A Blueberry Raw Cheesecake For A Special Valentine

Like every other beautiful thing in our lives, love is definitely worth celebrating more than just once a year. Valentine’s Day is not just a celebration of love, but it’s also one of hope in everything that is right and beautiful.

Dragobete is celebrated on February 24th, and it’s about the beginning of spring, often referred to as “the day when birds are betrothed”.

Sun Salutation Mango Pollen Smoothie

While the last August days are quickly passing and they shorten more and more, I try to store as much positive energy from light and sunshine as possible.
