juice feast

Day#3 Feeling Better #juicefeast

I'm sitting at my desk drinking cilantro, pear,  red bell pepper and mustard greens and watching Marie Forleo talk to Mastin Kipp about living and finding your purpose.

I feel pretty good right now, but last night I ate a little food. Not a meal or anything, but I did feel better afterwards.  I just wanted to chew something.

I woke up this morning determined to finish this feast.  As much as I want to eat, I want to detox even more.  I refuse to give up.

I've decided that when this feast is over, I will eat mostly raw vegan for the rest of the month. Lots of HUGE fresh salads, smoothies, fresh juice, raw nuts and seeds.  I figure if I can survive on liquids for 5 days, eating unlimited fruits and vegetables should be a lot less difficult.

We're heading out in a bit to replenish our veggie stash. We're getting lots of kale, celery, cilantro, lemon and cucumbers. Eric is still going strong with fresh juice and water!

I hope you're having a great day.

We Bought A Juicer!

I talked so much trash about my previous juicer that I made sure to get one that would last longer than 6 months. I love my smoothies but my desire to get a juicer came after watching Hungry for Change (available on Netflix Instant) the other night. I mentioned to Eric that we should get a juicer and do a juice feast. He encouraged it and was instantly on board!

I went back and forth between this Breville juicer (used in the documentary Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead) and the Omega J8006. I decided on the Breville after reading reviews and for the less bulky design. I also wasn't a fan of the small opening on the Omega.  I felt it would take too long to chop pieces of fruit and vegetables to get through the chute.

I'm ready to get my socks rocked off with some juicing!

The juice feast will start on Friday, January 11th

Will you join us? If you don't own a juicer, I made a video showing how to make fresh juice using a blender and nut bag.

We plan to document our juice feast on my Youtube channel and here on the blog. Be sure to subscribe to stay up to date. :-)

Disclaimer: If you buy the juicer using the link above, I will get a couple of cents from Amazon. Of course, I would never recommend something that I wouldn't use myself. :-)
