Yeah...this totally shocked me today about how late in the year it is already. Maybe because its been really mild, or I'm on the computer too much these days...
This weekend is going to be really fun though, because I get to hang out with Dhru of We Like It Raw and Philip of Lovingraw, plus a lucky person willing to get themselves to NYC this weekend for an amazing meal at Pure Food and Wine. Im really excited to meet whoever wins! All of you on here are smart people...you could easily win that contest! We all read good books, right?
To be totally honest, within the past couple of months, Ive really been digging the moving picture show (dvds, youtube) compared to reading good ol' fashioned books. I will start many, but its seems like lately Ive just been dabbling too much. Ive really been online a ton lately learning about friggin' fruit trees and honeybees. Go figure...
I got some really slick swimming goggles for when I swim over at my friend's building. They make swimming SO much more enjoyable, and it wont irritate your eyes. Im not really down with the whole chlorine pool issue of course and totally would prefer a saline-treated pool...but swimming is really great and I'll take whatever I can get.
Here is the most hardcore green juice you can make for yourself 6 days a week. Invest in your health. This might not be cheap, but do this for two weeks while also being raw, and your clarity and alkalinity will skyrocket.
I weigh 165-170lbs, 6'1''.
8 oz of wheatgrass juice. Ok...I know, I know. Hear me out.
Buy a tray, usually the price will be around $12-14 US. Juice half of that tray each day. Maybe even a third if you are small.
Make sure the grass is fairly high, around 6-7 inches before harvest.
5 stalks of celery
3 lemons (or blend the peeled lemons w/pith in the vitamix after making the green juice to retain seed and fruit fiber) Of course they should be organic, but just the fact that you are consuming 3 lemons a day is a HUGE step in your wellness and alkalinity.
Cilantro if you have it, otherwise parsley. Yhe stems and all.
If I have some kale on hand or collards, usually $2 worth is fine.
So overall, juicing this yourself, I think the cost would be about $12. Maybe a little less...UNLESS YOU GROW YOUR OWN. Think about how much wheatgrass you are consuming each day, and what that would cost at the juice bar. 8 oz at $2 an oz? No joke!
This drink will change your life. 6 days a week...youll learn to love the taste. Starting this next year in April Ill be growing all my own wheatgrass in Minnesota, and I might even have to do it in Paris if I cant find a good source. Its kind of a pain at first, but if you have the space for it and set it up so its efficient and easy to clean up, then youre on the fast-track to vibrancy and re-mineralization.
I just buy mine now, because I dont have the good light or space for the trays here at the apartment. And it does save alot of time, you have to set up a good system to be effective in the long term.
Have a great weekend everyone! Make the most of it! Maybe a little day trip somewhere? You write the story, remember!
