Gifts...When we Listen

About 5 or 6 years ago we stepped into the pool of "raw foods" and I am feeling particularly grateful today.

Yesterday I wasn't feeling well...a stomach ache and head ache...neither of which I get often.

The blessing is that as I was on my way home, my body actually spoke to me - loudly - and asked for some specific foods. Almost like it knew what it needed to heal.

The ultra cool thing is, it wasn't a couple of bags of cookies I wanted to curl up with (like it might have been in the past) was a fresh juice.

Specifically a beet, cabbage, cucumber, ginger, apple and cantaloupe juice made with love by my husband.

Soothing, beautiful to look at and nourishing for my body.

That sounds so good! Yup.... love that stuff. I have a VitaMix that lets you blend it all without loosing any of the fiber.
