No meat, no Dairy? Get out! (Day 3)

September 3rd, 2010 No comments

I cycled around the city again after 5 weeks of limited movement and I am so happy for it. It’s been a year since I’ve visited one of my favourite local grocers in the Mt. Pleasant neighbourhood, Home Grow-In, and it felt great to return and see how much they have grown. Deb and her staff are so friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is one of conscious community that loves the Earth and its bounty. They have chairs outside to relax and enjoy the freshly delivered produce that comes from within 100 miles of the city. I took a few minutes to sit and enjoy an orange and freshly baked multi-grain bread. It was very simple and yet satisfying for a snack.

This one act of taking the time to seek out quality nourishment in a practice of yoga, exercise and fresh vegetables completely shifted my state well-being to one lighter and less worrisome than when I had left the house.
