I have been a bit irregular with my blog posts this week but I am planing to be a really good blogger from here on out. I mean, surely I can get this together since I only have 3 MORE DAYS TO GO! I'm feeling a mixture of emotion at this point on my journey. One the one hand, I'm delighted and excited that solid food will be part of my future once again, but on the other, I'm a little blue when I think of closing this wonderful, juicy chapter of my life. What keeps me from becoming too sad is that juicing isn't going anywhere and it's a practice with which I've become very intimately acquainted during the past 3 months. I have learned more than I thought possible about the fine art of juicing and how to make things taste appealing. Having this sabbatical away from dining has taught me that I used to eat in the past for many other reasons other than true hunger. I've now developed a life skill and practice that I can use at anytime to easily bring my body into balance and restore the intestinal harmony within.
My experience with juice feasting has been incredible on every level. The discipline that I've gained and the newness of understanding regarding my own personal relationship with food has been life changing. I'll most likely share more about this on my final day. One of the things that I am most excited about is that I am currently working on an ebook which will be filled with LOTS of great recipes, and hopefully, it will contain the personal stories of some of my other juice feasting companions that I have come to know over the past months. This project has been on my heart to do for some time now, so be sure to look for my debut book in the near future!
I am also working on my plan of how I can bring those who are interested in raw foods together within Tulsa and the surrounding areas. During this juice feast, I have received so many letters with requests for ideas, recipes, help, information, counsel, and support. It seems that everyone feels the same way....as though they are lone rangers out there white knuckling or hanging onto raw food by a string. I believe the missing element is a community of like minded people who can come together in an educational and entertaining atmosphere and gain support and ideas. If you are in my area and this is something that interests you, won't you please take a moment to comment me or shoot an email my direction to firstname.lastname@example.org I'd genuinely love to hear your thoughts and any of your ideas, wants, needs, etc.
The Daily Juice:
I have been drinking a lot of citrus, watermelon and simple green mixtures like celery/apple/ spinach. There have been lots of stresses that are non-juice feasting related within my family, so my creative energies have simply been elsewhere lately. Hopefully I'll get a final wave of creative gusto within the next three days. If you would, say a little prayer for my daughter and my dad, please.
