Since it seems now to be the season of get together’s (yay!), this past weekend saw us taking part in a real live potluck to echo the blogging event from last weekend, this time with quite a different real life twist to it. I consider myself and the family to be truly blessed to have an endearing bunch of long-time close friends, a good bunch of them living here in Whistler where I sit as I write this. Over the past 10 plus years, it has become somewhat customary for our group to spend the May long weekend together, with our numbers growing ever larger as families & personalities expand and the children (almost) out number the adults.

I’d have to say that of all the foods out there, deep-fried foods really have never been my thing. It’s no secret that I always gravitate towards clean foods versus, well, the alternative (and this is not to say I deem the food I don’t prefer to eat as unclean). Continue reading →

As a child of the 70′s, I remember the basics: edible flowers in wooden bowls, and lacy patchouli scented tablecloths strewn with every type of home-grown sprout & fresh tofu or edible wild green. Circles of hands & the feeling of well-worked adult fingers wrapped around mine. Continue reading →
It stands true that there is nothing more powerful than a get together of like-minded souls. I was honored in the past week to play host to a group of people that are indeed, very special to me.

Welcome! What is In Pursuit Of More? The blog about living with (just a little) less. By going without, we can gain - by giving to those who have less. Want to make a change in your eating habits for the better? Imagine how you can turn that into something positive for those who would otherwise go hungry. Go without so others don't have to. That's living with (just a little) less.
