Who cares if it’s a fad, I feel RAD!!!

What makes a person want to add Juicing to their lifestyle? Well, for me…it was because my Godfather just watched the movie “Fat, sick and nearly dead”. He was inspired and said he wanted to juice for 2 weeks. So, we ALL jumped on the juice train with him. To prepare for such an adventure I cleaned out the fridge…I pretty much threw EVERYTHING out and started over. I went to the store and bought a HUGE list of produce. When last Monday arrived I was quite excited and ready! There’s an AMAZING amount of cleaning of produce and then cutting, then juicing and then CLEANING the juicer out. I’m not gonna lie, the first 2 days were hard and I started to see stars!!! I felt VERY lightheaded and HUNGRY!!!! Then we decided to add a salad and black bean burgers as 1 meal instead of juicing. By the 4th day I bounced out of bed with TONS of energy. image

It’s now day 7, I have lost 5 pounds. William has lost 6 pounds and David has lost 10!!! For me, this has been great for my energy level. I feel FANTASTIC! What I notice is that I don’t crave a lot of fried foods or white foods much anymore. I don’t even crave CHOCOLATE! What? Seriously. Why is that? I used to go and buy the SAME juice everyday from Whole Foods. My favorite was carrot, apple and ginger. Well NOW that I’m juicing several times a day, I’m experimenting with different combinations. BUT, I have to say, I REALLY enjoy watermelon juice. The blueberry, grape, spinach, ginger and apple comes second. It’s SOOO fun to open the fridge and see a rainbow of colors! Speaking of colors….Q. What did the green grape say to the purple grape? A. Breathe! Breathe!

Ya know what’s a little weird…but I’m NOT complaining…a side effect of all this is…my creative JUICES are flowing!!!! I was feeling pretty dried up for a while there. Maybe it’s just a coincidence. For example: my research in finding the best and upscale jokes have stepped up a notch… Q. What’s invisible and smells like carrots? A. Bunny farts.

    1. Hi Paula, the juicer I have is a Jack Lalanne version. There are so many different ones. I’ve heard people talk about “slow” juicers being good too. If you haven’t seen the documentary “Fat, sick and nearly dead”, you might like it. There’s a whole movement about it. Just type that in and you’ll find recipes. There’s a website called “7 day juice fast” that is a nice guideline. I recommend taking a few days off where you don’t have to exert a lot of energy when you start it. Gentle walking, stretching…all gentle.

  1. I love my juicer, although maybe it is time to get back on doing two meals a day with it. I really hate cleaning the darn thing though! I just need to remind myself of how blessed I am to have electricity, fridge, and an abundance of fruits and veggies. Many in the world would be envious. Love you Sissy!

  2. I have a few friends who have all purchased the Magic Bullet recently and are very happy with it. I guess it pulverizes and you get all of the goodness rather than having stuff that’s leftover and gets put in the compost. I am toying with the idea of getting one when I can save up the $$ 🙂

  3. Guess what! I actually met Jack Lalaine-in a chinese restaurant! Ahahahaha! He was super nice and told everybody to be healthy! Random, I know.

    1. Did you really Mari??? That’s Very cool. He’d be on my top 10 people to meet list. Too bad he’s not around anymore. What about that guy Paul Bragg??? I heard there was controversy about what age he actually died. Oh yeah…also random. Hmm…are we related??? : )
