Hello from my third week in Arizona (oh yes, and Happy St. Patty’s Day. Go eat something green)! Today I was lucky enough to have my feet firmly planted on the ground (airplane-free!) and to connect with a new friend from the detox community!
Meet Renae. Renae and I met over green juice (of course) and had an absolute blast comparing notes on our home colonic units, exchanging stories about being the oddballs in our relationships, discovered we had each been to the same kooky colon hydrotherapist at different points, sharing post-Rose Cleanse thoughts, and were delighted to find we were both going to Natalia Rose’s Advanced Training Course in NYC this Summer! Another highlight was comparing our purse stashes: stevia galore as well as other goodies!
The best news of all: my lady came to visit me this weekend 🙂 I haven’t been able to make it home yet and having her here is absolutely wonderful. She got in around dinner time and I made her a kale/drunken goat cheese/avocado salad (in a bag!) that she nommed on with some Terra Chips. She managed to chew and sing a cute little ditty about “a-salad-in-a-bag-and-my-lovie-for-the-win”. She’s pretty much the cutest ever.
For myself I made a very un-Britney-friendly meal that included seaweed and tahini (two of her not-so-favorites). It was one of the best meals I’ve had since I’ve been here. I called it “Creamy Noodle Sushi” but “Seaweed wrapped in Seaweed with Sauce” would have worked too.
1 package kelp noodles, soaked for an hour
1/2 cup tahini
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp dijon mustard
juice of one lemon
water to thin
Drain the kelp noodles. Mix together sauce: tahini, garlic, dijon, lemon, and water, thinning to desired consistency. Pour sauce over noodles and wrap in nori sheets. Worth every messy bite.
Dessert was two fun new treats: a small chocolate tart from Hail Merry and a Yogi’s Caramel Bedtime Tea. The tart was yummy but didn’t live up to the hype I’d been hearing. Before we dug in Britney said “I bet this is gonna taste like coconut”. To her, all raw desserts taste like coconut because of the heavy use of coconut oil. She was right but we still ate every bit 🙂
