Gee, I've had a bit of a sweet tooth lately haven't I? Hey, knowing these delicious treats are all so incredibly good for me... why not make them all the time! I just love having a little piece of something after dinner or with my tea in the afternoon. Salted Caramel Nut Butter Cups are as heavenly as they look and delicious as they sound. They bring to mind a certain Easter candy whose first name rhymes with Bradbury... chocolate covered ooey-goey sweetness - minus the guilt and with all the glow! Check it out... Continue reading

I'm a meditator :) It's a daily practice for me. Simply start by sitting comfortably for 20 minutes a day watching your breath, noticing the thoughts as they come in, like clouds floating by, no judgement. Just notice them then let them go. Meditation happens to you. Feel free to read this post I wrote on the subject: http://www.stylenectar.com/stylenectar/2013/01/macaccinos-meditation-more.html or watch this video: http://www.stylenectar.com/stylenectar/2013/12/spirituality-a-vintage-find-an-anti-aging-tonic.html Much Love, Juliane

There's a reason we're drawn to walking barefoot on the beach, plunging our hands into damp soil gardening, or simply falling asleep on the grass... it's why yoga is practiced with bare feet and Qi Gong is practiced outdoors ... and it all has to do with a concept called Earthing, or, Grounding. The Benefits of Earthing Essentially, if you're too busy to read through the forthcoming explanation, go... (continued) Continue reading

If we love, we have and feel love. If we’re kind, we have and feel kindness. Contrary to what conditioning tells us, we only ever have our own experience—people, places, and circumstances truly are irrelevant. Any of it can be icing on the cake, but they’re never the cake! - Cheri Huber Every problem has a gift for you in its hands. - Richard Bach The soul always knows what to do to heal itself....

Every so often, I'll stumble upon a game changer smack dab in the middle of writing a post on the very subject. Today was just one of those moments as I have just completely erased this entire post, to start from scratch after making not one, but two new discoveries! A bit of background... This week's Sprouted Forbidden Rice Salad with Cranberries & Pecans incorporated an amazing and simple sprouting technique I've been excited to share with you for some time. Sprouting or "blooming" rice is a simple and fascinating way to achieve a beautifully soft, fluffy textured rice without ever having to turn on the hot stove! It's a super cool process wherein ...

Fresh Corn Chowder with a Kick is a celebration of summer in a bowl! This simple and delicious recipe takes full advantage of local farmers' markets, currently overflowing with the plumpest, juiciest ears of succulent corn.

More on this in my personal comments after the recipe below :) Continue reading

Fresh homemade Almond Milk: the creamiest, freshest milk you've ever had. Originally, I began this post with all the amazing benefits of drinking homemade Nut Milks. However, since I absolutely adore making them for how fabulous they taste - let's lead with flavor! We're talking creamy, richness like you won't believe. And, while the subtle, sweet, mellow flavor of nut milk alone is very satisfying, there is a whole range of sweeteners from dates, honey,... Continue reading

Eating a wide variety of different foods is crucial to a healthy foodstyle to ensure we're getting all the nutrients we require and to guard against overdosing on any one particular nutrient as well - as the saying goes "the medicine is in the dose". One of the ways I add variety to my diet (ok, really I just do this cause I think it's fun) is by shopping at the various specialty markets in our area. I know, I know, eating local has all sorts of great wisdom behind it, so do that too. However, it can be like taking a mini trip into another culture to step into a place that caters to a totally different region of the world. (Shopping the local markets is one of my favorite parts of travelling as well) For example, the Asian market in our area is brimming with huge piles of the most amazing tropical produce - stuff that's totally unavailable in typical grocery stores - from the exotic Dragonfruit featured here, to amazing selections of wild mushrooms, my fav indulgence, creamy, custardy Durian ...

The first words that come to mind are, SO GOOD! I'm in love with these Cheesy Steak Fries. They satisfy on so many levels. For starters, they just look fabulous right! And you can't beat their yummy, cheesy coating amped up with the perfect kick of spice. But wait til you bite into the fantastic contrast of their ever-so-sweet interior - crisp & juicy - a beautifully unexpected pairing to their deliciously complex jackets. Satisfying and addictive. Yes, such a combo exists. As in, every time you open the fridge you'll be smiling at that other half of jicama, knowing you'll be turning it into another platter of Cheesy Steak Fries the very next day. What to serve with these cheesy fries? I like them alongside a side salad or this thick, creamy milkshake :) Now those are amazing combos we can feel great about! Continue reading
