I am getting excited about blogging so that all of you can get to know me a bit better! The first thing I do in the morning is visit and talk with my kittens Luke and Princess Leia. They are really precious and if you come over for a potluck, you’ll be able to meet them. After a visit with the kittens, I made some juice for myself and others. I made a traditional Beetle Juice and a Purple Passion! Yummy!
This morning around 9 a.m. I went to the Friday morning farmer’s market here in Riverside. I ate a breakfast of around 2 pounds of grapes and some FIGS!! I also won a really cute tote bag to carry around my fruits and veggies!
Next, I headed to Corona because some days I really enjoy peace and quiet, so I seek out different running trails. Today I ran about 4.5 miles. Then I went to see my friends, Sally and Maria in Eastvale at Southland Fields Farm. I purchased pineapple, tangerines, and some limes. Then I headed to Amy’s Farm in Ontario to pick up some mixed greens and arugula! I also went to my friend’s house in Corona to pick up a tablecloth that I’ll use for my juicing demo tomorrow at Source Yoga Studio.
I made a yummy salad around 4, and then went to the yoga studio for the 6:30 class. Mohara always leads beautiful classes, and I HIGHLY recommend yoga for EVERYONE!! Yoga has taught me so much about life and myself. I really love it!!
Those are all of the highlights for today!! Talk to you soon!
Yesterday I had the opportunity to travel with my friends Justin, Kiyomi, and Mike to Palomar Mountain for a hike. It was a perfect fall day with brilliant colors, sunshine, fresh air, gorgeous trees and all of Mother Nature’s beauty. Hiking is one of my favorite activities!! We hiked to this gorgeous Mother Tree and soaked up its essence. Fall days are perfect for nature hiking!! We also saw two deer standing in the woods. What’s your favorite hike?
While on the hike, we all ate some oranges at the Mother Tree. But after our day of adventure, we wanted some more fuel so we headed to Peace Pies in Encinitas. Mike Strawberries had two orders of tacos and Mint Chip Cheesecake!! I ate three Rainbow Salads and Justin had the Mango Curry Wrap. Kiyomi also enjoyed tacos and Mojito Cheesecake. PLEASE check out Peace Pies if you’re in the Encinitas area. It gives you some great raw options that you might want to sample!! My friends REALLY loved the food there!
My next Raw Food Potluck will be on October 14 at 6:15!! Find the Meetup Group at Raw in Riverside Meetup Group. Costumes are welcome so feel FREE to DRESS UP!!!!
Elevated Awareness will be at Source Yoga on Saturday, October 8, from 12-3 p.m. I’m going to be doing a juicing demo!! Come on out!
Hi everyone!! Welcome to my first blog post EVER! On Saturday I had an amazing opportunity to talk about juicing and the raw food lifestyle at Eve’s in Encinitas! There is a group in the San Diego area called Elevated Awareness. Three amazing men, Dave Kemp, Michael Paige, and Ian Michael Meyers, started the group to educate and elevate awareness about the power of a plant-based lifestyle. Between the three men, they have a combined total weight loss of 200 pounds.
Typically during an Elevated Awareness event, Michael leads the group through a yoga class. Dave provides the live music and Ian talks about health and wellness through eating plants. This weekend there were several guest speakers and I was one. I was a bit nervous and excited, but so thankful for the experience. My website freelyraw.com launched this weekend and I was super happy to share it at the Elevated Awareness event.
The Elevated Awareness presentation is something I think everyone would enjoy! On October 8, Elevated Awareness and Jennifer’s Juice will be teaming up at Source Yoga Studio. Please come out and experience the magic!
