Green smoothie feast

I have been thinking lately about doing a green smoothie feast. The more I add these smoothies into my daily life, the more that I feel convinced that I can do this, because I just love them. I am mostly writing this in blog format in hopes that I will find others here who have done this kind of feast. I'm not really sure where to find the best info on how to go about doing this sort of feast properly so that I get the right amount of nutrition.

Long ago, I read that it's important to…

Days 13-25 of my now 25-day Juice Fast, and day 1 of introducing food again

Those 13 days just flew by. The last one week I didn't loose any weight - I felt like an elevator, gaining and loosing a little bit of weight. In the end, this morning (28th Jan., day 26) I ended up 100 gr more than last Tuesday (21st Jan., day 19). I read an article yesterday, and maybe…

REDO/Restart: Beginning MOnday 27th of January.

Got a bit off track on journaling. A dear friend passed away this past week. Very sad. My friend in Chicago passed away yesterday morning.

Wish I could have helped her more. I will miss her greatly.

So my son and I have been going to the gym. It is tough to get out in the cold but it is worth it. He is being my accountability coach. I am paying him to do this and it is working for us both. ;O)

We are all working on eating healthier and establishing healthy habits. It has…

Day 2-4: A bit of a struggle getting back on track

My realization: I am in fact a sugar addict. Over the holidays, I did not do too bad but what i find is if I break over, even just a little bit, it is a real problem and turns into a monsterous cycle of craving sugar if I break that rule. So, this week I have been struggling a bit. I know I am not alone in this battle. What I have found is the first week of my 90 journey each time is about tightening the ropes, the first week is not even close to perfect. I find that increasing greens and…

All Domestic

The weather has been really cold here, and so we have been at home a lot for the past several weeks.  I have found it nice to have the time to focus on food preparation.  I've finally gotten into doing some fermenting which I've been meaning to do forever.  I made a type of sauerkraut, and made some cashew yogurt this week. I have the idea to try fermenting things I don't like to eat raw - like sweet potatoes and green beans.  

I've been dehydrating the nut pulp from making nutmilk,…

Long time no Rehab!

I have not made a post since March 2010, that is sad. Almost 4 years ago! A lot has happened in 4 years! I am not currently Raw but I have been strictly Vegan since August 2011...  I am getting ready to do a juice feast I will try to journal it here and keep everyone up on what and how I am doing!

In preparation for the Juice Feast I am juicing every morning, today I made Celery, Cucumber, Kale, Apple, Lemon and Ginger Juice :) I am thinking maybe Carrot-Orange tomorrow morning we…

Days 10-12 of my 30-day Juice Feast

During the last four days I am drinking pretty much juice. The weight loss however stopped. I know I should exercise. And I know it's hard just in the beginning. I just have to force myself to start, and the rest will follow. :)

Here is my daily intake:…

Day 1 : Of my third 90 health journey.

I like breaking my focus into 90 day intervals, and then taking a few days to sort of have a break and regroup. 

So this is day 1 and I am refocusing on my health goals. I really don't make new years resolutions, I only set goals. I feel like that is more productive for me and i think of them in shorter time frames. Although I do have long range and medium range goals, that I break down into weekly and daily goals. LIttle by little and day by day, tracking allows accomplishing those…

New Beginnings

Wow! It is 2014 and so much has happened since the last time I checked in here. The biggest and saddest thing is that my mom went to heaven on September 4 last year. I had moved in to take care of her starting in May, so I am in this weird situation where I am living in my mom and dads house but without them, because my dad is in hospice. It is very hard to be here without her. Everything I see reminds me of her, and I miss her so, so much every day.

Last year was plain awful. It was… Continue

Day 89 and 90

So I am making changes again. This is going to finish up my second health quest of 90 intervals. I had thought I would extend it now I am thinking I will just begin a new 90 days beginning tomorrow. I have not been able to stick with what I wanted on this one because of low funds and having to eat carbs I really did not want to eat but were cheap and so this time since I have a better job, I can eat more greens and do low carb again. 

So my part three, 90 day health quest will begin…

Day 4 of a 30-day Juice Feast!

This night I couldn't sleep very well. I was turning around all the time, and felt so warm in the morning (I think it's just because of the very warm pyjamas and the blankets). I felt better after lying for a while without being covered with blanket. I was a bit worried because of the kind of…

Day 2 of a 30-day Juice Feast

Day 2 was also good. I had a little bit of green tea with honey in the morning, and made one litre of Jay Kordich's Wintertime Detoxification Juice Tonic. I also had some water. Not that much as I planned to drink throughout the day, but will do better tomorrow. :)

Ingredients I used for the juice today:

Day 88: Gearing up for a great Monday

I am so thankful that I will be down to one job in two weeks! Monday I am back to the gym with my kids on board! It is more fun with others in involved in similar goals. They are also making an effort to eat better as well. I love it! 

Looking forward to a productive year of positive changes and focus on health.

I am going to allow them some gluten free foods such as a bread we just tried that is pretty good. the brand is Glutino. We have agreed that we are not going to have…
