icon_sproutingcheatsheetHELLO to you, dear reader!

I've been super inspired these recent weeks about the vibrance of fresh greens, and I've had it on my heart that organic and fresh greens can feel pricy in some situations. (Like… when you're on a tight budget but don't have a garden of your own!) Thankfully, we can upgrade most life situations, even if it's not overnight. :-)

So that said, one way to eat super fresh on a budget is to have a kitchen garden. The great thing about growing food INSIDE your home is that it adds freshness to your plate but also kind of permeates your home and life!

EVERY SINGLE TEACHER who joins us for the teacher training this time will receive our FULL (online!) kitchen garden kit. That's not even advertised… I just… decided! Just for answering a little question and rooting our teachers on we'll send you the SPROUTING CHEAT SHEET, made especially for busy entrepreneurs, moms, and *ahem* brown thumbs!

What would you MOST love to teach *OR* learn in a fresh food class?

Note: Our FINAL live teacher training is happening April 21 to May 11. Check out the bonus toward the bottom of this page! INCLUDING (only for pre-registration by APRIL 19!!) a FREE WEBSITE!!!!!!!


Your life + health + outlook have been transformed
(definitely for the better!)
thanks to changing your lifestyle…


You simply can’t help sharing with your friends
(+ neighbors + banker + random strangers + family + coworkers +++)
about your excitement…


But you’re not sure you have the
confidence, skills, or tools
to actually make an income helping others transform their lives too.


It’s time to stop
dreaming about what it would be like to share this with people who want to make real changes.

It’s time to start
really sharing this (big time!) with the people who are waiting for you to step up to the plate!


This won’t require you to do much more than be yourself and do what you’re already doing, but with some thoughtfully planned activities that will enable you to leverage your time, skills, and passion!

introducing… the uncooking101 raw food teacher training!

This virtual training is designed to give you the tools (and yes the skills and confidence too) to successfully teach raw food classes.

eva15-bio-photoHi! It’s Eva Rawposa here, and I never planned to be a raw food chef, teacher, or health coach. It just kinda fell into my lap. In the winter of 2006, there I was… gassy (you know, “toot toot”, so awkward) and with all sorts of other challenges with my health and life in general. I searched google for “ulcers + gas + natural cure”, found out about raw food, tried it, and three days after going raw I was healthy. It’s so bizarre and unbelievable that “just” “food” would make such a difference. But it did.

And since then I’ve worked with thousands of individuals, only to find that simple lifestyle changes help the vast majority of us to feel worlds better.

And so I became a woman on a mission. People need this information. All people? Nope! But the people who need it, well, they need it! And I can tell you from experience, not one doctor took a pause from writing out my prescription medications every month to say “Hey Eva, maybe if you tweaked your lifestyle or diet, you’d get better naturally?”

And, most of the time, doctors don’t inspire their patients to take matters into their own hands. They don’t write prescriptions for green smoothies or raw foods or yoga. It’s just not the way things work.

And THAT, my dear, is where YOU come in!


Note: Any of the following could be true, and you would make at least a decent fit. Ideally, however, all or at least two of the following are true to make you an ideal green ambassador.

You have been touched by the healing, weight loss, added clarity, or other benefits from living a raw or high-raw lifestyle.

By adding yoga, meditation, or other life-enhancing activity to your life, you have enjoyed significant results.

You want to share great health with others effectively, and have a heart for seeing them enjoy life and health more fully.

You are interested in potentially creating (or adding to!) a successful full- or part-time business helping others with their health.

Because we’ll guide you through learning and then teaching the course, and the support built into the program, no “ideals” or requirements exist for how long you have been a health enthusiast.


Note: This is an overview of the program and what it includes, but you’ll find much more detailed info as you continue reading.

[at your pace: 25 hours kitchen time] First you’ll start as the student. We cover (with DVDs + books + action items for you to complete) raw food + strategies to help YOU build a healthy foundation in your own life.

