Whoa, Pure Jeevan's Back?!

2016 update: Aha, you noticed?! Welcome. Yes, we wanted to bring the site back online again, mainly because it's so packed with articles and information. It will be a work in progress for some time, as we changed web platforms and all sorts of tech stuff. So, a lot of links are hard-coded to old Wordpress-style links... just awful. But, in time we'll get all of it back in shape. For now, enjoy clicking around and reading!

April 12, 2008

Today we are doing some Spring cleaning and getting rid of stuff that has been collecting that we don t really need or use. I just finished the bananas (eight of them) and later I ll start eating the oranges that we have. I have plenty of oranges to get me through the day and into tomorrow until we go shopping. I m hopeful that there will be cantaloupes at the food co-op tomorrow. It would be fun to have a cantaloupe day!

How many days do I have left? I guess three? Overall, it hasn t really been all that difficult.

5:10pm

Today I am feeling true hunger! I ate eight bananas this morning and then six small oranges around lunch time. Now I am very hungry and will eat more oranges. I have to continue with the oranges in the morning, too, since I have to grocery shop tomorrow.

7:00pm

I ate four oranges, and I have to say that even though I was feeling hungry I wasn t really into eating them. They weren t overly sweet and they didn t feel all that great in my belly. Now I m wondering if I m feeling hunger or something else. I m wondering that because I see all kinds of other foods I d like to eat the bread my daughter is eating right now, the pasta she ate earlier, and I would really love to eat some cooked (and even fried! EEK!) Indian food. I really think the cravings are much worse doing this mono meal eating than they ve been over the past year and a half, or so, since I ve been 100% raw.

I do think that I m not done detoxing and that I m not even close to what is ahead of me. There are things that make me think this first, I know I have a lot of stored emotional stuff that needs to be released, still. Next, my ears have never completely cleared up like they did the one time I was doing the master cleanse for a few weeks. Also, my skin isn t perfect. Sure, it looks fantastic and people tell me that my skin is incredible, but I know it s not as good as it could be. I still get blotchy, especially on my nose and areas of my cheeks, and most days I have some small bumps under my skin (they seem to come and go). I m not complaining, however. I feel and look so much better than I did when I was consuming cooked foods! Even if I never get to the level of being completely detoxed and filled with unbelievable health, I am still so much healthier than I ever was in the past.

Total Expense for bananas consumed: $10.81

Total Expense for oranges consumed: about $4.00
