Home From Houston!

We're home from a busy few weeks in Houston!

While we were there we:

~Celebrated our Mom and Dad Rainoshek's 50th wedding anniversary.

~Enjoyed a few sunny days in the midst of an unusual winter storm that swept across Texas.
Sunshine for our little sunshine.

~Drank juice every day made with the original Sampson Juicer that David used to cure acid reflux when he Juice Feasted for the first time in 2003.
Sophia says: Thank you little Sampson for a healthy, happy Dada!

~Drove a lot (I am so glad to live in a pedestrian friendly city!)

~Played at the Houston Museum of Natural Science where I found the Hall of Minerals most fascinating. (Although the dinosaurs were pretty amazing too!)

~Listened in on The Great Health Debate every night. (If you missed it, it is still up for purchase at the event price until this Friday!) While this event has made a lot of people hot under the collar, I really enjoyed listening to so many different views on health and diet. I haven't had a chance to listen to every talk yet, but one of my favorites thus far was the conversation that Kevin Gianni had with Donna Gates of The Body Ecology Diet. I can certainly vouch for her views on probiotics and fermented foods, as I've been eating some form of sauerkraut almost every day and am thrilled with the happy digestive tract that I have right now. Happy gut = happy brain = happy me! For a great little video to get you started with making sauerkraut, check out Sandor Katz.

~Explored giant abundant grocery stores where the word "local" is becoming easier and easier to find and the juice bar is fully stocked.

~Watched this show at the planetarium which put me in an altered state thinking about the fact that we are all made of stardust, literally.

~And more.......!

It was a wonderful trip, and watching Sophia and her grandparents playing together is dearly special when we live so far apart.

Back in B.C., spring is just starting to peek out from the gray of winter. Snowbells are filling our front yard and I saw the first daffodil buds today on our walk home from the library.

Hope you are well and keeping it juicy!

With love,

Katrina
