Lemon Drop Coconut Snowballs are delectable bites of bliss! Enjoy as a delicious pick-me-up snack, a festive holiday party dessert, or a pre/post workout protein boost. I served them at my recent Yoga Workshop... always a hit. Without further ado... let's get to the recipe :) Continue reading

As discussed in Part I, Pranayama, in Yoga, is the practice of controlling the breath, which is the source of our pranah, or vital life force. If we control the breath, we control the mind. Stated differently, fast breathing = restless mind; still breath = still mind and clear perception. When the breath is still, the mind is still. Pranayama, the constriction of airways via controlled breathing techniques, leads to higher levels of CO2 which improves O2 delivery throughout the tissues of the body and dilates brain capillaries - creating an incredible health cascade. Without further ado, let's look further into the incredible benefits of Pranayama Practice, a bit more of the fascinating science behind it and learn a simple Pranayama technique we can employ anywhere, anytime to induce a calm clear...

Hi Sara, Thank you for your comment and kind words! Carob is a great substitute - in fact I often use it 50/50 w/ the Cacao to cut back on the caffeine naturally present in Cacao. There are a ton of antioxidants and iron and magnesium in Cacao but it also does have a stimulating affect that some people would rather avoid - therefore, using Carob can be an excellent choice. Have a beautiful day :) Much love, Juliane

Kenzo had been paralyzed in all four legs for two weeks. He wasn’t eating, he slept only on his side and he never even tried to get up. Prescription medications had no effect. His owners were on a mission to find a solution, and that’s when they found Dr. Valérie Trudel’s acupuncture and osteopathy clinic. When Kenzo arrived at the clinic, he seemed to be in pain. Dr. Trudel’s first instinct was to prepare his owners for the possibility of euthanasia. Obviously, that’s not a reality any pet owner wants to face, so they made up their mind to try everything they could. They knew the journey ahead would be long. Dr. Trudel performed acupuncture on Kenzo and his owners decided to wait a full 24-hours before making a snap judgement about the results. Kenzo arrived lying on his side. After the first treatment, he left lying on his stomach. Dr. Trudel saw him again two weeks later; he was... Continue reading

Hi CES, It's lovely to meet you! Thank you for your excellent question. It's probably ok food combining since we're blending everything and not using that terribly much cacao. I personally don't have any problems with it whatsoever and I am fairly sensitive to improper food combining. That said, it's an individual thing as all our bodies are different so listen to your body and if it works well for you great! Otherwise, you could simply leave out/reduce the cacao/almond milk (sub just enough water to get the blender going for the milk). Let me know how it works out for you! And, as always let me know if you have any other questions, comments or insights. I love to hear from you! Have a beautiful day :) Much Love, Juliane

Yoga is a spiritual discipline dating back to some 5000 years in the history of Indian philosophy, its purpose, mainly to unleash spiritual and mental powers of an individual. However, in recent times yoga has been extremely popular in the context of fighting stress, anxiety and depression in these times of industrialization and our super-fast lifestyles. Apart from the spiritual aspects, the physiological benefits acquired from yoga have recently had radical scientific understandings behind its workings. It also moderates the surge and the production of chemicals in the body that affect us mentally, physically as well as psychosomatically. So, let's understand the science behind yoga that makes it so useful! Continue reading

Allow me to introduce you to HairPrint, the only 100% hypoallergenic, non-toxic, odor-free hair color in the world proven not only to restore hair to its natural color... it also improves hair structure! Bye-bye harmful chemicals that eventually cause irreparable damage to the hair shaft, follicles and scalp-- Not to mention to our bodies as a whole, since the particles of standard toxic hair dyes are small enough to enter the bloodstream (the reason we can't color hair during pregnancy). The melanin pigment in Hairprint is already present in millions of our skin cells and due to its relatively large size does not pass into the bloodstream... Continue reading

These two darling Irish siblings completely captured my heart. Glowing with such absolute beauty, joy and love... I've truly fallen in love with them. (Please forgive the glare as the paint is still wet!) I approached this oil painting, "Ireland Babes" (18 x 14 oil on panel), in an entirely new fashion. All the plein air painting I've done has made me a much better, more spontaneous and fast painter. The reason being in just one hour outside painting, the entire scene will have totally changed due to the swiftly moving light and, therefore, one must respond to the scene just as quickly or it won't get captured. What this means is there is no time for any conversation in the head... only time to let life flow through and work its magic on the canvas. So this is... Continue reading

Thank you so much Tracy! I'm so happy you found StyleNectar as well :) As far as how this recipe and the Raw Vegan Chocolate Bark fit into PFC, I'd suggest the following: The Raw Vegan Chia Pudding can be eaten as breakfast, lunch or snack... The Raw Vegan Chocolate Bark is great as a small snack any time of day - perhaps 1/2 hour before or after a meal as a little treat or pick-me-up. As always, listen to your own body because we're all different and what works for one may not be best for another. I generally find as long as I'm not overdoing the quantities of anything, there is a lot more leeway in terms of how strict I am with food combining rules, for example. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions on anything. I look forward to seeing you back at StyleNectar soon! Have a beautiful day :) Much love, Juliane

Today I thought I'd share one of my favorite books, The Baghavad Gita. Specifically, the version translated by Eknath Easwaran (1910-1999), who is respected around the world as one of the greatest spiritual teachers. The Bhagavad Gita is believed to have been written between the 5th and 2nd centuries BCE, and, like similar great classics such as Continue reading

Thank you for your comment and question, JPAllen. The article is by Dr. Joseph Mercola. He lists a variety of sources which I included in my clip. Have a beautiful day! Juliane
Hi Lili, Thank you for your questions. On meat, I am now a vegan, however I understand that many people still incorporate it into their lifestyles. I'm going to attach a couple of links to excellent articles on the effects of meat on the body as well as the effects of various cooking techniques. Additionally, I will offer, boiling, steaming and baking in parchment atop a bed of veggies are all options which don't include oil. The very cooking of oil actually turns the oils rancid, so even if it were a good combo, one would be eating rancid oil which in itself is an issue. Here a couple of links to articles by Dr. Gregor: , & Yes, drinking water 30 minutes after a meal is fine. It's even ok to sip on hot tea during your meal. Experiment with what you find works best for your body... and make your own rules. Sending you much love and wishes for a beautiful day! Juliane
Thank you, Alexander. Have a beautiful day :)
I spent last weekend on the Eastern Shore oil painting en plein air. It was a windy, cold weekend, and though I don't typically think of myself as a terribly hardy person, I think I grew a bit more resilient. What's neat about painting is while I'm doing it I don't notice anything else, including whether or not I'm cold. It all comes down to the fact that our attention can only be on one...
