Raw Food Gratitude

Saying Thank You: Raw Food Gratitude

I am grateful for beautiful flowers!

One of the things I learned early on in life is that an attitude of gratitude goes a long way. Sometimes it helps to say thank you to nothing in particular, and other times it helps to highlight the people that make your life better.

These are some of the delightful people I’ve been blessed to work and interact with, while bringing more raw food magick into their lives. They’re all outstanding, so check them out. :)

Emily of Hello!Self: Emily was inspired by the first free Raw Food teleclass I gave. It was so humbling to see Emily undertake a raw food trial shortly after the class too! Emily is a Life Coaching for Positive Living, you can follow Emily on twitter @HelloSelf.

Rohan of Rohan Mitchell: Rohan is a Software Engineer (not unlike myself!) living in Australia (unlike me) who shares his passion for personal development and freelancing. Rohan is into veganism, and my latest love Dance of Shiva. He mentioned giving green smoothies a try, so follow him on twitter @RohanM.

Kyeli of Freak Revolution: Kyeli is like my long lost faeriedust sprinkling sister, who also loves Buffy The Vampire Slayer. She is currently doing a rejuvenating self-care retreat while going raw, so send her lots of love and support, read her microfiction and comment, or follow her on twitter @Kyeli. You can do it Kyeli! :)

Sean of RebootSelf: Sean is an inspiration to anyone who wants to change. He has quit alcohol, smoking, and coffee. Now he’s retooling his eating plan and has started a raw food trial. Let him know what a fantastic job he’s doing and follow him on twitter @RebootSelf.

Andrea of Holistic Show: Andrea is the host of Holistic FM and she exudes a passion for helping parents make great choices. She’s a green smoothie mommy and we share a lot of common ideals. Follow her on twitter @HolisticMom.

Sigve of Sigve Alsvik: Sigve is a long time raw foodie from Norway who is a passionate multimedia musician. He’s got a great creative flair and is a wonderful person to connect with on twitter @SigveA.

Nathalie of One Peaceful World: We share the same name, and we happen to have a lot more in common than I originally thought. ;) Nathalie is a recovered lawyer into human rights, health, and living in a peaceful world. We need more lawyers like her, so follow her on twitter @NathalieMe.

Carla of Green & Chic: Carla and I met through personal development blogs, and as it turns out we both like things that are green and chic. I just wanted to commend Carla for her dedication to her health as an MS survivor, and for the incredible transformation that she’s undergone. Follow her on twitter @CarlaRose.

Now I’m passing the gratitude flowers onto you, who would you like to say thank you to? You can do so in the comments publicly, or just send an email to someone you appreciate!

Sending lots of raw magick juice your way!
Love, Nathalie

Every End Is a New Beginning…

Changes Afoot at Raw Food Switch

Those of you who have been following Raw Food Switch for awhile have seen the Raw Food Transition Carnivals.

Well, I’m kind of sad and happy to say that the Raw Food Transition Carnival is going on hiatus. I might decide to revive it at some point if there is interest, but for now consider it on vacation.

The circus folks decided to go outside, enjoy the sunshine, and forage for greens to make green smoothies. Go figure!

Flip The Raw Food Switch Teleseminar

I believe that with every end comes a new beginning. That’s why I’m so excited to announce my free teleseminar: Flip The Raw Food Switch!

  • I’m going to reveal one of the myths that most people accept when it comes to food and nutrition.
  • I’ll show you how to start your day off for raw success.
  • I’ll disclose some of the mindsets that are necessary for going raw without going crazy!
