Raw with Sally Jesse Raphael...

PHEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW…today has been a real whirlwind for me…I’m wiped out…
I did my interview with legendary talk show host Sally Jessy Raphael this morning. I really enjoyed the interview and am excited to spread this message of healing with raw foods ever-further. The audio file is now available to listen to HERE: http://www.sallyjr.com/radio.htm (My segment begins at around 59.12 minutes into the show).
This whole show will be up on Sally’s site from midday Jan 9th to midday Jan 10th, then again this weekend (Jan 13-14th) when the show archive goes up. I am currently working on trying to edit my section of the show out to put up on the RawReform website…but technology has not been very cooperative with me today and I have surrendered for now…I hope to have it arranged by tomorrow…
If you listen on past the end of my segment, it seems my story and comments raised a lot of controversy for Sally and her crew, who could not understand where a raw foodist gets protein from…this, as all raw foodists know, is the perennial question we face…I am sorry that they did not seem to resonate with the idea of alternative protein sources than meat/beans/legumes, but am happy nonetheless to have got this message out there…just keeping on spreading those seeds of consciousness ;)

Today I have had:

250ml (1 cup) water
500ml(1 pint) orange juice with hemp oil
2 litres (2 quarts) pineapple/greens/celery
½ tbsp coconut oil
500ml (1 pint) water
250 ml (1 cup) pear/greens/celery/coconut water
300ml (1.5 cups) coconut water w/ green powder
1 tbsp hemp oil with kelp/cayenne
1.5 litres (1.5 quarts) greens/papaya juice

making…about 5.3 litres of liquids today or…1.4 gallons...
It was hard for me to keep on top of juicing today – very full-on day of interactions with people, but I made the gallon threshold and feel fine…just very ready for sleep…also the pineapple/greens combo in the middle of the day felt very harsh to me and I started to get the prickly sensation on my tongue that tells me my body has had enough pineapple for the time being…
I had some interesting talks with David Rain today about juice feasting matters and this was the outcome for me in terms of new info gleaned:

* being liquidarian as a lifestyle, in the long-run, on just juices is not really recommended… ;) a combination of blended drinks/smoothies WITH juices, yes, maybe…but not just juices…the fibre helps to slow the rate at which things move through the body and can help us access different nutrients in the blends. It can also help move things out that may be lodged in the colon still. Also, there is a desirable effect in the body from chewing – pressure points are activated that do not otherwise get triggered and if we don’t use the jaw to chew, we may lose that ability in the long-run/weaken our jaws.
* By this far into feasting, I do not really need to be using cascara sagrada anymore to stimulate peristalsis. It will be good to start a parasite cleanse soon though – around day 60.
* I could be doing coffee enemas once or twice a week at the moment to help stimulate the liver to release…have never done a coffee enema…may try it soon…feel resistance though…

David has also just put up some great videos explaining the basics of Juice Feasting at the new site – www.juicefeasting.com – check them out…

Ok, that’s it for me for today – sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep really needs to happen… ;)
All blessings,

  1. Angela, congrats on your interview. However, I was disappointed in her lack of professionalism. She botched some of the details in the beginning and end. It was like neither of the ladies had done any reading on you or raw food until it was put in front of their faces. Regardless, congrats! Elian www.livefoodcoach.com
