How often do you look into your backyard when in search for medicine or even a snack? It may sound strange at first, but once you have the knowledge and understanding of wild life, it becomes much more clear as to why we should incorporate it into our diets.
Today's guest blogger, Rachel McClain, shares with us what to look for, how to use them, and why you should use weeds to enhance your healthy holistic lifestyle. From dandelions to ferns, she breaks down the nutritional information and benefit for each natural ingredient.

Namaste! Fall has returned, which for me equals food made from pumpkins! Even though I'm a summer girl at heart, I really do love this time of year. Leaves begin to change, sweaters come out of storage (it's like having a new wardrobe!), time to eat soup and chili...plus a ton of pumpkin-y food.
Today's recipe is a combination of two of my favorites: pumpkin and curry! It's vegan friendly - found at Hell Yeah It's Vegan - and no soy products, which can be kind of nice since a lot of vegetarians and vegans get burned out it after a while. The meal is simple, fast and nutritious; not to mention the incredible smell floating through your home!
I have a feeling this will be a fall time favorite and repeat meal for me this season. I can't wait for you to try it as well!

Namaste yogis! I'm very excited to share this week's recipe with you - Avocado Pesto - from CleanEatingMag.com. Yes, last week's recipe also focused on avocado...but what can I say? I love me some avocados! Here is exactly why you should too:
"One cup of avocado has 23% of the recommended daily value of folate, a water-soluble B vitamin vital to cell regeneration. Avocados also have more of the carotenoid lutein than any other commonly consumed fruit. Lutein protects against macular degeneration and cataracts, so eating avocados helps to ensure that your peepers are in top shape." - Clean Eating

Namaste! Whenever people hear the word "taco" they automatically relate the food to being unhealthy. Tacos do not have to be unhealthy what so ever. You have control over what is going into your food when you make it at home. Today I am sharing with you a vegetarian friendly (as well as vegan friendly) recipe for tasty and healthy tacos! If you love avocados like I do then you will have no difficulty eating these up!

Namaste yogis! Today we are getting hot and healthy! But before we move into that, a quick reminder, only ONE WEEK AWAY until the Mala! Ahhh! So exciting! If you haven't already registered, click here.
Just about a day or so, I had a nice chat with someone who had made the full switch to veganism. She said she makes a lot of vegan pizzas which instantly sparked my curiosity and I went hunting for recipes. Spicy food is an all time favorite of mine, so it was not difficult at all for me to choose which recipe I wanted to try out. All I needed to see was the title, I knew this was for me.
One of the best things about this recipe is that it can go either vegetarian OR full on vegan - depending on which ingredients you choose to use. Another thing I like is the convience. The crust is made from pita bread; you can buy an entire premade pita "crust" which then majorly cuts down on prep time. I hope you guys like it as much as I do!
Namaste yogis! We haven't had a recipe on here for a while...to be honest I've gotten a bit lazy and have been eating a lot of repeats (if you don't already know from keeping up with my food journal). Today I'm feeling saucy, it's time for NEW FOOD! Perhaps something a bit saucy...like egg plant manicotti!
Before we get started I have to say, I'm a big fan of egg plant. HUGE FAN! So if anyone has any other eggplant recipes they would like to share with me, please leave me a comment at the bottom of this article so I can eat more eggplant! :)

Namaste yogis! If you didn't catch up on the last post about chakras, click here for the review. Today I share with you the healing benefits of food to re-open closed off lines of energy.
Chakras (Sanskrit for "wheels") are subtle centers in the energetic system of a living organism that take in and give out energy. Health is determined by the flow of energy from the 7 chakras into the metabolic network of the body. Blocked chakras, due to emotional, mental, and/or spiritual issues, can restrict energy flow and lead to illness.
Foods—especially foods that share colors with the chakras—carry vibrations that can activate or balance your chakras. Explore this gallery to find out which health conditions are associated with which chakra, and learn how to choose foods to bring your chakras into balance.
Namaste Yogis! I have been known to have a serious sweet tooth...which can sometimes get me into trouble. What I love about the recipe today is that is lower in sugar content, vegan friendly and DELICIOUS! I love, love, LOVE tapioca pudding! When I came across this recipe, I just had to share it with all of my readers.
