Day 5 and the newest family member

I'm five days into the feast and I'm already changing my "to-do" list.
Number 18 was reading my raw cookbooks. It's not as important any more. I have plenty of time to do that after the feast. I really don't want to look at delicious raw food right now. What was I thinking?

So, I thought it would be fun to go through my 15 or so juice books and follow the recipes and comment on those. I have my favorites that I will be my staples (spinach juices, anyone?) but I'm going to branch out a bit and try new combinations.

I think that sticking closer to green juices and staying away from the fruit juices is helping me tremendously during this feast. I feel really calm and centered.

The times you might notice I do have a fruit juice is when I needed a bit of a sugar rush or if I know I'm going to be working out within the hour or so and I'm going to burn the sugar.

I'm defiantly thinking more about what I consume, why I consume it and how it will work for me. That's a change for me.

This post has been happily interrupted by the introduction of our newest unnamed family member.

Fair warning: Don't let your husband and son go off "looking" at puppies.

They won't come home empty-handed.

What a beautiful puppy! We just got another puppy as well, on 1 December. His name was Brian for a few days, but now it's Chester! ;o)
