99% of apple samples, 98% of peaches, and 97% of nectarines tested positive for at least one pesticide residue.

The average potato had more pesticides by weight than any other produce.

A single grape sample and a sweet bell pepper sample contained 15 pesticides.

Single samples of cherry tomatoes, nectarines, peaches, imported snap peas and strawberries showed 13 different pesticides apiece.

Lots of leafy greens also contain many pesticides

Amazing Raw Food and Juice Cleanse…UrbanRemedy.com

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

I am sitting at my computer dreaming about Urban Remedies Raw Creme Carmel…If you have never hear of this company or had their products, you have to check them out! The Brownie was also mind blowing as was all of their desserts but I’m also so impressed with their juices!

IMG_7200

I never order juice from anywhere thinking that making my own at home is always going to taste better. I’ve had juice from some of the new companies out there and they are ok…good in a pinch. But, these were so amazing! So full of flavor and I felt like they were energetically alive still! I had three different kinds and also an Almond Milk. This was better than what I make. They also have Juice Cleanse kits.

They also have some wellness kits that would make great holiday presents. Check them out at UrbanRemedy.com!

Coco-Jack

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

A Raw Food keeper that Ill be using all the time!

Coco-Jack

I just tried this new coconut opener from Coco-Jack! For those of you who shy away from opening coconuts for fear of slicing your hand off or if you just have a hard time knowing how to cut into them while saving the coconut milk from splashing all over your kitchen counters, you’ll want to check this handy little tool out!

What I really love is the perfect round hole it leaves in the top of the coconut so that you can easily scrape the meat out and you can also close them up if your not going to be using the whole coconut right away. Love the scoop for the meet also!

Ive tried a lot of coconut knives and other gadgets over the years that promised to make opening my Thai baby coconuts a breeze but they never delivered and I have always gone back to my kitchen knives and hatchets. Ive ruined a lot of knives and my hatchet is pretty intimidating for the faint of heart. It can also make a mess.

Love this! The mat and the bag are pretty cool also… you can buy just the Coco-Jack and a mallet or bundles.

Let me know how you like it if you get one!

Saturday, July 19th, 2014

This is skin food at its best!
IMG_0007

Click HERE to order or just got to the store page.

It has taken a few years to perfect this recipe but it is finally time to let the secret out that many of my private clients and students have known for a while now. I have been selling this cream at my raw food trainings, to friends and family and its now available to all of you!

This deeply nourishing skin cream is made from truly natural ingredients. It is perfect for a daily moisturizing cream (I use it every morning before putting on makeup and at night after washing my face before going to bed) and has also been used for problem and troubled skin.

Each ingredient used has been selected according to its healing properties. I have listed them below with a short description of each. This cream is made in small batches, by hand, at low temperatures so as not to destroy the healing properties of each ingredient.

This cream will last for months if you use it sparingly. A little goes a very long way. You will notice the difference in your skin within days. Use this cream for 30 days and your skin will be transformed!

Here are some testimonials:

“LOVE LOVE LOVE this cream. I feel like I have new skin! Love the texture and feel of this cream. It’s done wonders for my complexion. Thanks!”
Kerri M.

“Alissa, I bought the abundance cream from you at your certification training last year. I need more, PLEASE! When will you be making another batch of this? I began using it as just a face cream and fell in love with it. I then I decided to try it on my psoriasis. I could not believe how much this helped! I have used everything in the last 15 years to help with the psoriasis and this cream worked better than anything I’ve ever tried. I wanted to ask you when you would have more and if I could buy this in a bigger quantity?”
Much Love,
Susan P.

“Hi Alissa, Its Donna from the last training class. I bought one of your creams in class and wish I bought a few more. This is the best face cream. I’ve been using it for a couple of months now and my skin feels so smooth and soft and hydrated. Please let me know when I can order more once its up on your site for sale.
Thanks for this amazing cream!”
Donna B.

Raw Green Soup

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

Ive been making a raw green energy soup in the mornings lately instead of my raw food smoothies.
This is the one I made this morning. You can alter the spices and seasonings to your liking.
Raw Energy Soup
Kale
Collards
Swiss chard
Celery
Bock choy
Cucumber
Sunflower greens
Lime juice
Avocado
Ginger
Turmeric powder
Cayenne powder
Cumin Powder
Dulse
greens
In a blender or food processor, blend all of the ingredients except the Dulse, until smooth. Once this is blended well, add the Turmeric, Cayenne and Cumin and blend again. Pour into a large bowl and add Dulse pieces. I like using a vitamix so it comes out really smooth and creamy.