[at your pace: 10-15 hours prep + teaching time] Next, using these core materials (because this is what we specialize in!) you’ll complete the teaching portion. After teaching your demo class, you’ll have permission to teach + receive your bonus LIFETIME website.

[at your pace: time to complete ranges] We include marketing + business-building info as a part of the teacher training!


STUDENT GUIDE AND 2-CD DVD SET An intro to the raw food lifestyle, meant to be followed along with the accompanying DVDs. Plenty of tips and tricks, with the goal of you seeing better the student’s perspective in the class you may teach.

Note: This originally was going to be CDs, but we upgraded to DVDs so you would REALLY have the chance to see the student’s perspective. The CDs honestly just didn’t seem to be good enough, and we TRULY want you to have all you need to succeed with this!! A walk-through of each recipe and idea, covered on two (professionally shot) DVDs with more than 2 hours of coverage about what raw is, the recipes, the equipment, and more. They make it feel like we are right there together in the kitchen!

PERSONAL CHEF CERTIFICATION As part of completing this program, you will be awarded with a professional certificate mailed to you to show to others that you are certified as a living foods chef.






I really have no idea how to put a value on this one. It’s just sooo helpful! The Teacher’s Guide is designed to be laminated so you’ll be able to easily for class after class. With shopping lists, planning guides, and other tools to help you plan for, teach, and stay on schedule when teaching.

Here are some of the many details included in your teacher’s guide:

  • Your countdown calendar to prepare for the class, with marketing, shopping, printing, and every important detail taken into consideration
  • A shopping checklist for your class
  • Extra hints and tips for each recipe to help you teach it like a pro
  • And more… This is your perfect guide to have laminated and use in class… spilling whatever you spill with just a quick wipe-off needed to use this one over and over without a hitch


You’ll have permission to teach the uncooking101 class as part of completing the program successfully. No need to pay any commission to us, either! YOU keep all profit generated from getting the message out and helping others!


This is ONLY available via this program. It could literally save you thousands in website design, administrative help, time spent NOT teaching classes or getting the word out. Here is just snippet of the gems you will find in this book:

  • how/where to find your best clients
  • which social media do you really need?
  • how to build your website fast & cheap
  • how to keep in touch without pestering
  • THE hands-down BEST way to build referrals
  • biz cheat cheat {for newbies and beyond}


[Note: You'll use the below info on your own website or on your teacher site within uncooking101.com. Either way know this class and the advertisements for it are BOTH designed to appeal to the senses and to help your future students IMMENSELY with making some SUPER transformations both in life and in the kitchen!]


the class that will demystify raw food.

A lucky find for beginners, but even experienced raw food enthusiasts will find new information in this flavor- and action-filled class!




Your first several treats include drinks that nourish you, indulge you, satisfy you & even trick you!

* Multiple Nut Milks. One option takes literally 2 minutes, start to finish, and requires only a blender! We will also enjoy the “usual” raw variety of almond milk, but having an alternative like our 2-minute easy milk is such a lifesaver!
* Multiple (Dairy-free) Milkshakes. These will knock your socks off and satisfy anyone. We’re talking raw vegan shakes that anyone (yes, ANYONE) would adore!
* A kickin’ Fruit Smoothie & a “Green” Smoothie that isn’t even green. Plus, why even those on a standard diet need this one drink to kick their health into high gear (painlessly!).

Early Summer Salad

The Uncooking School

Easy Burritos

Next we’ll completely destroy the idea that salads & green-based meals are b-o-r-i-n-g.

* A truly Sensational Salad & Refreshing Vinaigrette Dressing, with a Rich Pate to top it off. Each of these recipes can be separated — the pate would work well as a dip or even in a veggie wrap. We’ll show you how to use the whole lemon to make a creamy (yet totally nut-, seed- and dairy-free) vinaigrette you will use over and over, and the salad itself is just as lovely!

