Eye update!

So it turns out that I didn't have iritis, I had a corneal ulcer! It's been cleared up in two days by antibiotic eye drops! Thank goodness! Off the Lasqueti again...

One week now off the feast!

So, it's feeling good eating again!

I had my first smoothie last Tuesday evening, and continued to only have smoothies until Friday evening. I was very aware that since I hadn't been drinking that much juice, I did not want to shock my system too badly!

So, Friday morning the three of us headed up to Lasqueti Island, along with Constanze. I packed three smoothies on ice with me...figuring they were not likely to separate as quickly as juice. I was right! I also want to make my first bite of salad (I skipped the introduction of fruits aspect of feast breaking, I was craving greens!), to be from a fresh-picked Lasqueti Island garden. Oh! my did those greens ever hit the spot!! I had a small bowl of salad, dressed with olive oil and apple cider vinegar, and fell in love. I just wanted to keep on eating and eating! I restrained myself though!

The next morning, I had one of those devine Frog Hollow organic apricots -- and I was off! I'm loving salads! Yesterday, I did make a morning juice, and today a smoothie -- but it's the salads I want. I bought some raw tahini yesterday. Simi and I gave our Excalber dehydrator first-run with a case-lot sale on mangoes! So all is well. I love my new-still-mossy-salad-bowl, too! Oh! and I've been eatong with my fingers which feels great! Only thing I've got to watch is I'm eating a few too many olives -- I think I was up to 35 in one day -- gotta love those kalamatas!

I've developed iritis over the past week -- inflamed, painful iris of the eye -- I'm off to see the opthamologist today for some relief. The ironic part is I got after getting off the's so debililatating that if need be I'd take some steroid eye drops. I've researched and haven't found any alternative thearapies!

Lasqueti was wonderful -- went for a beautiful community Summr Solstice celebration, followed by a dance with the phenomenal Lasquei marimba band -- Constanze and I kicking up our heels and celebrating our feast accomplishments!
Paddy also managed to truck our framing wood lumber up our 4x4 road with help and started our cement house footings!

Summer is upon us!

DAY 108! The end!

Today is my final day of just juice! Today's final juice f(e)ast juice will be: pineapple, apple, pear and cinnamon! I've got a few prunes soaking to add to my smoothie tomorrow, and if all goes well weather-wise, I'll break the feast surrounded by my fellow juiceluckers and family down at the beach tomorrow on day 109...I will post the video! THANK YOU EVERYONE!

DAY 105, after three days on Galiano Island!

DAY 105! I've started counting not in terms of how far I've come, but how close I am to the end! I just can't wait for salad! Over the past few weeks I haven't been able to tolerate any greens in my juices -- at least not ones that I've made (Ayrie's grass juices I still love!) -- so, though I know my juices are evidently not fullfiling my daily nutritional needs lately, it doesn't help with the reintroduction of greens. So, I've definitely been short on protein. I did however enjoy the juice I added 3 shots of frozen wheatgrass too, along with three cubes of E3 Live.

Today I returned from three day of meetings (part of my elected official position as part of local government for the Gulf Islands of BC) -- it was arranged for me to stay in a little cabin that had its own kitchenette. So what did I do in preparation? Brought my juicer, fruit and veggies (the veggies returned home with me!) and had a fabulous few days. I joined the rest of the council members for two vert fancy evening meals...4 courses and the whole 9 yards, and me with my mason jar!

Today is DAY 100!

Yesterday, on Day 99, we gathered for our weekly Victoria JuiceLuck and had the supreme pleasure of having David and Katrina join with us!

I made the best juice I've made to date: pineapple, strawberry and pear. Beautiful and delicious!

I am now ready for my feast to come to an end -- which feels wonderful and complete! Monday, June 16th -- 8 more days will be the end of just juice. Originally I thought it a little odd to start the feast in March, when produce is still not readily available -- but now I'm fell it was in fact the perfect time because as we transition off the feast, there is plenty of produce to encourage healthy eating habits post-feast!

I am attaching yesterday's JuiceLuck video! Join in our celebration!

Day 97! And a crock!

It's DAY 97 this very rainy (where did summer go?) Thursday morning!

I weighed myself this morning, and I've lost 42 pounds to date! And I feel good!

Over the last few days, I went to the sauna and hot tub at the local pool for a little detoxing, but mainly to warm up. Though I'm not as cold as I was earlier on in the cleanse, I still feel challenged in that department. I went for accupuncture yesterday, with each point feel very electric -- I was told this was a good sign that my chi was up! I was also given a few moxa sticks a stick you burn lie incense above some of the crucial accupuncture points that relate to me! After that I went and "did juice" with my dear friend Adam from out-of-town, which was very uplifting!

Plus, over the last few days, I've been scouring the internet in search of the perfect crock so that I can make myself raw sauerkraut after the feast. I found plenty of new ones, but once they got shipped to Canada (with the possibility of fracture), the price was exorbitant. So I started perusing the local on-line classifieds and found several listed. I found one woman who was selling a whole raft of Medalta crocks, and so i assumed that she must really know crocks. I drove for 45 minutes out to her place, after having asked her beforehand whether they were cracked and she said no. I got there, and they were cracked all over (bacteria can settle in them, its very important that they be crack free inside). I was dissapointed. Yesterday, the same thing happened. I had checked beforehand, got there...cracked. However, it was a 4 gallon one for $20 dollars, I bought it, and will use it for kindling in my new place. In searching and studying the web I discovered all about the Red Wing Antique crocks and how highly valued they were. And I found one locally: 2 gallons for $45 -- with no cracks! I bought it this morning, knowing I was walking away with something valued possibly in the hundreds. I'm delighted and it will work!

DAY 92! Official end of The Global Juice Feast...but I'm still going on!







108...HERE I COME!

Yesterday Paddy and Simi went to the store and bought a flat of flowers - cosmos, marigolds, lupins and others -- and planted me a celebratory Day 92 garden -- a bounty of colour extending from the front door! What gems!

I'm going to post our yesterday's juiceluck video -- as well as our Week 1 video -- what shifts!

And the great news is that David and Katrina Rainoshek are coming up next week for our next juiceluck! We'll be feasting with gurus!
