Juice and Water Fast Day No.8

I’m coasting through my last few days of my 10 day fast. That’s really how it feels. At this point it doesn’t take a lot of effort to maintain. On my 8th day of fasting, this is officially the longest fast I’ve done so far. Up to this point my longest fast was 7 days.

 My favorite juice today was fresh honeydew juice. It was so delicious, frothy, sweet, rich, creamy… I could go on! Only 1/2 of my honeydew filled a very large glass. I’m about to juice the other half after writing this. I look amazing, if I do say so myself. My skin is bright and smooth, my body is leaner, and my eyes are brighter. I find myself pulling my hair back and just looking at my pretty face in the mirror.

A fellow faster described fasting as a gift we give to ourselves. I wholeheartedly agree. It is a wonderful gift. Before fasting I was craving, and at times indulging in, cooked foods that I knew were not good for me. Throughout my fast I’ve observed that the only foods I think about are high vitality raw foods. I love this!

The honeydew melon in the fridge is calling my name, and I must answer.

Wishing you inner peace and beauty,

Asante

Juice and Water Fast Day No.7

Day 7 of my 10 day juice fast has been great. I have been so inspired lately, and I’m really excited about growing my business. Today the fact that I’m fasting hasn’t been foremost on my mind. I’ve been able to go about the day pretty much as usual. I feel aware of the fact that I’d like to eat, but it’s not as overwhelming as in the first few days.

I feel great in my body! My little one told me today that i was look prettier…lol. She sees my increased shine. Everything about my body in leaner and smoother. I developed a little headache today, but it was nothing serious. I’m still detoxing, although the symptoms are very mild. My husband suggested that I include bentonite clay in my fast. Bentonite clay absorbs impurities and toxins and helps the body express them more rapidly. I chose to do this fast with juice and water, but next time I may include bentonite clay.

Today I enjoyed a huge cucumber, celery, dandelion green, and apple juice. I also enjoyed water and coconut water. Little one always asks for some of my juice and sneaks pieces of whatever I’m juicing. She thinks she being sneaky when she takes pieces of orange or apple that I’ve prepared to juice. It’s so cute.

In anticipation of eating solid food again I ordered the book Sweet Gratitude: A New World of Raw Desserts. It’s a raw dessert recipe book created by my favorite raw restaurant Cafe Gratitude. I’m in love with Cafe Gratitude and I can’t wait to make their yummy desserts!

Wishing you love, peace, and joy on your phenomenal journey,

Beautiful Day!

It’s a beautiful day! I’m off to play in the park with my Little Lotus, and enjoying the 7th day of my 10 day juice and water fast. Yesterday I enjoyed lots of fresh fruit juice. It was wonderful, but I could feel the difference from the days that I enjoyed lots of green juice. So today I am juicing mustard greens, celery, cilantro, and dandelion greens. Green juices makes me electric!

I am so excited about 2011. I have a feeling that I’m approaching a fabulous breakthrough. I have so many wonderful ideas for my business, that I can’t wait to implement. For example, I’m writing an ebook to offer for free on my website. It is the first of many gifts that will be available. Life is good and the sky is the limit.

Wishing you a day full of bliss,

Asante

Juice and Water Fast Day No.6

I’ve made it over the hump and I feel really good. I do not feel hungry at all, and my energy levels are really high. I love this because I know the energy is truly my vitality and not a stimulant.

Today I bought a case of Thai coconuts. I enjoyed the water from two coconuts, and it was delicious. Along with my Thai coconut water I loved a couple of glasses of orange/apple juice and lots of water. When I say glasses I really mean large Mason jars. What is it about being in a Mason jar that makes a drink taste better? I didn’t drink any green juice, however. Tomorrow I will make it a point to drink green juice; it gives me instant vitality.

Wishing you bliss, bliss, and more bliss,

Juice & Water Fast Day No.5

I’m half way to there! The 5th day of my 10 day fast has gone wonderfully. I have enjoyed copious amounts of orange juice, and I experimented with a juice that was something like a soup using Napa cabbage, cucumber, tomato, lime, and jalapeno pepper. It was really good, although it was a very strong juice. My detox symptoms have almost stopped, except for my runny nose, and I feel wonderful.

Yesterday I was invited to join the Sexy Vegan 5 Day Juice Feast on Facebook, so I’ll get to do another juice feast beginning January 3rd. I’m really excited! Fasting and juice feasting (another name for a juice fast) are such simple and powerful tools for radiant health. This quote was passed on to me today from juice feast friend Drew, and I’ll pass it on to you,

“… fasting is not a cure of any disease or ailment. The purpose of the fast is to allow the body full range and scope to fulfill its self-healing, self-repairing, self-rejuvenating functions to the best advantage. Fasting is probably the fastest and safest way or means of regaining health ever conceived by the human man. … Fasting puts the body in a condition where all the Vital Force of the body is used to flush out the causes of body miseries” -Dr. Paul Bragg. 

Wishing you phenomenal joy,

Asante

Juice & Water Fast Day No.4!

Today is the 4th day of my 10 day juice and water fast. We attended a Christmas party last night, and I was still able to maintain my fast. I am so proud of my will power! I know there are several groups holding fasts right now, and to you I send my sincere love. My detox symptoms lasted into today. I had a runny nose for most of last night and this morning, but by early evening it was gone. I embrace these detox symptoms, because I know it means my body is letting go of mucous, excess lymph fluid, extra water, undigested food, and environmental pollutants… things I don’t want hanging around in my body. It feels uncomfortable while these things are coming to the surface, but I know I’ll feel amazing once they are gone. Last night I noticed my hands, which have been chapped for weeks due to cold weather, were smooth and no longer chapped. That was unexpected! My hands have also become more slender and defined as I let go of excess water and lymph fluid.

The detox symptoms I’ve experienced over my first 4 days of my 10 day fast have been:

  • migraine headache
  • nausea
  • increased body odor (including bad breath)
  • runny nose
  • low energy
  • brain fog

 So far I have experienced these benefits:

  • increased flexibility in joints
  • more slender and defined figure
  • much smoother skin
  • increased optimism
  • feeling amazing in my body (between detox symptoms…lol)
  • decreased cravings for unhealthy foods

I think I’ll include light exercise in my day starting tomorrow. For the first few days I didn’t have the energy for exercise, but I do now. Today I’ve enjoyed lots of water and a big glass of celery, apple, dandelion green, lemon juice. It was yummy. When we returned home from the party last night I enjoyed a big glass of apple juice with a lemon, which made it taste like strong lemonade. It was delicious!

Wishing you the most amazing day!

Juice & Water Fast Day No.2

The fruits in our kitchen have never smelled so good. I can smell bananas from across the room…lol. I can’t wait to eat one! And an avocado, and a persimmon! I can do it though, just 8 days to go. I’ve found, through my own experience and the experience of others, that the first three days are the toughest.

I love fasting, I feel like I am resetting my body. I decided to fast for several reasons. My biggest reason is that I was making unhealthy food decisions. After a fast I find it a lot easier to resist cravings for unhealthy food. Another reason I chose to fast is to start 2011 with a clear mind, body, and spirit.

Day 2 of my fast is has gone really well, although I’ve had a detox headache for the last two days. I am drinking lots of warm water and skin brushing each day which will help my body to detoxify. Today I enjoyed celery, apple, spinach, garlic juice and lots of water.I’m about to drink a huge glass of fresh orange juice. My sweet husband has just gone to the store for organic oranges; you can’t believe how excited I am about that orange juice!

Beauty & love to you,

Asante
