Blessed and Blissed in BC...

Alllllllllllrighty then…on we flow and here I am now in Vancouver, BC…hurray :) Despite the incessant downpour here, it seems like a delightful place and I’m very happy to be here and especially to be back with my man…ahhhhhhh, I breathe deeeeep and give gratitude ;) I was also treated to breathtaking views over the Rocky Mountains on the plane journey yesterday and today experienced the fun and revelry of the ‘Taste of Health’ expo here in Vancouver…the raw food presence was STRONG – it was wonderful to see, for a festival that was not particularly angled towards raw food…Raw BC were there with a booth, Gorilla Foods and others were around, doing food demos and selling raw snacks, one woman was promoting a raw retreat centre, Doug Graham had a booth and gave talks and Matt and I were delighted to speak to a packed room of vibrant Vancouverites…considering we were only added to the programme a few days ago, it was quite some turnout and we squished all we could into the hour time-slot ;) Thanks to all of you who joined us…

on September the 29th I had:

1 litre water
600ml green juice with apple
500ml green juice with apple
1 apple
4 tbsp chia soaked in water, mixed with mulberries
3 dried pineapple rings
500ml water
box of prune plums
500ml water
water and meat of one young coconut
700ml green juice with carrot and apple
little bowl of spirulina mixed with lucuma, mesquite, water and mulberries
500ml water

For those in the Vancouver area who didn’t hear us speak today and would like to come along to an event, I’m happy to say we have another couple lined up for you precious northern-dwelling petals ;)

Firstly, the Monarch and I will both be speaking next Saturday, the 6th of October, at a raw potluck being held at this address:
907 West 33rd Ave, corner of Laurel Street, starting from 5pm.
(Please bring an organic, raw vegan dish to share)

Then later this month, on October the 27th, I will be giving a talk at the Yoga West Studio, at this address: 2662 West 4th Ave, from 3pm.
Hope to see you at one of those events if you’re around ;)

on September the 30th I had:

1.3 litres water
700ml green juice with carrot
water of one young coconut
½ a bowl of chia soaked in water mixed with lucuma and mulberries
500ml water
a few slices of dried pineapple, an organic mango
500ml green juice with lemon
the rest of the chia mix from above, with some ridiculously yummy Artisana Amazon Bliss Butter – mmmmmmmm :)
1 litre water

When I was Juice Feasting for a few days last week, many of you wrote asking why I eat bee pollen when I Feast…well, basically, I find it very supportive during JF-ing, without taxing my digestive system…which, after all, is the whole focus of JF-ing – giving your body a break from digestion, so it can focus on elimination of old nonsense from the structure instead… Here too is what I wrote in ‘A Juice Feaster’s Handbook’ abt pollen:

Bee Pollen – 1-2 tbsps a day. Use fresh bee pollen and keep refrigerated or in a freezer. Bee pollen is said to be a ‘complete food’ and contains an extraordinary amount of minerals, easily-assimilated protein and enzymes, making it a great digestive aid. (Again, bee pollen is obviously not a vegan product, so may not appeal to all.)”

Hope that answered that for y’all…you can also read more if you like, in the handbook HERE

One love,
