Today was easily my best day yet. I’ve felt a huge emotional release from finally giving up the spirulina habit- no more wondering “should I or shouldn’t I?”. It feels like a real juice feast now. Additionally, amping up the amount of beet juice I’ve been drinking (from occasionally to 4 beets in a juice) has really reminded me what powerful awakeners beets are. I released so much awakened waste today and my body was left feeling so light, I noticed how easy it was to stand up perfectly straight and my constant head chatter seemed to have eased significantly. I’m quite tired after a late shift at work but I feel so much satisfaction when I think back over how today felt.
I’m pretty sure the only way I’ve ever had bok choy in the past was in a greasy stir fry. Yum. This morning I thought I would try something new and throw them in the juicer! If I remain this adventurous, I’ll probably have tried juicing everything in the Whole Foods produce department and have to move on to more exotic stores :) Yay for a big range of nutrients, a variety of tastes, and exploring new stores in Seattle!
Bok choy turned out to be sweeter than I’d realized and not quite as cabbage-y. In addition, it’s high in calcium and a great support in detoxifying the liver! Here is how I had it this morning:
Juicy Bok Choy in a Glass
3-4 bunches of bok choy
