To try a Dominican style fruit salad, use this simple recipe
1= Get a papaya, pineapple, banana, watermelon, and mango and cut in into small pieces
2= Sprinkle with honey or agave nectar
And that´s it! Simple, and delicious. Very much a testament to the country itself.

Located in the cute, downtown area of Laguna Beach and a walk, skip, n' a jump from the shore, Zinc Cafe is a cute Vegetarian find, even for those who are carnivore eating...!
Unlike the usual almost "hippy dippy" atmosphere of many animal-free eateries, Zinc Cafe is chic, eclectic, and gourmet. They offer a vast array of deli goods (my fav!) that are purchased by the pound, coffee drinks, and even Peonies by the bunch! To top it off they sell grain free, gluten free cookies, could we ask for anything more?
My Nutritional Tips:
-Treat yourself to Dark Chocolate or Gluten Free treats
- Check out their selection of bottled tea for a low sugar beverage!
Give it a try and lemme know what you think.

Which brings me to the topic of Yoga. And how my practice has change and evolved since I experienced my first child's pose and down dog. Like most things, my Yoga practice is not what I assumed it would be as I quickly approach the age of thirty. I had forever assumed that I would embrace Power Yoga and a dynamic Vinyasa flow as my daily dose of strength building relaxation. Yet, in reality this could not be more far from the truth.
I will remember my first love affair with numerous warrior poses, chaturangas, and pretzel twists forever and ever, yet now I am totally content with a Restorative Yoga practice. I have tailored a twice daily ( if I'm lucky!) sequence to relieve my aches and pains, and maintaining my health and balance as I age . And as I write this, I can feel myself laughing inside. Like my dear Mother has always said: "the more you plan for the future, the less your future will follow according to plan." On that note, maybe I will get inspired to bust out a handstand and standing split as I approach sixty. That is the new fourty, right? :)
Happy Monday! Cheers to you and your own Yoga, whatever and wherever that may be.
