I travel to Marshall every Wednesday and work with the Get Healthy Marshall group. They are so incredibly supportive of any healthy endeavor, so it was no surprise when I arrived and they had already had the juicer out. We tried a crazy mix of beets, kale, apples, celery, carrot, ginger, radish, italian parsley, and spearmint. The juice turned out the darkest shade of magenta that you’ve ever seen and boy, did it have ZING!
We listened to Victoria Moran’s Main Street Vegan Radio Show on Unity FM. Her guest today was none other than Joe Cross of Fat Sick and Nearly Dead. I highly recommend listening to the show. It’s available any time, not just live. You can listen on iTunes or Stitcher. It was so great to hear Victoria interview this legend of the juicing community. He made some great points about the fact that we all need to love ourselves and be connected to vegetables. When this connection is lost, health suffers.
On the way home, I had to re-stock my supply of produce. Kroger had some nice pears, pineapples, blueberries and greens. So I loaded up and am ready for the rest of the week.
One lesson that I have learned on this journey is to not let my blood sugar get too low. In other words, I don’t go too many hours without a juice. It can leave you hungry, dizzy and pretty morose. If I stay on schedule with the juices and water then everything is fine.
I’d love to hear from some of you that are following along. If you’ve juiced before, what lessons did you learn?
