OK … one more goodie from Dr. Fuhrman … his food pyramid.

Planning ahead for my life post-fast.


Day 13: 7/7/12

7 Jul

Hi hi … OK, so this has nothing to do with juicing … but it’s cool. We visited the new Nature Research Center in Raleigh. Very cool place … you should go 🙂

And yes … today was another wonderful day full of juice. While grocery shopping today, I made it a point to buy locally-grown produce. It was a bit more expensive, but it’s nice knowing these foods were on the vine longer and were allowed to ripen naturally, instead of being picked before ripe in some other state and sprayed with ethylene gas while on their way to the market.

And for “dessert” … yumm yummmm yummmyyyy cantelope, plums, and apple juice. What a treat!

Day 12: 7/6/12

6 Jul

Still losing weight … still feeling great … and my pants are falling off of my butt. My weight this morning was 196.5. That’s almost 14 pounds so far … even more if you count my pre-fast prep time.

My lunchtime juice today was so colorful. Romain lettuce, celery, apple, orange, ginger root, tomatoes, and plums … I love me some plums!

And … OMG … I watched Food Inc. last night. Even if only half of the data are true, our food industry is in a heck of a mess.

Day 11: 7/5/12 — The Veggie Life (is it for me?)

5 Jul

Looking forward to post-juice-fast (I know … still 20 days away) … but hmm … I am going to give vegetarianism a whirl! Sure … it will save the planet, but more selfishly — IT WILL SAVE ME. Do the research; vegetarians live longer, weigh less, feel better, and have fewer illnesses (including cancer!).

And … get this … the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends a veggie diet for long-term health:

“It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life-cycle including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood and adolescence and for athletes.”

And … here’s a cool blog.

And!!! We went to the beach today … a great day (I looked awesome with my 1/2 gallon jug of juice in tow).
