Green Smoothies & Other Stuff..

Sine I lasted posted I have completed the green smoothie challenge. Sorry I didn't post as promised. I challenged myself to a month of green smoothies. I thought it would be only green smoothies, but it wasn't. I decided to eat very little solid food and only vegetables, beans, fruits, and nuts (I drank as many green smoothies to feel full and satisfied). I learned during this process that I am not vegan in the sense that I will not wear the leather items that I already own - shoes and bags. I haven't bought any new leather and don't plan to either, but I cannot afford to replace what I already own. I do not own leather coats or clothing or belts. I feel good about this decision.

The only animal product I missed eating during this time was butter. I only eat butter on bread and I'm not eating bread so I can live without the butter. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention I dropped a few pounds - 17lbs to be exact without feeling hungry or deprived. If anyone is interested the Global Juice Feast began on March 7th and goes for 92 days. You are free to modify this juice feast to fit your life and needs. I haven't decided if I'm going to participate.

Now for the other stuff. When I first started this blog I wanted to talk about healing through nutrition and other natural means. I still plan to do that, but I'll also discuss what's going on with me in general from time to time. I want this to be a place I come to celebrate, to rant, to get support, to talk, to just be - sometimes with no agenda. For those who care I promise to not stay away so long. Next post I'll share some of the things I've been doing while I was away. Until then...

The green smoothies sound yummy!

I agree with using what you have for leather, until it can't be used anymore and then gradually replace as you can.

I found really beautiful vegan shoes @ so that's where I'll be going, to phase out leather.

One more site that I forgot to mention, that I LOVE, is

Not only do they have great looking vegan shoes for the WHOLE family, they also carry a really nice selection of vegan handbags AND accessories!

It really doesn't get much easier than that!