* The Easiest Burrito Wrap Ever. But this isn’t just about the wrap. We’ll cover how to make sure you have exactly what you need to 1/ habitually be as raw as you want to be without a struggle and 2/ use these handy items to whip up a meal quickly, anytime.

Cream of Mushroom

Pumpkin Pesto

Raisin Walnut Truffles

For a few final indulgences, we have two potluck favorites (the truffles and pasta seem to be making their rounds at potlucks all over the world!) and a creamy soup that would put almost any traditionally creamy soup to shame.

You’ll learn why the pesto pasta is one countless people have called the “best they ever had”… and you will laugh as you see it takes just a few minutes to whip it together with some of the least expensive ingredients in the store!

And then, when you think it couldn’t possibly get better we’ll make a dessert that takes about 5 minutes (or 10 if you don’t have a friend to help you with the fun part!) and can be transformed from 1 type of truffles into countless others and even donut holes that actually taste like, well, donut holes. (Seriously. We couldn’t even make something like this up!)

Other great topics include:

  • what raw is
  • (and isn’t! Which could surprise you!)
  • some tricks to making it easier than you ever thought possible… no matter HOW long you’ve been on this journey, curious, or dabbling.

Our goal is to make raw food easy without sacrificing the flavor or that wonderful feeling of indulgence that won’t let you down when you’re done thoroughly enjoying yourself!

The investment for this action- flavor- and fun-packed class is only $129, which includes all food and materials.

Please come hungry!



EVERYTHING is virtual and online so can be downloaded to your computer for your own convenience. It’s all set up so that you may easily fit this into YOUR schedule!


purple-checkmarkOne of the GREATEST things about this program for those of you on a tighter budget, is that it is not meant to cost you even a penny in the end. It is meant to both MAKE you money and help to you to HELP others! Keep reading for more on that!

purple-checkmarkYou teach ONE class to only TWELVE people, and you’ve already made back the cost of attending the program PLUS the cost of the food you taught. (Not to mention, you’ll probably have yummy leftovers, but I’m not calculating that in!)

purple-checkmarkThen you add in the marketing help, the support from your peers and the staff at Uncooking101, and you are really building your business way faster than you might have ever thought possible, and helping people faster too. That’s the point, ya know?!

purple-checkmarkOf course we can’t put any monetary value points on the feeling of doing an even better job helping others, with building a more successful business (or starting one!), or with personal satisfaction.

For what we can calculate, here’s a breakdown for you:

  • Just ONE Class, Revenue for 9+ Students $129 x 9+ = $1161+
  • The Standard Program Components $500+

The very last reason to skip this offering, would be “The Money Thing”. The details on exact investment costs are below, but it is clearly a super value and an investment you really can’t turn down. Not if you want to help others and help yourself in the process!


You’ll have materials in hands immediately to prepare for your demo class (we simplify it – you can do it! promise!!). You can do this as quickly as you’d like! It’s ALL simplified. We will get EVERYTHING to you and make it super easy to follow. Promise!

But we’ll also be hosting a live course (our final one!) to inspire you to get a MOVE on and totally enjoy the process…


*NOTE: This is our last LIVE training, but note that I’ve been known to be VERY GENEROUS with surprise bonuses for our teachers. So this is not like “the end of all things Uncooking101″! Just to be clear!

Monday, April 21 We begin as a group
Tuesday, April 22 [7pm EST] Welcome Call with open Q&A
Monday, April 28 [7pm EST] Training Call with open Q&A
Wednesday, May 7 [7pm EST] Training Call with open Q&A



Absolutely, you will be qualified to teach the Uncooking 101 class, if the following are true:

  • You are on this journey yourself, and you’re excited about raw food and its benefits.
  • You complete the program we have laid out for you and take advantage of the support.

