My Top Solutions To Overeating | Jessica Sepel So many people I meet these days tend to overeat- for both physical and emotional reasons. Food is here to nourish us and to provide us with the necessary nutrients to function optimally. We must treat food as sacred and healing. I believe when we develop a stronger mind body awareness and love for ourselves, we will make better food choices and use food to nourish our bodies rather than to fill certain emotional gaps. Also, when we develop a stronger connection with our bodies- we can learn to tune into our signals of fullness and even begin to respect those signals. Here are some tips: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.

(3) Heirloom Skills for Sustainable Living How to Lose Weight Without Counting CaloriesKimberly Snyder Counting calories is not something I ever encourage for anyone, ever. It’s simply not a natural way of evaluating what to eat or when or if something is healthy or not. We were meant to eat whole foods and listen to our bodies, not add up a bunch of numbers. By sticking to the real foods and being more in tune with your body, you will not only stay slim but become more beautiful overall. Let me also point out that calorie-counting was only introduced a few decades ago, and before that people as a whole were much more slim, without obsessing about numbers, and also sticking to whole, unprocessed foods. Not all calories are created equal. Some calories make you feel full while others don’t, so you’ll want to eat more and more when you eat certain meals or snacks (have you ever polished off a bag of chips without realizing it?). Dairy is difficult to digest as it is not a natural food for humans, and it is a top allergen. Read labels, but for the ingredients, not calories. Love to all,

Our Best Bites Seasoning with Herbs and Spices One thing Kate and I will be doing this year is addressing some of the topics that we frequently get questions about. Kate wrote a great post recently on uses for different types of salts and we have posts on oils and flours too (okay so Kate did all of them). Recently on facebook I mentioned I was cleaning out my disastrous spice cabinet and that sparked some questions on the subject. Since it’s something we get lots of questions about via email and recipe comments, we thought it was time to get spicy! If you’re bummed out there’s not a recipe today, no fear! Fresh vs. Both fresh and dried herbs and spices have their place in the kitchen and can often be used interchangeably. 1 part dry = 3 parts fresh So if a recipe calls for a tablespoon of fresh chopped basil, you’ll want to use only 1/3 of that amount in a dry herb which would be 1 teaspoon. If you’re interested in growing your own herbs, click here for more information. Different forms Powder or Granulated? Stocking the kitchen

Wildwood Survival - Wilderness Survival, Tracking, Nature, Wilderness Mind What Caffeine Really Does to Your Brain Some of it is what you think, a lot of it isn’t. See what is fact and what is all in the mind. “Legend has it that an observant goatherd named Kaldi discovered coffee in Ethiopia somewhere between about 300 and 800 A.D. He noticed that his goats did not sleep at night after eating coffee berries. Ever since then humans have been fascinated with caffeine, and rightly so. Some of its effects are strange and contradictory. Hopefully you’ll find at least one or two things here to surprise you… 1. The goatherd Kaldi may have been right about his goats, but not necessarily about humans. The research finds that the vast majority of people have worked out how to use it. Even then, there are studies where they give people caffeine secretly before they go to bed. 2. It’s not just poor sleep, because people think caffeine is at least a bit bad for them, they blame all kinds of non-specific problems on it: headaches, bad night’s sleep, feeling jittery, and so on. 3. 4. 5. 6. Or will you? 7. 8. 9. 10.
