We were recently invited to the 2nd annual Gala of Light, which benefits Street Haven at the Crossroads, and was hosted by television personality, Melissa Grelo, Co-Host, and CP24 Breakfast/News Anchor. It was a lovely night of fundraising, eating delicious appetizers, sipping tasty cocktails, laughing and catching with some of my favourite bloggers, not to mention a mind blowing performance by Universal Music Canada Recording Artist Divine Brown!

About the Gala of Light and Street Haven:

“This event was established by a group of power-house women to bring awareness to marginalized women in downtown Toronto. Street Haven at the Crossroads is a multi-program agency that was established in 1965 to serve homeless women. Viewed as our biggest fundraising event of the year, The Gala’s attendees include a diverse audience of 350+ socially aware, influential, trendsetting, men and women across all industries, including: financial services, entertainment, fashion, and media. Street Haven has been part of our city for 47 years and counting providing thousands of homeless women with safety, support for recovery and a road to self-sufficiency. We invite you to be a sponsor, donor and community ambassador to a very special organization. This year our fundraising initiative is Operation Soul Food, bringing fresh, healthy, food options to our clients. In addition to providing wholesome food, Street Haven’s women help grow a small community garden that provides great therapy to our clients and serves as a culinary asset in the kitchen to have fresh herbs on hand. Our long-term plan is to expand the program to include yoga instruction, access to memberships to YMCA facilities, meditation and food preparation classes.”- Shannon Wright

Detox with @KaengRaeng

Time to shed those winter ‘keep me warm’ extra pounds! Jump start your spring body activation with a 3 day cleanse. Sounds easy but is it?  You can eat fruit and vegetables and is basically a meal replacement. Weekends are the best time to try this.

Kaeng Raeng Vegan Cleanse  is a product I recently tried. It is very innovative and have 2 ways you can incorporate into your day. 1st, you can put it with water and shake OR you can put it into a smoothie.

The program is simple and straight forward:  just drink one pouch per meal time (3 times per day) in addition to raw fruits and vegetables.  Simply add one pouch to 24-32oz of liquid.  You can use water, juice, or non-dairy milk.  For best results, just add water.  You can also blend it with liquid, frozen fruit, or ice for a thicker sweeter smoothie.

There is a DETOX test you can take on the site that will tell you what you should start with.

Some of the fun facts of why you should do a cleanse:

 -Jumpstart weight loss

– Remove toxins

– Bolster immunity

– Improve digestion

– Enhance skin and hair quality

– Relieve bloating

– Reduce cravings and overeating

Kaeng Raeng is completely animal free, gluten free, caffeine free, eco friendly, and proudly made in Palo Alto, CA with only local ingredients.  KR contains no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives. KR contains no laxatives or stimulants. Each pouch contains more than a full serving of fruit and fiber, 15g of lean non-gmo protein, 2 billion live probiotic cultures, essential amino acids, and daily vitamins.  It’s gentle, mild, and filling!
