Mila and Me by mary elizabeth

It’s been a long time since I’ve sung the praises of Mila in this blog. My very first one was all about how it changed my life. And seriously, it has. I’m still using it on a regular basis and I’m still essentially pain free. It’s amazing and if you haven’t checked out the miracle seed (it’s a strain of chia) for yourself, I suggest you do. If you’re local, you can do just that at Living Light this Saturday, May 28th at 9:00a.m. There’s going to be a free presentation on the benefits of adding Mila to your life – not only from a health perspective but as a business opportunity. And there’ll be samples of a yummy Mila shake for everyone to try. Why wouldn’t you come?

There are so many benefits to a raw vegan diet. When I eat mostly raw, I feel better. When I eat mostly raw, I look better. But I must say, when I’m following a cruelty-free way of life, I feel a lot more balanced. Not just my body, but my mind and heart. And it’s so easy, really. There are tons of cute vegan shoes and purses and beauty products out there, not to mention food, food, food. I’m finding I’m not all that drawn to vegan cheese and other products that simulate dairy or meat – but I’m a sucker for shoes and found the cutest pair on-line last weekend. Anyhow – I urge you to investigate a raw vegan diet, the power of Mila and Living Light! Our products and classes will make your journey a success.

Top Tips from Celebrity Raw Chefs at Living Light Chef Showcase by kristin

Attendees are arriving, and celebrity chefs will be on hand in the next two days. Speaking of chefs, I decided it would be a great idea to gather some words of wisdom from all of the wonderful, talented culinary artists who will be joining us for the event this weekend: teaching, creating, and inspiring everyone at the highest levels….they are all beautiful on the OUTSIDE and the INSIDE! Speaking of beautiful, we’d like to send our love to Chef Tina Jo, who took a tumble from her horse, and will not be able to join us after all. Vinnette Thompson and Sheree Clark will be making her recipes, and we know she’ll be watching from home! Get better soon Tina Jo—we love you and will miss you here at Living Light!

So here are a few choice morsels, top tips, and amazing insights from our celebrity chefs:

Low Glycemic Goddess Elaina Love

In order to find balance, first stop looking so hard. You have the answers within you. They’ve been there all along.

Just close your eyes and listen.

Mother of Gourmet Raw Vegan Cuisine, Cherie Soria

Infuse your food with love, and eat mindfully. Commune with your food when you buy or grow it, wash it, peel it, slice it, and of course, when you eat it!

“Mr Flavor” Super Chef Chad Sarno

‘Don’t fear getting in the kitchen and exploring your creativity, take the jump and let the quality of the ingredients guide your dish;

The perfect dish is 60% quality of ingredients, 30% technique and 10% risk; all contribute to the final product. take a leap

Raw Cacao Queen Colleen Cackowski

Food is information. The minerals and nutrients in food give your body and its DNA information to do its job perfectly. The more high quality information you give yourself, the more equipped your body is to perform at an optimal level.

I love the moment when someone who’s never eaten raw has that very first taste and lights up from the inside out. It’s THAT moment when the transformation begins, the re-connecting between our energy source and our spiritual and physical self.

Top Teacher, Author, and Chef Jennifer Cornbleet

When making a new recipe, read twice, measure once, and enjoy ALWAYS!

Montreal Mega Star Athlete Martine Lussier

As an athlete from a young age, my view is that physical training and living foods make a perfect pair. And don’t forget rest! A body well rested performs much better, too.

The Raw Gourmet, Nomi Shannon

If you can’t be all raw, all the time, you can still be high raw most of the time, all raw some of the, time, and happy with it all of the time.

Bountiful Beauty Heather Haxo Phillips heather haxo philips

Before traveling to third world countries—boost your probiotics w/ plenty of fresh, raw sauerkraut and kimchee. Grapefruit Seed Extract is alkalizing and contains beneficial bacteria to protect against waterbourne and food illnesses.

Green Smoothie Genie Victoria Boutenko eat more green

To get kids to drink green smoothies, start making smoothies that aren’t green, like strawberry –over time, add one green leaf, then two. Eventually kids understand that color never detracts from taste.  Or, give the smoothie a creative name like ‘Power Blaster Drink’ or ‘Green Monster Slurper’

Dessert Diva Vinnette Thompson

Keep the Vitamix on high and have fun!
