Happy New Year!

Hello bloggies! 2010 welcomed me with one of these...
giant mug full of delicious juice (romaine, celery, cucumber, ginger, pear, tangerines, green apple, kiwi, beet, sprinkle cinnamon)... my liver thanked me for the beet after last night's shenanigans ;) It's funny how much habits can change over the course of a year - no more coffee (though I do still enjoy a cup of black, cold-pressed occasionally) or cow's milk or soy... but juice -- the greener the better (this morning I was feeling a little fruity) -- always hits the spot. Today has been filled with cheezy jalapeno red pepper kale chips from the dehydrator (they didn't want their picture taken). Not too many are left (I seem to eat giant handfuls every time I go to "check" on them ;) but they are molto tasty.

I'm looking forward to 2010 - the wedding is coming up quickly (64 days to go... not that I'm counting!), I'm doing a 30-class Bikram yoga challenge (goal is to complete 6 out of every 7 classes) beginning January 3, I'm going to start working out again, and I have tons of ... not *resolutions* per se, but things I want to do and now seems to be as good a time as any (art, exercise & yoga, meditation, pursuing raw veganism with a vengeance, more time for books & friends...)... recent events have reminded me that the moment is *now* and we are never guaranteed tomorrow - life with no regrets ;)

Go check out lilveggiepatch's blog and enter her awesome giveaway - if you haven't tried Cocont Bliss ice cream yet, it's amazing... the texture is fabulous, silky and creamy and dreamy, and the taste is phenomenal - really one of the very best (if not THE best) ice creams I have ever had. Plus, it's soy, gluten & dairy free (yay for people with allergies!), and it's fair trade... the Nake Coconut is my favorite flavor but they are all delicious. Totally delicious. Go eat some ;) Happy 2010 everyone!
