Thank you to all,

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…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue
What an AMAZING WAY to get 1400 calories for the day!
I'm in "chocolate" Heaven!
We are dealing with another Chicago Weather Vortex (see picture below)! It's zero degrees here! Brrrrr!!! I'm dreaming of the tropics, and wanted something warm, desperately!!!
❄ 20 dates
❄ Hot or warm water (whatever you are comfortable with)
❄ 2 Tblsp of…
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…Continue

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,…Continue

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…Continue
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:…Continue

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…Continue

Unfortunately, this morning I didn't have time to make juice for the day.

In the afternoon I had white tea with honey and a little bit of lemon-ginger…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
Today I planned to have orange-lemon juice, but it turned out I didn't make any juice, apart form some lemon juice.
So, in the morning I had warm water with lemon juice. During the day I had a cup of white tea with some honey and some green tea with lemon juice. I also drank lots of…Continue
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:

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.
