About A Life Delectable

This is Not Your Grandmother’s Health Kick

Welcome to A Life Delectable, where we’re all about healthy living that’s also indulgent. You won’t find any dread locks and circle skirts here, or wheat germ and patchouli. These things are fine but they’re part of an old paradigm of health.

I believe for vibrant and joyful living that lasts, you need health AND indulgent: delicious AND beautiful; spiritual AND fun-loving; stylish AND sustainable. You don’t have to do endless plates of rice and beans.

Here you’ll find burnt sugar ice ‘kreme’ sandwiched between grain free molasses cookies. A fine Italian Aglianico paired with smoky grilled portobellos and a black beluga lentil salad. Authentic, sweaty, transformational yoga with a little ALD flair. Oh, and a little fashion, serious but natural skincare, some candles, flowers and brightly colored dishes to make it a lot of fun.

That’s A Life Delectable in my book. Vibrant health. Care for the planet. And savoring every step of the journey.

But I will say this, the new silver Birkenstocks aren’t that bad…

Pull up a chair. It’s going to be delectable.
