I love Shopping!

Especially when it involves raw chocolate and new tankies!

I ordered from Alissa Cohen’s Raw Food Store, and as usual, the package arrived in record time! I can’t wait to start non-baking with the raw coconut and coconut butter, and of course, I have already been enjoying the peppermint truffles!

I can’t wait to wear my new tankie. Of course, if this "deep freeze" doesn’t end soon, I just might have to wear it around the house as jammies for awhile! The next time I order from Alissa Cohen’s Raw Food Store, I just might sneak a Tote Bag in. There is a cute picture of Heathy with her Cherry Tote in this post (maybe if I get the tote, the trip to Bahamas will follow!)

I absolutely love Alissa’s book. It was one of the first things I bought on my raw journey, and highly recommend it. My friend Elizabeth also recommends Victoria Boutenko’s "12-Steps to Raw Foods". I think I will have to add that one to my "book wish list" for the next time Chris and I go to Chapters. I keep imagining a big bookshelf in my new kitchen for all the Raw Food Books that I am enjoying so much! I know that is a dream that I can soon make a reality.

Well, I guess I’m not the "fooling around" type. I missed the perfect opportunity yesterday and didn’t pull any April Fool’s Jokes. I liked Shannon’s, but I especially liked all the responses to her "Oops"! I even fell victim to a few April Fool’s jokes myself. Next year I will be better prepared.

I had such an aha moment when I saw that picture! I just love that tank-top, but my first thought was "I can't wear a tank top". That is certainly true now, but for the first time it dawned on me that one day I will be able to wear a tank top. If I keep on working hard, eating live foods and treating my body with love and respect, my body will be toned and healthy and I could wear a tank top! And that one is definitely on my list! It's absolutely gorgeous!

Hanlie, you are such a beautiful person inside and out! I know you will look wonderful in this tankie! You are such an inspiration! Love your blog!

The tank is cute. It is motivation to stick to this way of eating.

Sorry about the April Fool's prank. I was surprised to see that only one person questioned it out of about a dozen comments.

Shannon, don't apologize, I LOVED the April Fools Day, it was perfect!

I'm still waiting for the RAWDORABLE tankies!
