Back on Track

I'm back!

And with big news! I bought a juicer! Eep!

I knew exactly which juicer I wanted, I'd done the research, scoped around for the best price and made the decision. And then...nothing. Places were either out of stock or not getting back to me. And then completely by chance (luck? design?) I found one listed for sale on my local Raw Food Meetup messageboard. Yes please! Less than twelve hours later, it was mine!

If you look closely you can see (a very excited!) me reflected in the glass.


Current favourite combination: broccoli, cucumber, spinach, orange, pineapple and ginger.

Now that school is over I've been spending a lot of time with different things to get me back on track. Spending time by myself is nothing new for me, but the concept of spending time on myself is something new. Over the last week I've seen my osteopath and naturopath and embarked on a six week detox (hello juicer!).

I also had my first experience with kinesiology. Again this was something that just fell into place at the right time. It was, in a word, confronting. On a few different levels. Not knowing much (read: anything) about the therapy before the session I had no idea what to expect and to be honest, now that it's done I'm not quite sure what just happened. I do however have a feeling that it can, and will, help me move past a lot of the things that are holding me back.

So while my internal world has been getting a tune up, my external world has been far from neglected. I finally made the time to catch up with these lovely ladies and have made many more plans for the near future. Long walks in the park, a decadent raw dessert day and an upcoming craft market to name a few. There have been a few dinners around town and with a little help from a borrowed copy of this I have reignited my passion for creating in the kitchen. So all in all things are looking up. It's amazing what a difference a week can make.

This week my plans are to finally get around to cleaning out my wardrobe, the pantry and the kitchen to make room for my new little friend and to get back on track with the Raw Food Rehab initiative which has somewhat fallen by the wayside. And to take more photos!

After far too long of feeling like crap things are finally falling into place for me. Happy coincidences have been following me around for the last week or so and I have a good feeling they're here to stay.


  1. Omg the juice is so greeeeen. I love it. I was so inspired by your concoction that I just added brocolli to my juice tonight too. Yummo!

    Im v excited to hear more about your kinesiology sesh and glad to hear your inner tune up is well on track. You rock girl xxx

  2. Which juuicer did you go for? I LOVE my juicer and use it everyday!

    Sounds like things are really going well for you and like Connie, I would love to hear more about your kinesiology, its something that has been recommended to me but I've not tried it yet.

    Look forward to hearing more and seeing the kitchen creations you've got planned! xxx

  3. I got the Oscar 930 (aka Hurom) at a bargain price! It was love at first juice!

    I've got another kinesiology session booked in for after work today, so will definitely share my thoughts on it once I've had time to digest it all.

    I've been sick for the last couple of days, so so far the only thing to come out of my kitchen was a batch of chocolate avocado mousse. I used my limited energy wisely :)