That’s it. When I first went raw, I was not a gourmet chef transitioning to raw. I did have my specialties, but for most dishes I was a total beginner. Not only did I have to go buy a food processor to follow some of the recipes, I didn’t even know what one was. It was because I had to learn everything from scratch that I ended up understanding better what people were going through as they transitioned to raw foods. Some people are used to buying everything from a box! It’s not uncommon these days. But even those people (like myself!) can get over the learning curve.

Wherever you are starting from, I promise you that it is A-OK as long as you complete the program and have your heart in this. The rest will follow, including the people who come up to you after a class to thank you… the ones with tears in their eyes who KNOW this is the path for them but just needed to know they could make it easy!


Because the classes are so established, I honestly almost never receive this question. But I’ll answer it anyways… Here we go. I am going to skip some of my details but include the more pertinent reasons I am beyond qualified to teach a program of this nature.

The value of the course far exceeds the price paid. I can’t even describe the value of the group calls and the private one-to-one coaching. This content combined with Eva’s energy and dedication to all of her students has created a high-quality program for anyone out there that wants to expand their business to the next level…Thank you Eva for your commitment and dedication. I learned lots of amazing information and recipes from you and will be using this material often. I really appreciate all of your help.”

I’ve worked with Eva off and on for a few years now, so I’ve had the honor and pleasure of being up-close-and-personal with many of the things she’s worked her tail off on in order to bring raw food simplicity and deliciousness to the world.So when I discovered that she was going to be providing a raw food e-course for would-be raw teachers, I knew exactly how amazing it would be, and signed up immediately.This is the very best thing she’s ever done, and I say this without hesitation. Not only is it informative and helpful in learning Eva’s very best recipes (and believe me, I have tried MOST of them), but it also teaches you how to teach those recipes.It also gives you a comprehensive, step-by-step program for starting your own raw food business – from setting up a website, to creating your own brand, to utilizing social media to get the word out. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

Perhaps my favorite part of the program was being introduced to Eva’s HEX method, for creating a delicious recipe every time. This information has been invaluable to me and gave me the confidence I needed to adventure in the kitchen. I cannot recommend this program highly enough.

Studying with Eva has seriously taken my Raw Business and profile to the next level. I thought I was going to be just learning a bunch of recipes and how to do it when I signed up for the 2011 training, but I was totally wrong! We covered what to put on our websites, marketing, and a million zillion things I would have never thought of!

Now I feel totally confident to go out there and spread the good news of raw food and create a business for myself… The opportunities keep coming! It’s almost not up to me anymore, the public wants and needs this info! I’ve trained with many different teachers over the years but none as fun and generous as Eva. The other thing that has happily surprised me is that usually when a course ends… like magic… you’re out on your own… Not so with Eva. I still feel supported and cared for by her, and she regularly keeps us up to date and does everything in her power and more to encourage us to be the best we can be…

I’m gushing a bit, but I truly mean every word THE BEST………EVER……..IS………EVA!!!!

I’d tell someone trying to decide whether to do the course or not to JUST DO IT. I remember trying to decide… and if I knew then what I know now, there would have been ZERO hesitation!

Heather Gardner, Ireland and UK

This class was amazing in terms of its content and value. Eva definitely over delivered, proving more than enough material to get your business off to a flying start. The program covered every aspect needed to run a raw food class and takes all of the guess work out of planning, providing everything you could possibly need from shopping lists, timetables and feedback forms, you couldn’t ask for more.[If you're interested] Don’t hesitate! Sign up straight away!”

Simone SamuelsEva’s Uncooking 101 Teacher Training course is excellent value for anyone who wants to become a raw food chef or who wants to build their business as a holistic health professional. Eva takes you step by step through the whole process of building a successful and thriving business, and incorporates marketing alongside raw chef coaching in such a way that is easy to learn and understand.

