Limited Edition DOTS Gypsy boxes!! These solid wood jewelry boxes are perfect for that travein' Gypsy Mama! Super light weight and able to hold a ton of treasures!
⟠ Since I love to travel I started looking for the perfect light weight box to hold my jewelry. About a year ago I decided to make my own as I couldn't quite find what I was looking for. I designed this sweet little box and have been oh so happy with it!  Holds the jewelry in place and never tangles. A few friends have asked me to make them one as well so I decided to do a small batch and number each box as I am about to start my travels again and wont be able to make these from the road!
Gypsy Boxes are all unique in their own way. Each box is lined with an ethnic fabric, some gathered from my travels. My beautiful partner Agustin created the spiritual artwork on the top! Perfect for travel or for fun!

⟃⟃⟃⟃⟃⟃ Raw Pizza and Durian Desert ⟄⟄⟄⟄⟄⟄

Living on Zero One community we made raw Pizzas quite often. I have been missing them like crazy.  I just bought my Mama an Excalibur Dehydrator so I thought it would be the perfect reward for her after coming off our cleanse. It turned out amazing!!!
Buckwheat crust:
4 cups soaked buckwheat (about 2 cups dried)
2 2/3 cups sunflower seeds, soaked
4 cups zucchini, peeled and roughly chopped
3/4 - 1 cup ground flax
1 1/4 cups water
1/4 cup + 1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs + 2 tsp Italian herbs
1 tbs + 1 tsp crushed garlic
1 tbs sea salt

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.  Spread batter about 1/4 " thick on 3 3/4 dehydrator trays covered with teflex sheets. Score into 9 squares per tray. Dehydrate at 125 for 2-3 hours, then flip onto mesh and turn the temperature down to 110.  Dehydrate until dry.


1 Cup Raw Macadamia nuts
1/2 Cup Raw Cashews
1/4 Cup Raw Pine nuts
1/3 Cup Fresh Squeezed Lemon juice
1 Clove Garlic, minced
3 Tbls Nutritional Yeast
1 Tsp Himalayan Salt (to taste)
 1 Tsp Cold Pressed Olive Oil (just a drizzle)
Soak 3/4 cup of the macadamia nuts and all of the cashews together in approximately 3 cups fresh, filtered water for 20 minutes.    Drain and rinse.  In a food processor, chop the remaining 1/4 cup of dry macadamia nuts and all of the pine nuts into a fine meal.  Set this aside.
Chop the soaked macadamia nuts and cashews into a fine meal and add the lemon juice, garlic and drizzle of olive oil and blend until smooth.  Add a few tablespoons of filtered water to aid in blending smooth if needed.  You’ll want to get this mixture as smooth as possible while keeping it fairly thick.  Add the dry macadamia and pinenut mixture, along with the nutritional yeast and blend until mixed well.  Season with salt to taste.
NOTE: This makes enough cheese for one pizza.  If you plan on making two full sized pizzas  I recommend doubling the above recipe.
1 Cup Sun-dried Tomatoes
6 Roma Tomatoes or 4 Large Tomatoes
1 Clove Garlic
1/4 Cup Red Onion, finely minced
1 Cup Fresh Basil Leaves
1/2 Cup Fresh Italian Parsley Leaves
Sprig of Fresh Rosemary
2 Tbls Olive Oil
1 Tbls Raw Honey
1 Tsp Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
1-2 Tsp Himalayan Sea Salt (to taste)
1/2 Tsp Chipotle or Cayenne Pepper (optional)
Soak the sun-dried tomatoes in approximately 1 Cup fresh water for 10-15 minutes or until soft.  Drain and rinse, then set aside.   Cut the tops off of the fresh tomatoes, cut in half, then scoop out the seeds.  Dice the tomatoes and set aside.
In a food processor finely chop the garlic, red onion and herbs.   Add the sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, honey, and lemon juice and pulse to chop leaving the mixture with some texture.  Do not over blend.
In a bowl fold together the sun-dried tomato mixture with the diced tomatoes.   Season with Himalayan sea salt and the chipotle or cayenne if desired. 
**  add any toppings of choice!

Clear minds, clean bodies in 2012!

Several times a year, Agustin and I do a little cleanse just as a basic body tune up. We have been mostly eating raw for about 4 years now. During my pregnancy with Naia I definitely had some pizza and burritos though. My body was calling out! Its wild what we crave during these sacred times. I gained only 20 pound with my pregnancy and it all came off within a week however, my body shifted and hasn't felt the same since. I am with Naia 23 out of 24 hours and it wasn't until recently that i started to take an hour here or there for Amy time. Last week i went for a run with my Papa and that really sparked the inner flame. I begin to love myself again in ways I hadn't since giving birth.  Its understandable as this is so common with mamas.  We love these little ones so much, all our love just pours out to them!   Ohhh it feels so good!

With the New Year here, we figured it was the perfect time to begin our first cleanse of 2012. My mom even joined us!  Usually we stick to juice cleanses along with lots of enemas, massage and saunas. Since i am still breast feeding Naia, i decided to just do a simple 6 day routine...

Day 1: Starts with a salt water flush. We drink about 2 liters of water each with 2 tsps of sea salt. This really gets things moving.  Several juices throughout the day are followed with lots of water in between. At night i like to drink some sort of detox or herbal laxative tea before bed.
Day 2:  Lots of water upon awakening then followed by a coffee enema.  Several juices throughout the day.  Night time herbal tea blend in the evening.
Day 3:   Lots of water upon awakening followed by a coffee enema.  Since this was mid point we decided to switch it up and do the master cleanse for a day.  This consists of Lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne.  We also got a colonic in the afternoon which is always amazing!!  Night time herbal tea blend in the evening.
DAY 4: Lots of water upon awakening.  morning enema to start off the day.  Back to juicing  and herbal tea at night.  We also treated ourselves to an hour massage at the spa in town.  Great for releasing those toxins.
Day 5: Last day of cleansing.  Same routine as day 2
Day 6:  One final enema except for this time we did a chlorella enema which helps to pull out the toxins.  Fresh orange juice as our first morning drink.  A while later we added some soaked figs and water to the vitamix for a simple smoothie snack.   Late afternoon agustin made us some kind of green drink.  I didn't ask what was in it but just enjoyed its savory taste.  For dinner i made us a miso soup with a mixture of seaweeds. Yum!   Such a beautiful feeling of gratitude in that first real meal!  
My weight started off at 128 and when i weighed in on the 6th day i was at 118.  Ten pounds gone and feeling so alive and vital in every way.   Our bodies are our temples.  Its crucial that they are loved up in every way possible!!!

Juices usually consist of combinations including beets, lemons, ginger,  carrots, cucumbers, green apples, kale, and celery.

sea salt and herbal teas to help it all flow!
