Of the less than 30 items in my wardrobe, this is probably my favorite piece: a wrap dress made from hemp, that I bought from an artisan a few years back in California.

Why do I love it so? It is sensual and breathable because of its natural fibers that are devoid of chemical dyes. And it feels kind- kind because it is a joy to wear, kind because I know that those who created it were treated fairly and paid well, and kind because its production was a relatively light footprint on the earth.

What we put on our bodies in the way of our clothes is very much a health choice, one that can either enhance or harm our personal well being, the well being of others and that of the planet.

❤️One tip for making healthier clothing choices is to start looking at the inside tags of clothes you are considering purchasing and checking the fabric. I recommend whenever possible choosing natural materials such as organic cotton, hemp, bamboo and if desired, ahimsa silk.

“Breaking my fast” Sunday with a awesome brekkie of this vibrant watermelon. This food is so hydrating and high in lycopene (which reduces oxidative stress in the body), this yellow skinned “torpedo” is also one of tastiest watermelon varieties.
