Christmas Challenge-Day 4

THE BEST JUICE IN THE WORLD!! I have just made THE best juice EVER!

I used
3 Apples
3 Carrots - large-ish
3 Clementines
1 Beetroot large-ish
I didn't use my Breville juicer, instead I just grabbed my basic juicer which was easier to get to but it explains the froth, but I quite like the froth anyway.
We have been having our new conservatory erected over the weekend but the lad had to leave earlier yesterday, he is coming back tonight. We are going to tile the conservatory floor but I am not sure if we will get that done before Christmas, but if not then January should see it done.

I will get back today with my next raw meal.

82 Days To Christmas and...

My Christmas challenge.
The number or numbers 82 is quite significant to me because I married my husband on the 28th day and in the year 82 and today is 82 days to Christmas so I have decided to start my challenge as of today.

I also want to talk about something I noticed. As you might know I started drinking lemon water in the mornings and I wasn't having my first cup of coffee until the afternoons, sometimes later in the afternoon 3pm and after. During the days of drinking the lemon water I noticed that I was getting pains in my arms, legs, neck and décolleté area's, I also started getting rather bad headaches which didn't seem to go away. After about a week I ran out of lemons and so started having coffee in the morning and throughout the day, I then immediately noticed that the pains and headache ceased pretty much straight away. This morning although I still haven't been to buy more lemons yet I decided to have a juice drink and didn't get my first cup of coffee until the afternoon and once again I am plagued with another headache and a pain in my right arm....something to do with the coffee me thinks and possibly detox, the reduction in caffeine.

Over the last few days I have been eating processed foods and I have been feeling quite down in the dumps and grumpy, but today I am back to raw for my 82 day raw Christmas challenge and by later this afternoon I started to feel SOO much better and happier!!

I prepared a few raw food about 2 days ago.

Kale for kale chips
Almonds for almond milk
More almonds for granola
Sunflower seeds for granola
Alfalfa seeds for sprouts.
