Make Raw Food Mainstream... ;)

Posted Aug 23 2008 11:47pm

WOW – this is my 350th blog post here :O oOoOoOooo lalalalalalaaaaaa...what a joy it is to share...

By way of a jolly little celebration , I uncharacteristically donned some make up ;) My wonderful host here in Iceland informed me that Ann Wigmore used to use beetroot (beet) as her lipstick – I just HAD to try ;) LOL – LOVE it...this pic is what I looked like with beetroot-stained pink smackers...I love the fact that the wheatgrass trays managed a cameo appearance in the corner of the pic too – that was totally unintentional – just vibing with the Wigster ;) Apparently she used to use the cut beetroot on her cheeks too, as blusher ;) Hmmmm, more experiments for next time...



on July the 3rd I had:



1 quart water

mug of pleasure tea

1.5 cups green juice: cucumber, celery, lettuce, spinach, fennel, ginger, tatsoi, bok choi

plate of assorted leftovers: a stuffed nori roll, pine-nut pesto, salad, cauliflower ‘rice’

3 cups water

1 cup water with lemon juice

shot of sweeeeeet wheatgrass juice

2 more leftover stuffed nori rolls, followed by a little rammikin bowl of yummy almond/maca/lucuma/cinnamon smoothie

mug of ‘love’ tea

2 cups water



OooOooooooo next very ecstatic announcement of the day is that Ms. Shazzle-Dazzle has launched a simply splendid free new e-b ook on her site :) It is called ‘ Raw Britannia ’ and is part of her ongoing campaign to ‘ make raw mainstream ’. I am VERY excited about the impact this book can potentially have to spread the raw message throughout the UK and beyo nd...

It is a free e-book that you can print out and then take to any local restaurants in your area that you think might be open to serving more raw dishes. It contains basic info on WHY people choose to eat raw, along with a selection of really easy, delicious recipes , so the restaurants can start to prepare raw dishes. EXCITING :) The recipes are really simple – no complicated ingredients – and the photography is BEAUTIFUL throughout – presenting raw food as fresh, vibrant and appealing :)

You can download the book from HERE , print it out, then get your walking shoes on for a bouncy trot round town, spreading the good message ;) Please also feel free to pass on this info to anyone you think may be interested – together we can all take action to manifest a brighter raw reality :)

(Check out the super-cool mugs, pens and other ‘ Raw Britannia ’ accessories she has on offer too...LOVE it ;)

The final yum-pot of the day to dip into is the uber-exciting announcement from Mr. Philip McCluskey that he is compiling a ‘testimonial’ book of fabulous raw weight loss stories :) He’s looking for inspiring stories and pics to share in this new volume – here’s what he wrote about this project on his blog :



“A Picture Speaks a Thousand Words

This is the first book of its kind . Not a ‘how-to’, nor a collection of recipes, just pure inspiration. We are looking for your most awe-inspiring before and after photos, along with a one page description of your journey. We know that these photos will be an inspiration to everyone; those new to raw, as well as those who have been on this path longer.



So... what are you waiting for?

Send no more than four (4) medium resolution before and after photos, along with your before/after weights, dates for the photos and the page-long description of your raw journey. If you're chosen to be in the book we will contact you for high resolution pictures later. The deadline for submissions is July 31st, 2008 . You can send your emails to philip@lovingraw.com .”



ENJOY :)

All love,

Ms. Stokes. xxx
