Fruits and veggies are our bffs, but did you know they could bring insects into your home if not properly washed?! We’ve got lots more of these home care tips from Rove Pest Control over on the blog today. After all, having a clean living space is a part of selfcare!
Are you guilty of rushing from task to task, job to job, thought to thought? I know I am 🙋🏼♀️. We are human- it happens. .
Chinese medicine teaches us the very importance of S L O W I N G DOWN. Rushing stagnates the Qi and does our body a huge disservice. .
Stagnate Qi comes out as anxiety, stress, pain, tightness in the chest, insomnia, obsession. PAUSE. Take a deep breath and try just sitting. That’s all, just sit. No phone, no TV. Just sit. 🙏🏻
This time of year, learning to slow down is key. Sip tea, breathe deeply and just S I T. .

In winter, we spend more time indoors and get more exposure to indoor air pollutants from household cleaners, etc. Reduce your exposure by avoiding synthetic fragrances and using essential oils instead. Learn how via link in profile.

My husband stayed home from work today because it’s a holiday week and it’s was snowing and he just felt like it... so I’m sure he regretted not getting out the door this morning when I told him that he’d be doing a mini photo shoot for me! Guess what you guys? He did a pretty dang good job considering he was rolling his eyes the whole time 🙄— I just had to play in the snow and obvi I looked just like a ski 🐰 in my @withlovepeach

Currently reading 📖 - great recipes for nontoxic cleaning supplies and skincare... even jewelry cleaner!
I don't know about you, but this time of year wreaks havoc on my skin! The constant change in temperatures from inside to outside, and the drying effects of both the heat inside and bitter cold outside leaves me dry, flaky, and a little dull (my skin and my mood, tbh)! 🤦🏼♀️❄️❄️
I love to lean on my beauty foods to help me get that inside out glow when temperatures drop, which is why I created the 'Beautiful Skin From Within' Smoothie with my favourite Boston juice bar, @nourishyoursoul
We combined skin repairing collagen with glow giving, antioxidant packed pitaya, plumping and smoothing plant based fats from the almond milk and almond butter, gut healthy probiotics, cauliflower for fibre, and silica rich rosewater. 🍒🌰🌹
You could make this at home, but quite honestly even I can't make taste quite as good they do in store! November is the last month this smoothie will be on the menu, so grab it at their Winchester or Beacon Hill location whilst you can! 😁

For those of you that know me, you know I am a yoga lover- a yogi if you will. I also own a small, cozy yoga studio- @the_yogalounge.
I mention this, because from my practice I’ve become accustomed to setting intentions. I started setting them IN yoga, but as I got deeper into my practice I leaned that I could easily set them anywhere, anytime. —
Shifting gears to me, the Acupuncturist, I still rely on my intentions. Each patient, each needle has a thoughtful intention. An intention specific to each patient. Intentions of healing, ease, peace. —
Do you set intentions? What is your intention for today? ❤️

Cranberries, cranberries, cranberries, oh my! This time last night I was walking (possibly power walking) around the Gov’t Center parking garage searching for my car (on the wrong deck 🤷🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️) whilst toting a bag of cranberries from an excellent evening of cooking 🥘 using a local crop brought to @bpmkitchen
from @bluewaterfarmscranberries @stillmansfarmbpm
once again put together an amazing yet simple to cook menu of seasonal recipes all including these bog berries! I prepared yummy food with new friends, which I’ve decided is one of my new favorite things. Once I get the Israeli Rice and Cranberry BBQ sauce recipes, I’ll probably share on the blog- they were that delish! If you’ve never hit a cooking class at @bostonpublicmarket

post about avocado toast? This is just to show that I do LOVE it, even if it often isn’t a complete meal without an egg or in this case some delicious fresh ricotta.
Nicely done @tendergreens #myplate
