We’re one ninth of the way there. Time flies when you’re having fun.
Today’s my big day! I’ve got a date with destiny on CTV, a super support teleseminar with all you detoxing divas who chose the high support path and me and Mr. Wheatgrass are hanging out for more Raw Food frolicking today as well. Just when you thought life couldn’t get better, it explodes into tiny little bliss bubbles.
So here’s a really important thing that should have been discussed earlier. If you’re following along with the 90 Day Detox, then you’re going to want to subscribe to these blog posts. Thanks to Tami the Social Media Queen around here, we have an answer for you to the question:
“How to you sign up to receive blog posts? What is RSS feed all about?”
So says Tami:
So thank YOU, Tami, for that thorough explanation. You are the wiz around here for a reason, my dear.
You can imagine I’m feeling cheekier than ever knowing my fiery red hair and enthusiasm will be blazing a across Canadian TV screens this weekend. Just when Canadians are expecting their favorite corn chip commercial to come on, the Raw Food Fire Fairy streaks across the screen bringing good news and a rainbow of color!
Well, in the name of silliness and things that make me laugh, I have to show you this:
Hi Tera, Meet Tera!
Now, let’s face it. A name like Susan might not have the same effect on me, but this one is a rare bird. What’s more, it’s pronounced EXACTLY the same way as my name: “tee-ra”. When I read this email the first time, I so TOTALLY did NOT understand how I had written an email to myself. It had been forwarded to me from Doll in customer service. Well, well, well…
…when I finally clued in and noticed it was Tera (my mom’s best friend in high school and the woman whose name she stole for me!) I was elated and full of giggles. Some of the funniest conversations I’ve ever had are when she’s phoned me up out of the blue:
“Hi, Tera. This is Tera.”
At which point, I simply short-circuited and heard absolutely nothing.
The possibility of what was being said to me just caused a complete BLANK to take place until about 3 minutes into the conversation when I clued into what was happening and asked if we could go back to the beginning and start again! I know if your name is Jim or Jennifer, this happens to you all the time. But I’ve only ever met 3 Tera’s in 33 years, so this was fun and I thought I’d share it. Besides, it makes for another success story for our 7-Day Detox program.
What’s coming down the pipes:
Once a week I’ve got to at least stop my head from spinning and let you know what’s shaking. Things around here are busting a move and we’re having a great time. The Raw Mom site has spread her wings and will soon be flying on her own thanks in no small way to the work of Shannon Leone! Watch out for that wild one! She’s got a new book coming out about Healthy Lunches for kids and a lot more, too, so stay tuned by signing up for Raw Mom’s Tid Bits available directly on the main page for Raw Mom.
Angela Elliott, our in-house chef is rawkin’ the kitchen and we’re proud to announce and show off her new website www.she-zencuisine.com! Zen cuisine, with a feminine touch! You like? We love the look going on over here! Check it ouuuuuut.
Don’t tell Nicole I said this, because she’ll probably blush, but I noticed she signed up for Vanessa’s Super Steamy Feng Shui in the bedroom class. Vanessa’s going to be teaching all of us how to have a bit more “Fun Betwixt the Sheets” and simply how to attract romance and enhance your current relationship. I mean, what if the fact that your dresser is STILL in that same position, is the reason you just aren’t getting any looovin’ in the bedroom?! What if the dust bunnies under your bed are blocking the flow, Babe?! Let me tell you, I’ve been asking myself questions like this, which is exactly why I’m signed up for Vanessa’s Feng Shui class happening this weekend and I do hope you’ll join me!
Speaking of steamy, guess whose super sultry photo is on this page? That’s right. MINE! And don’t say it’s a sad picture, because it isn’t a sad picture. It’s SULTRY! With the help of my girls I put together a little ebook called Seduced by Strawberries: Learn the Art of Gourmet Seduction! It’s available as a free bonus for people who buy Patty’s DVD set. I have to be honest, I’ve had some pretty pleasurable experiences with figs and persimmons and have written about it on the blog. These were, no doubt, the inspiration for this steamy little number. Patty is the QUEEN of all things sensual. I have to tell you, if you lack confidence about the way you move your body, or you simply want to watch the miracle of a woman’s curves in action, then you should get Patty’s new DVD set. I watched them and I’ve tried them, but I’ll say no more than that. See the results for yourself.
Trust Monique Bastien, our in-house nutritionist to remind me that I forgot to put up the recipe for the chocolate cake I promised. Monique is the author of Have Your Cake and Eat It Too, and if there was one woman I thought didn’t need another dessert recipe, it was that one! Apparently I am wrong. VERY wrong. Here you are, Monique! Enjoy!
Remember the chocolate icing recipe I gave the other day? Well, smother it all over this baby:
“Cori’s Chocolate Cake” (this came from Cori in Israel)
Grind in food processor (about 2-3 cups sprouted buckwheat) with 1 cup carob powder.
In blender mix 1 cup dates, about 1-2 T coconut oil, 1/2 cup carob powder and some hot water. blend till smooth. Spread on mixture in Pyrex. Decorate with coconut.
And I love YOU, Verna! Holy Mutual Appreciation Society or WHAT?! Mmmmmhhmmm. Bring it on, Sisters! Bring it ON!
Glowing Appreciation: (I SERIOUSLY don’t even know how to respond to this one. All I can do is *gush* a flow of appreciation right back at you, Renata! I admit, I think it’s hilarious that you think of my when you look at your boyfriend’s fridge! Tell him I’ll think of him when I look at mine! ;-))
That’s all she wrote folks. I’ve got a date with destiny and the cameras are waiting!
By the way, just to keep my commitment to myself, I had a bath, got into my pajamas and WENT TO BED. It still counts, you know! Even if it was only for half an hour before I had to get up with the kids.
