Day 15 + Living Tree Community Contest Winner!!

I can hardly believe this is day 15 of my 30-day juice fast!!

Last night I slept well again. I jumped up this morning and discovered I was out of lemon! So… no warm lemon water this morning. :-( I grabbed my Amazing Grass shaker cup, added some ice, a scoop of Amazing Grass Green SuperFood powder and some leftover cucumber-apple juice, and also grabbed my bottle of water with organic apple cider vinegar (a tablespoon) and left to run some errands (including picking up some lemons!).

On the way home, I stopped at that Amish produce stand again and bought some more beets (forgot to take a photo of ’em this time–sorry!) and then came home….


After a busy morning, I decided to drink more of my cucumber-apple juice (it’s so refreshing!!!) and added another (yes, a second scoop for today!) of Amazing Grass Green SuperFood powder. I decided to drink my grass outside. :-)


Dinner Concoction


1 apple

1 celery stalk

1 nob ginger

1 handful spinach

1 handful parsley

5 (heirloom) rainbow chard leaves (from my garden)

4 (heirloom) beet leaves (from my garden)

2 small beets (from an Amish produce stand)

Looks Like Sherbet Juice!




I had drank half of that juice when I realized I hadn’t taken a photo of it! I was getting ready to start this blog post so I just snapped a photo at the laptop. :-) It was a beautiful, rich color and the taste was  simply divine!

And a Winner!

It’s awesome to finally be able to find out which lucky reader wins the Living Tree Community contest (a 16 ounce jar of Coconut Mango Persimmon Butter AND an 8 ounce jar of Raw Almond Butter–both organic!!)

I used to select a winner. There was a whopping 164 comments (whoa!) and it generated the #10….

…. which means Jocelyn (from Jocelyn Eats Fresh blog) won!

    • I don’t peel mine. Some people might, but I don’t. My “nob” of ginger is usually about an inch thick, or close to it. If you don’t like spicy flavors, you can use less but I like about an inch. Ginger is so good for you and kicks up the flavor of juices beautifully! :-)

  1. Congrats Jocelyn…. that sounds so delish!

    what could be more FAB FAB FAB than juicing raw live vegs …but to get them out of your GARDEN…. over the top!

    i’ve been on a smoothie kick (since buying a magic bullet this week) but I am really craving a juice. I have a 4 day weekend coming up… I think i’ll fill up then. not enough hours in the day (night) with a baby for EVERYTHING I want to do at night!

    half way there M! Keep it up! You’re inspiring!
    Happy Wednesday

    • It is over the top, Cindy. It makes all the difference!! Most of what I’m juicing is either from my garden, my neighbor’s garden, or an Amish produce stand up the road. The rest I buy from local grocery stores or Wal-Mart and most all of it is organic or natural. So, I’m doing the best I possibly can!! :-)

      Yay for smoothies! I’ve thought of getting that Magic Bullet. Are you lovin’ it?? I’m sure you are! I only have an older blender right now and I need to upgrade. :-)

      Yep, I’m half way there. It’s crazy! But I’ve done 30 days before so I know what to expect. This one has gone exceptionally well, though.

      Glad I inspire you!!
