Good afternoon juicers I am heading to the desert a day early so tomorrow. It is supposed to storm here with the worst starting tonight, then a break in the morning hours then full steam ahead, they are expecting 5 inches in my areas just on Thursday. So we want to leave during the break in the storm. I am all packed and I made 2 kinds of juice I had a whole pineapple so I made 6 servings of Hawaiian Pear, and then I had lots of carrots and beets, so I made a juice of those plus lemons, spinach, ginger, kale, and 2 granny smith apples. It was really delicious and lemony!
I cleaned the house yesterday and the fridge today so we come home to a clean house. All I have to do is pack my computer and go tomorrow.
I love coming home to a tidy home. It’s lovely. Sounds like you are set for good adventures!
Hi Juicers! I went on a juicing spree yesterday and it was fabulous. I felt so elated. I used butternut squash for the 1st time (I'm on day 8) and it was delicious. I had never thought their juice would be so creamy! I also made a strawberry, raspberry, spinach, and granny smith...Yums! I wonder what I'll have for dinner???
Thanks, Intensehealth. For the suggestion of butternut squash -- I had not thought to juice that! I have one sitting in the kitchen. :)
Your other juice sounds great, too! Congrats on Day 8!! Whoo hoo for you!! :)
I love butternut squash in juice it really is good!
Delicious. I'll have to try butternut squash! Congrats!
Good morning Juicers! I made juices yesterday as planned then went to pick up my grandson for the day. I am enjoying the Grapefruit apple celery juice right now as I type away on the computer. Food matters is having a 7 day Food Matters Cleanse starting April 11. If you are not an FMTV subscriber you can subscribe and cancel, they have a free trial just cancel before. There are many motivational documentaries and videos available to watch as well. So even if you subscribe for a month $7.95 you will get your money's worth and can cancel at the end of them month. I signed up for the cleanse, I am ending this juice fast on the 22nd when we head to the desert. I will still make juices while I am there, I just won't be doing a full reboot. And I will be home before the Food matters cleanse which will consist of juices, smoothies, and soups.
Good Morning, Juicers! Planning my juicing today.
GREEN: I really liked the kiwi-added green juice yesterday -- repeating that first. (A second batch of ingredients is already waiting ready to go other than peeling lemon. Easy for Monday's. )
V8: I think I need to make another savoury juice, heavy on tomatoes and celery. To cut the sugar consumption.
PURPLE: That would be enough to be going on with but I have some beets that need to be juiced; usually combine those with carrots, and may while I'm at it add in some sweet potatoes...
ORANGE: ... but I'm thinking I may separate those into a beet/carrot and some of that carrot cake recipe which was so yummy.
Those juices will put a big dent into my produce on hand.
[ SPOILER ALERT - SOLID FOOD MENTIONED BELOW... ]
Monday mornings seems to be settling into a routine of food production. I have yoga to look forward to in the afternoon, so there's a time limit to what I can do amongst Monday house blessings.
SALAD. For the family, I'm off to finish making up some cruciferous salad mix for lunches. Much of the cabbages and such is already shredded, just will add kale and parsley for one, romaine for the post-wisdom-teeth removal sensitive mouth (wonder when that is going away, but kale seems to scratch).
SOUP. Then, later today, if supplies run low, or tomorrow, we'll use the instant pot to make either a lentil or a low-sodium veg soup and jar it up for the fridge. (Got that process refined down to a very efficient production method if anyone else has a need to feed family vegan -- PM me. ) Drinking the broth from that is very helpful if hunger hits.
BEANS. Hmm, I may also get some black beans soaking; again, jar them in the fridge. And some cooked quinoa for under soup/beans/chili. Toasted some quinoa in the iron skillet yesterday as a salad topper.
Ingredients:1/2 head of green cabbage
8 celery stalks
2 green apples
mean bunny rabbit juice
I didn't know the Easter Bunny was Mean!
well, you know!! cabbage patch thing.
soose- I have seen so many changes!! I’ve lost 42 pounds. And I’ve experienced clear skin better vision and the ability to heal my plantar fasciitis. Which has enabled me to start running again. Thank you for asking.
