Sensual Journey at LionFish SupperClub

gabbyThis is a text my girlfriend Gabby who lives in Santa Cruz, sent me on Saturday.

I was so excited, that I forgot to respond to her for an entire day, because I was online finding out every detail I could about this event.  A Sensual Food night? Could it be? This concept isn’t a secret.  Sensual Food is the where it’s at!

If you have been wondering exactly what I’m talking about when I mention Sensual Food, here’s your opportunity to get the download, live! For all of you who don’t happen to live in Northern California, no need to fear, this idea is clearly spreading like wildfire. Tuning into the sensuality of food is the inevitable direction. If you’re eating fresh, vibrant, colorful, local and delicious food, engaging and igniting all of your senses is almost involuntary.…

Come Grocery Shopping with me!

I have a LOT of girlfriends who love to go shopping together; shopping for clothing. I can’t stand shopping for clothing! I’d much rather shop for FOOD! I’m fortunate to have a LOT of girlfriends who also love food, and they love going on culinary adventures. Farmer’s markets are some of the most exciting places in the world, if you use all of your senses to engage in the experience. I created a three minute video of one particular adventure because it was a whole morning of sensory pleasure with three women from completely different parts of the world.

Where do you put a pancit?

In your mouth, silly!  I actually didn’t know what Pancit was either, but fortunately, we have the lovely July to inform us.  I love traveling, and learning about food from other cultures. They way that some cultures perceive food-as sacred, a gift from the earth, or just pure respect for their bounty is fascinating. As the weather becomes warmer, I’m dreaming of exotic travel, and living vicariously through July is just enough to tide me over for the moment. Please read on to dive into this mini food-adventure with me 😉

Masarap!

There is a rumor, or perhaps a stereotype, that every Asian airline must employ beautiful flight attendants. As I sit on Philippine Airlines flight 2905 heading from Manila to Bacolod, the island of Negros, I cannot dispute it.…

Meeting the Food Babe

The Food Babe
Food Babe in Mountain View, CA!

Have you ever seen an invention, and said to yourself, “Hey! I thought of that years ago! Why didn’t I act on it?!” I feel like this is so common in our world today, and this same scenario goes for business as well.  When my husband Joe discovered the Food Babe, I totally had this feeling.  Why wasn’t I courageous enough to start speaking about the food industry publicly?  What was I waiting for? How could I withhold this information for years?! This feeling only lasting a brief moment, because I instantly fell in love with Vani Hari, the Food Babe and decided that the only and best option was to join the food babe army. …

Do you feel amazing today?

There’s a first time for everything, right? This will be the first time I share feedback in this way. I could simply just add it to a scrolling list of positive testimonials on the sidebar of LanaShay.com, but this was near and dear to my heart, so I’m sharing it with you here. Do I have your permission? If so, please read on 😉

When I posted The Hurb, one response came in via email:

“Good morning Lana!
 
This is incredible!!!
I just emailed Kelsea via the “contact” link on their site. I’d love to help get The Hurb [vending] machines into Madison. Thanks for sharing! Our office building alone has the nastiest vending machine, that no one touches because the options are horrible!

2 steps for overcoming the fear of cooking

Just a week or so ago, Joe and I went on a double date with our good friends, who I absolutely love talking food with. We went to one of our favorite restaurants, Dosa in San Francisco.

While we indulged in our Dahi Vada, it dawned on me that the issue we were discussing wasn’t uncommon. It wasn’t something I’d experienced, so I didn’t tune it right away-so I’m definitely curious if it rings true for you.

We’ll call the female counterpart of these double daters, Sara, and her husband Tom. Sara was telling Joe and I a story about visiting friends on the East coast. It was a joyous conversation until a dreaded question arose. “Tom! What does Sara make you for dinner?”

I don’t think what came next in the replay of this conversation was so important.…

Did you eat chocolate on Valentine’s Day?

I sure did! It was a nice heaping scoop of “sensual fudge-y love sauce.” But, I know what you’re thinking. This article is late.  Valentine’s Day is old news! Although I do have a question for you, specifically about this holiday.

What comes to mind when you think of V-day?  Roses? Kisses? Chocolate?!

psst! This is the instagram account where I found the love sauce!

This food from the Gods is not something to be taken lightly. When I eat chocolate, it has to be the kind that uplifts my soul and pleases my body in every way (especially if I’m having it on an occasion that is deemed the day for lovers).  You didn’t think chocolate had these abilities, did you?…
