Happy first day of fall, Veggies!!! How will you celebrate the new season??? I will be welcoming fall by drinking some beet juice, attempting to make butternut squash and watching this movie:
I will not, however, be donning any flannels or knee-high boots (like these…sigh) since it is still an impressive 80 degrees in LA. Silly LA. Anyway, the debate in my brain about doing a fall detox rages on. These inspiring (and hilarious) responses to Wednesday's post may wind up being the deciding factor.
"Hey Jen Jen! Thanks for the mention in your blog! I made it 20 days with only juicing. My cholesterol dropped 160 points and my blood sugar 5 points and I'm down 21 pounds and still counting. I actually crave the juice now. I dare say that the thought of pizza makes me sick (please god forgive give me)."
Cara posted on Facebook:
"I just bought a juicer, so I am very excited about integrating that into how I eat. It makes eating so much easier on the days when nothing sounds good and I don't feel like chewing. (Yes, I have a number of those days.)"
And my brother, Sean, texted me the following:
"I'm quitting dairy for a week. I better sh*t rainbows."
What do you think? Fall detox or (vegan) apple pie with mulled cider? Hmmm...maybe both. I'm giving myself until Monday to figure out the "Hows" and "Whys" but until then….
I want to hear from you, Veggies!!! I am taking requests. What do you want to talk about??? Right now in the request queue are pleas for a thorough gluten explanation and more recipes with lentils. Email me, tweet me, post on the Happy Healthy Belly Facebook page. Anything you want to see a post about…let me know!!!
