Out with the Old, In with the New :)

If you’re on the main RawReform newsletter list, you’ll know already that there is a new RawReform Giveaway Contest underway - and it's all about creating the ULTIMATE Raw Food Kitchen :))) FUN :)))’s the info for it:

This month's RawReform Giveaway Contest is smthg I've actually been intending to put 'out there' for a very long time and...well, now feels like the time for it ;) I'm EXCITED to see the entries that come in for this...
The contest this time round involves designing YOUR 'ultimate' raw food kitchen space :))) Ideally we'd love to see drawings, if you're able to scan smthg and email it in; you could also DESCRIBE your ideal raw kitchen space, or I'm sure there must also be online programmes somewhere that let you design house spaces (oooo, HERE is one, for example)...however you're able to transmit your ideas to us, we're excited to see your input...
Please let your raw imaginations expand on this one ;) Most of us do NOT live in spaces that were designed with raw foodists in mind - so, forget tiny drying rack spaces and boarded over ovens - how would you create the ULTIMATE raw kitchen space, if you were starting with a blank canvas?
We very much look forward to seeing your ideas - please submit them to before December the 20th.
The winner will be whichever design we feel resonates most as an 'ideal' raw food kitchen environment...and the prize will be either a $50 gift voucher for use towards any of the kitchen appliances in the RawReform Store OR a kitchen gift package of a spiral slicer, one of our amazing nut milk bags and a 'Raw Kitchen' permachart.
SO, get your pencils out and get scribbling, friends :)
FUN :)

(BTW – if you’re NOT on the main RawReform mailing list yet and would like to receive our (roughly monthly) newsletters, you can sign up HERE. :)

on November the 19th I had:

1 quart water
2 cups greeeeen juice: spinach, kale, Jerusalem artichoke, fennel, endive, celery, cucumber, ginger, lime
15 spirulina ‘nuts’
2 cups water
1 persimmon
2 cups energy soup with okra and flax crackers on the side, followed by a few yummy goji yumballs
little mug of rooibus tea
2 cups water
double shot of wheatgrass juice
a tasty apple
meal of flax crackers, tahini dip and veggie crudités with veggie-stuffed nori rolls, followed by a little raw chocolate spread on sweet flax crackers
3 cups water

Mmmmmmm, I'm going through a BIG stage of physical clearing right now. I find myself house-sitting alone in my parents' house in England. An opportune time indeed to lovingly cleanse out some of the antiquities of my youth ;) My parents moved to this house about 7 years ago, from the house where I'd grown up. I was living in Iceland at the time they moved and as I wasn't around, they simply packed up and brought ALL of my accumulated 'stuff' from that house to this. Eeeeeek ;) Now, I was quite a hoarder extraordinaire...even though my bedroom as a child was rather petite, it was PACKED to the max with stuff. Yesterday and today I have been delving into the process of working through all that stuff and releasing the majority of it.
It's so interesting to me to observe things now, as a 30-year-old, about the choices I made back then as a child/teenager. My book collection from back then, for example, is a peculiar mixture of girlie tales, murder stories, books on the 'paranormal'/after-life/ghosts, comedy books, pasta cookbooks, biographies of my 'heroes' (I doubt anyone could guess who is on that list - I'll give you one clue though - one of them was the English footballer 'Gazza' - LOL ;), travel guides, 'classics' like Jane Eyre and...Mills & Boon novels (??? what are they doing in there, I don't remember ever reading them - I guess I thought they were 'romantic' or smthg... ;)
As you might imagine, the vast majority of that book collection is on its way out of the door now ;) I do find it perturbing though to consider that this strange concoction was what I was 'feeding' my developing consciousness with back then...I'm not sure there was a single book I sorted through today that I would want to encourage any child/teenager to read... ;)
It was also very eye-opening (literally) to find a stack of postcards I used to have up on my bedroom walls - they were an equally bizarre collection of Salvador Dali landscapes, a child crying, pictures of old paintings - a battle scene with someone's head cut off, biblical scenes, people in stiff old clothes, looking rigid for portrait sittings and so on...very odd for me to think that those are the images I was feeding myself daily... ;)
Well, I am LOVING this process as it unfolds - so much to discover and release and, what to do with ALL my old childhood schoolwork - that's my next big question...
