Salute!



Although I am not one of those that heard the siren call of The Global Juice Feast, I want to give credit to all of you that have decided to embark on this epic adventure. 92 days without solid food... WOW! Nope. I'm not feeling it!

But even though I will not be joining you, I did make myself a juice to honor you! In all honesty, I made it several weeks ago, but held the picture to post for you today! I can't remember everything that was in it, but I do know it contained two small apples, three carrots, two large beets, some cilantro, a small bit of fresh ginger and a plum tomato or two.

After I made my juice, I was left with all of this pulp from both my drink and Bob's. Now, I am one of those people that don't like to juice because I feel like I'm throwing away good food. So I took a tip from Oscar over at Freshtopia and mixed all the pulp with some soaked flax seeds and made crackers!!! Yum!!! Now I realize that those of you that are feasting could not eat the crackers, but if you have family members that are still eating solid food, you might want to make some for them. And, of course, you can always feed the pulp to your compost pile if you are lucky enough to live somewhere that will allow that.

So GOOD LUCK!!! Take lots of pictures of your progress, and if you need inspiration... head on over to Terilynn's blog, Inspiration:Life. She just completed day 92... and is still going!!!

I love the color of your juice! Thank you for posting it today, for us, the wacky juice feasters! The rest of my family is still eating and those crackers are a perfect idea. I tried to get my dogs to try the pulp tonight....they wanted nothing to do with it. Anyway...thanks for stopping in to visit and for the SALUTE!

Beautiful juice! :) Connie

Thanks Penni and Connie! There is something magical that happens when that deep ruby beet juice hits the mixture. It is simply wonderful!

Keely, thanks for the wonderful post. I went "post surfing" last night and saw lots of wonderful food out there, but it didn't warm my heart the way yours did.

Thanks for thinking of us!

Keely said...

Aaaaah! You are so sweet, Kathy!

Beautiful pics! Curious, did your beet-infused flax crackers turn out two-toned as well? All of mine are gone now - time to make some more.
Thanks for the link love.

Oh, how I wish they did come out two-toned, Oscar. If I had followed your recipe, and had not used the pulp from Bob's juice (which had lots of carrots in it) also, it might have!!!

(((hugs)))

Hi Keely:
Thanks for the comment. I did a lenghty blog today covering the last three days on a water fast. Bob is on his eighth day of the MC, I think he's about ready to break it. I'm very impressed he stuck it out this long.

You have a very colorful blog, wish I had the know how for that :)

Keely said...

You are so welcome Yvonne. Thanks for the comments about my blog. Actually it is pretty simple. I just chose the black template and the pictures just pop off the page!!!

I'm with you Keely - I salute and support those who are able to juice feast, whether 92 days or 3 days but I'm not at that point yet myself. I do enjoy juicing though, except right now I'm having a smoothie. Mmmm...
