i really should be doing homework for my five classes tomorrow, but i've been juice fasting and so many people have been asking me about it that i thought it should be blogged. It all started when i read Fast Food Nation years ago, then i saw Super Size Me, and then Knive
s Over Forks, and finally Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. So basically for years, i've been disgusted by fast foods and other processed goods, but i didn't have the education to eat any healthier and the worst part of it was that i kind of thought that i was being healthy for the most part. my sister tried the Reboot Your Life fast from the Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead documentary and it started a chain. next was my mom, followed by me and oscar. day one was super easy for me because i was so ready to give up my unhealthy habits. day two was also surprisingly easy, until the evening hit and i was home from school. i got through classes from 8am to 5pm perfectly, but on the way to see Beauty and the Beast 3d, my gps wouldn't cooperate and i had a little bit of a melt down in the car. then when we got home i immediately fell asleep on the couch. today is day three and it's going so much better! i don't think we'll do the full 7 days that we had planned on, probably just 4 or 5, but afterwards we plan on juicing and having fruit and veggies throughout the day and then having a super healthy meal for dinner. i usually have terrible stomach and headaches, and my headaches slowly seem to be going away; my stomach hasn't been hurting at all the past three days and i don't feel bloated at all. oscar's skin is clearing up a lot, too. so many benefits from a healthy lifestyle!! we've been needing a boost in our lives and something to kick start a new, healthier and happier lifestyle, and i think the Reboot has done it! :)

pictures: (one) day one dinner of veggie soup, (two) day two breakfast juice of kale, carrot, green apple, golden delicious apple, and grapefruit, (three) day two dinner of kale, cilantro, orange, cucumber, and green apple, (four) day three dinner juice of bell pepper, carrot, tomato, kale, apple, and celery with a side of slightly overcooked kale chips, which were still delicious, (five) showing off my dinner, (six) just a photo i snapped today of my precious(giant)cat

recipe for kale chips:
Wash kale and cut stems out, then tear or cut into bite-sized pieces
Arrange on a cookie sheet (i put foil on it to keep it clean) and drizzle with about 1 Tbsp of olive oil and sea salt to taste
Bake in oven at 350 for under ten minutes (mine were overcooked at 10)
