Winding down for sleep is the biggest time of ritual in my day. I always try to have a sit down dinner with friends or family by 7 PM or so, followed with the necessary clean up and at least 10 minutes of movement. Most often a walk around the docks but sometimes gentle yoga is what I need.
Most evenings I steep a jar of dream tea I picked and dried myself. It's a blend of passionflower, chamomile, rose petals and ashwagandha. If I don't hydrate well before bed, I find I wake up very thirsty.Read More
There is nothing with more power to impact our health than the food & drink we put into our bodies. For me, food must be both nourishing & pleasurable. Life is too short to eat bad! I grew up on a farm with a kitchen garden so I was spoiled with ripe-off-the-vine produce at a young age. The amplified flavor and nutrients of fresh produce taught me that shopping at local farmers markets is best for our bodies. Also, by shopping locally, we massively reduce our carbon footprint. I am spoiled at the moment in Berkeley with farmers markets daily, but I've been to dozens of markets in dozens of towns and they're just as good.Read More

For me, even if I am out late one night, I feel healthiest when I stick to my wake up routine. Sleeping in does not do good things for me…Read More
Inspired by the vibrant pink jars of agua de jamaica sitting on countertops around Mexico and Moon Juice Cookbook's Petal & Berry Tonic, I spun my own tantalizing pink drink - sans sugar, plus lots of vitamin C rich superfoods. Made from the deep pink hibiscus flowers, it has a tartness pleasant and cooling to the whole body.Read More
It's amazing to me that menstruation is such a taboo subject still. It is so NORMAL. I am no expert in menstruation, but I have transformed my monthly cycle from a time of dread to my favorite time of the month.
In 2016, after a year abroad traveling in a dozen countries, something went wrong with my health. I developed an allergy to animals, started getting full body hives when I exercised or experienced drastic temperature changes, my previously benign periods started to HURT and my skin became dry and more prone to hormonal breakouts. All auto-immune problems, I figured out…Read More
