Vacation (but not summer) is Over…and a Guest Post at Picky Eating RD

August 2, 2011

Good Morning!  I returned from vacation several days ago, and I’ve been busy. I had to cancel my next trip because I didn’t pay attention to the start date of classes (I’m teaching two face-to-face classes this fall), so I will not be spending another week in Santa Monica eating at Planet Raw and walking [...]

Vacation Food Conundrum

June 27, 2010

We’re at Disney World. It’s great, but honestly, the food sucks. SUCKS. I suppose if we made reservations at some of the nicer places we could come up with some food that is not out of the freezer and processed (or drenched) beyond recognition—but that’s not on the itinerary this trip because it’s not really [...]

Summer Vacation

June 24, 2010

The last vacation I went on was to the Kripalu Institute last summer for a yoga workshop.  It was awesome, and Desiree Rumbaugh not only helped me change (improve) my yoga practice, but it also motivated me to try Blue Lotus Yoga in Rochester when I returned home. All I can say is Anusara yoga [...]
