No, but seriously, I love kiwis! More vitamin C than an orange and almost as much potassium as a banana! When I traveled to New Zealand a few years ago, I fell in love with these little guys! I like to scoop out the middle with a spoon or slice ‘em up in chunks with some lemon juice & mint like a salad! Yum!!

Good Morning!! Spending my free morning soaking up some vitamin D &amp; drinking oranges &amp; kiwis! I’m feeling so good on this juice feast that I think I’m going to extend it a few days. I just keep feeling more alive &amp; clean! It’s hard to describe, but I can feel the changes happening in my body; my skin, hair, nails, energy, happiness, alertness… It’s like I’m upgrading my body!! LMAO! ;)

Juice Feasting - Day One!

Today marks the first day of my juice feast! My boyfriend has been struggling a little with his health & fitness goals recently, so he decided to join me as well - which made my heart jump for joy when he told me! :p He went out last night to the wholesaler and brought back this gorgeous bounty of fresh fruits & veggies:

I spent about 2 hours in the kitchen last night with my juicer and made about 5.5 L of various juices: some orange/strawberry/lemon for breakfast, tomato/carrot/cucumber for him for lunch & green juice with pineapple/kiwi/lemon/apple/spinach/ginger for me. Simply delicious!

Dinner we shared approx 4L of oranges, carrots and apples together! So smooth and refreshing!!

As most of you know if you read my blog, I usually have a juice of some sort just about every day. I’m a self-confessed juice-a-holic. But right now I just finished my green juice from lunch and I am buzzing from all those vitamins and minerals! ;) My boyfriend has informed me that he’s already had to take a few emergency trips to the bathroom - but I take that as a good sign. The more that comes out, the more toxicity you’re getting rid of! 

I’m not doing this for weight loss. I’m using it as a cleansing period, a chance to really let my body relax and focus on healing for a short while. Yoga, reading, inward reflection, affirmations & meditation are all part-and-parcel of my detox. :)

I’ll be posting more pics of the juices I make over the next few days too. As well as any more info on detox symptoms or cravings we might experience. My main informational post will be at the end of the week to summarize & give more background knowledge about fasting & feasting with juices. 

Peace & Love to you all! <3

"Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate." This has been, and still is, a tough lesson for me&#8230;
I love life. And healthy people. And happy animals. I love THE TRUTH &amp; I think it should be available to everyone. I love my body. And my planet. I love them both enough to learn what hurts it, what&#8217;s good for it &amp; what can make it better. I promote the diet &amp; lifestyle that coincides with what I love &amp; the change I want to see in the world around me. 
So&#8230; Here&#8217;s some fruit! Because the more we eat green &amp; clean, the more we get others interested &amp; the closer we get to a better world. &lt;3

Hey Guys, Gals &amp; Fruity-Folk! 
I&#8217;m just about to sit down to dinner &amp; finally RELAX! this weekend was kinda crazy with a house-warming party at my place on Friday (up until 4? what was I thinking??), then the 3 hour drive to see family on Saturday &amp; I just got back tonight&#8230; busy, busy, busy. Luckily, my family&#8217;s Easter gathering was simple enough that I got away with making a banana/blueberry smoothie &amp; munching on some raw veggies &amp; an apple or two. Also my sister made a vegan quinoa dish that I just had to try! It was delish! Cranberries &amp; walnuts all up in there; yep - it was quite tasty! I love that she&#8217;s getting into vegan &amp; vegetarian cooking! Really warms my heart in that fuzzy-family way, you know? :p 
I have a lot to catch up on over the next few days with studying &amp; replying to emails &amp; such. Also, over the next two weeks, I&#8217;ll be making some changes to the site. Not going to specify exactly what just yet, but I&#8217;ll letcha know when it&#8217;s all up &amp; running! 
Speaking of running, the warm weather has got me thinking about racing again. My dad &amp; I talked about running the Waterloo Classic again this year for Father&#8217;s Day &amp; my sister is going to even join in with us! I&#8217;m super-stoked! 
Hope you guys had a great weekend too! Enjoy the family time &amp; keep spreading the raw love!
