    I am doing an extended juice feast.  I hope to go for about 30 days, but I’m taking it one day at a time.  So far I feel fabulous.  I jumped right into without any difficulty, which is not always the case.  Often I feel tired & get an occasional headache.  Yeah for an easy start!

    During a feast I drink 3-4 quarts of fresh juice a day along with water, wheatgrass juice, herbal teas & a little miso & hot water when I need it to warm up.  🙂  And it has been FREEEZING out, so I have had needed stuff to warm me up!

    Potty talk:  I started out doing salt water flushes to clean out my colon, but didn’t love the results.  I was feeling kinda bloated.  So today I did an enema & that helped release some junk from my body.  YEAH!

    If you would like to participate in a cleanse this month, I am offering two different options:  A 7 day raw food cleanse & a 3-5 juice feast.  Click here for details.

    Wishing you a JUICY day!  xoxo 

    The World According to Monsanto – a documentary

    by  • May 29, 2013 • community, movies, Uncategorized, videos • 0 Comments

    May 25th at 2pm marked the global “March Against Monsanto.”  Dozens of cities across the world participated in this event, including Portland, Maine, and it was such a thought provoking rally and march … and infuriating, really.  I keep having thoughts about Monsanto pop into my head I can’t help but wonder how they came about & how what they do is ok.

    So who is Monsanto?  Monsanto is a HUGE multinational agricultural biotechnology company that is literally ruining our global food source.  Monsanto is behind genetically modifying seeds, amongst many other damaging things.  They have modified seeds to create crops that grow in “desirable” ways and that are dependent on their very own herbicides & pesticides.  And they have patented their seeds requiring farmers who use them to buy their seeds each season.  These gmo (genetically modified) seeds then contaminate other fields and crops over and over again.

    Profit, profit, profit is what Monsanto is all about & the implications for their actions are absolutely horrific … I have barely scratched the surface.

    Nature is perfect and beautiful as it is.  When we start changing the DNA makeup of seeds in a chemical laboratory  to get them to do what we want them to do, we wreak havoc on the environment & our bodies.

    60-70% of today’s processed foods contain gmos (genetically modified foods) and if you are a dairy and or meat eater, your dairy & meat are contaminated too because factory farm animals are fed gmo foods.

    A recent study in rats who ate an all gmo diet developed tumors and lived less than half of their life expectancy.  Does that sound healthy & harmless to you?

    I watched the French documentary “The World According to Monsanto” over the weekend and I hope you will too.  We all need to educate ourselves about what is happening with our food supply & speak up with our voices & our pocketbooks.

    Eating organic food is one way to stay clear of gmos.  Certified organic food is never genetically modified, so support your organic farmers & take care of your bodies!
