I’ve been super busy for the last several days (in a good way). Eight weeks till summer break! 🙂
I think it’s possible I might change the world with these veggie-roons. They’re really amazing. I was surprised at how great they really were—not too sweet, not too bitter. The chocolate totally balanced the carrot perfectly.
And for the most exciting news of the day (this must be good—that stuff I already showed you is hard to beat!)… Petra and I did a smoothie workshop today at Grounded by Yoga in Bloomfield (it’s right outside Canandaigua). This is an amazing new yoga studio, just opened for business yesterday by my friend Sandy. We had 16 people (including my mom!), and we gave them 7 samples of smoothies…while we talked about the ingredients and nutrient benefits of them. My mom said it went great, so I’m going to totally believe her 🙂
This is the first time we’ve done the workshop without a table though…we made it work, but I definitely prefer to make smoothies standing up! Mom took some pics without the flash and from a distance (and she’s horrible at anything camera related…). I’ll show you a few, but just know the quality of the workshop is not related to the quality of the photos!
I hesitated at posting those pics—I do know how bad they are. Maybe someday I’ll get some real ones! I love smoothie workshops because it’s a great opportunity to share good information with people who want it. We cover everything from protein powder to superfoods….to different types of milk, the idea of drinking leafy greens, and lots more.
One last thing…
On Sunday night (tomorrow) on AMC, a new show is premiering called The Killing. My cousin sold this show to AMC last year (right before she turned 30), and she’s just spent the last several months in Vancouver while they shot the first season. She promises me that it’s going to be an awesome show (but I don’t have cable, so if you could watch it and tell me all about it…that would be great. Just kidding. I’ll find some way to watch it!)
I worked really hard this week, and I plan to keep doing it—the stress started to make my heart flutter on thursday. As the wellness coach, I can’t let myself keep that up 🙂
My solution? I did work till midnight last night so I could relax today (and smooth-ify some people). Tomorrow I will be working all day/evening again so I’m totally ready for the week (no more heart fluttering!).
What’s new with you? Would you be interested in a smoothie workshop? A veggie-based dessert? Avocado of the month club?
