Create your lifescape.

Welcome to The Pillar Life

The Pillar Life approach is a simple strategy we created to transform our lives, and we believe it can give you the framework you need for a radical shift in your own life experience.

Here’s how we see it: The landscape of our lives — we call it our lifescape — is comprised of 8 pillars: Health + Wellness, Spirituality + Happiness, Romance + Sex, Friends + Family, Creativity + Innovation (formerly known as work), Adventure + Discovery, Sanctuary + Beauty, and our newest pillar, Money + Abundance.

The pillars are a life guidance system to help you envision the grandest, deepest, richest life of your dreams, and then build the practices to make those dreams come true.

Here’s to The Pillar Life!

Love.

Ep. 64 Kyle Cease Makes Us Cry

It’s Kyle Cease everybody! He’s here to talk about transformation, faith, fear, self-healing … and to pretty much blow our minds. He calls for us to be absolutely in love with all the potential outcomes in our lives. He explains why we often don’t get what we really want. And he reminds us that the middle of life is a fantastic time to shift patterns and welcome growth. Kyle brings tears of truth to our eyes. Grab a tissue and listen along.

Tofu Veggie Scramble

Nancy: This scramble is brimming with vegetables. And the few extra touches – the tamari, mustard, nutritional yeast and garlic – really take the flavors over the top, which is important because tofu notoriously has very little flavor of its own, so you do have to jazz it up for it to be delicious.

This dish is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s super fast and easy to make, and if you want an alt for your salads, but something that comes together as quickly as a salad, then … here you go.

Beautycounter

Sher and Nance are loving the Beautycounter products. They’ve added new colors to their lipstick collection (try Garden Party for a very zingy pink) and they can’t believe how soft the Dew Skin Moisturizing Coveragemakes their skin feel. They just started using the gorgeous Eyeshadow Palettes…Nancy loves Romantic and Sheri is all about Classic.

We think this is the very best in cruelty-free, vegan beauty products. Choose your faves and tell us what you think!

Notes to Self Socks

We were in the redwoods when a wonderful woman named Laura Schmidt gifted us with the most uplifting socks we’ve ever laid eyes on. Then we slipped them on and said “COZIEST EVER”. We are teaming up with Laura Schmidt and putting Notes to Self socks in our shop because they are BETTER! Laura also gives away hundreds of thousands of pairs and that’s BETTER too.

Christine Lang’s Tiny Class

Christine Lang has created one of her signature “tiny” classes for The Pillar Life School. She calls this one “Your Symptoms are Your Compass”. We love Christine’s super practical approach to deciphering your own physical story. Sometimes just knowing the deeper meaning initiates the “cure”.

Vegan Dreamsicle Parfaits

Nancy: At the farmers market this weekend I was suddenly seized by the need to buy a 6-pound bag of organic Valencia oranges. I don’t know why but for some reason this fruit, which I usually walk right by, was calling to me like a siren. So I bought the oranges, brought them home, put them in a bowl, ate one, and then wondered what I was going to do with a bowl full of oranges. What I eventually came up with is my dairy-free take on an orange creamsicle. (Today’s lesson: cooking for yourself is often inspired by impulse purchases.)

Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Nancy: Fall is in full swing. Leaves on the ground, mottled skies, and air so crisp in the morning it feels like an invitation to start something new. To take deep breaths and begin the day with more vigor. And then end the day with a warm bowl of soup in your hands. Preferably under a blanket. Hopefully by a fire.

Salt + Vinegar Fries

Nancy: Normally I say that french fries are just a vehicle for ketchup—a warm, salty ketchup delivery system —but these are different. Oven baked but super crispy. Pre-soaked in apple cider vinegar for extra flavor. Sprinkled with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. This is an elevated fry. Eat ‘em hot out of the oven. Try them with the House Sauce recipe below!

House Sauce

Nancy:

Sauce makes food delicious. Slathered on a veggie burger, drizzled on roasted veg, served on the side with fried potatoes. Whenever I read the words “special sauce” on a menu, I will order that thing.

Just like it’s important to have house salad dressings, you should have a house sauce. Keep it in the fridge in an airtight glass container and bust it out whenever you want to rev up whatever meal you’re serving. Whether you’re grilling, baking, roasting or frying – a side of sauce will make it special.

White Bean + Olive Tapenade

Nancy: I do love an appetizer. When people gather, cocktail hour is how we start and appetizers are essential. Dips are always good to have on hand, but I like a non-dip option too. A nicely arranged plate of bruschetta or crostini looks lovely and elevates the experience. Here’s a delicious one: a bright and zesty mixture of white beans, Kalamata olives, herbs, garlic and lemon served on top of toasted whole wheat bread. Make a plate of these the next time you have guests, or just mix up a batch and have it on hand for yourself. This is also a great lunch idea: stuff this mixture into a whole-wheat pita pocket with fresh spinach, or spoon it on top of a salad.

Mushroom Bok Choy with Brown Rice Noodles

Nancy: What I’ve learned since becoming a plant-predominant eater is that it’s important to eat as many G-BOMBS as possible: Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds. Those are your superfoods and you should try to get as many of them into your daily diet as possible.

Spicy Kale Chips

Nancy: I don’t understand people who say they don’t snack between meals. Snacking is one of life’s greatest pleasures. What do you do when you’re reading a book or watching a movie? What do you nibble on when you’re having a glass of wine or an ice tea on the patio? What do you reach for as you pass through the kitchen? Without a little snack, those moments are just … sad.

Fresh Spring Rolls with Two Dipping Sauces

Nancy: Here’s why spring rolls are so amazing: They are simple little veggie-and-rice-paper wraps that feel kind of like a fancy meal when done right. Here’s another reason: I’m guessing there are about zero calories in these (not including the tofu and the sauce, but we’re still talking MINIMAL calories, so you can eat a bunch of them and still feel as light as a feather).

Chief Visionaries

Sheri Salata and Nancy Hala are soulmate sister friends of 28 years and chief visionaries of The Pillar Life and cohosts of This is Fifty with Sheri and Nancy, their popular podcast. Between them, they’ve had one of the most high-powered careers in television (Sheri); married, divorced and raised two children while working with Fortune 500 companies (Nancy). Each took a different path that led to the same life-changing decision when over many chardonnay-inspired dreamstorming sessions, they joined forces to support each other in elevating their lives and consciously create more happiness, success and abundance.
