The most healthy way to eat is a way that FEELS good and satisfies you. Because health is so much more than what’s on your plate.
We love that superfoods are multi-taskers—foods brimming with various disease-fighting nutrients, usually without providing too many calories, and delivered in a delicious form. Easy-to-eat, easy-to-find, everyday “super” foods to keep eating healthy simple.
Superfoods are incredibly nutritious, whole foods that offer a wide arrange of essential micronutrients in high quantities, like vitamins and minerals that are needed for our bodies to run smoothly and stay disease-free.
Along with essential nutrients, superfoods can heal because they contain very potent and unique compounds beyond vitamins and minerals that protect the immune system and even kill harmful bacteria in our guts.
These news-worthy compounds like antioxidants, sulforaphanes, and healthy anti-inflammatory fats are just another reason why these foods are so super.
We are disappointed beyond words over the death of Louise. L Hay. As well as millions of people worldwide, Louise L. Hay had a profound influence on many of her fellow Hay House authors.
A teacher, mentor, author and motivational speaker, Louise L. Hay will be missed by many and is irreplaceable.
Heaven has a new angel — Thank you for all of the support and inspiration you gave to us over the years, and for the remarkable work you did on this planet.
While we are sad at her passing, We know that her soul is now free to rest, explore, and teach. She truly IS Divine Light.
We are saying affirmations for her and her family and know she will be shining down upon us all from the other side.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
“Beauty is power a smile is its sword.” -John Ray
There is no other step on the journey that happens as instantaneously as Surrender; but, it may take a very long time until we are ready to fully do so. When we do, our prior step of soul searching moves towards its end. Nearly simultaneously, the next step after Surrender – Healing – begins.
As we move deeper into the soul level of the journey, it becomes increasingly difficult to separate out the steps, for they overlap in a very non-linear way. Once we surrender, the opportunity is there for us to discover a higher power that is always available to assist us, we exercise our free will and allow it into our lives.
Surrender is about partnering with the Divine. It is about realizing that we are not alone and that we don't have to solve every dilemma by ourselves.
Indeed, as Einstein famously said, we can't solve problems at the same level of consciousness that created them. Surrender allows us to access a higher consciousness in order to transcend the problem and move to a new level entirely. Some call this grace. We call it empowerment.

The notion that baking could provide a form of therapy has been around for years, and growing up as being a professional ballerina for the NYC Ballet at age 14 brought upon a very strict food regime. Baked goods was such a “no-no” and have been restricted all my life from these foods. Until recently, it has become even more important to dive into baking and eating foods I naturally enjoy.
Baking demands exact measurements and ingredients, and doing things at a slower pace can help you feel calmer. Baking also provides a sense of aromatherapy, the smell of baked goods.. these kinds of scents tend to boost positivity and relaxation.
Following a recipe is wonderful, but one of the best parts of baking comes with the decorating portion of the project where creativity comes into play. The opportunity to express yourself (yes, even if it’s just with icing) can improve well-being as well as your ability to communicate.
