What I’m Loving Right Now

August 5, 2009 at 1:06 am 10 comments

  • I’m loving the green juice. I make it a game…to see how many greens I can juice and have it still taste yummy πŸ™‚ Yesterday I juiced an entire head of kale and an entire head of romaine + apple + ginger + lemon…and it was soooo addicting. My favorite part of juicing is pushing the food down with the plunger thingy. Apple…WHAM! Kale…WHAM! Lemon…WHAM!! That’s some real fun.
  • Here is why I love Jason Mraz: He has a raw food chef making him food on tour. This video totally cracks me up…mostly because Anya Marina (she toured with him) is a total goof ball. Fair warning…she does say a naughty word πŸ™‚ Don’t have the sound up at work or watch this with children. Her entire tour documentary is hilarious.
  • I came across another fun site, www.raw.la: Real-time news from Raw Food blogs, forums, and mainstream media. It’s one stop shopping for a ton of raw blogs and other good stuff. I’ve discovered lots of raw blogs that I didn’t know about before. New inspiriation! Love it.

What are you loving right now?

    I have the Breville Compact Juice Fountain…and I LOVE it! It’s so easy to clean up. I can set it up, juice and have it clean/put away in about 5 minutes. Here is a pic: http://www.flickr.com/photos/happyjanssens/3754707755/

    I’m loving volleyball! And Weight Watchers, honestly. It’s making me eat a lot more veggies than I normally do—-and it’s making me feel so much better.

    I have to admit…I’ve been curious about juicing.
    Not having a lot of money to spend on a nice juice ( nor a lot of room in my kitchen)—I”m wondering…Can you create juice with a blender?

    cavewoman…you can pick up cheap juicers on Craigslist! We got ours for $50. Otherwise, yes, you can try it with a blender…blend it all up and then strain it with a nut milk bag (or so I’ve heard…never tried it personally).

    I am really loving chia! I’ve been putting some in my water to help me in that dead zone between lunch and dinner when I usually crave unhealthy foods.
    Green smoothies!
    The upcoming WholeFu Challenge at RawFu!
    homemade flax chips!

    Thanks for all the healthy inspiration! πŸ™‚

    Hi Sara!

    I am traveling to Colorado (Denver/Boulder area) at the end of this month for a 2 week vacation.. Can you recommend any raw/veggie restaurants anywhere on the front range? (I remember you said you’ve traveled there…)

    Thanks in advance!

    That area is, unfortunately, somewhat lacking in the raw food area. There used to be a great little raw cafe attached to the Boulder Coop, but the Coop went out of business and they did too.

    However, there are lots of delicious vegetarian options. I would check out The Kitchen, Leaf, and Sunflower in Boulder, and Watercourse Foods and Mercury Cafe in Denver. You won’t be disappointed!

    There are Sunflower Markets and Whole Foods aplenty too πŸ™‚

    Ug… I clicked on the Jason Mraz video and found her flippant taking of God’s name in vein really awful.

    I really like your site, even though I am not a vegan and find it inspirational, so I am sorry to say something negative.

    Longtime reader here, but I’ve never commented (I don’t think), and I have been online so rarely recently that I’m way behind on my blog reading.

    What am I loving? Well, I have to join you in jumping up and down about the green juice. I first read Natalia Rose several years ago and got started on her version of the raw diet (I was already at her “level 2” so it wasn’t a traumatic change). I have a shelf full of raw books now, but Rose remains my favorite for a variety of reasons.

    I’ve been back and forth and up and down with the percentage of raw foods I eat– probably ranging from 80-95% raw with a few detox sessions of 100% (I don’t do well going all-raw as a longterm/permanent thing). And why am I going on about this when my point is simply to say that I love the green juice? Just love it. In summer when they’re beautifully ripe and sweet, I often use mangoes or nectarines or peaches in place of apples. Pretty yummy. And I love my Breville juicer, too.

    Congratulations on the beautiful little one that has graced your family, and thanks for your always encouraging and inspiring blog.

    Well, between this post and your kale post I have started juicing the kale that was overtaking my garden and its great. (I agree, its also great chopped up finely, I put it in soup like that as its mid winter here and cold). Loving the kale juice at the moment with carrot, apple and ginger – lots of ginger! Tried it with grapefruit though and urrggghhh … I have a Breville Compact too and just love it – it was a ‘new baby’ present by a beloved aunt – juice for mama – better milk for bubbs!

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

β€œFinish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
