Life - Live On Chocolates, the Symphony, Garlic and Running...

I just got in from a run.. I cant believe I did that boyfriend urged me to go with him. & I was feeling so tired.. falling asleep in front of my Rosetta Stone (level 4!! : )  So happy that I got levels 4 & 5 now.. and thats as far as it goes. But wow, I feel amazing now. That was great.
I drank 3 green smoothies today - 16 oz glasses.. I love when I do that, cause often I only have 2. I just dont take the time to make them.. and really they are so easy..but its easy to get wrapped up in other things. ..& I really do understand the difficulty of keeping up the raw lifestyle with a busy lifestyle. I think I picked my profession to be making raw food mainly for a reason!! ; ) 

What else is going on.. well, I didnt make it to the Total Health Show this year.. I always go & I love going. But it turned out that I was working - Full-on recipe testing (& tasting) for 3 days -Last Thurs, Fri & Sat.. and then Sunday my son was coming over.. and to be honest -1. They didnt have a big name raw chef or speaker this year, like usual, and 2. I really was looking forward to a 'me' day and getting things done around here.. working 6 days a week is a lot! & I slept in till noon, with the time change.. it was wonderful, luxurious..  Oh & James & I went to the symphony on Sat eve & that was wonderful. There was this young 26 yr old conductor, who I was totally taken with, here visiting from London. I thought he and his story and the music was fascinating, Robin Ticciati. I met some friends from the raw-scene, who were obviously symphony frequenters who said they played some pieces better for him that they've ever seen them played.. really enjoyed the evening!! Fun & inspiring.

James went the health show & brought me home some Live On Chocolates made by Stacy, which are delicious. I am savoring one now!! I highly recommend trying them. Raw chocolate is definitely the way to go.  I can eat just raw nibs, love it. .. but homemade raw truffles are a true delicacy for me. I am treating myself.  I came in from running, ate a whole garlic clove.. just straight up popped the clove in my mouth and chewed and chased with water. I feel so hardcore - I've come a long way - I used to chop it up first and chase it with honey, etc..  gotta be able to appreciate some garlic once in awhile to get close to me. lol  
& now I am enjoying apple cider and truffles. Thank you Stacy!! : ) Have a beautiful night. I'm off on a testing marathon again tomorrow. Have a great day too!!! xo
