just made the weirdest green smoothie!!

It's a cold grey day here in England, and I wanted something warm to have for my lunch, so I made up some coconut milk with a big-ish chunk of coconut dissolved in hot water. Chucked it in the blender with some frozen raspberries to cool it down, then added some Sunwarrior protein (my indulgent splurge this month - I've decided to treat myself to one new thing a month),  some rocket, spinach and watercress, half a banana, my beloved Green Matcha powder and some cinnamon. It's warmish and…See More

Just had a bowl of chopped apple, banana and blueberries for breakfast, sprinkled with cinnamon, a few walnuts and served with cold home-made almond milk. Yum. 

For lunch, I'll take a couple of small flasks of my standby smoothie (juiced pineapple, lime, greens, blended with avo) as I'm going to be out all day and running around.

Dinner tonight will be that lovely-looking Eastern Dragon Salad recipe that Penni posted.

I'm back on raw after a week of bad stuff. Why do I…

I got into the habit of reading the online newspapers every morning while drinking a cup of tea - The Guardian, the Independent, and the Daily Mail. The Daily Mail was like my dirty little secret - it's so bite-sized and chatty that it is addictive - but like junk food, leaves you feeling sick and with a nasty taste in your mouth afterwards. It's full of nasty stories, perpetuates that horrible size 0/hair-extension/fake tan/fake boobs celebrity culture, and is filled with mean-spirited…

Hello Kate:

Thanks for accepting the friends request. I am feeling  lot more hopeful today. I was doing so well with raw foods. I followed Ani Phyo's 15 day Fat Blaster --which is a great detoxifier. Recently somehow, I began making unhealthy food choices that spiraled out of control. I get Raw Food Rehab mail--and other raw communities in my inbox--but have not paid attention. I realized---there is all this support---that's what you need. I joined Paul Risse's Cleanse America--- I plan to completely immerse my self in Raw communities.    I forget when I get cravings for cheese or dairy---so many raw foods cover that for me----like Avocado--mango---Soaked cashews blended with seasonings.

Feeling so much better.  The quality of my skin--is unbelievable when I am high Raw.

The only things you can control are:

how you think and speak,what you do:  what you eat, what you drink, when you move your body, when you sleep, how you will respond to any situation. 

Master these simple things positively and you will be amazed at the changes that will come into your life!  Let this be your year to SHINE!!
