random info, bits and bobs, bananas, nuts and seeds, teenage osteoporosis, raw energy, perception and communication
I have so much random information, bits and bobs, floating around in the periphery of my consciousness. I am going on a little mental detox.. right here, right now, and unloading ..sending this knowledge out into the atmosphere to get reabsorbed somewhere else.
We are like a vessels that keeps getting filled and emptied.. and the more we empty ourselves the more we get refilled. The more we give, the more we get. Laws of the universe.
I ate a banana the other day and shortly after started yawning. Marie told me it’s cause I just ate a banana.. and they contain tryptophan, the same thing that’s in turkey that makes you feel tired after you eat it (if you would eat such a thing, but ykwim) I can’t believe I am just finding this out.. I love bananas.. and that information seems so kindergarten.
Something David Wolfe was talking about stayed with me.. and I really wish I was paying better attention to get more of the information he was giving about this in particular. He was talking about eating lots of nuts and seeds on a raw food diet. How eating lots of nuts can be a bad thing, in moderation ok.. but a lot of nuts are not good for us, and not nearly as good for us as seeds are. I have heard this elsewhere and it rings true for me. He says: ‘Nuts make you nuts.’ .. & ’Seeds will give you seeds.’ They will make you more fertile. Another thing.. and this is really something I would like to know more about, that fruits are meant to be eaten with their seeds. He gave an example of an orange that has something in it which can cause some sort of fungus but the seeds contain a natural fungicide.
Monica was telling me about teenage osteoporosis, it’s getting to be a common thing. She knows a girl in her early 20’s and her doctor just told her she has the bone density of a 65 year old and that it’s from drinking all the pop she drinks. She says that it’s a really common thing these days for teenagers to have osteoporosis and a lot of it comes from drinking a lot of pop when they are young. So many people do not even realize.. I have even seen pop in baby bottles. It’s scary, the advertising and marketing agencies do amazing things with peoples heads. I think it’s really time for people to start to look beyond mass marketing.. it’s time to clue in.. We’ve been duped. They are not really telling the truth. It’s about money.. not love, not health, not truth.. money. ok, ok, I;m done.. and I was good. I was thinking of Lisa and almost started on the aspartame, Diet Coke.. which is the worse drug of all.. but I said I wouldn’t go there. ok, quick.. change of subject.
I am making cooked spaghetti sauce after this for some of my family who likes it. One day hopefully I will be able to make raw sauce for everyone.. it just might happen. I slept 4-5 hours last night.. was up late making raw chocolate cookies.. I am eating them for breakfast right now.. that’s the best thing about raw food.. totally guilt free. I could wake up at 3 in the morning and eat a bunch of cookies if I felt like it & not feel bad. Gotta love that! .. not to mention that as much it’s really good to get a full nights sleep, for optimal health, sleep lots.. but on raw you can handle less sleep much more easily I think.. still energized.
I enjoyed talking to James yesterday. lots of things.. esp about thinking things to people. Told him how I believe that we are meant to communicate this way.. we have just gotten so far away from our true nature that we are not able to do this anymore. Talking can be very limiting, transferring ideas and concepts to someone with thoughts can be so much more multidimensional and complete, yk?
& energies.. I was making buns, raw buns for the raw patties I am going to make this morning (cool!) and it was busy and he came to help me.. but after he was done I had a need to just kind of, not even reform them, more than just touch them.. and then I said I think it might be a kitchen control thing.. and then I realized I think it was actually an energy thing.. I needed to put my energy into them. I really believe that we leave energy in the things we touch and the spaces we occupy. Milosh told me after working in the kitchen one Saturday when I was off that he felt like he was me working there.. could feel the energy. James felt like he was Amber while he was wearing her sweater.
Dylan showed me something he was looking up on Wikipedia –‘plant perception’ He told me that they were saying there that plants cry out when they need to be watered.
I’m reading Anastasia, Book 1 from the Ringing Cedars series of books. The part I read on the bus was talking about how when she slowed down her heartbeat or make it fo faster, everything in nature around her corresponded.. birds chirped more, the water ran faster, etc.. She is really in sync with nature though.. this would happen more for her than for someone like us who just walks through.. she has imbued the forest, her home with her energies.
So many things.. I have lots more.. but I want time to get a bit of meditation time in. I am trying to do this more often and smaller amounts of time nd I think that might be the key to success with fitting it in.
So many things, so many topics.. I am amazed when I hear someone say they are bored. That is so symptomatic of a junk-food, depressed state of mind and body. Raw food gives you so much energy, enthusiasm, creativity etc etc.. and as David Wolfe said, you can never spend too much money on feeding yourself well.. because the more you fill yourself with health foods and superfoods, the more energy and creative you get, which leads to more money coming to you and it just goes on in this cycle.. & I truly, truly believe it.
& miracles do happen.. every day!
Have a miraculous day.. have the best day ever!

