Fresh coconut is absolutely delicious! Some are intimidated by the work involved in opening one. That is why I created this short video showing you how to open a coconut.

Who doesn’t like Valentine’s day?
(and Valentine muffins!)
This particular day celebrating love and couples, has become the official Magnificent Love for All day to me.
Over the years, because Mike and I meditate, it seems that our love vibration has changed and elevated itself to a higher and more open perspective.
If you had to choose one food to learn more about, what would it be? Your answer should be squashes! (in my opinion)
