Raw, Raw, Raw by mary elizabeth

best of raw

Have you ever won anything?  I’m trying to think if I have, and I’m not coming up with anything.  I’d like to say I won the Living Light employee valentine haiku contest last year but I didn’t.  Kate did.  Anyhow, guess what?  Living Light won “Best Culinary Arts Training” in the Best of Raw Awards [...]

50 by mary elizabeth

So – in about a month I’ll be turning fifty.  FIFTY.  I mean, it’s no big deal, and just a number, and you’re only as old as you feel, blah, blah, blah.  I get all that.  But – if fifty is indeed the possible midpoint, then I could conceivably have as much to do as [...]

Almost Xmas by mary elizabeth

Today it's officially winter and the winter holidays are upon us. I’m actually feeling kind of excited about Christmas being so close.  At least I am right now.  This morning I was feeling quite differently.  Sometimes it just seems like there’s so much pressure and so much to do.  Anyway, my morning got off to [...]

Benefits by mary elizabeth

I think I finally have my holiday plans in order, and more importantly, I feel good about them, too.  For whatever reason, I allow myself to get stressed out about what we’re going to do when and with whom and I want it all sorted right now!  Sometimes, the need to get it all sorted [...]

Giving Thanks? by mary elizabeth

Can Thanksgiving really be just a week from today?  Come on.  That’s crazy talk.  Fortunately, each year I do the very same thing so I needn’t come up with any plans and fortunately again, my annual plans include Thanksgiving dinner at a pretty posh country club so I really don’t have to plan, let alone [...]

The Coveted Golden Spoon by mary elizabeth

 Last Friday, Living Light participated in the Fort Bragg Food Bank’s first annual soup and chili cook off.  And guess what?  We won!!  Our Corn and Sweet Potato Chowder beat all others – quite the vegan victory, if you ask me.  We were up against some local heavy hitters, too.  I’m so proud of Joe [...]

Halloween Plus One by mary elizabeth

Halloween is next week and I just love Halloween!  A couple years ago I wrote about it being the second largest commercial holiday here in the good old U.S. of A. and I think that’s great.  I mean, there aren’t any gifts involved or anything – it’s just decorating and dressing up and candy, candy, [...]

Fasting Again by mary elizabeth

I am on the last day of a five day juice fast.  I’m really glad it’s the last day, but also really glad I did it.  Remember the last one?  This was nothing in comparison, but still significant and so worth while.  I feel great.  And fasting is sort of a spiritual fast forward – [...]

Pumpkin Flavored Temptation by mary elizabeth

So – I always say that “the holidays” start at Halloween and go to Valentines Day.  At least as far as tempting foods are concerned.  But that was a bit off. The tempting foods are already here and I am not doing all that well at resisting.  First of all, everything – EVERYTHING – is [...]

Home Sweet Home by mary elizabeth

I'm back in Fort Bragg.  I'm back in the fog by the Pacific Ocean.  I'm back home.  I had a wonderful month off, but it sure feels good to be home.  I'm so looking forward to meeting the students at Living Light and seeing all my beloved co-workers again.  A friend asked me if I [...]
