    Life Force Lesson #6: The Gift of Simplicity

It’s time to simplify your life—and that goes for your diet, too!

    Spinning in Circles

    Ana's Lazy Girl Food Tip: Stimulate the Senses

    Hot Baths & Acorn Squash

    For a chilly evening at home, I have a blissful routine. I walk through the door, cut an acorn squash in half (scooping out the seeds) and put in into the oven at 400°F. Then I turn on the taps in my bathtub.
