just liquids. a rest. a luxury.

i am getting ready to go on a 5 day juice fast with Dan McDonald- the life regenerator on April 1st. it is held at an ashram in Grass Valley. i am looking forward to it for a number of reasons. The peace of it, yoga, meditation, being at a place like this with no distractions. Dogs, child caring, food prepping, normal life. i will drive 7 1/2 hours to drive north east to just be, drink juice AND have an infusion of a very like minded soul. Dan Mcdonald spends his time eating and drinking fruits and vegetables and inspiring others via youtube to do the same. he is infectious, enthusiastic, charming, but most of all genuine. i will take a dose of genuine with my fruits and veggies anytime! after this year of prepping gorgeous gourmet raw food, it is a luxury for me to just DRINK. i am giving myself this rest and in prep for it have begun since yesterday a "liquiding" diet. i have wheatgrass first thing. 2 0z. then i have a blended fruit with water drink. pineapple, blueberry, strawberry, mango. i buy two 32 oz containers of veggie juice: beets,celery, parsley,spinach, ginger, garlic and lemon. i am fully equipped and capable of making my own juice. i just don't want to. i need to be away from the kitchen for just awhile. i imagine that in a couple of days i will want to make my own concoctions with watercress and fennel and other fun more obscure things. for now
i am happy to imbibe juice from the co-op. :)
i am doing this and the only thing you need to do if you think you are so far away from this is have ONE GREEN JUICE DAILY. there, i have said it. your body will guide you after that. love to all of you and many, many greens,
