    We spent the day outside enjoying Spring like weather. I am so grateful for the sun this weekend given that the past week has been cloudy. This weekend is a legislated long weekend in my part of the world. There were so many happy faces out and about. I think what is great about this relative new secular holiday that celebrates family, is that no traditions are attached, so families enjoy being together with no pressures about meals, decorations, shopping, gifts, except the gift of each other. Happy Family Day.

    Hi all!



    I'm brand new to the group, as I'm on Day 50 of a 60 day Reboot! With the end in sight, I've been looking to what my next steps will look like. I would love to hear from folks who have been down this road before who can offer any advice as to approach "life after the Reboot!"



    I've been putting a plan together for me to follow: my intention is to stick to this for days 61-90, to keep up the positive structure the Reboot has provided me while also gaining some of what I know I'll need to be able to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I'd love to hear if you have any suggestions for anything it would be best for me to consider adding to this!



    Here is the plan I have so far:



    1. Healthily transition back to solids and a more normal way of eating, supplemented by continued juicing. Transition slowly from veggie only to introducing fish, to chicken, and then to beef, as my body allows. Consider juicing 2 meals a day and eating 1 meal a day for at least the first 10-14 days, or until my body feels it is right.



    2. Take this time to experiement and discover how to make many different micronutrient-dense meals: salads, soups, veggie bowls and "veggie replacement meals" (recreating tastes I already love but making more vegetarian-based versions of them). The goal here is to definitively develop a set stable of healthy recipes that I'll be able to fall back on from now on, kind of like the comfort zone I've developed doing the Reboot, no matter what I choose going forward.



    3. Confront and figure out my own boundaries for how (or if) to integrate the "pleasure" foods from my past into a new healthy lifestyle (what role will pizza play? Which of those old foods can I trust myself to have in moderation, and which have to go into the "I don't eat that anymore" category? How will I approach events where eating a lot is part of the point: like certain kinds of parties or holidays, or dinners out at restaurants? And what would moderation even look like for me?)



    4. Finally, impose a concrete rule: when I feel stressed, absolutely no turning to food. I've been doing it on the juice fast, so I'll need to know how to keep this up while on food, too!



    This is what I have so far. Let me know what you think!

    Wow, Dan, that is a great plan. I will find the best site on stress and post it shortly.

    Here it is Stress topics The article 'How to hunt a mammoth without getting trampled' provides the best framework for analyzing our stressors and provides a working model for dealing with it.

    When stress is high, I turn on the music and dance as if no one is watching. And the great thing is that it can be done anywhere. Studies support dance, music (some genres may be counterproductive) and singing to reduce stress. Happy dancing!

    Dan. Sounds like a well researched plan, and similar to the one I followed after my 100 day JO Reboot. The one odd craving that never came back for me, after the long reboot, was for alcohol. I was never a big drinker, but did enjoy a glass of wine on Saturday nights with friends or a beer at sports games. But it just tastes uninteresting now and I swell up afterwards. I think it is the sulfites or yeast. Not sure, but just do not enjoy the after effects.

    Congrats on the wonderful research you did and to your juicing success.

    Finally made the leap and ordered my FasciaBlasters! SO psyched!!!

    This is a terrific article for me. I am printing this one off and trying the fascia stretches they recommended. The one called "THE WORLD'S GREATEST STRETCH" was developed by Sue Falsone a physical therapist in Phoenix. I am definitely going to look into visiting her. I have old car accident injuries that still affect my posture due to fascia damage. Also, I signed up for the Experience Life Magazine email updates i have not heard of this magazine before, and it does look very interesting. Thanks so much for sharing another phenomenal resource. You are my ROSE number 2 for today. I am the luckiest person in the world to have found you all.

    Happy Friday Everyone. Thank you Sophie for this excellent link to the Science of Yoga, and also to these Podcasts. I have never heard of Uplift and could spend a couple days listening to their great topics. You have gifted me with wisdom today. Thank you, thank you, thank you......

    Sophie, I will watch it later. The site that has the video has interesting articles on inflammatory diseases, holistic approaches to healing and movement. I have bookmarked it . Thanks Sophie, you refer us to such interesting sites.

    I was reminded, while watching the video, of a college friend whom at age ten was diagnosed with childhood depression. His doctor,rather than prescribe drugs, taught him yoga. He went on to have a successful career both as an educator and an artist. Meditation, slowed breathing, exercise, and community come from yoga, as well as Tai Chi and Pilates from my personal experiences.

    Made this for bookclub last night and it was a hit. The avocado butter was great over the gluten free loaf wth smoked salmon and cucumber. Both recipes follow:

    Dahlia, I am making both of these today. Just reading them got my saliva going. I have everything for the avocado butter, and will look for the almond flour and coconut flour today. Thank you so much for leading the way, with such great recipes. It would have taken me hours to find them on my own.

    This was a surprise. Don't know how to verify this information as I do not have access to this stuff, but here are some health benefits of juicing raw cannabis.

  • Dahlia

    Along with legalization of Cannabis in many countries comes big business growing it, and studies promoting its use for every possible health issue. I wonder if the studies were sponsored by corporate growers. Even if we live in a country where one can obtain it legally, we must be carefuI. I would suggest caution and a sceptical read of the original studies before juicing. Let's not forget that corporate growers want more users (growth and profits attract investors) and 'studies' work when aimed at specific populations with tenacious and recurring issues such as fibromyalgia, brain fog, environmental allergies and weight gain.Wondering if it is the same pseudoscience that promoted fat free diets that made corporate rich and its clients fat and sick! I would like to be a fly at their marketing promotion meetings.

    I am not a marijuana user, but big business involvement concerns me. Random tests conducted recently in California showed mold and other nasties present in too many samples collected. Frightens me for the health of the people who use it, especially those who are already sick.

    Sophie, sorry to hear the wrist FITBITT is annoying to wear. Is it too tight? Is the wrist band rubber or plastic? several years ago I had a Body Buggy that is worn on the upper arm. That worked for me because things on my wrist don't. I am always taking wrist items off and then I lose them. Body Buggy was bought by another company, so I need to look them up and see if they still have their devices available. It worked really well for me.
