I know it's been awhile again, I'm still chuggin along on this here juice fast, today is day 26!! I'm feeling wonderful and feel like I've hit a new level of greatness in the last couple week! I was kinda shooting for 21 days, but I feel so good I'm just gonna keep going! Last week I started up yoga again full time (hopefully 3-4x/wk), bought a massage for myself, have an accupuncture session (which i won!) that I hope to use soon, and I'm still in love with the beautiful nourishing juice concoctions I'm guzzling down daily. I am feeling alive people. :)
So, today I decided, since I'm feeling so good and all, to do a lil bit o' horn tootin :) Yes, my own horn, which I dont do too often. There's been some fun new mentionings of Flourish and moi out in the veggie/vegan world, so I thought I'd share! AND I'm so excited to see I now have 24 wonderful followers on here, that just blew my mind today! It was only a couple months ago I really decided to stick to this and I think I only had 4 for the longest time. It's thanks to those new mentionings along the way that you have all arrived! So here we go.....
1) Earth Balance- my biggest vegan love- has featured two of my recipes on their blog in the last week! One of which (kale salad) won for St. Patty's Day! That link is HERE.
2)Earth Balance- (why are you so good to me!?) Featured another of my recipes! Which by the way, I highly recommend! They're so tasty for spring with all these wonderful veggies to pick from at the farmers markets these days! That recipe is HERE.
3) Suzie's Farm- Words can't say how much room I have in my heart for this peach of a farm. If a farm could fit in my pocket, I'd carry them around with me, they're so dear to me heart. They decided to do a feature on lil ol' me last week! Just a short Q&A on why I love them so much and what I do with all the lovelies I purchase from their stands every week. If you'd like to read it, it's HERE. If you are in the San Diego area, please support this amazing farm, just take a look at their CSA, need I say more!? Thank you :)
In other exciting news, speaking of Earth Balance, there is another AMAZING contest coming up! You all know by now how much I love me a good contest! Similar to their holiday round of 4 different categories with 8 winners, this time it's Appetizers, Side dish, Entrée, and Dessert. I, of course, am planning on entering all 4. :) Hello, chance to win a trip to NYC and eat at Candle Café and have your recipe featured on the menu??? Say no more. I'm already scheming away! This lady would LOVE to go back to Manhattan, I've not been since graduating cooking school over 10 years ago!
My dear mother also tipped me off to another contest Vegetarian Times has got going on now too. So prepare to be flooded with lots of recipes in the near future dear readers! I'm planning on having a contest of my own in the next couple months. We'll see if I can drum up some more fans before I put it out there. The prize will be some sort of delicious baked goody, which I have yet to determine. :)
For now, I will leave you with a recipe of my favorite cleansing juice cocktail of the moment! It's a super delicious morning cocktail of pineapple, apple, orange and fresh ginger root. I've done many variations on this recipe and have added kale, cilantro, and grapefruit. That's the beauty of juicing, there's so many options and no rules as to what goes with what. Just play with your juices and see what you like best!
Pineapple Ginger Sunrise
Fresh Ginger root (however much you can handle- i use 2-3")
Cheers to your health!
