Happy May! It’s hot here in Southern CA, so it’s definitely time to be outside getting the (container) garden in gear, and loading up on fresh and alive foods…

Starting today, I am a monthly contributor to the Breast Cancer Yoga Blog, and will be posting articles on vegan diet and new recipes each month. I’m extremely excited to be part of the contributor family there, and look forward to the amazing information that will be shared by everyone.

You can visit the blog to read my first article, Eat Your Way to Health & Vitality with a Plant-Based Diet , and find my 2 new recipes. And while you’re there, enjoy some of the other wonderful content, such as this article on the Ahimsa Trinity by Yogini Kaliji.