a few recipes I would like to be eating in a treehouse right now. I remember mentioning these pasta recipes before but I don’t think I posted them, & just in case here they are:
Dorit's Living Pasta
This recipe is from Master Chef Dorit’s Recipes For Life to be released in 2007.
2 medium sized tomatoes (locally grown)
6-8 black sun dried, Living Tree olives, pitted then diced
Sprig of fresh oregano (or 1tsp of dried oregano)
2 tbs Living Tree Coconut Dream
1 tsp Living Tree Alive Olive Oil
1 tsp lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
Dash Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt
Method of Preparation- Using a Spirooli or Saladacco Machine, cut zucchini in long strips, resembling spaghetti. Place in a large mixing bowl. Cut tomatoes in quarters, and add to bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix. Toss several times before serving in pasta bowls
This is so easy to make, it’s just off the top of my head right now.. way easier than grandma’s cooked version!
½-1c sun-dried tomatoes
1-2 cloves garlic
½ red pepper
½ -1 chili or jalapeno
2T olive oil
fresh or dried oregano & basil and any other spices you like.. I put in a bit of onion powder and celery salt last time, my grandma used to put that in her cooked version.
Celtic or Himalayan salt & cayenne.
Put all ingredients in the K-tec blender and puree. It takes minutes to make this.. incredibly quick!
Spiralize zucchini in your Benreiner spiralizer and voila! Pasta!
I posted the link to the benreiner gadget previously. I got it at The Cook’s Place, a great kitchen store a block east of The Big Carrot, Danforth & Pape area. They also prdered one for me from a kitchen store in the beaches before.. forget the name. This gadget is totally worthy of the time it takes to find it. : )
What else in the tree house? An amazing salad! Steve and Amber made an awesome one at work last night.. it had lots of sprouts – sunflower, pea green sprouts, he made an oil & vinegar dressing a bit of agave, dash shoyu &amp;amp; cayenne I think.. & an avocado chopped up & I mentioned to wet some nori sheets and cut those up.. It worked really well with it. Amber was really into the nori in it.. we figured there was something in it that she really needed. : )
& dessert - lots of chocolate! .. make raw cookies to bring. ..or get lots of raw cranberry chocolate from chocosol. It’s amazingly good!
OMG! Just remembered to check this out. Michael told me they finally have a website up.. and here it is! Finally.. ok, leaving for work in a few minutes and I so have to check this out!
exciting : )
Nice! ..from their website:
ca•cao means God’s Food in Mayan.
choc•o•late comes from the Nahuatl words Xocol meaning bitter and Atl meaning water.
The Aztecs credited the god Quetzlcoatl, with introducing the cacao bean to them. The cacao drink, Xoxolatl, was a sacred drink for royalty, priests, and warriors. The belief is that cacao seeds were brought from Paradise, and when the fruit of the cacao tree is eaten, we gain wisdom and power.
By the 1400s, the Aztecs and Mayans were using the cacao beans as a form of currency. The cacao bean went to Spain in the 16th century, eventually getting into the hands of Switzerland where the first chocolate bar was made in 1819.

silver linings, abundant blues, green disaster, links:opening mind, green design, facts about meat, you are the cause!
ok, here’s the deal today. It’s another day of rushing through my blog. I woke up Kaiya at what I thought was an early time, except that she has volleyball pracise and needed to be woken up an hour earlier.. so she dressed and we flew out of the house. I drove her to school.. she was so good about it. I think maybe it’s all her years of tkd practise. She didn’t get upset at me, she was a little stressed but I think if anything upset at herself. I was thinking how incredibly mature it was.. just focusing on what she could do, instead of worrying, laying blame, making excuses etc. As a mom, these little things just make me very proud. & Dylan made salads 3 times last week! wow. : ) lol
I am going to post some links and random information that I have lying around here.. and later when I get a chance to look into them myself, if I find anything really interesting, I’ll elaborate. ..or you can, seeing as this blog now will receive comments and I am all hooked up, receiving e-mails on my blackberry & everything. Maybe I shouldn’t jump the gun before it’s all tested, but I’m pretty excited about my tekkie transformation. ..just keep changing my colors and evolving.. and speaking of evolving.. do you have any idea just how many shades of blue there are? I know a lot about color and seemingly they are all balanced, yk, the color wheel and everything.. but really I am feeling a little skeptical after all my blue clothes shopping this weekend. It was all to match my new crystal. I bought a blue eyeliner and everything! ..but matching blues is another thing, there are azure, cerulean, ultramarine, turquoise, royal, indigo, blueberry, prussian, cobalt, pthalo (one of my favs!), manganese, steel blue, sky blue, navy, violet, denim, ..and , periwinkle. That’s the one I was trying to think of all along, the color of Kaiya’s bedroom ceiling. ah, good memories. : ) & these are just the names of blue off the top of my head, I'm sure there are 100's more.. not to even mention all those romantic blue names..
wow.. what a morning I am having. You should see what just happened. My friend called, I make green smoothies for her & I every morning & so I decided to go make it now & finish this later.. I have this bad habit of filling the container until its way too full.. like fruit is visible over the top.. and I know the K-tec has a habit of sliding on my counter lately.. but I wasn’t paying attention and it slid right off and all over the kitchen floor, one end to the other, and walls and even splashing the edge of the carpet in the living room. Green everywhere. It’s interesting though I find when things like this happen to me, any time there is a stressful situation.. I always get phone calls, esp from people close to me. It’s like they sense some kind of distress, something not right and call. It’s really wonderful to feel that connection. ..and another nice thing is that the boys pulled together and got onto the laundry for me. & my kitchen floor is really clean now. : )
However I have more limited link posting time.. this is going to be random..

89. When the voice and vision on the inside become more profound and clear than the opinions on the outside, then you have mastered your life.
90. You are not here to try to get the world to be just as you desire it. You are here to create the world around you that you choose.
91. And allow the world as others choose to see it, to exist as well.
92. People think that if everyone knows the power of the LOA there won't be enough to go around. This is a lie that's been ingrained in us and makes so many greedy.
93. The truth is there is more than enough love, creative ideas, power, joy, happiness to go around.
94. All of this abundance begins to shine through a mind that is aware of its own infinite nature. There's enough for everyone. See it. Believe it. It will show up for you.
95. So let the variety of your reality thrill you as you choose all the things you desire and get behind the good feelings of all your desires.
96. Write your script. When you see things you don't desire, don't think about them, write about them, talk about them, push against them, or join groups that focus on them—remove your attention from ‘don't desires’… and instead place them on ‘do desires’.
97. We are mass energy. Everything is energy. EVERYTHING!!!
98. Don't define yourself by your body......it's the infinite being that's connected to everything in the universe. 99. One energy field. Our bodies have distracted us from our energy. We are the infinite field of unfolding possibilities—The creative force.
100. Are your thoughts worthy of you? If not - NOW is the time to change them. You can begin right where you are right now. Nothing matters but this moment and what you are focusing your attention on.

