Day 66 - Breaking the Feast!

Independence Day was the 65th and final day of my juice feast. Yesterday I enjoyed a sweet and rich pineapple/kale/ginger juice. A few hours later, I indulged in half a bowl of dried plums (organic and unsulphured, which had pleasantly plumped after an overnight soak. It was a bit strange to be chewing food, soft though it was, after more than 2 months of drinking everything. Other than a moment of slight nauseousness, I felt fine. Later, I had another small juice and then finished the plums.

It surprised me to find that I wasn't ready to end the feast. Before I started, I would've imagined I'd be glad to bring it to an end and enjoy solid food again. Instead, I'm grateful for what I've gotten from the feast, and I'm a little sad to bring it to completion just now.

Day 64

My plan was to post about how this was the final day of my feast. Logically I know I have to wind it up very soon, because of our travel plans, but my spirit longs to stay juicy for a bit longer. Continuing to feast would be very easy right now. I have no desire to move to solid food just yet, but I'll have to bow to practicality.

I went for a 2 hour walk today, and jogged about 3 miles of it. That's become my weekend routine over the last several weeks.

Today's juice:
pineapple/spinach/celery/ginger
grapefruit/orange
watermelon (It's at its juicy best when you squeeze it by hand rather than use the blender. Go make some!!!)
grapefruit/orange
