Well, the Women’s Potluck/Clothes Share was a wonderful success. Everyone brought food and clothes to share. And it was just so relaxed, with vibrant, wonderful women. I am truly rich to know them. Funny, ’cause we didn’t have electricity the entire day, but everyone was so at ease, these powerful, confident, beautiful women. We had a wonderful mix of veggies, fresh basil and fruits from gardens, fruit salad with yogurt, three types of tea, raw crackers, chocolate fondue, dried bananas, beans, and Quinoa Corn Salad with Avocado. So good! Everything! I feel entirely full in body and spirit.

How It Works:
The leaves of the red raspberry plant contain trace amounts of several minerals and vitamins. Women have used red raspberry leaves for centuries to support the female reproductive system, especially during pregnancy. Red raspberry leaves contain high levels of tannins and fruit acids, making this herb a popular astringent. Astringents tighten and tone tissues. Red raspberry may also help support the digestive system and colon.
