Juice feasting

One Day's Worth of Produce.

Produce for a day of juice feasting – by David and Katrina

The juice feasting fever is spreading like wildfire amongst the raw community. Juice feasting means you can drink all fresh, nutrient dense juices for up to 92 days, healing and preventing almost every major health challenge in western society. The recommendation is to drink a gallon of juice thoughout the day incorporating a head of celery and 2 bunches of greens per day.

Using fresh raw juices was first made famous by Dr Max Bircher-Benner and Dr Max Gerson 100 years ago. Today it is used in spas, ayurvedic resorts, at the Hippocrates Institute and many health-related institutes. Now you can do it at home but will need to understand how to support yourself best through the program.

David and Katrina Rain have taken the concept further by taking in an increased amount of juice for a longer period of time as well as adding superfood supplements to the program for incredible results. You can check out their very informative website here as well as sign up to become a member.

You can juice feast for a day, for 3 days, for 10 days or anytime upto 92 days. You make the choice that is best for you. Juices help to cleanse, alkalize, rehydrate and rebuild.

There is also a global juice feast starting on March 1, 2008, when people will be juice feasting globally.

Most juice feasters choose to take the following supplements:


Green Powders

Hemp Oil, Coconut Oil

Bee Pollen

Neeta at Integral-dynamic writes about her delights and trials during her juice feasting as well as listing the blogs of other juice feasters.

Raw Juice will help to revive, refresh, rejuvenate and renew you. It will reverse the effects of life’s stresses and the effects can be remarkable. It will transform the way you look at life and put you in control of your destiny. You will be able to think more clearly and trivialities will cease to upset you. Just try a glass of raw juice and see how it makes you feel.

My next few posts will be continuing on this subject but will be relevant whether you decide to juice feast or not.

Have a juicy day.

Green Smoothie on Montel Show

21 Days to Transform Your Life, Supercharge Your Health, andFeel Spectacular

I am not a TV watcher so I appreciate it when I am passed on information that is relevant. My sister caught the Montel show today titled “Living Well: 21 days to change your life”. Montel has just come out with a book of the same name about the program that changed his life. I am a book worm so will look out for the book. Some of you might know that Montel has Multiple Sclerosis. He mentions the healing power of green drinks. He drinks a lot of them. His personal chef Mike makes them for him. Wow! A chef to make green smoothies. He calls them green drinks. Everyone in the audience got to taste one.

I am so happy that the Power of Green is being broadcast on almost every show out there. I encourage every single client of mine that if they choose to make one change, make it a Green Smoothie.

Check out Montel’s website.

Plus size model Emme who had lymphatic cancer was helped by his program. This is what Emme says on Amazon:

I was just on Montel’s show yesterday and I know that Living Well can transform who you are today. Trying a wholistic, natural alternative, or approach may make all the difference in your efforts. If you’ve been feeling poorly for a while, yoyo dieting, dealing with aches, pains and chronic ailments, going green may be just what you need for the results you want. I know juicing green and eating more veggies and fruits has helped me through my cancer treatment enormously and clearly Montel with his MS symptoms. Montel shares how he Lives Well and made it easy for you to do the same! Do yourself and your loved ones a favor, try his receipes and make a shift in your lifestyle for good.
Bye bye feeling bad, HELLO happiness!
To Health,

Very well said Emme.

Feel free to join the Green Revolution.

Maca – Primal Energy


Here is another superfood that I had mentioned in the recipe for Superfood Bliss. It is a wonderfully grounding and warming food for the winter.

Maca is a root that grows in the high mountains of Peru. It is rich in nutritional content (higher levels of calcium than milk). It is also known as Peruvian Ginseng. It grows at 3000 feet above sea level and is the only plant that can survive at that altitude because of extreme weather conditions. For 2000 years it has been an important traditional food and medicinal plant in its growing region. It is used for humans and animals.

Maca helps with

Energy and Stamina – It is considered an adaptogen and improves the ability of the body to handle stress

Hormonal balance (Menstrual pain, menopause, hot flashes,  libido, aphrodisiac, skin problems, menstrual irregularity, fertility, osteoporosis, increases DHEA levels)

Found to produce a sense of wellbeing

Great source of hormone precursors and amino acids. It provides many of the same effects created by a high protein diet.

Helps to improve levels of concentration for kids and promotes mental clarity

It comes in capsules and powder form. There is regular powder and gelatinized powder where the starch has been removed.

Look out for a recipe with maca tomorrow.
