Better late than ever

...or so I'm told. I'm finally back into the blog sphere of things. Once we got back from our trip (that's my sister Anne-Marie to the left and myself, in our travels) we had several more singing things, a wedding and a weekend with family to attend, and truly...I've barely been home for too long and when I was, I was really quite busy. But now I'm back, ready to make amends, lol.

Here's the "recipe" I tweaked that a few of you wanted:

Metabolism Booster

1 gallon of strong green tea

Lightly sweeten with raw, liquid honey and add as much as organic cayenne pepper as you can handle (start with 1/2 tsp). You can add a few TB. of lemon or lime juice (then it will be similar to the MC lemonade)

You can brew your tea in the sun, if you like...or use a hot water kettle. I'd use about 5 to 6 teabags of green tea. Throw in a bag or two of peppermint tea for better digestion.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my last post. I'll try to post more regularly, when I have time. You guys are great!

Hey, I noticed that you have a link to Authentic Girl on your blog. Have you read any of the author's books? I checked out her site and downloaded one of her audio seminars and thought it was great.

Anything goes with my exercise: it'll be working out at the gym (treadmill, elliptical, bike, weights) or outdoorsy stuff like gardening, walking, hiking, possibly swimming if I dare. Even doing things at home, stretching, crunches, etc. So variety but just need to get my body moving! That's my goal.

i think this is a misplaced comment, but i just came across your blog, and i am elated to find another raw follower of Jesus!
it was His idea for me to go raw. when i became vegan i prayed, and He immediately led me to my current lifestyle, which has been AMAZING for my spirit and body!

...i guess i needed to get that out, lol. i look forward to reading more of your posts!

Aimee~ Aww, thanks. I think if one is really careful with clean glass and a good place to do it, it would be fine...but that's good to know. Thanks for the heads up. You should do a blog post on it. ;)

Heidi~ Thanks! I've been enjoying your posts too...just haven't had heaps of time. Go for the Raw Fu and excersise! Love your freestyle and variety!

Paulina~ Yes, I've read a couple of her books. I really appreciate them...they're so inspiring. You should download the work book thingy...so good!

Kristen~ I'm so glad to be back too. Been enjoying your inspiring posts!

J. Gabrielle~ Thank you so much! You're encouraging...checked out your blog, looks good! God makes the best food, doesn't He? :)
