Is your honey real honey or just "sugar syrup"?

Adulterated food is a serious issue. One more reason to support local farmers and beekeepers.

Australia's biggest listed honey company and some of the country's largest supermarket chains face accusations of unwittingly selling "fake" honey. Read more...

Hive inspection today and I'm happy to say we have loads of eggs and larvae which means my queen is still there and doing a great job. They are bringing in pollen from the willows and poplar and are happily buzzing away.

This is our first successful overwinter 🙌🐝

The supers are still heavy with honey so lots of food for them to build for the coming season.

They are my meditation, my quiet time, my bliss. 💞

What a great start to a beautiful morning 🌞

Interesting.
I have seen this with my clients as we peel back the layers of the onion.
Sometimes the foods that feed us (or don't feed us) are often not food at all.

Sometimes we get derailed from a routine, it happens, that's life. But there is no need for the harsh punishment or hurtful words, just pick up right where you left off and carry on 😍

Here is one of my faves that makes me feel great! My hubby and I call it our "dirt" 🤣 I bet that makes you want some doesn't it? 😅

1-2 tsp organic sulfur (MSM)
1/2 tsp shilajit
Mix with yin yang water
(Today I used hot Chaga tea and room temperature filtered water)

Benefits of sulfur (take morning/night)
Oxygenate cells
Pull shilajit deeper into cells
Lowers inflammation
Aids in repairing the gut lining (good bye leaky gut 🤩)
Great for hair, skin and nails
Reduces joint pain
Repairs tissue and muscle
And the list goes on and on and on !!

Benefits of shilajit (take morning):
Adaptogen
Increase energy and vitality
Brain health
Regulates hormones
And so many more benefits!!

Benefits of Chaga tea:
Anti-inflammatory
Immunomodulator
Anti-viral
Regulate blood sugar
Antioxidant
Anti-tumor
And on and on and on!!!

Benefits of yin yang water and how to make it (take often):
2/3 hot water/tea
1/3 cold/room temperature water.
Increase circulation
Keeps head clear
Increases lower heat (digestion)
And of course hydration!!
*if you are generally a hot person, flip the water*

Bottoms up!!

I guess you could say my journey to health began 9 years ago when I made the decision to remove all chemicals from my house.

Over those 9 years my relationship with those little cloths has deepened to a level that I would have never ever thought possible. A level that only a fellow #norwex user would ever understand.

I think it is an understatement to say that the #envirocloth has almost literally (slight exaggeration) saved my life on more than one occasion.

These "big boys" have wiped up an unspeakable amount of puke from my vehicle (my daughter never travelled well). Now today, on our first road trip in forever, they almost seamlessly cleaned up the carpets of my new SUV when three cups of my beautiful, yummy, homemade #cashewsourcream was accidently kicked over 😭😭

With a mixture of some intense 😡 and deep 😢 while I cleaned it up I was very thankful that I didn't forget my buddies. My cloths. And in this situation, my hero's.

Top bottled water brands contaminated with plastic particles: report

We have all been told about the harmful impacts of bottled water.
Alternatively, choose to buy a counter filter for your home and a great glass water bottle that you love.

The world's leading brands of bottled water are contaminated with tiny plastic particles that are likely seeping in during the packaging process, according to a major study across nine countries published Wednesday. "Widespread contamination" with plastic was found in the study, led by

Let me just say I NEED to look at these pretty flower pics of my garden right now. Still under a tonne of snow here with no sign of spring in sight.

With the winter blues still lingering I find I really need to keep on top of my health and mindset, cuz if I don't, it's just a downward spiral to poor eating and sleep deprivation for this gal.

Mindset plays a huge role in how we show up in the world, it also can sabotage our success. All this is deeply connected to the story we tell ourselves. Being able to release that story and show up the way we were born to is a pretty magical feeling.
Our story and our feelings attached to that story also have the ability to cause us physical distress. Skin issues, gut issues, joint pain, all these are just our body speaking loudly to us, telling us we need to heal.

Listen to it, give it a voice.

Do you struggle with this?
Do you have aches and pains that you don't think you should?
Do you have trouble digesting your food?
Do you find yourself getting angry at the slightest bump in the road?
Or highly reactive to a situation, only to look back and realize it wasn't really that big of a deal?
Do you binge eat?

The list could go on and on.....

If any of these sound familiar than reach out and let's have a chat. You will be happy you did

In 2003 I bought My sister and I our first "twin mugs."
Years of use and we've both gone through a few. The time has come again when we can sip on a nice warm drink and be reminded that our closeness has nothing to do with our geographic proximity and everything to do with what's inside.

Thank you @burge.on it's beautiful 💚

Beautiful sunny day 🌞 but still winter. Bee check today showed that they were doing some house cleaning with the warmer temps.

THIS means they are still alive in there.
THIS means we have a strong, healthy hive.
THIS means that next harvest season we should be able to have some of our own honey.

This is not our first time with bees. We were ambitious with our last hive and moved them from BC to Alberta with minimal beekeeping knowledge. The result was improper hive wrapping for the winter and a dead colony come spring. As sad as it was, we did get to enjoy copious amounts of yummy honey.

