I’m not 100%, mind but I think peaches are still in season – are they? Anyway, more about doesn’t matter, you can make this with frozen peaches too. It has no sugar and no white flour, so it’s practically healthy, right? Unless you eat the entire pan in 24h, which I have never done… OK, maybe I have.

A little back story, I had a health scare a year ago and it provided a wake-up call that perhaps it was time to start paying a bit of attention to the other issues that had been plaguing me for years. JR had a fantastic experience with a naturopath pretty well eliminating her asthma, so I made an appointment for a consultation.When it was all said and done, I went home with a few herbal supplements and a whole whack of dietary changes:

No cane sugar or derivatives. Only honey and stevia.
No refined grains.
No tropical fruit.
No citrus fruit, except lemon.
No dairy products.
No red meat.

You might imagine my reaction to those last two, with my grandfather having been a dairy farmer and most of my family being in the beef business. But I tried. The red meat deal lasted about six months, and the dairy made it around eight months. Having said that, I still try to restrict my intake of dairy because it makes such a difference for my immune system.

For the first couple of months I was dang whiny, until I finally thought to ask my FB peeps for recipes. They came through with loads of great ideas! So between them and Google, I now have an iPad full of delicious entrees and treats that make the diet restrictions much easier to live with. Which in turn means I feel a whole lot better.

Back to the original post topic – peach cobbler. I found this one on a blog called jessbcuz and have made it, oh, pretty well every week since then. There is nothing better than fresh peaches! And since she calls it a breakfast cobbler, I think that makes it perfectly acceptable to have for three meals a day…

I love Double D Ranchwear. Like, sales with all my heart, recipe from the depths of my soul. Their perfectly-detailed, prostate couture cowgirl fashion made me a fan the first time I opened a Cowboys & Indians magazine, but it’s been getting to know them through social media over the past few years that has made me a lifetime devotee. Those ladies are some of the most beautiful souls you could meet.

A couple of years ago I blogged on another site about their fabulous fall line, and my favorite dress of all time. When they found out I was in need of an outfit for my first Canadian Country Music Industry Awards, they sent it to me as a gift. For real. I will never forget their generosity, and will wear that dress with pride all my life.

No surprise, their 2012 fall line has me giddy with excitement — it is ah-ma-zing! And, they came out with a line of boots that are to.die.for. So I did a little “how I would wear it” for y’all, and then you can tell me how you’d wear it.

I ordered these fabulous corduroy jeggings from Cowgirl Kim already…

And, I’m hoping to order these pieces from Double D soon!

First off, diagnosis anyone reading this practice yoga? What’s your favorite style? Though I’m at a Moksha studio, I also love practicing yin.

In a short two and a half years, yoga has become about the only thing I consistently make time for outside family, friends and work. It started as a quest to do SOME kind of exercise, continued because of the huge difference it made for my chronically sore shoulder and hip, and hooked me for life with the impact I’ve experienced on my state of being.

Yoga is really about breathing. Breathing deeply. Breathing through discomfort. Focusing on each breath to be present in the moment.

Each class, we begin by setting an intention and use this as a mantra to bring our focus back if we get distracted or frustrated. There is a hashtag movement on Twitter for #MondayMantra, so today will be my first time to participate on this blog.

This week’s Monday Mantra:
I am my best master and my worst enemy.

    Thank you for sharing! I am also highly considering making some time to do yoga. I think this could give me the peace and calm that I need personally in my life and for my body – something I don’t get from anything else I do.

    Great mantra! I’ve done hot yoga and once the mantra was “stay on your own mat.” I also read in some book (I forget which one now) about how another yoga instructor used this. I think it applies so well not only for yoga, but for life too. Stop comparing yourself to everyone else, stop worrying about doing better or not being as good, and just stay on your own mat!

    Excited to read more mantras as you post them!

    Ok, you got me! I’ve never made the time, but I have a bit of space opening up in my schedule.

    I need to add some calm & centering in my chaos!

      It’s honestly made a huge difference in my life, and I’m pretty sure my family is exceedingly grateful, haha!
