The morning air is fresh. Winter is coming.

But my spring is here. My rebirth. My rising to the challenge of putting on the plate what it is I have been born to do.

And that is to learn, with my mind, my body, my spirit everything I can in order to have a great body of accumulated knowledge and experience so that when one day, as often happens in my life, someone comes to me with a concern, I can reach back into the shelves of my life, grab a few bits and pieces and present them as an offering, as a maybe, as a gesture of ‘I hope this helps’. 

And that is what Patheya is about. That is what my life is about.

Detox During Lent

I like to use Lent as an excuse to detox at least once a year. 
The beginning of Spring is the perfect time for me to change some of the comfortable and unhealthy habits adapted over the winter months.
It’s also a time to recall the importance of food in our lives. Where food comes from, how it’s digested, and its effects on the body. To eat with awareness. Actually, I like to use the entire lent period to consciously remember what I'm doing on this planet.

This year I am using the Fit for Life guidelines, which include the Fit for Life food ladder

Fresh Fruit and Fruit Juices
Fresh Vegetables Juice and Salads
Steamed Vegetables, Raw Nuts & Seeds
Grains, Breads, Potatoes, Legumes
Meat, Chicken, Fish, Dairy

You're welcome to join me.
