  • My sister and me in Hawaii! It’s her first day in Hawaii ever. I took her snorkeling right away in Kealakekua Bay and then to a Luau. This island has so  much soothing feminine energy. Its very healing and so easy to feel happy and relaxed here. Can I maintain this when I go back to the mainland? People tend to drive very slow here and if you don’t slow down too, you will go a bit nuts. My sister and I have agreed to support each other in not rushing at all while we are here and to catch ourselves or each other if we start to rush. Being here reminds me of how much I rush all the time in my regular life and how much unnecessary stress it creates, how it makes me clench my stomach and tighten my breathing. I’ve decided to eliminate the word “hurry” from my vocabulary this week. Very UnAmerican, I know. How do you practice slowing down even if it means you don’t go the pace as everyone else around you? @lyndie1946 #hawaii #hawaiilife #hangloose #alohavibes #slowdown #slowdownchallenge #howslowcanwego #inthemoment
  • Oh, is that for me? Thank you, I would love some star fruit! #hawaiiangecko #starfruit #yesplease
  • Hawaii...the land of abundance. Fruit growing everywhere. I used to live here and it feels strange and good to be back 15 years later. Soaking in the mana. #starfruit #lilikoi #passionfruit, #bananas #papaya #noni #coconuts #avocados #citrus #macadamia #wildforaging #tropicalliving #livelocal #wildroosterseverywhere #eatrealfood #mana
  • Hell yes I eat red meat and I enjoy every bite. Vegan propaganda has infiltrated our society and along with it so many that question the life enhancing benefits of eating animals. In case you don’t know, please let me remind you that we as humans would not be here today if our ancestors suddenly decided to stop eating animals. Animal foods are not only the most important foods for our existence, their nutrients are essential for our survival and continued procreation. If only I could take back the 3 years of being vegan and vegetarian when I was in my early twenties. I didn’t do it because my body wanted me to eat that way but because of an “idea” I heard. A philosophy. That idea and philosophy depleted me deeply and it took me years to recover from. Now I am more grateful than ever for the high quality meat I eat. It gives me life, sustains me and nourishes me more than I ever experienced being a vegetarian. You can say yes to being a part of the cycle of life and have an honoring and respectful relationship with animals you depend upon or else step out of that cycle...but at what detriment to yourself? And the planet? #grassfedsteak #caulimashers #grilledasparagus #westonprice #paleo #keto #nourish #lifeforce #sustain
  • Yes, there are a few cool spots in Texas. I found this beautiful grotto this morning while wandering around the Zilker Botanical Gardens. As I have simplified my life immensely, I now have more space for moments like this. #beauty #nature #silence #gratitude
  • The abundance of summer! Graffiti Eggplant at Barton Creek Farmers Market. Since some bunny kept eating the eggplants in my garden, I was glad to find these at the market. Thanks Johnson’s Backyard Garden! I cut mine into chunks and stir fried in a hot wok with coconut oil, garlic, ginger, a yellow bell pepper and some crunchy snow peas. I added some water chestnuts, Tamari and mirin at the end. Oh so good!
  • Just had to snap a pic of these Tiger Striped Figs on display yesterday at Central Market. Such beauties! #yum #summerfruit #natureamazesme
