Brand New Taste Buds

Back before I turned my attention to Raw Foods, I'd occasionally go down to the local Mother's Market and buy a fresh juice drink. Usually this would follow a night (or several nights, maybe even weeks) of overindulgence. I'd indulge in fatty foods--you don't want to know what some of these were--alcohol, coffee, infrequent soda, and other highly processed crap. I always ate my fruits and veggies, whatever I could fit in around the party food.

I'd stride into the market, study the menu board for a few minutes and order the same thing every time: The Detox Shock. You see, this was meant to purge my body of all the toxins I was well aware of taking in. Unless I was feeling particularly polluted, I'd order the smallest size (8 ounces). This I would drink over the course of a couple of hours, taking tiny sips . The taste sort of grew on me, but I never enjoyed it.

Cut to today. I'm ordering the same juice blend of wheat grass, lemon, ginger and apple. But I can't get enough of it. Eating clean, natural, living foods has, for whatever reason, helped me to develop a taste for this refreshing combination. I now order the 32 ounce cup of Detox Shock. Unfortunately, it's $8.50 for that big serving of yummy deliciousness. Looks like it's time to start shopping for a juicer--in the thrift stores!

Just wanted to pop in and say I love reading your blog. I helps me stay motivated on my own path.
Ps. Sometimes Walmart will have juicers for $20
I have seen them in the thrift store though
