My intention was to make the most voted recipe this weekend. But... I ran out of time! Too much to do this weekend :( So... I made the celery, kale and carrot juice with parsley and ginger recipe today!
I plan on making all four of the recipes soon. The juice was great, so I'm interested in how the other recipes are going to come out. But I'm not going to get around to it for a few weeks because I've decided to detox so I can join The Sexy Sugar-Free Vegan Project!
I've been a vegetarian since January 2005. I've been a a Zumba instuctor, teaching up to five 1-hour classes per week. I've not worked out. I've done 30 days of Insanity. I've done the Master Cleanse several times and made a 1/2 attempt at The Crazy Sexy Diet. My weight generally stays within a 5 pound range and some days I'm more toned or bloated than others. The only time my body changes is during the Master Cleanse. When I did the Master Cleanse for 10 days in April I lost 10 pounds and my stomach was almost totally flat! But I eventually gain the weight and bloated feeling back.
With that said, I know that sugar is my enemy. I've know it for awhile. It's what's holding me back from my true weight (which is the weight that I have on my driver's license!). Now, I know these curves aren't going anywhere. I love them! But the excess weight and bloatedness has got to go. So I spent last night reading I Quit Sugar ebook, by Sarah Wilson (it's recommended reading from the The Sexy Sugar-Free Vegan Project ebook).
I'm going follow Sarah's advice and to do an "experiment." Give up sugar for eight weeks. I'm really curious to see that happens to my body! Besides, I have plenty of recipes from The Sexy Sugar-Free Vegan Project ebook to keep my taste buds occupied!
WISH ME LUCK!
I'll leave you with this very special of a little boy's revelation of eating animals.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!
Sorry, Daddy. I no longer eat your famous BBQ ribs.
