Thankful Through November - The 7th and 8th!

I am thankful for my Vitamix
and my juicer!
It's been about 3 years now since I came to learn about Green Smoothies and adding more living plant foods into our diet. I am so thankful for good books and websites (Green Smoothie Girl, Juice Master, The Juice Lady, etc.) that have educated me along the way. I am thankful that God provided the money to buy the tools that I use every day for healthy living! (And blessed with with the juicer as a gift from my friend!) I'm thankful I live in such a place where organic and fresh produce is so abundant and that many other people are living a whole foods lifestyle! It's encouraging! I am sure I have read 100+ books in the last 3 years on nutrition and I'm so thankful for what I've gleaned and how incorporating the principles into our lives has made a positive change.

Long live the Green Smoothie and Green Lemonade and Turbo Juicing everywhere!

The bottom line is this, I am SO THANKFUL for good health - that's what these products help make possible. I don't know that you can fully appreciate your good health, until you have had bad! I have suffered with gluten and dairy allergies, adrenal fatigue and severe back, neck and migraine issues that all stemmed from - believe it or not - reactions to food! Cutting out certain items (sugar, dairy, gluten, food additives like MSG, BHA, colorings, preservatives, soda, caffeine) and adding in other items (whole foods, organic fruits and veggies, lean organic meats, whole grains, pure water) made all the difference.

God has given us the foods we need to thrive! I continually try to do my part to honor this body and care for it with nourishing foods. Does this mean I never eat candy or ice cream? Oh no, I fall off the wagon at times, but I'm finding it is just so NOT WORTH IT for the price I pay in how I feel. So I will keep on keeping on, asking God for his providential care and blessings to do the best I can. And to share these important truths with anyone else who will listen!

Now I gotta go drink my Green Lemonade! A wonderful alkaline drink that helps the body maintain a better balance (we don't want an acidic body - it is a breeding ground for diseases of all kinds!)

  1. I cannot count the number of times I've watched the Jack Lalane juicer infomercial they play in the middle of the night. It really makes me want one.. and reading this post is only making me want one more!

  2. I am so intrigued by the green drink!! Does it taste good?

  3. Tricia!! Yes! The lemon overpowers the greens and it's so refreshing! I was really surprised! Natalia Rose (of Raw Detox Diet fame) recommends drinking it first thing in the morning.

  4. Hear! Hear! To good health! I feel so blessed all the time...

  5. I've never made a green smoothie but I LOVE my Vitamix too. Best blender ever!

  6. I'm sooo very jealous of your vita mix. I make a smoothie everyday with the worst blender ever made.
