I’m turning over a new LEAF.  Yeah, pun intended. I’m going GREEN.  Last year I went off course. I guess we all do that from time to time.  I stopped exercising.  Stopped eating healthy.  Didn’t meditate as much as I used to.  WOW.  I could sit here and wonder why…or I could just say….today is the only thing that matters.  And so…I’m turning over that new leaf.

I started exercising. Eating healthy. Meditating.  Taking care of me.  Life catches us off guard sometimes and we fall back on unhealthy patterns.   The best I can do is to catch myself, and drag my butt back on course.

So I’ve been juicing veggies every day: Kale. Spinach. Cucumbers. Broccolli. Sprouts. Carrots. Beets. Celery. Wheat germ. Tomatoes.  Yummy!!!

Today I started doing the wheat grass thing.  I bought a juicer especially for that.  One shot in the morning and one shot at night.  Here’s why:

Wheat Grass:

Increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.

Stimulates the thyroid gland, correcting obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints.

Restores alkalinity to the blood. The juice’s abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over-acidity in the blood. It can be used to relieve many internal pains, and has been used successfully to treat peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, constipation, diarrhea, and other complaints of the gastrointestinal tract.

Is a powerful detoxifier, and liver and blood protector. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine. It strengthens our cells, detoxifies the liver and bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants.

Fights tumors and neutralizes toxins. Recent studies show that wheatgrass juice has a powerful ability to fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs that also inhibit cell-destroying agents. The many active compounds found in grass juice cleanse the blood and neutralize and digest toxins in our cells.

So turn over a new leaf with me and here’s a happy and healthy 2012.

With Joy,
