Green Juice - How can it not do me good!?

Fun in the Songhurst household on a Sunday afternoon...

I am done with the self pitying moods for the moment....I thought I would share what I do to make me can't just rely on the NHS or God (well actually you can). You have to take some responsibility for your own wellbeing - why does it take a life threatening illness to make us all feel this way?

Frozen Wheatgrass Supplies!
After months of buying frozen wheatgrass due to the fact I just could not seem to grow the stuff...

Lawn on the window sill
Fran took charge...and here are the results.

Me mowing the lawn...
I will still need to buy frozen wheatgrass as I cannot grow enough to sustain the volume I am taking.

For the moment I am flooding my body with the green stuff as my non-chemical chemotherapy!

Pure goodness
I have 6 fl oz a day, which equates to 6 little pots of frozen wheatgrass. The 3 trays make 2.5 fl ozs and is strong stuff!

The fresh stuff is so potent I am on half rations whilst my body gets used to it.

Just look at that green stuff - just the colour makes me feel better :-)

Mix it up!
I mix the *wheatgrass with half a bag of fresh spinach, 2 apples, a chunk of fresh ginger, a good slice of fresh lemon with 6 teaspoons of barleygrass powder, 6 teaspoons of lecithin and 3 tablespoons of E3 Live (super algae)** and a pint of water...

Nearly there
I split it into 3 juices for the day!

The containers go to work with me or sit in the fridge until I am ready...

All set for the fridge!

Why do I drink it? Because it makes me feel better than I have in years  and it has my 5 a day many times over in the fresh uncooked raw state...

Vegetables au naturale without being boiled, stir fried and no sauces... Tough going to start with for a couple of days but now it is part of my daily routine and Fran even has one a day...

p.s. If you want to actively do something to help me alongside the continual prayer and positive energy I am surrounded by, grow me 3 trays on your window sill...

I have the seeds you will need 6 seed trays and some organic compost
I germinate them and deliver them to you for planting
You put the 3 empty seed trays on top to keep them dark in a dark room for a couple of days
When the top trays are raised you take them off and pop them on newspaper on a sunny window sill
Water daily until they are 6-10 inches high where they will be harvested and juiced
The trays will be watered again until the same tray produces a second crop after which the whole process starts again

It is an amazing process and they actually look quite good on the window sill :-)

Much Love to all
