No I’m not drunk or high on crack. Ok I have had one glass of wine…maybe two, but I still know what I’m on about. Honest!
I truly believe there’s a connection here, let me tell you why.
Me and the lovely Sarah (who’s working with me here at the retreat) came up with a fab idea to do a sexy little detox. Lordy knows we need it having tucked in to a bit more of the Portuguese vino and cake than one might wish to.
The idea is that we do some juices, smoothies, salads and fruit and cut back a bit on the wine and cake. Easy huh? « Continue »
Soooooo…everything is going well. You’re eating a large amount of raw food. Feeling great. Looking great. You’re on a high! You think to yourself:
I’ve finally got this in.the.bag.baby!
Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
But uh-oh, what’s this? Hang on. What am I doing walking towards the fridge for a slice of carrot cake?« Continue »
Kaya will be running her very own retreat in Portugal from November 30th to December 5th at a lovely wellness centre in the gorgeous Monchique (went there yesterday, it was ten types of awesome).
I recently posted a question on the Raw Food Scotland facebook page asking raw foodies ‘who has been the biggest obstacle in your raw food diet?
The answers were interesting to say the least and whilst ‘partner/spouse’ really came out on top (‘scuse the pun fnar), it seems that there are a few people in our lives that impact our ability to stay raw.
Confused? Frustrated? Annoyed? Feel Guilty? Hopeless? Like you want to stab him/her through the head with a sharpened cucumber?
When you decided to eat raw, you were possibly just like me, barely giving it a thought what new and incredibly frustrating problems would crop up in your relationship. Welcome to raw-cooked hell! Population: YOU.
If I had a penny for every time this subject came up…I’d have about £5.63 by now.
So you’re dabbling with the whole raw food thang, you might even be doing it to the max. Feeling good. Feeling REALLY GOOD! You’ve got the energy, you’ve got the glow. You’re LOVING getting to grips with the green smoothies, making a mess with your vitamix, making an art form out of cramming more veggies in to the fridge than anyone has ever crammed in before. You’ve got it all going on and you’re almost HIGH with excitement and enjoyment.
Meanwhile…« Continue »
Yeah I am.
I’ve gone recipe MENTAL this week as I have yet another recipe for you today. Yes, 2 recipes in one week does officially constitute recipe mentalness…
I made this the other evening for the troop of volunteers working here at the retreat and it was officially ten orgasms out of twelve (see, I had to throw a sex reference in somewhere didn’t I? Perhaps I need help…do you think? If so drop me a comment below saying ‘Emma, you need some serious help’).« Continue »
So I’m at the fabulous juice retreat in Portugal, having a bloody awesome time I might add!
I’ve been eating like an actual Queen since I got here, all organic fruit, veg, sprouts grown on the estate picked fresh every day. Just bloody marvellous. I know I know, sickening how good my life is isn’t it?
Wanted to share with you what I’ve been having for breakfast the last couple of days cause it’s just so awesome « Continue »
I don’t even need to go there about the icky toxic waste they put in these things we call ‘skin care‘ do I? No I don’t.
Just wanted to share a few of my top personal super duper stuff for « Continue »
