For those of you who are rebooting your system with a juice fast. Visit www.fatsickandnearlydead.com site for explicit instructions. The 15 day fast is doable with a normal schedule, just remember that the first 2 days are uncomfortable. If you feel really hungry and tired, eat raw or steamed vegetables. Bake a potato, steam some kale, raw carrots, a fresh tomato, etc. It helps if you can get your vegetables and fruit in season close to where they are grown. A Farmer’s Market and local orchards are great sources. Everything will taste better. Also, if you want more juice recipes, just write a comment. Send me a line, I’m listening.
Ingredients: 1 pear, 1 orange, 1 lemon, 1 organic carrot, 1 banana, 1 scoop Nutrilite Protein Powder
Juice all of the above except for the banana and the protein powder.
Pour juice into blender, add banana and protein powder and blend until smooth.
Just posting a new juicing recipe. Combine an apple, celery and cucumber in your juicer. With apples coming into season, incorporate them into juices, meals and snacks. The orchards nearby have an amazing variety of apples that ripen in turn all the way to Thanksgiving. Develop your own new recipes and send them to me.
A birthday celebration has to have cake and ice cream, right? Wrong, we celebrated my husbands birthday with a main pasta dish with pesto, plates of steamed and raw veggies as sides and a low-fat shortbread with fresh peaches. I enjoyed the veggies and made some fresh peach juice for dessert. It was a day of temptations but as long as I didn’t let myself get hungry, I survived. The focus of the day was on the celebration and family time, not on the food. Won the weekly scrabble game which also made it a great day!
I just made the best fresh tomato gazpacho I’ve ever tasted. This is definitely a keeper.
