Click HERE to go to the Liquid Lounge for rawsome Green Smoothie recipes!
My basic Green Smoothie recipe is:
(for the Vitamix pitcher size)
3 Romaine hearts or 1-2 regular heads
1/2 package of spinach (I rotate dark leafy greens, swiss chard, collards,etc.)
1 cup water (just enough to cover the blades)
I make it thick. I store it thick and when I drink it, I add 1/2 water and 1/2 GS. This may be too much GREENS for you at first. Let me know what you decide!
Let's Toast to Health! Clink your glass to mine!! : )
Three years ago, Labor Day Weekend, I felt like I was having a stroke/heart attack. I was hospitalized. I started out with blood pressure of 220/120!
When I got out of the hospital, I didn't take the prescribed meds. I changed to a Raw Food Lifestyle. I was a tight size 16, now I am a size 8! No more health issues either!
The Raw Foods Lifestyle changed my life! I will never again compromise my health and well-being by going back to SAD. Raw does my body good! : )
Come on in... Check yourself in...be refreshed and relax...

When I woke up today, what I was thinking about is how rewarding this day is going to be...I will have high energy because I will be putting only high octane (raw food) into this marvelous machine I call my body! There will be no knocks or pings! I will have great mental clarity so the stresses of the day will roll off my back and not even disturb me! I am building a fresh new body every day. Every cell is getting the nutrition that it has craved! My body thanks me!
I will live this day to the fullest and every second will be rewarding!
When I lay my head to the pillow tonight, I will reflect on all the special things that have taken place and rejoice!
I am "main-lining nutrition" !

Our deepest dear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. ~Marianne Williamson
Take a power nap in the hammock...
Walk the labyrinth and get your focus....
There will always be something to be dissatisfied with in life. You can either spend your life thinking about these unsatisfactory things, or you can be functional. The choice is yours. Focus not on what you don't, but on what you do want. In Joy! Jinjee
Or sit by the water and be refreshed....
GET YOUR VISION!
Life is goooood here! : )
RAW GIVES ME WINGS...I WEAR THEM EVERYDAY!
I fly above any temptations....they can't touch me!

Encouragement: It's oxygen for my soul! I don't wait for others to encourage me -- I encourage myself! I don't look at where I am -- I look ahead to where I am going! The pathway of hope is faith and that comes by hearing Good Words! So, I talk to myself -- I encourage myself! I rely on God knowing He's always near and ready with the answer! I keep His Words close to my heart and don't flinch at trouble! Tough times don't last, but tough people always do. So, I paint pictures in my mind of coming victories. When I feel like the pressure is trying to mount, I focus on the Lord. I take a deep breath of His Word and exhale true encouragement! --Jesse Duplantis

My precious special needs son Elliott is my Little RAWK STAR!

You guessed it....He is powered by Green Smoothies! : )
The Art of Pamperin'is what I plan on perfecting over the next 11 weeks! : ) I don't think I will recognize myself..... : ) I started this type of thinking just a month ago when I purchased a fridge magnet that says: Don't Treat Me Any Different Than You Treat The Queen! I bought it to remind myself to do things for me. I will hold in my mind the mental picture of my home as a Health Spa. By growing my own Wheatgrass, Sunflower Sprouts in my indoor garden and GREENS in my outdoor garden and by making the atmosphere spa-like in every other way...I will be transformed!
I have been busy pamperin' myself and my kids! We recently went on a shopping spree for new clothes for my son's upcoming wedding! It was soo fun! Gotta do MORE of this! : )