The value of the materials and the very personalized teaching is worth much more than the advertised price tag- Eva over-delivered on all my expectations. For anyone who is thinking about doing the teacher training course, I would say- do it! The materials that you get are clear, colourful and extremely useful- especially the laminated run sheets for classes and the laminated teacher guides. These make teaching your first class really straightforward, and I have used them now many times.In addition to the helpful training DVDs that show you how to teach a class, Eva also sets you up with the knowledge you need to set up and start teaching classes, and the business guide is like gold for a budding business person.

You will even get your own website, which is great for people who are not confident with starting on the technology side of a business. In the program, there is also plenty of support along the way, so you will never feel lost.

Even though I was based outside of the USA I never felt alone as I embarked on my journey. The online forums were a good place to sound out ideas to other teachers in- training, and the weekly calls were also informative. Eva’s teacher training course was practical, useful and informative in its entirety and it really moved me into action and doing instead of just ruminating and theorizing.

It has made my hobby into something a lot more serious and gave me the focus I needed to get my business moving. I have already earned back the cost of the course through running successful raw food classes which I never would have got off the ground without the guidance and support I received. This program is definitely worth the time and investment.

satisfaction-guaranteedIf you want to share great health with others, I believe there is no better program available, with anyone, anywhere, than what we are offering. It is an outstanding value, but more importantly it offers you everything you could possibly need to really jump in. Quite frankly, I cannot imagine saying “no”!

Know that, no matter what, in the end this program comes with a 100% money-back guarantee because we know what works and have designed every piece of this program with that in mind.

Complete the program (including super-easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions on preparing for, teaching, and marketing your classes) and it was not enough to share this successfully, we will give back 100% of what you paid after you have returned the files to us. PLUS $100 FOR THE INCONVENIENCE. NO JOKE. Simple as that.


What if I have to miss a call?

Will you do this program again?

When will I receive the course materials?

I reached to 80%-100% raw and I’m happy with that. For now I don’t have intentions to go 100% raw 100% of the time, so you think this course will still be good for me?

I’m still new in this, still experimenting and absorbing LOADS and LOADS of information, you think now is the right time to have this course or I should read and learn more by myself first?

I’m a full-time working mom with 2 adorable girls – [names and details omitted]. I believe you know what my question is (is there enough time?!).

What if I don’t want to be a raw food teacher? What if I just want to go raw and share it with family and friends?

I’m in Australia. Will this work for me?

april1-Louise-Hay-You-Can-Heal-Your-Life-ReviewHEY! If you’re seeing this on the home page of our site click the title “REVIEW + GIVEAWAY” to get to the giveaway and make comments. :-)

I feel compelled to write a review on this book because I resisted it for so long yet it moved me so deeply. I heard all these great things about Louise Hay, but then I saw the title. I thought, hmmm, OK, “You Can Heal Your Life.” Sounds cheesy, but I’ll read it when I have more time.

Seriously… seriously… NOW I UNDERSTAND!!


OK, first off, this book was written in 1984. That was back when there wasn’t a ginormous section of self-help books. That’s why it was essentially self-published. To get this book out in the world, Ms. Hay stared Hay House, Inc.

And, do ya know how many copies of this book have been sold? We’re talkin’ a SELF-published book that’s sold more than 50-Freaking-Million copies!!

Of course, since then, Louise Hay has been a huge force behind selling way more books than that. You know the kind… that you read them and you can experience a better life as a result.


Ms. Hay takes us on a journey, in a particular way. In the beginning, before we start, she gives us a head’s up of what we’ll be doing then she says that she’ll close the book by sharing her story. She hints that it was low, and that anyone can be lifted up by using these ideas, now matter how low the start.

So we wonder… what in the WORLD could have happened to her?!

And then we begin the journey. Ms. Hay takes us step by step on the journey of a client. Every chapter takes us through a part of the process or the body. We even go through resistance to change and HOW to change!

THEN, we go through pretty much every part of life: relationships, work, success, prosperity, and yup, our actual physical body.


