When life gives you aloe and cactus fruits.... make smoothies! 

I am blessed with a ginormous aloe patch on my Baja property, the barrel cactus are fruiting in abundance and my friends share passion fruit from their vine, so I whipped those up with some organic celery, cucumber, avocado, grass fed beef collagen peptides, maca and a little stevia. 
Gut healing, nutrient dense and wild food combo to fuel my morning!

Soothing the water element. 
Scorpio is deep water infused with the fluids of earthly existence. 

Bone marrow deep. 

With Mars in Scorpio, this viscous brew churns in subterranean rhythms and tempests. 
My go to yogic coping strategy during this transit is to activate the bladder and kidney meridians for harmonizing the flow of the water element. 

The Kidney Meridian has a crucial affect on adrenal function. Whether you are using this transit to do transformative inner work or just trying to keep your head above water in these wild times, supporting and optimizing adrenal function is critical to forward movement.

Using a tightly rolled yoga mat, I sit in Hero’s Pose with the mat right behind the knees. And then move it down 1/3 of the calf and then down again 2/3 of the way down the calf creating a deep and stimulating massage for multiple points along both meridians. I sit for 2 minutes at each station. 

This simple but deep practice has ushered me back to centrality and mission mult...

My first acorn creation!

Bacon, date, acorn crumble. 

This wheat free creation was made with hot leached acorns, teff and coconut flour, Baja dates, oats, sugar free bacon from humanely raised pigs, grass fed butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and a little bit of piloncillo. 

Acorns are a complete protein food, available to anyone in the vicinity of oaks for free and are relatively easy to process.

This is an evolving learning process for me, so stay tuned for more details on collecting and processing acorns. There are also many great resources already out there on this process starting with Farmer's Almanac and beyond.
