They Ate. They Prayed. They Found Inner Peace.

Taking a cue from Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love, Your Daily Thread helped to host a one-day retreat where inner peace seekers embarked on a journey of self-discovery and relaxation through yoga, meditation, an Ayurvedic consultation and hypnosis.

The retreat took place at RakSa, an eco-friendly wellness center in Culver City, which was created to educate others on how to live a more peaceful and healthy lifestyle through different mind and body therapies.

The day began with attendees moving seamlessly from Uttanasana (standing forward bend) to Adho Mukha Svanasana (downward facing dog) during a yoga and meditation session. With minds at ease and bodies calm, they then learned about Ayurveda, a holistic practice that aims to create balance in the body, spirit and mind. This is done by identifying one’s Dosha, and creating an appropriate diet, exercise and meditative lifestyle, based on energy levels, digestion, sleep patterns and pulse.

Having worked up an appetite, hungry participants enjoyed fresh bites from the RakSa café including grilled salmon, roasted seasonal root vegetables and kale with white beans. Some cooled off with refreshing organic iced tea while others opted for coconut juice, straight from a cracked coconut.

With their stomachs full, and otherwise relaxed, everyone returned to the Sala space for a hypnosis through love session. Some drifted off to sleep in deep relaxation, others allowed themselves to connect with their subconscious as the hypnotist guided them through the session.

As the day began to wind down, retreat-goers gathered their shoes and bags, said Namaste to Apinya Pokachaiyapat, the owner of Raksa, and made their way over to the theater for a showing of Eat Pray Love – a must see for any enlightenment seeker.

Relay For Life of San Fernando Valley Goes "Green For A Cure"

Join me in the fight against cancer by participating in Relay For Life of San Fernando Valley’s (SFV) 24-hour walkathon, taking place this Saturday, June 5 at 9:00 a.m. to Sunday, June 6 at 9:00 a.m. The event is held annually to celebrate those who have won their battle against cancer, to remember those who lost their lives to it, and to fight back against the disease by helping to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.

Participants form teams of 10-25 people and camp out at local high schools, parks, etc. and take turns walking or running around the track or path. “Because cancer never sleeps” at least one team member is asked to be on the track at all times during the event.

Going even one step further, Relay for Life of SFV has pledged to do their part and help our environment by going “Green for a Cure.” To lessen waste at the event, they will be selling re-usable water bottles with refills provided by Kangen Water. Eco-friendly goodies have been provided by different eco-conscious companies, such as Studio Alexandria LA and Your Daily Thread. Volunteers and participants are greatly encouraged to recycle any paper or plastic items, as well .

To join a team, or to register as an individual, sign up online or head over to the registration booth to sign up at the event. For more information visit their official website or check out their blog, Relay For Life of San Fernando Valley.

More like Real Freakin’ Delicious!

I may be a bit late to jump on the Real Food Daily (RFD) band-wagon, but with dishes as tasty as theirs, I say better late than never.
As the name implies, this place is nothing but “Real.” The restaurant was real contemporary and casual, real eco-friendly and chock full of patrons real hungry and ready to eat. The food, of course, was real good, organic and 100-percent vegan.
My dining partner, Laurie, and I scoured the menu for what to order. We were both famished, and were a bit overwhelmed by the number of food items we saw – everything looked delicious.
Laurie decided to go for the "Fettuccini Alfredo," but had a last minute change in appetite and went for "My Hands Are Thai" instead. This wound up to be a fantastic choice – with a little mooching from me, there wasn’t a bite left over. I, on the other hand, felt that it was only appropriate that I go with the "Real Food Meal" – you know the saying: when in Rome – er, I mean Santa Monica.
I was absolutely delighted by the meal. Brown rice, beans, chard, kale, land and sea vegetables, all topped with a dressing or sauce of your choice (I recommend going with the citrus dressing – it complimented the natural flavor of the foods perfectly). It was beyond filling (I even had enough left over for lunch the next day) and I felt invigorated by all of the healthy goodness I had just devoured.
The next time you find yourself on the West Side I highly recommend stopping by this vegan joint. The majority of the food is “grown exclusively with organic farming methods,” purchased locally, and any kitchen scraps, etc. are composted when possible. If your experience is anything like ours was, I can say without a doubt, that you will be real(ly) satisfied with what you get.

