My #promise for the last day of the year 2019

My #promise for the last day of the year 2019

My promise for you my friend my sister is that I am and will give you my very best. At all times.

By the way, I really hope I can afford a juicer soon to share not only smoothies and raw recipes but also fresh juices! My eyes are on the Axis juicer.

I am here for you and you can always submit your questions, during my live streams and in between.

I will do my best to practice self care (not running myself out for others) and be of service to you because this is what gives meaning to my life.

I love you so very much my friend my sister,

Blessings,

Claire

I celebrate #spirulina being back in my cupboard with a #chocolate smoothie

I love to combine spirulina and raw cacao in a green smoothie!

This is such a delight to be back from my favorite spirulina farm in the South of France Solis Culturae with a big jar of this magical seaweed I had been waiting for such a long time!

Now that spirulina is back in my cupbaord, let’s celebrate with a gorgeous green smoothie of spirulina raw chocolate and bananas!

Lilian’s tip (see the video ” Why is #spirulina so good for us or visit of a spirulina farm“) is to combine spirulina and vitamin C to make the iron even more absorbable by the body.

My personal tip: use spirulina like crazy when you have your periods 😉

My chocolate comes from Raw Living of course.

How to make nondairy #cheese #raw #vegan recipe

How to make nondairy #cheese #raw #vegan recipe

I was born in the country of cheese and wine: France.

However, I stopped eating dairy more than a decade ago. And I became 90% raw vegan four years ago!

So let’s be creative by making a French nondairy cheese.

The cheese recipe is simple: soaked sunflower seeds at Raw Living), water, fresh turmeric and ginger, tamari or sea salt, garlic and/or a bit of onion, apple cider vinegar or lemon and chives if you have them. You can also add Irish moss or sea moss for extra creamy texture!

Personal story of #breastfeeding two babies #motherstory

Personal story of #breastfeeding two babies #motherstory

I breastfed my daughter for three years, did a bit of tandem nursing because reading the book Adventures in Tandem Nursing: Breastfeeding During Pregnancy and Beyond by Hilary Flower really inspired me then breastfed my son born premature for two beautiful years.

It was not an easy road at times. The reason I was able to do it? Support! Support from other women and information from trustful sources such as La Leche League.

Were you breastfed as a baby my friend my sister? Did you breastfeed? What helped you? No judgements nor guilt here. My wish is for women to empower other women by sharing their personal stories. Bless you my friend my sister.

The #present #moment or Montaigne and when I dance I dance

The #present #moment or Montaigne and when I dance I dance

French philosopher Montaigne wrote: “When I dance, I dance” and so on. Thich Nhat Hanh has a similar message and of course Eckhart Tolle is the author of the book The power of now. So I guess we could say being in the present moment rather than the past or the future is both timeless and difficult because we always need the reminder my friend my sister!

Also, I love this drawing by Charlie Mackesy, so cute and right to the point for today!

I am testing Patricia’s #salad #dressing recipe with ginger and #tahini

Patricia is a great woman from our beautiful community and she recently shared a recipe during a live stream that I promised I would try!

This is so very good my friend my sister and you don’t need a blender.

Simply mix one tablespoon of tahini (sesame paste) with the same amout of tamari (fermented soy sauce) with finely grated ginger root.

Add water to obtain the desired consistency and enjoy!

I dipped apple slices in this salad dressing… heaven! Will you try it my friend my sister?

Thank you Anne-Marie from the youtube channel #CrudiVegan #rawvegan and #healthy

Thank you Anne-Marie from the youtube channel #CrudiVegan #rawvegan and #healthy

Anne -Marie is a fantastic woman who runs a great informative youtube channel called CrudiVegan (in French).

What I admire about her is her beautiful smile and energy of course but also the fact that she is inspired by the book The 80/10/10 Diet: Balancing Your Health, Your Weight, and Your Life, One Luscious Bite at a Time while really applying it.

What I mean is, she does not only eat delicious fruits but also a lot of greens!

She may not share all of my ideas and beliefs (for instance on intermittent fasting) but this is very good as it is! We don’t need to fully agree with someone to respect and admire them!

Lastly, I love how she very warmly recommend to all women to make themselves a priority.

Thank you Anne-Marie and lots of success for your creative channel!

Shall I do #enemas or not? deep colon cleansing

Shall I do #enemas or not? deep colon cleansing

I love Markus Rothkranz and he is a big advocate of enemas because it helps the body get rid of toxins faster, see the video “Cleanse Tips for weight loss and healing- what not to overlook, by Markus Rothkranz, Cara Brotman“.

On the other hand, some people say that during a fast, an enema is going to move the focus of the body towards the intestines, while it was taking care of another area for instance. See the French naturopath Fabien Moine about why he does not recommend enemas during a fast (in French).

So… enemas or not?

I discovered enemas and colonics over ten years ago and they changed my life. Now I found a middle ground: I do enemas on an empty stomach on the days I eat and on the one day of the week when I fast, I just rest. And you my friend my sister?

PS: the enema bucket I use is in stainless steel.

Is #food that important? raw vegan carnivore and so on?

Is #food that important? raw vegan carnivore and so on?

Someone I know is a big fan of the keto diet but I am worried because they are not eating any fruit at all anymore.

I am always screaming my love for raw vegan food and how it changed my life.

However at the end of the day I personally feels that what matters the most is people.

The best thing in life is enjoying healthy relationships with people. Food comes second. What do you think my friend my sister?