Day 4. Vent alert. Thinking that toxins are coming out of me, my face is breaking out and I've got a fever blister brewing, I know nice. LOL. If I don't laugh I'll cry.
Trying to get my oldest packed for his trip to NYC, it's his second trip (with his class) but I'm just as nervous this time as the last. Can't we keep them safe in our protective bubbles forever? :/
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. POOF positive vibes to all.

@Good vibes, did you make it thru day 4? Hang in there. The only way thru detox is thru. You've reminded me of my first water only fast. I was told our body only has 2 ways to get rid of detox -- thru the colon or thru the skin. I found when detoxing that sweat carries detoxing stuff thru the skin, and if I didn't take showers to wash off any sweat, I'll itch and break out.
Use fruit and veg that contain L-Lysine to help combat the fever sore. Google it. Positive thought and vibrations heading your way! And find a nice cleanser for your skin that you like, I went through the same thing i use Aveeno Positively radiant to cleanse with now. Someone once told me that if you use your ear wax on a cold sore it will heal more quickly. I don't know if it is true or not.
********FOOD is mentioned here*********
Thanks Soose and Leslie for your support and advice.
I did make it through day 4 but I broke my fast on day 5. The final straw that broke me was the spinach I was juicing into my mean green. I was craving the taste of a salad soooooo bad and was devastated when I saw how little juice came out of the spinach. I just wanted to face dive into a delicious salad and the only juices I was drinking were fruit based and I know I can't just live off of fruit. It's all mind games I realize. I'll just be better prepared for my next go at it.
I'm still here darnit and will keep juicing! :)
Whoo hoo! First Juice of the Morning. Very green for St. Pat's Day. <G> (Ok, belatedly.)
I bet this is packed with Vitamin C! Had my fill and put aside two 15oz bottles for me or for guys when they appear.
... 3 Kiwi, 2 apples (one granny, one sweet) & double handful raw cranberries
... 1 peeled lemon
... 1 large cucumber and gobs of dandelion with lacinato kale and parsley.
Notes: Very good actually. :) I haven't juiced kiwi's before. Even though they were not real ripe or sweet, I like them. I did not peel the kiwi's -- realized the recipe I had taken a gander at was for a smoothie, thence the peeling recommendations. But I'd seen SunnyRain's photos this morning and her kiwi's weren't peeled. So glad I didn't. However, I'm glad I peeled the lemon this time. (Have been not peeling lemons but thinking I need to now.)
I use very little of the lemon and orange peel, and never the grapefruit peel because it is more bitter.
Another day to juice! I ate regular food yesterday and had a great day, now back to juicing! I did some shopping Friday so the fridge is well prepared for some lovely juices. My grandson is spending the day with us today so I will be picking him up later this morning. He has been sick, he has pneumonia, so we will paint today and read books and maybe watch a movie. He is not quite 3 and so his attention span for the movies is not there yet, so we start watching a movie then finish it another time. We started minions Thursday. Going to go make some juice! I need to be ready for the day!
@Leslie, so sorry your little grandson is sick. Pneumonia! Scary! I gather he's on the mend since a couple of days ago or so, you were holding him while he slept.
I just want to say, you are like our own Super Bungie Cord here on this list! You keep on bouncing! <G> (I mean after your day out yesterday, back to juicing! Whoo hoo! )
Good Morning Buddies! I read through all of the posts below, and wanted to recommend FMTV. They have a 10 day trial period and you can cancel right after the trial if you don't want to keep watching their movies. They have some really inspiring movies, plus some guided programs, and foods about healthy diet and eating which can help you plan your path at the end of a reboot. On April 11 a new series is starting called Food as Medicine that I really want to watch. And they also have a 5 day raw food program that i want to follow as well.
Documentaries that are currently showing are Food Matters, SuperJuiceMe, Hungry for Change, Heal Yourself, Dr. Furhman's Eat like a Nutritarian (for those wanting to follow Joe Furhman's program), FS&ND for those who want to see it again or haven't seen it, and American Meat. There is an upcoming Detox and cleanse guided workshop program as well.
