So jazzed about juicing! My IIN friends have been uber generous as to their experiences and resource sharing. Let me back up a bit before I share this collective wisdom.
It’s not like I’m new to juicing – I’ve successfully broken 2 already. I started in the 90’s when my first born son was diagnosed with leukemia. (ref1) Without much assistance from anyone at the time (nor the vast World Wide Web), I was on a life-saving mission trekking the globe to find a cure and the cause. (Another post I promise).

In my years since then and in an effort to move on and put the past behind me (& the broken overused juicer), I began juicing again with another machine a friend insisted I have. I made a valiant attempt I think to resurrect any juiciness from scrubbed and washed produce every day until, yes, another one bites the dust.

Yes I missed the many benefits of being juicy and feeling fantastic, but definitely not missing the clean-up. I don’t know about you and everyone’s different, but I enjoy the prep work of cleaning, chopping, slicing and peeling my produce. It’s gritty work, like gardening, that puts me in touch with my food. I light a candle and with much meditative contemplation, I prepare (& pray) along with my new vision of a meal – shooting from the hip and creating as I go.

Yet my choice is now a simple blender – a red Hamilton Beach. A wedding gift probably intended for margaritas rather than mango pineapple juice. Yet it works for me – I love the fact I get every bit of the WHOLE produce rather than just the concentrated version. My family is now on board and asking for those great ‘smoothie’ recipes I used to make them. I’ve given them blenders now as gifts, with juicing recipes rather than a margarita accessories, and it does appear to be working for them.
Perhaps my intentions while working in the kitchen are behind it – or maybe, just maybe, my prayers are being heard after all.
Much Light

Ref1. Try telling the beautiful state of California you choose to use alternative methods to treat the cancer your child was mis-diagnosed by the nice healthcare system for weeks, and you’ll be threatened the loss of your beloved.

Options —
In a world of sometimes too many options, parents with children diagnosed with cancer have none. At least it can feel that way. Trust me I understand – I’ve been there and have helped many like you. Achieve that safety bet you’ve been taught to hold tight for your child and never let go. Your child needs you – you can do this!
Parents, you still have options that will help your child and still stay within protocol.
Until then, look for my next post and spread the light.
