Day 3 (Thursday, 9/20/07): Green Juice is baaaaak!

For breakfast I had a terrific green juice ... and it set the tone of my day ... a good one. It's been a while since I had a green juice, and after I drank it I realized how much I missed them. It was the juice of a whole cucumber, two carrots, a large handful of kale, 4 celery stalks, and a handful of spinach.

For lunch I had a mixed green salad w/ a tiny bit of steamed artichoke and fennel, compliments of the salad bar at the office.

For an afternoon snack I had a "Kind" bar of dried fruit and nuts.

I walked to and from the office/train station this morning and plan to do the same heading home, but I still haven't gotten myself out in the mornings before work on a good long bike run or walk, but that will happen. I'm easing into being on a schedule again after having a whole month of unscheduled (vacation) time off work. It's harder than I anticipated to get back into a 12-hour work grind after all that time to myself! (Note to self: Must come up with another way to earn a living with a lot less work/commuting hours!)

I think it would be good to feature on a regular basis some helpful books and teaching videos for those wanting to learn more about raw food living and it's varied aspects. To help me remember to do that, I'll do it on the same day each week. So I hereby dub Thursday Book/Video day. I told a friend of mine I'd send him a book on juicing and it sent me browsing online, so the first book I'll feature is the one I'll be sending him. It's Steve Meyerowitz's Juice Fasting and Detoxification:

This contains a good excerpt on detoxification:

  • Borders Books - Juice Fasting and Detoxification

  • This lets you "look inside" the book and also offers used copies for sale:
  • Amazon Books - Juice Fasting and Detoxification

    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
