When it rains, it pours, and superfoods save the day

Have you ever been confronted with wondering if things happen for a reason? When it’s a dark moment and you can’t imagine it getting much worse .. can goji berries really make you happy?

When it rains, it pours, really downpours. That’s a wrap-up of the last few weeks. Will superfoods save the day? If life gets out of control, do superfoods make a difference and bring you (and all your problems) back into balance? Goji berries, maca, acai, greens, raw chocolate? I certainly can’t fathom what it would be like to be under these circumstances and not be eating the way I am: full of fresh, live, organic, goodness and lots of supercharged superfoods. They strengthen my resilience and allow dilemmas to be more manageable, although I must admit the storms of life are still present. Does that sound crazy? Well, who is more likely to resort to emotional eating, overeating, and falling back into the trap of eating heavy, cooked, ‘comfort’ foods – the nutritionally depleted, adrenal exhausted, nervous wreck, or the raw superfood fueled, powered and energized, super-woman?

Here’s a shortened version of the current scenario. I woke up a couple days after leaving Sedona to a complete nightmare. I came to understand that my entire website was down, deleted, gone – where was it? No content was on the site, just a blank white page with some short coding about text not being found. And, to make matters even better, I was on the road driving back home to Seattle with varied cell reception from the Mojave Desert to Mount Shasta – thereby making it extremely difficult to deal with via phone (and can’t do it on a laptop that has multiple viruses and the internet is shot), although critically urgent (feel like my world is ending kind of urgency). Remember this exact fear I had of this happening when I was transferring hosting companies weeks ago (what would I do if my website were all of a sudden gone – is that even possible – yes, it is, I am here to demonstrate this for you)? Yes, believe me, I’ve already thought, did I bring this on myself? Am I applying the Law of Attraction that well in my life? I’ve always had to learn lessons ‘the hard way’. NEVER the easy way – that’s just not my life plan. Oh, and not to mention, my website traffic has soared as a result of Raw Spirit, which is AMAZING, but only when you have a live working website for your potential and current customers to view!

Several days ago, I woke up to this issue happening AGAIN. How could this be? It is some horrible practical joke that went awry? After completely re-securing my site and database… we/they still have no idea how it occurred in the first place. My computer/tech team tell me they’ve never seen this in all the years they have been doing what their doing. That made me feel fabulous. My answer then, seeing as though I am getting no assistance from them, is to do it all myself – completely redesign and recreate an entire new website – in a matter of days on my own. But how do I do that without the content from the previous site? There are sooo many information-filled pages… (sniff, sniff). It feels quite overwhelming and it’s been somewhat challenging at times to stay positive. My ‘previous’ site took months to build and once it went live, I slaved over it for several more months so it would give the essence of healing when you arrived. Believe me, it’s been devastating, and there’s really no better word to describe it than that.

I am one of those people that believes things happen for a reason. There is a silver lining: I’ve been wanting to make some changes to my site but have been having difficulties with accessing to do so, and therefore outsourcing work to a ‘professional’ who could do it for me (needless waste of $$$). As an entrepreneur, especially as a woman, we want to do everything all on our own, because really, who is going to do it better, or at least exactly how you want and need it to get done? Now, I will have complete control of my site, editing, designing, … and everything else from start to finish – and I can do it without sending detailed emails back and forth to someone who has no idea of what I’m trying to embody.

I want to emphasize the power of food and its’ effects on attitude and perspective. These few weeks have brought on stress that would make the Standard American come close to giving up in one way or another. Powered by superfoods and live foods, I’ve become more of a bull-dozer, knocking obstacles out of the way. Live foods now equal hope for me, whereas I had not really made this connection much before. That is something to really think about.

To look at the bright side of things, I want to share with you a recipe that got pulled together quite randomly and is now an evening staple!

everything is raw and organic with no official measurements:

few handfuls of sunflower seeds
hemp seeds (couple tbsp or so)
squeeze of lemon
small chunk of fresh ginger
clove of garlic
few pieces of dulse
nama shoyu
nutritional yeast
little water – just enough to get the processor moving and mixing into a creamy pate

Add a red pepper for flavor

Mix in food processor until it’s well-blended. Spread with Lydia’s Organics green crackers, in romaine lettuce boats, nori rolls, collard wraps and as a dip with fresh market veggies. Delicious!
