After seeing the Green Lemonade recipe I shared in my last post, my friend, Jackie, asked me to share more juice ideas with her. I thought others might like that too, so I thought I would tell you what I had for breakfast this morning. Yummy and rejuvenating!
Drink this at least a half hour before leaving home. Because, after all, Natalia Rose in her book, Raw Food Life Force Energy, calls it the Great Eliminator!
I’ve enjoyed some of the recipes in this book, and I do believe raw living foods are good for the body. A couple of years ago I ate a 90% raw food diet for about 8 months and felt great. I no longer eat, high raw, but I do try to include raw food, in some form, in my diet everyday.
As I was preparing my veggies to juice today, I was thinking about how sad it is that we can spend hours pouring over diet books and healthy recipes and working out, but give the average of 10 minutes, or less, a day to taking care of our spiritual condition. The fact is, that even though it is honorable to spend thought and effort to maintaining my body, my body–your body–is continually wasting away. We go to great lengths to defy aging, but the truth is, we will ALL eventually undergo physical death!
Every time I juice, I am reminded that it is even more essential to spend time feeding my spirit through exposing myself to God’s Word….and not just reading, but listening and meditating continually on small portions of it until it infuses my soul. That is TRUE life force energy. And think of it…..it’s a diet that allows me to eat all day long!
I wonder what would happen if the media began to address our eternal destiny and the urgent need to feed our souls with Truth in order to enter into REAL LIFE instead of constantly bombarding us with ads, commercials, and infomercials centered around ways to hang on to and shore up these sagging, earthly, decaying vessels.
I believe, modern day marketing has become a crippling distraction that is sucking LIFE 1 out of us.
Lord, please help us find the balance between heaven and earth.
Linking up today with Jen and Soli Deo Gloria friends over at Finding Heaven.
