Guess whose lecture I attended last night? I’ll give you a hint: it was entitled Crazy Sexy Miracles.
That’s right. Danielle and I were two very lucky ladies; we went to see Kris Carr and Gabby Bernstein talk about their books (Kris’s Crazy Sexy Diet made a pretty big impact on me), health and happiness, and their perspectives on living fully. The night was overflowing with powerful words of wisdom, and I left feeling pretty pumped to take my well living to the next level.
Kris’s sense of humor was amazing, and she gave lots of tips for living what she calls a “prevention is hot” lifestyle, including reducing the consumption of fear-based foods (animal products, sugar) and increasing that of love-based foods (veggies). I loved this gem from her: “Broccoli is not radical; surgery is radical.”
On that note, I’ve eaten a few pretty great (and love-based) meals over the last few days. Before last night’s lecture, I had this gargantuan salad from the Whole Foods salad bar:
(There are roasted brussels sprouts, beets, and sweet potatoes hiding under there!)
Today I stopped into Birdbath Bakery after a fantastic midday yoga class and picked up this beauty:
A thumbprint cookie, comprised of their homemade granola and agave, with some extra gooey preserves in the middle. So good.
I also tried kombucha for the first time! I have been wanting to try this for years but have mostly been too lazy. Kombucha Brooklyn seems like such an awesome company, though, that I was finally motivated to go out and get one. I got the original flavor, and I absolutely loved it. Might be hooked.
I’m thinking a dinner project is just the thing for this rainy/snowy evening. Please spring, come soon, thank you.
