Happy Sunday wishes to everyone! Today it has clouded over a bit...but this did not interfere with my lazy morning!
First...I'll talk about the Victoria JuiceLuck which happened last night! It was fabulous, funny, and filled-with-fruit-and veggies! There were about 15 of us there...some what we called "juice groupies", not on the full-on feast. We amassed our our juices, with my favourite being a creation by Robyn: orange, apple, and chai spices. It tasted like apple cider!
We joked around -- talked of enemas, amounts of juice we're consuming, our respective weight losses (mine seems to be about 1 pound a day!), new juice tidbits discovered, and the always constant juice recipes! Everyone was just glowing -- radiant! People were over the cleansing reaction hump for the most part, too!
The highlight of the night for me was when Ayrie hooked us up with a video-conference with David and Katrina Rainoshek down in Patagonia, Arizona -- juice-feasting central! We were able to to do a Q & A session with them, with some interesting questions being asked and answered. I discovered that cilantro is great for aiding with the extraction of heavy metals, which will be beneficial to me. Hezzie also raised a question about how to maintain weight, since she had no weight to loose to begin with, and has lost upwards to 10 pounds already. It has been totally invaluable having them as resources!
Of course, amongst ourselves, the staggering cost of this feast came up! It more than puts a dent in the ol' pocket book...it rips it apart! I easily drop $100 each trip to the store -- and this isn't one trip per week...no, no...far more! Yowzers!
i jokingly mentioned to David and Katrina that I'm experiencing juicing nightmares -- relaying my recurring cracker dream. Katrina explained that it too, is a form of detoxing: our cells carry memories, and their process of detoxing can lead to mental images/thoughts resurfacing.
I've discovered that there are two things I don't like juicing with: grapefruit (though like eating them), and kale (though it's one of my very favourite foods for salads, stir-frys, etc. -- juiced it is so potent, almost black in colour) --
I've got some photos to share from last night's festivities!