There is a free raw recipe e-book available here. So many recipes that I want to try out & lots of inspiration, ideas and raw facts and thoughts. Loved reading the testimonials and comments from other raw foodists.
“I eat raw because it was the only solution available to a health crisis. Now that I’ve been eating raw I do so for the amazing fresh tastes of raw food, the unbelievable energy that as just started to hit me (finally!), and the peace and clarity it is giving me.” ~Miss Manda
“Why do I eat raw? Cos u feel like going for a jog after eating and not feelin sluggish and lazy with all that heavy food. The mind’s clearer. Less thought about food. Really appreciating each moment. Feelin the connection with nature and mother earth. Just feels good” ~ 21CarrotGurl
“As an older person I find that a raw food diet is the best way to ward off those aches and pains that are thought of as a natural part of the aging process. Twenty five years ago I was almost crippled by arthritis. Today I am pain free. Raw food was the best present that I gave my body.” ~ Joss
“So much has changed since going raw. I’ve seen my bodyfat drop dramatically (although interestingly my body ‘weight’) has stayed the same! I feel more alive, my eyes have gone clearer, it’s easier to feel calm, relaxed and happy. I’ve had skin problems that have been with me for years clear up, my hair stays soft with no shampoo, my stamina has gone up and.. well.. let’s just say I could go on and on but it’s enough to say that I feel extremely grateful and fortunate to have discovered this fundamental pillar to good health and fully enjoying life.
Why doesn’t everyone know this most basic of secrets that any wild animal could tell us – that food in it’s natural state = our entire body feeling GREAT!” ~Piers of Raw Pleasure
“Eat food with meaning; with life force. Food you truly want to eat that allows you to become who you truly want to be. Different food creates different thoughts. Different thoughts create different actions. Different actions create different directions. Different directions create a different destiny.
Are your food choices helping to create your true destiny? Enjoy the emotional roller coaster. You’re in the fun park of life and if you continue coasting on raw soon you’ll need to grab the oxygen mask as you fly so high…..Raw food is magic.
If you want a life of magic, this path is for you.” ~DurianRider

The one thing I am a bit sorry about, but not really because everything happens for a reason… is that I felt sort of distracted during the talk and I know I missed a lot of information. That’s too bad because I know David knows a lot! At the same time I know that that is just not like me.. I’m usually in the front row taking notes and absorbing it all.. so I figure there was a different purpose for me. ..like making lots and lots of raw sandwiches for everyone. : )
..and maybe it was the tachyon crystal. I got it, I love it, it’s blue. It’s Blue! Ykw this means though? That I need a new wardrobe! I don’t have many blue clothes. Lol
The one thing that I felt best about last night was seeing all these people together that I often see at work and all their sparkly raw food eyes. It’s so awesome to be amidst a group of these people.. it is just such a positive, uplifting experience. All these people working on themselves, working on the planet, spreading glowing energy. I appreciate you all so much!
To Google: Bang airlines, raw canvass.
Websites to check out: http://www.simplyraw.ca/ – Natasha, from Ottawa came in yesterday. She holds monthly raw potlucks. She says they usually have from 80 – 120 people coming each month! That’s so awesome.
http://www.ftpf.org/ – The fruit tree planting organization. David talked about this.
I met super goji girl at the after party. She gave me her mom’s website 1st: http://www.livingandhealingraw.com/
And her website, which I can’t get into.. but she said it’s just being built, so I will try later www.supergojigirl.com She says it’s about being a superbeing. I just googled and this is her:
She is David’s friend, came up with him.
I remember David saying that Montezuma drank 50 cacao drinks a day. Cacao is so major.. The cacao bean comes in every color! The cacao fruit is in season all year round, it is never out of season. ..that tells you something right there.
We shared one of David’s Sacred hearts and some of the birthday cake that Michael made. I preferred my cake.. although it’s a lot more raw & pure, not nearly as processed as David’s heart. The heart was delicious.. and I am sure most people would definitely prefer it. But not much could compare to my cake for me.. such pure delicious ingredients and so much love and energy in it. Thank you! : ) My heart radiates with so much love and appreciation. Have a radiant and beautiful day.. Have the best day ever!

