Day 8 Juicing.............All great!

I am trucking along on the juice thing. I really have it ,I really do FINALLY!!!!!! I absolutely have no desire to chew food and my mind is set to not think of food either at this point. Hip Hip Hooray! I am stoked. I feel so good,the sun is shining and I fell clean I mean really clean -in and out.
  You know the more I think about this journey the more I get why I really am doing it. Knowing that I grew up with everything  food wise meat included. Sadly I was brought up to eat everything on our plates as kids. I say crap on that . I will say I really never was a huge meat eater even as a child ,and could remember at Christmas for instance we always had Prime Rib ,I say So What. I ate it as we had to but never liked it and Thanks god I am now nor never was a fan of steak. Yuk I say,as I was more of a fish lover. Long story short as I grew older I chose to take a cleaner eating approach and we raised our kids with a balanced diet ,but as they got older they also chose to  eat whatever  they want. I myself really made a turn to Raw around age 49 as I am going to be 53 years young in Dec of this year. I love eating Raw /Vegan food and I feel so good doing so. Don't knock this lifestyle if you haven't tried it~

Lambs quarter from the woods
My lambs quarter juice with other stuff too

Today was another sunny 81 degree day -just beautiful......After awakening and drinking 32 ounces of water with lemon squeezed into it I made this~I made this wonderful amount of juice today from these ingredients: 2 Cup lambs quarters,4 dandelion leaves,1.5 cucumber,6 stalks celery, small romaine,1 small zucchini 2 limes, 1C. spinach 1 golden delicious apple....And this drink was not bitter either as lambs quarter is mild.

Discovering Edible Lambs Quarter Weeds
Lambs Quarters.thumbnail Surprising Lambs QuartersAs with any edible weed or wild plant don’t eat unless you are positive of its identification and that it has not been exposed to chemical sprays or pollution. So if you’re not familiar with lambs quarter refer to a good edible weed field guide or consult with someone who is familiar with the plant before eating it.
Lambs quarter can frequently be found growing in vegetable gardens, on disturbed soil, and along the fringes of fields and banks. The plants can grow to about four feet in height with multiple branches forming off of a main squarish looking central stem. Lambs quarter leaves often have a white, pollen-like substance coating their undersides.
Now the husband and I are going to give all 3 dogs outside since it is incredibly warm today and the weather is said to change tomorrow~

I always end my day with a bath and skin brushing. I also drink wheatgrass 1.5 hours before bedtime. Why 1.5 hours I don't know I just do it

Hi Dianne! Thank you for the inspiration! I have everything in the fridge and will be starting my juice feast this Thursday morning. I will have to keep my eyes open for Lamb's quarters in my area. I live in the woods, so not many open fields here, I wonder if I will find any!

Greetings! I just started juicing again, and was looking for an inspirational blog. This is the first time that I have actually kept up the juicing without craving food! I just tried lambs quarters, and love them. Do you grow your own? I just saw them for the first time at my co-op in Portland, Or.
