photo cred Cat We had a wonderful class last night with a spectacular bunch of ladies. The Goods hosted a raw Mexican Fiesta class based on the recipes of the famous and fabulous Elaina Love (through whom all of this was made possible). It was such a pleasure cooking and teaching these lovely ladies. The class was set up by Nadine for her friends. When one friend was told about the upcoming class the reaction was this " What that f***? Raw Mexican?". Needless to say, she was one of our more enthusiastic participants. The food was next level. Talk about guilt-free second helpings. The biggest takeaway from the night was that it's all about adding to your diet not taking away. Add that smoothie, add those gorgeous local fruits and veggies and the rest will follow. Trust me. Check out more of Elaina's easy, delicious and so damn good for you recipes on our blog like this and this.

nosugartonight I've been hearing a lot of people wanting to eliminate sugar from their diets as an attempt to get healthy.  I applaud all of you and trust me when I say this, you'll find new energy, your mind will be clearer and generally you'll feel happier and healthier.  But I'm also going to be perfectly honest with you right now.  I ate 4 mini chocolates today. It wasn't a brilliant move on my part as 10 mins later I felt like I wanted to go to sleep under my desk, but it happened and I'm not going to beat myself up for it OR give up on the rest of my day. The great thing about eliminating crap from your diet is that you get such a buzz from clean eating that consuming anything else, pales in comparison. What a great place to be right? So as you're thinking about what to have for dinner tonight. Go healthy and give it up sugar. Sugar is soooooooo yesterday.
