    I have just completed my 4th week of the 5-week juice fast, and I have lost 15.6 pounds so far and a total of 9.75 inches across 6 measurements so far. I now have slightly less than 10 pounds left to lose with one more week to go.

    I found a wonderful summary of health flour substitutions for those of you who want to try healthier formulas in your cooking. If you try them, let me know how they work for you. Enjoy.



    ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR BLEND: Use this blend for all of your gluten-free baking. ½ cup rice flour, ¼ cup tapioca starch/flour, ¼ cup cornstarch or potato starch.



    HIGH-FIBER FLOUR BLEND: This high-fiber blend works well for breads, pancakes, snack bars, and cookies that contain chocolate, warm spices, raisins, or other fruits. It is not well-suited for delicately flavored recipes, such as sugar cookies, crepes, cream puffs, birthday cakes, or cupcakes. 1 cup brown rice flour or sorghum flour, ½ cup teff flour (preferably light), ½ cup millet flour or Montina® flour, 2/3 cup tapioca starch/flour, 1/3 cup cornstarch or potato starch.



    HIGH-PROTEIN FLOUR BLEND: This nutritious blend works best in baked goods that require elasticity, such as wraps and pie crusts. 1 1/4 cups bean flour – chickpea is a fabulous choice, 1 cup arrowroot starch, cornstarch, or potato starch, 1 cup tapioca starch/flour, 1 cup white or brown rice flour



    SELF-RAISING FLOUR BLEND: Use this blend for muffins, scones, cakes, cupcakes, or any recipe that uses baking powder for leavening. 1 1/4 cups white sorghum flour, 1 1/4 cups white rice flour, 1/2 cup tapioca starch/flour, 2 teaspoons xanthan or guar gum, 4 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt.



    GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR USING XANTHAN/GUAR GUM: Gum (xanthan or guar) is the key to successful gluten-free baking. It provides the binding needed to give the baked product proper elasticity and keep it from crumbling. Add 1/2 teaspoon xanthan or guar gum per cup of flour blend to make cakes, cookies, bars, muffins, and other quick breads. Add 1 teaspoon per cup of flour blend to make yeast bread, pizza dough, or other baked items that call for yeast.



    If you purchase a commercial flour blend, read the ingredient list carefully. Some blends contain salt and xanthan or guar gum. If so, there is no need to add more.

    Happy Friday Healthy Friends! My morning got off to a unusual start when my 15 year old kitty kat (Emma) brought in to the house a little baby quail. Thank goodness I was right there, and was able to separate Emma from the baby quail quickly. I put Emma in a closed bathroom, and followed the little baby quail running through the living room and the bedroom. I was able to capture her and place in a safe cushioned container. I then walked around the neighborhood until I caught up with the momma quail and her other little baby chicks. I was able to get close enough to reunite the lost baby with her momma. Whew......what a way to start the morning. My cat was in the backyard, which is enclosed so the little baby must have squeezed under the patio gate (very small opening). Unfortunately, my cat was outside sleeping in her bed and heard the chirps. It is spring here, and all the quail eggs are hatching so I will keep Emma in for a month or two until the babies have learned how to fly. Have a great weekend everyone.

    I used to have cats too, but I lose my last one a few years ago. I remember my Siamese cat, Mittens, when I was a kid bring in mice he had caught out in the corn fields near where we used to live in Iowa. He seemed to think he was bringing us gifts. My mom was not of the same opinion. :)

    Wow, honest writing really does expose your inner demons. I was just posting on my wall about Day 6 of breaking the fast, and it hit me I may have traded a habit of over-eating for a habit of under-eating. I'm finding it very difficult to get myself to increase calories because I don't want my weight loss to slow down. My birthday is coming up in 15 days, and I've got serious plans for a couple of indulgent meals. Meals that I've been planning, plotting and fantasizing about for say... only the last 100 days! I will have to summon my inner policeman to take over. I must increase calories by at least 50 each day. Otherwise, how will I eat them?! I don't know. Maybe I just need to go strong and hard until I hit my weight loss goal - which would be another 55 pounds. Maybe that's what I really want. I'm so done with being fat all my life. 40 years! Maybe I just need to get there and then, at that point, I will once again become sane?

    Hello Anna, don't worry about under-eating. The Reboot nutritionist say that our stomachs do not technically get smaller, but it does feel that way after coming off a long successful reboot like yours. For me, the under-eating was because my body got used to eating healthy high density juices every day and all my body's nutritional needs were met successfully. If you are continuing to eat and juice primarily fruit and veggies, all your body's nutritional needs will be met and you will not need to overeat to get there. How many calories are you eating post-reboot? How did you factor the 50 calories extra per day? What is your maximum calorie goal? Check out this Huffington post article, as it may be helpful. If not, let me know and I will find other Reboot Nutritionist articles for you. You are doing great, and I am right there with you about being 'done with being fat'. Congrats.......

    Another article states: "Although juicing doesn't actually shrink the stomach, it does temporarily eliminate the possibility to eat for comfort. The upshot of that is that you will feel satiated with less food than usual, immediately after you’re done with the cleanse. This situation can provide a big psychological boost that some people need to experience so that they can change their eating behaviors and stop sabotaging their weight loss.

    Hello RM, Sophie, Cheri

    I am well and working hard in garden and on projects. I have decided to take a break from social media until September as it seems to drain my time. I am looking forward to a sculpting class over one week in June.

    I wish you all a great summer. Keep safe and healthy.

    Happy Tuesday Everyone! I have been reading some articles on Ayurvedic Medicine and learned that they recommend drinking warm to hot water, and not cold water. The study said that warm to hot water is more hydrating. I had not read this before, and was wondering if others follow these recommendations and have noticed a difference. This is an interesting idea, and would be easy to implement if warm/hot water is a benefit. I look forward to your feedback.



    "Cold water is not as good for hydration as room temperature. The theory is that the cold water causes the blood vessels surrounding stomach to shrink, slowing absorption. The problem is that as the COLD drinks pass through our system, they solidify the fats from the foods we have just eaten or are eating at present. This makes it challenging for the body to digest and disperse the unwanted fats from our body. However, if we simply swap our cold drinks for a warm drink (warm water/coffee/tea/herbals) the warm fluids help the fats in our foods to remain fluid and so easing the digestive system and helping the fats pass through our body (and reduce the risk of clogged arteries).

    It makes sense since our bodies are warm. It seems that with meals at least we should have warm drinks instead of cold to keep the fats moving.

    I always drink hot or room temperature water as I drink boiled water. Boiling water removes the chlorine, so I always take my water from the kettle.
