2009 Global Juice Feast!!!

Hello All!

It is about that time again! Spring cleaning time!!

The Second Annual Global Juice Feast is set to begin on Saturday, March 7, 2009, so head on over to and and see what all the fuss is about.

As always with an exciting journey, many just couldn't wait to start and I'm noticing Juice Feasting blogs sprouting up everywhere.

Of note are the resplendent Penni Shelton and Courtney Pool, who are both experienced Juice Feasters we are all lucky to share the journey with. If you are just about to begin your first Feast, you will be in excellent company with these two, so be sure to check in with them.

Both Penni and Courtney are setting out to do short (although 30ish days isn't really all that short is it?) Feasts this spring, which is a great idea for a second Juice Feast.

David and I like to recommend after doing an extended 30 or 60 or 92 Day Juice Feast that shorter cleanses of 10 to 30 days can be done twice a year (spring and fall) It is important to remember that as with anything, it is possible to over do it with Juice Feasting! Please make sure that you are balancing your cleansing periods with long periods of a nutrient-dense, maintenance diet of good, whole foods, exercise, sunshine and LOVE!!!

While David and I will not be Juice Feasting this year, we will be joining you with our daily quart of GVJ (Green Vegetable Juice!) and popping into both The Green Room ('s membership forums) and Global Juice Feast to see how things are going.

I will not be Juice Feasting due to the beautiful baby growing in my belly, and David having done 10 days in January of Juice Feasting is feeling happy to continue eating after a cold, gray, Canadian winter.

If you have a Juice Feasting Blog you would like mentioned here, please let us know! One lovely lady is already off and running on Day 15 of her Juice Feast, head over and say hello to

You may also find it fun to peruse some of the blogs listed at the right. I had a lot of fun blogging during the 2008 Global Juice Feast, and that journey starts

Also be sure to check out our website at where you can learn all about HOW to Juice Feast under the Juice Feasting Intro!

Wondering about signing up for one of our memberships? David and I were honored by this recent comment left by someone in response to a question on about the value of a membership:

"I started my JF membership as the shortest membership term because I wasn't sure about the amount and quality of the information that would be provided. Wow, was I pleasantly surprised. The content is great and is updated fairly regularly. I have recently splurged for the annual membership. Although the downloads can be saved for later viewing (as long as you also save the passwords), it is really nice to be able to follow along and refer back to the JF website as you go... at least for me. In the grand scheme of things, the annual membership is only about the cost of a few weeks of produce for your Juice Feast."

and this one:

"$30 to begin with are well worth it. There is cool info out for everyday, videos etc. stuff to keep your mind on topic in case you feel urges, esp late at night (I have that prob!). You definitely get a lot of bang for your buck. I did the 92days without membership last year and now realize a lot of questions would have been answered in detail by the daily "wisdom" that the Rainosheks have compiled. The forum is busy with fellow global juice feasters but the member site is just some more extra value.

Awwwwww! Thanks you guys! We can't tell you how much notes like this mean to us!

With that, I will leave you with this morning's Green Juice Recipe enjoyed by David, Baby in the belly and I!

1/2 cucumber

1 zucchini
1 head of broccoli
1 head of romaine lettuce

4 leaves of kale
2 beets

2 apples

YUM!! And lots of calcium for growing baby bones and iron for little cells needing it!

Enjoy your juice dear friends, we hope to hear from you in The Green Room or on Global Juice Feast soon!



PS. If you haven't yet, check out the video in the post below for some folks discussing their health a year Post-Juice Feast!

Oh and PPS!! Angela Stokes' book A Juice Feaster's Handbook is an excellent addition to any Juice Feast! So is her blog!!

I'm squealing with delight that you all are back to blogging and that you'll be sharing some recipes for all of us as we move along this juice filled journey together! Thank you for featuring me today along with the beautiful & inspirational Courtney Pool. I tell everyone about your website, as I find so much vital information and knowledge there.

Love to you, David & baby!!

I found your blog by way of the fabulous Penni Shelton. This is my first time juice feasting and so far, so great. I'm feeling wonderful and have that euphoric feeling, ample energy, and a sense of calm and balance that I'm familiar with from previous fasts.

When I started this juice feast, I wasn't certain how long it would be - I'm aiming anywhere from 8 - 21 days. It's day 5 today, and I will certainly make it to day 8 and from there.... yesterday I sign up on your website Global Juice Feast 2009.

Congratulation to you both!!!

Hi Katrina! Bless you beautiful beings! I am so please with all the hard work you two have done to bring juice feasting to the world. I was the one that left the question wondering about the membership. I am just tight on money and was wondering the best bang for my buck. I did get a membership and am very please with the information that you two provide. I will more than likely prolong my membership now. :-) I wrote an email to David the other day with a few questions of concern and am hoping to hear back soon! I am sure you all are so busy tho! I mostly want to know why the pads on my fingers are so shriveled on this feast... (day 8 so far) my blog which you can share is

Hi Katrina
I have started a new blog for this year's feast - and it is my intent to do the full 92 days this year. It is located at

In your list of blogs, you have "Mary Wykes 18 Day Juice Feast" - FYI, for whatever reason, this link has never worked, so you may want to delete it.

This time around, the juicing feels quite natural - and I am not stressed at all. My husband's questions about juice feasting have also been resolved, and he is very supportive of my doing a long feast. He actually intends to drink 2 quarts of juice a day as well, and then eat a lot of other raw foods. Our diet has changed dramatically over the course of this past year.

I'm SO excited about your little one who is on the way. Can't wait to see who arrives!