So, yesterday I did quite well on my cleanse except for in the afternoon Michael, who had been promising me a raw chocolate cake, made one & brought it over.. it was really exciting. & beautiful.. and big.. and pure raw chocolate, the real stuff, with some agave and dried cranberries and cinnamon sprinkled on top. So during the day I had lots of my lemon drink (master cleanse lemonade), 2 green smoothies – one at breakfast , one at dinner, a wheatgrass shot, and lots of E3Live ..and chocolate cake. I think because I was eating such cleansing foods, and not many, the E3Live and chocolate gave me this buzzing, but really cool natural high. Just a word of warning to anyone attempting this at home.. I was up a few times in the night. I was in this amazing bliss state so I can’t say it was a bad thing but I was totally energized.. and the feeling is bound to continue because in the night I remembered there was no E3Live defrosted here & left the bottle on the counter thinking it would only be a bit defrosted. I should have known better.. but, maybe my subconscious was telling me something. Most of the bottle is defrosted. I just had a few ounces.. it’s such great stuff. : )
So I had this thought in the middle of the night.. Its a big day today, the tachyon coming and David Wolfe is talking tonight. The event was supposed to be at work – 720 Bathurst, but it got too big and they have moved it to the Hari Krishna Temple at Avenue & Dupont. I love David Wolfe, he is very dynamic, and passionate and motivational.. he inspires people and I love people who do and are all that.. but my thought was how it is not really necessary for me to see him because on a deep level (get ready for this one) I am him.. and I am Steve, and Milosh and my mom, and everyone. I am everyone and everything. ..and when you get into that space you can feel it all. One thing I was lying in bed thinking about and realizing that I wasn’t feeling is people who are depressed and sad.. and I have before and I think it’s just another frequency to get into if you wanted to.. and it just wasn’t where I was last night. So, that’s my thought for the day.
I worked late last night.. we were making raw bread-pizza crust for tonight. ..and we got a call and there is likely going to be an after show party at work.. so there is so much still to do for tonight – the show - we are making and selling salads and sandwiches.. and then the party after.. we need lots of fruit – durians, candles etc. : )
info on Tachyon energy from http://www.tachyon-partners.com/
According to quantum physics, the material universe is nothing more than a very dense form of energy. Everything that exists in this universe, from the most subtle, refined realms of energetic structures, to the grossest, densest realms of matter, is aligned in an energy continuum. Energy flows constantly from these highly refined subtle realms-starting from the causal or super causal world as it is referred to in Yoga teachings and moving down through the astral, etheric, electromagnetic levels and finally into the material realm of existence.
Everything that exists on Earth exists within is own Energetic Continuum, our bodies being a perfect example. In addition to the material, physical body that we perceive with our senses, we have several other layers of energetic bodies. Through all these layers of energy, an Energetic Continuum flows from the highest, most refined subtle bodies down to the material body. The energy flowing through the Energetic Continuum comes from one source. In India, it is called the Divine Mother. Christianity calls it the Holy Spirit, and in many modern, New Age spiritual teachings it is called Cosmic Energy. Modern physics calls it Zero-Point Energy or Free Energy.
At this point, it is important to understand that Zero-Point Energy should not be confused with a particular form of energy, such as etheric or astral energy. Zero-Point Energy is formless. It is the source of everything. All realms of the subtle energies are just parts of the Energetic Continuum.
Tachyon Energy is the very first energetic structure that emerges out of non-structured, formless Zero-Point Energy. Just like Zero-Point Energy, Tachyon is not limited to a certain frequency. Tachyon cannot be measured in the Hertzian frequency spectrum. It is not a certain type of energy. Rather, it includes all energies within itself. Its qualities are much like Zero-Point Energy, varying only in that it is a structured field.
In itself, Tachyon Energy has stored all the potential needed to create a perfect Energetic Continuum in every individualized form of life. Everything that transpires in the human body, for example, is already encoded within Tachyon Energy in perfect form. An excellent example of this is seen in the animal kingdom, where it has been observed that animals not influenced in any way by human beings live completely healthy lives.
For example, mammals have a life span that is up to seven times their growth period. For a human being, that would mean 140 years of perfectly healthy life. Of the 40,000 chronic and degenerative diseases known in human medicine, only a few are known to exist in wild animals! This is because wild animals do not have the ability to block the Energetic Continuum.
In Nature we find perfection and such is the character of Tachyon Energy. The information that Tachyon Energy contains is inherently perfect. The only thing we need for achieving health and balance in our lives is a freely flowing Energetic Continuum.

So Monday I decided to join Marie for the day and I packed a few lemons, some maple syrup.. we have cayenne at work. was thinking of the Master Cleanse. My mom & I did the master cleanse for 10 days just before we went raw and I thought it was a great way to fast.. had lots of energy the whole time.
So Monday I had a few green smoothies, a few cups of lemon juice with a bit of maple syrup & cayenne, and a tiny cup of hot chocolate that Michael brought over to me in the afternoon (hard to say no to great hospitality.. and it really was one of those espresso cups.. and isn’t real chocolate supposed to be really detoxifying? ; ) oh, and I had a couple wheatgrass and E3Live shots.
Yesterday it was pretty much the same.. but I had a lot more water and a lot more E3Live. I made a mistake and left a bottle out on Monday. I had taken it out of the freezer not long before closing and forgot to put it in the fridge.. so a few ounces were gone. So we decided to split and drink the whole thing yesterday. I had at least 4-5 ounces .. We’ll finish it today. I went to yoga class last night (which I love!) so instead of taking time to make a smoothie, which I was going to do I just drank more water. & then went into the steam room after for awhile. great detoxing. (& I skipped the chocolate)
Am feeling slightly headachy.. not too bad.. but I know there’s a few toxins getting dislodged in there.. so that’s a good thing.. But over all I am feeling so amazing that I think I will continue.
It was also cool yesterday that my new friend Eva came in & told me she was doing the Master Cleanse, on day 4 & I actually had lemons, maple syrup etc to make her a drink. That was the first time I brought maple syrup in to work. I love when life just flows and is so orchestrated and it seems to me that the cleaner, healthier and more in-tune you are the more it flows, more synchronicities happen.. life is completely orchestrated. I read a quote by Eckhart Tolle and I am trying to remember it.. it’s like life is the dancer and we are the dance. I will try to find it because the thought really works for me. It’s like its all going to happen and we just need to let ourselves go with it. ..Our highest possible good will just happen if we don’t get in the way.
Have a synchronous, flowing and beautiful day!

