I did a holistic self-evolution course with yoga, meditation, and Ayurvedic elements while in India—so cooking and healing with medicine.

imagine this: it’s the break of dawn, you pull on your red rubber boots & oversized windbreaker. you gather your locally-made handwoven basket, packed with nourishing whole superfoods; brazil nuts, goji berries, mulberries & toasted coconut. the perfect nosh for an afternoon of foraging. as the sun rises, you set out into the foothills of Alberta, with the intention of filling your pantry shelves with seeds, herbs, mushrooms & other foods from the great outdoors.

But with so many superfoods to choose from,  navigating your local health foods store can be a daunting task. & we don’t know about your, but this little foraging adventure we described isn’t our ideal Saturday morning (we’re more whole grain pancakes in bed & spin class kinda gals in the winter).
