Day 16 of 40. My previous extended fast was 14 days, so this is the longest I have ever fasted for!
People seem to either love juice fasting for wellness and mental clarity or they think it's not so great. I obviously think it's amazing and this is my experience. I'm not a medical professional, so please do your own research before embarking on a fast of any kind and listen to your body!
If you have questions, please leave them below.

One of S and K's favorite things to eat is lentils!
They love these BBQ sliders as well as when I make peanut butter lentils over rice. I'll get the recipe for that up soon!
These are super easy to prepare. To make it even simpler, I make them in our rice cooker. You can also use a regular pot on stove top, crock pot or instant pot. It takes about 40 minutes in the rice cooker until the lentils are tender. Your cooking time will obviously vary if you use one of the other methods above.
2tsp better than bouillon
1tsp aminos or tamari
1/2tsp onion powder
1/2tsp sesame oil
1/2tsp smoked paprika
1 clove minced garlic
black pepper to taste
Rinse and drain lentils. Add to the pot with all other ingredients. Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer and cover.
Cook covered until lentils are tender.
We enjoy these on slider buns!
Or as a quick snack with crackers.
They're also great over rice, over kale, in burritos. I haven't tried it yet, but I imagine they would be great on nachos!

Get $10 OFF By Using This Referrel Link!
Y'all know I love talking about menstrual cups and sponges! Well, here's another great product for your moon time, period panties from Thinx!
Learn more about them in the video below!
I've been using the Thinx hip hugger style for 2 cycles now and I truly love them! I can't guarantee that you'll love them, but if you don't, you can also use them for back up while using other period protection. Try them using this link for $10 OFF!
I also love that Thinx is committed to helping women and girls gain access to menstrual products. It's appalling that women around the world don't have spaces where they can speak openly about their bodies and/or have hygiene products for their cycles. Thinx is working to change that through their Foundation.
By using Thinx, you are doing something good for your body, the earth and other women!

I had the opportunity to attend ShiftCon Eco-Wellness Conference this past December as a speaker. I teamed up with the Almond Board of California to talk about The Future of Sustainable Food Production in a Time of Climate Change. It was my first time attending a ShiftCon and I really enjoyed it!
The conference was jammed packed with eco-conscious brands and their product. Here are just a few of my favorites!
My family loves Luna and Larry's coconut bliss! The ingredients are great and it's so delicious!
Coconut Bliss is Dairy-Free. Soy-Free. Gluten-Free. Certified Organic.
We are very familiar with Enjoy Life's chocolate chips! I always keep a bag of their mini baking chips on hand for making goodies. It was nice to see more of their product line at ShiftCon.
Garden of Life
Another one of my families favorites! We use much of the GOL line and are excited to try more!
Garden of Life uses the purest, cleanest, highest quality whole food ingredients possible and we really appreciate that!
I love Natracare and what they are doing to improve women's health. Natracare are also sponsors of our events Healthy Babies and Kids Expo and Goddess Gathering each year. I love spreading the word about their organic and natural feminine care products!
My littles love Navitas Superfood Snacks! They we're excited to see me when I came back from the conference, but they were also super excited to see that I brought Navitas Naturals back with me!
Definitely check out my post on "12 Ways to Use Plant Therapy Essential Oils" I love that Plant Therapy is a family owned company and committed to providing only the highest quality oils.
Thank you ShiftCon for a great time and I'll see you in 2018!
