 Do you remember the days when dessert had to wait until after you'd eaten your vegetables? The lure of a big scoop of chocolate ice cream was what motivated you to finish your broccoli or gulp down the last bit of spinach? Or perhaps someone would offer you a delicious treat and a well-intentioned parent would shake their head crossly saying it would do nothing but ruin your appetite?

Day 14: Coco-Berry Bliss Juice

Day 14: Coco-Berry Bliss Juice

One of the reasons why I am so passionate about raw vegan living, is because of the tremendously inspiring community that comes with it. This lifestyle seems to attract the most vibrant and beautiful individuals, and I strongly believe that without these individuals, and without this community, I wouldn't be where I am today. 

So I want to send out a huge thank you to each and every one of you. Thank you for being so passionate, thank you for loving food so much(!), thank you for being curious, and courageous, and truly inspirational. 

Oh, and...It's Day 14! We have made it to the end of the 14-Day Juice Cleanse Challenge!

Day 11: Superhero Boost! a.k.a. The Ultimate Liver Cleanse Juice

Day 11: Superhero Boost! a.k.a. The Ultimate Liver Cleanse Juice

Hi everyone! Welcome to Day 11 of the 14-Day Juice Cleanse Challenge. I am happy to say that I have finally hit my stride with this cleanse!

The beginning of the second week was particularly difficult for me to stay motivated. I found that my energy was lower than normal and my general attitude toward cleansing had taken a downward turn. The smell of food at every corner was tempting and there were numerous moments when I found myself silently debating "to stray, or not to stray?"