Here’s how I FEEL when I’m reading it.

I feel like I’m having a deep conversation with a super-loving grandmother who has seen it all and lived to tell the tale. One who has been through a lot and come out stronger, richer, and kinder.

She sees the things I’m doing in life, and she knows it’s not working. She knows me deep down. She gets inside of me with her kind and penetrating eyes. And as she looks at me with SO MUCH LOVE, she writes out an old remedy.

I don’t feel any judgment, just love and respect. So I trust her. And whatever remedy she is writing on that paper, I feel deep down that it will do me no harm.

And then I read the paper, and I laugh. Her suggestions feel simplistic and even a little woo-woo. I mean, WAY out there. But… I trust her… and I have this deep feeling inside that it might just work.


Mind you, I have a long life ahead of me, and I have done only a fraction of the exercises… But that said, WOW, seriously. The results have been crazy!

Every single facet of life that I’ve experimented with (NO EXCEPTIONS) has seen positive results. I feel more at peace, I see the positive changes, I know that what I’m doing has value.


Toward the end of the book, there is a whole section she calls “The List.” It’s a list of pretty much every category of sickness in the human body (aches, cancer, diabetes, acne, addictions, AIDS, colitis, eczema, ETC). And with each item, she gives a probably cause and the mindset change to help heal from the inside out.

I feel intuitively that many of these are insanely accurate. And as I read through the challenges I’ve personally had but no longer have thanks to healing my body! (ulcers, acne, eczema, high blood pressure), I find myself nodding my head. YES, YES, YES! This makes sense!!


I think it’s important to get past cynicism (like I had!) to allow this book to fully work its magic. The magic is found in taking action. When we take action, that’s when we get the gold!


It’s a jaw-dropper. And she tells it like this crazy things were all gifts. The way she tells it, I feel like all my little challenges are nothings. And like it’s time for me to let go of drama and enjoy life.

And so… I do. With gratitude for Louise Hay and every other person who has helped to pave the way. The story tellers, the health food chefs, the healers… people like Eckhart Tolle and Thich Nhat Hahn helping me to experience the present moment… people like Alissa Cohen who helped me to understand that food is not just about the food… And I could go on, but for now…


I just want you to know that I recommend this book without any shadow of doubt. If you have any kind of sickness, addiction, or other challenges in your life, and you are ready to heal, seriously, buy the book, read it, and do what she says.

You can trust in what Ms. Hay recommends, and know that part of the foundation of this book is trusting in yourself. So it’s not just a blind trust in someone else. Oh, NO! You get to take responsibility for you :-) but just with the guidebook most of us could really use.


we are doing a giveaway!! (It’s below!!)

if you just want to buy it, you can find it here on Amazon.com

They have it at local book stores in many countries and languages. It’s available as a Kindle book on Amazon.com, so if you’re not in the USA, you look for it in YOUR language or in your local store, or even download it to your computer.

[FREE-download] Sharing RAW Recipe Collection! http://uncooking101.com/site/sharing-raw/recipe-collection/ http://uncooking101.com/site/sharing-raw/recipe-collection/#comments Sat, 29 Mar 2014 22:04:23 +0000 eva {uncooking101} http://uncooking101.com/site/?p=15083

Hello my dear!

BOY, oh BOY have I got some yummy goodies for you today!!!


I had the very great pleasure to co-create a recipe book with 12 other foodies who attended an “uncooking” vacation on the lovely island of Martha’s Vineyard late last year. To say “it was a pleasure” is, like, the greatest understatement of the year!

It was AMAZING. The food, the people, the adventure!!

And… can you believe it… we recorded EVERY SINGLE RECIPE to share!! We’re talking’ 50+ full-color food photos and carefully tested recipes, including PIZZA, CALZONES, PASTAS, SMOOTHIES, MILKSHAKES, PIE!, and so much more!

Sharing Raw Chocolate MacaroonsThe collection is called “SHARING RAW” because we got together and made it with the idea of, well, sharing raw.

