good news + berry party update

first of all, i finished my 14 day master cleanse. WOO HOO! i would jump in the air for joy but i'm not quite sure i have enough energy for it. i feel great! now i will be breaking the fast over the next few days which means that - boo hoo - today i'm off the lemonade but replacing it with OJ (yes, more juice <groan>). tomorrow is OJ and veggie broth. by friday, i'll be on solid foods again just in time for the miracle berry flavor tripping party! it will also be the first time i've had booze in over 2 weeks! i'll be a cheap date if there are any takers...

berry good news!

we have over 70 confirmed guests for the berry special party. my berry dealer was happy to accommodate me with a bigger berry shipment as this was a good week for ripe fruit and he just raised his prices (twice actually since i placed my order). i've even offered to take a few more off his hands so... anyone who hasn't RSVP'ed for the festivities on friday, i have extra berries! to guarantee yourself a berry for the flavor trip, paypal me at berryfairyhouston@gmail.com with the names of the attendees. the cost is $20 per person. or just show up at la strada before 6 pm. when i run out, i'm out for good this time and will post that info here if it happens.

special thanks to anonymouseater and she eats for their blog posts on the event. we could not have had a response this huge if it weren't for them! besos!

and expect to see more restaurant reviews now that i'll be eating real food again. on my list is raia's italian market, sunfired foods (houston's only raw food restaurant/deli), blue nile ethiopian (w/ my fellow chowhounds) and another visit to bowl.

the photo above is humboldt fog, one of my all time favorite cheeses (and not cheap at a whopping $25.99/lb). it will be served at the flavor tripping at la strada on friday. try to snag a taste before you eat your berry if you've never tried it before. and get here early or it might all be gone (read: in my belly).

Yay for Jenny! :)

Oh, and I also posted about the party on the HAIF, where there were some very interested replies. Hopefully we'll have some HAIFers out there, too.

I can NOT wait until Friday. :) :) :)

First full meal after the cleanse--heaven?

neverfull said...

@ coowen- i was supposed to be on just OJ yesterday, but i went to super h-mart and broke down. i had a little of everything at the table: kim chee fried rice, ramen, bibimbap, fried chicken. i must have a stomach of steel!

danhole said...

When are you going to Raia's? Lunch? Dinner? Let me know because I would like to try it out.

neverfull said...

@ danhole- i was planning to talk to food princess about it tomorrow at the berry fun party. i'll let you know. we'd love to have you.

Miracle Fruit said...

Miracle Fruit World is the best place to get the fruit tablets. The tablet-form has a longer shelf life and is believed by many to be more potent. I can vouch for both the effectiveness of the product and the legitimacy of the vendor. A lot of resellers have sprung up in the last few months, but Miracle Fruit World offers both lower prices and the piece of mind that comes from many happy customers.
