It’s time to ditch the pizza restaurants and instead make pizza at home. After trying several different paleo pizza crusts, I finally found one that works, tastes great, and has the same texture as a “regular” gluten pie crust. I originally posted it on my blog but because it has worked so beautifully, I decided to post it here as well. Continue reading
I had a interesting and endearing exchange at work yesterday. As many of you know, I’m lucky to be able to work barefoot most of the time and my boss and co-workers are very much used to it and very much aware of my lifestyle choice.
Anyhow, two web developers were hired last week and yesterday was their first day at the office. As usual, I was barefoot at work today but none of them said anything, or didn’t even seem faced at my lack of footwear; which I found rather refreshing, since I often find myself explaining my bare feet to new employees or clients when they first meet me.
Since it is FREEZING outside right now, I wanted to post these yummy spice cookies sure to warm you up! I love eating these with coffee in the morning, but they are awesome directly from the oven too. They have a wonderful crispy outside with a chewy inside. I will warn you, they are highly addictive! Of course, always eat them in moderation for a happy, healthy body.
Barefooting has been quite difficult lately with the single digit temperatures. I had to bust out my moccasins. I am actually quite surprised they keep my feet so warm, more so than my 5 fingers. I can’t wait until it warms up again so I can get some quality time soaking in electrons and feeling the dirt under my toes again. I can totally tell a difference in my health from the lack of grounding, plus shoes give me anxiety!

Over the last 20 years, in 6 different companies, I’ve been lucky to say, “I’m barefoot at work most of the time”. Indeed, no shoes or socks – just me and my old pair of bare feet. Interestingly enough, most people who know I work barefoot, even accomplished barefooters, tend to think I am a special case. They believe it is nearly impossible for anyone in the western world, working in an office environment, to be able to spend most of their working time in bare feet; let alone interact normally with both co-workers and clients without being properly “attired”. Well, I beg to differ, simply because there is nothing special or unique about me: I’m just a graphic designer, working for a small web development firm, who happens to prefer being barefoot and I’ve been doing it for the last 20 years with virtually no problems.
Granted, I happen to work in a field where dressing casually comes with the territory. Nevertheless, I am yet to encounter an office, even among the most casual, where barefooting is the norm. Albeit, like in any aspect of my barefoot lifestyle, there are times when I do feel it’s more appropriate to wear shoes at work: mostly, as a favour to my boss, when meeting new clients for the first time; in which cases, my footwear of choice is usually a rather old pair of Birkenstock sandals. Nevertheless, I estimate that, on average, I spend about 90% of my time at work with nothing on my feet.
