Announcing the Post-feast Feast :)

Day 81 today…eeeeeeeeeeeeeek…only 11 days left to go…I was so excited to announce a new prize giveaway in the RawReform Newsletter yesterday. It is a ‘Post-Feast FEAST’ giveaway, to celebrate the imminent end of my feasting and the prizes include an amazing range of yummy treats – here’s a re-cap for those of you who didn’t yet see it…

Larawlicious Raw Treats offer a box of their simply divine Goji Goddess Hearts (see pic). These luscious raw sweeties are chewy and cacao-free. (If you want to order some for Valentine’s Day, get your order in quick to have gifted us a selection of their fabulous dehydrated goods, handmade with love. Yummies include apple-ginger bars, savory trail mix and grain-less apple cereal. have donated a mixed selection from their best-selling range of raw chocs and trail mixes - hi-crunch, whoosh, be the change, bullet ride, hi-trail goji and magic mix.
offer up a bundle of each of their outstanding bars – Cacaobars, Sunberry and Vanoffe (my personal favourite raw food treat ;) is offering a mixture of the delicious Raw Crunch bars in Wild Blueberry and Wildcrafted Goji Berry flavours. want to share with you some of each of their award-winning hemp seed raw snack bars – tropical, apple and cinnamon and date/walnut flavours.

It will likely be a long time yet before I personally get back round to eating things like raw snack bars and chocolates – it’s going to be prunes, juicy fruits and salads for me for a good few weeks yet... So, in the meantime, you may soon be the lucky winner of a lush bounty of raw snacks to enjoy on my behalf ;) Each hamper contains at least £15/$30 worth of treats…yummmmmmm… :)

All those who pre-order my upcoming E-Book – ‘A Juice Feaster’s Handbook’ will be entered into the draw to win one of the prizes. This insightful e-book outlines in an easy-to-understand format, the who/what/when/why and how of Juice Feasting, whether you’d like to do it for a weekend or the full 92-Days…

This E-Book will be published around the end of February, when my Juice Feast is over. At that time, all pre-orders will be fulfilled for the e-book and if you are one of those picked, a taster hamper of treats will be winging its way to you too, along with your new book.

To pre-order YOUR copy of ‘A Juice Feaster’s Handbook’ for just $10 and be in with a chance of winning, CLICK HERE.

PLEASE remember to provide your postal address with your order, so that we can get your celebration hamper to you if you are one of the lucky winners picked at random. The winners will be announced in the next newsletter.

Today I have had…

300ml (1.25 cups) water
500ml (1 pint) orange juice with hemp oil
½ tbsp pollen
½ tbsp coconut oil
½ tbsp kelp with cayenne
1.2 litres (1.2 quarts) pineapple/celery/mint
1 packet sugar cane
900ml (3.5 cups) watermelon juice
750ml (3 cups) beet/carrot/parsley/chard/ginger
1 tbsp green powder
400ml (1.5 cups) tangerine juice
500ml (1 pint) water

which makes about…4.7 litres of liquids today or…1.24 gallons

Update: a friend here informed me today that coconut oil IS actually available here in Costa Rica, however, it is unfortunately all heated and processed – nothing raw…so…a definite gap in the market there ;)

Questions, questions…

what to do if organic is out of reach? I live in a country where organic is very expensive, the greens for the juice would be about 10-15$ for 2 pounds. I would love to do a juice feast but financing it is a problem.

Well, what to do indeed…in my opinion it is best to choose organic when we can. However, it’s a tricky conundrum if organics are not easily available or affordable. PERSONALLY, I would choose to not do this if I did not have good access to organic produce. Of course, different people will feel differently about that – only you can make the choices for your own body. My feeling is that greens in particular are so high in water content and vulnerable while growing, that I do not want to bring that amount of potential pesticides into my body that has likely been used on non-organic produce. Here in Costa Rica for example, apparently the laws are lax to the point where the crops can be sprayed up until the day before they are picked…hmmmmmm…no thanks… So, my personal choice would be to not do a juice feast of this length or intensity if I did not have good access to organics. Perhaps a shorter feast WOULD be affordable though…OR prepare yourself for it, by growing your own things in advance, if that’s possible…OR take a trip somewhere else where the organics are cheaper and more abundant and possibly find that you get a holiday and feast all in one for the same amount as juice feasting at home might cost you ;) Hope those ideas helped…

My visa here in Costa Rica runs out this weekend, so I’m about to head out of the country tomorrow for the weekend to Nicaragua, all being well…so…back to juicing and blogging randomly on the road it seems ;)

One love,
Angela. xxx
