Welcome to my juice bar and raw foods [...]
It’s time for your journey to begin.
This book can change your life by helping you find the healing, vitality-producing power of living foods. You don’t have to become an all-raw foodist. Juicing and green smoothies represent one way to help you reach that goal quickly and easily.
I changed my life years ago when I discovered the healing power of freshly made juice and raw and whole foods. When I turned thirty, I had to quit my job due to chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. I felt as though I had a never-ending flu. Constantly feverish with swollen glands and perennially lethargic, I was also in constant pain.
My body ached as though I’d been bounced around in a washing machine. But not one doctor had an answer as to what I should do to facilitate healing. I decided that everything I’d been doing-like eating fast food, granola for dinner, and not eating vegetables-was tearing down my health rather than healing my body. I read about juicing and whole foods, and it made sense, so I gave it a try. One morning I woke up early-I felt like someone had given me a new body in the night. What a wonderful sense of being alive! I looked and felt completely renewed.
Good health is the result of consuming whole, unprocessed, clean food with a large percentage of that being raw and alive. These foods are chock-full of nutrients, water, and fiber that flush away toxins, waste, and “sludge” from our cells and intercellular fluids. They help us prevent disease. They alkalize our body and help us restore our pH balance. And they give our cells vital light rays of energy to help them communicate more effectively and produce energy more efficiently.
The Juice Lady’s Living Foods Revolution contains a Menu Planner and Guide as well as delicious recipes that will start you on your way to better health.
