Off to my Raw Retreat...

Ever There c L Walker

Well, I'm off on my raw retreat adventure, "Living Raw: Keeping it Balanced, Keeping it Simple" a weekend full of workshops and seminars by Victoria & Valya Boutenko.

I've got all my stuff together in a little pile in the living room... my overnight bag with a change of clothes and toiletries... my bedding... and my emergency orange, bananas, and raw carrot bread for the 'sleep-over'.

Speaking of sleep-over... I'm doing this with folks I've never met! How fun! And how unlike me! Well, I guess it must be like me somewhere deep down, cuz here I am doin' it.

I'm looking forward to it, and I will surely have a ton to share come Monday.

Oh, and the open mic tonight? It was a piece of (raw) cake not eating cooked foods once we got there... just knowing I had this thing to go to first thing in the morning made my resolve iron-clad. Before we left, I ate a beet burger and a huge baby spinach salad with cukes and tomatoes. And I brought along fruit, which I left in the van and munched on during my break. It was great!

And now, for my next trick, I'm going to bed!!

See ya Monday!

Enjoy your weekend, Rawkers!

Hi Zucchini Breath,
Thanks so much! It will take a while for all that I learned to come out! :)
I wish I'd taken photos all the way through and can only be grateful that I had the wherewithal to take one with Victoria at the end of the weekend.
There was virtually no down time! I'm usually such a loner but I was fine with this for this weekend. It had everything to do with being among others who are into the same passion. It was great! :)The Boutenko ladies are really something.
