Reblog if you think exercise is for everyone.


The Center of Restorative Exercise (C.O.R.E.) team will be participating in what might be one of the most amazing races ever, to raise funds for something that is near and dear to our hearts. On May 4th we will be running simultaneously with runners all around the globe in a race that has no traditional finish line and no set time to beat, all to raise funds for spinal cord research. If you live in California, Colorado, Florida, or one of the other global locations, join us in our race to be the global champion and the champion of an amazing cause. 100% of the entrance fee’s go to spinal cord research.

We run for those who can’t, so that someday they might!

Most Depressing Toy Ever


for a lot of children, i’m sure this toy supports self-image and self-esteem. TELL ME WHY THAT’S DEPRESSING

That’s a fucking awesome toy!!

Such a pretty wheelchair for a doll!!!

Having studied diversity in early childhood settings introduction of accessibility based toys makes it far more likely that we will have a more accessible world for our children and our children’s children. It isn’t depressing it’s fricking necessary.

Oh depressing is it?

What about the children that are disabled, who will mostly have to play with dolls that are ‘normal’.

For a young child to have a doll like this, it will give them a confidence boost.

Do you know what’s depressing, people like you, who can’t accept that maybe disabled kids want to play with a toy that reminds them of themselves.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
my sister began the cambrige diet today n is eating 500 a day. I told her it isn't enought but she said it is because she gets all her nutrients through the special diet food and drinks. Is this true? also my friend began 5:2 today. Are these diets safe and are they effective? I want to lose weight with them :/ x

This whole ‘I get enough nutrient’ is the biggest bullshit I’ve been hearing recently. I’ve seen a lot of Fitblrs doing it too.

No. Just no.

• a calorie is a calorie and you need to eat enough calories
• nobody can fucking get all the proper nutrients through so little food unless they’re consuming adequate calories
• diets are shit. Don’t do something you can’t keep doing the next ten years
• 1200 isn’t enough for an 8 year old. 1500 isn’t enough for a moving grown person. Let alone while exercising.
• which would make anything less than that pure starvation

Just eat healthy and exercise.


Thank you for this post, the insanity of these restrictive diets is getting too damn high!

God bless their mindsets that they get better because I love food too much to want to die…


Vanilla Coconut Cream “Cheesecake” (dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan)

Hello dear readers! I have a special treat for you today.literally! A dairy-free, grain-free “cheesecake” made from my Soured Coconut Cream recipe. This no-bake recipe is so simple to make and will delight your friends and family. I’ve tested it many different ways to get the perfect ratio of ingredients, in fact maybe too much, because now I want nothing to do with coconut milk!

Homemade Dairy-Free Sour Cream (nut-free, soy-free, vegan)

Do you ever crave that rich, creamy taste of sour cream but are sensitive to dairy products? I created a very simple replacement for sour cream that can be dolloped over baked potatoes or yams, spooned over beans and rice, added to tacos, used to make a layered taco salad, or used to make no-bake “cheesecakes”!! Seriously, where can’t you add a spoonful of this rich dairy-free sour cream?

Cucumber Kale Cleanser (aka “Green Juice”) Recipe

Happy New Year! Cheers! This is our favorite green juice recipe, in fact, our children think it’s the bomb! They love it. Serve it in a pretty glass with a stainless steel or glass straw. I think you’ll find that this green juice is very mild tasting and quite enjoyable to drink. This recipe is part of our new Elimination Diet Program and Book! We’ve been receiving so many emails asking about the Elimination Diet and where to find it. Our Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook (where the old program was) is out of print now. We spent our summer completely updating the book with 100 new recipes and plenty of new up-to-date science! It will be available this spring, published through Grand Central Life & Style. We also removed the elimination diet from the book because it deserved its ownbook. We have a brand-spanking new elimination diet program coming for you soon online. We can’t wait to share this powerful healing tool with you, complete with new recipes, menu plans, and more!

The NEW Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook

The brand new, completely revised edition of The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook is available for preorder now! I’m so excited to share beautiful photos from our new book and answer the many questions we’ve been receiving about it. If you’ve been following us on Facebook, Tumblr, and Instagram you’ve likely seen updates about the new book. Our publisher, Grand Central Life & Style, did a beautiful job with the layout and design. 

