So here we are today, and Greg and I have started our juice fast. Three weeks of planning and praying went into this very moment. And the morning came and I was completely overwhelmed. I was excited, for sure! But I was a little overwhelemed because I am not a very organized person. I was so excited to get to the actual juicing that I didn't bring all the food out at ounce. Thank goodness I cleaned it all last night.
We started with 3 red apples and 1 lemon. This was to get the kids introduced to it. Jackson really liked it, Bella did not and Gavin didn't try it. So then we did 3 apples and Bella was good to go. She really enjoyed it.
For Greg we made the Mean Green Juice from the documentary "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead".
4 celery stalks
3 green apples
Guess what? I forgot the kale in his juice this morning. So add kale to that, about 6-7 leaves or a few handfuls if it's cut up.
Here is Greg's reaction to his first sip. He was pretending to be Bear Grylls from Man vs. Wild.
I took a sip. I didn't like it at first. But I don't normally like one single thing that was in the juice. On second sip it was better. I didn't make myself one because I decided to finish what Bella and Jackson didn't finish of their apple juices. Greg thinks I was just trying to get out of having that mean green juice, but really, I didn't want to waste theirs....no, really, it's true! ha!
I titled this post Day 1 - Resurrection - because what came to mind first thing today was "we are alive in Christ". Because of Christ and the Resurrection, I can do all things and all things are NOT impossible.
"I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me" Philippians 4:13.
I will post here each day and evening. Pray for us and send us your encouragement, this is a huge opportunity for growth with our Lord and growth in our health. We MUST take control of our health, so the "health" care system doesn't have to!
