Day THREE January



Good Morning,

It is really the morning of Day Four, however we had a going away celebration for both of our sons last night, who are leaving today for Los Angeles, to open the first LA Cafe Gratitude. They have been with us (in CG) for years and I am only now beginning to get present to the HUGE contribution they are and how much I will miss them.
WE are thrilled for the LA opening and for all that will come of a Gratitude Community being in Southern California! Here we come!
We returned to the farm late last night and I was SO COLD in the yurt that I couldn't bring myself to blog... so here I am now.
First of all I want to say that along with JUICING, and whatever your program looks like, practice NOT MAKING YOURSELF WRONG... or start AFFIRMING YOURSELF and appreciating who you are. What could you be affirming about yourself today?
I was walking out to open the chicken coops this morning with deep front covering the land and thinking about what a kind woman I am. I starting affirming my commitment to kindness, and immediately my doubts about my own divinity began to melt away like the sunshine warming the frosted ground.
This morning I made a hot cocoa with raw cocoa powder and almond milk and it was so yummy. I also had some steamed kale last night, but realized that I also had a stomach ache on the way home, and don't really recommend that. So today it is back to liquids and JUICE. My favorite is still some green juice with avocado and chili, the spice always feels like I have eaten a delicious meal!
Be gentle, be kind.
Happy New Year.
Love, Terces

I'll speak for all of LA and say "hell yeah". We welcome your boys with open arms :)

I am sooo excited that you are coming down here to Southern Cal!!!! Welcome!!! I'm somewhat far from LA, but I will make my way there, if only to eat at the new Cafe Gratitude! If it was closer, I'd apply to work there ;)

Thanks for sharing about your eating some solid food. I found myself eating a few dried persimmons with some raw pecans last night. But it helped make me feel more stable emotionally and physically. I'm back to liquids only today. Thanks for the welcome and advice ;)

I was contemplating the validity of adding some of my homemade whole-grain sourdough to a smoothie yesterday... ack!!!

And today, I made the I am Bold and could only think about how chips would be perfect with it... NEXT WEEK!

Terces, What do you think of Teechino as a coffee substitute?

I love the creativity in smoothie recipes you suggest! I think Teechino is ok, we also have and sell Gano (it is a rishi mushroom and coffee beverage)... I am not a real coffee drinker for me it is more social than anything, so I would say see how you feel with and without it!
So grateful for your sharing. Keep it up. Love. T
