesquiquadrate Uranus (god of revolution) on the 3rd challenges us to […]

Tofu is a damn near perfect food. It’s low in calories, high in protein, rich in minerals, cholesterol free, eco-friendly, and full of amino acids.

Everything You Say Is An Affirmation

I recently wrote about how we talk to ourselves and why it’s important to stop putting ourselves down. I also began a No Mean Words (to yourself & others) Challenge. This has been a hard one to keep. I do think I’m better about how I talk to and about myself. I stopped telling everyone […]
