Juniper Ridge

This high up spot among the clay soil and grove of Junipers is a new favorite place for me. It's a rocky clamber of a climb, but the summit is gorgeous.

The blue berries were dripping from the trees and deliciously sweet to nibble on.

I'm grateful for the trees, the wild waters, and beauty of New England.

This week I invite you to taste everything.

There is a good reason why Ayurveda strives for all six tastes in every meal!

Variety in taste means a lot; it means our digestion is fully stimulated, our food contains a wide range of nutrients, and our meal has all the makings of satisfaction. When our meals contain all the tastes of the pallet, our bodies know that we are being deeply fed.

At your meals, I invite you to eat slowly enough to find the spectrum of tastes on your plate, and savor them.

Can you find:







and can you notice any astringents? Demulcents? What else is there - new flavors you haven't noticed before? How do they make you feel?

Tasting is a simple everyday pleasure, be sure to fill up on the experience above all else at your table.
