Hi Friends :)
I found a great article illustrating simple tips to help make habits stick, and I thought it was perfect for applying to Raw. Check it out and see if some of the quick tips in the article can be used to HELP YOU STAY RAW!
Here is the link: Making Habits Stick
Today is going to be an AWESOME DAY!

Wow! Has it already been 10-days since my last post? Between travel to Michigan, teaching Raw food classes, writing my next ebooks and fulfilling on the current ebooks I offer, I’ve been…well….busy.
I decided to start making it a point to eat at least one rainbow a day. Every day I’m going to attempt to eat something from each color of the rainbow. On my refrigerator, I have a list of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and let’s say Purple. So, today I had watermelon (red), orange (orange), banana and pineapple (yellow), parsley and basil (green), blueberries (blue), and raspberries and blackberries (purple). Yay! I did it! That’s not all I ate…of course! I want to accomplish eating at least one rainbow a day, so that I truly eat a balanced diet filled with all kinds of phyto-nutrients. (I love that word, phyto-nutrients…it’s so bad-ass). Booh-yah!
I’ll be up late again tonight making food for my delivery clients. Let’s see…some of the things on the menu are Bell Pepper Diane Soup, Savory Mustard Bread, Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus, Pineapple Cheesecake, Big Garden Fresh Salads with Creamy Ranch Dressing, Decadent Chocolate Mousse, Lemon Garlic Bisque, Zucchini Pasta Marinara with Parmesan Cheese, and Pecan Pate Wraps. Yum….leftovers again for me :)
Until later….have a beautiful and FUN day!

Let’s see….I thought I’d write about what I’m eating today. When I woke up at 2pm…yes, 2pm. (I didn’t go to bed until 8am though! I was up all night working on my next ebook, Kristen’s Raw: The EASY Way to Get Started & Succeed with Raw Food and I just kept going and going. I was the energizer bunny!)
But, that wasn’t all I was up to last night. I was also up late because I made a middle-of-the-night Raw food delivery to a few of my clients. I made them (all Raw and Organic, of course) my Amalfi Coast Pizza, Fresh Garden Salads with diced red bell pepper and Garlic Italian dressing, Spicy Thyme Soup, Moroccan Gazpacho (recipe posted below), Savory Mustard Bread, Fresh Herb Cheese Spread, Orange Blossom Sweet Stuffing, Cranberry Candy, Fudge Balls, and Vanilla Cheesecake.
Sooooo….what that means for me….is LEFTOVERS! YAY!!! Today, I’ll start my day off with some Moroccan Gazpacho (I love that stuff!), a small fresh Garden Salad, and then follow it with a serving of Amalfi Coast Pizza. YUM! Tonight, I will finish off the Spicy Thyme Soup and any leftover Cheesecake. I love being Raw…..it’s simply delicious.
What are you eating Raw today?

Here is my dog. He’s such a good boy! Oh, how I wish I could take him everywhere with me. I’m a huge animal lover and I always had dogs when I was growing up (yes, dog(s) plural, at the same time). We were just that kind of family. Even now, my mom has 3 dogs. I would love to have another one, but when I travel, my dog stays with “grandma” (my mom) and that would mean she watches 4 dogs at once. I couldn’t make it any more than that or I’d never hear the end of it (from both my mom and my dog!) ha ha

I’m back and I can’t seem to eat enough watermelon these days! I woke up today and cracked open a watermelon that weighed about 20 pounds. As of tonight…it’s all gone. It was so good. No fear though, I always eat my watermelon alone, so no worries about not properly food combining. It’s all good.
While I wasn’t eating watermelon, I chugged a giant green juice made from fresh organic lacinato kale, parsley, lemon juice, pluots, strawberries, celery, carrots, dill, ginger, cucumbers and apples. I pretty much threw in everything but the kitchen sink!
It was d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s! I love my Green Star Juicer….by far the best in my opinion.
A short while later, I made an anti-oxidant packed smoothie with strawberries, bananas, and blackberries. It ended up being about 4 cups worth. I could feel those anti-oxidants firing away on all cylinders as I drank it, just filling me with nutrition. Powerful. I love Raw food!
And, let’s see….tonight I had blueberry pie for dinner. Gotta love Raw food when you can eat Raw desserts for your main course! Yipee!
I just finished watching Little Miss Sunshine. What a great movie. A friend bought it for me as a birthday gift and in the end….well, let’s just say I was laughing so hard I had tears coming out of my eyes. Great movie. Now, I’m typing my blog to all of my cyberspace friends and I’m watching Top Chef! I love cooking TV shows.
Have a wonderful night :)

Here is my new blog…since it’s my first blog, I’m happily naming it “Virgin Blogging.” The purpose of this blog will simply be to share the random thoughts rolling about in my head from time to time. I think it’ll end up being a “journal” of sorts for me, that I’m letting the world read! YIKES! Please don’t be offended by anything that comes out of my typing fingers and into your world. I’ll probably be posting goodies here every few days, if not more…unless I’m on vacation (Yeah, RIGHT!). So enjoy, and welcome to Kristen’s Raw World of Blog.
