…and just like that, I’m a Babcia.

I think the last words I said to @_hotfingas before bed were “I think she’s gonna have those babies tonight.” We woke up to two kittens in the crate, two kittens curled up in the litter box, and a bright eyed and bushy tailed Patty Mayonnaise – clearly very proud of her accomplishments.

So far so good; everyone is healthy and making lots of little noises in my cozy bathroom. This is the best shot I could get before work; be prepared for some upcoming insanity-level cuteness as these nuggets get big and strong.

I’d like to introduce to you to Patty Mayonnaise. Much about Patty is unknown/undecided. One thing we know for sure, however, is that pretty soon she’s gonna be a mom.

Stay tuned, y’all. Oh, and peep her belly. Those kids are gonna be a handful.

“Expand your abilities and build on your talents, and you will be able to take a positive new step. However, you may find yourself working harder than ever. You may even start to doubt your ability to persevere. Just keep taking one step at a time, and be sure to rest when you feel like resting. Continue to believe in yourself no matter what transpires. This is an opportunity to move away from something that no longer serves your best interests, and towards something more natural for you.”

It’s that feeling of being amazed and a little bit breathless at your own power. Standing back and watching every manifestation coming to life around you; closing your eyes and listening to the symphony swell beneath your feet.

Ok, April. I see you.

You may have heard about my friend @chefchloe’s recent heartbreak as her namesake restaurant was hijacked by a carnist restaurant group.

Back in February of 2013, I interviewed Chloe for my podcast, #RedRadio. Aside from knowing her way around a vegan kitchen, she was enthusiastic and articulate, kind and down to earth, and seriously motivated to do incredible things on behalf of the animals.

Under a year prior to that interview, a wealthy, lawyered-up, non-vegan company snatched up all of my hard work, dedication, creativity and compassion with The Seed, an all-vegan trade show and festival I designed and launched in 2012. A nightmare to say the least, and not an experience I’d wish on anyone with a heart like Chloe’s.

As I said to the Divine Ms. Coscarelli this week: Be prepared. The Universe is giving you an opportunity to show us all what a truly creative and progressive chef looks like; what compassion tastes like; what a powerhouse of authenticity you are. Go get them, girl. You have a massive community of compassionate and proactive people ready and willing to lift you up higher than ever before. Remember: the real always rises to the top.

As for us? Boycott @eatbychloe. Boycott @esquaredhospitality. Vegans: assemble. #teamchloe

When your girl is one of NYC’s top Nail Technicians and you’re not a “get your nails did” type of gal but she convinces you to let her turn you into a lady for once in your damn life and you’re pretty fucking stoked on the results.

Thanks to my main, Gina, for making me feel fancy. You’re a true artist and a real boss.

Best way to reintroduce your body to solid food after eleven days of juice? By joining NYC’s top vegan chefs in the James Beard House kitchen, naturally.

Big thanks to @theveganizers for bringing @jayastafa, @chefchloe, @cinnamonsnail and @daphne________ together to veganize @jamesbeardofficial, and to my kitchen-husband Jay for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime tonight. It was an absolute honor to help create a truly compassionate and creative meal in such an esteemed space.

And for the record, now I need another cleanse.

Tonight, on this absolutely spectacular Spring Equinox, I complete the first phase of this absolutely spectacular cleanse.

Eleven full days of nothing but raw, organic, totally unpasteurized cold pressed juices [thanks to Warrior Karliin at @thesqueeze for supplying me with the goods], herbal teas, tinctures, tarot, yoga, writing, massage therapy, colon hydrotherapy, rituals, readings, crystals and some serious self-reflection. Completing the full 15 day cycle this week, I’ll slowly be adding raw foods back in, setting plans in action, and building the foundation for my beautiful life.

Stand by. Y’all ain’t ready.
