Day 9: One meal break-in

Day 9: I absolutely refuse to feel guilty.

Some say bad luck comes in threes. What I’ve just done, I’m not even going to sniff about, because it has been one of those days.

(1) Woke up with no water, and the pump wasn’t fixed until after noon today.

(2) The almonds I soaked last night to make more almond milk today – soured in the blender. (Yay me, because I didn’t catch it until after I’d rinsed the almonds and put in fresh water, and tasted it. YUCK! I gagged.

(3) I have nothing – nada – to add to my kale except more frozen foods, which were just pulled from the freezer (at 11:30PM)

(4) The axle on my wheelchair broke. (It was Dad’s wheelchair, and has already been repaired once, and I’m now using one older than that one.)

I got in 8oz. of green tea, 16. oz. of the almond-sweet potato shake I made a couple days ago, and 16oz. of water today. I’m on the last 8oz cup of green tea, so that’s my intake on liquid and juices.

I am hungry — starving, in fact, and getting rather crabby about it. I’ve been a bit crabby all day, actually, because I have just been wanting something to chew! Well, I got a bowl, added 1/4 cup of gluten-free rolled oats, 1/2 cup of water, 1 TBS of flaxseed meal that I ground fresh this morning, and 1 TBS of low-fat peanut butter. It was good. I ate it too fast to even enjoy it, but I’m full. Pre-fasting, I was eating 3/4 – 1 cup of this every single morning, along with 2 TBS of brown sugar, so yeah, slight modification with a lot less of all of it.

I think the important thing for me to remember here, is that portion control is going to have to be something I watch…This from a woman who can eat like she’s some sort of tri-athlete competitor, whom she’s not, and then sop it all up with a plate of cane syrup, sour cream and 2.5 biscuits.  Totally addicted to food in any shape or form unless it’s rutabaga or liver (gag).

Anyhow, for today, since I do not have a juice recipe for you, I am going to point you over to Harvest Essentials for some quick and easy juices. Most have only 3-4 ingredients. The Blender also has a 30 Day of Juicing blog, and the recipes look rather tasty! 🙂

I will be back tomorrow, with hopefully, running water so I can get my juice on! =D See you then, and if you drop in, leave me some love in the comments! 🙂

Day 5: Double the recipe

I had a great day today! I had no headaches, and just a few minor aches and pains, but nothing major. The longer I stay on this fast, and I realize I’m still a “noob” in this regard, the more i want to follow the vegan lifestyle. I may include fish from time to time, but I want to concentrate mainly on whole fruits and vegetables.

I was directed to a wonderful video series featuring “Dan the Man”. He sounds like he knows what he’s talking about with the vegan lifestyle unlike your obese doctors who are telling you to lose weight, who are not taught nutrition in med school!

Other sites I was told about include the vegetarian sites: vegetariantimes.com, jazzyvegetarian.com, christinacooks.com , and allrecipes.com‘s vegetarian section.

Ok, enough chatter – I have two new recipes for you tonight. I am pretty excited about the first one, because it just looks so darn good, and it was just as refreshing as it looked, but the second one is just as delicious! 🙂

Whether you do or do not like beets, you have to try this. There is no “dirt” taste that some people find offensive to their taste buds, and it’s a sweet juice. It does need to be equally mixed with water. Pineapple – Beet Juice.

The other recipe I want to share is the  Pumpkin – Almond Milk Shake. No, you do not get to add any ice cream or frozen yogurt to thicken it up. Sorry! This is a low-cal, very smooth drink, and best served cold. 🙂

Enjoy! Let me know what you think if you try them!
