Grounding Cauliflower Apple Soup 

My instructor was talking just the other day about how she defines foods in two separate categories: “noisy” (inflammatory, irritating, disruptive) and “quiet” (peaceful, nourishing, easy to digest).

I need space to share my story. 

I am an open book. You don’t have to guess with me. If I’m sad, you’ll see it. If I’m happy, I show it. If I’m angry, oh gosh you’ll know it. If something important happens in my life, the people in my life always hear about it. But I’ve been noticing a trend lately, […]
