So what is a Peace Feast? Well it is basically a juice fast with a twist. The last time I fasted I realized how wonderful and peaceful I felt at the end of my fast. And actually (I am addicted to food shopping) I didn't want to stop by Natural Grocers on my way home everyday. Other areas of my life began to become more in balance while I was fasting. So a Peace Feast is when you only drink freshly made fruit and vegetable juice (I may add in some cocoa powder in the evening or some Stevia for extra sweetness) for, in this instance 10 days. During your juicing you make one pledge to make your life more in balance in another way too, like "I will do 10 minutes of abdominal exercises or yoga every day." Stick to it and see how you feel at the end of the 10 days, I guarantee your life will feel more in balance than when you began!
I am going to start next Sunday. I am writing this now so that you can join me! I will try to post what I will be eating the next day on my Facebook page, I make three juices at night so I can eat them through-out the next day while I teach. I usually make about 4 juices per day. Sometimes I drink all 4 and sometimes I only drink 3, it all depends on how I am feeling that day.
Fasting Tips for Beginners
Some things I have noticed by watching other people try to do a juice fast. When you juice you are letting your body cleanse the toxins that you have been putting into your body through food and other various ways. THIS CAN BE PAINFUL, usually people feel awful about day three. I have seen people have really bad headaches and become lightheaded. You have to get through that horrible, detoxing day and I promise you will begin to feel wonderful, awake, peaceful, and light. So if you are doing this for the first time please make sure you let me know so I can support you and I will start on Friday with you instead of Sunday so you have the weekend to detox and the week to feel amazing!
