I am 48, ready to start a New Beginning!! I have been studying raw food for over 6 years...trying to overcome the battle of this horrible American Lifestyle that has brought me ill health. I am a new grandmother, to my beautiful grandson Ryder. This is why I moved back to Texas from Beautiful Taos, New Mexico. I miss Taos..but family comes first. I am getting ready to go through a divorce so my new life begins with this incredible journey of Juice Feasting...and I want to Thank Angela Stokes, from Rawreform.com she is my inspiration and also Heidi from Raw Food Right NOw!! May we all succeed and bring enlightenment to others as we enlighten ourselves. I also wanted to say I am the mother of two wonderful spirits, my son is 17, my daughter is 27. Namaste'

Actually, I will be starting the feast Sunday afternoon because I will be in Houston Saturday and won't be able to start then. I am excited about it and hopefully we can all support each other thru this adventure.
Looking forward to our chats.
I am sooooooo ready. Ready, set, go. I am a little concerned that the energy levels might be tough at first. I just have to trust those that have done this and follow the plan. While it won't be easy it has been tested. I have decided to hire Angela as a consultant through the "Feast." I have my first appt. with her on the 10th. I am looking forward to that.
I have had a telephone consult with Angela before...I just love her..unfortunately I have stillbeen going back and forth and messing up with my cooked food addictions....but NOW I AM DOING THIS !! My health is at stake seriously....so I have no other options...the first few days will be a challenge..I have juice fasted before...just focus your attention on positive thoughts..try to stay away from anything tempting...like tomorrow I am working on my visionary board and I am also making a visionary journal in my feasting journal....so I can pull it out and look at whenever I need too...and I am with FLOW today.. :) so my energy levels are definitely sluggish...but bring it on Sista....I am ready !!! This is so kewl...ladies after we do this or even maybe after 30 days of doing this...we can get together for a meet somewhere...between Tyler and Houston.... Ok...sweet Juicy feasting dreamzzzzzzzzzz in Love, Truth & Light, Celissa
Hi! How is it going for you? I have my moments with food but I have drank more juice in the last week than I've drank in 6 months. It feels good. I am getting in the swing of things and I am getting more and more juice and just a smidge of food now (no major eating, just bites). It has slowed the detox I am sure but I don't give up easily. Today I am a juice feaster!
Yep its true I've enjoyed another fast. I decided after my initial 92+ days to make this a yearly mind, body spirit resting ritual.Don't know if I will ever go as long or longer but short - mid fasts are definitely now apart of my lifestyle. The benefits are endless and my intentions in the near future is to completely rest and relax during my fast (no phone, work, completely surrounded only by other fasters in nature etc.) It's a great time of healing and a lot of emotions, ideas etc arise…See More
"Hello! Substitutions are great try celery hearts, cucumber and any greens a variety is best. Tomatoes, bell pepper are a nice addition. Coconut water is tasty as a treat minus the meat. Hope this helps"
