Serendipity

blog_beautyI’ve been trying to perk up my boring Greek yogurt these days. People say it’s fine plain, but I really can’t stand it. The protein count, however, really makes it worth it. But I needed to spice it up a little, so I went over my local health food store and found a jar of Serendipity Saucy Spreads. I chose Boysenberry (without sugar). Agave Nectar is added to sweeten it up, and at 26 calories per tablespoon, neither a calorie or sugar coma awaited me. The result—I turned my bland yogurt into something that tasted like boysenberry pie filling. Fantastic. Sure, the price is a little higher than the average grocery store brand, but those sorts of jams are loaded with gobs of sugar and high fructose corn syrup. Serendipity Saucy Spreads, on the other hand, are made by a mother and daughter team here in Santa Cruz, and boast all natural ingredients. Check them out: serendipityspreads.com.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
