OMG, YOUR STARVING YOURSELF. I say, I did Awsome !!! Day 1

Thursday, December 12, 2013

WoW !!! emoticon Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to get started. emoticon
Yesterday I got up and decided to Juice Fast. emoticon
I did AWESOME YESTERDAY. emoticon
The Scale MOVED. It said I did well, down 3 pounds. emoticon
emoticon I am so EXCITED !!!
Day 1 is done and I have many more to go.








emoticon The juice fast I am doing is what worked before. I drink as much fresh, mostly vegetable juice emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon and a little bit of fruit juice mixed in. Home-Made Vegetable broth or soup. I blended all the vegetables in the Vita yesterday until smooth and creamy. YUM. Chocolate Vegan, Protein, Chia Seed pudding Oh, so yummy. emoticon Oh, some Hot tea to chase the Chill away.

Press Control Button and the + button at the same time to enlarge the informative photos.





I was HUNGRY. But it wasn't real hunger. It was FALSE HUNGER. emoticon My stomach felt stuffed, but the hunger really was a CRAVING disguised as Hunger. It kept trying to TRICK ME. emoticon One of the reasons for juice fasting, REBOOTING, JUICE Feasting is the Mindfulness or Awareness it brings. It helps to BREAK false illusions of hunger while feeding your body nutrition more powerful than a vitamin pill.






But your NOT GETTING ENOUGH NUTRITION, I hear too often. What??? emoticon How can it be lacking in nutriton, when I consume more fruits and vegetables than most people do in a day? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Really. My diet is LOADED WITH NUTRITION. Or I will hear YOUR STARVING YOURSELF? How can it be I wonder when I consume so many fruits and vegetables and they contain everything my body needs. They have protein, amino acids, phytonutrients, antioxidants, high ORAC levels. emoticon








Breakfast was a DELIGHTFUL blend of juices. emoticon Today's juice has Clover sprouts, Mung Bean sprouts, apples, fresh rosemary, fresh sage, lemon grass, fresh spearmint, fresh turmeric root, fresh oregano, fresh garlic, ginger, grapes, zucchini, cranberries, lemons, bell pepper, spinach, kale, and more. It's all about flooding the body with the maximum amount of nutrition. Most people don't get that much NUTRIION in a meal. My body was FLOODED with phytochemicals. I also drank a coconut, 1 real whole coconut. emoticon YUM.







Where is the PROTEIN??? Well it's in all the stuff I consume. emoticon emoticon No, not from meat. It comes from vegetables. emoticon emoticon Green vegetables are filled with it. Mung beans sprouts are 25% protein. Lately I am adding in sprouts into my juicing. Sprouts are packed with 10-30% more nutrition and up to 30% protein that is easily absorbed. They are loaded with phytochemicals that fight disease.









What about FIBER, if your juicing where is the fiber? Well I add in a mix of Wild Greens which is full of fiber. The Creamed vegetable soup is full of fiber and so is the Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding.








Why JUICE when you can blend? emoticon Juicing allows your body to be flooded with the nutrients within 20 minutes. Fiber would slow that time down and absorption levels. Yes, blending is a great method when your healthy. Each has their benefits. It boils down as to personal choice, do what is right for you. emoticon







For the latest information on foods that kill cancer read here. emoticon https://www.facebook.com/TheEd

When you juice you consume more food than you would normally eat. Juice fasting really is Feasting. One day I drank 5 pounds of carrots. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon That was only one quart of juice. That was powerful stuff and tasty. I can't eat 5 pounds of carrots cooked or raw or even blended, but I can drink a quart of juice.





I have read of a person who drank a 5 pounds of carrot juice a day to cure his cancer. His tumor said bye, bye. http://www.chrisbeatcancer.com
/
Over at Hacres.com the pastor healed himself of cancer with carrot juice and his wife was healed of debilitating arthritis. She could barely do much due to pain.






Juicing Vs. Blending. I like juice as I want more nutrition for my body. I can drink more vegetables and fruit if I juice. If I blend I fill up with fiber faster, so I can't get as much nutrition in a day. Dr. Mercola favors Juicing along with Dr. Clement.





Finally this video will explain the differences in juicing and blending. According to Dr. Clement, juicing is more powerful and healing for people with chronic health issues. He discusses that blending can damage nutritional values of the produce. I have also seen another blog which said the differences is not very much. ??? emoticon

    I LOVE how you explained juicing! I'm a "blender" myself, but that makes total sense to do juicing if ill or just prefer (to each their own and good job!!) A long time ago (20 years maybe?) I went to Ca. for two weeks to a raw food retreat (I have called it Camp Vegetable for so long that I actually don't remember the name of the place) I was there for a re-boot and cleanse but there were people there with illnesses. The whole raw food thing is pretty interesting, I know that's different from juicing, but this made me think of that because all of the ingredients are raw for juicing of course. We had watermelon for breakfast, a shot of wheat grass later, raw veggies for lunch, and seed patties of some kind for dinner. We did exercise every day and I never felt better!! Great job on taking care of YOU and best to you~ Sandi emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hi! yesterday I tried to make two different kale chips, neither one was as good as the ones you buy. Such a waste of time cause of the recipes.
When I had chia, I attribute them as being the things or than the probiotics that kept my cat from throwing up, he had renal failure. there is no cure. I gave him my best knowledge, like Dr Frankenstein I treated him as if he was myself fighting cancer. The vet's say there isn't nay cure. But I would like to say that he no longer has allergies thinning out his fur. or possibly secures, or renal failure. I don't do juicing as much AS I LIKE, BUT I DEFINATELY USE MY KNOWLEGE of food as medicine to pull me out of illnesses, and to incorporate into my life. I am learning more AND MORE ABOUT HORMONES AFFECTED by spices, detoxes that are spices, and anti-oxidants. I think when you health is involved, you have to make a decision. Do you do nothing and get worse, or do you take the responsibility to try and find something that will help you.Do you ever put your recipes into a cook book on this site, so that I might reference it too for your delicious recipes? lol eva

    I've also read somewhere (I think Dr. Mercola) that blending veggies actually destroys a lot of nutrients whereas juicing them does not. If I come across that again, I'll send it to you.

I love flooding my body with fresh veggie juice phytonutrients. You do a great job of describing the benefits.
