So many things!

I didn't know what to title this blog, too many topics! :)

I'm a midwest girl and I'm missing my dairy! I've been officially 98% raw food only for 8 days now and was just thinking, man I'd like some ice cream or cheese, but I don't want to make it! Well, I got this in my email:

*Grezzo uses organic raw agave as our sweetener which is a natural raw sweetener made from cactus. It is low in the glycemic index and is acceptable for diabetics and other sugar-sensitive individuals. Organic raw agave allows us to create a raw vegan ice cream that is low in sugar and truly healthy!
Grezzo's Raw Vegan Cheese
Please see shipping info below
Grezzo raw vegan cheese is dairy-free and soy-free. There are no processed sugars or chemicals and no preservatives or fillers of any kind!
Our house-cultured cheese is triple-whipped, creamy and spreadable. You can use these cheeses as a spread for crackers and veggies, a filling for vegetables or in your favorite recipes. These are the same cheeses that we use here at Grezzo for our famous Heirloom Tomato Ravioli, Land and Sea and many other dishes including our signature House Salad. We culture these cheeses for 5 days and take great care in making them resemble a boursin style cheese in taste and texture.
(We make your cheese to order and then freeze it overnight before sending it to you. We only freeze this cheese in order to be able to extend its shelf life during shipping. We want your cheese to be as fresh as possible when it arrives to you!)
Our Cheese is 100% Raw and Vegan

All of our herbs are fresh, no dried, and supplied daily from our specialty growers and farmers. We also use whole spices and grind them as needed. We do not use extracts or processed powders.

**The Miso Cashew Cheese is our one product that does contain wheat from nama shoyu. Gluten sensitive people can often tolerate nama shoyu since the wheat that is used in making this product is sprouted.
SHIPPING
Our raw & living ice creams and cheese are shipped in EPS Styrofoam containers (which are recyclable!). They are kept cool using blocks of dry ice and are shipped 2nd day to ensure that they arrive frozen and fresh.
Due to the complexity of shipping, the minimum order is four pints of either ice cream, cheese or a combination.
There is a live person available to take your order 6 days a week (excluding Mondays) from 10am to 4pm, for shipping Wednesday. You may also leave a message after these hours and we will call you back to confirm the order. We ship out all orders on Wednesday, 2nd day air, so you can receive your order by Friday (there is enough dry ice in the packaging to last 48 hours). Overnight shipping is also available.
You can find a price grid for major cities on our website at www.grezzorestaurant.com/togo

We're very excited to begin offering this service to you all, and we look forward to hearing from you soon!

Cheers!

It's a bit pricey, but they do all the work for you and Alissa Cohen has some good food! I really enjoyed food made from her cookbook, when I took the raw food class.


My orientation was today....not sure how that will work out or if I'll be able to go back to school for nutrition. Still have to wait awhile to find out.


I am also a distributor for http://www.noblelifeelements.com/maximumhealth

I have done Mary Kay before, so I was skeptical going into it, but the program they have in place is pretty much genius. It's unlike any network marketing/MLM I've ever heard about. I'd love to go over it, or even if you just want to try out the products, let me know! I've been using the Gold Rush and I think it's really been helping with my half-marathon training, so I'm excited to spread the word about products I already believe in.

That's all....oh yeah, and if you want to sponsor/donate for me starting up a raw food smoothie/juice bar, or give me business advice on starting a restaurant, let me know (yeah, right...but doesn't hurt to ask!!)

:P
