Potato packets are a favorite of ours. We’ve been making them together for years and we still make them today. If you haven’t tried them, we’d say it’s time. They are so easy to make, absolutely delicious and they can be cooked on the grill or...read more
We’ve been practicing a simple formula that can be used every second of the waking day and change life as we all know it. Literally, every moment we are given a choice to internally think and outwardly act positively or negatively. Because we’re surrounded...read more
After a full day of exploring Dallas, we jumped on the highway and headed out of the city. Once the skyscrapers disappeared into the background, we exited off to find internet and complete some design work. When we began to drive away, one of the hoses blew off the...read more
We got into a really great conversation with a guy who we crossed paths with in Colorado. He was very much about being positive and doing right by others, but he still had an issue with the way some people behave. We explained our view is that if someone is acting...read more
We’re always looking for more plant based energy foods to eat and drink in place of caffeinated beverages and over-stimulating energy drinks. Chia Seed Power Gel packs an incredible amount of natural energy, vitamins and nutrients and Chia Seeds can be used in...read more
Did you know there is an official member of the English government who is disclosing alien information to the world? Supposedly, he grew up with parents who were also connected to the government and since he was a child, he has been interacting with different alien...read more
One of our main concerns before heading out on our cross-country adventure was keeping our dog, Sunday, cool from hot temperatures. Our VW bus didn’t have air conditioning, so we had always just kept the windows down, which circulated natural air pretty nicely,...read more
According to Wikipedia and some recent articles we dove into, standard time as we know it was put in place by the U.S. and Canadian railways just back in 1883. Standard time was written into law in 1918. Before all of this occurred, local towns each followed their own...read more
We love hummus, but we never knew how easy it was to make! It’s so much fun taking whole ingredients, blending them together and as if by magic, transforming them into mouth-watering dishes! Our white bean hummus is a favorite of ours. Enjoy our recipe below!...read more
A scientific study was done on red deer, showing the incredible way in which they communicate and make decisions. Although there might be a dominate male within the group, they actually don’t look to him to make the calls, but instead vote as a team. When the...read more
We used to scream for ice cream all of the time. Now we scream for ice creamless! It’s homemade ice cream without cream and it is absolutely delicious! We have made it with all kinds of different fruits, but we really love the strawberry banana and kiwi banana...read more
The two of us were overwhelmed with excitement every single day that it took to get our VW bus geared for our cross-country adventure. We had no fear, just determination. The actual day we headed out however, it sank in rather quickly that we were taking a leap of...read more
One of the most rewarding changes we’ve made was becoming aware of our mindfulness. When life had us moving at a fast pace, we were working for the man and stress was high. It was easy to charge through life, not recognizing our behaviors and actions along the...read more
What are the odds that the two of us would be born in the same hospital in Texas, leave the state around the same time and meet in Connecticut when we were 19 and 22 years of age? We’re not sure, but we find it pretty amazing that we both entered planet Earth at...read more
When we take a look at animals on Earth, we don’t see them eating breakfast, lunch and dinner. They just eat. They eat when they’re hungry, drink when they’re thirsty and sleep when they’re tired, as they please. Humans on the other hand, have...read more
Experts say when detoxing, fasting or juicing, it’s important to take in more veggies than fruits, to avoid spikes in blood sugar. This made us get creative with vegetables and we learned so much. For instance, we didn’t know you could juice a potato!...read more
A few years ago we learned about pH levels in the body. Dr. Otto Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize for his research on cancer and he put forth the idea that the root cause of cancer is acidity levels in the body. He and a famed physician, Max Gerson, explained that...read more
When the first chill of Fall hit, we were quick to cook up some hot soups! One of the easiest and most soothing soups we enjoy is our mushroom onion soup. It’s hearty, the thick red onion melts in our mouths and the mushroom gives it a rustic feel and taste....read more
Freedom, to us, is the state of being free to speak, eat, drink, learn, sleep, travel, express one’s self and experience. No other animal on the planet pays money for these things. The only real reason to have created a thing called money was to create the idea...read more
We never realized how important it was to wake up and start focusing on our chakras. Basically, our bodies have points of concentrated energy which, whether in balance or not in balance, effect everything from mood to physical and mental health. Just like a knot in...read more
An organism that has had its DNA genetically altered or modified is known as a GMO (genetically modified organism). For example, humans discovered that if they duplicate the browning gene in a potato, it will keep it from browning. Tomatoes have even been genetically...read more
Our favorite way to explain self help can be found in the back of most airplane seats. If you look, you’ll see the diagram stating “Place the oxygen mask on yourself first, before helping small children or others who may need your assistance”....read more
We had a good laugh when we came across info on oil pulling. We had been swishing coconut oil in our mouths once a day because we know it kills mouth bacteria and leaves our teeth feeling squeaky clean. It turns out swishing oil in the mouth (on an empty stomach) is...read more
It’s clear to most people that there are powers that be, managing the distribution of information, technology, electronics and artificial intelligence to the masses. If all of the technology or full potential of the technology known to man was released to the...read more
