The 30th individual entry is Elizabeth Lakey from London! Elizabeth didn't leave a surname, but from her below comment, I just happen to know she attended my workshop :)
My morning oatmeal porridge with lots of good stuff in it... but after taking the beginner's raw food class yesterday I must say that a nice green smoothie or that wonderful chocolately almond milk smoothie will give you not only lasting energy but a healthy smile as well ;) "
I am SO excited today!! I haven’t been able to stop bouncing all daaaaay!
I must tell you there are MANY advantages to food blogging-
1. You get to share your ideas, experiments, thoughts and news with all those who actually care
2. You get to meet some amazing people from all over the world with common interests
3. You get to taste the food, a variety of it and ALL of the time
4. You can be as creative as you never knew was possible
5... But then there is that moment you realise that you truly have every right to LOVE what you are doing and that's when the companies you absolutely adore and obsess over send you a parcel just for... adoring and obsessing over them!
And because I also happen to adore my readers, I am giving YOU the opportunity to win my entire Hamper of Gifts! Whether it be all for yourself or a loved one, I will send it to you no matter where you are in the world (yes the competition is open to ALL) for you to receive it right before Christmas!! How much more good news can one paragraph contain?
