10 Day Break…

Ten days on, and now, 10 days off? I am afraid to step on the scales. I figure I’ve probably gained 5 lbs. back. I’ll weigh in the morning, promise, and I’ll at least note the weight if I don’t snap a pic. lol

I had purchased containers of Greek yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese, and cream cheese the day before I watched Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, and I’ll most likely be tossing them in the garbage if someone else doesn’t eat them soon. I have not been swollen over the past 10 days since eating regular food, so it could very well be the dairy that was causing that. I also need to come back off the coffee and start drinking my tea and lemon water again.

What I have been missing is bread and butter. Lord, do I miss the butter, and more so than the bread. I’ve had at least 1 full tablespoon every day since coming off the fast – on grits, on toast, on baked potato — so not good! :\ I should probably pick up a few avocados for the fat content so I’m not missing it.

Anyhow, tomorrow I will be starting the juicing again. I’ve got collard greens, cucumbers, carrots, apples, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, pineapple, garlic, ginger, and bottled lemon juice in the refrigerator.ย  I will also be busy in my garden. I’ve got seeds for broccoli, small carrots, peas, spinach, beets, kale, leaf lettuce, gourmet blend lettuce, and baby greens. I still need to find Brussels sprouts, Swiss chard and cauliflower seeds, so will do that this weekend. I had a great fall crop last year of all the greens that grew right through to this past spring, and it’s time to get busy planting! ๐Ÿ™‚

Day 10: Fruit Juice

I got 5 hours of sleep last night, and I have been dragging all day. I knew if I took a nap, that it would turn into a 4 hour long siesta, so took quite a few breaks from work.ย  Good thing I’m not on anyone’s time clock, because I did not get productive until after lunch, and even then, it was slow going.

I did manage to make a new recipe this morning through a sleep-fogged brain, and it wasn’t too bad – a bit too thick for my liking though. A little water in the blender with it should help thin it out. I will probably strain it tomorrow – or not, since as we all know, we need the fiber to go…

I did not get a photo today. I will do that when I have better light tomorrow, so I’ll just include the recipe here until the photo is taken. If you’re diabetic, you may want to cut this by half or more with water. It’s sweet.

Pineapple – Tropical Fruit – Cocktail Fruit Juice

In a blender:

Pour 1 can of pineapple, juice and all.
Pulse till smooth.
Pour 1 can of Tropical fruit, juice and all.
Pulse till smooth.
Drain 1 can of fruit cocktail.
Discard the liquid and pour the fruit into the blender.
Pour 1/2 a bottle of unprocessed, unsweet apple juice into blender.
Blend for 5 minutes.
Let sit overnight in the refrigerator for flavors to mingle.
Reblend individual servings to smooth out the pulp.
Juice may be cut by half with cold water to cut sweetness.

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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 theย  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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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