to be healthier....and it sort of stinks!
OK, so another post about juicing......since I got like ONE comment on the last one...and that was a sympathy comment from Gretchen, I think.
For the last week and a half probably we've been juicing LOTS of vegetables and fruits. I like the fruit ones, not the veggie ones so much. I've been using sweet potatoes, carrots, celery, kale, beets, cucumbers,red lettuce, yams, tomatoes,broccoli, and asparagus ALL MIXED TOGETHER for the veggie ones.
I've been drinking about 12 oz / 3 times a day. (on a good day)
For the fruit ones, it's easier....oranges, apples, bananas, grapefruit, coconut and pineapple. With a dash of cinnamon. Those are pretty good :)
But, I still don't feel better....and I'm getting REAL sick of the veggie ones....today I only had one 12 oz cup. Then felt sick after downing it.
I think I'm burning out. And Shane just ordered a new/better juicer :) He's really excited about it and loves eating healthy and getting Rich and I to do so also.
You should look up the Gerson Therapy....it's a guy who created this diet of mostly veggie juice...like 13 times a day to actually cure diseases! Really. I saw the documentary....it can actually cure cancers. Plus MANY other benefits. This guy was 117 years old when he died!!
So, I'm going to try and stick with it.
But I really miss cinnamon rolls. (Christine Reed...your post today didn't help!)
Plus, I have a terrible cold....after drinking a whole garden for almost 2 weeks!
Rich thinks I have a ways to go on my 'detoxification' period....since I tend to like sweets more than the average person! ha. :) Maybe he's right.
So that's what's been going on around here....it's Minnesota...it's winter...it's BORING. So, we have to find ways to entertain ourselves ;)
By the way, if I only get like one sympathy comment again on this, I'm never going to mention juicing again!
I'm just trying to help you people stay HEALTHY!
