Adventures in Juicing!

See all those beautiful fruits and veggies covering my counter and filling my fridge?  Why you may ask did we buy so many?  Are we canning them?  Are we hosting a big fruit and veg based party?  No!  As you may have guessed we are juicing them!  We have decided to start our journey on a juice cleanse and it’s amazing the amount of fruit and veg it takes to sustain you for a week of juicing.  I’m thinking in the future just getting a few days worth of food at a time so it’s not so overwhelming looking.  Why are we doing this?  Well, you see a few weeks back we watched a documentary called “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” and it had a big impact on both Steve and I.  You see, the basic premise is that there is this guy who is very overweight and has some health issues decides to go on a 60 day juice cleanse to try to address both of these things.  The idea of the weight loss and jumpstarting a new way of eating is immensely appealing as well as a way to feel better.  Lately I’ve been feeling really bogged down by life and I think a lot of this is the fact that we haven’t been eating as well as we should be.  I’m hoping that I start feeling better, maybe I won’t have so much nasal congestion after this and some more weight loss would be awesome.  So we’re starting today and hoping to make it 60, we’ll see how it goes!
