MIA


Hi My friends,
I have been MIA for some time, I miss sharing with all of you. I have had some challenges with my health that has caused me to go from 100% raw to 95%raw. I hope that I have calculated that correctly. 2009 has been rough for me. I had a Valley Fever relapse and found that I suffer from Adrenal Disorder. I was in the hospital where no one understood my diet. I was put on tons of medication, of which I am no longer taking. Thank Goddess that I've been eating raw for the last three years and I am an herbalist. Life could have been a whole lot worse for me. For two moths, I added smoked salmon(Lox) to my diet because I lost my hair and my fingernails have become very soft and began to split, I have had to increase some protein in my diet that required a little more than the dark leafy greens that I have been eating. Now I am back to 100% raw and I feel fantastic. I eat lots of sea veggies that contain iodine which is beneficial to those who suffer from adrenal disorder. It's so good to be back. I believe in the raw food lifestyle. I feel it has saved my life.

It is so good to be raw!

JF 2009 Day Update


Hi Everyone,
Sorry I missed a couple of days of posting. I'm feeling much better today. The weather warmed up a little, so it's helping me cope with the chills I've been having. I must confess, I was cooking the other day, because my family is not raw, and without any thought I tasted the food I was cooking. It wasn't until after the fact that I realized what I had done. I actually ate a small amount of cooked food. I had been preparing a new recipe and had no idea how it was going to turn out. My first instinct is to taste test before I serve a meal. I've been raw for a little over two years now and this was the first time I did that.
I've decided that I am not going to make an issue out of it, so I am going to laugh it off and continue juicing as usual.

7:30 am I had 1 quart of water with lemon juice and MSM.

emotional over-eating by garfield avatar Pictures, Images and Photos

Hi Everyone,
Life is still stressful right now. I found myself craving solid food today, yet I maintained my determination to juice feast. Spiritually, Juice feasting provides me with a sense of peace and tranquility. I feel that eating now will cause me more stress.

Saturday Day 8
I didn't consume much juice today. I'm still dealing with a family crisis and it has thrown my schedule off a bit. I was still able to make a gallon of juice, however, I was only able to drink 2 quarts of my green juice and a cup of tea.

Today (Sunday) Day 9
I don't normally make a habit of drinking my juices that are older than 12 hours, but things have not been normal for me for the past few days. Today I am drank the green juice I made yesterday and a quart of master cleanse. I chose to have the master cleanse as my fruit juice. It was quick and easy for me, since my time schedule has been so unstable. Tomorrow I will be taking my sick car in to get repaired and hopefully, soon, my life can get back in balance.

Produce! Pictures, Images and Photos

Hi Everyone,
It's Day 5 and I had to go shopping today. My refrigerator only holds three days worth of produce. The market, where I purchase all my vegetables and fruit has a good selection of organics. I'm not always able to find everything organic, so from time to time I must select something conventional. I'm feeling pretty good today, not that I was feeling bad. I just feel a since of clarity. My skin even feels different. Before the juice feast, I had noticed a little puffiness in my face. All of that is gone now.

JF 2009, Day 4

Dreaming of a clean house Pictures, Images and Photos


Hi Everyone,
It's Day 4 and I was having some wild dreams last night. Stuff that I had tucked away and refused to deal with in life is surfacing in my dreams. I awakened this morning with a feeling of shame and embarrassment from what was happening in my dream. The message to me means I must deal with my stuff, no matter how uncomfortable I feel about it. My eating is so tied into my emotions, even on raw food I have to stay focused. I also have some challenges that can be quite overwhelming yet never cause me to stray from juice feasting and my raw food lifestyle. My husband is not vegetarian or vegan and he is not about to go raw. I cook for him everyday, even while juice feasting. Today I found myself experiencing some intense cravings, however, they do pass. The benefits of JF is too important to me to throw in the towel. I feel really good.

JF 2009, Day 2

Hi Everyone,
It's Day 2 and I've gotten through the first 24hrs. My right eye was a little red this morning when I woke up. It's been an off and on problem that I hope to remedy on the JF along with healing from a chronic illness and toning my muscles. I have created a sacred space for myself for spiritual purification and meditation. It is spirit that motivates my Juice Feasting. I labeled my mason jars with mantras so that my juice is empowered with positive vibration. I wonder, is it appropriate to use flower essences?

Current Weight: 135lbs (I lost 2lbs)
Goal weight: 125lbs

I slept in this morning again, however I got started a little earlier.

I Am Juice Feasting Again! (Day 1)




Hi to all my friends,
Today is January 3rd and I am juice feasting again. It is Day 1 and I will be sharing my experiences with you once again After the thirty days, I will return to my 100% raw vegan lifestyle, only this time I will post what I'm eating day be day. So far I have been very good with maintaining a 100% raw vegan lifestyle, however, I have not been maintaining balance. I had gotten into the bad habit, again, of mindless overeating when stressed My GOAL is to overcome the compulsion to overeat when I am stressed. I've gained a few pounds back since I reached my goal weight while on the 2008 Global Juice Feast. My mistake was eating lots of nuts with reckless abandonment. I knew what I was doing was going to catch up with me eventually. Somehow, I think I might have been testing myself to see how far I could go. Well, I found out. Even on raw food you must eat in moderation. Small amounts of raw food is the best way to go because live food is highly nutritious. Juice Feasting again will get me back on track.

My Stats

Current Weight: 137lbs
Goal weight: 125lbs

I slept in this morning, so I got a late start preparing my juice.

9:00 am I had 1 quart of water with lemon juice and MSM.

9:30 am
I had an enema followed by skin brushing and a hot bath. ( I was too cold to do contrast showers).

10:30 am
I prepared my juice. It takes about an hour or so from start to clean up.

Tomorrow I will be back to my regular schedule.

11:15 am I had 1 quart Green Juice made with:
Celery, organic fuji apples, cucumber, organic spinach, romaine lettuce, mixed baby greens, and lemon.

2:30 pm I had 1 quart of Fruit Juice made with:
Pomegranate and fuji apples. (Way too much apple juice for me! I need to modify this one).

6:30 pm I had 1 quart Green juice made with:
Celery, organic fuji apples, cucumber, organic spinach, romaine lettuce, mixed
baby greens, and lemon.

9:30 pm I had 1 quart Green Juice made with:
Celery, organic fuji apples, cucumber, organic spinach, romaine lettuce, mixed baby greens and lemon.

Cleansing Reactions

1. Urinated a lot today.
2. Had chills all day so I needed a cup of warm lemon water with ginger and raw honey.
3. My tummy is making sounds like a washing machine...lol...believe me, it's a good thing.

Exercise

I didn't do any today. I decided to take it slow. I will be on point tomorrow.




Blessings,
Tuliza