I will elaborate later on the books but one thought in particular is staying with me.. it is how we usually assume that to become educated.. to gather great thoughts etc we should go to school.. get a degree, or many. While in actuality it is just the opposite.. the greatest thoughts really come from within. Learning from others & schools really encourage thinking in the box, even if they say they are not. I think we already contain all the thoughts, all of the wisdom in the universe is already programmed within each one of us.. and it is actually an easier process to go out to get informaton than to go in. Most of the greatest wisdom has come from recluses. Jesus took himself away from his disciples many times to go into the forests or mountains to be alone. Moses went to the mountain top and came back with great wisdom. Anastasia herself lives alone in the forest.. and she mentioned a few reclusive enlightened Russian guys who were the basis of great religions etc. Siddhartha Gautama (Buddah) spent 7 years alone in the forest before coming out with his set of teachings which became known as Buddhism. Echart Tolle sat on a park bench for years. Henry David Thoreau spent much time alone in the woods to gather his wisdom. Odin hung fromt he tree of life for 9 days and then gathered the Runes.. it just seems that academia is thought of as the end all - be all of education and maybe doing the opposite, getting away from the classroom and people, and going into the forest or something might be more beneficial for humanity.

I liked especially that it was done on a new moon. This is a very special time of the month. It is a time for planting new seeds. Pay attention to whatever you are doing and thinking about and you will see these things developing, growing and coming to fruition over the next few weeks. A few different things have been coming up for me in the last few days and I know that whether I intend it or not.. these things will be the main things growing and being worked on in my life for this month. Life is like that. So pay particular attention to what you are thinking for these few days.. cause that’s what you will be getting more of. & Thank God Mercury retrograde is finally over.. we should all be having a much more peaceful month!
Diane has a bowl of chocolate & encourages you to have some after. Chocolate is good for grounding. Chocolate is such a good thing! : )
& apple sauce – I made the most amazing and simple recipe that I just thought up yesterday. It’s my favorite version so far! Here’s the recipe:
6 apples, peeled, quartered, cored
½ c raisins
1T lemon juice
Place 3 apples & rest of ingredients in the processor and puree. Then place the remaining 3 apples in and pulse-chop to desired consistency, texture. I like the little apple chunks in it. Enjoy!
Randy just sent me this.. it’s just too bizarre not to include : ) http://goatonapole.com/ - Goatonapole is a metareligion–an intellectual and spiritual practice whose aim is to better understand thought systems–based on an image of a goat standing on a pole. The basic assumption underlying the practice of Goatonapole is that in the relative positions of the Goat and the Pole lies all meaning. In the Goat and the Pole we Goatonapolists see the universe, ourselves, and all things. In short, Goatonapole is the enterprise of talking about the Goat and the Pole and contemplating their relative positions.

Goat on a pole photo from http://goatonapole.com/ The image that has shown us the path to the Eternal Goat is a photograph taken by Farooq Naem in Islamabad, Pakistan. The photo was submitted to the wire service AFP on May 9, 2004. More information can be found in The Apocrypha.

Its mainly a strawberry base, but also has blueberries, beets, carrots, lemon rind, garlic, ginger & E3Live. What a combo!
My mom sent me this from the daily guru newsletter (http://www.thedailyguru.com/) from Nov 16:
Believe in magic!
"... for magic to happen in your life, you must believe in magic." -- Grandmother, quoted by Lynn Andrews
"Most of the time, we fall in love but can’t remain there. The world then calls the state we were in a delusion or infatuation ... But we merely lacked, or someone else lacked, the emotional skills to hold on to the magic when the morning came. ... In truth, we can go to the moon and retain its magic for a lifetime." -- Marianne Williamson
"We think, sometimes, there’s not a dragon left. Not one brave knight, not a single princess gliding through secret forests ... What a pleasure to be wrong. Princesses, knights, enchantments and dragons, mystery and adventure ... not only are they here-and-now, they’re all that ever lived on earth! Masters of reality still meet us in dreams to tell us that we’ve never lost the shield we need against dragons, that blue-fire voltage arcs through us now to change our world as we wish. Intuition whispers true: We’re not dust, we’re magic!" -- Richard Bach

'In the words of R. H. Blyth, the great English champion of Haiku: "We return to the friends of our childhood, the rain on the window-pane; the long silent roads of night; the waves of the shore that never cease to fall; the moon, so near and yet so far; all the sensations of texture, timbre, weight and shape, those precious treasures and inexhaustible riches of every-day life."
How do we find simplicity and direct purpose in the midst of chaotic communication? How, on our necessary islands of ego do we find challenging and yet comforting companionship? In the companionship of art we are all of a time. Early or late we are to be shared. In a way we all have the same job. We are trying to evoke and reinforce meanings from the spaces we cover and the times we're given. Short or long this becomes our purpose. What we artists do is important stuff.' ~R. Genn
It's a rainy day. Dress warm. Enjoy. : )

