4) to connect with the Earth through the raw food I consume.
I'm planning to start with juice feasting for the first week or two, then add smoothies, and add solid raw food by the end of the month and maybe some cooked vegan food later. I don't think I will eat 100% raw for the rest of my life, but I will aim for the highest percentage of uncooked nutritious content in my diet.
I liked the motivational video that Penni posted today on her website to encourage more than 300 people who signed up to participate in the cleanse this month. So, I'm going to repost it here:
I enjoyed my day today. I made about 2 liters of green juice in the morning and drank it all day. Around 7 pm, I made some more fruit juice that I enjoyed much more.
For juice #2, I used the following ingredients:
1 lemon, 4 tangerines, 1 cup of each strawberries, sweet cherries, and blueberries, and 1 apple.
Here is before and after pictures. These fruits and berries produced a little less than 2 glasses of very delicious juice.
