Day 16 - Happy Mother's Day!

May 11, 2008

Here I am, making my Mother's Day juice: strawberries, apples, and lots of mint and lemon balm from the garden - it was really good!



Happy Mother's Day, everyone! Cheers!



For Mother's Day this year, I got myself ANASTASIA, the Complete 9 Book Set, By Vladimir Megre - yes, the WHOLE set. I've already read the first one, and it was really great.

My juices:

  • Leftover apple juice from yesterday
  • 1 qt: Mother's Day juice: strawberries, apples, bunch lemon balm and mints with water and chlorophyll
  • leftover savory juices from yesterday (about 3/4 quart) with hemp oil
  • coconut oil, spirulina and honey
  • 1/4 avo with lemon and salt
  • shared the water of a young coconut with Ella
  • made 2 qts: corn, tomato, cuke, carrot, celery, lemon, lime, cilantro, sprouts, spinach, green apple, onion, yellow pepper, garlic, ginger - drank a quart so far
  • also made a quart of watermelon juice

Yesterday I cleaned out my freezer and found old spirulina tablets, so I am finishing those.

Today I am cleaning out our spice and herb cabinet...it is overwhelming. So many little plastic baggies from the coop -- some so old the writing is gone. I put my newly bought dry herbs: raspberry leaves, nettle, and hawthorn berry, into jars. I've organized the seaweed. Washed the cabinets...it looks great in there...but I still have about 50 little baggies that are in limbo (I've thrown out a bunch) - maybe I have enough little jars to store some, I'll have to see.

Happy Mother's Day, Melissa! Those are some fantastic pictures!!

The juice sounds awesome. You are looking so great, too! How are you feeling? How's Dave doing now that his cleanse is completed?

Ooh! I want to borrow the books, one at a time, after the retreat is finished! I've been so curious about them.

Lots and lots of love to you,

Wendi

Dear Melissa,
I love your juice journal! I found your website after reading about the Birch Center in the Cooperator. I suscribed to your newsletter and blog - and now I look forward to your entries on juicing each day! I don't think you need to wait to post pics monthly -there is a difference! To me I see a big difference and I think when you look back at these later on you will see it more. Take care and thanks for sharing your journey. Michelle
