"Going Nuts"


Hi to all my Raw friends,
I have to confess. I have been heavy on the nuts an seeds lately. I don't know what's happening. I know this is a stressful time of year for us all, however, I get started on those nuts and seeds and then I can't stop. When I first became raw, two years ago. I ate nuts and seeds very sparingly. Now I find myself binging on them all the time. I have gained back 15 pounds since my Juice feast. The good thing is, I have been 100% raw vegan and haven't swayed. The bad thing is, I have been an emotional eater my entire life. This is not he way to go for me. I prayed often that the nut and seed binges are not a major set back for me. I wondered if maybe my body is trying to tell me that I have a deficiency. I researched the vitamin and mineral content of nuts and seeds and this is what I came up with. I have a vitamin B deficiency. It really helped me to check in with myself.

138 days post juice feast

Wow! I haven't been here in a while. It's been 138 days since I completed the juice feast. Life has been good post JF and I've been enjoying my 100% raw vegan lifestyle. I must admit, I miss the way I felt on the juice feast. The euphoria and weightlessness made me feel magical. To be able to transform myself was an awesome experience. In August I made yet another major decision. I cut off all my dreadlocks. It was difficult letting them go, however, it was another step towards transformation and renewal. Cutting my hair meant letting go of the past and making room for the new.




I have to tell you that it wasn't easy when I first began this raw journey. I had many hurdles to jump. I was very ill, had difficulty walking and was overweight before going raw and then juicing. I needed to take better charge of my health so I went raw overnight and I never gave up. It was too important to me to turn back to the SAD(Standard American Diet). I don't suggest that everyone go 100% raw and I don't suggest doing it overnight. Go at your own pace. Do what's best for you. I still need to check in with myself from time to time. We all have our challenges. I find that I need to pace myself when feeling stressed or confronted with unplanned circumstances. Planning my meals is the key to my success. I find that if I do not plan, I have tendency to overeat nuts and seeds. For me, the most challenging of all, is my family and friends. I am the only one in my family who eats raw, therefore I am surrounded by cooked food daily. I still cook for my husband even though I do not eat the food I prepare for him. I feel empowered that I am able to maintain my diet with such challenges. When I go to out to eat I always have a cool bag with raw goodies and my own homemade dressing. I can create a wonderful vegan salad with my goodies to a basic dinner salad or a plate of raw veggies. I never feel left out at social gatherings. I just become more creative.



Today I have decided to go on a water fast because nine days from now, I will be celebrating my 50th birthday. I would like to begin this new phase of my life with complete purity. For the first time in my life, I can say that I have literally been reborn. Because of my raw and vegan lifestyle,at age 50, I am not on any medication and my health has improved by leaps and bounds.

Until next time,
Blessings to all

Life After Juice Feasting

Life After Juice feasting (Day 28)

It's been 28 days since I broke my juice feast. Settling back into eating has its challenges. Everything tastes so good. I have to watch myself carefully, as to not awaken old overeating habits. Being 100% raw vegan is a permanent lifestyle for me. I am setting new goals for myself as far as physical exercise. I was not very good about keeping up a routine in the past and my muscle tone reveals my neglect. I am continuing to feel fantastic. If It were possible, I would juice feast

are under the care of a professional.

Day 1 post Juice feast

I awakened this morning in anticipation of creating my sacred space. I had soaked my prunes over night and was now ready to consume the soak water. Before I started, I had to verbally express my whole experience with juice feasting spiritually with my SO (significant other). It added power to my sacred ritual. He has been patient and understanding every step of the way, even though he was not a part of the juice feast. I love him so much for supporting me. There have been some concerns about how thin I am and I want everyone to know that I am ok. Eating will put some weight back on. I had been blogging here as well as on Globaljuicefeast.com and everyone has been a major support in my accomplishment. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You all have been wonderful. I want to also thank David and Katrina for an outstanding job creating the global juice feast and an awesome community...happy tears and a BIG HUG!!!

Day 90





All I can say is wow! it is day 90. The past few days have been very emotional. I haven't been able to blog because my attention has been focused inward. I haven't had much to say. For some reason I have been craving silence and solitude. Now that the juice feast is coming to a close, I prepare myself for the reintroduction of solids. I bought my prunes and I have a sacred ritual planned. I don't have a video cam so I won't be able to share my experience visually. I will write in detail the event every step of the way. I send out warm and loving thoughts to all who have been on this juice feasting journey with me.

Day 86

10 Days to go and prunes are beginning to look really good to me. I 'm starting to get hungry, however, I don't want the feast to end. I have enjoyed the freedom of not eating and restful benefits it has has on my body. This my seem bizarre, however, I've been thinking about it a lot. I am concerned about eating again, due to my past eating disorder, I'm afraid of doing something crazy like bingeing on prunes. I know this is extreme thinking, but I know myself so I am planning ahead
for the end of my juice feast. I love how my body looks now. I feel young again. I am just a little underweight right now, however, I noticed when reading post juice feasting blogs that you will gain some back. Being under weight is a good thing for me. I didn't drink any green juice today. Watermelon has been my juice of choice for the entire day.

Day 64, 65 and 66

Day 64, 65 and 66

I had a major emotional upset this weekend and it was a real challenge for me. In the past I would have handled an emotional upset with bingeing on food(even raw food). I was quite proud of myself for not throwing in the towel and undoing all my cleansing. I handled the pain without the comfort of food. For the first time in my life, I allowed myself to really feel hurt and anger. I cried today, like I had never cried before. I let myself feel anger and not tuck it away and let it eventually turn into disease or physical pain. What a new experience for me. Juice feasting isn't just healing me physically, it is expanding me spiritually. I could not have been able to make it to Day 66 if I hadn't added the support of my spirituality.

Day 55

Day 55

I had a slight headache today. I think it was because I had been in the sun too long today. It gets hot and dry here in Phoenix and you can dehydrate very easily. I noticed that I wasn't urinating as frequently as I had been. Yesterday I was a little off my juice schedule. I only managed to get in 2 quarts of juice. I felt fine, not deprived at all. Today I'm back to normal.

Day 44

I'm getting quite skinny. I don't mind it too much, however I still have a month in a half to go. I wonder what I will be then? I added some coconut oil as a supplement today. I actually took it a step further, Spirulina Bars

I measured :
1/2 cup of organic, unrefined coconut oil
1/3 cup of organic raw honey
1/4 cup of spirulina
1/4 teaspoon of Celtic sea salt

Blended it together and poured it on a plate and placed it in the fridge. When it hardened(approx. 10-20 min.), I cut it into tablespoon size pieces. Yummy!

My juice has been all about the greens now. I haven't wanted fruit. It just hasn't appealed to my lately.
