Natural Awakenings is publishing a story on Green Heart Bakery's arrival in Tucson in their March issue. Looking forward, I will donate a Fresh Fruit Tart to Equine Voices' next fundraiser on March 31st at Brandi Fenton Park for their silent auction. Then, April 28-29, I will have a table of food at Healthy You Network's annual Tucson symposium, Vegetation Not Medication! Speakers will include Dr. Esselstyn, John Robbins, Jeff Novick, and Doug Lisle, who are all coming to Tucson for this event - so that should be the high point of the year for interest in healthy eating and living!
In June, I will conduct a healthy cooking demo for Steve Liu's Q-100 monthly meeting ("Q-100" means "quality of life at 100 yrs. of age"). In September, I will do the same for the Foundation for Cardiovascular Health's Heart Series Program, which is led by Charles Katzenberg, M.D. and Edna Silva, RN.
And....wedding cakes! I am meeting with brides (and grooms) who have special dietary needs to design a beautiful cake for their wedding day.

Although Green Heart Bakery does not yet have a storefront, I am looking for a commercial kitchen. Whole Foods Markets has contacted me and would like to be able to offer some of Green Heart Bakery's healthy items to their customers. That will be a good project for this year!
|Hiking in the Catalinas|
Let's remember to relax and enjoy ourselves, too. Tucson weather is perfect this time of year for outdoor fun and adventures, and we've been taking advantage of it. We hiked Molino Canyon and saw a white-tailed buck, who bounded off when we surprised him. We ride our horses as often as possible, appreciating the beauty of Tanque Verde wash and surrounding trails.
Stay tuned! I will be offering goumet vegan dinners in an underground supper club format soon....
