May it rest in peace...

Friday, March 28, 2014

I'm feeling so sad tonight. You see I had been really trying to change my eating habits by buying vegetables which I don't like. I tried motivating myself for months to eat them then decided maybe I should drink them. I discover I enjoyed that much better and it gave me more energy. I sacrificed eating to buy a lot of vegetables to juice which means I would only be able to eat for two weeks due to the expense of juicing. I was so hungry not having enough food but I wanted to juice with my veggies tonite I felt so motivated. I plugged my blender up for the 5th time and it just stopped working even before I got started. I cant return it because it was beyond the return date. I am so angry. I was so dedicated to exercises then both of my vcrs broke for absolutely no reason. But my juicer breaking is so painful, im hungry because I sacrificed food for vegetables, now my juicer doesn't work anymore and I am stuck with these green, purple and red thingies that I hate emoticon in my refrigerator Omggggggg. What am I going to do with cilantro and speariment how can I eat that alone? Oh my goodness gracious. I was so desperate I prayed over it, layed my bible on it and it still didn't work. I feel really down emoticon today ugh. I was blessed to even have one for the short time I had it. Maybe its paving the way for me to be blessed with a really good one someday. May it rest in peace...
Me and these veggies will be doing a stare emoticon down until I muster up the courage to eat them. pray a righteous prayer for me I am no where near perfect.

    I've enjoyed roasting veggies, and then putting them in soup. I've never tried eggplant in soup though. I completely commiserate with you about machines failing, I thought I was the only one with a reverse Midas-touch. hahaha

    with a hopeful, healing heart,

    psst. If God meant for us to be Paleo-Vegans, why did He wipe all but 8 off the planet with the Great Flood and then give us meat to eat? Just wondering.

    BTW. In the 1950s my father tried juicing, very popular in Los Angeles. He discovered drinking carrot juice caused his skin to turn orange. I told him that was appropriate, since he was then living in Orange County. hehehe emoticon

  • GLORY-
    I am so sorry this happened! I hate it when several things quit at the same time! I understand because I dont like vegetables either! I have tried all kinds of recipes. But I try a few bites between bites of things I like. I'd go to a buffet and get one bite of all kinds of veggies. Some I can eat raw because I cant stand them cooked, and vice versa LOL. I love fruit tho and some people eat fruit and vegetables together. You can start by putting just a tiny bit in a recipe of something you do like. I never liked to drink my veggies. Gradually I am learning to eat more.I was told roasting them makes all the difference in the taste. Things I dont like I can eat, if I roast them like shish-kabob with alittle smoke sauce- or grill them. I found one recipe here that has several veggies that are roasted together in the oven in foil. I only liked about 4 kinds, things I put in a salad. But for the past 2 months I have eaten 6 fruits and vegetables a day! Its a miracle!!. I used to eat just a couple a day if that many. I was a meat and potato person, and still am, but not near as often.

    Be very careful just doing fruit juicing( no more than 1-or 2 1/2's), it spikes your blood sugar, & shuts down your pancreas. Vegetables have minerals and help stabilize your bodies health(organ). You need to do the fiber of these otherwise you will have bowel problems. If you have sad moods, you need to eat more magnesium foods, and do healthy omega fats. eva

    It was such a tearful day it was. I was in a mini panic hating veggies and wanted to just be able to drink them. But realizing actually I believe it was a plan from the Most High to remove the comfort way of doing it and try it his way first to learn to love vegetables. Omgggggggggggg I am working on it its not easy but all things are possible....

    Yes when too many things seem to be happening that seem to say " Just stop and give it " it really is a sign your on the right track. Don't Give up. I didn't think I liked Avocado's for years and recently I feel in love with them. They are a super food so I try to eat one supper food every day. After a year of more of just keeping it my diet I couldn't find any for about three months I missed them. I finally found some and LOLOLO waited waited and waited some more for it to be ready to eat and I realized I loved it and I ate the whole thing raw. emoticon

    You asked how you start eating raw - we have a team RawFoodies -http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark
    /groups_individual.asp?gid=5031. Eating raw has to first be a mind set - Genesis 1:28-29 provides the background. Not sure how you eat now, but transitioning is a great idea to a vegetarian - vegan and the raw. I have been 100% raw vegan, and now I feel balanced between some cooked and mostly raw. I have had great success in this journey as my diabetes is healing as well as my spirit. Here is another website that gives some tips http://earthmother-intheraw.blogspo
    tion-to-raw-foods.html, as well of course the team. Be gentle with yourself and take your time for the battle is not won by the swift, but by the one that endures to the end. Have a wonderful day of love!

    I make spaghetti and put a whole pack of chopped green peppers and chopped onions in it to get in my veggies. Also fajitas are good ways to get in some veggies. I agree with you, I dont like veggies by themselves.

    Hope the issue with the blender is just where fiber plugged it up. I only buy veggies that I like. Occasionally I might add one at a time. Do not give up on veggies. Veggies plus protein are filling and with a few complex carbs are doable and lead to weight loss. Simple carbs such as white bread, rolls, etc. and added sugars such as cakes, pies, candy tend to add on pounds.

    Daviiy, this is the first time I've ever heard you down so it must be bad. I'll be praying for you that God gives you a solution. Did you get regular veggies besides the herbs? I'll be if you go online and google the veggies and how to cook them they'll show you different recipes and who knows you might enjoy them well at least till you can get other food in the house. My heart hurts for you. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I totally get it.
    You could try roasting your veggies in virgin oil until it's almost crunchy on the edges! yum, man I love that with lite salt and pepper. Ok maybe this isn't the right recipe for lettuce emoticon
    You can use the herbs also: spearmint makes a great tea!

    I have many veggies red cabbage, celery, cilantro, spinach, cucumber, spearemint and others cant remember at the moment. I like salad, cucumbers, and I will eat the spinach. They wont take it back I used to supervise at the store. Its a done deal. I appreciate being able to even use it five times for the time I had it. Its a shame but this is just one of those downs in life....

    Im going to study my word or else I will be swimming in tears. Im not working right now which saddens me and wont be able to buy a new juicer but I am going to keep pushing forward without it.
    Me and those veggies will be doing a stare down until I get the courage to eat them.

    OMG...I would still try to return the juicer! It should not have broken that soon. All they
    Can say is no...and if it is from a reliable story they should take it back! I know Kohls and a few others will take things back anytime! I think you need to buy veggies to juice but not exclude other foods! Make sure you have other food,
    Ike protein, to eat! Is there no veggies you like? None? Even if there are only three, like green beans, cucumbers and lettuce, it is still enough to buy and eat those regularly. Do you eat salad? Do you eat sweet potatoes or tomatoes?
    Good luck!
