Weekly Issue No°3 – Water Guns and Wu wei as Weapons of Choice

on
April 16, 2019
Happy New Year (again). It’s Songkran in Thailand, a festival celebrating the traditional Thai New Year, held in April and marked by the throwing and sprinkling of water. On Koh Tao island it was thankfully limited to one-day, during which I voluntarily sequestered myself. I know what you’re thinking--girl, that’s extreme; or you’re just getting old(er). The latter is true - we are all getting older; the former, not so! The epidemiologist in me will not allow myself to be splashed with water from random, suspect water sources. Fleeing the water guns led me to a day of sea-gazing, reconnected me to the practice of Wu wei, effortless action.

Banana Nut Breakfast Smoothie

on
April 15, 2019
Here is a great breakfast smoothie idea! If you are looking for a meal replacement smoothie then this recipe is for you. The rolled oats make it easy to add fiber to your smoothie without a ton of calories. I like to soak mine in a cup of water in the fridge before blending to soften them and give my smoothie an even smoother texture. I’m a peanut butter fanatic as always you can ditch the peanut butter, or replace with cacao or some other flavor that will make this breakfast smoothie yummy to you. With the rolled oats and flax seeds hunger is guaranteed to miss well until the afternoon.

Weekly Issue No°2 – What the Cat on my Terrace Taught Me About Setting Boundaries

on
April 7, 2019
I'm settling into my flat and have a regular visitor whom I call Cat. This week I practiced boundary setting with Cat who at first thought he could barge his way into my chambers and roll around on my yoga mat without consequence. I coronated Smoothie as the seventh food group and am geeking out on flax seeds.

Weekly Issue No°1 – Hi from Koh Tao Island

on
April 1, 2019
Hello from Koh Tao Island, Thailand. I’ve been struggling to find a way to keep all of my friends, family and readers up to date with what’s happening in my life. I’ve decided to publish a digest with the coolest things that I’ve found or pondered upon in the previous week. In Weekly Issue No° 1 you will see that my nomadic wanderings have considerably slowed down. I now live on Koh Tao Island, in a nice flat cooled by ceiling fans. It backs up to a jungle-like area and I'm still not sure why I don't have mosquitos. I motor bike everywhere and keep island time. Although the island is small, there is so much to discover. This week I conquered my fear of going down steep hills, found a zero waste store, and got addicted to peanut butter kale smoothies.

Kale, Peanut Butter and Goji Smoothie

on
March 29, 2019
I’ve been about a week on Koh Tao island and I accidentally joined the cult of Crossfit. Yep, the yoga guide has crossed over to the dark side. I kid, I kid. Each morning I rouse myself at 6 am-ish, do my 20 minute meditation, and start blending baby. This Kale, Peanut Butter and Goji recipe is one of my favorite go-tos that kickstart my day.
