Depending on where you are, the autumn is a wonderful time to enjoy seasonal foods. Of course, there are pumpkins aplenty, but also beets, rocket (arugula), spinach, cabbage and sweet potatoes – all of which lend themselves to delicious, nourishing meals. Take care of yourself from the inside out – and sweet potatoes and pumpkin especially are wonderful fillers for one of my favourite fall foods – PIE.
The goat pictured below is Harriet, who is friends with Cindy, yesterday’s goat. They live happily together on my friend Pippa’s farm.
Make sure to stay nourished as the days grow shorter and colder this fall

The best partners are ones who make you feel full inside and out.
When you travel by air, before the flight takes off, there are always safety instructions in the event of a loss of cabin pressure. Part of those instructions are ensuring that your oxygen mask is securely fastened before assisting others. I hope that you never experience a loss of cabin pressure where you have to use the oxygen mask; however, the same wisdom can be applied to our everyday lives. Before we can truly help others, we must ensure that our own needs are met. Take time to make sure that you are adequately nourished, inside and out, so you can be there for someone else.
Self care is never selfish.
