…..juice is the truth! Simply blend and drink up! No water needed, but optional.
Watermelon is a superfood that is epic for detoxing! Which is why I love it. Detoxing allows us to purge and vibrate higher. It activates wellness and raises our frequency; mind, body and spirit. We come into contact with so many pollutants and toxins in the air and water….let alone through people, energy traps and energy vampires. Detox often, as you continue your life’s journey of vibrating higher daily.
I drink a few glasses daily and will often do a 3 day juice fast with just watermelon juice, freshly squeezed lemon juice added to it and plenty of water in between. Google the many other amazing benefits of Watermelon/juice.

It’s been two weeks since I last posted, and I’ve missed you terribly. The truth (part one) is, I didn’t know what to say. I’ve been heartbroken in so many various and sundry ways, and silence felt like the only possible response. The truth (part two) is, I haven’t wanted to reach out. I’ve wanted to stay very quiet, and very still, to possibly be so still and so quiet that I would not feel all the layers of hurt that have curled themselves up around my heart. But I know I can’t stay silent forever, and I know that now is as good as two days from now. So here we are. I want to tell you a bit about what’s been happening, some of which you know, and some of which you don’t.
And I made us a juice to get through. It’s wintery and light, packed with immune system boosting vitamin C and fresh ginger, and hydrating cucumber. It’s quick and delicious and you only need a blender to make it. It’s colors and zinginess have given me hope in the midst of much darkness. So. Juice-equipped, let’s talk.
Here’s what you don’t know:
Today, the mother of one of my dearest friends in the world will be laid to rest. As you read this, I might be standing in a rain-soaked cemetery in Mill Valley, or sitting shiva in a betrayingly bright apartment in San Francisco, or continuing to sort out the pieces of my grief in this loss from my grief in the losses that came before.
I watched the documentary Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead, since it was recommended by my bosses and I was pretty blown away by the transformation Joe Cross had by juicing for 60 days. After discovering that his health dramatically deteriorated because of his unhealthy diet, he decided to go on a juice fast and only drank freshly-made juice for 60 days in hopes that adopting a plant-based diet will reverse the damage his previous diet had done to his body. By the time he completed his fast, he lost a total of 100 pounds, and no longer had to take any of the medications he took prior to his fast. He also inspired another unhealthy dieter Phil Staples to go on a juice fast as well. Phil successfully completed the fast and got his health back on track (as shown in the pictures).
This documentary truly proves that adopting a plant-based diet reverses the damage that animal-based diets do, which inspires me even more to adopt a permanent vegetarian lifestyle. I definitely recommend this movie to everyone, especially to those who are struggling with their health.
Hydrating, belly-fat-fighting, and high in antioxidants, this refreshing green drink is the perfect way to complement a healthy breakfast. Or anytime during the day really. This recipe makes a big batch of approx. 4 servings.
5 dl spinach
3 stalks celery
½ bunch parsley
2 apples, cored
¼ orange, peeled
¼ lime, peeled
¼ lemon, peeled
1 bunch fresh mint
¼ pineapple, peeled
Place the ingredients in a blender (you can leave the skins on the apples and cucumber) and puree, adding water or ice as needed.