In the spirit of sharing, it’s not for sale, it’s totally-FREE!!


We’ve already made several (lovely!) recipe cards with The Green Chef Academy. Just a head’s up that ONE is cooked (the not-fried “fresh fries”) but has a delicious raw alternative :-) . The others are all fresh and raw for those who like to keep things raw. :-)


It even includes free WEEKLY recipes + the full collections. Of course if you’d like to skip the weekly goodies, you can unsubscribe any time!!

To download it all at once, just CLICK HERE

Then of course it’s all printer-friendly if you’d prefer to print ‘em for easy access in the kitchen. :-)

I’m SO EXCITED to be able to share this with you!! If you have friends or family who are raw-curious, send them on over to download the collection too! Or forward this email. :-)

That’s it for now! I’ll talk to you again soon!!



P.S. OH, and just a quick note… K.O.’s pie… from the desserts section of “Sharing Raw”… is super simple (we’re talking 10 minutes for a whole pie that’s lovely as can be and full of flavor!)… and it’s been a party + family favorite here in BBQ-country, Brazil for the last several months.

I recommend them ALL, but just want to throw that out there!

Sharing is caring! ;-)

3 simple steps to solve ANY challenge. (seriously!) http://uncooking101.com/site/article/3-simple-steps/ http://uncooking101.com/site/article/3-simple-steps/#comments Sat, 29 Mar 2014 19:30:46 +0000 eva {uncooking101} http://uncooking101.com/site/?p=15074

3 stepsI am so stoked to share this learning with you because it has rocked my world, and I think it will rock it over and over again for the rest of my life. FOREVER! This simple 3-step solution to our challenges is a total game-changer. If you’re up for the challenge! (And I think you are…)


Just a couple weeks ago, I wrote about EXACTLY how time got to be on my side. It was simple… I started repeating (and believing!) the affirmation: “Time is on my side! I have all the time I need!”

Things were going along swimmingly. I was AMAZED. It felt so very good! I found myself in the present moment, slowing down but still Getting Things Done. I couldn’t believe the difference of just saying this simple affirmation.

But then… Carlos left the country for two weeks!! This was a last-minute trip and was originally supposed to be super short… Not two weeks! To say the least, without help with our 2-year-old daughter Lilla, suddenly time didn’t feel much like it was on my side.


I realized… (And this felt like a “duh” moment for me, so forgive me for stating the obvious!)…Affirmations don’t mean Jack if we don’t have the setup or take the action needed to make them true!


This particular situation was the result of my own choices! I have CHOSEN not to have Lilla in day care. I have CHOSEN for Lilla to be with her Daddy at night after work instead of a nanny during the day. I have CHOSEN to have high standards for Lilla’s safety and environment. I have CHOSEN to plan my life around motherhood.

But what about if you want to stop smoking or drinking and yet continue to surround yourself with people who are smoking and drinking? Like, you want to quit drinking but go to a bar? Or, you want to eat healthier foods and go out to eat at places that serve less-than-optimal food? Or, you want to try out the raw food lifestyle, but you don’t get the training and the fresh foods? Or, you want to exercise but don’t make the time in your schedule?

It’s one thing to say “Time is on my side” or “I’m losing weight/I want to lose weight” or “I want to eat more fresh foods” or “I want to learn to play the guitar”. It’s another thing entirely to say it AND, well, DO IT. Put your wallet and your actions where your mouth is!!


I’m not just standing here on my soap box. I have a specific and simple solution for you to make it happen!! And I’m tellin’ you ~ it WORKS!!!!

step 1STEP 1: DECIDE

Decide what it is you want.

SERIOUSLY. Decide it like you mean it. Picture it. Think about WHY you want it. How will it FEEL to have what you want? It is REALLY desirable? What SPECIFICALLY about what you want is so desirable? How IMPORTANT is it to you?