& I even know what I am getting, a blackberry. I was told last night because I had to decide if I wanted to stay with Bell or switch ..whch I did. To Telus.. way better plan. I have a new phone # though.. but that's ok.. things change.. I'm going with the change and flowing.. and I like the new number.
'When our attitude is open, we can have fun with what the world presents' ~Sakyong Mipham
I have a friend who is an older man and I love it when it's his birthday because everytime you say Happy Birthday to him, he says Happy Birthday back to you. : ) ..this always makes me smile.
I remember Judith talking to me about how she celebrated her birthday.. how different it was from the way most of us do. She thought of it more of an internal thing.. a day to spend time with and get to know and celebrate who we are. She thought most of us have external expectations, yk cake, presents etc.. but to her it was more important to spent time reflecting and being with herself. I love you Judith. Sometimes I give spirit hugs.That being said, ( internal joke that only I will get.. and maybe Judith), cake is important too! ..and candles and wishes and traditions. I think I will make up some icing this morning before work and leave it here for the kids to ice my cake, which is in the fridge waiting. I am thinking Raw chocolate powder, honey, some almond butter and vanilla.
The rest of the posting is from the Secret website: http://www.thesecret.tv/home.html
Every single relationship you have is a reflection of how you feel inside about you. You are a magnet attracting to you all things, via the signal you are emitting through your thoughts and feelings. Every relationship you have and every interaction with every person, is a reflection of your own thoughts and feelings in that very moment. '
· Fall in love with YOU! (you must love yourself deeply).
· Make lists of hundreds and hundreds of wonderful things about you. Keep adding to it every day.
· Know that you are perfect.(do not think any negative thoughts about you).
· Know that you are worthy and deserving of anything and everything you could possibly want in your life.
· Focus on the wonderful things in every person. Look for only those things.
· Do not blame or criticize anybody, ever.
· Set an intention that you are going to see the best in everything and everyone.
· Make your happiness the number one thing in your life. (Happiness is an inside job.)
· Free yourself of the responsibility of trying to make other people happy (respect and love them enough to allow them to take care of their own happiness).
· Get your attention off those things in others that don't make you feel good.
· Appreciate and love yourself in every moment you can.
· Do not expect others to behave in a way you want, so you will be happy. Release yourself forevermore and know that you alone control your happiness and it is a choice, no matter what anyone else is doing.
· Love and respect yourself completely. Know that you are PERFECT right now. '
pics are from a Russian website that my friend Paul sent to me.. he's been sending me some really cool images from there, he says he has no idea where they are from, in cyrillic text. Of course I will post the best ones here.. except for one, which is really not appropriate.. but totally worthy of wonderment if I have you wondering. not to mention that its deleted. lol hey, its 4 am, 4:30 now, & I'm getting tired (melatonin kicking in) I just wanted to especially thank you for the pics & being a great friend. .. I am going back to bed for an hour or two. Sweet dreams! ..& Happy Birthday! : )

They make us more sensitive physically, emotionally and spiritually. More sensitive to the pain of our planet. more in tune. More depth of feeling ..more love, more joy, more sadness. This also makes us more conscientious, more aware and therefore more concerned about making a difference. Awareness is the greatest agent for change.
Most people don’t think about what they eat. They block it out. It’s like a catch 22. Conventional – modern - processed, foods make you feel dull, drained, lethargic. Your body goes onto automatic pilot and you don’t really think about what you are eating, making unconscious decisions usually led by conventional SAD (standard American Diet) addictions which again leave you dull, unconscious and unconscientious.
I went to Erika Wolff’s Holiday Raw workshop last night. My favorite recipe was the dessert, of course. ; )
It’s from Frederic Patenaude’s Sunfood Cuisine
Stellar Hemp Butterscotch Balls
20 honey dates, pitted
1c powdered cashews
3T coconut butter
½ c hemp seeds
pinch Celtic salt
Place dates, vanilla and salt in processor and mix thoroughly to a paste. Blend int he cashew powder and the coconut butter (liquid). Roll into small, 1” round balls and cover with hemp seeds. Place in the freezer until ready to serve. Absolutely decadent.
I was up so early, drove Kaiya & her freind to volleyball tryouts.. now home with lots of time for sungazing.. but no sun! It has been hiding for almost a week now.. I think it's due to make a reappearance soon.
I miss you, sun!
& Milosh & Johnny are off at 7:05 this am.. something about the planets being perfectly aligned at that time. Off to Nelson, BC. Wishing you a wonderful trip. Enjoy the sandwiches! : ) Good energy!

I like the idea of being vegan.. but vegans don’t eat honey. & I like honey.
I haven’t been convinced yet that eating honey is harming the bees.. in fact I was listening to someone recently talking about the beekeeper at the market, and about how much he loves the bees.
But I know some people are really against it. I remember hearing one girl at the veggie food fair saying that she has gotten so sensitive that she can’t bring herself to eat it anymore, it makes her too sad.
I just read a response to a post on the rawfoodtoronto yahoo e-group: ‘The bees worked hard all along and have harvested the nectar and it is time for us to steal their food!” & also ‘not to mention the fact that it's regurgitated bee spit’.
So, the honey dilemma is on.
& then I read this article on agave:
The Big Debate: Is Raw Agave Syrup Really Raw?
Maple syrup is amazing but it definitely is not raw.
Thank God for dates!
My Birthday cake!
2c of almond paste-butter I had this in a bottle in my fridge. I made it last week when I was experimenting with cookies. I had soaked and then processed the almonds through my juicer with the blank screen and then blended them in the K-tec with enough water to get it blending, trying to get a smooth, creamy texture like the bottled almond butter. It still just wasn’t the same. The bottled stuff is amazing. ..but now another dilemma because I have heard that even though it says raw, it’s not really. ??? For future recipes I would try just homogenizing the almonds through the juicer (blank screen) and using that. Way too much work processing in the K-tec!
Meat from 2 mature coconuts, homogenized through juicer with blank screen
1c cacao – raw, ground (ChocoSol’s!)
½ c honey
½ c almond butter
Dash cinnamon and salt
Blend all these ingredients together in a food processor. I had to do it in 2 batches. I have a medium sized processor, which is the most common household size. Now there is probably a better way to do this.. oiling the parchment paper might be a good idea to try but I lined a round pan with parchment paper. Spread ½ the cake batter in and then flipped it over onto a teflex sheet on a dehydrator screen. Peel away the parchment paper, smooth out with knife and then put parchment paper into pan again and make a 2nd layer with the rest of the batter on another screen. Dehydrate overnight.Icing will be easy.. have you ever mixed raw chocolate powder and honey? It is the most amazing icing. I might mix it with some almond butter and vanilla.
..and if I am off honey by then.. I’ll find an alternative.
Have a lushiously sweet and tantalizingly decadent day!

