Happy Valentine's Day from your Coach!

Hello, hello, hello! It has been a whirlwind once again (then again, when is it not?!) with amazing new projects now well underway for the coming year!

I am spending Valentine's Day 2012 here in sunny San Francisco - and you?

It's going to be a busy day of meetings and interviews until we get to party, but I will be walking to and from everything (and parking my car extra far away) so that I can indulge a little more tonight, 100% guilt-free :)

Of course, as always, we have the best-kept secrets for your hot dinner date tonight - check out our LeBootCamp culinary secrets for your valentine!

And to top that off, here's a bonus special appetizer which you can serve up tonight, accompanied by celery and fennel sticks which are natural aphrodisiacs! A Senegalese friend actually shared this tonic and refreshing drink that he enjoys back in his country under the shade of a mango tree :). This drink is a true gift!

Senegalese Ginger Spice Drink

1 large piece of ginger, unpeeled
¾ liter of water
½ tsp salt
6 tbsp raw unrefined sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp grated nutmeg
¼ lime

Soak the ginger in water to soften it. Then dry and grate it.
Add all ingredients except the lime to the ¾ liter of water and let stand for 45 mins.
Filter with a fine sieve and add the lime juice and a pinch of celery salt.
Add a little amber rum to give it a kick.

To life, love, and health!
