these R not photoshopped. it was jus incredible light.
rawvolution is a cosy little hang out place in LA
everyone is very friendly & chatty there & theres comfy sofas 2 sit on
out of all the places ive been 2 its the one with the most relaxed vibe
& a stunning array of desserts & chocolates
anyone who carries rainbow unicorn fairy crystal crunch is good by me
the 1st time i went i had a triple chocolate explosion (no surprise there)
then the next time i had a twix turtle. it had a yacon syrupy bit & buckwheaties in the centre.
daniel took me on santa monica pier
the light is incredible here
with a quality & a crispness far surpassing that of the brighton light i so often marvel at
which is obviously one of the main reasons why the film industry is here
also the sun sets really quickly – u dont get an hour of dusk like we do – more like 10 mins & bam! its proper dark
surprisingly 4 a country where everything is supersized, the pier is very small
there were seagulls, tho not loads like we have, pigeons & pelicans
it’s fascinating bcos altho at first glance everything seems so similiar 2 england, look a little closer & there R so many subtle but significant differences.
me & ani went 2 this like lingerie superstore
it was called trashy lingerie & it was very david lynch.
ani happens 2 B one of the sweetest people i have ever met
she also took me 2 erewhon where they had huge posters up 4 mi talk which was a bit freaky.
in the evening i went 2 brainfeeder with a facebook friend called jackie. nosaj thing was incredible.
i am having such a beyond awesome time. i am getting a little fed up at the lack of words 2 describe the multiplicity of magical experiences that R manifesting 4 me.
once i’d got past immigration (who let me in very reluctantly) i had the most amazing welcome 2 america.
matt & gela met me at mi hotel with a mind-blowing box of treats (of which more later…)
then they took me 2 rawvolution which blew mi mind sum more
as if by magic, we “bumped in2″ chrissy there, who i had been planning 2 meet up with anyways
so there we were, 3 english girls having T & cake. & it was raining.
i think we span matt out a little. but that didnt stop him filming us 4 his rawfoodworld tv show.
when we got bac 2 the hotel i turned the tables & filmed him, which ill put on utube soon.
i 4got mi camra so i didnt take many pics, altho gela kindly let me use hers. these R artworks from the walls of rawvolution.
2day holds in store a nail bar in beverly hills, lunch with ani phyo, the beach, & a brainfeeder night. once again i do not have the words. we need new words! 4 the amazingness of life&love&blessings&magic&bliss….
in 2010 most of mi new recipes will go on the bubble
theres abt 150 recipes in each of mi 3 recipe books
another dozen or so in ecstatic beings
& over 30 free recipes on the website
i work really hard on mi recipes. i test them out at least 3 times b4 im happy 2 publish them. each one takes abt 5 or 6 hours in all. i want them 2 really work 4U & b the best they can B.
this one’s i can go go too too
reuben’s new video. he made the music as well.
My first Christmas as a raw fooder was in 1993. I didn’t do very well, to be honest. I seem to remember going hard on the roast potatoes.
Anyhow, I’ve had lots of opportunities to invent raw Christmas fayre, and in the spirit of the season in 2009, I thought I’d compile a list for you to inspire you for your own raw Christmas menus.
Warming your gravy and serving it over your dinner is always a good idea. Warm your plates as well. If you’re using a dehydrator, try and serve as much as possible straight from it. Warm is good.
Tahini & miso gravy (Eat Smart Eat Raw p34)
Greyvy (Raw Magic p99)
You can also take any of my burger recipes and make them into loaves. My favourite is probably Burger Me (Raw Magic p164).
Nut Loaf (Eat Smart Eat Raw p72)
Chick Pea Loaf (Raw Living p135)
Mashed Parsnips (Raw Living p111)
Christmas Coleslaw (Raw Living p112)
Cranberry & Goji Relish (Raw Magic p101)
Raw Christmas desserts are easy because they are all about the dried fruit and the spices. The only thing that’s hard is choosing which one to make first.
Mincemeat Tart (Eat Smart Eat Raw p102)
Christmas Cake (Eat Smart Eat Raw p103)
Christmas Puddings (Eat Smart Eat Raw p105)
Christmas Sweets (Eat Smart Eat Raw p119)
Goji & Macadamia Mincemeat Mess (Raw Living p185)
Trifle (Raw Living p186)
Christmas Iced Bombe (Raw Living p189)
All the photos R of Matrix Tart (Raw Magic p214). Matrix Tart is the deviant mincemeat tart full of goji goodness resting in a cacao crust.