Interesting article on Mercury eclipsing the sun: http://www.nadiyashah.com/33.html
There is also more on mercury retrograde here as well as how this powerful alignment happening in the sky is affecting each sign individually.

Exotica Gourmet – make sure to check out the gallery also ..Mmmm!:
& this site is just being built.. but posting so I remember to go back & check it out later:
I made 2 salads last night that I want to post. They were both really good & easy.
1st - Asian Radish Appetizer Salad.. named this cause the lady at the asian market told me that in Korea they use these types of radishes (long 7-8” and 1 ½ “ in diameter, white) as an appetizer. They grate them and add sugar and vinegar.. so that’s pretty much what this is:
! asian radish, grated
3T apple cider vinegar
Salt and cayenne to taste
All mixed together in a bowl.
2nd - Apple Pecan Salad
1 bunch spinach, chopped up
1 c sunflower sprouts
¾ c pecans, soaked
½ c pumpkin seeds, soaked
1 gr onion, chopped
½ c raisins
1 apple, peeled and chopped
2T almond butter
½ lemon juiced
2T maple syrup
Salt & cayenne
And now I am off to make more sweet stuff. My own birthday cake – which is not until Wed. but I will refrigerate or freeze it or something. Jim just came in with 5 coconuts for me to experiment with.. that’s my cue. I have tons of cacao and dates and almonds and honey.. and good music. ..this is going to be fun. : )

On this remembrance day I would like to suggest that we remember peace and hold it in our hearts today.
Contemplate peace.. being peace, living a peaceful lifestyle.
When we hold peace in our hearts, then we can be productive in creating peace in the world.
Contemplate the wonders of the world. Life is filled with suffering ..but also of wonders. Even if you are dealing with sorrow and suffering pay attention to – appreciate and enjoy – the many wonders – the beauty, happiness and peace that surround us continually.
Smile. That is a gift to the world. When someone smiles it makes us feel better.. it makes life more beautiful. Smiling is the most basic kind of peace work.
Breathing in, I calm my body.
Breathing out, I smile.
Dwelling in the present moment
I know this is a wonderful moment
~Thich Nhat Hanh
I just had a most delicious bowl of cereal as I wrote that. Someone at work gave me a bag of sprouted organic buckwheat granola.
Ingredients: sprouted buckwheat, coconut, apple, sunflower oil, maple syrup, cinnamon and cardamom.
It was made by New Life Foods from the New Life Retreat in Lanark, Ont.
I made the milk by blending 15 brazil nuts, 7 dates and 2 c water in my K-tec. & then topped it with a bit of maple syrup. (I know, I know, I like it sweet!) Thank you Gwen! : )
My mom makes buckwheaties and I have a recipe here.. but I am googling it because I have to leave in a few minutes..
Good link- this is such a good place for me to store things to get back to: http://www.purerawcafe.com/shop.htm
Freedoms Raw recipes blog: http://freedomsrawrecipes.blogspot.com/
Ok, no recipe for buckwheaties.. but I think its easy. basically you sprout buckwheat (5 or 6 cups) and then you can add some other ingredients to it like a cup or 2 of coconut and maybe some cinnamon, apple -chopped up and whatever else you feel like. Then dry it in the dehydrator. I haven’t done it but my mom has. ; )
The cereal she is making now is made up of soaked nuts and seeds.
2 c almonds
2c seeds – pumpkin & sunflower
Apples, cinnamon and salt.. I think that’s it, not sure if she puts any maple syrup or sweetener in or not.
Chop up all ingredients in processor until chunky and dehydrate. Spread on teflex and dry 12-24 hours (I’m guessing.. but see how easy raw is!) until dry enough to flip onto mesh & then continue to dry ..until dry. ; )
k. really have to run, was wonderful.. see you tomorrow.. remember peace ..and love ..and fun.

I would love to say I used a mortar and pestle but I used a Magic Bullet mini blender.. I was rushing again.
I put in it 1/3 c cashews, 1 tomato, 1 clove garlic, 1”ginger, 1T nama shoyu, 1 T agave, juice of ½ a lime and a chili and blended. This is the dressing, it was hot but amazingly good. Pour this over a mixture of:
1 carrot, grated
Meat of 1 coconut, chopped – I used a young green Costa Rican coconut with soft meat, grate the meat if you use the harder meat of a brown coconut.
1 handful (1/2c) bean sprouts
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
I used this mixture and wrapped it up in nori sheets with sunflower sprouts and it was amazing!
Food tastes better when it is shared.
: ) My Mom always wanted to eat with someone, wasn’t big on eating alone. I think this may be part of the reason. There is just something special about eating with others.
Independent World Television is located in the same building as us and is moving from the 3rd floor ro the 2nd.. right over us. Someone came down to introduce themselves and more or less tell us that they will be filming sometimes.. umm.. we play the music pretty loud sometimes. & Hey, we are an event space.. and sometimes our events are loud also.. so we’ll get it all worked out. But check out their site. I think she came more to give me their website than anything..check it out:

