Two weeks down, Ten to go! And pizza JUICE????

If you can't relate to the above picture, then you are dehydrated. I can't say that I'm peeing constantly, but I definitely have noticed this last week the mental note I've had to make to myself "you better go now otherwise you're not gonna be able to think if you continue doing what you are doing".

Today is my two week juice feast anniversary and I feel great. I don't miss eating at all and am still finding amazing recipes to try. I am so bummed that kiwis are so expensive as they are SO high in selenium which only broccoli is the other juicing item that I know that has as much and uh, well, kiwi's taste a lot better than broccoli. ;)

At any rate, someone posted this juice recipe that sounds amazing that I gotta try now after I get me an eggplant. I make a raw pizza like this, but I never considered making a JUICE out of it:


1 small Egg Plant
4 medium tomatoes
4 basil leaves
4 cloves garlic (to taste)
Toppings: Be creative
1 medium Onion
1 Red Peppers
2 chili peppers (remove seeds , or leave in for heat)

Finally, juicy peeps, here is a large inspiration on why I do raw foods and juice feasts. This woman is amazing and I hope to be like her in 30 years....(she's 70 now and looks just as divine as in this video)

And lastly, another great smoothie to try when I am back to "eating land":

Purple Green and Gold  Smoothie
vegan, serves 2

yellow/gold layer:

1 large banana
4-6 dashes turmeric (for color)

purple layer:

1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 banana

green layer:

1/3 cup baby spinach
1 large kiwi, peeled (a chilled kiwi works best)
3/4 cup apple juice
1 dash cayenne
pinch of fresh ginger, peeled/chopped (optional)


You will need to blend each layer separately – a high speed blender like a Vitamix works best.
Start with the yellow layer. Blend. Pour into a glass and set aside in freezer until ready for it.
Then blend the green layer (no blender rinsing needed). Pour and set aside.
Lastly, blend the purple layer.
Pour the purple layer into your serving glass first.
Followed by the green layer. Pour slowly.
Yellow to top it off.
You may have some extra of the yellow layer. Drink as you please!
