Raw Solla’s Back in Town by kristin

Avocado SalsaIt is a special treat to see one of our favorite students again. Solla’s home base is in Iceland, but her smile warms the world. I was still teaching upstairs when she was a student more than 5 years ago, and I’ve watched her progress on social media and even kept in touch by email occasionally. She’s just one of those people whose genuine warmth and heartfelt appreciation make everything we do here at Living Light feel especially worthwhile.

While she is here in Fort Bragg, she is doing some guest blogging on The Chef Experience. She took the photo of avocado salsa above-doesn’t it look appetizing?

Seeing the school through the eyes of someone who has been away for a long time and still feels the same level of excitement about what we do here is really inspirational to all of us.

Solla does a lot of great work in Iceland and around the world. She was just talking to me this morning about work she has done teaching raw foods in the prison system in Iceland. She gifted me with a beautiful poster from a former inmate who is now out of prison and is creating wonderful art to share with the world.

One of the loveliest things she shared with me this morning was that the last time she saw him he told her that he had decided to be 100% honest in his life from now on. That’s a difficult place for anyone to reach. We both had tears in our eyes by the end of the conversation.  We are blessed at Living Light with people in our lives who bring so much to the world. solla with greens

  • 3. The Raw Milk Milkman  |  September 13, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    I turned to raw nut milks now instead of milk and milkman delivery services. Too many bad politics and too much corruption in foods that are processed. Another reason to stay with organics and raw foods. I am interested to connect with those who want raw foods and nut milks delivered to their door in Fairfield County, Connecticut. And also connecting with Raw Sollo because Iceland is still so natural and I also want to connect with you for promoting your recipes to my customers in towns on my route. I am now The Raw Nut Milkman!

  • It’s Pumpkin Season at Living Light! by kristin October 19, 2013
    We enjoyed a foggy morning here on the beautiful Mendocino coast of northern California. Dan and Cherie have returned from a five-week jaunt which took them to the northeastern United States, then off to Europe – swinging London, the canals of Amsterdam, a whirlwind tour of Berlin, a memorable Ann Wigmore memorial in chilly Lithuania, […]
