31 Days of Juicing. Day 31: Papaya Juice

I’m not sure what the heck you are thinking if you live in the south and don’t have a papaya tree or two, or three, in your backyard. Go outside and plant one now. Next year at this time you will have big, beautiful, juicy papayas and you will love me thank me. They are seriously that delicious.

Of course I didn’t eat one today, I juiced it. I’m still in Florida visiting Gigi – my business partner/friend. The other day her neighbor, Dr. Nune, brought us two of her papayas and we juiced them this morning. BEST. JUICE. EVER. Seriously. The glass above is a whole papaya, 5 strawberries, a kiwi and a pear. Need I say more? Yum. Saturday or Sunday she is bringing us her homemade yogurt and I can’t wait for a spoonful!

I’m planning on ending the 30 day Juice-Only-Fast after Friday, so I’ll keep blogging about it for another day or two. I am going to deserve a medal or something by then because we’re heading to Epcot in Orlando for the Food and Wine Festival. So excited about that, but even more excited because I finally get to meet Gigi’s BFF’s Chef Art Smith and his spouse Jesus (Hay-soos) – an amazing artist.

I mentioned Oil Swooshing yesterday. It’s really called Oil Pulling and it is some amazing stuff. This week I’ve been a human guinea pig so I can report back to you the results. I’ll probably do that on Sunday since the next few days are┬áreally busy.

Oh, did I mention I’ve lost another 5 lbs since Sunday… Yay!

Stay tuned for lots of fun stuff tomorrow from Epcot! xo Amy
