I am slowly working myself out of the post xmas slump. (I’ve just felt a little bla- cuz the party is over, time to get back to work). I LOVE my life, I love the work I do, the daily rituals, the goals and challenges- but it is a tough transition back into it again. Anyone else feel like that? Then once your in it- it’s all good again.

I had a reality check this morning when 3 girls came over at 6am to get makeup AND hair done by me. They were bridesmaids in a wedding that had a very early start. I had an hour with each girl! That’s it! The girls don’t ever wear makeup, so that part was easy. I just evened out skin tones, added some blush, plum colours on the eyes (Haux and Blackberry from MAC). I also did the eyelash trick. Very fresh and Pretty.

I get nervous when I have to do hair (especially asian hair- so slippery!)

After 3 hours and a can of hairspray- 3 bridesmaids were ready to escort the bride at the chapel and my job was done.

Now I am just cleaning up a a bit, I made some brown rice and veggies, I am printing out an e-book but I should have got it printed at Kinko’s. I think I just used $90 in ink!! Oops.

The book I am printing out is 101 Simply Delicious Raw Recipes by Chris Kendall. We have featured him on the blog before, here is his story.

After all the processed junk I’ve been eating over the holidays, I am hoping to scale down even more on processed foods and looking at Raw and Vegan recipes is a great place to start.

Yesterday my mom and I went to Organic Lives for lunch, we ordered the “Pizza”, which is completely RAW. The crust is made from dehydrated vegetables. It was very yummy, came with a nice sized Ceaser salad too.

We also got the Creamy mushroom “Pasta”

Hmmm, I didn’t like this so much….I LOVE zucchini pasta noodles, but the mushroom sauce was not a good taste. If you like mushrooms, you might love it, but it wasn’t for me.

The zucchini pasta noodles rock though, so much that I bought the “Spirooli” machine.

I’ve had the zucchini pasta with marinara sauce before and I loved it. Much better than the mushroom sauce!!

What are some of your favourite vegan/raw meals?

Are you in a post-Christmas slump? What are you doing to get out of it?

I’m going to start with cleaning my place a bit and maybe take a walk…see where I get with that!!!

Talk soooooooooooooooon!
