filming with Cornias, Total Care Dental today: and the Almond Joy Fudge recipe

I just filmed the beginning of Samantha Cornia’s GSG Makeover in her kitchen. What fun to get Gavin’s and Olivia’s first green smoothie on film. Olivia was born with her organs outside her body, and although doctors put it all back in, she suffers with terrible constipation and digestive problems.

Heading over to film with the Hot Dental Girls at Total Care Dental shortly, as Karen was ill and we have to postpone.

The Good Earth has decided to co-sponsor GreenSmoothieGirl Makeover, and each participant is getting $50 in free groceries for the 8 weeks that we do this program. We’ll be taking the participants into the store for a tour that we’ll film; I will teach them new ways to shop, what to get and why, and how to eat whole foods on a budget. Samantha was very moved by this gift–thank you Good Earth, you are the best!!

Here’s the last recipe from last week, out of Ch. 4–a great way to get both your chocolate fix, and coconut oil in your daily routine (I’ll be writing some interesting stuff about coconut oil soon):

Almond Joy Fudge

2 cups raw, organic agave

2 cups organic, extra virgin coconut oil

If your coconut oil is solid, place its container in a sink of hot tap water to melt it first. Then put both ingredients in BlendTec and add:

1 cup raw powdered chocolate (or unsweetened cocoa)

Blend well, then pour mixture into a bowl and stir in:

2 cups shredded coconut

2 cups chopped almonds

Pour the mixture into a 9×13 pan, chill 2 hours, and cut into squares to serve.
