Who says eating healthy is boring? I never really ever believed that myself but I was never keen on drinking liquified grass. In fact I've seen other people do it but for me it was just not going to happen.
What I didn't realize is just how awesome it tasted (not grass, but the usual green suspects, like kale, broccoli, celery, etc, etc) when you juice in one nice tasting fruit into the mix. Take the drink on the last, for example. Mostly sweet potato, carrots, and celery, but I mixed in a quarter of a pineapple and a thin slice of ginger. Oh yeah, now we're talking! What a nice drink! If you want to give it a little more substance then drop in a tsp of chia, or protein powder. That will not only fill you but it will energize you all morning long.
The green dink in the back is a nice mix of only green vegetables with another slice of pineapple just to make it not yucky, you see? Perfect.
You have to pack them into sealed glass containers so the juice doesn't loose it's precious goodness through the day. Some say it's good for a couple of days but I like to make a fresh mix daily. Don't want to waste any of this potent life saver.
I for one suggest that juicing is not for everyone. No, but if you are like me and are desperate and determined to change your body…go for it. Consult your doctor if you have any underlying health issues for certain, but if you can begin safely, you won't regret this.

Friend or foe of my body
To many of you this bottle of green juice looks like a simple yucky nasty green drink. I would have thought so too just four months ago. But as of a month ago this yucky bottle of green juice packed with broccoli, spinach, kale, one apple, four strawberries and a half lemon has become the military grade attack on everything that is already nasty and yucky inside this body of mine.
I cannot say enough about how offensive the ingredients of bread, butter, cereal, burgers, fries, potatoes and the like are to my body and yours. I don't wish to expand on that here, but suffice to say that my body has undergone a dramatic change since I cut all that junk out and adopted a green/veggie/nuts/fruits intake. My skin is so much clearer. My weight has been dropping at a rate of about a pound a day and the best part is my energy level. Since the three days of caffein cleanse I have been liberated from it and now I thrive on the simple but powerful naturally occurring energy that my body gets from the whole foods I now consume.
I've said it before, here again: I'm not in this to loose weight. It's not a diet. There is not a diet known to man that doesn't deprive and make you just want more of what you are trying to get away from. I'm not on a diet. I'm on a journey to change.
I was one bacon and eggs meal away from a heart attack when I decided it had to change. Thank God it did.

The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
