Look for my article on "Emotional Eating" in the upcoming Spring 2010 Issue of Purely Delicious Magazine

It is such a pleasure to contribute to this beautiful magazine, I can't begin to express how grateful I am!

If you've ever browsed my blog, you know that emotional eating is a subject that is very dear to my heart.  

I have struggled with emotional and compulsive binge eating for many years and have found the raw food lifestyle to be a saving grace in overcoming this self-destructive behavior.  

I am so grateful to contribute my article on an issue that so many of us struggle with. I can't wait to share with you my thoughts and tips on how to approach and overcome emotional eating naturally! 

So be sure to pick up a copy of Purely Delicious Magazine at your nearest Whole Foods store (and if your local store doesn't carry it yet, you can kindly request that they do), or you can get your subscription at www.purelydelicious.net 

Purely Delicious is a Raw Food Lifestyle Magazine - recently won BEST OF RAW 2009 Award for favorite raw food magazine!

Here's how SpaFusion cuisine differs from raw food cuisine...

Although the raw food lifestyle is by far the most natural approach to health, it’s not exactly low-fat. Raw food recipes typically call for various nuts and seeds, and often oil all in the same recipe. This can result in a very high-calorie meal.

High-calorie is not necessarily bad when consuming good quality natural fats, but it can make weight-loss more difficult for those of us who struggle with weight. So I wanted to create a program that focused on lighter meals.

The two-week SpaFusion Cleanse Program is a fusion of raw food cuisine and spa cuisine (light, fresh and simple), with a focus on food combining for lighter digestion!

Spa cuisine is traditionally a light, healthy cuisine using minimal ingredients and emphasizing specifically fresh ingredients. The cuisine highlights elegance and simplicity, so it seemed like a natural fit to raw foods!

The recipes I’ve put together use little or no oil, and most use only one fat ingredient (nut, seed, oil, avocado) per recipe to keep it light. You'll notice I use tropical fruits in many recipes. This is typical in spa cuisine, which is commonly served at spa resorts.

That's right, for two weeks you'll get to indulge in a refreshing spa-inspired cuisine! It's like having a mini-vacation right in your own kitchen! I can’t imagine a more exciting and delicious weight-loss program to slim down!

The recipes I’ve created are 100% raw, but the program itself is not exclusively 100% raw, unless you want it to be. This is your journey, feel free to leave some room for flexibility. To sign-up for the program see SpaFusion (REMIX).

I've had an amazing first day on the Summer-Ready Body Challenge! It's a refreshing 6-week cleanse a group of us are doing to slim down in time for summer! If you'd like to join along we'd love to have you... see previous post for details!

I thought I'd document my progress during the next few weeks and share my journey with you. I'll be checking in with an update every few days.

Each week we will tackle a new goal to ensure our success! The goal for this first week is to get familiar with the SpaFusion recipes, organize the kitchen, and get rid of ALL temptation foods! That's right, it's time to detox that kitchen! Make sure to stock up on lots of fresh produce once you've cleared out the fridge!

So here's what my day looked like today...

I started off with an Apple-Strawberry Green Smoothie. I typically start the day with a green juice, but I just moved... things are a bit crazy around here. Not to worry, I managed to squeeze in a green juice later in the evening. (I'm all about leaving a little room for flexibility... no hard rules in this program!)

I also enjoyed a small bowl of Sweet-Vanilla Chia Pudding, Cucumber-Avo Soup, Strawberry-Kiwi Mint Water, Kim Chi (raw, fermented) and an apple! Looking forward to more refreshing SpaFusion recipes tomorrow!
