Although I do blab on a lot about food, I do have other interests which are just as essential to my quest to live a healthy life. It is certainly possible to feed your body and neglect your soul, but I wouldn't recommend it. The purpose of food is to power up an amazing life, not to be the only focus in life.
Two of my favourite things are nature and music. The pic below was taken last weekend on Quail Island.
Please join me now for a big "Ahhhhhhhhhhhh"
I spent a glorious day there, doing little more than lying in the sun, soaking in some greenery, listening to birds and water and (of course) munching on my pre-packed munchies.
Below are some necessary sounds to enliven the pic. The first is a funky tribal(ish) beat from Naxxos, and the second is my currently favourite version of the Gayatri Mantra. Either of these can banish a bad mood and turn a day from blah to shiny. I once heard a spiritual teacher say that the Gayatri Mantra drives away negative entities in your environment. Who couldn't use a bit of help with that these days?
Really, I operate on such a simple equation: nature+music+good food+great company = paradise. Enjoy!
