The Journey Part 2- Viktoras Event & Halloween

On Saturday (day 7 of our juice fast), we headed down to The Raw Retreat Mansion on the Palm Coast for a Viktoras Kulvinskas talk. Adam, another chef, and I made the dinner for the event - of course we couldn't eat any of it... but I was used to not eating by that point so temptation didn't seem to be an issue.

We made sure to hit the beach before heading into the kitchie for food prep. It was a gorgeous day!

It just so happens that my online friend Eva Rawposa lives in Jacksonville, and was the Viktoras talk so we got to meet in person! We had a grand time, she's such a sweetheart.

It was so fun to work in this beautiful kitchen! We had a hoot of a time!

Rawkin good times!
On the menu was:
Kale Salad - kale, avocado, tomato, celery, raisins, lemon juice, olive oil, himalayan salt.
Creamy Alfredo Noodles - kelp noodles, almonds, hemp seeds, miso, garlic, lemon juice, salt, apple cider vinegar, thai curry spice, smoked hot pepper.
Pear Sorbet with cinnamon sauce, cacao nibs, goji berries.

Would you believe we had to process our frozen pears through the juicer in the laundry room so as not to make noise in the kitchie while Viktoras was doing his talk. It was rather comical!

Pear Sorbet with Cacao/Goji Goodness on top!
The gals with Viktoras!
That evening we broke our fast with cantaloupe - we wanted watermelon but the store didn't have any... fortunately there was bounds it at the party so we indulged! Happy campers to be eating something again!
Hawaiian Hula Girl and The Juice Pimp!
We made a delish salad to bring to a Halloween party: cantaloup, pomegranate, lime juice, basil, himalayan salt

Pei-Pei and I
Us with Melissa, little devil girl!
That brings me to the end of our fast which was a fabulous experience. It's nice to know that I am capable of doing it! Felt great by the end: more energy, bit of weight loss (I know this because my clothes are loose) - which is something I am curious to track next time. I meant to weigh myself at the beginning to see how much I lost, but didn't get around to it.

If you haven't already, give it a try... with a friend or at a fasting center if possible. For me the support was key. I am already looking forward to my next fast!

    Hi. The menu sounds so good, I would like to try at least something from it. It seems you guys had fun during Halloween. It's hard to have kind of exotic atmosphere here in Toronto but all in all this Halloween was fun also here. I'm little bit sad that it's over, but I'm looking forward to plan next Halloween and I will probably try some good new recipes.<br /><br />Take care,<br />Ella

    You've also totally inspired me to do a juice fast starting monday which I'd bee putting off for so long... but was hoping for some detail on your experience: <br />-how many glasses of juice do you think you actually ended up having in one day (obviously don't need an exact one but is it 2 or 3 or closer to 5 or 6 or something...)<br />-also aside from water, what did you have? you mentioned 'other daily liquids'? <br />Thanks a bunch!

    Great pics, looks like a lot of fun and I'm tempted to try a juice fast.

    Your food looks great. I'm trying to get my kids to eat more raw and am enjoying your posts.

    Ash - ooooh yes we will! Gooooodddy!<br /><br />Ella - yeah I know what you mean about Toronto and exotic this time of year.... its why I have to fly south, i cant stand the cold, LOL<br /><br />Fitness! Ah! Wonderful, looking forward to hearing how it goes for ya!<br /><br />Thanks Deb!<br /><br />Chantal - If you go to this post, I mentioned the liquids. There was no set amount of juice I drank on any given day. There was enough green juice available to drink as much as I wanted, all day long, but I'd have to say on average I drank 3, 16 oz glasses... plus lots of water, most days a herb tea blend which Adam makes from scratch, 1/2 bottle of kombucha each most days... but I really feel its all individual. Whats best for me is different for the next person, etc... <br />congrats on taking the plunge! How long will u be fasting?<br /><br />Christine - you'll love it! If you can do it with someone else, even better!<br /><br />Raising - I look forward to raising raw kiddies too one day!! :) I will use your blog as inspiration!
