Foodbuzz 24×24: A Raw Retro Evening

As a Featured Publisher for Foodbuzz, I get the “in” on all of their contests.  Well, a few weeks ago I submitted a dinner party proposal to Foodbuzz for their 24×24 Contest, and TA DA! My proposal was selected!  In turn, I needed to host this dinner last night, Saturday August 27th.  So what exactly did I propose?   Ladies and Gents, I give you: A RAW RETRO EVENING As most of you know, I’ve recently moved into a new apartment in San Diego in the rawsome neighborhood of South Park.  The houses here are older and some are even

Dates and Almond Butter

  I love this simple, quick, “pick-me-up” snack!  Sometimes before a workout I’ll have a banana, but this is a great snack idea for when you are on the go or if you are running/cycling long distance and want something small but power-packed that you can take with you! What you need: Dates (medjool are my favorite) Raw Almond Butter   Simply slice the dates on one side, remove the pit, spoon in some almond butter and squeeze the date back together.  You can prepare multiple of these at a time and keep them in the refrigerator for a quick

Rawtastic Times with Philip McCluskey

Friday Favorites

~organic strawberries~ Craving something sweet?  These will definitely do the trick.  Still not enough?  Add a tablespoon of almond butter and some raw cacao nibs (the natural & raw version of chocolate chips) and you’ll be in dessert paradise. ~my new sunglasses~ Courtesy of a rockin’ shop here in South Park, San Diego.  I can’t tell you which one, because if you buy the same pair, I’ll have to kill you.  Just kidding. Get these at The Grove.  (If I haven’t already bought all of them to stop you.) ~having my own refrigerator~ Clearly, I need to go grocery shopping.

Life for Rent

Another new beginning… I’ve moved!  Again! Third time is the charm, right? I am still in the lovely glorious state of California, in San Diego but I’ve moved to another town.  Since arriving on the West Coast at the end of January, I’ve felt like I was floating.  Fresh starts and new surroundings are always exciting, but at times uneasy.  I think over the past 6 to 7 months, while I’ve definitely felt at home here with the weather and the surroundings, I’ve felt suspended…like a trapeze artist floating through San Diego.  Meeting people, getting lost, discovering new places, working, getting lost,