Chuck that chicken. Forget the fish. And say buh-bye to beef. Go Meatless in May!

Following their recent re-launch of the re-designed website, Your Daily Thread is kicking off the month of May with their Meatless in May campaign.

Meant to bring awareness to the impact our consumption of meat has on our carbon footprints and the environment at large, Meatless in May challenges subscribers to do just what the title implies – to go an entire month without eating meat.

To help fellow burger lovin’, filet grubbin’ meat eaters transition into the realm of meatless dining, Your Daily Thread will be providing motivational tips to those who have made this pledge. In addition, subscribers will be privy to alternative meal options, such as vegan and vegetarian recipes, and will be pointed to restaurants throughout the city that provide meatless menu items.

Make the pledge to go meat free in May by becoming a fan of YDT’s Meatless in May Facebook Page.

Mad for Macaroons!

While I am not a huge fan of shredded coconut, I absolutely adore macaroons. There is just something about the crumbly, yet sticky texture, and that “not made from butter,” buttery taste. Ever since I was a little girl, I can remember going gaga over the mouth-watering macaroons my mom would bring home from Gelsons Bakery (sigh).

Alas, here I am, twenty-something years later, pining over the same cookies that have always – and will always – make my tummy grumble with joy.

To make your very own Coconut Macaroons, check out this week’s Featured Recipe from Elana’s Pantry:


6 egg whites
¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
½ cup agave nectar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups shredded coconut

Cooking Instructions:

1) In a mixing bowl, whisk egg whites and salt until stiff.
2) Fold in agave, vanilla and coconut.
3) Drop batter onto a parchment lined baking sheet, one rounded tablespoonful at a time.
4) Pinch each macaroon at the top (like a kiss).
5) Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until lightly browned
6) Serve & enjoy!

For Me? You Shouldn't Have!

Not sure what to get that special friend (boyfriend, girlfriend, crush, make out buddy, etc.) of yours for Valentine’s Day? Here are several gifts that are super simple, thoughtful and will have your friend sending tons of XOXOs your way. What’s more, they’re all made with items you most likely already have lying around the house!

Remind your sweetie how much you adore them with these simple reminder note pads:

- 6 Pieces of used computer paper
- Some ribbon – check your gift wrapping cabinet for any ribbons you saved from the Holidays
- Hole puncher
- Pencil
- Ruler

Cut your computer paper in half. Make one stack of the 12 pieces of paper. Using your pencil draw two dots about ¼” down from the top of the page and 1” apart in the center of the first page. Using your hole puncher, punch a hole at each point that you marked. Cut a piece of ribbon about 5-6” long. Pull both ribbon ends through the holes in the paper and tie a bow.

Roses are red. Violets are blue…

- 1 Empty wine bottle
- Several freshly picked flowers or flowers from a local florist (you can choose to use as many or few flowers as you like)

Fill wine bottle about ¼ of the way full with water. Cut flower stems to desired height. Place flowers in wine bottle.

Josh Rosebrook: Purifying and Beautifying the World One Exfoliator at a Time...

Josh Rosebrook, hair stylist turned skin care guru, is set to debut his organic skin care line, appropriately named Josh Rosebrook, in March 2010. His skin care line represents a lifestyle that includes a healthy diet, meditation and yoga - “living in alignment,” per its creator. “You reflect your health in your skin, body and spirit.”

The line is made with “certified organic, organic or wild-crafted ingredients,” all of the packaging is recyclable and products have about a 14 month shelf life. In addition, all products are “chemical free" because, according to Rosebrook, chemicals are not anti-aging and the body cannot process synthetic materials in the same way it does natural products. “Society as a whole needs to get off chemicals,” he argued, as consumers “…don’t know what they’re getting…and that what they are getting is not ok.”

