I’m in Calgary, Canada and just finished a marathon weekend of teaching and catering a dinner for 100 people. Wow! I can’t believe how much I just crammed into the last 4 days! Saturday I catered a Raw, Asian-Fusion dinner for 100 people, Sunday I taught a 4 hour Indian Foods class to 16 people and today I did a 6 hour hands on intensive with 6 students. These hours do not include clean up and socializing so it was pretty much 4 12 hour days back to back. I was around so much amazing food but did not feel tempted to eat it. Except there was this moment at the dehydrator tonight when I was loading it up with raw, spinach-mushroom quiches and I really wanted to eat some, I thought about breaking a piece off and popping it in my mouth and then thought….nah! So I’m feeling so pleased and happy with myself for a successful weekend of teaching and catering and am so glad to be finished. It was a whirlwind and my energy stayed quite high, but enough is enough. Time to go back home to my new home in Patagonia and be with my love.
New and interesting cleansing symptoms:
I got a live blood cell analysis at Journey of Health by Cody Dahl here in Calgary. He is the most thorough man I’ve met when it comes to live blood cell. He showed me all kinds of scary and crazy stuff. Turns out I have an abundance of yeast (as I expected) but what I didn’t expect was mold in droves (big black ugly demonic looking things) and cholestorol! The bad kind!!!! It was prolific too. I got a little depressed, and also motivated to keep going. It really explains a lot of things to see that kind of stuff in my blood. He also told me there are lots of undigested proteins and I have very weak digestion in my stomach which explains why when I ate, everything seemed to bloat me! He gave me some great and useful tips for when I begin to eat again that I know will make a huge difference and things I already knew like I need to cut out all carbs including most fruits for…get this…3 years!!!!! Gulp! Well I want vibrant health, so I’ll do it. I’ve come this far right?
I’ll share more about my food choices when I begin eating again.
I have never had a bladder infection in my life, but about 3 hours ago it started aching when I went pee. My friend Tonya said that happened to her when she was juice feasting and it lasted about a day and 1/2.
My tounge has finally lost most of it’s white coat. It’s now pretty pink and my mouth feels fresh most of the time except after drinking orange juice or eating bee pollen. Speaking of which…the best bee pollen on the planet is Jarrah Bee Pollen from VivaPura.net. I’ve had tons of bee pollens, but none as good as this one. I eat about 2-3 handfuls a day!
My eyes are brighter, my skin is clearer and my clothes are way looser. My teeth are whiter, my energy is lighter and my mood more even keel.
I’m drinking on average about 3 quarts of green juice a day and 1 quart of orange-grapefruit or Salsa juice.
I’ve been finding all kinds of new juices to love and admire. Here are a couple faves:
Mmmmmmm! Tastes like salsa.
6 cups of tomatoes
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 chopped red onion
1/2 bunch cilantro
juice of 1 lemon
salt to taste
cayenne to taste
1/2 tsp. smoked chipotle pepper powder
Blend in Vitamix then strain through The Amazing Nut Milk, Juice and sprout bag.
This one tastes smooth and easy.
1 bunch cilantro
1 bunch parsley
2 large heads of celery
Put all veggies through the Green Star juicer beginning with the parsley and cilantro and ending with cucumbers for best ease.
This is the end of day 23. In the past that would seem like such a long time to go without eating, and now I’m thinking it’s just a drop in the bucket to get all the way to day 100. Well, Just one day at a time. On day 30 I’ll be almost 1/3 of the way. I heard from a French Canadian here that the third month is where it got really good. She felt so spiritual, light and free. That is something worth working towards!
