I have been making an effort to juice more regularly again.  The problem I ran in to was making my juices way to complicated.  I thought I need to have a specific recipe and lots of greens and herbs in order for it to be a “good” juice.  I was watching a video of my favorite raw food youtuber and Dan the Lifer regenerator was like, keep it simple and juice apples, cucumbers, and carrots.  It hit me that I often have a couple of things in my refrigerator.  So the other day I had a great juice of cucumber, carrot, ginger, and apples.  Another juice I made was apples, oranges, ginger, and carrots. 

Keep it simple and get your juice on!

Many, many moons ago I made a post about Aldi‘s grocery store (see here http://wp.me/p91IK-1z)

Well, just recently an Aldi’s grocery store has moved into my neighborhood and my husband and I ventured in to have a look around.  It was basic to say the least.  I had my quarter ready for the shopping cart and my large canvass bag for my groceries.  I am happy I did not drive out of town to shop at Aldi because of the small selection of groceries.  There is no way I could only shop at Aldi and get everything that I need.  What I am happy to say is that they have very cheap produce.

OBSERVATIONS

1.  I’m feeling mentally lethargic.

2.  Husband has informed me he does not intend to eat meat other than seafood after our 21-day cleanse is up.

3.  I’m mentally starting to feel a little strain.

4.  I’m happy to report no coffee cravings.

5.  I’m happy to report no junk food cravings.

So, these last 2 days I really have been feeling mentally sluggish, though not put off the change of eating habits.  I’m going to investigate what I need to do in order to reverse that.  I’m thinking I can eat more fruit to get more carbohydrates.  I was trying to watch my fruit intake in order to not over do the sugar.  I had heard that there would possibly be this sort of up and down emotional rollercoaster from making this change in my diet and I guess I’m just experiencing it.  Hopefully it will not last long and I can find ways to counteract it.  I don’t think it helps that the weather has been cold and rainy for days either.

OBSERVATIONS

1.  My husband is using terminology like “dead carcass” when referring to meat. 

2.  I’ve been holding off on this observation because it is a little personal, but I’ve got to say that since changing my diet my bowel movements have no foul odor and neither does my husbands.  Also, deodorant is a nonissue. 

3.  Still not craving meat, or chocolate, or bread. 

4.  I’ve been thinking about Brussel sprouts for 2 days and I’m determined to have steamed Brussel sprouts for dinner this week.

5.  Nuts have become my go to snack.

I may be witnessing my husband’s complete transformation to vegetarian.  I don’t know if he is going to go back to eating meat after these 21 days.  Kris Carr said that body odor was going to go away and she was right.  I did not think about it until today, but after my 5K walk I had almost no body odor and I did break a sweat.  I’m going to pay attention to this and see if after a good sweat I’m not reeking for miles.

Today was the first day of my and my husband’s 21-day cleanse. We are abstaining from meat, dairy, most carbs like breads, and refined sugars. I’ve also given up coffee for the next 21 days. We are loosely following a raw food type lifestyle as a way to jump start our good health. We bought a great juicer, the Breville Elite 800JEXL, and we make green juice every morning. For lunch we are doing salads and for dinner I’m planning on hot vegetarian meals.

Yunus 10:18

And they worship besides Allâh things that hurt them not, nor profit them, and they say: "These are our intercessors with Allâh." Say: "Do you inform Allâh of that which He knows not in the heavens and on the earth?" Glorified and Exalted be He above all that which they associate as partners with Him!
