A Happy Friday Giveaway!

Nothing says TGIF like a giveaway! To help you celebrate this Friday, I'm giving away a $50 gift certificate to CSN Stores! With over 200 online stores to choose from, you can find everything and anything from dinnerware to awesome wall decals - I'm a sucker for a good wall decal - to portable planetarium projectors.

Here are some things from their stores that I particularly fell in love with (all under $50!!):
Starting at top left: WallCandy Arts Deerly Beloved Removable Wall Decals, ferm LIVING Mr. Robot Pillow, Banana Boys Set of Three Bottle Stoppers by Stefano Giovannoni for Alessi, ferm LIVING Small Stem Bowl, Alessi Mediterraneo Kitchen Jar Collection, notneutral City on a Plate Set, OWI Robots Solar Peppy Orangutan Kit, Zevro Wall-Mount Magnetic Spice Rack 12 Piece Set, Hadaki 15.4' Eva Laptop Case.

So many amazing things! I want them all! ...But especially that coral jar or the city on the plates - even just Berlin will do! Or the stem bowl! Definitely my top three. ...And the wall decals and Mr. Robot pillow...Top five...

How to enter
There are many ways to enter and you can get up to five entries:
1. stop by one of CSN Store's 200 websites and leave me a comment telling me what you'd spend the $50 on;
2. become a follower of my blog;
3. blog about the giveaway;
4. post the giveaway on twitter; and/or
5. post the giveaway on facebook.

Just leave me a comment telling me what you did so I know how many entries to give you. And if you're already a follower of my blog, leave a comment saying so so that I can count you for the extra entry.

And please make sure that I will be able to easily contact you when you win!! I'm cool with doing a bit of internet creeping to have to find an email address, but when I'm googling your blogger profile name with the name of your dog you mentioned in a comment on a long-ago post...well, I start to feel a bit too creepy.

The giveaway will be open until 9pm October 10, 2010.

Please note: This contest is open to US and Canadian readers only, as CSN Stores only ship to these two countries. Sorry!

Good luck everyone!!

Raw vegan meal plan (Day 2) and raw vegan tacos (or, my new obsession)

I'm building my meal plan to allow for leftovers, because in any meal plan, really, leftovers are kind of needed to get by timewise.

A note on raw eating...I am trying to achieve a high raw lifestyle, meaning that 90-95% of what I'm eating is raw. However, when it comes to spices and oils and tamari, I am often not opting for the raw versions. For spices and oils, this is a matter of accessibility (other than coconut oil, which is easy and inexpensive to acquire); although I am going to try to find and use more whole versions of the spices (like the tumeric root and cardamon pods, for instance), it will still be very hard to determine whether these are raw. For tamari, this is because nama shoyu (the raw version) contains gluten, which I am allergic to. Now, you could go with bragg's soy sauce-like product, but I don't use enough o…

I already toted the many amazing benefits of sesame seeds here so we'll skip that part in this post and go straight to the awesomeness that is tahini.

Raw tahini is delightfully easy, and inexpensive, to make. And you can do such awesome things with it! I personally love using tahini as salad dressing. And when I discovered you could make a delicious cheese sauce with it...!! You can't really tell from the photo, but this makes a deliciously creamy and cheesy sauce that you can use on zucchini linguine, or for kale chips, or really just about anywhere that cheesy goodness could go (which is pretty much anywhere). The cheesy tahini broccoli is my version of Julie Morris's awesome recipe. While you're there check out her other recipes, yum they sure do look good!

Ok, it's been a great great weekend for many reasons: went to an amazing clothing swap put on by V. A. S. T., went to my adorable niece's birthday party, attended a wonderful raw potluck (yum!!), and went to my uncle and dad's joint bday lunch at my uncle's place. And to make everything even better, there were amazing people and conversations throughout it all!

So that part has been great. Of course, all the family get togethers mean that I haven't been eating as raw as I normally do. And I'm really noticing how much better my body does when I'm eating mostly raw. I feel much more grossly full and sluggish on cooked foods. And my throat is burning as it's giving me some serious acid reflux issues. I've also been on this stupid cleanse (I bought it a long time ago and figured I had better use it …
