I’m in the midst of a juice fast. I don’t have a juicer, just a Vitamix, so it’s more I’m on an “obliterated fruits and veggies” fast.

Almond Date Breakfast Mylk
1 cup almonds, soaked overnight and drained
1 cup dates, soaked overnight and drained
1 1/2 cups filtered water
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or more water)
2 teaspoons maca powder
Blitz everything in high-speed blender or until evenly combined. Makes about two 16-ounce servings.
Another favourite juice so far is parsnip-pear-apple-ginger-jicama.
2-3 cups filtered water
3 parsnips, peeled
1 cup jicama, peeled and cubed
2 small apples, cored
1 pear, cored
1-inch chunk of ginger, peeled
Blitz everything in high-speed blender until fruit skin disappears. Makes about four 16-ounce servings.
Juice for a day on the first day: two green juices, two carrot-jicama-pear juices, coconut water, almond and cashew nog, kombucha
Hey, look, it’s Edgar Allan Poe’s grave! This Goth grrl has been there, done that.
Rules for wearing a skirt (of any length) while riding a bike:
Soup! Because it’s cold outside. There’s probably 1,001 variations on some vegan, gluten-free, roasted butternut squash curried soup because it is brainlessly easy to prepare. Even a zombie could make it.
Ask a gluten-free person what they miss most and it’s most likely bread and beer. When I brought this bread to my gluten-free friend, with shaking hands I presented it–“It’s…it’s bread.”
