JUICE FEAST Days 29 & 30!

Saturday, January 26, 2008 - Day 30!



The universe operates through dynamic exchange...giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives. Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success


This photo is from our fall harvest...summer squash from the greenhouse, apples from the tree and mint from the garden drying in the back ground. Abundance, just like the Juice Feast!
Today was a very exciting day, as I was looking forward to a delicious green smoothie and I was not disappointed! I made a little video clip to talk about my Day 30 and even give you a peek outside our snowy window, but alas, it seems to be stuck in a never-never land of uploading-I'll see what I can figure out in the future. :) Somewhere around noon (after my morning lemon water and green juice, I filled up my Blentec with frozen strawberries from our garden, wild huckleberries, frozen pears from my friend's tree, a small banana, flax oil, Vitamineral Greens, spirulina, chlorella, kelp, dulse, bee pollen, fresh spinach, Ningxia wolfberries and water. Voila! Holy nutrient-dense deliciousness! This is really a tasty way to get all those greens and superfoods in. So far in the Juice Feast, I have been stirring up the green superfoods (Vitamineral Greens, spirulina, chlorella and kelp) into a paste, then adding some fresh juice and water to drink it in a 6 oz shot. I didn't enjoy the taste and didn't want to contaminate a whole yummy juice by blending them in, so I chugged them! Recently, I have started to crave more of these goodies and put heaping spoonfuls in my smoothie. Their nutrition and protein really sustain my energy and satisfy my appetite. I am beginning to see why Courtney Pool has been on a spirulina craze!


Later in the day, I made a green soup in the blender with 1/2 carrot, 2 stalks celery, 1/2 cucumber, chard, garlic, ginger and dulse. Yuck! It tasted horrible to me! I sat down and really tried to drink it, but I just couldn't do it, which seemed strange because I have been drinking all of these foods in the juice form for the past 29 days! I reblended a small amount with 1/2 apple which helped, but I still wasn't able to drink much. The dogs weren't down either, so it got composted :( I'll keep trying to find a palatable green soup for me!


Just a note on the flax oil...I got this because the health food store has been out of hemp oil. Flax oil is a great source of omega fatty acids like hemp oil, but for the long term, if you focus on flax for this intake, there will be an imbalance with too much of the omega 3 fatty acids compared to the omega 6. So, this is a temporary substitution.

I am enthralled by your greenhouse. And your squashes look so beautiful!

Congratulations as well on 30 days of feasting and transitioning to the modified feast. I have also struggled with green soups. I'm not sure if this is protocol, but sometimes I warm them a bit -- to 100 degrees or so, which I find augments the flavors without destroying the enzymes. Also, try taking a nod from Poppy and make a smooth gazpacho. You can green it up as you get into it.

Thanks for your encouragement all! and also, thanks for the tips..a tomato-based green soup sounds a bit more palatable. I am waiting until I can get my hands on a decent avocado before I try my next green soup creation. I am proud of you Neeta!! xo, Kelly
