As April's Shine (30 mails in 30 days Detox program) was over, I gave myself a little tiny holiday..
..That I have spent doing whatever V wanted, pretty much.
You may have guessed it.. We watched Marvel's superhero movies over and over again while eating the first water melons of the season.. Yum, from Marocco, one of the few non-local staple food in our family..
But don't let me digress as there is a lot to cover today.. :-)
Today is the last Shine Café of the season.. In June, July and August there won't be any Shine Cafés and I am not really sure whether and when I will hold a Shine Cafe again.. Things are shifting lots in the Shining Mama's World (you'll hear more about it later) and I am planning to do more thngs online.. On the other hand, I love having you guys in my living room! Watching inspiring movies together and eating yummy raw shiny treats is always good so Shine Cafe might stay in the program after September.
Today we'll watch the movie the Connection: Mind your body. As usual we start around 14:00 with a raw buffet. I have prepared a new recipe for water kefir that is awesome! and some other really yummy treats.
The movie starts at 15:00 and is 74 min long.
Shining Mama @Leefmarkt
On May 16th Shining Mama will have a stand at the market Leefmarkt, (translated would be something like Live!-Market).
I will have lots and lots of Shiny Boxes with raw chocolate and some other raw shiny yummy surprises - like raw cakes and tarts.
Come if you are in The Hague, it will be fun.
Raw Food brings the energy of the sun in your body: a beautiful article about Shining Mama in a national Dutch newspaper (Metro)
It was wonderful to have Ellen Mannens and Floris Sheplitz visiting me one Friday afternoon two weeks ago.
It was more than "gezellig", how the Dutch say it, it was so nice that we forgot the time and got lost in stories.. (not only mine!) :-)
..Until I asked how much time we have left and Floris said, uhm, we have one more half hour of light to make the pictures so you'd better hurry up with that salad :-)
Thank you, Ellen and Floris!
The pictures are very beautiful - and masterful, if you'd know that V was in absolutely no mood for pictures!.
Ellen Mannens managed to magically turn my looooong innuendo story into a beautifully written concise article.
A translation in English of her Dutch words is of course in order so here it goes (it is in some places a "free" translation as I have added a few explanatory things):
Raw Food brings the energy of the sun in your body
There really isn't anything that makes me more forget more about the world than creating stuff.
Case in point, last Saturday Victor was away for the day with his best friend Cas and I was home alone.
And it was then that it happened:

I write about what makes me feel alive and shining: my work, art, love of life, sun, the sea, essential oils, my son, raw food and green smoothies.
