We’ve made quiche together since we met each other back in 2005, but these days we only eat things like butter or dairy products on treat days. Quiche is so worth the wait and leaves us filled and satisfied. The best part is, they are so easy to make. Enjoy our...read more
High-fructose corn syrup is a chemically processed sweetener that causes the body to store fat, rather than burn it, which leads to weight gain. It also causes diabetes, cellulite, tooth decay, kidney stones, acne, aging and a number of other issues. We read it even...read more
For our fifth wedding anniversary, we headed to North Carolina to take in some mountain air. We boarded the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad, enjoyed first class and took in some spectacular views, like the Nantahala Gorge. Although the water was noted as 32 degrees, we...read more
When we got to back to Beaufort, “Moksha”, our 1978 VW Bus, was running smoothly. Over time though, we began to notice some oil leaking from the middle of the undercarriage. We had plans to get to the Edisto River for our fourth wedding anniversary and...read more
We try to steer clear from traditional pasta, flour and calories that come with it. When we get a craving for spaghetti, which doesn’t happen very often, we pick up spaghetti squash. It’s a healthy pasta substitute, it’s naturally stringy and tastes...read more
The two of us remember reading The Berenstein Bears books when we were little. Each book focused on a specific life topic, like strangers, messy rooms, bullying and more. We were stunned when we came across the beloved childhood books, titled The Berenstain Bears,...read more
When it’s cold outside, our Mini Veggie Pot Pie recipe comes in handy. We normally try to avoid butter and all purpose flour, but we celebrate our hard work with weekly treat days where we can enjoy some comfort food. Veggie Pot Pie hits the spot, warms the soul...read more
We met a very interesting man who made us aware of an odd topic of conversation that is going on around the world. He said people have put together the photos of Earth that NASA has taken over the last few decades and each depiction looks very different. The...read more
Throughout time, great minds have changed the way we look at things. Humans used to think the world was flat and then they were taught the Earth revolves around the Sun. Physicist, Nassim Haramein has announced a new theory. He believes the Earth is actually being...read more
Treat days are a perfect excuse to enjoy homemade fries! They are so much better than any frozen fry from a restaurant or fast food joint. Sometimes we like to cut them thinly, other times, nice and chunky. We pair them with homemade ketchup and even like to go wild...read more
We’ve been enjoying the benefits of coconut oil for years. It’s a main ingredient we use in our homemade toothpaste and mouthwash. It cleans the mouth and makes our teeth shiny and smooth. We use virgin, unrefined coconut oil every once and a while in our...read more
For our fourth wedding anniversary, we canoed 13 miles down the Edisto river in South Carolina to stay in an off-grid tree house with no electricity or running water. The river trip was beautiful and it felt freeing to be completely engulfed in nature. The little...read more
Rather than buying tomatoes from the store, this season we picked up organic plants from our local farmers market and began our own tomato garden. A variety of young tomatoes found a home in our beds. As they matured, little green tomatoes began popping…read more
When most people think of meditation, they may think of Buddhist monks sitting in robes on a hill, far far away from this reality. But in truth, more and more people are waking up and realizing the power within. By sitting and focusing on breathing and bodily and...read more
It’s one thing to sick a dog on someone, but a dolphin? It’s true, they are considered one of the smartest animals on Earth and highly evolved, which is why it disturbs us they are being used in warfare. Supposedly, back in the sixties the Navy studied...read more
It’s absolutely amazing when the universe provides signs that tell us symbolically that we’re heading in the right direction. On our trip to Sarasota, Florida, we were tested the moment we arrived. The brakes on our VW bus went “spongy” all of...read more
When it comes to curries, this one hits the spot! The potatoes melt, the peas stand out and everything is alright in the world. It’s such a comforting dish and is one we enjoy often. It reminds us of when we worked in New York City. We’d meet for lunch at...read more
It’s absolutely amazing, how every night we leave our bodies in a state of paralysis and travel through an aether of mystery. Hours later, poof, we return in the morning to yet another day of earthly experience. It’s like being reborn each day. The...read more
We’re obsessed with macaroons. They’re so easy to make and absolutely delicious. We’ve made them before with banana, blueberries and even kiwi, we’ve dipped them in chocolate and we’ve even added crushed walnuts. The possibilities are...read more
When we first picked up our VW bus in Asheville, North Carolina, in November of 2013, we planned to keep driving to Virginia. The only problem was, the state of the back wheel was questionable. We trekked back home to South Carolina safely and had a mechanic friend...read more
We love edamame. It’s such an easy snack and we know a recipe that elevates the little beans. With a toss in olive oil, sprinkle of cheese and sesame seeds, they are transformed into a delicious treat. Enjoy our edemame with parmesan and seseame seed recipe...read more
We’re those “weirdos” you hear about that go to all costs to save any life, even a fly’s. Every living creature is someone having an experience. When it comes to unharmful bugs and animals, we never understood why people would go out of their...read more
Susie Lill introduced us to lemon bars and we’ve come up with our very own twist! Rather than using all purpose flour we use almond flour and instead of using butter, we use coconut oil. These treats definitely hit the spot and still give us the lemon bar flavor...read more
Before moving into our first house as a married couple, we discussed our many possible futures and the things we’d like to manifest in our life. We decided to hold the same picture in our minds, of a horse in our backyard and a VW bus to putt around in. Two...read more
