My Clients Have Been Asking About Wild Green Smoothies

Here is a fantastic easy way to find mineral-rich wild greens in YOUR OWN backyard!

You have been asking me about how I stay slim and vibrant. Here is a short YouTube by a young man from the raw family I've been talking about. Sergei Boutenko of the Boutenko's!

Not Sweatin' The Small Stuff At Mall Of America's Radisson

Oh Yeah Daddy Oh Yeah! It can rain, shine, tornado, whatever!

we are at Waterpark of America Radisson for a quick getaway w/the kids.

fun fun FUN!! My Fiance, sheer genius, (and such a doll xxoo) has booked me a 90-minute hot stone massage at Trillium Spa (on the very same floor as our room--not far to walk my jumbo-slided jacuzzi-soaked bod).

The kids are still playing after our family time being flushed away together, I've got my papaya, Sir has ordered some kind of wild mushroom flatbread.

Humming an old Friends' hymn, "It Is Well With My Soul" sometimes interchanging lyrics w/Louise Hay's "All Is Well In My World."

Happy giddy and Grateful! xoxo

The Secret: Pablum Or Superfood?

I've just started reading The Secret. Oh, has that been out a while?

:smiles:

So here's where *I'm* at: Is it really only worth changing your thoughts for wealth and health for your*self*?

So far the book assumes we're all frothing at the mouth to get rich. That wouldn't bother me if there was *some* acknowledgement of what I see everywhere in people: actually putting heart and soul into planetary healing, world peace, voluntary simplicity and joy in connecting.

Anyways, can't help but feel I'm being fed pablum.

That said I can't put it down! I can really use it any way I want!

When you really make a commitment like Jen and Penni have done, to the Raw Food Cleanse and Lifestyle (check out the book, btw *squee*), people take notice and want a little! ;)

Allen and Grandpa Markgraf

Eagan, MN August 2009 021

Allen is helping out at the house up north for a few days while Grandpa continues to recover marvelously after triple bypass surgery. He got out of the hospital last Wednesday.

We miss you Allen! ;)

When Soph and I dropped him off we got to pull weeds in the flower bed, pet the cats and watch their antics (Batman, Duke et al). Grandma’s flowers are, of course, just finished with their height of freshness and brilliance. All the same it’s paradise out there and nice to record a few picks.

Pardon my gardening immodesty. xxoo rawprincess

Sunday Weigh-Ins Reflect What You Do NOW ;)

I find my a.m. weight always reflects the meals and calories burned two days before.

What you eat and the exercise you get today is crucial to the successful weigh-in Sunday a.m. (Penni Shelton's Raw Food Rehab realfoodtulsa.blogspot.com)

I'm having a salad for breakfast. (from eastsidefood.coop) The majority of my calories in a.m. or early in day. Often skipping dinner or something very metabolism boosting like an apple or a veggie juice. Just herb tea or water is ideal particularly after 6pm.

Feelings of "I-have-to-eat" must be challenged, not enabled.

Grassroots food-addiction groups are helpful so check out several meetings or groups, follow suggestions such as call a food-buddy before revising your menu plan for the day. Make sure to attend at least five to eight times before judging it (your mind will try to dismiss it all beleive me.)

Yesterday I got a wake up call to notice another layer of my own oppressor patterns which then kick in victim whining.

The Day I Walked Up a Mountain With My Son (And Sister).

0711091949c

photohandoncheek7-09sanelijocindy 0711091948a

We walked and walked and it was good to hear my son’s thoughts. I was glad that he feels good about my life and who I am, who I am becoming that he chose to share some things which can help me be there for him.

My sister gave me a mini photo shoot which felt so nurturing!

I will have to add the phone cam pic of the whole family when they drove up to pick us up at the top of a small mountain, I think it’s called San Elijo park in San Marcos, you can see all the way to the ocean from the top.

Afterward we all went to an excellent Mexican food place which had restaurant quality food in a more affordable environment. We had a blast opening gifts which S. had brought back from Chinatown in New York City last summer.

What About YOU!!?

Your raw foods journey.

It's adding a salad a day? It's maybe just a desire to add one veggie juice several days each week. It could be you've already done that and your body is pulling you, you're attracted more and more to plain leafy greens and succulent tropical fruits. :)

I honestly don't know.

But, wherever you're at, I can sincerely admonish you to EAT YOUR Veggies. (And if you can't chew, the greens can be blended with a little banana or date, delicioso!) But it's so easy to forget your determination in the midst of the fast food jungles and when others around you are chomping on refined and processed foods, isn't it?!

What I'm getting at is there is a really important resource right here on the internet. It's free. That's right NO CHARGE no loopholes, no gimmicks. It's all for you and it's all starting August 10th with Bunny Berry at Rawfu.com.

There are thousands of people enjoying making progress with a 100-day raw foods challenge. And don't let that deter you. You don't have to be a fanatic to join this and benefit tremendously. Everyone is at different stages on this journey. YOU BEGIN WHERE YOU ARE RIGHT NOW.

This will be my third challenge with Bunny Berry and friends. I've defined muscle tone and gotten off dependence on workout energy drinks and HydroxyCut. I've been revamping my metabolism and I no longer have aches or pains as a massage therapist while being in the high performance range way above those decades younger than me for the number of clients I am able to see each day without tiring. (Edit: or so they tell me.)

I swim laps, I lift weights, I do cardio and floor core strengthening. I take long walks and jog. I eat almost exclusively RAW fruits and vegetables with some nuts and seeds usually sprouted. Join me! Please! It's such an exciting journey.

It fills a person's heart with joy to become younger and be able to be of service to family and community with a healthy energetic body/mind/spirit .
