How YOU are a seed, a recipe and my final post.....


I can’t believe how fast the last 6 months have flown by! It seems like yesterday that I began writing for We Like It Raw! This past 6 months have been so rewarding and so growth filled for me! I have stretched myself so much. I have met and connected with so many awesome people. I have gotten to interview some very interesting and inspiring people doing amazing things!

Alas, It’s now time for me to be off to new adventures! I am also very excited for what the website has in store for it’s growth adventure of it’s own!

I am so filled with gratitude for all of you who have sent me the sweetest emails thanking me, or commenting or even letting me know I had spelling mishaps in my article! I truly love connecting, communicating and knowing that something I’ve written has inspired, helped or touched someone. I consider you all my family, my TRIBE! I will miss you all and writing here very much. However, I will now be focusing on my own blog on my website http://www.pureblisshealth.com and you can always connect with me there. 

This song by John Denver is one of my favorites (and it’s a cute video) but it is MY song to YOU. Each one of you is a gift. We all have a miracle within us waiting to be expressed. You have allowed me to express my heart, You have ALL been a gift to ME. 




So, what am  off to do?

I’m so excited! I have so many things going on right now!! The Raw Food Community here in Utah is really active and thriving and I am getting more involved in it. I am also kick starting my Holistic Health Counseling business with a focus on raw and cooked vegan food. 

I am working on my second eBook with several more outlined and on the way. My first was The Avocado Smoothie Book  http://www.womengoraw.com/2011/10/19/avocado-smoothie-with-21-day-power-plan/ I co wrote with Dr Ariel Policano, NMD. The next book will be out in June and JUST in time for Summertime Parties (hint hint) ;) 

I am also now offering Raw Food Personal Chef Services as well as Raw Food for pick up (coming soon)in the Salt Lake area. I specialize in raw desserts and offer single servings as well as full size cheesecakes, pies and a huge variety of specialty desserts. I offer “normal” raw food too such as juices, smoothies, entrees, crackers, kale chips, soups and salads.


"Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it."

I am looking for a partner to do retreats in the Utah area also. If you are into health, raw food, yoga, self improvement and outdoor adventures, are dedicated to helping others on the journey AND someone who is organized, dedicated and reliable, please message me for the details. 

I will also be doing massage therapy and spa treatments in and around Salt Lake City, Utah. For info on any of these services please send a message to Sagestar@aol.com

Also, see my website for these services, classes, articles, recipes and health counseling services. http://www.Pureblisshealth.com


A time to shift!

This is a time of shifting, moving forward, tuning in, growth and new beginnings. We are on the edge of major transitions on our planet. Awesome things are happening! Are YOU following your highest call? Your highest desire? Your biggest passion? 

It takes courage to follow your truest path. As Brian talks about in this video, “It takes a conscious choice to live your most authentic expressed life” For us it takes a conscious commitment and finding our center. I encourage you take ten and watch this awesome video of Brians. 





For many people on the planet right now, at least many that I know, people are really feeling the shift. They feel that pull to create a bigger vision for their lives. To create a powerful and fully expressed life filled with passion and purpose. If this is you, the time is now. It’s time to find your own path and do that thing that needs to be done. That thing that only YOU can do! The world is waiting for you. 


 "The ultimate wisdom which deals with beginnings, remains locked in a seed. There it lies, the simplest fact of the universe and at the same time the one which calls faith rather than reason."

~Hal Borland~


You are a seed!

Seeds for me are sacred and filled with the ultimate mystery. Each and every seed has a purpose which it was born with and never strays from. It is on a divine mission. 

It waits for the right time to launch the mission. It needs soil, water and nutrients. It seeks them out. The Universe seems to conspire with the seed to create a perfect time and place for the mission to happen.  

Such it is also with us. We are seeds. We were born with a divine mission inside us. We wait for proper cultivation to launch our mission. As Human Beings however, we sometimes fall into patterns of fear and doubt, of complacency and uncomfortable comfort. We fail to see how the Universe is conspiring around US to help us launch OUR Divine missions.  

What is YOUR Divine Mission? Look around. If you chose to live a fully expressed life, filled with passion and purpose, what would it be? How would it benefit people? Look for the mysterious ways the Universe is conspiring around you to launch it! The world is waiting for your mission to launch! 

(Don’t forget what happens to the seed that is unsuccessful at launching it’s mission. It dies and rots away.) 


As a teaser for my NEW eBook coming out in June I’m leaving you with a recipe from the book!

Raspberry Pomegranate Ice Cream 


  • 1 1/2 cup cashews, soaked
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1 1/2 cups raspberries
  • 1/2 cup honey or agave
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon lecithin
  • 3 tablespoons coconut butter or oil  

For garnish, fresh or frozen raspberries and a mint leaf.

Add all ingredients to a blender, preferably a high speed blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Transfer to either an ice cream maker and follow directions or a container and pop into the freezer. Stir a few times the first hour. To serve, unthaw  for 10-15 minutes and scoop out. Enjoy! 

I will miss you all very much. This has been an incredible journey for me. Thank you for sharing it with me! MUAH! 

In love and health,
