  • March Against Monsanto, Chicago 5.24.14

    I wish I was able to see an aerial view of all of the people Marching Against Monsanto around the world on Saturday. We may not have gotten much (or any?) mainstream press, but I do believe our efforts made an impact. I’m happy I was able to attend + photograph the march in Chicago. […]

  • 10 GMO ingredients that may be in your body care products

    Sneaky gmos.. Not only are they in our non-organic food & cotton clothes, but they’ve gone and snuck into our body care products, too. Last year I did a post on how to avoid them in your food (check it out here: http://thelotusroot.com/how-to-easily-avoid-gmos/) Also as promised, this is part 1 in my series on how to […]

  • On guilty pleasures, and a world without GMOs

    Full Disclosure: As I write this, I am dreaming of eating an avocado tostada with a side of guacamole and chips. The tostadas that I love are most likely made with gmo corn + cooked w/ gmo canola oil with a little bit of gmo soy in there somewhere for good measure. I’m telling you […]

  • Finding safe skin care products (that actually work!)

    Tell me if this sounds like you… You get frustrated when looking for safe skin care / beauty / personal care products. You get tired of reading endless lists of ingredients… You find it hard to figure out what works (without a lot of expensive trial and error). You wonder which natural ingredients are effective, […]

  • Sketchbook Sundays: Cotton

    It’s a beautiful plant, but according to the Organic Trade Association: “Cotton is considered the world’s ‘dirtiest’ crop due to its heavy use of insecticides, the most hazardous pesticide to human and animal health.” “It can take almost a 1/3 pound of synthetic fertilizers to grow one pound of raw cotton in the US, and […]

  • flowing into fall

    As I mentioned last week, the designs I’ve been working on are finally finished. The first is my flowing chakras design, which I originally drew a while back for an album of Meditation music: Root to Crown. The second is a pattern I created for my eye pillows with the third eye / 6th chakra / anja […]

  • Making hibiscus tea

    I just wanted to take a moment to share one of my favorite drinks to help keep cool in the summertime – iced hibiscus tea. Growing up, I loved drinking Red Zinger tea, which has hibiscus in it ( I was that weird kid who stopped drinking pop when I was 12). Hibiscus is known […]

  • How to easily avoid GMOs

    I think it’s fantastic news that the Connecticut state Senate passed a bill that will require the labeling of GMOs. Unfortunately, other U.S states aren’t on board (yet). While labeling GMO food would be great to raise awareness and help people make better choices, I feel that we can take our power back right now […]
