Jolted out of my slumber. Sitting straight up I look…
February is a month all about heart health—emotional (e.g. Valentine’s Day) as well as physical (Cardiovascular Disease Awareness Month), but what is often overlooked is how passion or love for something (as opposed to someone) unrealized can so deeply affect our heart organ, our overall health and can even affect our ability to love again.
My first true heart break came over ten years ago when the community center I had helped create and which I felt as though I had poured every last tear, drop of blood and sweat into was shut down by a city that was scared of the community coming together to empower themselves and learn how to be self-sufficient. That community center had given me the occasional glimpse for what a world without greed based on community health could look like. Though only a glimpse, it had lit my heart on fire and given me hope.
I’m a big proponent of Raw Foods Fusion. What? You may ask is that??? Raw foods fusion is like my philosophy of life and food or rather what my philosophy has or is becoming in life and in food… Everything in moderation and never get too extreme.
This is actually a fairly funny philosophy for me to have, because my life has largely been one of extremes–extremes in love, politics, food and fun.
