There was the most bizarre cafe/store/gas station by our hotel that was cranking out some serious fresh juices.  My new fave flavor combination is apple, beet, ginger.

Yesterday, on day two of the 15 day Re-boot Juice Fast, I made the closest thing I could find that could replicate a tortilla chip. In twenty four hours I went from brand new and excited juice faster to,” Oh my god if I don’t dip something into something and eat it, I am going […]

7/13 Getting Prepared

I have three more days to  prepare my body and mind for the fifteen day fruit/veg/juice fast that begins on Monday. I am more afraid than I thought I would be. It is funny how enthusiasm can so easily make way for fear  the closer the  starting line approaches.  I am all of a sudden […]
