Win This Book!

Hi Everybody!
Where have I been? To a family reunion that was awesome, but too short. And dealing with no water in the house (The underground water service line to our house broke. It's fixed now, but that is a story into itself). I learned a lot, but first...

I have a book giveaway contest!

I received a copy of Juicing, Fasting, and Detoxing for Life by Cherie Calbom from her publisher. I've read it, highlighted it and have decided to do a colon cleanse, then liver/gallbladder cleanse, and then a kidney cleanse. All of that should take 4 weeks. I will document it all when I start.

Mrs. Calbom is Nutritionist with a degree from Bastyr University, which is one of the few naturopathic medical colleges in the country. What I loved about the book was not only her science background and obvious knowledge about food, but that she emphasizes vegetable juices and soups, rather than fruit. I have one of her other books, Juicing for Life, and she said that in the past she focused too much on fruit juices, which can make the body acidic.

Like my aversion to salads, I've definitely had an aversion to vegetable juice. I'll admit to avoiding them. My juices and smoothies, if you remember from my 14 day fast, had a lot of fruit in them. I felt great, but I'm willing to go to the extra step to veggie juice with 1/2 an apple or pear or lemon or lime as the sweetener.

The book is divided into:
-The Secrets of Vibrant Health
-Juicing for Life
-Fasting for Life
-Detoxing for Life
-Colon Cleansing for Vibrant Health
-Liver, Gallbladder, and Kidney Cleansing
-More Detox Programs (Skin, Parasite, Candida, Lymphatic, Heavy Metals)
-Mental and Emotional Cleansing
-The A to Z Guide to the Nutrient Content of Foods
-Recipes for Fasting and Detoxing

So there's four copies of the book available to win! Trust me: this is a keeper. If you've got any health issue from chronic exhaustion to diabetes, this book will help you. So the contest question is:
What made you interested in a raw vegan diet?

You can be serious, funny, inspirational...whatever you like. You don't have to be 100% raw, just interested. The entries will be judged and I'll notify the winners. If you're okay with having an excerpt of your entry on my blog, please let me know when you email your entry to me at

Next time, I'll talk about the water main break and I'll get back to the steps in your raw journey.
