I have been giving out my own version of the Liquid Gold Elixir recipe to a bunch of people through email, so I think I should just post it. The original recipe is by Natalia Rose.
Maggie’s Take on Liquid Gold Elixir
- 3 large cloves of garlic, grated (probably less for normal people)
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 3-4 tablespoons bragg’s liquid aminos
- 3-4 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 2 teaspoons powdered stevia (I use the kind from Trader Joe’s but I want to get NuNaturals when I run out)
Blend everything in a food processor. It really does come out gold, and tastes like the elixir of life. It’s fabulous.
Another raw recipe that I tried (finally) is Gena’s Banana Soft Serve. It was so awesome!
I took 2.5 bananas and blended them in my mini food processor for 2-3 minutes. I probably could have gone on for longer but it was 11pm and Bobby said I was probably waking the neighbors. I topped it with cinnamon.
If you haven’t seen it, Clare did a very cool post about Vinyasa (and I helped with the etymology = word origins).
Jordan also had a sweet post about some of the inspiration she’s found from other bloggers.
And I wrote about the English alphabet (it hasn’t always looked like it does today!).
A sweet reader sent me this recipe site and I’ve been ogling over the healthy recipes. I might try some out!
Fun stuff & exercise:
Bobby and I did Yogadownload.com‘s Sun Salutations Flow #2 (Dave Farmar instructing; ~25 minutes). We are going to do yoga together today, too. Before yoga I did 15 minutes of rebounding and then I did 15 more afterwards.
And my anthropology class – it seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun. I might sign up for Cultural Anthropology too; it’s a video class and I can watch it at home. Cultural Anthropology is cool because it gets into linguistics.
Stay tuned for some resolutions tomorrow 🙂 September and Fall make me feel refreshed, happy, and motivated! I also love September because it’s my birthday month – I’ll be 23 in less than 2 weeks. Scary.

Yay! Welcome to the wonderful world of banana ice cream. You’ll never go back.
I tried Natalia Rose’s recipe for the dressing and didn’t like much, maybe I added too much ginger. This sounds delish, I’ll definitely try it!
yoga with Bobby? thats fun! I wish Star do yoga with me too! 🙂
You are only 22????
Dear God I feel OLD!
you are wise beyond your years m’Lady!
I have saved your gold elixer and am going to give it a whirl this weekend…I need a dressing to try!
oh and Gena is right…. her soft serve is a staple in our home!
I didn’t realize you were younger than me! You seem so mature and to have your stuff together, I always thought you were a little older! I’ll be 25 in Oct. SCARY too!!! mmm that soft serve looks delicious! I’ll have to give that a try w/ all the extra bananas we always have!
Thanks for sharing that recipe, Maggie! Sounds awesome 🙂
Yay for September birthdays! I think early 20s are a time when you start getting scared of getting older (turning 22 soon). So I totally get where you are right now!
LOOOVE Gena’s soft serve!
Twenty-three! You are a young spring chicken:) I am almost 40!! How’s that for feeling old?
That is so cool that Bobby did yoga with you! And your dressing recipe looks more do-able than Natalie’s which called for something like 2 cups of lemon juice!
Can’t wait to see your resolutions. Other people’s resolutions always motivate me:)
23? Girl, I’m 34–you’re just a youngin’! 😉
Yeah, banana ice cream is YUM!
I need to make the banana ice cream! The food processor is in a very high up cabinet and my shoulder hurt when I tried to take it down and Rob is tall but lazy and we don’t even know if it still works, but as soon as I get it down I am making it. With carob chips. Mmmm.
I juiced mint and it made my juice so delicious! Thank you for the idea!
I love September for the same reasons… I LOVEEEE fall, the weather, the leaves, the flavors, the coziness… and I also have a September birthday coming up!
Mine’s September 15th, when’s yours?

Yoga together? I love it! When is your birthday?
Thanks for the recipes!!
I’ve always made my resolutions/goals in September too. Probably because it’s also my birthday month. Hehe.
Haha, I’ve made that banana thing before. It’s great. I’ve added peanut butter and it rocks even harder.
I saw that liquid gold recipe in a cookbook but it wasn’t raw. I can’t wait to try out your version!
23 is NOT old!!! Got any fun bday plans lined up?!
Lurve the banana soft serve……..and i still have yet to try it! I know I know!
1.) NuNaturals’ NuStevia is my favorite stevia.
2.) I almost declared an Anthropology minor in college – the only thing that held me back was that it would’ve meant me staying an extra year or two. Sociocultural and Biological Anthro were incredible courses.
The more I read your blog, the more I love it and relate to it!