“We use processes that do not kill any "actives" in our products…” Rosebrook said. Rather, his skin care products undergo “cold processing” which means that products are processed below 102 degrees Fahrenheit. In doing so, nutrients are protected from being damaged by heat, thus remaining “active.”

Rosebrook believes that people are deceived when it comes to both the organic and conventional market. He disagrees with the way that companies try to sell the idea that you can get everything you need from one product: “It’s not all in one jar, ever, and I’m not going to try and sell that…this is beyond the miracle ingredient approach.”

Rosebrook plans to launch his line with his Enzyme Exfoliator. “It’s hard to find an exfoliator with the right amount of granules,” he said. The exfoliator is made up of walnut shells, herbal extracts, plant enzymes, and essential oils, among other organic materials. According to Rosebrook, the exfoliator will help to open pores, and stimulate blood circulation, as well as collagen production.

Next to debut, a Nourishing Anti Aging facial Oil and a Cacao and Co Enzyme Q10 MASK. Rosebrook is currently working on an organic and chemical-free hair care line as well.

Rosebrook graduated from cosmetology school in Portland, Oregon and currently works as a hair stylist at the The Parlour on 3rd in Los Angeles, where you will be able to purchase the Josh Rosebrook skin care line.

Cooking up a Winter's Storm

Puree that broccoli; bake that butternut quash; and savor those beets! Now that you know how important it is to buy produce that is in season (see Seasons Come...and Produce Grows), make the most of all those juicy fruits and veggies while you still can!

Roasted Broccoli Soup*
Created by Kimberly Garr of C'est La Vegan
Submitted by Carol Robinson, of GoodSkin LA

2 large heads broccoli (about 2 pounds)
2 large cloves garlic
2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper
4-5 cups vegetable broth
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
A few cracks lemon pepper, or fresh grated lemon zest

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

Cut the broccoli florets from the stems (you don’t have to cut them small), and place them on baking sheet. Slice the stems thinly and place them on a separate baking sheet. Peel and slice the garlic, and sprinkle it in with the florets. Drizzle the olive oil over both trays (use more than 2-3 Tbsp if you need to), and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss the florets and stems in the oil and put them in the oven to roast until they’re browned. (The stems take about 15 – 20 minutes, and the florets take at least ten minutes more. Turn both halfway through the cooking time, and take them out once they’re good and browned.)

Put the florets and stems in a pot with 4 cups of veggie broth and the thyme, and heat until the broth comes to a boil. If the broth doesn’t almost cover the broccoli, you might want to add the extra cup at this point, or you can wait to add it after blending if you want a thinner soup.

Once the broth has come to a boil, transfer the whole thing to a blender and puree. (You might have to do this in batches. And remember to be careful when blending hot liquids!) Return the soup to the pot.

You can add more broth at this point if you want it thinner, or simmer for a bit if you’d like it a bit thicker. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper if you need to. I had some lemon pepper which was a nice addition. You could also add a bit of lemon zest to taste to brighten up the flavor.

Servings: 4 small or 2 large

Steamed Chard

Chard is a great alternative to baby spinach. You can use it in a mixed green salad, or steam it and prepare as a side dish.

1 Bundle of Chard
1/4 Lemon
Sea Salt
Ground Pepper

First, cut the leaves off the stem (you can eat the stems, however they take longer to steam than the leaves). Steam until leaves are damp and soft. Put the chard on a plate, squeeze some lemon over it (be careful, though; chard already has a bit of a tangy taste so you don’t want to put too much on). Add a pinch of sea salt & pepper and you have yourself one easy healthy side dish!


