It's supposed to be in the 70's today. Yeah. I am cooking mung beans and eating beans, brown rice and veggies as a "cleanse" for 30 days. The mung beans don't seem to give me gas...which is highly notable. I picked more collards from my garden l... Read more

Mighty Monday
Monday, January 05, 2009      0 comments

So what was my surprise for yesterday? One thing was the observation of how much "feeling stupid" runs my life. I get angry, defend myself, attack and run from situations or people who I feel are judging me as less than. My intention for this ye... Read more

I ate well yesterday, sticking to complex carbs and avoiding sugar. Also drinking more water. Made a crock pot full of lentil soup last night. Should last the weekend. What are my intentions for 2009? Lead from my heart. Speak the truth. ... Read more
