Day SEVEN February

Hi everyone,
I wish the week wasn't over in so many ways and I am happy to be getting ready for our trip to Los Angeles to see our sons and also the community that is gathering there. We are heading down south for three days to meet the new employees of Cafe Gratitude LA and to begin training them in our model of business. The reason I juiced a week early was to ease the challenge of juicing while traveling and staying at someone's house.
I am grateful for the Chlorella tablets I have been taking and will take with me while I travel as well.
I am also grateful that my community eats healthy food so the breaking of my juice week will go smoothly. Remember to take it easy, keep juicing and start adding in salads, steamed veggies and light meals. I always make the biggest meal of the day midday and have a really light evening meal or only liquids at night.
How do you break your cleanse?
Be sure to continue to treat yourself well, make healthy choices and remind yourself that you are beautiful inside and out!

Day SIX February

Hi Everyone,

So happy for the opportunity to simplify my life, JUICING does that for me.
I even find myself wanting to go back to juicing after only a day or so after the week is over, I am already missing the simplicity I experience.
So, that said,
What are you noticing? How does juicing support you in your life?
I am enjoying the time I have with my grandchildren on the farm, we are all learning so much together. Children are precious for sure.
This month I have really enjoyed Grapefruit juice and I make up that is because it is in season and better than ever. We also have an orange tree on the farm and fresh orange juice is so delicious.
Mostly what makes this week so special each month is YOU. Knowing I am not alone, knowing there are others out there going through the same experience... keeps me going.
Remember to exercise as well and be sure to LAUGH too, it is so good for you.
Love. Terces

Day Five February

Good Morning,

Well today I simply did not set myself up well and found myself dealing with hunger. Thankfully Marta brought me a coconut for the lunch break at a workshop we were leading. I also had some strawberries and a few olives and sprouts... tasted so good and really did ease my irritability from the hunger. I can see that it is difficult for me to speak up sometimes and ask for what I really need, good lesson to take on. I always find myself being so willing to be flexible, which I appreciate too. It is always a paradox!
I really watched my mind today, part of the power of the workshop. I was able to see how my ego will create dissatisfaction no matter what I choose. So I can use that awarness as a wake up call and practice shifting my attention to some thought that empowers me. Great lesson.
What are you learning?
I so appreciate you all.
Love. Terces

Day FOUR February


Today I noticed I was cold all day, just couldn't seem to get warm. Had some hot veggie broth soup and it helped but still I felt "chilled". Thank goodness for hot tubbies at the end of the day.
What are you experiencing?
I am still so grateful for the practice of juicing/cleansing each month. It is now a regular practice of mine and I look forward to it.
Today I am practicing keeping my attention on all I have to be grateful for. What are you grateful for?
I still love and look forward to the green juice with avocado and green salsa blended in, it is so filling and due to the spice feels so satisfying.
I also love hot tea, to really sip and enjoy a cup in the mid afternoon around the fire.
I love the clarity of such a simple diet.
I am grateful for you.
Love. Terces

Day THREE February

Good Morning,

I am experiencing some hunger, and am increasing my juices. I am still taking Chlorella and E3Live. I am experiencing the peacefulness and calmness of juicing, however notice that I get irritated with other people who are irritated. I would say I am more interested in peace. What are you noticing?
Today I am taking on kindness, being kind to others and myself. what would being kind look like to you?
For me, it is reading, finishing my first loaf of sour dough bread that I have been growing my own starter for for a month now, doing yoga, gardening, listening to my deepest inner voice...
Thank you for taking on your health with me.
I love you,

Day TWO February

Good Morning,

I can't believe a year has passed already since we first opened Gracias Madre. We had the anniversary celebration and were awarded Best Restaurant of the Year from Veg News Magazine. Congratulations everyone! What I noticed was since I was juicing I was able to be more present with both my granddaughter, who didn't want to leave my side, and all the people who wanted to say hi and share something with me. I found my thoughts silently saying, "wow look how present I am" or some version of that and noticing that it was the result of JUICING. I love that there are less distractions in my life when I juice for the week.
I also noticed that the food wasn't distracting me, I wasn't hungry and yet could completely appreciate that it was there, looked amazing and many people were enjoying it.
The music was incredible too.
On our ride back to the farm I wasn't as tired as I usually am (late in the evening after a full day on the farm), and I could tell that this being the beginning of the week I was still detoxing.
So, lots of water today and I am actually planning my juices ahead of time....
Love to you all.

Day ONE February

Welcome to Day One, while I juiced a week earlier I want to be here to support you this week, so keep an eye on this blog for more of my experience, story and motivation.
While I have been doing this for over 17 months now it is still a "new" experience each month. I look forward to it and still resist sometimes too. Remember to drink plenty of juice and as you go through your week perhaps start drinking more and more alkaline juices, but start wherever you are. It is in the starting that it all happens.
Be forgiving if you fall off and get back up and on the JUICE once again.
Remember hot lemon water in the morning, that really helps me skip coffee or tea!
Also fresh water and plenty of it is important.
I am traveling this week and always travel with some sort of dried or capsuled green food.... fresh juice is not always available so plan ahead if you are away from home.
I would love to hear from you, so share here with us all. Your experience does make a difference for others.
Thank you for taking on your health, I am so grateful for feeling better than ever before.
Love you all.
