Rachel (Suburban Yogini) and I have done a bloggy energy exchange! Go on over and check out my post on Yoga and Food... and my thoughts on eating sustainably, vegan and vegetarianism. Also, while you're there check out here awesome vegan chocolate cookie recipe (yum!).
Also, while I'm chatting about other blogs here are a few new (to me!) that I have found:
Bob Weisenberg, American Gypsy, Padre e Hijo (what does that mean Bob?): You may recognize Bob as the wonderful author of 'Yoga Demystified', but maybe you didn't quite realize that Bob has MAD SKILLZ with guitar playing. Seriously. I mean I would drool a bit just listening. Take a listen. I hope he blogs soon about the Yoga Flamenco connection!
Operation Beautiful: A wonderful and empowering site that offers healthy advice for eating and body image. This woman has spurred a Guerrilla Yoga-worthy movement of posting little 'love' post its anonymously, taking a photo and sending it to her site. Telling the readers that they are beautiful. I LOVE reading about the daily bits of spreading the self-worth and her site is FILLED with useful information about dieting, body image, eating disorders and self-esteem.
Mama-Om: I adore this woman's perspective of motherhood and life. She has such calm and insightful ways of viewing her role as a mother and parenthood. I'm not a mother yet, but I hope to take some of her wisdom with me into my journey (some day).
Eat The Damn Cake: I just discovered this space, with a mission to get women to talk about their issues around body image. LOVE. It's honest, open and perfect. It's about time we connect and support each other on this taboo topic of the scary disordered eating thoughts we have.
Yogic Dancer: A dancer and yogini, she recently completed a personal yoga challenge and her thoughts were interesting and motivational. Her recent posts for A Green Spell's The Coil (coming up btw!! check it out!) were honest and respectful.
One Green Generation: This space is a HUGE resource for all you would be gardeners out there. From seed saving to garden planning to Urban gardening, this site has it all. Not only that, but Melinda so often opens up the discussion BEYOND the easy 'plant this and that' to how to build a community, why being 'green' is difficult, cultural and social issues. I love reading her thoughts. Check out her latest 'Are we abnormal?' for a fantastic read on sustainability, culture and body image.
Life on the Balcony: alright, like Melinda's, not really a new space for me, but I've come back to it this spring season. This space is fantastic for tips on how to be an urban balcony gardener, from plants that go together, organizing a pretty flower pot to types of soil. Seriously, awesome resource.
Flandrum Hill: Amy-Lynn is a talented photographer and naturalist in Nova Scotia. Her pictures really capture why I love this province and she always has posts on things I would normally consider mundane... until she writes about them. She makes rural Nova Scotia the magical place it used to be while I was growing up.
Funemployment DIY: This is my friend Jen's space! She is a ridiculous crafter, baker and DIY-er eco-extraordinaire. Seriously, I wish I could make cool stuff like she does. In any case, during a month of unemployment, she has decided (in her wisdom) to have a FunEmployment Month of sustainably DIY-ness. From a cool coat-rack shelf dealy to a beautiful gift for her pregnant sister, I love reading about her adventures :)
Hope that was a fun blog-hop! :)
