I’ve seen so many documentaries about food like OMG GMO, Food Inc., Forks Over Knives, The Beautiful Truth, and Thrive. Plus I have devoured many great books like Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan, Animal Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver, and two great kid’s books by Ruby Roth, Vegan is Love and That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals. Recently I watched Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead and decided to embark on my own juicing cleanse.
February 27th – March 5th Week 1:
Morning Smoothie:

2 apples
4 bananas
2 oranges
1 – 2 c. frozen blueberries (picked last summer)
(optional)2 – 4 tblsp. fresh ground peanut butter


1/2 c. raw sunflower seeds
1/2 c. dried fruit (raisins, cranberry, diced apricot)
4 c. organic spinach
1 c. beans (black or garbanzo) or lentils
1 avocado
(Add whatever other raw foods you’d like – get creative!)
Oil, vinegar, tahini, salt to taste (Optional – lemon juice)

Dinner Green Juice:
8 leaves kale
4 carrots with greens
4 celery stalks
2 beets with greens
1 apple
2 – 4 in. piece of ginger root

Try varying these recipes however you like and feel free to share!
My goal is to see if I experience less joint ache and stiffness with greater energy levels.

One night I have scheduled a Miso Soup with tofu cubes and sauteed onion just to mix things up.
