What do you mean painless PMS & Menopause?! There's no such thing!
Let me tell you a little story. 
I used to get really bad menstrual cramps. I mean really, really bad, like to the point where I couldn't do anything unless I was on pain medication. Needless to say this was very disturbing and disruptive. Then one day, about 10 years ago, I decided to do a little experiment. I had recently read Eckhart Tolle's book "The Power of Now" and it totally changed the way I perceived my reality. I thought I'd apply the concept presented in his book to the way I experienced the pain of my menstrual cycle. I scheduled off the entire day and decided to just be present with the pain. Instead of fearing it, dreading it, and trying to fight it, I thought I'd play with fully experiencing it. So I did - and the cramps disappeared. I know, it's amazing. It still is amazing. I have never had to medicate myself for cramps ever since that day. 
This is just one example of how empowering it can be when women listen to their bodies and learn to work with their bodies instead of loathing, fearing and suffering because of them.
If you too suffer from menstrual irregularities, PMS, breast tenderness, uncomfortable pre-menopausal symptoms, or infertility, then The Hormonal Bliss Project is for you, and it's launching on October 21st!

This course explores the four main phases of a woman's life that are related to and defined by the expression of her fertility and sexuality. We explore how what happens during and around these transitions sets the theme for a woman's experience of her self in her new roles throughout her life.
You will discover how a healthy menstrual cycle can help set the stage for a blissful menopause!
We explore the keys to Hormonal Balance through Diet and Nutrition, Exercise, Yoga, Natural Living and Emotional Wellness.
I am very excited to share a healthy and holistic perspective on women's reproductive health. Despite what you may have been told, your reproductive system is designed to function optimally without causing you a lot of pain and distress. Our modern lifestyle is the source of unhealthy dietary habits, disease, and incredible amounts of stress which are reflected in our bodies and emotions. In this course I share effective and natural tools and strategies you need to live a healthy and balanced life, no matter what time of the month or season of your life.

A little road trip to the Annapolis valley happily resulted in the acquisition of a half bushel of peaches. I have to be honest, I've never had this many peaches to work with before so everything I made with them were delicious experiments.

Delicious Experiment #1: Peach Cherry Apple Fruit Leather
     This one doesn't really need a recipe, I simply put a bunch of peeled and cut peaches in the VitaMix with some frozen cherries and a couple of chopped apples and pureed. Poured the puree onto dehydrator trays and dried them over night. Cut and store rolled in a sealed container.

Delicious Experiment #2: Peach Jam
     Ok so this one was a bit of a flop because it turned out way too runny. The addition of a couple of chopped apples would have provided enough pectin to make this one awesome.

Delicious Experiment #3: Peach Crisp
     A total winner.


5 cups sliced, peeled peaches
3 Tbsp organic corn starch
1/4 cup maple syrup

Crumble Topping:
2 1/4 cups rolled organic oats
3/4 cup organic flour (I used sprouted spelt)
3/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup organic sugar (brown or coconut)
3/4 cup organic butter

Method: Preheat oven to 350*F. Combine the peaches with corn starch and maple syrup in a large bowl. Pour into a 9" X 13" baking dish. 
Using the same bowl you just did for the peaches, combine the oats, flour, salt, cinnamon and sugar. Cut the butter in a with a pastry cutter or your hands until every piece of oat is mixed with the butter. Sprinkle onto the peaches and bake in the oven for about 25 minutes.
