Travel Size Chocolate Bliss Recipe 1

When we travel to hotels we usually make smaller, “daily” batches of Chocolate Bliss.  We have found that an 18 ounce thermos full of Bliss (and ice) will keep one person satisfied and energized for a full-on day of workshops and events (we have successfully proven this in several situations). Here’s how we make this smaller travel size portion of Chocolate Bliss: Bring a small portable blender, like this Hamilton Beach blender we use.  (If you’re taking your blender in a carry-on bag, make sure the blade is NOT removable from the container.  Sometimes they check and confiscate it if […]

Levitation Lemonade

My friend Courtney Clay came up with this super hydrating, nourishing, yummy tasting lemonade that’s quick to make and easy to customize to your desired tastes and nutrient requirements.  She calls it Levitation Lemonade.  I didn’t ask her why – I was too busy levitating. This lemonade has been a life saver for us in the over 100 degree heat we get during Texas summers, after workouts, after sweating at my favorite Korean spa, and especially when we were camping and hiking at high altitudes in Colorado this summer. In the past I’ve gotten altitude sickness very easily (in Colorado […]

Sunshine in a glass! Juiced 3 oranges and 3 carrots for about 2 cups of juice Blended that juice with about 1-2 Tbsp Bee Pollen, 1-2 Tbsp Hemp Seeds and about 1 inch of ginger (peel off the brown skin) I’m estimating the amounts of bee pollen and hemp seeds because I really just dumped some in there.  I tend to […]

You can find Kombucha in the stores (Synergy brand is common) for upwards of $3.50 for a 16 ounce bottle.  Or you can make your own for cheap! Here are […]
