Queen of the Raw in 2011 by kristin

queen It’s the New Year and that means it is time to treat ourselves like Kings and Queens. Taking care of ourselves as we step into 2011 can take many forms. Does it mean honoring the body by feeding it the food that best nourishes and satisfies? Is it time to take up that exercise program you’ve been longing for? You know you have! Here at Living Light we have a can-do attitude. Raw for 30 Days is the way we are beginning…how we will progress will be interesting and (we hope) inspiring! The New Year always brings the feeling that ANYTHING is possible, so why not? Take the plunge and take good care of yourself in 2011.

My son visited for 10 days this holiday season, and while the weather was a bit grungy until these last two days, he managed to do some wild mushroom collecting in the woods, and we took some beautiful long walks, had some great talks, and just enjoyed each other’s company. Oh, and we went to a heavy metal concert at Caspar Inn. My friend and blog sister Mary Elizabeth’s boyfriend Wes is in Shredead Metal, and although I’ve never before stepped foot in such a concert, they were very entertaining, and will give my son something to “dine out on” as they say, when he returns to work in the Yukon. Skies may be cloudy and grey in Mendocino County but we are never dull here. Wild Mushrooms

Just in time to be the change you want to see–you can do it!

  • 4. Going Raw by hilloah « RawFoodChef  |  January 11, 2011 at 6:41 pm

    […]  Kristin, our Marketing Director, is also going raw and brought in some “to die for” mushroom crackers. When asked for the recipes she said, “Oh! I’ve been doing this forever. Let’s see, just marinate the mushrooms and onions separately in soy sauce, soak the flax seeds overnight, add veggie scraps, parsley, miso, lemon, lime or orange, stir together, and dehydrate. Then poof,  you have it!” Ah, ok. The best things are usually accidents; guess it is time for me to start. […]