Submitted by Laurie Roderick

10 shoots of Asparagus
1/2 Head of Broccoli
1/2 Package of Tofu (Firm)
1/2 lb. Green Peas (shelled or unshelled)
1/2 lb. White Mushrooms
3 Cloves Garlic (Minced)
Green Onion (for garnish)
3-5 tbsp. Coconut Milk
2 tsp. Garam Masala or Yellow, Red, or Green Curry
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Cut off stems of asparagus shoots. Chop the asparagus 2-3 times into 1-inch pieces. To prepare the broccoli, cut the stem from the head. Chop the stem up into about ½” disks, and then separate the head into mouth-sized pieces. Next, chop the mushrooms into 1/4” slices. For the tofu, cut into 1/2” slices, and place the slices on a paper towel to drain some of the water. Cut the green onions into small slices for garnish

Take a large (preferably Teflon) sautĂ© pan and fill with ½-1” of water. When the water starts to boil, throw the asparagus pieces, broccoli, and peas into the water. Boil for about 5 minutes or until the vegetables begin to soften. Timing will depend on how soft or crunchy you like your vegetables in a stir-fry. When they get softer but still retain some integrity, take them out and let them sit. Drain the water and wipe the pan of water.

Next, place some olive oil in the pan. 1-2 tablespoons usually suffice. When the oil is hot, place the tofu in the pan, and allow to cook until browned on both sides (usually 5 min per side). When the tofu is done, take it out and cut into squares.

Heat some more oil in the pan. When this is hot, throw in the sliced mushrooms, stirring frequently for about a minute or two. Then throw the broccoli, peas, asparagus, and tofu back into the pan. Stir in the garlic once vegetables have slightly browned. Towards the end of the cooking process, pour in the coconut milk and season to taste with the masala or curry spices. When the milk has coated the veggies and is warmed through, it is ready to be served. Garnish with the sliced green onions.

Baked Butternut Squash*

Olive Oil
Cinnamon (Optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut squash lengthwise down the middle. Scoop out seeds and other “gook.” Lightly coat cut side with olive oil. Add a dash of salt, pepper and cinnamon (if you dare). Fill a baking pan with about an inch of water and place cut side up in oven. Check back in an hour. The squash should be slightly browned and “tender” (if you are able to easily stick a fork into the meat of the squash it should be done).

Two ways to serve the squash: mashed (think “squashed potatoes”) or cut into quarters in the shell.

And, because no meal is complete without dessert...

Beet Cake

Cream Cheese

Cake Ingredients:
1 pound beets (about 2 medium)
Cooking spray
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk

Frosting Ingredients:
2 teaspoons grated orange rind
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (8-ounce) block 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, chilled
3 cups sifted powdered sugar
2 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts, toasted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

To prepare cake, peel beets using a vegetable peeler. Grate beets, using the large holes of a grater, to measure 2 cups.

Coat 2 (9-inch) round cake pans with cooking spray; line bottoms with wax paper. Coat wax paper with cooking spray.

Combine the granulated sugar, brown sugar, oil, and eggs in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well-blended. Add beets; beat well. Lightly spoon the flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (flour through salt) in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Pour batter into prepared pans; sharply tap pans once on counter to remove air bubbles.

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes on wire racks; remove from pans. Carefully peel off wax paper, and cool cake completely on wire racks.

To prepare frosting, beat orange rind, vanilla, and cream cheese with a mixer at high speed until fluffy. Add the powdered sugar; beat at low speed just until blended (do not overbeat).

Place 1 cake layer on a plate; spread with 1/2 cup frosting; top with remaining cake layer. Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake. Sprinkle nuts over top of cake. Store cake loosely covered in refrigerator.

Servings: 18 (serving size: 1 piece)

Seasons Come...and Produce Grows

As Project Runway’s Heidi Klum would say, “…one day you’re in and the next day you’re out.”While Klum refers to fashion, the same holds true for what you put on your plate. By now you’re probably well aware of the importance and benefits of buying local and organic produce: it is free from Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), hormones, and antibiotics; promotes ecological diversity; supports your local farmers (as opposed to giving money to some large-scale corporation); puts money back into your community; and has less of an impact on the environment (less gas used in the transportation of the produce). It is also important, however, to buy what’s in season.

Green in L.A. stopped by The Wednesday, Santa Monica Farmers’ Market to find out why it is so important to buy seasonal produce and what’s “in” now. Check it out:
