Does anyone here juice wild grass? I just heard about doing it today but I have been hearing about eating wild edibles for awhile now. As soon as I got home today I went out and cut some grass and juiced it. I have never had wheatgrass juice before, so I have nothing to compare it to. What else is growing out there that I can take advantage of? Any thought?
Hey there everybody, 20 days and 20 pounds gone. I'm feeling good and lighter. Starting weight 261 and now I am 241. Yes, yes, yes. I'm feeling more encouraged because, my body pain has decreased by about 50-60%. I'm walking some without my cane. That's a miracle. Walking without my cane!!!! It's so much easier to get up from a chair, toliet, bed, etc now.Had a big water weight loss in the beginning but,I'm now losing about 1/2 pound a day. At first I was kind of bummed…Continue
Well, it's day 11 and I'm down 17 pounds. I'm so excited,because I believe that I will be able to change my eating lifestyle for good this time.I've been messed up mentally since Sunday, I was weepy and full off fear about me continuing without messing up. It was all self-sabotage, something that always gets me down. I revealed how I was feeling to some friends and they unbeknownst to me (until a couple…Continue

Today I went out on a limb. I found a recipe online that talked about making a "burger' out of the remnants of the juice. However, I didn't like the idea of having to add eggs to make the burger bind together. Nor did the ingredients sound like they would POP much in terms of flavor. However, the idea of making a burger from the remnants stuck with me.
I kept thinking about it, but had no real plan so, I opened the fridge and picked some vegetables out three…
Ingredients: Some good apples that you know make juice taste like cider (I know there's different varieties--I've had them!! I just can't remember what they are right now!), or just some cider that has no other ingredients added other than apples :)
Chai tea bags (a preservative free brand that you like :) )
Juice the apples (or don't if you bought pre-made cider!). Then slowly heat up in a pot on the stove (or for 20-60 seconds in the microwave, if you're like me and think…Continue

My Wheatgrass Juice recipe will BLOW YOU AWAY! Proteins! Amino Acids! You name it... WOW! I totally made this and DOWNED it after HAMMERING through my Insanity workout! Bring it? Consider it BRUNG! And then I drank this!
Okay... so what is inside?
My Wheatgrass Juice
17 grams of Wheatgrass
4 ouces of water
2 Fuji apples
My wife says I can consume anything because sometimes I just drink it. I tell her, "In thirty seconds it will be gone and I'll get all the nutrients and vitamins from it. Then, I just won't make it again."
My wife is eating well and juicing from time to time to help her get more nutrients and vitamins in her body. Much better than just eating breads, processed foods, noodles, etc... This way she is getting a bit of both.
She started with a…

Just wanted to share these photos. I'm new on here and am inspired to lose 84 pounds! I ballooned up to 252! I was 166! My inspiration came from watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. I blogged about my inspiration and what got me started.
On my blog you can also see my posts with my blood lab work results, as I raised my good cholesterol 30 points and my 'bad' is so good that the doctor said I am…Continue
I have been dormant on here for quite some time and I thought I'd give a quick little update :)
I have been juice feasting since October through all the major holidays! I did a 30 day last year over the holidays as well, I don't know....maybe a tradition I am subconsciously starting?? It has had it's ups and downs with the detoxing and the emotions...good gravy the emotions! The time seems to have flown by in a sense as I have been keeping myself pretty busy.…Continue
Tonight, I put wheat berries , black oil sunflower and spotted peas to soak. Tomorrow will be my first time growing my very own wheat grass. I'm so excited! I will have a hard time waiting for that wonderful sweet grass to mature for juicing. I love when my apartment is full of sprouts!

For me to reread tomorrow...
Do it now. What's the worst that can happen? What's going to happen to you? Nothing.
But I'm craving _(for me lately it's been sweet potatoes)_ and that's even healthy!
No. For filling warmth, drink ginger tea. What you want is that glorious empty refreshed feeling. That feeling like nothing can…Continue

Made a gorgeous juice today based on a recipe from a Foodie Friday here on RFR :) I believe it was called, "Sweet Fennel?"
I have to say I added a carrot that regretfully changed the color to something much less beautiful, so no doubt another unimpressive juice to the boyfriend. Doh!! Maybe I could get him to try it but I still don't think it's as magical as other juices I've made, although I do LOVE it and it's one of my favorites...…Continue
So here I am on my day 5 of my juice feast! Feeling buzzing and tired at the same time. After watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead I decided to juice for 10 days! I think this particular movie is making to do juice feast everyone after watching it J
Since my return to UK from Pakistan, I was struggling to get back to my raw diet, I would bite here and there, and I was not feeling great. Also I have put back few kilos and I was not happy about it either. So I decided to…Continue

I'm starting my first juice fast this weekend. I'm going to do it for five days and then do an evaluation and see how I feel to decide if I should continue it for an additional four days- the duration of spring break. I have two primary reasons for undertaking this adventure.
1) My digestion is very sensitive and I'm hoping that this will promote some healing. After I am done with the cleanse, I am going to focus on not eating at night in the hopes that my body…Continue