Starting fresh again last spring with new colony and a beginners mind we learned that with proper wrapping and a strong, healthy hive the bees will survive even the harshest winters.

I was in love the first time we did them and I am in love again. They are nature's miracles.

Go Deeper, Not Wider

My daughter asked me earlier tonight what new holiday I would create if I could. At first a superficial list went running through my head while I listened to the kids come up with their own crazy ideas
~ a month of partying and staying up late, no chores for a week, video game week ~

It made me giggle a bit.

As I looked out my window while tidying up the dishes before we head out to soccer it was obvious what holiday I would create.

My holiday would be a month of back to the basics...the REAL basics. No running water, no electricity, no vehicles, no phones. As I smiled and dreamed of how this would look I also started to spiral on how it would be implemented.

We are fortunate to be in a position where we could make this a reality with fairly little disruption in our lives, but that is not the case for most.

Reading this post would be a beautiful fit to my "back to the basics" holiday. Having the down time would encourage all of us to "go deeper."

I have, and still do fall victim to the "shiny object" syndrome (as I call it). Not in the physical consumerism but in the idea consumerism. Where when things get tough I feel the urge to start something new. Then get angry that my success is not where I want it to be.

It would be easy to blame this on social media and the abundance of information out there but that is simply not true. The blame (horrible, negative word but fits) lies on my lack of focus in going "deeper."

This brings me back to my WORD for the year: PERSEVERE

And now I just may add in GOING DEEPER

I keep imagining a tradition I’d like to invent. After you’re established in your career, and you have some neat stuff in your house, you take a whole year

I love watching my little girl learning how to use her new spirit animal cards. I hear her speaking about gratitude and setting intentions and being more present in the day, walking tall and with purpose.
I understand that Oracle cards might not be for everyone but being more connected with your spirituality is something I believe everyone needs more of.

I'm so thankful that my daughter is at a place where she is able to receive these cards with curiosity and innocence.

She is my little mini me 😍

Moms Tell Me to Drink - Katie Bickell

This post passed through a "moms" group I'm in and I really felt compelled to share it.

Let me briefly explain why it brought me tears, and it just might again as I write this.

I was that little girl, only my mother was NOT the sober mom in this post. I have had to work through many triggers over the years around alcohol and I feel pretty proud of where I have come. Only MY triggers are not of me drinking but of everyone else around me drinking. I am HIGHLY sensitive to it. Some may even call me a 'fun sucker' actually, and I am OK with that because I've learned to love who I am and the journey I am on.

Being highly sensitive to alcohol and parenting combined I too see how widely this has become an acceptable joke when making a passing comment about how tough it is to be a parent. Now I don't necessarily think every one of those comments is a reality, but the thoughts may be. And when we focus on those thoughts and the struggles we have as parents, over time it becomes justified to indulge in a drink to 'take the edge off,' or 'unwind a little.'

Truth is, we don't need reminding of how hard it is to parent. Every parent already knows that. What this article pointed out beautifully is to be reminded of being present. It all goes by so quickly and if we are not careful, it will all pass and leave us with regret. Or the weight on our kids that they were too hard to deal with. Or that life is hard and that it helps to have a drink to get through it.

It takes everything in me to hold back from lashing out on the negative effects of alcohol and the lasting impressions it leaves behind on a child. The silent coping mechanisms you don't realize you are teaching. So I will end this post with this...
Instead of focusing on how hard parenting is and all that could go wrong and how you are going to cope with it, look at the beauty of all you are doing RIGHT! It's just a change of perspective. And when we can focus on the positive and praise the good we are doing it all becomes MUCH easier to deal with. And maybe, just maybe you won't need that glass or two or three at the end of the day to 'relax' before bed.

Can you tell this hit a sore spot? 😜 It will always be a work in progress and I'm ok with that.

On Saturday afternoon, my eldest daughter and I went to Dollarama to stock up on slumber party supplies. We skipped into the store holding hands because she was happy to have her mother to herself. She wore a pink dress over mermaid leggings and couldn’t stop twirling in the aisles. We filled our ...

Tonight is 'date night'
....
With my kefir grains 😂
Everyone else was early to bed but my babies needed to be fed.

I have been rehabilitating some old grains and I'm so thankful I didn't give up on them . It has taken 5 plus months but they are bouncing back.
Something I have learned over my years fermenting...
- not something you can start off an expert in, even If you 'read' all the books
- no two jars are equal, even if you Did the exact same thing to them
- you need to pay attention
- they need LOVE, the good old fashion kind like hugs and kisses and beautiful music and kind words (for real). I hug and kiss my jars daily!
- ferments are alive and need to be fed properly
-because they are alive, their needs can change with the seasons which points back to 'paying attention'
-some ferments are forgiving but some are not
- fermenting is like parenting, ask one question to 10 different fermenters and get 11 different answers 😜

Let's hear some fermenting stories, the GOOD, the BAD and the UGLY.

I'll go first!
I once had a second ferment of kombucha I forgot about in a warm cupboard above my stove and came home to a kitchen MASSACRE of glass (was in a flip top maple syrup jar so THICK glass) and dried, sticky, strong smelling kombucha stuck to everything! I will never forget to burp my bottles daily ever again! 😣😂
