Preparing for a new approach to a daily diet regimen always gets me thinking about juicing.

A juice fast has been proposed by many as a compromise between a more difficult fast, such as the Master Cleanse, or a straight water fast.

Sometimes I wonder whether a full-time juice fast, or juice diet, would be a way to go. As with a live-food diet, you could meet your needs and still have a vast range of flavors to choose from. Meanwhile, nutrients would be mainlined into your blood stream without the need for heavy digestion.

Steve Pavilina has just completed what he called his “Juice Feast”. I like that term. It turns on its head any bad connotations of the word “fast”. Juicing is really quite enjoyable.

So here we are today, and I am so excited about different flavours of juice.

I am going to start with carrot, tomato and orange. This evening, I will try some veggies.

Of course, you can also make the soup, as directed in the book.
