Hey there, Journal & Friends!
Along with getting "lighter" physically, I am still slowly working on getting rid of stuff I don't use anymore, to "lighten" my home. :-)
So... another GiveAway!
First, here's how it'll work:
If you would like it, just drop a comment telling me YES, you would like it... simple as that.
You won't be automatically put into the drawing unless you tell me Yes, you would like to be included. I remember lots of times I've read blog giveaway posts where I'd loved to have left a comment, but that would have automatically entered me for something I didn't really want! So... I'm doing the opposite.
You have to enter the drawing by saying YES. Got it?? ;-)
Joey will choose the winner... I'll put all names (assuming anyone is still reading my sparse postings, LOL!) on slips of paper, throw them on the floor, and the paper Joey attacks will be the winner!
1) Leave a comment saying Yes, I'd like to be entered.
2) Make sure your email addy is available (if clicking on your user name leads to that info, that's fine) so I can get a mailing addy from you, should Joey pick you.
3) Deadline is Thursday evening, Sept 2nd, 9pm Pacific Time. That's midnight for you folks on the stormy east coast... anywhere else, you're on your own. ;-)
4) The drawing will be held Friday, Sept 3rd by Joey, and I'll mail it out as soon as I can get to the post office after that.
Oh, what is it?? Why, it's a COOKBOOK!
Raw Food Made Easy,
for 1 or 2 People,
by Jennifer Cornbleet.
I bought it a few years ago when trying yet another approach to weight loss. Found out I am NOT cut out to be a vegan or vegetarian... I love me some meat! I am definitely an omnivore. :-) But some of you thrive on that approach, so you might like it, or at least like to include the dishes in your own approach.
Here is what is written about it:
Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People is a recipe book by raw food chef Jennifer Cornbleet. The best-selling book was published in 2005 and promotes the raw food diet, a dietary movement that encourages the consumption of uncooked foods to obtain maximum health benefits.
The book features 115 recipes, including 21 breakfast recipes, 64 lunch and dinner recipes and 30 dessert recipes. Each recipe yields servings for one or two people. All the recipes in this book are vegan, and exclude the use of meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products, focusing entirely on fruits, vegetables, and nuts and seeds.
And here's some pics from inside the book:
Granola with Almond Milk, Berry Smoothie
Chocolate Mousse Parfait with Cashew Cream
Zucchini Pasta Marinara with Not Meat Balls
Flourless Chocolate Cake
Stuffed Mushroom, Mediterranean Kale, Carrots with Moroccan Spices
Tropical Fruit Tart
