March is just flying by, isn't it?
I can't believe how warm it's been. We're not supposed to see 70s and 80s for at least a few more months! Winter isn't even officially over for another five days! But, as perplexing as this weather is, I'm enjoying the chance to break out my shorts and leave my sweaters to themselves. I hope this doesn't mean we'll have a crazy hot summer, though..
Our juice fast is going well. We are one-third of the way through - only 16 days to go! However, we're taking a good hard look at the reasons we're doing this. The point is to cleanse, to bring healing, and to be healthy in general. This time around we've neglected the all-important vegetable juice side of things, in favor of the yummier fruit juices and smoothies. This isn't inherently bad, but it doesn't really fit our reasons for doing this fast in the first place. So! We've decided that we're going to incorporate a small amount of solid vegetables into our daily diets. At least for one week, then we'll go from there. Can you blame us when our alternative is this:
It's not unbearable, but who would choose this over pineapple juice or a strawberry/mango/peach smoothie? Admittedly, we're mostly just ready to eat. So for our own health (mental and physical) we've got a new plan in place. A new plan that includes the addition of simple, raw salads. Yusssssss. That development, and a trip to the Nashville Farmers' Market have me excited again about what we're doing. (You can expect a post about our Farmer's Market experience within the next week!)
How is everyone else's March going? Have you ever had to switch gears in the middle of a project or plan?