interesting bit on fasting one day a week from a post by mark Jackson on the becomingyounger yahoo e-group:
“I fast on a Wednesday because that is the day on which I was born, and for me it is of special significance. My own personal belief has to do with our day of birth being your sabbath. Your day to rest your temple body from the duties it has to perform. I have many ancient writings to back this up.Many religions have rules and laws about fasting, the Mormons fast once a month, although they do not drink any liquids during the fast, which is not healthy. Catholics for many years were not to eat meat on fridays, a sort of fast. Jews had special rules and special occasions to fast. THe Hindu religion also has purification rites and fasting rituals. Many peoples believe that some sort of fasting is important for either a physical of spiritual reason. When you fast it is imperative that you drink plenty of water. I drink a minimum of a gallon of water a day when I fast. The body needs fluids to flush out the cells and eliminate poisons and toxins.
Even the person with the healthiest and cleanest diet on the planet has need to fast and give his/her temple a rest from performing its functions. I suggest that it becomes easier if you pick a certain day of the week in which to fast, then you get into a routine, and there is not question but that is the day you are going to fast. Those who do strenuous physical labor might want to pick a day in which they are not working, but I have done much strenuous labor during a fast with no problems. As you fast more often it becomes easier and easier, now I do not even think twice about fasting. I do not crave food, and I feel wonderful all day.If you adopt a fasting regimine it will greatly extend your life, and improve your outlook on life as well. I wish you love and peace this day and always, and please create for yourself a beautiful day!!

Links sent to me this morning in e-mails:
a cool mind game.. how can that work?
& also quotes from His Holiness Sri Sri Ravishankar from http://www.artofliving.org/
Spirituality is a harmonious blend of outer silence and inner celebration and also inner silence and outer celebration. When attention is given to the spiritual aspect of one’s life, it brings responsibility, a sense of belongingness, and compassion and caring for the whole of humanity. Spirit upholds and sustains life. It makes you strong and solid. It breaks down the narrow boundaries of cast, creed, religion and nationality and gives you an awareness, this uplifting of consciousness, that wars can be eliminated and human rights restored in the world today.
You know we honour everything that is sacred and when we think the whole world is sacred, that is when our spiritual quest begins. In this country and around the whole world, ancient people always regarded the entire nature as sacred. Let us see what is the mechanism of Sacredness - when we think something is sacred there is a certain consciousness, awareness that comes. I can take this as a paper but if think this is the Bible of the Gita, or the Quran how would I take the same book? With attention... so a hundred percent sacredness brings a shift in our consciousness.
We are all made up of spirit and matter. To understand from one level, body is amino acids, proteins and minerals but the spirit is made up of what? So our ancient saints, scientist said spirit is made up of beauty, love, joy, enthusiasm, comfort this is what our spirit is made up of. Spirituality is all that enhances love in us, brings peace, makes us feel wow, makes us feel wonder, makes us feel truth, makes us feel wisdom.
Children ask so many questions to you, questions indicate the scientific temperament, and the eyes of the child that reflect the love indicates the spiritual being. For a child even objects come alive - animals are not just another creature, they are alive they have the emotions. Even the sun and the moon they all smile at the child. In the comic book children think the moon is laughing, sun is laughing. You know the entire creation is one organism - there is life in every particle of this universe.
You know there is one thing called linear thinking. That is to think everything begins somewhere and ends somewhere. Most of our thoughts and philosophies in the world have been going on in a linear fashion - but, there is another fashion to it, the spherical thinking. When the ancient Rishis were asked how this universe was formed, they said “first tell me which is the beginning point of a ball” what came first egg or the chicken, tree or seed. So the spherical thinking is - every point is the beginning and every point is the end or, there is no beginning and no end. All that cannot be measured, has no beginning and no end - that is what spirituality is, spirit is and the spirit loves diversity.
Breathing is the first act of our lives. Within the breath is the secret of life. Breath is linked to the vital life energy in us, or prana. We gain prana through air, fresh food and rest – and also through meditation. A lack of prana results in lethargy, dullness and poor enthusiasm. When our bodies are lively with prana, we feel alert ,energetic and full of good humor. Prana is the very basis of health and well being for both body and mind.
Prana is more abundant in fresh air than in stale air. (compare how you feel after an hour in stuffy, room versus an hour walking in a forest or near the ocean surf..) Yet whatever the air quality we live in our health can be dramatically enhanced with pranayama - deep breathing practices that open the lungs and maximize the absorption of prana.. The words prana + ayama mean to live from the dimension of prana - to live fullness of life. Pranayama techniques recharge the cells, keeping us young and vital with resilient health and brilliant clarity of mind.
"A few times of the healing breath fully relaxes you. Your life becomes more total. All the faces of your personality come together to make you one whole person. Do the healing breath and meditate. these practices completely transforms you and kindle the love deep inside."
~ His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Diane Young has a website: http://www.circle-of-one.com/
It’s a great website. She does energy clearing, reiki, learning path integrated technique, axiatonal alignment and more.
I just e-mailed to book a New Moon Axiatonal Alignement session. : )
She has lots of interesting energy thoughts on her site “If I drop a pebble into water, circles of energy radiate out from the centre. If someone else drops their pebble into the same body of water, the circles of energy will eventually meet and influence those of the pebble that I dropped....” you’ll have to go there to read more.
& I love the quote on her main page:
"You have to stay in shape. My grandmother, she started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She's 97 today and we don't know where the hell she is." - Ellen Degeneres
I also met Vanessa Reid who had met Graham and Michael (ChocoSol guys) in Oaxaca and bicycle grinded cacao with them there. She has a blog on travelling raw!
“we were hosted by and invited to an organization called unitierra, with solar cooking and alternative ways of learning by putting values into practice and being in communion with the earth and traditional knowledge. we were in conversation with gustavo esteva, one of the most radical, committed and alternative thinkers and actors in the social change and zapatista movements. did i mention we churned raw cacao with a bicycle grinder into an indigenous and delicious chocolate drink guided by an elderly mayan woman...” from her June 5, 2006 post Activism y Mexico
& copying the raw thai cuisine recipe quickly.. and off to make breakfast for the kids. Thank you Vanessa. : )
