I LOVE food! All food! Well, almost ALL food.
But the older I get the more my food shows up on my hips, my thighs, and unfortunately all that yummy stuff affects my heart and my health.
When I was younger, I could eat what I wanted and then just watch my intake for a few days and lose the weight I had gained.
But those days are LONG GONE and my body is now in need of a little makeover. Okay…so a big makeover.
And it’s not about my weight…it’s about my health.
So, I started juicing.
At first, I decided to try a bit of a body cleanse and juice three times a day. I ate some nuts, but other than that, it was just juice I did that for about 3 weeks and then added some beans to the mix. So then I was juicing twice a day and eating a meal of beans and nuts.
But then Thanksgiving showed up with all that food! The turkey, the mashed potatoes and gravy, the casseroles and the pies! WOW! It was SO good and I was all about the food…especially the mashed potatoes and gravy. (Just sayin’)
And then there was Christmas…and all that food! Especially the chocolate! Yeah…I LOVE chocolate! (How about you?)
