ICE CREAMLESS RECIPES

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...

LEAP OF FAITH

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...

PRACTICING MINDFULNESS

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...

DALLAS TEXAS TRAVEL VIDEO

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...

BREAKFAST, LUNCH, DINNER, FALSE!

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...

V5 JUICE RECIPE

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!...

PH BALANCE + ALKALINE FOOD

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...

MUSHROOM ONION SOUP RECIPE

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....

FREEDOM vs MONEY

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 spell...

WE’RE CHOCK FULL OF CHAKRAS

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...

BIG BAD GMO (GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS)

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...

SELF HELP & HELPING OTHERS

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”....

OIL PULLING

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...

ELECTRONICS AND A.I.

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...

HEAR THIS

Studies have shown, millions of people are at risk of losing their hearing. Just like a bomb going off too closely to a person can make them go deaf, listening to loud music over a long period of time can too. To all those people driving around with their speakers...

CURE ALL

Max Gerson was a physician who dedicated his entire life to showing people the power of whole plant-based foods and dietary-based treatments that proved to cure cancer and disease. We learned that our bodies have alkaline-acidic levels, that when out of balance, cause...

NATCHEZ MISSISSIPPI TRAVEL VIDEO

When we headed out of the little port town of Beaufort, South Carolina, we didn’t do much planning for our cross-country adventure. We pointed our VW bus away from the coast and just let our hearts be our guides. When we got tired, we looked up nearby state...

THE MELON BREAKDOWN

At more than 90% liquid, melons will pass through the stomach quite quickly if eaten alone. Combining melons with other foods however, creates fermentation of the fast-decomposing melon, which can cause some gastric strain. Next time try eating melons and other fruits...

MANIPULATING MAN

Sigmund Freud was a father of psychology and psychoanalysis, most people know this. What a lot of people don’t know is, his nephew, Edward Bernays, used this information to create what we now know as public relations. He understood human emotion and how to...

PINTO BEAN VEGETABLE MEDLEY RECIPE

Every once an a while we make our own little side dish medleys, full of harmonizing ingredients. This recipe calls for beans, tomatoes, bell peppers, garlic, onion and spices. It’s delicious and a home run side-dish, if you ask us. Enjoy our Pinto Bean Vegetable...

STRAWBERRY ALMOND MILK + GRANOLA CEREAL RECIPE

Since we’ve said goodbye to most dairy products, we’ve learned about alternatives, like almond milk. When most people think of almond milk though, they may think of the kind seen at the grocery with added flavors, gums and preservatives. Our new favorite...

EXERCISING INDOORS VS EXERCISING OUTDOORS

When the two of us first met each other in 2005, we went to our local gym to workout together. We’d jump on the treadmill, lift weights and ride stationary bikes. The sound of electric machines, the smell of sweat and the amount of ego that filled the room was...

MEET SCOTIA OUR TRAVELING CAT

When the two of us headed out of South Carolina and began our cross-country adventure, we brought our dog, Sunday, along for the ride. She was so easy going, friendly to everyone and she loved having the whole back of our VW bus to herself. We camped in Alabama and...