This book is the guidebook for learning how to stock and prepare whole foods…and how to be the healthiest YOU! 

We will guide you through the process of stocking whole foods, from the healthiest meats and seafood to the best types of fats and oils…and even the healthiest forms of chocolate! You’ll learn tips for switching your diet to a healthy unprocessed one, as well as detailed information on the benefits of each whole food group {Greens, Vegetables, Fruits, Whole Grains, Legumes, Nuts and Seeds, Meats & Seafood, Dairy Foods, Sea Vegetables, and Fats}. 

There are over 450 pages of recipes and information!

The NEW chapters to this edition of The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook include The Whole Diet Story, Digestive Health, The Whole Toxicity Story, Smoothies, and Get Cultured! 

With all of the confusion people have over what to eat today we broke down each popular diet from Raw Vegan to Paleo and talked about the benefits and drawbacks of each, all backed up with solid science. 

Excerpt from the book: "Everyone’s body is different. Digestion and immune functions can be compromised by what we eat and how we live. Food sensitivities—to gluten, dairy, corn, and soy—are a reality for many. As a result, some people thrive on one diet while others don’t. Your goal should not be to try the hot new lifestyle trend, but to find a way of eating that is best for you."

Pictured above are a few recipes from the Get Cultured! chapter where you will learn to make all sorts of cultured and fermented recipes, including dairy-free yogurt, coconut water kefir, and kombucha. 

The Salad and Vegetable Chapter is packed full of simple recipes to nourish your body and your soul.This book provides plenty of recipes and ideas for preparing healthy & sustainable forms of meat, poultry, and seafood. You’ll learn how to prepare whole grains, plus many delicious recipes that use them. And, well, a cookbook wouldn’t be complete without a chapter on desserts! This book only uses healthy, whole, unprocessed ingredients to create luscious dessert and simple treat recipes!


How many new recipes does this edition contain?

Over 100! With a total of over 300 recipes!

What’s different about this edition?
We’ve added 4 whole new chapters like I mentioned above (The Whole Diet Story, Digestive Health, The Whole Toxicity Story, Smoothies, and Get Cultured!), plus revised information in the other chapters to make sure all of the science was completely up-to-date.

How similar is this book to your Nourishing Meals cookbook?
They are two completely different books. Each has its own recipes, there are no crossovers. Both books are gluten-free and offer healthy whole foods recipes, but that’s as similar as it gets. You’ll probably want to have both books if you enjoy my recipes. 

Will this book be available on Kindle?
Yes, you can go to to preorder it now.

Will this edition have photos?
Yes, this blog post contains some of the photos that are in the book. There is not a photo for every recipe though….there are over 300 recipes, so 300 photos just wasn’t feasible. 

Where can I buy it?
It will be available at all major book retailers, including, Barnes and Noble, and Powell’s Books. You will also be able to find it at independent retailers. If you preorder now through you will be guaranteed the lowest preorder price! So If you ordered it when it was $20 but at some point the price drops to $13 during the time before the release date, you will be charged $13 when it ships. Fun huh! Go to our book’s page on Amazon to check out the preorder price. Last time I checked it was 42% off the list price! 

When does the book come out? 
The release date is scheduled for April 29th, 2014.

Is the book Gluten-Free?
Yes, the entire book is gluten-free with many grain-free recipes. The book includes optional dairy in a few recipes. There are also a few recipes with eggs and soy (tempeh, miso, and tofu).

Do the recipes contain xanthan or guar gums?
No, all of the recipes are free of gums. Instead I have used chia seeds or just created the recipes to not need any binders. 

I’m Vegan, are there enough recipes to suit my needs?
Yes, we focus on eating a plant-rich diet with the addition of healthy & sustainable sources of meat, poultry, and seafood. There are many vegan recipes in this book including recipes for main dishes, breakfasts, baked goods, and desserts.

Peach Ginger Mint Green Smoothie

This fresh, summery smoothie will quench your thirst and rejuvenate your cells! My ingredients veer a little from the smoothie ingredients we typically use. This one makes use of all of the produce (except ginger) you can find at your your local Farmer’s Market or food co-op right now! Since I have a smoothie recipe for winterspring, and autumn, I thought a summery green smoothie recipe needed to be posted. You can check out our Super Antioxidant Smoothie which does use summer produce (but it’s not green!).