[MY STEP 1: As a momma, I want options. I don't want to depend on just one person, and I want to know that Lilla is safe, happy, and very well cared for when she's not with me. I want to be BOTH a devoted mommy AND to have time and space to be creative with this passion I have for the results of living a greener life!]

evarawposa-3steps-success-step2STEP 2: IMAGINE.

Complete this statement: “It would be beyond perfect if…”

What kind of situation would help you to have more success?

By the way (and I think this is key!!)… when it comes to SPECIFIC people taking certain actions (other than you, of course), I recommend leaving them out. Why? In Portuguese they say this “Somente ela e dona da nariz dela!” Meaning: Only she is the boss of her own nose! YOU are the boss of YOUR nose and your life. JUST, YOURS. So you might like to have a particular kind of person or situation to be a help to you, but please don’t leave your choices in the hands of another individual. Lemme tell you, being at the mercy of someone else, it’s not always pretty!

All that said, don’t be shy with the details. Go crazy with them!!

MY STEP 2: It would be beyond perfect if…

…an ENERGETIC, PATIENT, and HAPPY momma who also maybe even has a 2-year-old little girl could come to our house in the mornings?! Some days the kids can play and learn together while I work from another part of the property for a couple hours, uninterrupted. (Maybe I could even do some occasional helper-free gardening or we could garden all together…?!) And then I take a turn to have fun with the kids while the other momma helps get our clothes on the line + the breakfast/lunch mess cleaned up. So when she leaves, we had fun, we ate well, the house is clean, and I got to do some work on top of it all.

Then Lilla and I get to have our afternoon mommy/daughter together. Maybe I work more when she naps, or maybe we snuggle. Either/or. Separately, some nights I work another couple hours but some nights I can take the night off… No pressure because I have help!! AND it’s even during the time of day when I can shoot videos, so now I don’t have to rely on Daddy-O for videos!!!

evarawposa-3steps-success-step3STEP 3: ACTION!

Believe You Can! + Take ACTION today!

What can you do right now to bring yourself closer to your desired outcome? It doesn’t have to be overnight! BUT, you CAN take inspired + purposeful action to get closer. There is always something awesome you can do TODAY!

MY STEP 3: Write up an ad in Portuguese and go door-to-door talking with people I’ve met asking if they know “her”.

Finally, someone knew her. And like I said… she’s here. And Lilla adores her. Yesterday she brought some books with her, today she brought her (2-year-old! daughter) and we all drank the morning green smoothie together. And she has even more patience than I have. Which is a LOT! It’s just SO amazing!


I’m writing this while Lilla is a few steps away with her new nanny. They are cleaning the living room rug together as I write. My husband has been a naysayer for MONTHS about getting a nanny, saying I could never find someone here in the countryside of Brazil who would respect my lifestyle. Hogwash. I almost don’t even believe how perfect she is!


What is it you want? What is that thing you keep meaning to do? Believe it, my friend! You CAN have what you want. “Where there’s a will, there’s a way!”

And just so you know, if you have people in your life who don’t believe in you, what they think or say doesn’t have to be right. It’s only when you believe a naysayer that their words have power!! But YOU have the real power, especially when you don’t hand it over to others!


If you have something in life that you really want, either commit to time that you know you will be able to give this some real focus, OR take the time now to follow the 3 steps…

1/ Decide what you want.

2/ Imagine your perfect scenario.

3/ Take whatever possible action you can possibly take TODAY to at least get you closer…!


You won’t find a naysayer in these parts, my friend! I really believe you can have the life you want, the situations you want, WHATEVER you want really! If you believe it, I believe it!


Stay tuned… in the next few hours or so we’ll be posting a lovely recipe collection for you. It’s our GIFT. It’s been in progress for many moons, and I’m so happy it’s finished!!! (Especially thanks to our new nanny, that I got the final edits to our brilliant graphic designer!)
