Houston was Hot!

I am just having such a wonderful time on my book tour and I was so thrilled to travel to Houston with my dear friend Denise who helped me test so many recipes for my book and app. I really wanted to treat her to say thankyou. We arrived at the Westin Houston Downtown and were treated with exceptional service from general manager Chris Ziadie and her staff for our entire stay. We had a beautiful suite, and when we checked in executive chef Oscar Mejia had made some incredibly fresh…

My Epic Weekend in Phoenix

My time in Phoenix and Scottsdale was EPIC! My dear friend Wendi flew down from Seattle and we had such a blast together. She is so positive and hilarious, she had me in stitches the entire time! She was also such an amazing help assisting me with my hectic schedule. The team at the Westin Downtown Phoenix spoiled us rotten and made our stay so incredible. They hosted us in an exquisite corner suite on the top floor with incredible views of downtown Phoenix and the mountains. The hotel…

I Love San Diego!

To say I had a magical time in San Diego on my book tour is an understatement. I started my wonderful weekend with an appearance on San Diego Living. I appeared on the show a couple of months ago as part of my satellite media tour, and it was lovely to meet the crew in person. Marc Bailey is SO much fun, and we had a blast making the Coconut Curry Smoothie and Chocolate Truffles from the book. I felt bad when he inhaled some of my Navitas Naturals cacao powder and started coughing…

Denver Rocks!

I had a really beautiful time in Denver. I always feel energized when I go to Colorado. There is such a wonderful vibe around wellness and healthy living that I find inspiring. I arrived into Denver really late from New York and was absolutely exhausted after an incredibly busy week of appearances and meetings. So, to be spoiled with an amazing suite on the top floor of the hotel and a gorgeous welcome amenity of superfoods and dark chocolate with a 180 degree view of the city was such…

Magic in NEW YORK CITY

I make no secret of the fact that New York is my favourite city in the world. Scott and I are planning to move there (well, at least for part of every year.....I hate the cold weather) and I cannot wait! Needless to say, I savour every single moment in Manhattan. The Westin Grand Central hosted me during my stay, and it could not have been a better more "central" (pardon the pun) location for getting to all of my meetings and appearances. The staff there are so friendly, and with a…

Wonderful Weekend in DALLAS

I had such an amazing time in Dallas with my dear friend Richard and his family. After Dallas got hit with terrible storms and a tornado warning, my respectable 5PM flight out of L.A.X literally became a red-eye, leaving at about midnight and getting in at 4AM! Sooooo, I literally had time to sniff the sheets on my heavenly bed before flying off to a TV taping with no sleep! Thank goodness I was making one of the quickest easiest recipes from my book – the All-But-Instant Raspberry…

Happy Birthday: My Book Tour Kicks Off in Austin.

I had an amazing weekend in Austin, kicking off The Blender Girl National Book Tour with some of my closest friends. Westin Hotels are hosting me around the country for my tour and The Westin Austin At The Domain pulled out all of the stops to make sure I had an incredible stay. When I arrived, there was an amazing hand-written note and plate full of delicious superfoods as part of the Westin Wellbeing "Eat Well" initiative - encouraging guests to make healthy food choices. The…

The Blender Girl Book Launch Party at RA MA Yoga Institute in Venice, CA

The Blender Girl cookbook launched on April 8th and it was an exciting day. I woke up and the book was #130 of all books on Amazon, and started climbing. I was so blessed to have my parents visiting from Australia, Scott’s parents in from Sacramento, our dear friends Joann and Melissa from Arizona, and Richard from Texas, Michelle and Korey, as well as our sweet friends Debbie, Chuck, David, and Pola from San Bernardino. Planning and catering a party for 300 people is no small task…

Melissa’s Produce Hosts The Blender Girl Book Signing Party

I was incredibly humbled and grateful when my favorite produce company Melissa's Produce hosted a media and blogger book signing in their incredible kitchen at their headquarters in Los Angeles. Robert Schueller is such a kind, generous man, and boy does he know how to throw a party! It was my first book signing and I must admit my hand was shaking as I signed my very first book as an author. But I had such a great time chatting with everybody who came. Chef Tom and Chef Raquel…

Dr Mark Hyman: Sugar Addiction and The 10 Day Detox Diet

I had the privilege of interviewing my good friend Dr Mark Hyman, one of the most respected doctors in the United States about sugar addiction and his secrets to weight loss and optimal health. The strategies he shares in his new book THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION 10-DAY DETOX DIET will change your life. It seems I am not the only person who agrees that this book ROCKS! It was released yesterday as the #1 book on Amazon. The kind of food you eat can absolutely make the difference between…

California Strawberry Commission: “I Heart CA Strawberries” Field Trip

I LOVE strawberries. I cannot get enough of them! After battling life-long candida and following the Body Ecology diet (where strawberries are one of those life saving transition foods) and living an alkaline lifestyle, strawberries are a staple in our house because of their low sugar content. Even through strawberries taste decadent, sweet, and delicious, 1 cup of strawberries contains just 50 calories and 8 grams of sugar making them a dynamite food for those of us on low sugar…

Driscoll’s University and Pebble Beach Food & Wine 2013

After filming my Creamy Lemon Strawberry Smoothie Video for Driscoll's to celebrate their Vitamix Giveaway this month, I was thrilled to travel to Monterey, and visit their headquarters in Watsonville, CA. I was joined by the wonderful staff at Driscoll's and some fabulous food bloggers, talented recipe developers, and seasoned cookbook authors for the Driscoll's "Field To Fork" tour and the Pebble Beach Food & Wine Festival 2013. Raw food goddess, Ani Phyo, Jaden and Scott Hair…
