Day 52 of WFPB Lifestyle

It’s almost two months since the end of my 100 day juice fast. For all of my life before I have dieted, lost weight and then, in the space of a month or two, put it all back on again! I’m sure that if you have ever suffered with weight issues, you completely get what I’m talking about here! This time, after losing a massive amount of weight over the course of 100 days, something amazing has happened…I have not gained a single pound back over the past 52 days of eating! Not only that, but, I have continued to…

WFPB Lifestyle Transition:Day 3

This is Day 3 of my Whole Food Plant-Based, (WFPB) lifestyle. Why lifestyle? Well, the diet industry appears to be predicated upon a “lose it and carry on as before” approach to what is becoming the world’s biggest (excuse the pun) threat to health…obesity and its ensuing problems.

I’m wearing a Kath Kidston skirt over short leggings….

Goddess Permaculture 39…Exposed!

Thirty nine photographs of the Goddess at her best, as we rise towards Midsummer…a mere twenty four days away!

I won’t take up too much of your time with words, for I would rather you simply enjoy the images, as I have done whilst drinking my morning coffee and walking the land. Many thanks to Majella and Derek who brought me the beautiful little Oak…

The Simplicity of the Morning

“Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself.” ― Henry David Thoreau  Half light and shadows as the morning comes into view. Reflections and sunlight as the day rises. The silent beauty of the morning is a template for us all to follow into day…quiet simplicity. Gazing around the cottage as I follow through on early morning rituals. Checking where Sammy-Bear spent the night, opening the door for Jack to go out… Lighting the stove to boil the kettle… Looking for where I put my camera last…
