I had to go to the dentist today (NOT fun!) so I’ve been baby-ing my teeth all day. Other than that, it’s been a super fun day, as I’ve been playing in the kitchen and making all kinds of Raw goodies!
FDA OKs meat and milk from most cloned animals? WTF?
I love one of the comments left on the page, “Cool! Let’s all line up for one more thing that the FDA deems safe so that we can find out 10 years from now that it contributed to the mystery finger growing out of our children’s foreheads…”

I feel the need, the need for greens! Kind of like that line in Top Gun…something like, “I feel the need, the need for speed!” – haha
I’m feeling extra wonderful today. I think it’s all of the extra greens I’m adding to my smoothies. Lately, I’ve been adding much more (and less fruit). Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of fruit…but I’m listening to my body, which I always recommend, and I’m craving greens lately, so there you have it.
I’ve also been trying out a green powder that I add sometimes from Health Force Nutritionals (Vitamineral Green) and it’s been great. I’m not usually a big fan of supplements, but again, I listen to my body. If I feel out of balance with my diet or if I’m traveling and I won’t have access to many greens, then I’m all for supplementing (it does have it’s place in my world). Plus, it’s just fun sometimes. I love experimenting when it comes to things like that, so I can’t really help myself – haha. I’ve always had a passion for health, nutrition, diets, physical fitness, and…yes, even supplements. I don’t rely on them though; they’re just something I add once in a while.
Anyway, back to my intense adoration of greens lately. I’ve been enjoying them in mass quantities, and I’m reaping the benefits. My favorites this week have been cilantro, parsley, celery and spinach. Right now, I’m off to make a gigantic smoothie of parsley, cilantro, celery, apple, lime, kiwi, cinnamon, and maybe some cayenne or garlic for extra kick.
Have a GREAT day!

I’m back from my snowboarding adventure and it was so much fun. I love learning new skills. Funny thing is that I thought for sure my legs and butt would be sore. Nope! My back and arms are aching from all the snow shoveling I did to help dig out our car. Flagstaff was dumped on with snow the past few days…it was positively gorgeous, glistening, and refreshing. That being said, it’s always nice to be back in the sunny, warm part of Arizona, of which I can never get enough.
I began a fascinating book while I was away titled, The Ethics of What We Eat by Peter Singer. Oh my…it’s a compelling page-turner. I think the review by The New York Times describes it best, “Vital, urgent and disturbing.” I can confidently recommend this book even though I only just started it.
Today’s food was simple:
A dose of E3’s Renew Me Emerald Blend
Handful of Raw Sweet Vanilla Rain Almonds
Large fresh green juice
Huge portion of curly kale salad with dried cranberries
Hemp Chocolate Protein Shake
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way it treats its animals.
