maybe, at some point, a juice fast will be fun to try, but at present, the goal is to take a wellness approach to integrating "juice" into a healthy lifestyle.
sidenote: when you write down every, single thing that you eat (on your worldwide blog), you think very seriously about what you'll be putting into your mouth. .. :)
it really keeps you honest.
january 28, 2009:
- green tea
- smoothie (left over from last night)
- small spinach salad
- rice & vegetable soup (left over from yesterday)
- smoothie (with over 20 oz in the fridge for tomorrow)
- 16 oz water
- sprout salad (w/kale, spinach, tomato) -- the lite caesar salad dressing was probably the worst thing that i've put in my body for 3 days (and 7 out of 8 days).
well, the first thing is that "eating raw, alive food" is not a quick-fix, or a gimmick, or a starvation experience. ..it is a change in eating behavior.
is it sustainable? ..every individual will probably experience an increase in raw food intake in his/her own way. ..the key to sustainability would probably be a slow infusion, coupled with positive experiences (e.g. good taste, easy clean-up, low cost, low maintenance, etc.).
