This was a fun interview with Jim the creator of Travel Mammal, it was a single question - What does food mean to you?
"Whether we’ve truly made the connection between food and our well being doesn’t matter; what we eat affects us the same regardless of our awareness."  Lisa Labute
For my full answer, check out the interview and have a look around the site, there is lots of wonderful content about travel, food, culture and experience.

photo-53 It's January and it's time to think about things - all sorts of things. Think about your health, your job, your life, your family. We want it all and you know what? We can. Why not? Funny thing is, it all starts with you. When you're looked after and eating well, good food has the power to transform. Transform your state of mind, your overall health, your outlook on life and even how you treat people. It starts with you and always comes back to you. So be proud that you're taking this vital step to helping shift the world consciousness. I'm feeling pretty damn proud about our contribution, so much so, I think I may just update my Linkedin profile.

There is a lot to be excited about, they've added more classes and a 30 Day Challenge starting Monday, yes, yes I'm one day late writing this and signing up but don't you worry I'll catch up and so will you.

Basically that's two months for the price of one... ever wonder how good your ass could look... well now is the time to find out. Remember to order the Goods for pickup at the studio and experience just how much magic can be conjured through good food and movement.

Naked Green Woman Yip yip Canada Day is here! If you're off to the cottage or hanging with the fam, planning around all the food needs can seem like a total pain, but it's not impossible. You know we're all about what you DO eat and less about what you DON'T eat. Food is personal, don't we know it, but all of us feel better when eating fresh veggies and fruits on the regular. So enjoy your weekend with friends, indulge if you choose, just eat/drink your greens too. Make a couple of big jars of smoothies before you leave, they'll keep for 3 to 4 days refrigerated and ensure you're keeping your system moving and nourished. Cottage Buddy  3-4 bunches of bok choy 2 organic carrots 1" peeled ginger 1 lemon, juiced 1 red delicious organic apple 1 bosc organic pear 1 tbsp hemp oil 1 tray ice cubes  2 cups filtered water Blend all ingredients except ice until smooth, add ice and blend again quickly. Now have fun and enjoy the sun. Oh and The Weekender is another great travel smoothie recipe.
