Monday – summer solstice

It is the 21st June today and the longest day. So that means from now on the nights will be drawing back in and we are on the countdown to colder days again. So far the promise of a glorious summer has failed to materialise and today is the first day in a good week or so that the sun has actually peeped out from behind darkened clouds.

Oh well, ho hum, what can you do…..except make the most of it before it goes away again and before the shops start the rundown to christmas which I’m sure they will soon.

Thankfully the cold damp and grey weather hasn’t seen me waiver from my raw food and I am happily munching down on the peaches and nectarines that are now appearing in the shops. For the moment they have replaced my beloved pineapples in the ‘favourite fruit’ stakes but my strawberries and raspberries in our garden are fast ripening and will be biting at their heels real soon.

The other great thing about warmer weather is that I can indulge in my newest most favourite pastime – yoga afresco. I love doing my yoga practice outside in the sunshine, it is such a peaceful and calming thing to do with the warmth of the sun beating down on me. Pure bliss – as I have said previously I am very easily pleased!!

So, for now I am one very happy bunny, munching on sweet juicy fruit and practicing lots of outdoor yoga. Lets keep our fingers crossed that the good weather continues……

Wednesday – Juice feasting day 10 and sun….

Hey, hey the sun has finally made its way to my part of the world and the next week or so looks set to be full of glorious sunny weather, so I am in my element. I love, love, love the sun and can’t get enough of it so sitting here at the computer is not so good as I would much rather be outside. Warm weather also makes it incredibly easy to be juice feasting or to eat a raw diet. I never crave heavy foods when the sun is out and am quite content to eat lots of fruit and greens and pretty much nothing else when the weather is so good – really do need to move somewhere hotter again and then my life as a raw foodie would be sooooo easy…….

Juices today have/will be:-

Orange, grapefruit, celery and spinach.

Orange, grapefruit and apple.

Orange, grapefruit, cucumber, spinach and wild garlic (4 oranges, 1 red grapefruit, 1/2 cucumber, 2 big handfuls of spinach from the garden, 6 wild garlic leaves) – this was really refreshing with just a hint of garlic. I drunk it whilst we sat and ate luch al fresco. Perfect.

Pineapple, mango and blueberries.

Exercise today has been:-

90 ashtanga yoga class

How I feel today:-

Its getting boring keep saying how great I feel but I really do feel good. Loads of energy, lots of positive vibes and just generally zinning (is that a word???)…….

Thanks for reading, happy juicing………………………
