Raw Girls Night Out !!!

There are a few things I find really tough when trying to stay raw....when my son orders pizza, when he makes toast, when I smell movie popcorn. When it comes to pizza and toast, I just dont go there if you know what I mean, better not to get started. Besides I am home with excellent alternative yummies.

But when it comes down to smelling popcorn at a movie I just had to get proactive! What to do? Jodi, Denise and I planned a girls movie night and I knew this would be a…

I made some delicious tomato bruschetta for dinner tonight. What should I do with it? I don't think it would be that great on a salad, but I'd be willing to try it. Any other ideas? I don't have any chips, sadly.

Its really good and I want to eat it!!! I'm missing the crunch of crostini...

Better Weight Next Time

I really enjoyed being in the vault this past initiative. I didn't lose what I wanted, but I lost some. I enjoyed the accountability part believe it or not(even when I gained). I guess it's being able to be honest without feeling judged.
I'm looking forward to the next initiative, and hopefilly better weight(loss) next time

Food processor help

Hello all my darlings,

Someone gave me a food processor and I really don't know what to do with it.

Let me explain....

I'm using a personal size blender to make my smoothies now.

but, I'm wondering if I could process the fruits and veggies in the food processor and then put it

into the blender and make smoothies.

My problem is that now my smoothies are too thick and not the best.

I just can't afford a vitamix or anything else for that matter…

The sun is still with us here in the UK which means that apart from the showers yesterday morning we have now had about a week and a half of lovely sunshine - woo hoo.

I started the day as usual with my green juice - oranges, grapefruit, celery, spinach and celtuce leaves. Scrummy. A real kick start to the day.

Straight off out for an ashtanga yoga practice - boy it was hot and lots of sweat - sorry if that's too much information. By the way my new vinyasa dvd yesterday was… Continue

I will put my best food forward and make this thing happen if it kills me. lol

Or rather... I will do this thing if it Heals me. :D

Thank you to everyone who supports me on a daily basis and who encouraged me to enter the Vault.

Part 3-5 of my 5 part raw food seminar

I meant to write earlier but I have been really busy.

The last 3 parts of the class went really well. The menu was kept pretty light, very little nuts. Not like the 2nd class.

In the 3rd class we had created 5 salads and 4 out of 5 were delicious. I discovered I don't like Jicama but the Triple Seaweed Salad and the Hemp Seed Tabbouleh Salad were to die for!

in the fourth class we made a Tomato Coconut Soup. It was my…

Preparing for 11 weeks in the Vault

I'm so excited about going into the vault.

Up until this point, I've been weighing in only once a month, the 1st of the month. That's coming up on Thursday, so I'll let you, my new friends, in on that. I'm nervous about weighing in once a week, just because I don't want to let the scale numbers determine my mood. But on the whole, this is going to be a fantastical ride into a support system and community for a lifestyle I have carefully chosen, which is something I've been…

My Green Smoothie Not-So-Challenging Challenge

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to thank everyone for participating in the last Green Smoothie Challenge.

You all did phenomenal.

I was reflecting back on my last couple rounds of my Green Smoothies, and though it wasn't hard hard to do and I had phenomenal success, I was feeling some familiar feelings that I had when I was doing my old diets.

Sitting and thinking last night I came to a decision...

After having done phenomenal on the Green Smoothie Challenge… Continue
