As usual, it’s been a crazy, busy, tiring, amazing and inspiring week around here. I haven’t talked about it much on video or on Facebook, but we’ve lost a couple more chickens to predators. Making the transition to real country living has been a challenging and sometimes heartbreaking ordeal. Luckily, I have the awesome Mr. Borucki as my partner-in-farming, and he is taking charge of the situation by building a brand new enclosure for our girls.

I’ve also been hard at work on new video projects, including a special workout for StyleMeFit. I’ve been part of the network for a couple months now, and I’m so excited to be in a group with such amazing fitness YouTubers. My friend in real life and fellow StyleMeFit member, Cassey Ho, sent me one of her brand new tanks and I’m wearing it in the video. “TRAIN INSANE or remain the same” is printed on the front… how kickass is THAT?!

But the best part of my weekend was getting to visit my BYFF (best yogi friend forever), Yulady, for the first time since she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is still recovering from her double mastectomy, but is the same ray of sunshine and total riot that she was before. Thanks to all of you who have sent thoughts and prayers and love notes for Yulady. I brought her a little present (I’m terrible at wrapping, but great at decorating envelopes). See more from us after this week’s recipe video!
I think the twine is pretty epic ;)
So now that I told you about a whole bunch of stuff that has absolutely NOTHING to do with raw vegan recipes for detoxing, here’s my newest video with Mike Perrine. We’re changing it up and bringing you some dessert sweetness that you’re going to LOVE! We love your feedback, so keep it coming in the comments section. Enjoy!

add some sweetness and make lemonade.
