The Gift from Apple and Yves

I met Yves at Apple.

I received an unexpected gift from Apple this week when I met Yves. The Apple Store is intriguing, their whole concept is amazing, the cultish experience is fun, the creative products are awesome, the young passionate employees and the unbelievable $99 a year lessons are beyond cool. I am fully immersed in learning everything there is to learn about my new mac and iphone and I consistently show up every week to become an expert in technology.

This week I met Yves, who is a apple trainer. He showed me what he needed to show me on the computer and then shared a recipe with me which I will share with you. Now I venture to say he got a good feel for what I was about when he saw my purse which clearly states in bold letter, I COOK NAKED. He chuckled and then said, I am gonna give you a great recipe:

  • bok choy
  • parsley
  • celery
  • beets

Blend and serve.

I made this last night for dinner and it was so yummy, delicious and energizing that I want to share with you. Be careful not to spill this gorgeously purplish pink color shake, which I spilled on my dress, btw, which thankfully was a blend of orange, pink and purple swirls, because it stains.

Here is a secret. It’s not that I didn’t know what would happen, but every once and a while I need to be reminded of how great I feel eating pure and naked and how not great I feel when I don’t. So I conducted an experiment, which I often do, with my own body and food experience. Here’s what went down.

In a moment of “weakness”, “experimentation”, or “craziness”. Call it what you will I indulged in some “standard American foodfare” and I ate the following in addition to a lovely salad with some grilled calamari on top:

  • 1/2 glass wine
  • 2 forkfuls of whole wheat pasta
  • 1 slice WHITE ITALIAN bread with butter
  • chocolate squares (bunches of it) from Germany

I have got to say it was not worth the trip. One moment on the lips and sick to my stomach for a full night and the next day!

So dare I say that true pure naked food is the only way to eat.

I am grateful to Yves for sharing his special concoction with me and I am grateful for the experience of feeling the difference. It is through these experiences that you learn and grow. It is only when you become aware of the “GUT” feelings and GUT aches and pains that you change the way you eat because you want to. There is power in changing the way you eat not because you are depriving yourself but because you choose to eat better because it makes you feel better.

It sure BEET’s the white bread with butter.
