Guest Blog from Aandi, Chicago Demo Team

Here's a guest blog post and introduction from one of our Bliss operatives in Chicago, Illinois... :)

The Extended Bliss Family Keeps on Growing and Glowing!

Hi, I’m Aandi and I demo Coconut Bliss in Chicago; I am also a kombucha brewer with a budding new business and new baby daughter. Her name is Ariana Anahata (Anahata is the name of the heart chakra). My beautiful fiancĂ©e Angela and I welcomed her into the world on January 3rd, 2010. She is perfect and got a great start in life by us giving conscious consideration to our diet and health before her birth.

Recently, she got a little infection in one of her eyes. My first approach to fix her up - regular warm saline wash and application of coconut oil for its excellent natural germ fighting properties. It worked great, of course. Angela was worried about stretch marks during pregnancy so we started early - applying coconut oil to her belly religiously. Conclusion, no stretch marks! This stuff really works great for everything! After I shave, coconut oil. Toast in the morning, coconut oil! Stir-fry coconut oil! Nature's sports drink - fresh coconut water! I am probably preaching to the choir here. I could just go on and on about the benefits of coconut everything.

I’m also crazy about kombucha, also. Every day when I wake up, kombucha. Last thing before I go to sleep, kombucha. That is why I started a kombucha brewery here in Chicago; it’s called the Living Well Brewery. I also work with green restaurants, and have my own mobile (raw organic) juice bar with wheatgrass and various drink options that I occasionally set up for private events. I am in training to be a juice bar manager at a new green Greek restaurant. I am working with Midwest organic farms to promote local sales in Chicago. My goal is to change the way people feel about food. I am hoping that humanity will get to the point where our gifts of knowledge and wisdom from the generations of past will be shared freely with those of the generations to come and there will be abundance and bliss for all.

P.S. Coconut Bliss is the healthiest ice cream you can buy in my opinion. Vanilla is my favorite.

Thank you for reading!
Much bliss to all!

Introductions: Toby G.

Toby Gamberoni, our latest addition, is part of our Bliss sales team.

A Brit who has extensively traveled the world--often in a bizarre fashion, having hitched over half the planet--has fortunately ended up in the North West,  joining our Bliss family from January 2010. 

His motivation?  "This company is all about community, sharing, creativity, consciousness and fun!" Plus he loves the product: the Pineapple Coconut blew him away!

Toby and his family are all up for a better world, a better diet, healing, and the outdoors. They love to travel, hang with the dog, or get on the bike---you might well find Toby playing football (soccer) or mulling over his garden...regardless of the weather. 

In the face of its many environmental challenges, Toby has, from an early age,  had a concern for the fate of our planet. In addition to sales, he has taken on the role of Green Coordinator for Coconut Bliss. So, if you have any tips concerning the greener side of business, feel free to share them with us via Facebook, Twitter, or the comment thread on this blog post.

Introductions: Christina, Demonstration Coordinator

We have a couple new faces here at the Coconut Bliss offices, and we’d like to take this week’s blog to introduce you to Christina, our new Demonstration Coordinator.  

Christina started in October, and has been a huge fan of Coconut Bliss since the first time she tried a bliss shake at Red Barn with the Wild Lavender Blueberry during a hot summer day in 2005. “I’ve been watching Coconut Bliss grow ever since, and am so happy to join the wonderful people and friends who also work to spread the bliss.”

Christina’s passion for good food developed after moving to Oregon ten years ago. She graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Environmental Studies, with a heavy focus on sustainability in the food sector. "We live in such a unique place and time on this planet, and I'm so thankful to work in a community that supports so many sustainable natural foods businesses. For me, it's all about making choices and creating a new culture that is based on love, creativity, connection, and sharing an abundance of wonderful foods and ideas."

When she’s not hard at work planning demos for Coconut Bliss, you might also find her doing organizational work for a few local non-profits here in Eugene. She also likes to practice Nia, hula hooping, dancing, and often is found home brewing, wild fermenting, and making food with community and friends.
