Break(ing)fast

I have fasted for 9 days - today I will break my fast.

I have be on a juice (and occasionally popcorn) fast. I begin my day with an ounce of chlorophyll mixed in water and a table spoon of ‘green food’ mixed in more water.

Some days I will make myself a decaf soy (unsweetened) latte – but I find I don’t drink hardly half of it.

Other days, I make air-popped popcorn with brewer’s yeast, garlic powder and flaxseed oil & munch on it occasionally. I make several pots of cleansing tea during the day. Sometimes I’ll blend some organic fruit and lots of water & sip on that all day too.

As long as I’ve been pretty sedentary, fasting has been easy. I’ve marched up my mountain ever few days, walked a couple miles here & there – but mostly I’ve rested, read, wrote, stayed inside.

Wednesday I traveled to S.F. for the culmination of the fast in the city. This was my first trip out since I began fasting. I returned home exhausted and less committed to fasting.

Yesterday, I had to make my deliveries and unload the truck – today I have more deliveries to make. I need nourishment. I will break my fast.

I will go out for Dim Sum - yeah!!!!
