My 90-Day Clean Raw Food Mission – Kristen Suzanne’s Raw Reboot™ – Update #5

by Kristen Suzanne in food journal, Kristen Suzanne

Helllllloooooo super star friends! Here I am…. it’s been over three weeks since I first blogged about My 90-Day Clean Raw Food Mission. Has it really been that long already?

Soooo…. How do I feel? Mmmmmm…. F*cking GREAT!!!!! Sorry for the language, friends, but tis true… I have a potty mouth. I say my potty words with nothing but loooooove though. :)

What have I noticed over the past days with this blissful and nourishing food I’m eating? This sublime life I’m living? Well, a few things! 

Going out – I had a couple of moments where I wondered when I was going to get a break making food. Thankfully, the food style I’ve chosen is effortless for the most part, so doing this every day for every meal makes it that much easier. That being said, there are times that I’d love to wiggle my nose, cross my arms, and poof(!) have a raw meal in front of me. So what did I do? I went out to eat this week. We went to Chakra 4 Herbs (a lovely breastfeeding friendly place) where I met up with Karen Knowler last year… anyway, I digress (I’m feeling a bit chatty today)… I went there for some lovely raw foods. We ate lunch, I bought some extras to-go, and life was good. I’m going back Friday for more. Their food is heavenly. And, now that I’m officially calling myself a tea drinker (that’s a whole other post!!!), with Chakra 4 Herbs being a big tea house, it’s the best of everything.

What would I do, however, if I didn’t have a couple of raw places within a 30 minute drive? Well, I’d order raw foods online so that I could take a bit of time off from the kitchen (we all need a break once in a while, right?). My favorites so far are Pure Market Express and RAWvolution. UPDATE (1/25/12) – Although I’m listing Pure Market Express here as a source, I want to note a couple of things. In the past I’ve evaluated their food and loved many things and I’ve had a couple of things that I’m not crazy about. Also, I’ve heard of complaints about their policies, rancid nuts, etc. I only think it’s fair that I let you know.

My 90-Day Clean Raw Food Mission – Kristen Suzanne’s Raw Reboot™ – Update #4

by Kristen Suzanne in Kristen Suzanne

Whew! It’s been one of those “mama in demand” types of week. Kamea is teething so we’re getting oodles of snuzzling time, where I reflect on my vision, goals, intentions, and bliss out. I gotta say that I’m reeeeeally loving life and the growth I’m experiencing, the learning, adapting, and becoming the best Total Ethereal Goddessness I can be.

Because of my schedule lately, I haven’t been able to get to my computer to work as much, so I wasn’t able to post the review of my new dehydrator, The Sedona by TriBest. I will work on it this week (fingers crossed). I also have book reviews coming, my post on enemas (and my first colonic is Thursday!), Irish moss (how to prepare it, why use it, and how to use it), beauty rituals (face, body, and teeth), and soooo much more to share. Oh, and I’m working on my January email newsletter (sign up here). So stay tuned for all of these goodies!

My 90-Day Clean Raw Food Mission – Kristen Suzanne’s Raw Reboot™ – Update #3

by Kristen Suzanne in Kristen Suzanne

Ethereal Goddessness

Ahhhhh what can I say? I’m blissing out with my new life. I’m transforming and staying focused yet opened. Everything is awesome. Wonderful. Feeeeeeeling beautiful inside and out. I’m making changes like never before in my life and it’s exciting me beyond measure. I’m stronger mentally, physically, and spiritually. I feel like the there’s healthy pruning going on inside my head… especially with TV cleanse I wrote about in post #1 that’s slowly taking shape.

Don’t you love this picture? It was the card I selected from a deck back in the fall when I started thinking about the need for a transformation, knowing things needed to change in my life. I had it set aside until I noticed it this week! How friggin’ perfect, eh?

By the way, I’ve been getting awesome feedback and questions in the comments of both posts (#1 and #2) so far… be sure to check them out as I’ve answered questions, etc.

OK! Things I’m working on and noticing the past few days…

My 90-Day Clean Raw Food Mission – Kristen Suzanne’s Raw Reboot™

by Kristen Suzanne in food journal, Kristen Suzanne

A new time is upon me. A new dawn. A new life. As I wrote in a previous post, I’m feeling particularly drawn to a clean, easy, and pure raw lifestyle right now. I officially started it December 27 and will keep at it until April 1, at which time I’ll reassess, possibly dial things back a bit.

I feel in my heart of hearts that an all-raw diet can be wonderful when done correctly, as well as a moderate or high raw diet. (All vegan, of course). I don’t think cooked, whole vegan foods are the devil. Actually, I think they’re great when you want them. My philosophy has always been to listen to my body, which draws me to various levels of raw at different times of the year. The body has cycles. Rhythms. I go with them.

Right now, I’m focusing on eating 100% all raw and living foods. Consider it a full blown Raw Reboot. But as you’ll see, I’m going beyond just food with this. Furthermore, I’m being mindful of breastfeeding and also trying to get pregnant (therefore I’m tracking calories so I don’t dip too low). If I weren’t doing those things, this plan would be lighter.

So, for those of you who haven’t read it yet, here’s a link!

Kristen Suzanne Going Ons… Books, Apps, and Enjoying Life

by Kristen Suzanne in Kristen Suzanne

It’s been such a nice couple of weeks. Ever since I scaled back my workload, I’ve been spending more time relaxing… doing things like reading fiction while Kamea sleeps, playing Words with Friends on my iPhone, exercising daily, and overall enjoying a slower paced life. I likey!

Books: I want to rent The Lincoln Lawyer when it comes out on DVD, but thought it’d be fun to read the book first. I was right. I really enjoyed it and finished it in about three days. Have you read it? Did you like it? Have you read anything else by this author, Michael Connelly? I’m trying to figure out where this book fits in with all of his other titles to decide which of his to read next. Any suggestions? Until I figure that out, I decided to read The Hunger Games, but oh dear(!) it’s a bit disturbing so far. I was going to stop reading it but so many people have recommended it – plus – I hear it’ll be made into a movie. Does anyone have thoughts on this? Should I keep reading? Is it worth it?

I usually read non-fiction books for research and work (fitness, nutrition, etc), but as I said, I’m scaling back a bit to take a breather and enjoy my family more. Do you have any fun and fast paced, page turning titles you recommend? Read More »

Exciting news… I’ve been dying to share something with you all for awhile now. As some of you noticed, I’ve been working on recipes for my next book. But, what I didn’t mention is that my next book will be published by Chronicle Books! Yep! I’m teaming up with this great publisher and the estimate for the book to be in print, and available to you…. Spring 2012. It seems a long way off, but I promise… it’ll be worth the wait! I’ve been hard at work creating the most amazing raw food recipes you’ll ever taste.
