Sometimes you get your ass up out of bed and grace the day with a big bright smile. Sometimes this is not the case. I found myself waking up grumpy and tired, overworked and drained. I needed to make a change, and this change needed to happen ASAP.
I started by waking up early to enjoy breakfast. This was a special time, time for me, not my blog, not my emails, nor my phone; just me and my food. Savouring each and every bite. Eventually I started to love mornings. Like a sacred ritual specifically to love myself. I started to incorporate 3o minutes of yoga. This was not a series, or an audio class lead by a yoga master of any sort. No, this was time to practice those poses that I wanted to master. Crow, side crow, hand stand, head stand, arm balances, scorpion. I made it my morning ritual to wake up and challenge myself. I fell on my ass over and over again, but I wasn’t frustrated. This was play time.
After a month of practicing 30 minutes a day in my living room I mastered most of the items listed above. I am especially proud of my arm balances. 3 months ago I was really struggling with these, now I can do it almost on command. BAM!

What a beautiful wake up call. What did you have?
What is better than a good hearty breakfast burrito? The only thing that comes to mind is breakfast for dinner. Just because you are vegan or raw does not mean you have to miss out on the magic that is a burrito. I would eat a burrito everyday if I could… well technically I could, and maybe I will from now on…

Tonight We Feast On Breakfast For Dinner!
Tonight I had the pleasure of watching a carnivore devour a vegan breakfast wrap and then help himself to two additional helpings. I always have confidence in my food, I know that it is delicious.
I never get tired of watching someone really enjoy it. I’m talking about the facial expression, the happy noises, and the food-filled smile. The more food in your teeth, the happier I am.
Seconds and thirds are not an option in my home, they are mandatory. If you do not agree to seconds, you will go home with a doggy bag. That’s it, that’s all and you better love it.
They say that the way to a mans heart is through his stomach, but really isn’t that the way to anyone’s heart? Men, women, dogs… It doesn’t matter. Food prepared with love is an act of love and eating it feels fantastic.
