"An apple a day keeps the doctors away" Fresh and live is the way to go...!
Eat well, move your body, feed your mind.
I keep hearing the same question when I bring up Juice fasting or Juice "FEASTING". Is fasting healthy? Well I have decided to feed my mind as well as my body and do a little MORE research. I found this site that I thought was interesting. It talks a bit about how we as a species fed ourselves and how fasting is a natural way for our bodies to go into healing mode.
I have been reading and not logging my food intake so I will do day 7 now and day 8 later today. I started my day with a glass of water, as is becoming a habit of mine. I made a wonderful fruit and veggie smoothie made of;
3 hand fulls of spinach 3 hand fulls of kale 3 spears of celery 2 apples 2 spears of pineapple 1 banana 1 frozen banana 6 strawberries 1/2 a scoop of vegan vitamin supplement 1 hand full of ice
Yummy green goodness...it is funny because the green smoothies look awful at first, but with all the fruit it tastes so good! I grazed on 2 liters of this all morning and afternoon.
I had a 2 oz shot of Wheetgrass from the juice bar. I juiced a mixture of;
apples carrots celery beets small piece of ginger
* it tastes amazing and is so colorful because of the beets!
Dinner was a bit difficult I admit because the rest of the family had Spaghetti, which is my most favorite food ever! Sigh...but I resisted and ate a huge salad made of;
Butter lettuce Celery Carrots Tomatoes Cucumber Snap peas Red and Yellow pepper Topped with almonds and sunflower seeds
It was good, I survived after all...*giggle* I felt better than I had been feeling lately. My hair is getting more shiny, and my skin is fresher and more pink, my eyes are brighter, and I feel 'Alive' inside. My mood is much better than it has been the past 11 years...( that sounds awful I know, but true). I am happy. YEY! Have a great day you beautiful beings!
I am a beautiful soul filled with light..looking to touch others with sunshine..and when I am down I trust that my friends will share their light with me. Such is the web of life, so I believe..I also believe in treating others, as I would like to be treated..I believe in Karma. I believe in forgiveness..even when it is hard to do...I believe in beauty within people..I see the best in others..and try to work on making myself the best "Me" I can be right at this moment...I believe in appreciating the moment..and letting those around me know they are special to me. Tomorrow may never come...live for the moment...just "Be". I try not to worry ...it does not change anything positively..I try to be Positive and happy..I respect and love those around me. I believe that energy should flow in a healthy way. Learning to give and to recieve is a beautiful thing..The most important thing is to care about the things that truely matter....appreciate the moments that make it all worth while..watch the sunset...and sunrise...watch the moon grow big in the sky...
Tommorow may never come..soak up today!
