After watching the movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, by Joe Cross on HULU. I thought about doing a juice feast but just wasn't ready for it. Now this was almost a year ago. Then since I have been weeding out the process foods out of the families diet and especially mine I watched it again. Deciding that this is what I needed right now at this time in my life.
I had been doing some juicing off and on but at least once a week. I have noticed the difference in when I drink juice and when I don't.
Well I have been wanting a Vitamix machine for a long while now and I have had some money being put aside just in case I had a big purchase item. Well I found at the Vitamix website and I found that they have reconditioned one for cheaper but you can still get a 5 year warranty. I ordered mine but got the extended 8 year warranty for just a little bit more.
Isn't it beautiful!
So me having OCD issues I waited till today to start using it on my first day of my Juice Feast. Most people would call this a juice fast but I feel that I am still getting my nutrition just not having to chew it. I will be adding physllium and a fruit protein powder to my juices at least once a day. Just to make sure I am getting enough fiber and nutrition.
This morning I made my breakfast that consisted of : banana, orange slices, pine apple core, carrot, homemade yogurt (sugar free), ice and physllium. Now I am going to listen to my body if it is needing something besides the juice I will listen to it. I think this has been one of my problems in the past is NOT listening to what my body needs or wants.
I couldn't believe how quickly this thing chopped and mixed everything together.
Looking into orange tropical goodness
And my breakfast of a champion (ME) yummy!!
I have been dealing with an ear infection for over a month and just this past week it has gotten really painful and closed up for a day. After much sleeping off and on, Reiki, then using oils, hot moist compresses it is feeling a little bit better today. I will continue to do what I am doing and hopefully by the end of this week it will be completely gone.
For today I need to run errands, make yogurt, wash and Monday chores. My might do list is make curtains for our bedroom and do some independent studying.
Everyone have a wonderful day. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
