I'm Back (Again!)

Hello, again! I was just thinking about this blog... and since I've recently renewed my commitment to healthy eating, I thought this would be a great way to track my progress... I'm on day 26 of a 28 day cleanse. This time I am doing a different one than I did back in 2010 which is coincidentally the last time I posted! I will try to post updates more frequently... cheers to good health!

I'm Back!

Hi Everyone, I'm back to blogging. Hope to post updates on a more regular basis. I've been doing a 21 day cleanse. I am on day 8. More info to follow. So far, I'm doing pretty well although it's hard. Hopefully it will be worth it in the end. I already feel better overall and have lost 6 pounds since I started the cleanse. Glad to be back and see you all soon! :o}

The Dreaded Weigh In ~ aka Week One

Good morning, everyone! Well today when I woke up I weighed myself to get my "starting weight". I was surprised because I was 8 pounds less than my all time high which is where I thought I was going to be at or above so that is a good thing. My weight has been recorded but will not be revealed. You'll noticed to the left under my "about me" section, you will find a lovely weight loss ticker that will keep track of my progress. My goal is to update the blog at least once a week to report how my week has gone and to report any changes in my weight. I went to bed early last night and have awoken completely starved so wish me luck with that!!! Enjoy your day everyone!!

Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail

Lesson learned! I had a game plan yesterday of what I'd be eating ~ however, found myself out of the house later than expected and had no appropriate dinner with me!! So my day was not entirely raw... well, my goal is like 85 - 90 % raw... but I am going to try and have my food plan ready in the morning and have my food all ready, too, for the day so I will be ready for those situations!! Even the night before if possible. Another case in point, last Saturday I picked up some wheatgrass, some sunflower sprouts, and seeds for both so if I had planted them last week when I got them, they would be ready now... instead I'll be out of wheatgrass today so that means I will have to head over to Whole Foods and see if they have any to hold me over until my "crop" is ready!! Well, I'm off to make my wheatgrass juice! Enjoy your day, everyone!!

The Power of Wheatgrass :)

What's so great about wheatgrass?

40 Points about Wheatgrass and its Nutritional Values

1 Wheatgrass Juice is one of the best sources of living chlorophyll available.

2 Chlorophyll is the first product of light and, therefore, contains more light energy than any other element.

3 Wheatgrass juice is a crude chlorophyll and can be taken orally and as a colon implant without toxic side effects.

4 Chlorophyll is the basis of all plant life.

5 Wheatgrass is high in oxygen like all green plants that contain chlorophyll. The brain and all body tissues function at an optimal level in a highly-oxygenated environment.

6 Chlorophyll is anti-bacterial and can be used inside and outside the body as a healer.

7 Dr. Bernard Jensen says that it only takes minutes to digest wheatgrass juice and uses up very little body energy.

8 Science has proven that chlorophyll arrests growth and development of unfriendly bacteria.

9 Chlorophyll (wheatgrass) rebuilds the bloodstream. Studies of various animals have shown chlorophyll to be free of any toxic reaction. The red cell count was returned to normal within 4 to 5 days of the administration of chlorophyll, even in those animals which were known to be extremely anemic or low in red cell count.

10 Farmers in the Midwest who have sterile cows and bulls put them on wheatgrass to restore fertility. (The high magnesium content in chlorophyll builds enzymes that restore the sex hormones.)

11 Chlorophyll can be extracted from many plants, but wheatgrass is superior because it has been found to have over 100 elements needed by man. If grown in organic soil, it absorbs 92 of the known 102 minerals from the soil.

12 Wheatgrass has what is called the grass-juice factor, which has been shown to keep herbivorous animals alive indefinitely.

13 Dr. Ann Wigmore and institutes based on her teachings has been helping people get well from chronic disorders for 30 years using wheatgrass.

14 Liquid chlorophyll gets into the tissues, refines them and makes them over.

15 Wheatgrass Juice is a superior detoxification agent compared to carrot juice and other fruits and vegetables. Dr Earp-Thomas, associate of Ann Wigmore, says that 15 pounds of Wheatgrass is the equivalent of 350 pounds of carrot, lettuce, celery, and so forth.

16 Liquid chlorophyll washes drug deposits from the body.

17 Chlorophyll neutralizes toxins in the body.

18 Chlorophyll helps purify the liver.

19 Chlorophyll improves blood sugar problems.

20 In the American Journal of Surgery (1940), Benjamin Gruskin, M.D. recommends chlorophyll for its antiseptic benefits. The article suggests the following clinical uses for chlorophyll: to clear up foul smelling odors, neutralize Strep infections, heal wounds, hasten skin grafting, cure chronic sinusitis, overcome chronic inner-ear inflammation and infection, reduce varicose veins and heal leg ulcers, eliminate impetigo and other scabby eruptions, heal rectal sores, successfully treat inflammation of the uterine cervix, get rid of parasitic vaginal infections, reduce typhoid fever, and cure advanced pyorrhea in many cases.21 Wheatgrass Juice cures acne and even help to remove scars after it has been ingested for seven to eight months. The diet must be improved at the same time.

22 Wheatgrass juice acts as a detergent in the body and is used as a body deodorant.

23 A small amount of wheatgrass juice in the human diet helps prevents tooth decay.

24 Wheatgrass juice held in the mouth for 5 minutes will help eliminate toothaches. It pulls poisons from the gums.

25 Gargle Wheatgrass Juice for a sore throat.

26 Drink Wheatgrass Juice for skin problems such as eczema or psoriasis.

27 Wheatgrass Juice keeps the hair from graying.

28 Pyorrhea of the mouth: lay pulp of wheatgrass soaked in juice on diseased area in mouth or chew wheatgrass, spitting out the pulp.

29 By taking Wheatgrass Juice, one may feel a difference in strength, endurance, health, and spirituality, and experience a sense of well-being.

30 Wheatgrass juice improves the digestion.

31 Wheatgrass juice is high in enzymes.

32 Wheatgrass juice is an excellent skin cleanser and can be absorbed through the skin for nutrition. Pour green juice over your body in a tub of warm water and soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse off with cold water.

33 Wheatgrass implants (enemas) are great for healing and detoxifying the colon walls. The implants also heal and cleanse the internal organs. After an enema, wait 20 minutes, then implant 4 ounces of wheatgrass juice. Retain for 20 minutes.

34 Wheatgrass juice is great for constipation and keeping the bowels open. It is high in magnesium.

35 Dr. Birscher, a research scientist, called chlorophyll "concentrated sun power." He said, "chlorophyll increases the function of the heart, affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus, and the lungs."

36 According to Dr. Birscher, nature uses chlorophyll (wheatgrass) as a body cleanser, rebuilder, and neutralizer of toxins.

37 Wheatgrass juice can dissolve the scars that are formed in the lungs from breathing acid gasses. The effect of carbon monoxide is minimized since chlorophyll increases hemoglobin production.

38 Wheatgrass Juice reduces high blood pressure and enhances the capillaries.

39 Wheatgrass Juice can remove heavy metals from the body.

40 Wheatgrass juice is great for blood disorders of all kinds


Good morning! I am going to start the day off with fresh wheatgrass juice, followed by a green drink made of sunflower sprouts and cucumber (don't have any celery in the house)... lunch will be a soup I made out of spinach, cucumber, scallions and avocados... dinner will likely be a delicious salad with lots of greens and sunflower sprouts (my favorite sprouts)... enjoy your day everyone!
