Ingredients for a cleansing vegetable drink await their fate.

Juicing and Cleansing

I am making small baby steps for clearer skin and a more fine tuned system. 

I have moved the juicing machine from an unused corner of the kitchen to center stage….and that is about the extent of my progress.   I really don’t like the taste of pure vegetable juices but when I have added them into my diet I look and feel much better.  So far this year I have had one vegetable drink—the day I took this picture.  You can see the juicing machine in the background, it is a Breville and it is a great one to buy.  It was about $300 and last year it got a bit of action in the first 6 months of the year.

This post is supposed to encourage me to start using it again.  If you want to look into the benefits of juicing and cleansing you should read Juicing, Fasting, and Detoxing For Life by Cherie Calbom, MS.  There is a wealth of information in her book.

A good cleanse is a great way to start the year–we are already suffering in these long, dark, dreary days of winter so you might as well add a few yucky vegetable drinks into your day.  It really is worth the effort, and of course it is all gluten free!
