Fruit & Berry Crumble

Leave a Comment

Breakfast doesn't get better than this very berry crumble!

(prep time)

Ingredient Prep: 20 minutes   -  Cooking Time: 45 minutes   -  Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes

When life provides little surprises I've found it best to take full advantage of them.  So when we found frozen strawberries at our local farmers market, in February no less, we had to do something special with em!

With that said, it gives me great pleasure to introduce our version of the berry crumble!

Handy tips
Refrigerate covered for up to 6 days.  If using frozen berries, make sure to only thaw enough to break them apart.  Berries should still be frozen.


  • 2 apples (sliced and cored)
  • 2-3 cups fresh or frozen berry of choice
  • 1/2 lemon (juiced)
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 3 cups spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup filtered water
  • 3/4 cup organic sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. kosher or sea salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder

Add in the coconut oil, olive oil and water then mix evenly until all lumps are gone.

Add 2/3 of the crust mixture to a large baking dish and press into place evenly.

Layer the fruit and berry mixture on top of the crust (in the baking dish) then top off with the other 1/3 of the crust mixture.  Bake for 45 minutes.

TED Talk Monday: Chip Conley (Measuring what makes life worthwhile)

Leave a Comment


Today's Talk: Chip Conley (Measuring what makes life worthwhile)    

Brief Synopsys:

What are the intangibles in life and how can they be measured?  In today's talk, Chip Conley answers those questions and discusses how a trip to Bhutan to meet with a Buddhist king helped him discover a successful business model for his hotel, his staff and his customers.

"How can we get leaders to start valuing the intangible?   If were taught as leaders to just manage what we can measure, and all we can measure is the tangible in life, were missing a whole lot of things at the top of the pyramid."

Listen as he delves into the world of intangibles and discusses what really makes life worthwhile!

TED Talk Monday: Jonathan Haidt (Religion, evolution, and the ecstasy of self-transcendence)

Leave a Comment


Today's Talk: Jonathan Haidt (Religion, evolution, and the ecstasy of self-transcendence)    

Brief Synopsys:

For today's TED Talk Monday, speaker Jonathan Haidt delivers a powerful and visually stunning talk regarding self-transcendence and climbing the metaphorical staircase.  "Think about the mind as being like a house with many rooms, most of which we're very familiar with.  But sometimes it's as though a doorway appears from out of nowhere and it opens onto a staircase.  We climb the staircase and experience a state of altered consciousness."

Mr. Haidt goes on to explain that by detaching ourselves from selfishness and self-based desires we can reach a self-transcended state and gain a passion for the greater good of the group (or society, or community, etc...).

He also explains that people in today's society truly desire to transcend one's self, "that gives me hope, because people are not purely selfish.  Most people long to overcome pettiness and become something larger."  As it seems, we all wish to be a part of something bigger than ourselves!
