T-Shirts to help clean the Gulf

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010

Shirt by Weebeetwees. Available on

From Weebeetees:

The devastation that the BP oil ‘spill’ is causing on the ecosystem of the Gulf of Mexico is tragic. Every day 5,000 barrels of oil are gushing into our waters with no end in sight. With your purchase of the Anti BeePee Tee, all proceeds will go directly to organizations that are spearheading the clean up efforts along the Gulf Coast. Weebeetees’ goal is to raise $10,000 in funds to help correct this massive disaster. With each sale we are closer to our goal of 1000 strong against BP; save a turtle, buy a shirt.

The front says: BP filling the Gulf
and the back says: I’m cleaning it up

Cruelty-free Fashion

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

Cruelty-free fashion is where it’s at. I love, love, love Moo Shoes. They don’t just have shoes – they have belts, bags, shirts, sweatshirts and more. They are also vegan owned and operated.

The mens shoe selection is great. If you don’t want traditional combat boots because of the leather – try these! They have a big selection of seriously super cute and high fashion womens shoes too. 

Moo Shoes has a store in NYC or you can shop online at

Avocados – super food!

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

One of my fave foods! Delicious. Healthy. Creamy. Versatile. This is the avocado.

Veggie, vegan, or raw, there are a number of recipes where you can reap the benefits of this heart healthy, nutrient rich fruit.  Here’s a recipe for vegan mayo from Dr. Ben Kim’s website.

Avocado and Basil Mayonnaise Recipe

Serves 4-6


2 ripe avocados, halved, pitted, scooped out of skins, and cubed
Large handful of fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons fresh lemon or lime juice
1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste


1. Combine basil, garlic, and a pinch of sea salt in a small food processor and blend until ingredients form a paste.

2. Add avocados and process until smooth. Blend in the oil and lemon or lime juice, and then season with sea salt and pepper.

Use this delicious avocado and basil mayonnaise in place of regular mayonnaise. It also makes a wonderful dip for baked crackers.

Fashion can have a conscience

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

I am a big fan of the clothing designer John Bartlett. Not only are his collections fantastic, he has a great blog. I was very excited to read about his recent Vegan transformation. Starting in September 2010 he won’t be using leather in his designs, but instead leather alternatives. BRAVO! Look good- feel good, and feel good – look good.

Brown Rice Family

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

I was on my way to teach Yoga, on the 6 platform at Union Square. As I walked I began to hear music, serious jamming, with such a soulful vocal. Everyone on the platform was into it. It was the Brown Rice Family, performing “I Feel like Dancing.” I bought their CD and use their music in some of my classes. They call themselves a “world roots” band and have members from Korea, Japan, Jamaica, Nigeria, South Africa, and the USA. They also make organic handmade soaps. Only in NYC!
