|Our niece, Kelly Grace, just turned 1!|
Day 15.……Well, we are back. We went to Tampa for a couple of days and I haven’t had a chance to post! My friend, Kerry, and I are nearing the end of our 21 days of juicing. Kerry has done great and has been able to stay the course. Our schedule has been a little crazy, so we have had some food – primarily when we went to Tampa for my niece’s 1st birthday! Sunday will be Day 21 and another round of juicing completed at the Tidwell household. I will be anxious to see how much weight I have lost by then!
Remember, if you have juiced for several days you need to “break” your juice fast. After watching the movie, Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, we have used a lot of the suggestions and ideas from the forum that was created as a result (www.jointhereboot.com). They have some great suggestions on how to break your fast – take a look: http://www.jointhereboot.com/after-the-reboot-next-steps-for-transitioning-to-a-healthy-plant-based-diet/
We did have an unexpected surprise Friday night. We ate supper at Ruby Tuesday’s and they have a whole gluten free menu. That was exciting….BUT…it gets better. On the menu they had roasted spaghetti squash with a veggie marinara sauce! Have you ever tried spaghetti squash? It’s a great substitute for pasta! There are several ways you can cook it – microwave, oven, or stove top. I prefer the oven method. Here’s Emeril’s recipe. There are many great recipes using spaghetti squash which is rich in vitamins, minerals AND low calories!!
I can hardly believe the end is in sight! We will continue to juice for breakfast and mid morning break. We will continue looking for and trying healthy recipes. Life style changes take time..we’re on the road. Want to join us?
BTW, I am still trying to get the living room repainted. Who knew finding the “perfect” color could be so hard?!
