Meat eaters, Man eaters- how we're meant to be fed

"After all hunger in the body, simple. Now hunger in the mind, something other than the force that is life." Peaceful Warrior


As said gracefully by Irving Penn, photos are meant to have an impact.

After reading one of those graphic, bloody photograph induced magazines on how they slaughter animals for our meat, and being visually reminded with sliced snas's on the faces of furry, friendly animals that have mothers and brothers that lick your face until you coo in submission- I decided this week to embark on the return to being as close to purely plant based as possible. Although, I'll still need fish for the Omega's to heal my autoimmune.

I embraced the journey for over a decade, what seems like decades ago. (How old am I??)
Then, it was about living clean. Now, it's about being fair and taking only my share, as well as feeling strong, healthy, vital, eternal. Besides it's just grossing me out. Even certain fish, when you see them in life, swimming all gorgeously- it seems strange that anyone would hijack them out of the water to put on a plate. Until I feel starving- It makes more sense when you are hungry for nutrients to kill.

The advice of an adored has me feeling armed in my persistence to pull off living forever. The one who should likely be a life coach, as well as a supermodel, may have the answer to hunger and beauty. I'll take it. He sought these gems below, while searching for the way to save his life. The word of one facing off death, always trustworthy. He also happens to have a knack for finding "the best" of everything. (Vega One and Innerlight added to your diet seem to take the edge off- you feel whole again, nourished and plentiful.)

The etymology of both of the above recommendations, Chlorophyll. Plants have chlorophyll all but mushrooms and fungi types. It has the exact molecular structure as the hemoglobin molecule in human blood, except that the latter has an iron atom and the chlorophyll molecule has a magnesium atom.

Plants are our key source of nutrients on a cellular level. A key expert on our live blood cells agrees. "Dr Robert O Young is a microbiologist and nutritionist and founder of the company InnerLight Worldwide Inc. He is a pioneer of analyzing living blood cells and has spent years researching diseased and healthy cells under the microscope. He discovered that the essence of life is derived almost exclusively through plants, and that every cell in the body needs the light derived from green plants.
Especially important for the human body system is the green plant pigment chlorophyll."
Innerlight mass spectrometer tested greens to match our blood cells best

Give me some Kale! I keep it in the fridge readily available for those moments I meander to the fridge door, open it, look, touch, take and close. Sometimes just to put something in my mouth!

If I happen to see you with your cheeseburger or chicken fajita's, and I begin to look at your food in that ravenous way, forgetting yet again what it is you are holding, and why I don't want it, while I munch on almond butter, someone call Dr. Green, sure to cure my oral fixation. Every time.


If you order the Vega, do so here, it is the best rate,

**Paleo mom advises staying away from the algae types: chlorophyll, spirulina in order to heal autoimmune, because they are immune activators.

Yoga & Anatomy

"Sarah. Can you come get me? Hurry, please. It looks like the entire city is burning to the ground," (said, with the sound of what death might sound like.)

 If someone you love calls for help, you go. Right? Only that day I couldn't have fathomed what I was driving into.

I spent the rest of that day stuck on a side street, jammed between piles of cars, listening to Manhattan crumble around me, powerless if it weren't for my feet, which saved my life that day.

At 10:22 a.m., on September 11th every year, my mind & body are taken back to 12 years ago.
129th street, Harlem, NYC in a fourth floor walk up, on a sunny day smelling like freshly sharpened pencils on Manhattan's upper east side.

For the next week or two the only news I would write about would be up in smoke.

At this exact moment, but over a decade ago, I switched on the broadcast I wrote for, to begin calibrating the days material and learned that blocks away, there was a larger tragedy taking place than I'd ever lived through before. It was crashing into the most powerful city I've ever known, being viewed by my co-workers outside their window. The phone rang- a lot that day.

On the Brooklyn bridge, an adored man's life changed forever, as he watched a wide angle view of the explosions & collisions. He waited, convinced he was next. He wrote about that moment for the rest of his life.
A woman wandered the smoke & flying rubble calling out for her son, while another woman launched herself from a burning tower to escape the pain scorching her flesh.

It took days for anyone to realize how large this was.

Until that day New Yorkers felt invisible, effortlessly. From that day, it would take something more.

Wanderlust Festival Philadelphia 2013

An event that usually banks a womping $450., has come to Philadelphia for free. In a small park, just outside the central part of the city over 1000 people gathered to practice this ancient art form. Vendors such as Rumi, Haiku, Acro Yoga and hoola hoopers convened onto the location. The vibes were not overwhelming and those gracing their yoga mats to the concerete allowed me to wander through, barefoot and take their photos. See my Facebook page for tags on vendors and photos of instructors.

PW & I collide (Philadelphia Weekly) Serendipity at it's best

I love spontaneous moments.

One rainy afternoon, on Fulton St., in Queen Village, known as the heart of Philadelphia- one PJ wearing mom who happens to have a multitude of talents and passions while wandering with the Ebner's & twins, saw a moment, took it and that moment ended up on the cover of PW (with a slightly hairier version of a photographer- who is brilliant.) See below.
