A daily field trip could be as simple as enjoying the moment outdoors with intention, sharing a moment with a child or grandchild with intention, or whispering in the wind with intention.

A superfood defined by wikipedia is “used to describe foods with supposed health benefits.” With that definition my mind immediately goes to foods like kale, spinach, asparagus, apples, cucumbers, onions, swiss chard and sauerkraut. These ‘superfoods’ all have definite health benefits that we have been enjoying for generations! Did you know that as of 2007 the marketing term of “superfoods” is […]

stomach upset

As I sit here writing this blog, I am getting over a stomach bug. A bad nasty little creature! I wanted to share what I learned about healing during this virus. First, is that I love my Epica more than ever! Wondering about my faithful companion?

Wolfert with friends

The word alone can set off a myriad of feelings; none positive that I know of. Fear, pity, empathy, anger and sorrow – to name a few. None of which this strong willed lady bought into for more than 20 minutes. After all, she said “what am I going to do, cry about it?” If you have had someone you care […]

I’m on a quest to swap out as many products as I can in my house that have harmful chemicals with ones that don’t cause impairment. I started a while back by getting into essential oils, and making some of my own products, but got distracted.  So I’m going to give it my best shot again and see what I can accomplish […]

I remember when chia was introduced as a ‘superfood’ and the trendy thing to buy. The truth is what goes around comes around. Chia dates back to about 2500 B.C. as a food source. It was looked upon as a great fount of energy; a food staple in the Aztec and Myan populations. Oh, and for those of us old enough to remember, let’s not […]
