OK - so what did I decide?
That life is just too tumultuous right now to commit to juice feasting 100%. But..
I woke up yesterday and really felt like just drinking lemon juice with cayenne and agave/maple syrup.. Although I started the day with phytoplankton and water.
I thought of juicefeasting.. but although I had read extensively on the website - most of the info on the 92 days- which is fascinating - I somehow skipped the important- How to get started information. How exactly to go about this.. Now I have the basics down:
1- Start 1st thing in the AM with 1 quart of water with 1/2 lemon squeezed and 1-3 T's of MSM.
2 - Shower or wake up and then make juice for the rest of the day - about 4 quarts of juice: a green vegetable juice and a citrus/fruit juice.
3 - Make sure you drink juice every 2-3 hours.
4 - The order you drink is important - Start with a green juice to alkalinize the system then late morning -afternoon drinks can be fruit (or green-vegetable juice) and the later evening juices should be green veggie ones.
So I woke up yesterday with a neighbour-friend calling early to go out shopping and needing something quick to consume. The Master cleanse protocol was easy for me cause I have done it a few times before (& really like it) so I ended up doing that all day. My only exception was last night - when I was co-erced by another friend to drink hot chocolate (raw, Chocosol decadence) - Thats was a tough one & I ended up giving in to a small cup.
But good news is that I went out & bought lots of produce yesterday.
So, I can't guarantee that I can stay 100% but I am going to juice whenever possible. I am still working on the Rawlicious menu & when I am testing recipes I am going to have to taste them.
& there are other considerations - emotional grounding may be necessary periodically.
So far today I have had E3Live & water, a lemon drink & now I am off to juice a big batch of vegetable juice to join all of you Juice Feasters! *Wish me luck- I'll be typing out recipes all afternoon! Big Hugs & Love!!! xo
