Spring Has Sprung

Spring is officially here, as are the blue skies and blossoming trees and flowers.  Nature, especially this time of year, is a constant reminder of the vast power in the universe.  It is a reminder of the cycles that occur regardless of what is going on with each human beings created lives.  This i adore.  It speaks volumes of the human mind, both positive and negative. Mostly though, it speaks to our interconnectedness if we pause long enough to take notice.  As spring continues to unveil itself to us, may we not forget that we are equally a part of the cycles.  This time of year is full of budding potential, fresh, new ideas and inspirations as well as change and excited energy.  Nourish has been very busy embracing change, and being inspired not only by nature but by all of our clients and friends.  Here in photos are a few of the things that we have been up to.  Most of our energy has been spent lately on creating vegan/gluten free and vegan/raw food meals plans for private clients.  Its has been invigorating, creative, positive and lovely.  I am beyond grateful to be able to do what I love and have amazingly grateful clients who appreciate it.  Happy Spring!!

Season of the cold and other facets of hibernation

Rest.  We all need it.  Physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually; we need rest.  Winter is a time that nudges, and often forces us to pay attention to this need.  Whether i allow myself an extra few minutes in bed when I awake, or stay meditating longer than usual, or stay home on a day off to create nourishing food, read and just simply listen to what my body needs, these are all forms of rest for me.  I have been focused on raw food recipes more and more, as well as home juicing to nourish my mind, body and soul during this very important time in our cycle of the seasons.  On this January afternoon I see sunshine, blue skies and breathe crisp, cold air as I write this post.  This is an oddity for Portland, OR at this time of year, but it is what I have had the pleasure of experiencing for numerous days in a row now.  I feel grateful and blessed.  Enjoy the images of exploration both in nature and in my kitchen.  Be Well!
